Well we are now officially in game week for all area college football teams. This week will consist of Kirk Ferentz telling us something to the effect of Tennessee Tech being a "good football team" even though we all know it will probably be a 56-3 type of game. The Screaming Eagles (actually they're Golden Eagles if you give a crap) have played four 1-A teams in the last two years (2009-Georgia and Kansas State. 2010-TCU and Arkansas). They lost all four games by a combined score of 193-17. We'll try and get a comment from Screaming Eagles coach Hayden Fox about that later in the week.

California won the Little League World Series. Seems like a cool experience, but I really hope the highlight of a person's life doesn't come when they're 12 years old. I remember that ESPN 30-for-30 on one of the LLWS teams that was complete with stories of guys who grew up and got into trouble and, long story short, pine for the glory days of the LLWS.
These days parents are even more out of control. I swear I heard that some of these moms went to stylists just so they'd be ready if they made it on TV. Yeah, like you're really going to parlay four or five seconds of facetime into the acting career that never materialized when you were 22.
MTV held their Music Video Awards tonight. I don't get it. How can you give out awards when pretty much all the music these days sucks?
