Big game out west tonight, Giants/Pats. Stupit Bowl. Tom Petty at the half. Em and I will be watching. Made ribs in the oven this afternoon. I'm not a Giants fan but I'll have no trouble rooting for them tonight. I like Eli. Tom Brady and Randy Moss are great players, and I've never hated the Patriots they way I hate the Red Sox (never hated the Celtics either). Their coach is overbeaing but what can you say? Can't have it all. I'm not wild about the Giants coach either. Hopefully, it's a game mid-way through the fourth quarter. Would be a major upset if the Gints pull out the win. I suspect a decisive victory for New England, but one never knows...

Why is it that when the Pats are successful, the coach and the quarterback get all the hype? Has it been the two of them playing keep-away against the NFL, with Randy Moss running interference? I love how Wild Bill's such a mastermind that all the players except Brady are mere expendibles in a system that is otherwise a turn-key operation. Priceless...

Mmmm... we found a recipe for a tremendous dry-rub courtesy of Alton Brown and the Food Network. Altho' one should always bear in mind that measurements for kosher salt is NOT the same as for table top salt.W e tried to make ribs in the oven last night and the saltiness rendered our efforts inedible. But previous efforts were always superior.

Unlike the "wardrobe malfunction" game where I was suffering through food poisoning, tonight I'm recovering from the nasty bug that's been going around. Still don't want to eat (or drink) much.

Go Giants!

4 He has been compared to Jeter and Jeter hasn't won a championship in quite some time. Hopefully that will change this year.

Of course, this has more to do with the rest of the team/competition/luck than Jeter or Brady.

Belichick is much more than overbearing:

Two seasons ago, a Pats player went down near Pittsburgh's sideline. John Norwig, the universally liked and respected Steelers head trainer, jumped into action to help the injured Patriot. A few seconds later, Belichick crosses the field and barks at Norwig: "Get the fuck away from my player."

Also google: former Pats LB Ted Johnson and his post-concussion stories in the Bos. Globe re: Belichick.

Much, much more than simply overbearing.
