Coming Soon to a theatre near you: The NFL Preview Show Extravaganza

That's right people. Very, very soon, I will be starting the second ever NFL Preview Show Extravaganza. You might remember these classics. They went something like this. I'm still figuring out what I want to do with this year's edition, but I know it will be classic.

Once again, I will be previewing all 32 teams, as we once again prepare for the 2008 NFL season. I am personally stoked for this season. I think it will be a lot of fun like it always has been. There are so many questions that need to be answered.

We'll be going in this order:

NFC East

NFC North

NFC South

NFC West

AFC East

AFC North

AFC South

AFC West

The first preview should be ready to go on July 9. Stay tuned!

The Mondays: Death of a Legend

Once in a while, I like to make a turn off of the highway of football and discuss something else. On Sunday evening, the world lost a legendary comedian. George Carlin died at the age of 71.

The man is a legend. Now granted, I'm 20 years old, but I've seen some of his stand-up specials and listened to some of his albums. I also remember when he was on Shining Time Station, when he replaced Ringo Starr to be Mr. Conductor. This of course happened when I was a youngin. Who could forget his fantastic role as Cardinal Glick in the Kevin Smith classic, Dogma. If you're thinking Buddy Christ, I'm way ahead of you.





To give tribute to this legend, here are some videos for you to enjoy. Please note, some of these videos are in fact Not Safe For Work, due to the language.

Hump Night (Not Day): Arrington Arrested

Happy Hump Evening to you. It is the late edition for you crazy football fans. Here's what is going on in the NFL at the moment.

Arrington arrested in night club fight- Cardinals running back J.J. Arrington has arrested by Rocky Mount (High), N.C. police after a fight in a night club. Arrington was charged with disorderly conduct earlier this morning. The former Cal running back has not worked out well for the Cardinals. If the Cedric Benson situation has taught us anything, it's that Arrington could be out of a job soon- AZ Central

Walker expected at Raiders camp- The Raiders expect newly signed receiver Javon Walker to be with the team once training camp starts in Napa, Calif. next month. Over the weekend, Walker was found unconscious after a robbery on a Las Vegas street. Walker has been released from the hospital with only facial injuries- AP/ SF Gate

The battle at quarterback continues
- It's a three-way shootout to determine who will be quarterback in San Francisco. The three players battling it out are 2005 #1 overall pick Alex Smith, J.T. O'Sullivan and Shaun Hill. One of these three will be starting for the 49ers soon enough. It's Smith's spot to lose ultimately, but if it's not Smith than the likely choice is Hill.

That's all I have for now. Enjoy your evening.

The Best of the Mondays: Week 2

So I'm doing week two of the Best of the Mondays. It is very exciting. I'm happy to do it. Oh, how it seemed to be so long ago. Matt Schaub was turning into a household name. The Giants started 0-2, GASP! So kick back, and enjoy.


  • Houston Texans defeated the Carolina Panthers, 34-21- How about Matt Schaub, two touchdown passes and 228 yards passing. How about Andre Johnson, seven catches, 120 yards and two touchdowns. This team might surprise a lot of people come playoff time. Their next test will come against Indy at home, do I smell an upset?- Well it's the Colts.

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the New Orleans Saints, 31-14- The Saints knocked me out of a Survival Pool. Thanks guys- Oh those Bucs! I'm never picking the Saints in a survival pool again.

  • Arizona Cardinals defeated the Seattle Seahawks, 23-20- This is a joke, right?- How strange is it to see the Seahawks lose?

  • Green Bay Packers destroyed the New York Giants, 35-14- I'm not a Brett Favre fan or a Packers fan, but Favre is certainly a winner- Don't worry, the re-match is better.

  • ROMO ALERT: Tony Romo threw for 186 yards and two touchdowns in a 37-20 victory over the Miami Dolphins- Yep......

  • Monday Night Pick: Washington Redskins over Philadelphia Eagles- Yay!
See ya Wednesday

UPDATE: More Flood Photos




Earlier this morning, I posted some pics of the flooding in my town. Now, after making the rounds at around 8 a.m., I have more pics to show you. You can see some of it on the IReport web site at CNN.com.


You might ask why I'm doing this instead of talking about Cedric Benson being released, or Tom Brady having foot odor issues (He doesn't to my knowledge).

I'm doing this because this is an important event for me. This flood is much more important than any talk about the NFL at this point.

I hope to share these images and words with you for the rest of the week. More importantly, I hope you take in these images and words that I give you. Put these images in your head, and put them in your heart.

At some point, I will be able to write again about football. I have my team previews to do. I know that will be a big summer project. However, now is not the time. We are still in a flood warning. However, the good news is the river should crest soon at 19.3 ft. As of 9 a.m. this morning, the river was at 19.1 ft.

I hope to have more pictures and words for you folks this week.

Stay safe

A Flood At Home


Wow, I'm doing quite a bit of weather related posts as of lately. By the time you read this, I'll probably be in my waverunner, or not. I'm not really sure about that honestly. Anyway, the city where I'm at, Waverly, Iowa, is in a flood warning until Sunday at potentially the earliest.

If I don't have many posts this week, you'll know why (Potentially hiding out at Red Cross shelter). However, while I sit here in my downstairs room, listening to NOAA Weather Radio, I thought I'd upload some pics of the flood from early today. This is from Monday afternoon, keep in mind, it is expected to get worse.

NOTE: Some of these photos can be viewed at IReport on CNN.com.

The Best of the Mondays: Week 1

I've finally decided to do this after months and months of promises. I'm doing the best of the Mondays, my own Monday morning analysis of the week's games. Today, we go back to week one of the 2007 regular season. I'll give my own analysis of my analysis. Sounds stupid, doesn't it? I'll have my present day thoughts in italics.

My oh my how the time passes. Tony Romo picked apart the eventual Super Bowl champions. Kevin Everett's career and life were uncertain after his injury during the kickoff against Denver. Also, the Patriots destroyed the Jets in their first game of the regular season. (NOTE: The whole Spygate controversy started the afternoon that this post was made). Enjoy the post kiddies and I'll see you on Hump Day.

  • New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is certainly having fun with his new offensive weapons. His new three new wide receivers combined for 263 yards. Randy Moss led the team with 183 yards and one touchdown- Did Mangini get the last laugh?

    New York Jet fans were cheering Kellen Clemons as he came into the game, replacing injured Chad Pennington. What is up with that?- No it had to be the hoodie!

    How about that Ellis Hobbs, 108-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, longest in NFL History. Big props to Hobbs!- Woo, Ellis Hobbs!

  • The Chicago Bears lost to the San Diego Chargers 14-3. I am disappointed. They held LaDainian Tomlinson to 25 yards on the ground. The Bears offense needs to improve, or heads will roll- The Chargers were up and down early on, but they stuck it out and made it to the AFC title game.

  • A big congratulations goes out to Houston Texans defensive end, Mario Williams, scoring his first touchdown on a fumble recovery. Way to go man. By the way, the Texans defeated the Kansas City Chiefs, 20-3- Who knew that the Texans would be a big surprise in the NFL that season? Not I!

  • Condolensces go out to Buffalo Bills tight end Kevin Everett, who is recovering from surgery this morning after a helmut-to-helmut collison left him unconscious. Hopefully, it is nothing serious, but definitely keep him in your thoughts and prayers- I'm glad he made it through and is now walking again.

  • ROMO ALERT: Tony Romo shined on Sunday Night (is Football Night), throwing for 345 yards and four touchdowns. The Cowboys won the game 45-35. It was definitely a great way to end a great Sunday- A lot of questions came up in regards to the competency of the Giants. Hindsight now tells us differently.

  • Monday Night Picks: I'm picking the Baltimore Ravens over the Cincinnati Bengals and the San Francisco 49ers over the Arizona Cardinals- I went 1-1 on that night in case you forgot

The Mondays: Leinart right deck for Cards

Happy Monday! It's the first Monday in June and I am still stoked about last night's WEC event.

Leinart the starter in Arizona- It looks like Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt has made a decision to stick with Matty Leinart at the quarterback spot. According to reports, it seems that Leinart has been working hard this offseason to prove that he will be the Cards quarterback in 2008- Arizona Republic

Mangini's feeling the heat of the summer
- As I always say (yeah right), if you can't stand the heat, get out of the oven. Well from the looks of it, Mangini is in the oven now. With the Giants winning a Super Bowl and the Jets coming off a 4-12 season, you can bet that Mangini's feeling the heat. If things don't go well for the J-E-T-S, then the Mangini might get C-A-N-N-E-D! I love spelling words- New York Post

Tyree catch doesn't haunt Harrison- Does everybody remember that David Tyree catch in the Super Bowl? Rodney Harrison certainly remembers that catch and he's moved on from that moment. In that type of situation, all you can do is move on. Will fans bring it up? They might do that, but it's not like it was a Scott Norwood moment. Harrison was a witness to a historic moment of the Super Bowl- The Boston Globe

That's all I have for now. Enjoy your Monday!
