Monday Sports Extravaganza

Hi. Tonight Rock Club is going to the Black Cat to see Patrick Wolf. Here's a picture of young Patrick:


To counter the inevitable accusations that we're all gay, here is a sports-related post that will butch things up around here.

  • Football: Rock Club is sitting pretty. Jumbo Slice's Buffalo Bills vaulted up to second place in the AFC East by dropping JP Losman for Trent Edwards, the former electrician who's lighting up the NFL. Potsy's universally-despised Pats are 4-0 and have solidified a data-sharing agreement with the NSA which will guarantee them a 16-0 season. And me? The Raiders are in sole possession of first place in the AFC West, along with two other teams. Before my son was born I bought him a Raiders onesie. The sizing was for 3-6 month olds but the little biscuit has been growing so fast I put it on him last week. The result? The Raiders are 2-0 when he wears the onesie. And guess what else? The onesie should still fit him on Feb. 8, 2008.

  • Football (the other one): Clint Dempsey broke John Terry's cheekbone on Saturday. Well done, Deuce.
  • Baseball: the Mets collapsed. Amusing. There are two other notoriously choke-lovin' teams in the playoffs--the Cubs and the Phillies. I expect to see some good weeping fan television shots.
One more thing about the Bills--here's a very, very, very funny video about Kevin Everett. If you recall, Everett's a tight end for the Bills who broke his neck and was partially paralyzed during the Bills' first game of the season a few weeks ago. Apparently he's improving.

Seriously, watch it. I laughed heartily and out loud for at least 20 seconds:

I am trying to contain myself after seeing that video. F * C K all! That is funny! It almost seems too coincidental, but I don't care. I'm gonna laugh at that one for a long time.

Nice post. Good luck at the show tonight. I, for one, will not be there. So I'm sure you'll all enjoy yourselves...

Good to see your child has already learned to shake his fist at you when you make him wear crap like that. Bodes well for his future I say...
