- "Vick" Can't deny I was happy to see Philly sign Vick. They'll only keep him for a year, but they really have nothing lose. The worst that can happen football-wise is that he doesn't contribute at all. Media reaction has been predictably mixed, but the Philly Inquirer's lame rip-off of the RedEye is bogus for this front page. Does PETA sponsor them? I highly doubt if the Phillies got Josh Hamilton, the front page would read "Hide your crack pipes". Or, if Rick Pitino got the Villanova job, they'd put "Hide your vaginas" on the front. I'll be rooting for Vick. Everybody deserves second chances.
- "Madden" Dropped at midnight today and, for the first time since the 7th grade, I wasn't there to get one of the first copies. Selling my XBOX 360 made that decision a lot easier, but I'll admit I missed standing in line with 100 likely celibate, grown men for the game to come out and then playing it until 4 am.
- "History" Usually a load a crap, precisely b/c of instances like this. The famous Ft. Dearborn Massacre is now supposed to be called "The Battle of Ft. Dearborn". Wow. Let me give you the box score of this "battle": 500 Indians (political correctness be damned) killed two-thirds of the Ft. Dearborn settlement, while only losing 10 or so men. Sounds like a massacre to me. No offense white people, I love you, but you can't win 'em all. 1 massacre in 300 years ain't a bad record.
- "C-Murder" Dude just got that life sentence today. For what, you may be asking. Umm, murder. C was convicted of the 2002 shooting of a teenager at a nightclub - video here. When keeping it real goes wrong?
- "Eli Porter"
Just because. Skip to 1:55.
