Don't be a Dick

So apparently Chef's coach "Cryin'" Dick Vermeil is upset with what the Donkey's Champ Bailey had to say about Kansas City's level of effort during last Monday's 30-10 stomping in Denver. Newsflash, Dick: don't shoot the messenger. Anyone watching the game could see that the Chiefs were half-assing it. Instead of getting pissed off at Champ for saying it, maybe you should get pissed off at your team for playing like that. The Donkeys are completely beatable, and your boys went in and laid a gigantic egg. Maybe the reason nobody on your team questioned Champ's effort during last year's blowout in KC is because he played hard the entire game. Did ya think of that? Don't get me wrong, I like the Chiefs okay (and root for them when they don't play the Bengals), but this is just ridiculous.

Mars Attacks!

Marry me, Kristen
Tonight's the night! Veronica Mars begins it's second season tonight on UPN at 9pm ET. If you haven't watched it, give it a shot. It's one of the better shows on TV right now.

As promised, the Countdown to Mars continues...

Only 7 more days!T-7 Days and counting until the Veronica Mars season two premiere. The UPN site (see banner at bottom) has added a couple more video clips (again requiring the use of the Satanic RealPlayer, or a far more benign alternative). One is a 60 second preview of the premiere episode which appears to answer at least one question regarding Logan and Weevil's status as last season's finale came to a close. The other is an almost 8 minute pseudo-recap of last season, and contains a lot of the best lines. "Everybody Wang Chung, dammit! Or I'll kick your ass!"

It appears that the September Sox that I know and love so well are back, clinging to a half-game lead in the AL East, having a much larger one being frittered away the past fews weeks. I now have a case of beer riding on them holding on to win. I know I'm used to disappointment, and you are on the "we won the World Series last year" free pass, but c'mon don't tank to that overpriced collection of individuals. Be a team. Be a GOOD team.

Are you ready for some football?

Is this it? Is this when "next year" becomes "this year"? My Bengals are 2-0 after impressive wins over Cleveland and Minnesota. Carson Palmer looks every bit the #1 overall pick with his league-leading 617 passing yards and 5 TD's vs. 1 INT. The defense, Marvin Lewis' specialty, had 7 takeaways against the hapless Viqueens on Sunday, and it would have been 9 if two fumble recoveries hadn't been wiped out on penalties. Fingers crossed.

Veronica Mars update tomorrow.

Sometime next week I'll probably recap what I think is the best of the new TV season as well.

Veronica Mars - T-14 Days and counting...

Here's this week's Kristen Bell picture. It's actually from a guest appearance she made on "Everwood". I just like cheerleader outfits, and I doubt it's something we'll ever see Veronica in. Tonight on UPN is the rerun of the first season finale, and if you haven't seen it, you may want to in preparation for the season two premiere in a couple of weeks. Go! Watch! Tell your friends! Check the banner at the bottom of the page for more VM info...

Drat. Maria loses to Kim Clijsters, who will play big faker Mary Pierce in the Finals. Go Kim!

I feel the same way, Maria:

Okay, just Emily, but hey I'm always looking for a reason to post pix of my girl, Kristen Bell.

If you have the evil RealPlayer (or a somewhat less evil alternative), you can watch it here. 21 Days and counting...

US Open - Day Nine - Update

Maria wins again! She advances to the Semis to play Kim Clijsters who thankfully removed the remaining Williams sister from competition.
