Grey City

Well, the city has this pall cast over it over a football game. Now mind you, this is Philadelphia and we are talking about the Eagles, but it is still something that I, as an outsider, really need to get used too. I am rooting for the Eagles, do not get me wrong, but I am beginning to grow sick and tired of the way the city seems to cover for Donovan McNabb. He seems like he can never do anything wrong, yet he often does. I have been saying for a long time that the secondary of the Eagles is suspect at best. Lito is overrated, and B-Dawg, while a leader and someone that really lays a hit on someone, can not cover a lick anymore. But, this loss falls at McNabb's feet, as many of the losses do. And if I have to seem him come up with some injury when his team has found a way to lose, in an effort to either look tougher or to have some sort of cover story, I am going to spit nails!

Bowl eligible week one

A new weekly list of the teams that as of right now are eligible for the 56 spots that are available for the big bucks that are the craziness of the holiday bowls. For now I am going to list all the teams that have hit the 6 win spot, though eventually I will pull the BCS teams, since they are guaranteed a spot. Someday I am hoping that there will be a time when there will be too many bowls and not enough teams.

Florida State 7-1
Boston College 6-2
Va Tech 8-0
Miami 6-1
Colorado 6-2
Texas 8-0
Texas Tech 7-1
West Va 7-1
Rutgers 6-2
Penn State 8-1
Wisconsin 8-1
Ohio St 6-2
Michigan 6-3
Utep 6-1
TCU 8-1
Toledo 6-2
Ucla 8-0
USC 8-0
Oregon 7-1
Cal 6-2
Georgia 7-1
Florida 6-2
Alabama 8-0
LSU 6-1
Auburn 6-2
Fresno St 6-1
Boise St 6-2

As you can see there are only 27 teams eligible at this moment, so alot of spots still open, though this week will open up more.

a pleasant surprise

So, I was all set to sit down and start a moaning about the DMV of Pennsylvania, because of past experiences in NJ, you just had to know that it was going to be a disaster. Instead, it was an easy trip. They have this ticker system, so you are able to sit there with your book, laptop, ipod, no lines. Then, even though due to the Patriot act you need to pretty much bring your mother along to prove who you are, the actual forms were painless. Plus, you can be made an organ donor and register to vote all in the same stop. Painless, more of a pain to find my social security card and birth certificate then to actually get the license.
