“Those Rackets Were Paid For”

I have no idea what this means, but here’s how it went: For some reason I was hanging out at this weird hotel/restaurant/airport hybrid place — a kind of all-purpose building that existed to serve travel-related needs. There was a large conveyor belt running right through the middle of it that carried miscellaneous items from […]

Cross Your Fingers

Jay Payton just left today’s Orioles-Twins game with an injury that happened somewhere between second and third base. No word yet on exactly what it was or how serious it might be. Let’s hope it’s nothing. Freddie Bynum pinch-ran, and was promptly picked off third base. update: looks like it could be worse.

NFL Inquest, pre-Super Bowl Edition

I waited a little long to get to this week’s Inquest, but I figure that’s OK. We have a blank weekend after all. As far as last week’s games, there’s nothing I can add here that hasn’t already been said. You watched ’em. You know how incredible that Colts comeback was, and you know that […]

More Housekeeping…

I’m about to upgrade this site to the latest version of WordPress, and I’m a bit nervous about that. It’ll probably be fine, but if you stop by and things look odd then that’s why. That was easy.

NFL Inquest, 2 of 3 (NFC)

It’s Still Comcraptic!

Technical difficulties abound…my internet connection is sporadic at best right now, and it hasn’t been on enough for me to get anything done around here. It’ll be a small miracle if it stays live long enough for this post to go through. I can’t tell you how much I loathe Comcast. Essentially, there’s a problem […]

It’s Comcraptic!

I owe you a whole heap of Hot (Stove) Action, and my plan was to lay it at your feet last night while I watched the Steelers-Browns game and sipped a heady brew of hot apple cider and Jack Daniel’s (try it sometime — trust me). But alas, it was not to be. First the […]

NFL Inquest, Week Seven

Break Out the Henny and Swishers That gentleman to the left is Wolfgang Schneider, or as I like to call him, The Schneid. And somehow, the Oakland Raiders have found a way to stop riding him. The Loss Column joins you in mourning the loss of a history-making 0-16 campaign. Dude, the Super Bowl’s Totally […]
