Monday Thoughts/Threats

We rarely post on Mondays, so I thought I would try and break that habit. Some quick hits...

- For the first weekend this year, I did not hear from the 'stache. Our online gambling account shows net gain (I think), so hopefully he had something to do with that. Either that, or Gus the Bookie finally tracked him down.

- A devastating last two games for the Pens. I really don't want to say anything because a) it's in the past and b) this team is capable of getting very hot very quickly (see: spring run last year). But, they are also capabale of giving up huge leads. Devils tonight, Flyers Wednesday, Rangers Thursday, Flyers Saturday. Three of those on the road. Not saying it is make-or-break time, but that is one hell of a week coming up.

- The Pirates hired a manager.

- In more relevant news, the Steelers play tonight. Everyone seems to think that this is going to be an "old-school, rock em sock em, smash mouth" game. Everyone also thought that the Colts-Pats matchup yesterday would be a shootout. Just to be clear, the Ravens have played the Bengals, Jets, Cardinals, Browns, 49ers, Rams, and Bills. That is cream-puff central. Coincidentally, that schedule almost mirrors the Steelers' schedule (onlythe Rams make the Ravens' docket slightly worse). The point: both of these teams have played garbage competition and I don't think there is any reason to expect that this game plays out as everyone expects it to.

- Sam if you don't change the color scheme I will write a daily article reminding you that your QB is Anthony Morelli.
