AFC North Headline Of The Day...

The Detroit Lions and the Cincinnati Bengals should merge. Because maybe collectively, they can make the worlds hardest conscious effort to suck. Are you listening, Guinness Book people?

I mean, what? You want to KEEP Daunte Culpepper, presumably as your starting QB? WHY? I'm sure there are at least two or three sensible options out there that are not as old or as immobile. Maybe even four.

But you'd rather stick with Daunte Culpepper.

Well, what did I expect from a team that doesn't believe in playing Defense?

Headline number two today...

Oh yeah? That's interesting. Perhaps not, BUD, but instead of dicking around with blame, why don't you figure out how to move the game forward? You know, restore it to some semblance of prestige.

After this whole PED thing, a salary cap might not be a bad place to start. It won't do anything for the steroid problem, but it'll sure make me happy to see the Yankees and their fans cry like this fruitcup when they can't make the playoffs every season...

Yeah, no, you're right, MLB. Who needs parity?

What an unfortunate sitch.

I may not be able to clean up Selig's mess, but luckily these links are squeaky clean...

Lions are terrible, they need to draft line, so no QB this year at least. They pretty much need a whole team other than a WR1.

The Bengals are terrible, Browns as well. Ravens might be in a state of flux this year. Hope the Steelers can get a decent line.
It would be great to get Mack, but we really need Tackles. Also, it seems like Kemo's agent is on crack b/c he said he's one of the best in the league. The only way I believe that is if it was followed with at taking penalties. I'm bitter today, don't want to be working.

oh yeah, baseball. i've decided to officially give up on the Pirates and join evil forces by cheering for the Yankees. this decision is against everything i stand for but MLB is like watching paint dry.

This steroids drama is weak.

Go Pens.

Dude, seriously. What about Jon Kitna? I mean, like Kurt Warner, he's got a friend in Jesus. So, what gives?
