Wisconsin Badgers don't care about...spreads!

Wisconsin Badgers
Let me start out by saying I love Saturdays during the fall. And not because of the sweet smell of pumpkin pies or cheese platters at wineries, nor the sights of couples holding hands as they throw back their scarfs in the brisk chilly weather. Nope, it's because I get to sit in my my house, barely clothed, while shaking off last nights poor decisions. With the tv showing all scores of the day for college football and as I lay there, eating 3 day old wings....ah, fall Saturdays.

Well, instead of enjoying the scores as they come up....I was 4 games up on a 5 game tease. The one left is the new look Michigan Wolverines versus the vaunted Wisconsin Badgers. All I needed at this point is for Badgers to win by a half a point....let me repeat myself...A HALF OF ONE SINGLE POINT!!!

As I checked the score at half time, I'm up by 19. So one would think, well lets continue running the ball and let that clock tick. So, in this case one doesn't get his legs broken by uninvited guests.

So, later on I turned back to secure my teased games and what do I see...the Badgers, who really isn't that intimidating of an animal, cannot even get first downs, or run the ball efficiently. Forget about throwing the ball, the mongoloid who lives next door who's been watching the smurfs all day, could throw better then any QB who's come out of the Badger nation.

Needless to say, I was headed for a great afternoon, possible blowing my winnings on craigslist hookers, Doritos and yo-yo's. But nope, the Wisconsin Badgers had to ruin it by being not good!!!

Here's to you Troy Brown

So Troy Brown has retired, I for one am happy that he ended his career as a Patriot. He has done so much in a Patriots uniform and i look forward to when he is inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame.

REMEMBER WHEN: He lateraled to Antwaan Harris, who ran it in for the score that put the Patriots up, 21-3.

REMEMBER WHEN: In the AFC Championship game against the Steelers in January 2002, Brown's 55-yard punt return put the Patriots on the board
scoop and score
REMEMBER WHEN: In 2000, Brown earned a role as a starting wideout for the first time in his career. He started 15 games, hauling in 83 passes for 944 yards and 4 TDs and was still a threat in the return game

REMEMBER WHEN: Brown was the Patriots' leading receiver in Super Bowl XXXVI, catching 6 passes for 89 yards in addition to setting up Adam Vinatieri's winning field goal with this reception of a Tom Brady pass in the fourth quarter.

REMEMBER WHEN: The 33-year-old Brown's role changed in the 2004 season. With Ty Law and Tyrone Poole out for the year, and Eugene Wilson (right) battling injuries, the New England secondary was in disarray. So, Brown became a valued defensive back.

"I would give anything in the world to be able to put those pads on again and do it and I probably had the opportunity to do it, but it just wasn't the right color. I didn't think I could be in green and white."

Tatum Bell are you serious?

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Detroit Lions running back Rudi Johnson says his luggage was taken from the team's practice facility by Tatum Bell.

Johnson was waived by Cincinnati, met with Lions president Matt Millen on Monday and signed a free-agent contact. During the meeting, his two duffel bags were taken from the team's headquarters.

Johnson said Wednesday he was shown surveillance footage Tuesday afternoon that captured the theft.

A message seeking comment was left Wednesday with Bell's agent, Kennard McGuire. Johnson replaced Bell on Detroit's 53-man roster.

The empty bags were returned Tuesday evening, but Johnson said he is still missing $200, his ID, credit cards and clothes. Johnson said he had spoken with Bell and did not plan to involve the police.

Hoping for a big year out of Ben Watson

Ben Watson I for one am hoping for a big year out of Ben Watson. Last year he had 36 receptions for 389 yards. That is not enough and though he only played 12 games that is also an issue. We need more. His 6 touchdowns were not bad but a guy with his speed and strength should provide much more for the patriots.

One would have to think with the receiver corps being a little thinner this year with out Stallworth that we will need more from Watson. I don't understand why he isn't more wide open when the defense has to worry about Moss and Welker?

Do You? Anyone?
