Happy Friday everyone! Since we last met, the Patriots lost to the Steelers, and the Celtics are in the midst of a 2-game losing streak.  Paul George and James Harden are going nuclear, while LeBron James was blocked (which according to Max Kellerman, means he’s done).  Josh Gordon hit a road block on the road to recovery (we wish him well), and Tom Brady might have an MCL tear.  As the NFL season makes its way towards a conclusion, it is playoff scenario season, as 14 teams are vying for the 7 remaining playoff spots in the league.  And finally, next Tuesday is Christmas Day, which means TONS of great basketball.

With that, allow us at Hold My Drink Sports to wish you a wonderful holiday season.

Andy is away this week in Minnesota, so we have Mike (who made his debut to the page this past week) filling in for him.

Welcome back to Who to Watch!  Just last night we witnessed a GREAT football game between the Chargers and Chiefs, as Los Angles came back to win 29-28.  Dwyane Wade and LeBron James faced off for the final time, the Celtics winning streak continued, and the Raptors DESTROYED Golden State… WITHOUT KAWHI.  In the NFL, the Patriots lost in the final seconds to Miami after a miracle succession of laterals and inferior defense (WHY WAS GRONK OUT THERE!?), the Steelers lost (again), and the Cowboys won (again).

The Patriots and Steelers face off this Sunday in what will surely be another classic game between the two, but other good games across the NBA and NFL are on the docket for the next week.

Here’s who we’re watching in those games.

Welcome to another edition of Who to Watch!

Since we last met, the Rams clinched a playoff birth, Mark Sanchez was seen on a football field, and Gordon Hayward came back to life.  OBJ and Tarik Cohen threw some touchdowns, Cam Newton threw a lot of interceptions, and Phillip Lindsey continues to make every GM in the NFL stupid for not drafting him.  Contrary to popular belief, LeBron James is not washed. Oh, and a belated happy birthday to the Greek Freak, who turned 24 yesterday… that’s right, nowhere near his peak, folks.

Lets see who the crew* has their eyes on for this upcoming week

*Kerm was not able to contribute this week.  He’s been working hard in the lab with 808s and Ankle Breaks (LISTEN HERE), so we forgive him.

Happy Friday everyone, and we hope you did not miss us too much.  Between our last visit and now, Baker Mayfield put the Browns “IN THE HUNT,” the Dallas Cowboys won three (3) games, the Los Angeles Clippers became the top seed in the West, and my Boston Celtics continue to look… bad.  With the final handful of weeks in the NFL regular season upon us, and the NBA season 25% complete (more on that here), December looks to be an intriguing month.

Here’s who we’ll be keeping an eye out for over the course of this next week.

Who to Watch (November 16 – November 22)

What a week, huh? Jimmy Butler is traded.  Melo is sent to Siberia.  Draymond calls KD a bitch and to GTFO.  We love the NBA around here.

There was intrigue with the NFL too.  Brady looks… human.  The game of the year needs to move from Mexico City to Los Angeles (have you guys SEEN that field!? Horrible).  Le’Veon Bell will not come back this season, at which point his teammates decided to take his stuff (finders keepers, right?)

As fascinating as the off the field/court news is, we’ll keep on how the players are playing.  Lets see what Fredy, Andy, Kerm, and Nick are thinking…

OH! And an EARLY Happy Thanksgiving from us here at the Hold My Drink Sports team!
