I'm officially going through NFL withdrawal. Sundays are now down to just PGA golf and the Simpsons.
Well Mr. Burns had done it. The power plant had won it. With Rogers Clemens clucking all the while. Mike Scioscia's tragic illness made us smile. While Wade Boggs lay unconscious on the barroom tile. We're talkin'... Softball. From Maine to San Diego. Talkin'... Softball. Mattingly and Canseco. Ken Griffey's grotesquely swollen jaw. Steve Sax and his run-in with the law. We're talkin' Homer... Ozzie and the Straw.

You might want to go into a holding pattern on that. The NFL might cancel the season or move it stateside depending on the state of the war when it's go time.
Americans are a resolute people who have risen to every test of our time. Adversity has revealed the character of our country, to the world and to ourselves. America is a strong nation, and honorable in the use of our strength. We exercise power without conquest, and we sacrifice for the liberty of strangers. Americans are a free people, who know that freedom is the right of every person and the future of every nation. The liberty we prize is not America's gift to the world, it is God's gift to humanity. - President George W. Bush, State of the Union Address, 1/28/2003
I'm just thankful that we're closing in on the opening of the Aussie Rules football season. I wish Fox Sports World would show more games per week, instead of the 8000th soccer match. I love soccer, but I don't need to see every Argentinian Juniors match!

NBC clock/scorebox is kind of awkward. Last Sunday they did not give us the Orlando/Tampa game. NBC gave us Dallas for the second week in a row. Looks like I will be watching a lot of Dallas this year since that is my part of the Region I guess.

I miss the days when ESPN showed Aussie Rules. I gotta get a digital hook up to get Fox Sports World here.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- 2002 NFL Champions... feels good, doesn't it?

My Argentinian wife disagrees with you :)
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasure. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship.
The average age of the world's great civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through the following sequence: from bondage to spiritual faith, from spiritual faith to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependency, from dependency back to bondage.
