Did Tecmo ever really go away?
I've read a lot of excitement this week about Tecmo Super Bowl. I'm actually not sure why. Over three years ago my brother showed me a website where you could play Tecmo Super Bowl with current NFL rosters, and it's not like you can't access an original NES and Tecmo Super Bowl (I have one myself and could go play it right now if I chose). But hey, everybody, knock yourself out over the "return" of Tecmo.
NFC North Rivals
CHFF has the NFC North Fillability Index up. Frankly, I think everything is coming up Milhouse...er, the Vikings. Brett Favre is angry and the world, and after throwing 38 TDs and 47 INTs the last two years (while going 12-20), I really don't see him improving this season (plus they lost Ahman Green. Some of the Bears' best defensive players want to leave town. Sometimes we're told we're supposed to feel sorry for Lion fans because Matt Millen has made the team perpetually awful. I don't know why I should pity Detroit sports fans: the Red Wings won three titles in the last ten years, the Tigers just won a pennant, and the Pistons have played more playoff games than anybody the last few years, and won a championship in 2004. Pitying Detroit fans would be like being a Boston fan who has seen a World Series title and three Super Bowl titles this decade but still wants to frequently whine about how sad it is that the Celtics didn't get Tim Duncan ten years ago.
The Vikings have agreed to terms on a local TV deal.
The Daily Norseman thinks Tarvaris Jackson is going to make people look stupid for voting him the 32nd best starter in the NFL (that means last). Hey, I think Tarvaris will surprise too; however, the point is that he'll SURPRISE. I don't think anybody is stupid for ranking Jackson last among starting QBs RIGHT NOW; if I weren't a Viking fan, I'd probably consider Jackson as the worst starter in the league, too.
We love pointing out stupid errors and faulty logic in paid sportswriters. So does The Feed, which wonders what Scoop Jackson has been reading if he thinks the media isn't criticizing Roger Clemens.
Kevin Garnett better than Tim Duncan? That's what Wages of Wins says.
Since it has come up at this blog, you might be interested to know this. After nearly five months, I am no longer a hardcore vegan; I am now but a weakcore vegetarian. But as a vegetarian, I'll still write about it here when animal rights issues intersect with sports.
