It's going to be a very big game

On Sunday, December 23rd, there will be a football game played in Seattle, Washington.  These late season games are not all not meaningful, except...

  • The game is one of two shots the Seahawks, one of the best teams in the League, have to reach the playoffs.
  • Since Harbaugh rubbed his face in it, Pete Carroll appears to have cultivated a bit of his own killer instinct, made all the more endearing by his earnest apologies afterward.
  • The Seahawks have the best rookie quarterback in the division that did not beat the Patriots on their home field this week.
  • The 49ers have the best NFL defense that doesn't feature psychotic cyborg cornerbacks from the future.  
  • The 49ers are bound to be confident after beating the Patriots in Foxborough in December, an accomplishment as difficult and elusive as the discovery of the Higgs boson.
  • The Seahawks are bound to be confident after winning their last two games 58-0 and 50-17. 

I am going to go out on a limb and say is a largish game, maybe even a big game.

Who am I kidding, of course it's a big game.  It's a HUGE game.  It's make-or-break for two teams that have won nothing, and have everything to prove, to themselves, to one another, and to a sports media elite that thinks the western frontier of the United States of America is the Mississippi River.

How big is this game?  It's going to make Roadhouse look like This Old House.  It's going to make Last Man Standing look like Last Year at Marienbad.  It's going to make Alexander Nevsky look like The Big Lebowski.  It's going to make Victory at Sea look like the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.  

It's going to be a Big Game!

Please do! I view this construction as the highest development of the rhetorical arts.

My favorite in this vein, saved only for the most exceptional occasions:

It's going to make Deliverance look like Riverdance.

It's going to make Hard Boiled look like lightly poached with a sprig of parsley served with free trade coffee with non-dairy creamer.

I'm sorry, I can't seem to get that one right:

It's going to make Hard Boiled look like lightly poached with a sprig of parsley served with free trade coffee, Splenda, and non-dairy creamer.

Thank you.
