God I feel old. I got one of these contraptions for Christmas when I was like seven or eight, and I remember playing it for hours at a time. Mine was the Steelers vs. Rams from Super Bowl XIV, and I was neighborhood champ three years running. OK, that last part's not true, but I became very proficient and running the trap, although passing and kicking were near impossible. It's still in my parent's garage, and I threaten my wife that one of these days I'm going to bring it home and set it up next to the Atari 2600. Good times.

In a country where most people have no idea what a touchdown is, Hines Ward, whose mother is Korean, is suddenly a star.

No specifics on the numbers involved, but it's the initial offer, which probably means it's not the last. There's also an interesting little tidbit at the end of the article: "In addition to Brees' injury, the Chargers have leverage in backup Philip Rivers, who despite persistent rumors involving his being traded, will be a Charger in 2006."

The one thing I couldn't figure out about the Michaels/Tirico/Kornheiser Monday Night Football switcheroo was why ESPN, which just signed Michaels to a long-term deal, would let him leave for NBC. Now we know. NBC traded rights to Ryder Cup matches, Olympics highlights, historic cartoon character Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and more to ESPN to get Michaels out of his contract.

Has a team ever started the regular season without a head coach?

Michael Vick says he played most of the season with a sprained right knee. He also says he doesn't know why the Falcons' passing game doesn't consist more of the short, slant patterns of most West Coast offenses.

This should be interesting, but for sheer entertainment value, I'd prefer to see Tony Reali, Jason Whitlock and Skip Bayless doing these games.

In his penultimate column of the 2005 season, Gregg Easterbrook discusses the State of the Union, "premium destroyed" jeans, Bonnie Bernstein's new consulting service, intelligent design, and, oh yeah, the Super Bowl.
