    Hey, how about a little sensitivity? They are not hillbillies but "genetic diversity challenged".

    True. I still prefer playing the one we have not played this season if it is possible. It makes for more adjustments by both teams. In NCAA hoops we see some teams play 3 and even 4 times in a season. It gets too predictable.

    Penny Lane is in Liverpool, the Woolton area I think, and I believe you might mean a fish finger pie not a fish AND finger pie. A fish finger is a three inch long piece of fish which is dipped in egg and breadcrumbs and is delicious on a sandwich with mayonnaise or tartar sauce.

    For those still scratching their heads, they played two regular-season games against the Bears in 2010 as usual. However, one was played on the last game of the regular season, which also happened to fall on January 2, 2011. Three weeks later they again played the Bears, this time in the NFCCG. Thus they topped-out at three games played vs the Bears for a single season thanks to the playoff game but that made four games played during a single calendar year. I had forgotten about that quirk since it happened almost a decade ago. Tempus fugit.

    When the alternative is the San Francisco 49ers, in California, where we didn't even look like we belonged in the NFL both times we went out there this year, I'll take my chances with a 3rd predictable game.

    Maybe the team can't, but a player could conceivably beat the same team 5 times in a single season. I will let you figure out the math on how one would accomplish that. :D

    Brilliant!

    I was taking into account playoffs, which you could only face the same team once, due to the trade deadline. However, with multiple trades, I guess, conceivably a guy could face the Bears in week 1 and get traded each week to the team about to face the Bears. Up until the trade deadline, when he would be traded to a North Division Rival, face the Bears twice more in the regular season and once in the playoffs. Bringing the grand total to......

    11 games against the same opponent in one year.

    You point with fingers. We'll stick with sticks.
    Are fish fingers minced fish or are they more like fillets? I've had both. Fish sticks are cheaper and typically smaller than the fillets.
