We're going to need sandbags for the impending floods. Lots and lots of sandbags.

Man, he's got the Celtics part all wrong ... Sure, they've got an average record thus far (if it weren't for some fourth-quarter collapses, the team could easily be 17-3 at this point - I'm serious) to justify a "C", but where's he come up with this stuff:

Ricky Davis is having a phenomenal season thus far (note his 34-point effort against the Clips last night) with no outbursts, while Blount - aside from one or two good outings - has yet to justify that big contract he signed over the summer.

But hey, that's what happens when a national sportwriter tries to "grade" every single team as if he's been following each one from the beginning of the season; it's just not possible, so you get lazy and "guess".

Kawshen - you post lots of links here with some interesting articles, but I almost never see you comment on them. Most generally, it's here's a list or here's a link with no additional comment. Is there something about this list of grades that made you go "hmmmmmm?" Give me a hook as to why you think it's worth us reading. Thanks!

I think Shaq has it in his head that he wants to be the Sheriff of some small town after his playing days are over, but there's no reason he can't jaunt to Atlanta once a week and trade barbs with Charles at the same time.
