The Apocalypse Watch Is Over

All seems right with the world again. The Red Sox choked in October, the Braves won the division but lost in the first round of the playoffs (albeit in dramatic fashion-18 Innings!) and THE MIGHTY TITANS HAVE WON AGAIN...

Three notes on the Titans win- Jeff Fisher received his 100th career victory, Steve McNair became the second player in franchise history and the 49th player in the NFL to reach 25,000 passing yards, and Jarret Payton, son of the late great Walter Payton rushed for his first career touchdown. Many reasons to celebrate, despite the fact the Titans were playing the sack prone Houston Texans. I'll let the following picture give you an idea of how the day went for David Carr, QB for the Texans...

This weekend I also had the pleasure of watching the Nashville Predators defeat the Anaheim Mighty Ducks in an exciting overtime shootout, which is part of the new rules for the NHL. This, I very much liked. Both teams were physically exhausted by the end of regulation, so the five minute overtime went quickly. The new rule is after the five minute overtime, you have a shootout to see who wins. This particular shootout ended with the newly acquired big gun Paul Kariya filling the basket for the win. Overall it was very exciting and left us wondering why the NHL waited so long to implement this in the system. GO PREDS!!

Yes, life is (somewhat) back to normal..
