Little Bits Of Stuff
Gosh, it's been so long since I had a little catch-all list that I thought it was high time for another one. Herewith, a bunch of small items.
- The Rams won their game against the Seahawks. Given that the Rams beat Seattle twice this season, it's not exactly a surprise, and here in Wisconsin, we're happy to see Mike Holmgren lose. Unfortunately, since their wins this season came against either weak teams or teams that were resting their starters for the playoffs, the Rams aren't going to go any farther.
- Happy birthday, Elvis, wherever you are. Seventy years young. (For anyone who was wondering, Peter Guralnick's two-volume biography of Elvis is totally worth reading, but also very, very depressing. Tom Parker can rot in hell.)
- Speaking of football, I'm hoping for a good game between the Packers and the Vikings tomorrow. The Vikings are gonna be pissed at dribbling away their season the way they did, and they're going to want some revenge for having the division title taken away. But the Vikings are slumping and the Packers are hot. If the Packers win, they play Atlanta next week and the Rams go to Philadelphia. If the Vikings win, they play the Eagles and the Rams go to Atlanta. Either way...it's Atlanta vs. Philadelphia for the NFC Championship.
