It’s unseasonably cold in Portland. Perfect weather to sit and watch Seattle and Chicago battle it out. The Bears currently have the lead at Soldier but Grossman just forgot to protect the rock. Is anyone else annoyed as I am by American Idol commercials? Audio mute does only part of the job. I need a video blur button. I do like the part in the Mastercard commercial where Bobby steams himself in the face while making Peyton’s latte. Anywhay, here are a few links I have been reading to pass the time during the multitude of commercials.
Alan Schwarz verifies that moving from the AL to AAAA ball is typically good for a pitcher’s ERAs, moving the other way, typically bad.
Mike Lupica says Roger Clemens shouldn’t be surprised that he’s part of and will stay part of the steroids conversation.
Meanwhile, Pete Abraham has posted a timeline of Klemens’ return.
Okay. Not a pretty game. Grossman’s numbers look decent but he made some horrible decisions. Fortunately for Chicago, Hasselback threw one of the most ridiculous interceptions I’ve ever seen in a long time.
Pats and Bolts just started. If you feel like talking about the game or anything else on this lazy Sunday, have at it.
