WMD found in Iraq, discarded.


And I'm a winner too, because my Purdue graduate wife didn't even make me sleep on the couch afterwards!

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Maryland methodically and meticulously put away Purdue - and looked nothing like the team that ended the regular season with two lopsided losses.

Sam Hollenbach passed for 223 yards and two touchdowns, Lance Ball rushed for 98 yards, and the Terrapins won the Champs Sports Bowl 24-7 on Friday night.

How To Respond To Your Critics

Boll grabbed the microphone. "[Bleep!] critics!" he bellowed. "I hit them so hard they have brain damage! They love my movies now!"

PS: I love how "bleep" is used as a print description of an expletive. Hilarious.

Swallow Your Coffee...

...unless you want it coming through your nose. The last sentence of this post is priceless. Read the whole thing first.

Not Ideal

I noticed last year, no matter how many times Redskins D coordinator Gregg Williams blitzed, we could never seem to touch the QB. When the QB has all day to throw, bad things happen. Somehow, through what seemed like smoke and mirrors, the Skins ended 2005 with one of the best defenses in the NFL and a miracle playoff appearance. In the offseason, the pundits praised Gregg Williams to high heaven. I couldn't understand why. The Skins seemed like they were always a step from disaster. Somehow the D always held up, even though they could put no pressure on the QB. How long could this last? Long enough for Williams to get a huge contract, a promotion, and pre-season hype that the Skins could make the Super Bowl.

Then reality struck: the 2006 season started. The defense has been terrible. Not just any old terrible, but putrid, near record breaking terrible. Ugh.

To those I told so before the season, it bears repeating that I told you so.

Sorry for the lack of posting lately. Between trying to buy/sell a house, the holiday season, work and raising a small baby, it's tough to find time or inspiration to post. I'll try to be better about it in the future. For now, posting may be light.
