  • The Chimera of Football

    Chimera Chimaera

    Fire-breathing she-monster of fantastic proportions, having the head of a lion, the body of a goat, and the tail of the serpent, symbolic of a volcanic mountain in Lycia upon whose top resorted lions, the middle goats, and the bottom serpents. It was said to be the child of Echidna and Typhon and was slain by Bellerophon.

    In medieval heraldry, the Chimera represented the impossible.


    Watching that game against the Falcons....I had what we writers call a "moment of clarity". I am quite fond of mythical beasts and the Rams remind me of exactly that. A MYTHICAL BEAST!

    Many try to "vanquish" them and fail. Like a mighty dragon, they strike their opponents down quickly and with impossible force. Unseemingly, they are impressive to behold, even by those who despise them. Their skills are monolithic as compared to the average NFL team.

    Next week, San Francisco will try to be the Knight that will attempt the impossible. They will enter the lair of the Chimera and fight to the "divisional" death. In every way this game will tell who will be the reining divisional champs and who will be the wildcard. After the game against the Bills, the answer is no longer as clear...as some would hope. :nerd:

    "In great attempts, it is glorious even to fail."

    uhhhh.....

    Atlas,

    I am speechless buddy. I swear, you just never know what pleasantries will pop up out of this thing. I am smack dab in the middle of the Lord of the Rings, just finished Fellowship of the Rings. So, this was cool. :lid: :lid:

                Atlas...

                At least you don't live in Texass, where we didn't get to see either the Rams\***** or the Bears\Pack. We got to watch Dallas and some other meaningless game. Thanks GOD for Direct TV and Sunday Ticket...
