This week's "Games of the Weak" is brought to you by Dennis Miller. (Someone should get him on a perpendicular, vehicular homicide or something.)
 
Welcome to the first installment of the "Games of the Weak." I'm Roy Bellamy. Basically I find the worst games or mismatched games on the docket and trash them. Every week is sponsored by some idiot from sports. No, I will not sponsor next week's "Games of the Weak."
 

NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE:
 
Indianapolis @ St. Louis > Advantage - Rams
I don't know, maybe I'm being mean, but the Colts suck. And it's not because I'm a Dolphin fan. I just don't see the Colts going anywhere with Jim "Moron" as its coach.
 
Minnesota @ Green Bay > Advantage - Packers
You know even if it wasn't the Vikings I'd go with the Packrats anyway. I mean they're at Lambeau. But these are the lowly Vikings, my high school team with the same mascot could beat these wimps. Oh, did I mention Moss? He's growing like his namesake in a bad way.
 
Chicago @ Detroit > Advantage - Push
Hey, Detroit came off their first win.
 
Dishonorable Mention: Buffalo @ New York Jets, Arizona @ Carolina, Pittsburgh @ Cincinnati, and Seattle @ San Diego.
 

NATIONAL BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION:
 
Miami @ Atlanta, Dec. 27 
Memphis @ Miami, Dec. 28
Miami @ Detroit, Dec. 30
Need I say more?
 
Chicago @ Memphis, Dec. 26
Chicago @ Dallas, Dec. 27
Cleveland @ Chicago, Dec. 29
Do you think that Chicago can actually win a game with a new coach? I salute you Tim Floyd, you made the right decision.
 

NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE:
 
Florida @ Atlanta, Dec. 26 > Advantage - Push
They both suck. But Florida has a new coach in Mike Keenan, maybe they're getting better. This is a divisional game, so they have to win.
 
Anaheim @ Los Angeles, Dec. 27 > Advantage - Kings
Anaheim had coach Bryan Murray. Florida had general manager/coach Bryan Murray. Coincidence? Don't think so.
 
Those are probably the dawgs of the week there. Anyone watching those games are diehard fans. Well, I guess I'd better get to the Panthers game tomorrow.
 
Good week.
