A few things for a Sunday night before the work week starts...
  • Nice win by the Pats today. The capper was the 9-minute-plus drive that took up most of the 4th quarter and sealed the 20-10 victory. Just a beautiful job of controlling the ball (the Pats total time of posession was over 37 minutes). It sets up a first place showdown with the Jets (who crushed St. Louis 47-3 today) in Foxborough on Thursday night.
  • Be honest. As stress-free as it is when the Patriots cruise on in to win the division every year, isn't it a bit more interesting when things are close? The Pats and Jets are tied at 6-3, while the Dolphins and Bills are in hot pursuit at 5-4. It's good, as long as New England ends up winning, of course.
  • Best sports nickname I have heard in a long time: Patriots rookie running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis, also known as "Law Firm".
  • The Red Sox announced that at least some of the wooden torture devices installed at Fenway Park, otherwise known as "grandstand seats" are going to be refurbished and widened to the league mandated minimum of at least 18 inches. Henry, Lucchino and Warner, my butt thanks you.
  • People have been lamenting the fact that the Sox let Orlando Cabrera get away after the 2004 season for years, but take this into consideration. The Sox got two draft picks as compensation for the Angels signing him. Those picks turned into Jacoby Ellsbury and Jed Lowrie. Long run, this may not have been the worst thing that could have happened.
  • I'm finally catching up on all the stuff on my DVR that I ignored during the playoffs. Only one episode of "Heroes", one "The Office" two "Smallville"s and two "Boston Legal"s left to go.
  • Oh, and five episodes of "Clone Wars". J. and I need to make some time to catch up on that.
