Daryl Johnston must be on crack. Or Frank Gifford possessed his body.

One observation from watching the Pro Bowl: Daryl Johnston of Fox Sports, who noted that Osi Umenyiora was the Giants' only Pro Bowl rep, and "that just speaks to their great chemistry." As Kyle's mom on South Park would say, "Wha-wha-whaaa?"

Sports Illustrated: Super Bowl 42 Champion Patriots

Too much confidence? This morning's article by Dan Shaughnessy on New England's Super Bowl loss had an ad for Sports Illustrated, with the annual freebie enticement to subscribe: Super Bowl DVD, T-Shirt, and football. Unfortunately, they all had Patriots logos.

Well, some kids in Nigeria or Uganda will wind up with the T-shirts.

(Not) Patriots' Day

Congrats to the Giants, who stunned the Patriots 17-14 in Super Bowl 42. I knew there was trouble when it was only 7-3 Pats at the half. If the Pats had been wearing white jerseys, it would have looked worse: Tom Brady might have resembled a Seattle Seahawk from the late 70's, with blue and green mixed all over. Blue, for the Giant defenders who constantly got past the Pats' O-Line, and Green, for all the grass stains Brady got from hitting the turf over and over again.

Kudos to Blogger, which suggested "Goestenkors" when I typed the letter "g" in labels. Coach G has guided #25 UT to a 15-7 mark this year. Her former team, #9 Duke, is 16-5.
