Summertime Blahs

I know I haven't been posting much lately-- bad case of the summertime blahs has set in. Weather is hot and sticky, my allergies are bugging me, and it's just a lot easier to watch poker on TV or do some routine stuff at the office than to try and be creative. Just so that I'm not a total wanker, here's the list of 11 finalists to replace Paul Tagliabue as NFL Commissioner:

Umm... never mind. Seems that nobody knows who's on that list of 11. Including the NFL Owners who are supposed to vote on it in two weeks. There are times when the NFL really does remind you of a severly autocratic, arbitrary theocracy whose policies and procedures are so murky as to be pretty much opaque. Then you watch the games and draft your fantasy football teams and somehow offering up your allegiance to the high-priests of football seems a small price to pay to get that junkie fix you've been craving for seven months.

Training camps start opening this week. The Hall of Fame game is a week from Sunday (Oak v. Phi).

King Football Returns!


The NFL isn’t half as whacky as the NCAA. Now only have they decided to be ‘sensitive’ and force colleges to reject any non-politically correct mascot, but they’ve never got around to working out a real championship structure for college football. They’re happy to work out minority quotas, both for coaching staffs and their own staff, but they don’t have the time to create and implement an end-season strategy.

College Football is the greatest sport out there. Its too bad the NCAA doesn’t know it.
