I'd definitely like to see those pix, as promised.

Really? That's your favorite clip? I mean, it wouldn't work, so I don't know how good it is, but I can't believe it's not this:

Josh Brown is the shit. By far, my favorite player, other than the Hush.

All armies lose a ton of soldiers every year to drugs, mental health, stupidity, and all-around inability to satisfactorily carry out their duties. Ask any soldier what percentage of those he did basic training with were hopeless fucktards. It's a large number. Most of the shock over the reduced standards for admission ignores the fact that the dim bulbs, druggies and felons will all get mustered out long before they ever get in a position to harm anyone. All it ends up doing is costing the Army more money.

Marion Barber is a tough running back. The Seahawks could use someone like him. And yeah, that play is unbelievable.

Jonah - you posted your video twice, so me too.

Best clip of 2006 (crappish quality, yet delicious)

Go Pats!

Llyod, I like the half million replays on that one.

Posted by Katelyn | December 14, 2007 10:37 AM

Yeah, Champ got cold cocked, BUT Brady got picked. Did the Broncos score after that play?

Posted by Jonah Spangenthal-Lee | December 14, 2007 10:50 AM

Heh. Yeah, yeah, I know, Jonah. Pats lost to Denver. So far so good in 2007. Getting run down by a tight end like that, though -- like Hester finding Josh Brown -- is an inspirational message on Effort.

"Wow they're really holding the line."

"What they need is a safety."
