*The Pats lost to the Colts last night, 18-15. They did everything they were supposed to - hold the ball for nearly 35 minutes, get passes to Welker and Moss, not let the Colts receivers get big plays - but this was a case of one team playing for their season against one that was shorthanded. HZMLS will certainly have more analysis of this game later in the day, but Pats fans should learn to face the reality that a team starting Matt Cassell at quarterback and BenJarvus Green-Ellis at running back won't win every game, even when they execute to the fullest of their capacities. Sorry to shit in your cereal like that.
*The C's lost to the Pacers on Saturday night, 95-79. If this result had happened last year, I probably would have been throwing things, but the combination of a better Pacers team/back-to-back C's games/my increased Xanax prescription left me pretty lucid after this result. Danny Granger, for those of you that haven't seen him play, is the real fucking deal, like a poor man's Scottie Pippen. The C's 34% shooting on the night didn't help matters either, nor did the fact that they've forgotten so far this season that "free throws" are, in fact, free from defenders or obstruction of any kind.
*Florida's own Sex Cannon rallied the Bears over the, um, winless Lions. As someone who was in Gainesville at the same time as Grossman, I'll just say nobody should be surprised if, about 12-14 years from now, we don't hear about a bunch of high school quarterbacks from Florida with questionable paternal lineage with a tendency to overthrow their receivers by roughly 40 yards on every pass. In even better news, it looks like Grossman will be starting for the next month, a month that I'd like to therefore christen as SexVember. And yes, I know that has absolutely nothing to do with Boston sports, but I just wanted to say "SexVember" before the KSK guys got to.
