"have to dismiss Chuck Berry as Director of Bathroom Security" Thankfully, PipeFitters537 has room for him. "I'm pissin' in your mouf girl, how's it taste?" It's observations like this that lift this column above all others.

You can also feel free to change the Browns to the Bills in the first game, but I think it is somehow possibly for Cleveland to lose two games at the same time in two completely physically distinct locations.

Actually, that's the plan in Cleveland; just go ahead and lose 2 per week and take Nov and Dec off. Might as well. It already looks like they're taking Sep and Oct off. And I have to say I love that Bellichek was caught blatently cheating at... Wait, I've just been handed a note. Excuse me, I meant to say, "Informed that his interpretation of the rules was incorrect." Yeah, right, just like the Bolivian army informed Butch and Sundance that bank robbery was frowned upon. Not that $500,000 is that big a deal to him. I mean, what's he spend money on anyway? Sure as hell not clothes.

Oh shit: an interpretation of language joke and a Belichick can't dress hisself gag, all coupled with a misspelling. Lookout Jackie Martling, there's a new king in town.

Seriously, is Belichick really that hard to spell? It's not like his name has been on every sports site non-stop for a week or anything.

Hey, you guys notice that this Banacek guy seems to wear torn up hoodies a lot? Crazy stuff, that.

Mea culpa, mea culpa, I actually thought I knew how to spell it and didn't look. But it's all moot now. I just found out it's not Belichick's fault anyway. He got Alberto Gonzales to interpret the NFL rulebook for him. (And, yes, you better beleive I looked up Gonzales.)

Calm down, Texans fans Ė it was freaking Kansas City. Iím sure England didnít get all cocky when they waxed Argentina in the Falklands. Panthers 24, Texans 17. You say that wfrazerjr, but have you ever seen a llama outfitted in full combat gear? What I really want to know is what are the odds that we ever see Belichick doing promos for TiVo "When I can't be there to tape it myself I use TiVo."

Going into the Sunday night and Monday games: SU: 10-4 ATS: 8-6 Lock of the Week: 1-0 Trifecta: 0-1 (Cincy, bite my shiny metal ass) My possible future brother-in-law, however, hit two different four-team parlays. I'll be over here drinking and crying.

Fraze, please, in the future, never pick the Panthers to win a game. Please!!

That Broncos-Raiders came was ridiculous. The NFL needs to change the rule so that the players on the field actually hear the whistle or it doesn't count as a timeout. The Broncos on the field thought they had lost the game, too. This happened last season as well, and it really needs to be fixed.

Perhaps as a solution, if the coach gets the timeout that takes the FG off the board, the opposing PK gets to kick said coach in the nuts. It'd at least make them think twice.
