About last night, dear

OK, let's all hold hands and sing.

The sun'll come out
Tomorrow
Bet your bottom dollar
That tomorrow
There'll be sun!

So what's there to be said? I look at that last play of Baltimore's semi-historic 22-16 overtime loss to previously winless Miami and who was involved -- Dolphins quarterback Cleo Lemon throwing to wide receiver Greg Camarillo with Ravens defensive back Jamaine Winborne covering. Running around on defense for the Ravens for much of the game were the likes of Willie Gaston and Nick Greisen. These are the guys you'd expect to find in the second half of a preseason game. So you could say that's a mitigating factor in the significance of the outcome, but no one really cares about such distinctions. The Ravens lost to an 0-13 team and had enough front-liners playing for long enough.

Complain about Ravens coach Brian Billick not going for the win with 12 seconds left in regulation and the ball at the Dolphins' one. Complain about not throwing on third down on what proved to be Baltimore's final offensive snap -- it was third-and-12 at the Miami 27-yard line and Musa Smith gained one yard on the eighth rushing attempt of a nine-play drive.

There were just too many other things, fundamental things, that were a major concern -- among them, the offensive line. Starting QB Kyle Boller was pummeled into submission and sent to the sideline with a concussion. And although the Ravens gained 163 yards on the ground, when they needed to get into range for an easier field goal from the Miami 25-yard line in overtime, they got minus-one yard on three straight rushing attempts.

All right, let's try this again.

Tomorrow! Tomorrow!
I love ya Tomorrow!
You're always
A day
A waaay.
