Re: Seahags...It sucks losing to the goddamn Browns, doesn't it? At least you got to enjoy 4 wins so far. The Lambs are still looking for their first win this year...

Oh man that Masked Man cartoon used to run before the Rocky Horror Picture Show in Berkeley. That in turn was preceded by this amazing PSA by John Waters about how the audience wasn't allowed to smoke in the theater, all the while smoking like a fiend and loving it. See if you can't dig that up...

Mike - I hear ya. It was a good game nonetheless. Close game. I liked Derek Anderson when he got his shot to play for a while last year, and he's inspired a lot of confidence in the offense there this year. Who'd have thought Jamaal Lewis would do anything in Cleveland when he signed?

Heh - he runs for 4 TD's and Shaun Alexander (and of course the O line) can't get it going against one of the league's worst defenses. Cue the start of a very much more pass-oriented Seattle attack. RIP Seahawks run game.

On the bright side the Pats came back against Indy. I loved that.
