NY Times: Week 2 Matchups

Have you missed the shiny, shadowed circle team logos? They're back! Oh, and Mike wrote some stuff, too.

So many hidden jokes.

Awesome as always, though I think that is the second time you used the "man who shot Plax" joke!

Yeah it is. It's also the second time it made me laugh out loud.

So Kevin Kolb is Neil Young? Or is he just Dallas Taylor?

Enjoyed it Mike, quite a few good lines and decent previews to boot - the way it should be!

That's some pretty cryptic material written there, Mike. I thought I was reading a New Yorker piece. Even the little officials at the top looked like one of their cartoons.

What really disappointed me was the necessity of the link for Kubla Khan. At least it was the poem and not a wikipedia article about the poem.

Otherwise it was great.

I would have really been impressed if it was a link to the song instead.

Anyone find it curious that the Browns logo looks just like an original Advil?

Great stuff Mike, and I too was curious if you were intending the comparison of Kolb and Young with the Helpless line. I think the Eagles would be downright giddy if they lucked into Neil Young leading their band...

Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Edwin Abbott Abbott in just the first three previews... awe-inspiring.

Sometimes I think these articles ought to be annotated, like the textbooks in college, just so we can appreciate all the hidden humor. Enjoyable read as always, even though I'm sure I missed a couple of good laughs.

"The Jaguars must solve their perpendicular predicament quickly, before Garrard starts dumping off to the polygons of Flatland."

That had me laughing so hard. I love that novel!

You can point out my spelling errors, but I'm still going to point out the truth.

One nitpick: There never was an Adelphi Stadium. There was an Adelphia Coliseum, and now there is an LP Field.
