For some reason, the only thing that comes in to my head is if one of the reporters just asked him,

"Pardon me, do you have any Grey Poupon?"

TE's were nearly extinct at one point too, but they've come charging back.

If the power I comes back . . . .

It sort of makes sense in basketball since they only allow numerals up to 5 so the ref can easily flash hand signals to the scorers when he calls a foul.

Don't think I've ever seen those numbers in any other sport, though.

I was very glad to see that hat too.

It wasn't all that long ago we were all united and NYPD/FDNY hats were everywhere.

Mangold's choice of headgear seemed more like a 'uniting' move than a divisive one.

As long as M. Sanu doesn't have the biggest game of his career tomorrow, I'll be celebrating too.  I'll be in the stadium watching, hoping for a Bengals win, but all the TDs going to AJ Green.

Totally wrong post -- so I'll edit it for the post -- I don't think Urban will let them squander this opportunity

Beat Bama

34 yards & a TD for Marshawn right now- - - you win?

I'm up 3 at present . . . but I'd like to see a nice Wilson to Marshawn screen pass for a TD for lots of extra margin (my opponent has a Bengal going tomorrow)

Good luck.  I hope you win.

I'm actually playing against a really good guy who has a much, much better team than mine.

But I'm still hoping to pull out a win.  I am the plucky team that drafted Adrian Peterson and made a million waiver moves to make up for the lack of a first round pick.

All I know is I need Russell Wilson and Marshawn "Stomach Flu" Lynch to score a heck of a lot of points for me to pull out a victory in my fantasy football super bowl . . .

I'm getting off-topic here, but the mention of UK football fans reminded me of this story. I've got a couple work acquaintances who are Florida Grads.  One was a native Floridian and the other was born somewhere in Asia and didn't really understand the passion of American college sports fans.  I believe it was during the Spurrier regime, when they travelled from CIncy down to UK to watch their Gators dismantle the Wildcats one year.

An angry Wildcat fan turned to my friends and asked, "How much did you guys pay for that football team?"

Without missing a beat, the one guy said, "Oh, about as much as you paid for your basketball team."

My native-Floridian friend barely got them out of there alive.  But they survived and had a funny/scary story to tell.

Honestly, it's Bama.  I admire there tradition and history.

But interestingly enough, I still can't stand Saban and I root for them to lose every week.  But that still makes them my favorite SEC team, since I root for them all to lose each week.

Second place is Ole Miss -- just because of "The Blind Side"

I just heard them talk about Bruce Arians as a coach of the year candidate -- something to the effect if he could win a championship with his third string QB he should be coach of the century.

Not in the B1G my friend . . . not in the B1G.
