Ramblin' man

Day three; no Sparky. Don't send out the search team yet, I'll check Spanky's in North Myrtle Beach to make sure he's not there sucking down burgers and beer.

Topic One - The Jints; oh where do we begin? How about with the firing of that beady-eyed nut-job of a head coach? He runs around the sidelines, Nero-like, waving his arms during games while his team commits stupid penalties, fails to capitalize on opportunities and tackles like the French Army fights; which is infrequently and badly!

Topic two - College Football Bowl games. That's enough on that subject.

Topic three - The NFL Network - Robber Barons, Organized Crime and the New York State Legislature have nothing on these guys. Does anyone else think that they are being just a bit piggish by demanding that cable systems place them on their standard package at something like $0.75 a month per subscriber? Wouldn't it make more sense to put the NFL network on the sports tier like the cable guys (no, not Larry and friends) want to do? It's not like the NFL is the most popular sport in the world. Wouldn't they fall after Football (soccer) and auto racing? Let the sports and futbaw junkies pay the equivalent of a pint of Smithwicks a month for all the futbaw games and chatter that they could possibly endure.

Peace; out.
