What we have up above, ladies and gentlemen, is the birth of cable TV’s next great villain. This past Sunday, while most of America was watch the San Francisco 49ers beat the brakes off of the Detroit Lions, viewers of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire were introduced to Nucky Thompson’s main antagonist of the season – Gyp Rosetti. Armed with a sharp tongue and a proclivity for brutality, Mr. Rosetti is certain to make things difficult for Nucky and his crew of bootleggers and crooked politicians. Although he’ll more than likely end up a bullett riddled corpse by season’s end, his rise should be well worth the season long watch.
Moving on to tonight’s game – I’m taking the Panthers over the Giants. Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart will sit out tonight’s matchup with a banged up toe while the Giants will be without both running back Ahmad Bradshaw and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks. Look for Cam Newton to out-duel Eli tonight in Carolina
