Thursday, August 28, 2003 NFL - New run-stuffers will make difference for Bills, Pats: "'The guy is a human eclipse, he's so wide, and he just camps in there like a squatter and dares people to try to move him,' New England inside linebacker Ted Johnson said. 'Getting him in here was huge, man, in every sense of the word.'" I just loved that quote..."Human Eclipse"....Ha!

Wednesday, August 27, 2003 has a couple cool links to some sports "How To" articles. First is one on How to throw 5 baseball pitches and the second is how to calculate such things as ERA and QB Rating. For those who always wanted to know these age old mysteries, there you are. By the way, they require the Macromedia Flash Player.

Don't miss this excellent Op-Ed by Rush in yesterday's Wall Street Journal.
Zogby News! has a new poll on Pres. Bush out. This guy used to be pretty accurate, but right after 9/11, he seemed to take the War on Terrorism as declared by Bush as some sort of clandestine attack on all Arab Americans. Ever since, he's been whining all over the talk shows. Now, his latest polls show that, supposedly, a plurality would rather have someone else as President. Right. Although, I guess if I took a random poll of "likely voters" over a weekend in the middle of August, I'd get all sorts of average Americans who weren't out with the family or friends, right? Read the numbers for yourself and check them against your own experience. Just doesn't ring true, does it?

Ok, I'm back, the Sox are shaky but the Pats are on the Horizon, and this news that they just acquired the mammoth Ted Washington (365 pounds) to play nose tackle in their defense could mean big things. The pass rush and defense looks excellent while the run D still looks suspect. Washington will help. Meanwhile, earlier in the day, they signed Corbin Lacina to provide some much needed O-Line depth. It's all about the Lines in football, folks. The better you are at the lines, both Defensive and Offensive, the better the whole team is. Regardless of how successful both of these pickups are, it continues to show the proactive nature of Pioli in Belichick.

Bill Reynolds says all I want or probably will say about the Kobe Bryant case, except for one point. The fact that Kobe is at the very least an adulterer is another example of one "evil" being eclipsed by the heinousness of another "evil", albeit an unproven one up to this point. Kobe backers are lining up and most seem to be dismissing his adultery as no big thing. A shame.
