Week 10 Rundown

In this week's FOXSports.com rundown, Mike Tanier quotes Andre 3000, gets ready for Sunday's Navajo broadcast of the Raiders-Broncos game, and picks the Dolphins to upset the Patriots. Hmmm, in tomorrow's New York Sun your humble editor will point out that Miami's secondary is surprisingly mediocre this year and pick the Patriots. Outsider fight!

For those who don't feel like digging through a codetalker's dictionary, "wo-tah lit" (Randy Moss) means "high smoke".

The new album I'm working on is entitled Chinese Democracy, not Chinese Conspiracy. I've thrown tantrums and ruined friendships over smaller gaffs than this.

If Michael Vick can have his best day passing against the Miami secondary I have confidence that Tom Brady can torch it. OTOH, the Dolphins are that divisional team that always seems to give the Pats fits, kind of like the Seahawks have a really hard time with the Rams and the Panthers have a hard time with the Falcons who in turn can't seem to beat the Bucs.

As in, there will be a democracy in China before that album comes out.

I used to love beating my brother at Stratego once every ten or so times we played. And, yeah, having his Field Marshall happen upon my spy was SWEET!

It is actually Big Boi, not Andre 3000, on Tomb of the Boom.

Seconding the vote for delicious butterscotch krimpets. My mom actually used to mail them to me when I was at college (I went to school in Pittsburgh, which has a lot to offer but no Tastykakes).

the guy has Anthony Wright starting for the Ravens this week--he should get out more

(not that it really matters if it's Wright or Boller)

My dream is for TO to go to the Raiders. Oh, they'd still be terrible, but he and Moss could team up for a TD celebration, and Joe Buck's head would explode.
It would be at least enough to get Kerry Collins back to drinking.

Take the under in the cowboys-eagles game. No owens, drew bledsoe on the road. this game has 10-6 in the middle of the fourth quarter written all over it.

"Nor is last week's starter, Samkon Gado, who showed promise when he saved Frodo from that giant spider but isn't an NFL-caliber starter at this point in his career."

priceless. then again, samkon gado = samwise gamgee = sean astin = rudy = unexpected big play. look out vick!

uh-oh, did i just disrespect the falcons?

I may get my rappers and Ravens QBs mixed up, but nothing beats the galvanizing power of a Tastykake reference to unify Philly residents.

Where I come from "Disco Biscuits" are hits of Ecstasy.

However, they make you thin, not fat, so it might be something else in this context.

Re #7/Duane: having his Field Marshall happen upon my spy was SWEET!

Uhmm... you do realize that if his Field Marshall happens upon your spy, your spie dies, right?

The spy only beats the Field Marshall if it attacks first. If the Field Marshall has the initiative, the spy is toast.

Something tells me your brother was being nice to you.

Gruden Goes For Two: Foolish Folly or Genius Gamble?

(A probabilistic "analysis")

Washington's painful one-point loss to Tampa Bay yesterday was about as gut-wrenching a seesaw battle as I've seen in a while, with huge momentum-changing plays every few minutes, four critical instant-replay reviews, and one unreviewable blown call.*
