Top 50 Songs of 2016

Before we get into the countdown playlist, I got some catching up to do on some FJFs. So here are my FJFs from 12/23 and 12/30:

Now on to what really matters. I started out with 150 songs I wanted to include on this top 50 playlist. 150 is way too much. 50 is a good amount for a playlist so I once again did the impossible and dwindled the original selection down to the top 50 songs released in 2016. Top albums is coming later.

Some of the big winners: The Chainsmokers not just because they had the song of the summer and ultimately song of the year with Closer, but because they have 3 other songs in this top 50. Hell of a year for them. Jake Owen with 3 songs in the top 26 and is a contender for album of the year. NEEDTOBREATHE put out a great album this year and has 2 songs in the top 50, letting everyone know who the fuck they are. 

Well that's it. Enjoy NYE with this fire top 50 countdown.

The Vikings Getting an Extra Home Game in 2017 is Hogwash

Why do you think the Vikings twitter is so excited about this game? Because it's a 9th home game, that's why. You might be thinking (if you're even reading this) to yourself "What in the world are you talking about? The game is in London, the Vikings play in Minnesota." But lucky for you, I happen to be an absolute stud when it comes to maps and geography, I know how to use Google, I love history, and I consider myself to be decently woke at most times. And if there were ever a time to #StayWoke it would be right here. Because the Minnesota Vikings just schemed themselves into a 9th home game in 2017. And here's why:

Minnesota Vikings fans truly believe that they are Vikings. They aren't just fans, they're real Vikings. Where do Vikings come from, you may ask? Well, here's a history lesson for you. They come from Scandinavia, which is in Europe. Particularly Sweden, Norway and Denmark. London also happens to be in Europe. And due to the fact that Europe is fucking embarrassingly small to the tune of Europeans all using the same currency like losers, I thought the Vikings might be onto something here. And here is where I used my pretty solid research skills. 

Flight Time from Cleveland, OH to Cleveland, OH: 0 hours and 0 minutes
Flight Time from Minneapolis, MN to Cleveland, OH: 1 hour and 43 minutes

Flight Time from Cleveland, OH to London, UK (for Cleveland fans' "Home" game): 8 hours
Flight Time from Oslo, Norway to London, UK (for Vikings' "Road" game): 1 hour and 56 minutes

Now it doesn't take a mathematician to realize that the Vikings will have a distinct advantage in this game in London. Imagine if it were in Cleveland? Vikings fans (aka real Vikings) would be severely outnumbered by Cleveland fans in their dawg masks and dawg pound signs screaming their heads off begging for a victory they haven't gotten in 2 seasons. In London however? Well judging by travel time and logistics, you might see even more of a lopsided advantage when it comes to the fan base representation...just with the teams flipped. Real Vikings will travel from Oslo, Copenhagen and Stockholm to see their team finally play across the pond on their side of the world, while Cleveland fans struggle with bank-breaking flight prices and turn away due to the 8 hour plane ride and time changes all in just one weekend. Even the Browns fans that do make it out to London will be so tired they won't be the same Browns fans that cheer their team to 0 wins every season anyway. These Scandinavian Vikings fans will be so savage at this game they might just murder all the Browns fans and make the home field advantage complete for the Minnesota Vikings. Don't be surprised to see the Minnesota Vikings feel right at home in Minneapolis despite being in London come fall 2017. #Skol indeed.

College Football Roundup: Week 13

Alright I'm gonna be honest here. I've gotten tired of writing out all 25 teams. Some of those teams just STINK and I don't wanna talk about them. I'm just gonna roll through some of last week's rivalry games as we gear up for championship weekend. Which starts TONIGHT with some solid games. 

So obviously Alabama was too much for Auburn in the Iron Bowl. Auburn had plenty of chances though but Bama's redzone defense was too stingy. Forced Auburn into 4 field goals. Unreasonable to expect all of those drives to be touchdowns, but if they did turn into TDs instead of FGs then it would have been a lot closer and a lot better of a game. Instead it was a 30-12 rout. 

Michigan Ohio State was a great game, per usual. The number 2 and 3 teams in the country went into double OT before an absolutely absurd spot on fourth down led to the Buckeyes victory. I still don't think there's anyway that JT Barrett got across the line to gain. But oh well. Ohio State came away with the 30-27 win. Everyone seems to think the Buckeyes are in automatically now even though they don't even get to play for their conference title, while Michigan has to sit and pray for help.

Clemson murdered South Carolina in cold blood. Deshaun reminded everyone that he's really good. Mike Williams is a god damn freak. And everything else was pretty damn fun to watch too. Great send off at Death Valley for the seniors/leaving early juniors as well.

Washington throttled Washington State as well. Not a very exciting game.

Kentucky upset pathetic Louisville. That team has become laughable.

Florida State continues to be too good for Florida. 

For Championship Weekend, here are my predictions:

Washington takes care of Colorado
Western Michigan takes care of Ohio
Clemson beats Virginia Tech
Bama crushes Florida
Oklahoma State upsets Oklahoma for the de facto Big 12 championship
Navy runs all over Temple
Wisconsin beats Penn State

1. Alabama
2. Clemson
3. Washington
4. Ohio State
