The Straightest Point between Two Courses is a Line

Random thoughts for a Saturday as the Resident Female sleeps and I jitter in anticipation of the Pats game:

-I am both afraid of the Broncos and supremely confident that the Pats will win. How is that possible?
-Nirvana Unplugged is still the greatest album ever recorded
-But Greenday's American Idiot is pretty damn good
-Why can't Alito give his opinion on recently decided cases? His arguments, that it would be a conflict of interests, makes the corrallary argument: The only person who has no freedom to discuss their views on cases are the one who we have to decide to give that power to...
-I don't care what anybody says: Jake Plummer is a crappy quarterback. You cannot convince me otherwise, and this includes the shock-collar treatment Mike Shanahan gave him this year.
-Speaking of Mike Shanahan, am I the only one who thinks he looks like a cross between Martin Sheen and a pissed off Stuart Little?
-I can't tell if the new 24 looks good (a la season 1 and 2), over the top (season 4), or just crappy (season 3).
-The Safeway sodas are just as good as their non-generic models, but a lot cheaper. Stop & Shop needs to catch up with them.
-Samurai Sudoku is way too addictive.
-The Kite Runner is a phenomenal book, as is David Halberstram's The Education of a Coach
-Testicles are both a blessing and a curse
-Tony Siragusa gives me a seizure whenever he speaks.
-The movie Murderball is unbelievable. A fantastic way to spend 80 minutes.

its neccessary to be extremely confident in your team even if they were the worst team in history simply because they are your team and if you didn't think they would win would you get all psycotically involved in the season? i wouldn't (although i don't care that much anyway) and then how would the franchise make any money? and it is also neccessary to be extremely afraid of the bronco's winning because well they are an excellent team with an excellent record this season and good experience and all. and it is important to have a healthy dose of reality that the pats could actually lose (again) and its the end of the season but not the end of the world...and that ramble had no point but its possible because its neccessary (think 1984)

dorf: do you ever bet on the horses?

Nope. Unless you count the Colts. In which case, yes. Which is frustrating. Or the Broncos, which was fun.
