Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers are all on pace to break Dam Marino's record for passing in a season. I wonder if there has ever been 3 NFL QB's with more than 2,000 yards passing after just 6 games... Cool - three years worth of views from the Mars Rover... Interesting things are happening in Red Sox Nation but I don't know what to think until Doris Kearns Goodwin lets us know how this fits in the historical scheme of things and relates it to a childhood tale of her watching the Sox with her dad... Ball-camera that you toss in the air for a 360 degree panorama - I really want one... If I was artistic I would do a fake Ken Burns take on the Red Sox situation. I think that would be really funny in a Conan O'Brian old-timey baseball kind of way... I feel genuinely bad for people who ended up with Donovan McNabb on their fantasy football teams because of autodraft... Very cool chart if you want to get drunk not fat... Funny that you don't hear President Obama talking about "Winning the Future" anymore. That message should be in the Bad Idea Jeans hall of fame... The things you learn via the Internet (via Mental Floss), "The 1975 Dictionary of American Slang defines 'happy cabbage' as money to be spent 'on entertainment or other self-satisfying things." Happy Cabbage would be a great name for a band or a fantasy football team.
