No Such Nonsense

A little of this, that and... what was I talking about again? It's TV, sports, pop culture and politics - all the stuff that really matters in life.

Sad Day in New Orleans too

Oh yeah, there was another game played yesterday. It just wasn't nearly as much fun. Drew Brees saw his Cinderella Saints turn to pumpkins and now Rex Grossman is going to the Superbowl. I'm not sure what else I can possibly say about that.

Hmmm. Well, I guess the game was enlightening in some respects. Here are some lessons learned in the Chicago-New Orleans game:

1. Hey rookie, don't taunt Brian Urlacher.
Reggie Bush had a spectacular touchdown run to bring the Saints within two points of Chicago. He ran for 88 yards and somersaulted his way into the end-zone. But right before the flip, he turned and clearly taunted a trailing Urlacher. Don't poke the Bear, dummy. Not smart, rookie, not smart.

2. It always hurts to lose.
Even after a spectacular season. Even a year after going 3-13. The Saints really wanted to win out there. They did better than anyone expected them to this season, and who can blame them for wanting to go all the way to the big game. It's a shame, really.

3. Mario Williams is totally screwed.
He didn't ask to be drafted first overall. But now, forever, he will be held up to the Reggie Bush standard and he will be found wanting. That's a little bit sad, don't you think.

4. Lovie Smith kinda thinks Rex Grossman sucks too.
Smith didn't actually invite Grossman to open it up out there, did he? Grossman had 144 passing yards on the day. By comparison, Drew Brees had 354. It could be a tough couple of weeks for Mr. Grossman. But at least he's not Tom Brady.
