Monday Night’s KGN was a must-watch for the loyal fan base of KGN (whom I love and adore deeply). I had a good friend of mine and of the show Iron Mike Vella come on as a guest for the episode and as I was giving away hints of the glass I made a blunder as you can see in the video below.
Messing up my NFL Divisions is something I don’t take lightly. To forget the Miami Dolphins were in the AFC East getting dominated by the Pats the past 20 years (besides the times they win at the very last minute) is almost inexcusable.
Just before I went downstairs to record last night’s episode of KGN I was shutting by bedroom door and shut it on my left ring finger (see picture).
Even though I was in physical pain and my mind was elsewhere I decided to go on with last night’s episode of KGN – there’s a saying in show business, “The show must go on”. So with this lingering injury on the back of my mind I did what I set out to do and hosted the show. Mike was funny and brought great energy and the viewers were interacting well, I gave the hint – “this team is in the AFC South” and then realized they were in fact in the AFC East.
But let me show you a map of the NFL Divisions and you tell me what makes sense.
I copied and pasted this off Google but it proves my point. The AFC East comprises of 4 teams; the Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, New York Jets, and Buffalo Bills. Why is Miami in that division? When you think of Miami – what’s the first direction you think of? South. No one says, “I’m going on vacation to the east coast” in reference to Miami. I’m not gonna touch on the Dallas Cowboys being in the NFC East – cause that division is always a coinflip on whose going to win it – so that’s fine. But let me depress you for one moment as I’m currently realizing this as I’m typing, the Indianapolis Colts do not belong in the AFC South. It makes little to no sense. Instead, if the NFL was smart in 2002 when they realigned the divisions the last time. They could have put the Dolphins in the AFC South with the Texans, Jags and Titans. Making the Colts the 4th member of the AFC East. So instead of Tom Brady and Belichick competing against (basically nobody) for 2 decades. We could have had Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning play twice a season for the better part of a decade or so. I can’t be the first person to have thought of this but the big question is why didn’t they think of it in 2002? I’m telling you we could have had upwards of 30 meetings between the two greatest QB’s of our young millennium.
what were we talking about?
