Crap, I'm so worthless not posting to my blog in so long...I am failing in my blogly duties. My humblest apologizes to all two of you reading this.

Things, as per the usual, are almost too overwhelming. I should be relaxing and enjoying a stress-free Spring Break, but instead I find myself in my normal panic mode, anxious to complete all the homework and projects I have upcoming. Yeeesh.

I saw the Cowboys signed Zach Thomas, which is just an absolutely solid pickup, getting a proven veteran like that on the cheap, and a guy who is still extremely productive and will immediately upgrade their linebacking roster. They got the all-time leading tackle leader among linebackers...yeah, I'm more than okay with that move.

As far as all the speculation of Jerry dealing with Bill Dwayne Tuna Parcells to acquire the pick for McFadden, and trying to sign Randy Moss...well I'll believe it when I see it. Frankly, March will probably tell us a great deal about the Moss situation, because TO Owens will be due a rather sizable signing bonus. I have a feeling the Cowboys are going to pony up for that, and hence, not be willing to sign Moss for some ridiculous contract they can't afford. And considering how Jerry has gotten severely burned in the past on trading away picks...I think he would approach some McFadden inspired pick/player trade situation with extreme trepidation (even though, I have to say I've been rather impressed by what the guy has done at the Combine).

And, last but certainly not least, the little Mavericks recent trade...I have to say, I think Kidd is going to work out pretty well for them. Kidd is definitely still productive, and there is a tangibly different feel to the court with the new starting lineup...I think Dirk is pretty excited that Cuban brought in Kidd after seemingly having a Mavs/Kidd trade rumor the past 3 or 4 seasons. Let's hope it all pans out, and the Mavs can get things in gear for the playoff push, and go in with some momentum this year. I don't think it's a complete stretch to say they have the ability to win an NBA Championship this year, but they certainly aren't the favorites, even in my mind.

And for a random funny...listen closely to Terry at the 50 second mark:

Isn't it fun to be able to laugh a little bit?

Have a happy VD

...I mean a happy Valentine's Day, come on, what did you think I meant?

Boy, talk about sports blue balls, being delivered by Devean George last Everyone was reporting the Kidd deal for the Mavs was essentially done, and then the train absolutely flew off the tracks once George exercised his contract option. I for one don't know quite how to feel about it all. I think short term, it makes the Mavericks a better team, but Devin Harris appeared to be showing more promise this year and I was really looking forward to seeing where that might take the team...which I suppose is technically still on the table for the moment. I have a hunch, though, the front office will find some way to make the Kidd acquisition happen. And then we will really be able to separate the men from the taxpayers...most definitely.

The Greatest Super Bowl Upset Ever...No Question

Well, NFL history was made last night, as in all improbability, Eli managed to take out the Death Star, and proved the he too, may be attuned to the ways of the Force... (too bad Vader, i.e. Belichick, got away in his Tie Fighter before the Death Star blew up). Actually, that was a pretty sorry thing of him to do, running off the field before the final snap. Several athletes in recent years have been harangued by the media for such actions, including the like of Vince Carter and A.I., and I certainly hope there will be articles dedicated to Belichick's egregiously poor display of sportsmanship.

Hell, the Super Bowl loss may be the least of his concerns now, as this information regarding the illegal taping of the Rams walkthrough before Super Bowl XXXVI has surfaced. Frankly, I'm just glad we aren't talking about another P-men Super Bowl victory, and all this perfect season and greatest team ever talk simply vanishes like a fart in the wind.

Wow, Roger Clemens really seems to have done a 180 on his position concerning the use of steroids...
