- Ten more days until Texas football (and 8 until NCAA football) begins. We like our chances against Arkansas State, and the real question is: where can we watch it? Much like preseason NFL football, we're just hoping for no injuries.
- A really fantastic article on Michael Vick from The Times-Picayune's John DeShazier, closing with:
"There is much to be angry with Vick for, much to be disappointed in.
But Monday, a feeling of sadness prevailed.
You hate to see a man commit the kind of turnover Vick has committed, mourn to think of him tossing away a career that was so promising and, potentially, forever staining his life by making himself almost untouchable."
- The Cardinals heard our whining and delivered last night, albeit with 4 unearned runs to complete a comeback 5-2 win over the Marlins. Hanley Ramirez's error that allowed the damage--a throw over the first baseman's head that can only be described as lazy in the extreme--served as a great lesson for youngsters playing infield: the man's not out until he's out. Ramirez cost his team the ballgame by lobbing the ball to first instead of setting himself and making a good throw. Shameful.
- Finally, The Times-Picayune published a cool piece on Adam Kraus who one of us grew up with. It's worth a read.
This many more days 'til Longhorn Football!
