The ‘Coldocolypse’ game in Green Bay

Last night, the Packers and 49ers palyed…yadda yadda….

What people couldn’t stop talking about was the frigid temperatures at the “Coldocolypse” game, which was among the coldest games ever played – and everyone was feeling it, if the social media chatter was any indication.

One of their corespondents used the hashtag #howcoldisit” to document the ridiculousness of the game – and it was pretty hilarious.

Now Trending on Facebook: Week of September 1

A lot of stuff has been heating up our Facebook page this week, here’s a peek at what’s been hot:

  • Syria has been the big news topic all week, and it was the most commented-on topic on our page. Here’s the most popular thought: Teresa Kovalick “Stay out of it…..stop trying to be the ‘savior’ to every country in the world. We need to take of our own country. Get jobs back in the US, help people get housing, take care of the children, elderly and disabled that are neglected here.”
  • The Bloom Fair lifting the firearms ban was also a big topic, probably the most divisive we had this week. Here’s out most popular thought there: Brach William “I am 100% for the right to carry (a big hunter and recreational shooter myself), but sorry to say, the Bloomsburg Fair, or any other fair for that matter, is NOT the place to have a gun. Some crazed nut job who gets angered over a game that they think was rigged or a person that butts in line could potentially pull the gun and end up injuring or killing someone. Congrats to those people who felt the need to make this a massive demonstration just to prove a ‘point.’ You have made me and a lot more people all the more hesitant to visit the fair this year.”
  • A squeaker topic, which garnered some interest was the photo of John McCain playing poker during the Syria hearings, with most people saying he was in the wrong. Here’s the photo:g258000000000000000de5a43ac61a470c9e6d7cc50c3c47ecbd3ea4799

Valley Super Bowl predictions: Who was closest?

Super_Bowl_XLVII_logo Last week, I asked the Valley’s high school football coaches to predict who would emerge from this weekend’s NFL playoff games victorious and live on to fight for the Super Bowl title.

Now, it’s time to see who was the closest.

NFC championship game: San Francisco 49er’s vs. Atlanta Falcons

Most of the five polled coaches predicted a 49er victory, so this competition comes down to who guessed the closest to the final score – 28-24.

George Goodwin, of Milton, predicted the Niner’s final tally of 28, but he predicted the Falcons would be farther off at 10.

Jeremy Winn, of Lewisburg also predicted a 28-point feat for San Francisco, and he had Atlanta at 17 – one touchdown away from their final tally.

Winn wins this round.

AFC championship game: New England Patriots vs. Baltimore Ravens

In this round, only two coaches predicted Baltimore as the victor – Winn and Jim Keiser, of Danville.

So who was closer to the final score?  It’s tough to say.

Keiser predicted a  24-21 game, and Winn predicted a 38-35 game – the actual final score was 28-13.

So it’s a tough call, though I have to hand it to Keiser, who guessed on the side of a lower-scoring game.

Overall

But the overall winner of this “guess the winner challenge” is Jeremy Winn, who picked both winners, and was extremely close on the AFC game.

Congrats, Coach Winn!
