Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

This weekend plus last night's win by Minnesota the home teams in the NFL were 12-2 straight up and 12-2 against the spread. Just saying... Now I'm hungry for BLT sandwiches. Hmmmm bacon... The funniest Tweet during last night's game came via Bill Simmons, "Salvatore from "Mad Men" puts more pressure on his wife for sex than Green Bay's getting on Favre"... Minnesota now has 118 points scored on the season putting them behind only the New Orleans Saints (144) and surprise the Baltimore Ravens (124) on the season... Separated at birth? Vikings coach Brad Childress and Gavin McLeod in Kelly's Heroes... Quote for the day, "Sir, there is nothing which has yet been contrived by man, by which so much happiness is produced as by a good tavern" - Samuel Johnson... Interesting breakdown on how the Obamas broke the three main rules of selling when trying to pitch Chicago to the IOC... Another solid quote via Bill Simmons, "Has there ever been a uniform number that so perfectly describes a player's performance as JaMarcus Russell's No. 2?"... Interesting rundown on the 2009 Poker Hall of Fame candidates by Dr. Pauly....
