nfl : the worst possible news…

From “Surgeon: Everett has life-threatening spinal-cord injury” : Kevin Everett sustained a “catastrophic” and life-threatening spinal-cord injury while trying to make a tackle during the Buffalo Bills’ season opener and is unlikely to walk again, the surgeon who operated on him said Monday. “A best-case scenario is full recovery, but not likely,” orthopedic surgeon Andrew…


my TIME POY, 2006, volume 2 of 3

Watch this video, and tell me why Boise State’s Chris Petersen shouldn’t be (my) TIME POY 2006. This is one of those videos that will make the hair on your hands and neck rise. Fine,technically, they made their mark in 2007 since they played the Fiesta Bowl in ’07. But kudos to Petersen and gang for…

And, in the news today…

I open up start.com and I see two Purdue-related articles in my feeds. Completely unrelated however : Here’re the two articles : Purdue Streams a Movie At 7.5Gb/sec Two Purdue players arrested, won’t play at Hawaii Go Boilers! “ai” Technorati tags: purdue, purdue football, bandwidth challenge

Sleepless in Ann Arbor? In Columbus?

Early this year, the USC Texas game was touted as the biggestest game ever. It made sense  – they were the two best teams at the time. That was the National Championship Game. The National Championship. This time round, the biggestest game of the year is going to be just another Big Ten game. I’ve…

my new favorite show – FNL

“Friday Night Lights”. Love the show. The drama’s gripping. The cinematography is awesome. The story is way too predictable in a lot of ways, like the starting QB, who gets knocked out of the game and gets hospitalized in the first episode, and his cheerleader girlfriend who’s stunningly gorgeous hooks up with his BFF, right, who is also…

Wow – goodbye coach Walker

I was shocked to read the news today that Coach Randy Walker from Northwestern U had passed away. I can confidently say that I’ve seen this man (re)build the Northwestern Football program. He was a great leader with great principles. ai

Great start to a week…

This is just bogus – how could any team let Drew Brees go? What is wrong with the Chargers? I’ve finally come around to liking them and Schottenheimer, and now they let Brees test the free agency waters. I like Philip Rivers, I think he’s a fantastic quarterback, and will do really well. He has…


No more shattered dreams – keep the faith boilers, keep the faith…

I’m just devastated by this loss… I mean, I couldn’t be at a lower point in my life. I haven’t slept since. I daydream about us stopping the 2 point conversion, or the kickoff not going out-of-bounds (which in my opinion were the 2 BIGGEST plays of the game). BUT, I want to pump up and…

In KO, the Bears trust

I read in the news today that Kyle Orton has been slated as the Bears’ new starting QB. While I am tremendously happy for KO, the Bears and all other KO fans in the world, I’m also a wee-bit scared. KO’s got tremendous potential, and with the right coaches and direction, can be a serious superstar….
