Mighty Morphin' Storyline

Dan is the news reporting guy today. In the game story, Dan switches from 'Schilling is fat' to 'Schilling was fat and is upset the Red Sox did not extend his contract.' A seamless transition of storylines by Dan.

In the Notes, Dan has the rest of the game story. In what I hope is not a sign of things to come, Dan brings up Alex Gonzalez's name after Julio Lugo commits an error. It will be much easier to note Lugo's errors than the times he got on base when Gonzalez would have hit a weak grounder to the left side of the infield, thus distorting any simple Lugo-Gonzalez observations.

Dan refuses to let go of the Manny Car Show talk as Dan dedicates the second 'note' to the topic. It's over, Dan. It wasn't much of a story to begin with, and it is no longer a story after Manny reported. Move on.

As an aside, has anyone noticed how much more visible the Globe sports fossils are on TV these days? Recall when these guys would, in a sniff and a huff, refuse to come on the radio and TV. Beneath them, they said. "They need us more than we need them,' the elite Ryan & Shaughnessy huffed.

Well, now that the Globe is going the way of the Edsel and the Tyrannosaurus Rex, here they are...feathers all primped & preened...going wherever they can weasel an invite. Obvious, and funny.

I am going to try to incorporate some of Dan's media appearances into the blog.

With the trades and acquisitions made going into the draft, plus the bulk of the team that is carried over from last season, and the trades and draft picks made during the draft, it sure seems like the Pats are going to be the team to beat in the AFC this season, and perhaps in all of the NFL.

Considering the Pats were almost in the Superbowl last season with a pathetic receiving corps and that they've added very talented players into said receiving corps this season, barring some nasty injury(ies), they look to be the team to take it all.I say injury(ies) because I think they could survive an injury or two to some positions, but if they lost Brady they'd probably have a hard time recovering.

I wish I could say that the Redskins did well in the draft and/or in free agency but so many holes still exist that I'm not sure they'll be significantly better than last season. I suppose on face they should be if they can keep their corners healthy. With Landry (argh, hard to type that name as a Redskin!!) back there with a healthy secondary they might be able to cheat up more and put more pressure on opposing QBs. Might.

They still have what should be a lot of talent in the receiving positions, and Campbell should be better, but they don't have the quality on either line (offense or defense) that I wish they'd have, so it could be yet another year of .500 at best, or worse.

Still, the NFC East looks to be the NFC Least again this season. None of the teams there look like they'll be that good, and none really look ready to step up and take the division.
