Five minutes

That's all I have today. How much blogging can I get in? Let's find out. Go!

  • Packers 13, Pittsburgh 9. Defense is good. Brandon Jackson appears serviceable. Aaron Rodgers leads three scoring drives. A good start.
  • Rams 13, Vikings 10. No offense. Tarvaris Jackson appears to be as good as the 70s dance band Tavares. Heaven must be missing an angel....
  • Revised global warming data from NASA indicates that 1934, not 1998, is warmest year on record. Yep, let's fundamentally alter our way of life because of computer models that end up getting revised.
  • Romney wins Iowa straw poll. Of course he did. Still not sure we'll ever have a president named Mitt.
  • Booker T and the MGs play Dakota with local drummer pinch-hitting. Doesn't matter; any drummer worth a darn would know their material. Wish I'd been there.

Brewers win in dramatic style Saturday night and you talk about exhibition football?

Good grief man, it's not Packers 24/7/365.

Anonymous is obviously not from Wisconsin, or at least is not a normal Wisconsinite. If he/she was a normal Wisconsite, he/she would know that there are two tiers of reverence in Wisconsin Sports: The Packers and Everything else. If Brett Farve has a minor injury on his tractor in Hattiesberg, it would be bigger news than Price Fielder cranking out 5 home runs in one game. To quote Bruce Hornsby, "That's just the way it is...."

Maybe, but it doesn't have to be. Packers ... Smackers.

You're right, anonymous, it's not Packers 24/7/365. And it isn't on this blog, either, if you've been paying attention. I am greatly enjoying my beloved Brewers and their season. But the second anonymous is right; the Packers do tend to trump every other worthy sporting endeavor in Wisconsin, including the Brewers, Bucks, Badgers (in all their incarnations) and even my beloved Beloit College Buccaneers, who have oddly hired former Badger great Brian Vraney as their new coach. I can only assume that former Badget great Leroy Stahl didn't answer his cell phone on that one....
