I posted last week that Peyton Manning no longer needed to throw for 400 yards to win a Super Bowl. And I still believe I'm right.

The Patriots held him to 349 yesterday, and look what happened.

Early prediction: Take the Bears and the points (+7). Not to win outright, but to cover.

I hope that wasn't too wishy-washy for some of you.

I expect the Orioles to announce their FanFest date later this week. It won't be at the Baltimore Convention Center, of course, and it won't be as early as first anticipated. But it'll happen before Opening Day.

Speaking of the Convention Center, if you go there Jan. 26-28, bring a piece of paper and a pen.

MAB Celebrity Services and Ironclad Authentics LLC are presenting a sports collectible and memorabilia show in honor of Baseball's Best and will include players from the 1983 Orioles world championship team, Orioles who had their number retired and several members of the Hall of Fame, along with various other greats from the present and past.
Don't take my word for it. Visit www.baseballsbest2007.com.
Thanks to all of you for passing along names of players who took a year or two off - and in some cases, many more - before resuming their careers.
Brian Roberts won't be getting Chase Utley money from the Orioles.
Chase Utley shouldn't have gotten Chase Utley money.
Roberts' agent, Mark Pieper, doesn't believe in negotiating in the newspapers. He won't be saying much.
