For those of you that read my blog on a consistent basis I know my words were ringing in your head watching the Patriots/Ravens game on Sunday. KICKERS WILL RUIN YOUR LIFE!!! Everyone was saying all the right things after Billy Cundiff did his shankapotimus impersonation from 32 yards out, but I'm sure a few of his teammates want to give him a good old fashioned soap beat down Full Metal Jacket style. As for Kyle Williams fumbling the game away in San Francisco someone needs to get him a therapist quickly. Super Bowls are hard to come by and I know making a blunder of that magnitude will linger in his head for years. Here are some observations over the weekend.
After the success of Jim Harbaugh and Pete Carroll, NFL teams are looking to the college ranks more often for coaching talent. Good thing Chip Kelly changed his mind about the Tampa Bay position choosing to stay at Oregon. He wasn't ready top make the leap.
After Serena Williams' loss in the fourth round of the Australian Open there are no more American men or women in the draw. US tennis is still a work in progress.
Joe Paterno 1926-2012. Although technically Joe Paterno passed away from complications due to his lung cancer treatment those close to him would say the shame and embarrassment of the Penn St. sex abuse scandal was more than he could endure. I'd be inclined to agree. Rest in peace Joe Paterno. Your legacy is safe.
Dare I say it, Eli Manning is an elite quarterback. Not only is he an elite quarterback, but for the time being he's the best quarterback in his family as well. Peyton's got some work to do if he wants to tip the scale back in his favor.
