Are you ready for some football?
It's that time of year again... the smell of pigskin, stale beer and buffalo wings wafting through watering holes from coast to coast is drawing ever closer with the curtains being raised on NFL's training camps. As a diehard, long suffering New York Jets fan, I'm still smarting from the gutwrenching sting of last season's abrupt end at the hands of the Steelers. But with negotiations closing in to land Ty Law (yes!), the clueless Paul Hackett hitting the bricks long ago, our running game solidified with returning rushing champ (and my fiancé-to-be, he just doesn't know it yet) Curtis Martin and Derrick Blaylock, a formidable defensive line helmed by John Abraham, Shaun Ellis and last year's rookie sensation, Jonathan Vilma and Chad Pennington's surgically repaired rotator cuff reportedly feeling better already, my hopes are high that we can do some damage and challenge the Patsy's dominance in the AFC East. Go Gang Green!!!
U-G-L-Y, you ain't got no alibi: Washington Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs kicks the preseason trash talking up a notch with a playground potshot at Cowboys fans in declaring Dallas people "the ugliest in the world." While he may have a point there, I guess he's never taken a good look around Lambeau Field yet. Cheeseheads aren't known for being lookers much. Then again neither are the knuckledraggin' cavemen at Heinz Field.
However, if we're going on sheer behavior alone — congratulations, Eagles fans. Only you can turn Santa Claus into public enemy no. 1. Yeah, I SAID IT!
Nothing warms my heart more than seeing Jeremy Shockey getting his wig pushed back. Note to the Giants: quit rifling through the Allan Iverson playbook of excuses..."it's just practice..." Wah, wah, wah...get your weight up, punks!

About a decade ago I would've agreed. :oD
