i’m still coughing a lot and i don’t much like that… and i’m not sure about everything that i was going to write about… and i don’t have all that much time left (about half an episode of The Office before it’s bedtime), but i certainly wanted to get something written up here since i’ve neglected it so much… i’d like to apologize in advance for all the typos that i’m sure will be here… the j and p keys tend to be a little sticky at the moment… it tried some nice canned air, but sometimes it ends up slipping by anyway… anyway… off we go…

DOWN, SET…
to the tune of Heavy Action (MNF Theme) – Johnny Pearson

well, i only got to watch four games this week as opposed to seven the first week, but it was still a pretty good week and i actually split my leagues, making me 0-2 and 1-1… have no fear though folks… i will prevail…

as far as picks… let’s see if i beat week one’s record of 10-6… The Ravens and the Texans both ended up getting an unexpected bye week, so that’s one wrench in the mix… and, after starting out 6-2, i bombed on the late games and wound up at just 8-7… UNACCEPTABLE… must… do… better… this… week… here we go… winners below…

Falcons, Bills, Bucs, Vikings
Pats, Giants, Titans, Cards
Saints, Lions, Hawks, Browns
Colts, Eagles, Cowboys, Chargers

that should work out better assuming that i looked at the right week’s schedule…

THE READING ROOM
to the tune of This Is Who I Am – Third Day

technically, the summer doesn’t end until Monday, so i’m still in the game for a little while longer… these current books are taking a while, but they’re both worth it…

Well, time’s up… i think that something is biting my toe (probably an ant or something), but before i go… check out the fancy schmancy interview with Matt Brouwer over on the front page… more later…
