NFL Round 1 Day 2

The nice thing about yesterday’s wins by the Cardinals and the Chargers is that it should shut up TMQ and all the other lunatics who were crying about the fact that two 8-8 division champions made it to the playoffs. Arizona and San Diego are now 9-8 and have conclusively proved that they merited their place. The NFL isn’t broken, so people who claim to be fans should stop trying to fix it.

I’d rather go the other direction and get rid of the wild card teams altogether. If you want to win a championship, then you can start by winning your division.

At the Black Gate V

I’m not all that prone to fandom, so perhaps you’ll understand my extreme enthusiasm at hearing the mere possibility that one of my longtime heroes appears to be showing some signs of returning to the area of his greatest achievement. While I respect those who are boldly going forth into the final frontier and all, it’s a tragedy to waste the greatest game designer to have ever worn a cape and crown when there’s six billion other spam available for the can.
