The Colts want to resemble the intelligent aggressiveness of Belichick and these Patriots, but on Saturday, New England scolded them while resembling an oft-told Roger Ebert put-down: "You can play the notes. Someday, you may be able to play the music."
    Hahaha. Yeah, at least they're setting the bar high with wanting to emulate the Pats.

    I guess so. I mean, I guess I like Luck....but, seems like they were ready to crown that kid pretty early on, so that **** always kinda bothers me with the media.
    I know I'm really not SUPPOSED to like the Patriots, being a New Yorker, but....my boston hate doesnt carry over to football. wrong division, and not even the same conference. 1) we've beat the patriots the last 4 times we've played them, twice in the superbowl obviously, and yet for some reason, people still treat them like some sort of nemesis team, which i don't really understand. 2) they are one of the most exciting offenses to watch, consistently, for years now. 3)I love good football.

    A-Rod suing MLB, and the players union is fighting to overturn ban.
    http://espn.go.com/new-york/mlb/stor...sal-suspension

    I gotta say....I don't like A-Rod by any stretch of the imagination....but, this seems like a pretty clear cut decision in his favor, one I can't argue.

    The argument is simple:
    MLB has suspended players 50 games for finding positive test results(Braun, Melky to name a few). That sets a fairly obvious precedent.
    The MLB has never had a positive test result for A-Rod. Just reports from random scumbags, and Bosche or w/e his name is from biogenesis who sounds like a borderline child.
    Do I think he took PEDs? Yea, most likely. Do I think that the MLB can do whatever they want because of what they THINK he did? **** no, that's ridiculous. I'll be honest, I'm not even sure why MLB let it go this far. Just adds to the soap-opera that is baseball which I've come to hate over the past decade. Personally, I blame Bud Selig for letting baseball become what it is, as I think he's been senile for years and literally has the worst people make decisions for him. But that's a discussion for a different day lol

    Sooooooo this is new to people? Both Mannings use this in their cadence. I'm assuming it's because they had the same college coach(my understanding is that Eli went to Ole Miss to have the same coach as Peyton, David Cutcliffe)
