Not much of true interest, as far as I’m concerned, until this evening. But watching the Washington-St. Louis game, at the start of the 4th quarter, I must say I appreciate the Redskins allowing the game to stay so close, because it is more interesting that way.
UPDATE: 12:00 left in the 4th. After recovering a crucial turnover, the ‘Skins quickly stink up the joint and end up punting from their end zone. It is going to be up to the defense as so often in the past.
UPDATE II: ‘Skins pulled it off, not exactly in impressive fashion especially on the offensive side of the ball – but a win is a win.
UPDATE III: Anyone see the Dallas-New York opening? Pretty impressive visual extravaganza, akin to an olympics.
UPDATE IV: After seeing President GW Bush and John Madden sitting together at the game, tell me this: Don’t you feel better about Bush now, than you did 6 months ago?
UPDATE V: The Cowboys are looking bad. Really bad. Badly coached. Does this ring a bell? Yes, like the past 15 years of Dallas Cowboys history.
UPDATE VI: At 1:20 left in the 2nd quarter, the overall game seems close, but the Giants are making the big plays off Tony Romo’s mistakes. 20-14 NY
UPDATE VII: But the Boys bring it back to 20-17 at the end of the half. Cool. Now we have to listen to the NBC moron Olbermann.
UPDATE VIII: Dallas takes the lead 24-20 with three minutes left in the 3rd. If they can overcome their many mistakes to pull this game out it will be a huge morale victory going forward. In any case, they have shown they can play with the NFCs best. In September. That’s our challenge.
UPDATE IX: The Gints are looking good – well, not exactly good, but better than us for sure. 27-24 with 12 minutes to play. They make the plays we can’t make.
UPDATE X: 3:40 left, Cowboys ahead 31-30. Up to the defense.
UPDATE XI: Giants win. Well, I’d rather have the Cowboys lose in September, and perhaps build more character for December, because that is when they have had the problems. They have been the kings of September for several years now.
