Super Bowl Aftermath: Words vs. Sleep? No Contest

February 3, 2015

Random thoughts (as close to them as we generally come around here) while wondering why an NFL owner would wear a tie to watch — from a suite — his team play: * If there’s a bright side to recovering from a mystery malady that had your humble correspondent sleeping most of Monday away, it’s […]

Super Day Spent in Far From Super Way

February 2, 2015

Monday meanderings: Brevity being the soul of wit, today’s effort figures to be one of the wittiest this site has seen (and, yes, the bar has not been set high in that regard). Not that Super Bowl XLIX failed to provide fodder for discussion. The New England Patriots’ 28-24 victory over the defending champion Seattle […]

Forecast: Super Bowl Mixed With Superfluous Snow

February 1, 2015

Sunday smorgasbord: As today’s effort is being crafted ever so carefully typed, it is snowing. Well, depending where you happen to be. Around here and other parts of the United States, it is snowing. Or has snowed recently. Or will snow. That pretty much covers it, all in a nice, white blanket. Unless you were […]

Patriots’ Activity Apparently Took a Lot of Balls

January 21, 2015

Midweek musings: To those who contended that any allegation of the New England Patriots’ underinflating the footballs in Sunday’s AFC championship game was a lot of hot air, take a deep breath. The NFL reportedly has determined that was not the case. Nor was it it a lot of cold air. Seems that the Pats […]

Packers’ Loss Fails to Make Bears Any Better

January 19, 2015

Monday meanderings: The Green Bay Packers’ season ended ingloriously Sunday in the NFC championship game. And so Chicago Bears fans can take some sense of satisfaction at seeing their biggest rival suffer a devastating defeat 28-22 in overtime against the host Seattle Seahawks. Well, some sense of satisfaction until the aforementioned fans realize that chances […]

Packers Benefit From Good Call on Bad Rule

January 12, 2015

Monday meanderings: And now a word on behalf of the NFL rule that prevented Dallas receiver Dez Bryant from being credited with a fourth-quarter reception in the Cowboys’ NFC semifinals defeat Sunday at Green Bay: Boooooooooooo! * Not that overturning the initial call of a catch was wrong. It’s a bad rule. Oh, and any […]

It’s Trestman-Cutler vs. Lovie-McCown

November 23, 2014

Sunday smorgasbord: Deal or no deal? If you’re a Chicago Bears fan, would you trade current coach Marc Trestman for his predecessor Lovie Smith? And saying you want neither is not an option. Feel free to wait until after Sunday’s Bears-Tampa Bay Buccaneers game, if you like. * Inquiring minds also want to know: If […]

Bears Rally for Victory, Spoil 49ers’ Stadium Debut

September 15, 2014

Monday meanderings: For about three quarters of the Chicago Bears-San Francisco 49ers game, it appeared the highlight for Sunday — at least for some of us — was going to be having mowed the front yard. Or putting in some solar-powered lights along the front steps. Yes, it was that incredible a day in the […]

Upon Further Review, Ravens’ Rice Released

September 9, 2014

The Baltimore Ravens released running back Ray Rice on Monday. The National Football League suspended him indefinitely. Better late than never? Well, presumably so because the league already had suspended him two games for domestic violence — a punishment considered fairly light in light of the fact that the NFL suspends players for lesser crimes […]

Seahawks Score Early, Often in Super Bowl Victory

February 3, 2014

Monday meanderings: OK, so the highlight of Super Bowl XLVIII was Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers performing at halftime. Or Queen Latifah singing “America the Beautiful” or Renee Fleming singing the national anthem. Unless you were a Seattle Seahawks fan. In which case the 43-8 victory against the Denver Broncos just might […]
