Color Commentary

If I never again hear Troy Goddamned Aikman use that extraneous "what" construction -- "McNabb is playing better than what he expected to" -- it'll be too soon. Just sayin'.

First quarter just over, and I'm picking Philly. We'll see if I have to eat my words.

Oh, and: In the car coming home from the grocery store, we listened to Springsteen's performance of "The Rising" at the Inaugural event at the Lincoln Memorial. I'm afraid I lost it a bit.

Update, 1:10 left in the first half... Boy, I sure can pick 'em, can't I?

Update, 25-24 Philly up... Boy, I sure can pick 'em, can't I?

Update, Arizona wins, 32-25... Boy, I sure can pick 'em, can't I?

Great game. Why I loves me some American Football.

as in holy crap, the Cards in the big one!!!!!!!!

Roger Wehrli and Jim Hart and Johnny Roland and Bill Triplett and the stars of my youth must be all tingly, just like me.

The migratory Cards are originally from the south side Chicago and apparently anything with a south side connection is golden now. Not so much for the north side - cubs, rod blajoevic, etc. Hillary's a north sider too (well, suburban north side) Although by this logic I should be doin a lot better...
