Here's where I've been.....

I've been hard at work on a new blog dedicated to our radio coverage of Patrick Henry Football on WHAN-AM in Ashland. The blog is actually much more than just about PH football. Check it out by clicking the title above!

Tom Brady didn't die, he's just hurt!

Good Lord, you'd think they were gonna shut down the NFL for the season and award the Lombardi Trophy for Super Bowl 43 to the New England Patriots because the whole world is in mourning over Tom Brady's knee injury.

Headline I saw this morning:

"Will Tom Brady's injury mean to football what Tiger's injury means to golf?"

ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Golf is almost irrelevant to pop culture without Tiger.

NFL without Tom Brady? No offense, but, it'll be just fine. I've never once turned on the TV to watch a football game because "I wanna watch Tom Brady".

Had I felt that way as a kid, in 1980, after Dan Pastorini got hurt, I would have been like, "Well, I won't turn on the Raider games with Jim Plunkett at quarterback, I tune in for Dan Pastorini!!"

And I would have missed Super Bowl XV.

NFL equals TEAM SPORT. No offense, but no Brady is no problem. Please welcome Matt Cassell.

OH, and, from the how quickly we forget department, do you remember how we were all introduced to Tom Brady in the NFL??

That's right--the LONG-TIME quarterback of the New England Patriots, Drew Bledsoe, (gasp!) got hurt!!!

Bledsoe never goes down, and who knows where Brady would be today, or if we would have ever heard of him......

So, to all the TV commentators who acted like Brady died Sunday rather than just suffer a season-ending injury, take heart.

There are well over 1500 other players in the NFL. Some pretty good ones, too. We'll be just fine.

And besides, it gives you more time to fixate on Brett Favre, and you media guys LOVE to do that, right??

I Saw The Late Show!!!

Go Sarah!!!

I cannot wait to hear Sarah answer her critics in a few minutes!

Not that any of them (PMSNBC, CNN, Keith Olbermann, Daily Kos, Pravda, et al) will listen....they'll all dismiss her as "not ready".

And Barack Obama's two extra years in the Senate puts him over the top? Show me his administrative experience.....

She has no foreign policy experience, they say! Ah, how much did Bill Clinton have in 1992?

Go Sarah!!!
