So if the Ravens win one more game, are they bowl-eligible?

Too bad their defensive ranking will suffer, at least a little, because of the garbage-time yardage they surrendered. Drew Brees threw for 383 yards, but he didn't exactly light 'em up.


Reggie Bush fumbles, throws an interception and leaves the game with an injury.

Later, he'll under-tip a waitress.


We now know who's calling the plays. Jamal Lewis.

It's also good to know that the Ravens' defense is just as adept at the tip drills as their offense. Next week, the long-snapper will bat the ball to punter Sam Koch.

I went 4-4 picking against the spread in the early games. I had a shot at 5-3, but Tampa Bay didn't get into the end zone on its last possession after having a first down on the Giants' 21.

Can someone please tell me what's wrong with the Eagles?

Representatives from the Gator Bowl attended last night's Maryland-Florida State game. Representatives from the Meineke Car Care Bowl and the Champ Sports Bowl also attended.

Try to contain your excitement.

What exactly are the Meineke Car Care and Champ Sports bowls? And why wasn't anyone from the T.G.I. Friday's Bowl also present?

The winning team doesn't get a trophy, but it does receive an order of loaded potato skins to go.


Worst opening paragraph I've seen in a wire story in quite some time:

"Former heavyweight champion Trevor Berbick was found dead yesterday in a church courtyard in Kingston, Jamaica, with chop wounds to his head in a suspected homicide."

A suspected homicide? Are they sure it wasn't just a sloppy suicide attempt?

Berbick was the last guy to fight Muhammad Ali. I'm sure lots of people assumed it was Larry Holmes, but somehow, Ali was allowed to fight again after that debacle. And people actually paid to watch.
