Rantankerous: So, this is why we play the game?

Rantankerous [ran-tank'uhr-us] (adjective) - A combination of rant [to speak in a wild or extravagant manner] and cantankerous [contentious, disagreeable]. The word is the only suitable description for the arguments between Brian "What We Learned" Tynes and George "Hot Reads" Jones.

(RNN) - Hopefully, you had a backup plan for Sunday night, because the Super Bowl imploded and left little for salvaging.

On the bright side, everything that was non-football related was exciting. Well, except for the commercials.

Brian would beg to differ about the latter point, but this is the same man who drafted a team for the Puppy Bowl. The Puppy Bowl.

As for George, who is now convinced he is the only true sports fan between the two, the game could not have ended fast enough. He was dominating with the Cleveland Browns on Madden 25, and he wanted to get to his next game. Maybe the real-life Browns would have given the Seahawks a tougher fight.

By the way, opening ceremonies for the Olympics start Friday. Let's all get geared up for highly subjective, politically infused contests [sometimes sports] that capture the attention of the entire world.

In other words, we may want to prepare for a second major disappointment this week.

    Your Cape Fear Region composite model for Wednesday afternoon continues to sensibly suggest variable clouds, a passing sprinkle or shower possibility, and temperatures mainly in the 70s amid west or southwest breezes.

    The storm that slugged the Cape Fear Region with multiple inches of rain Monday and Tuesday will swirl over the Mid-Atlantic Region for most of the rest of the week. Its "just far enough away" position will allow for a pattern of lower - not zero, but lower - rain chances and seasonably warm temperatures locally.
