Sleepless in Seattle: Watch Out for the Seahawks in the Playoffs


The NFL has seen its fair share of Cinderella stories in recent years. In 2007, the sixth-seed New York Giants upset the 18-0 New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIV. Then there was the 9-7 Arizona Cardinals, who hosted a playoff game and appeared in the franchise’s first Super Bowl ever. However, there is one underdog story that the NFL has never seen; that is a sub-.500 team making the playoffs….until now.

Finally! The Irish beat the Trojans … yes, I mean ND vs. USC

notre dame

He came to Notre Dame four years ago to win and make a difference on the field. Many would argue that he never came close to his goal … until tonight.

Robert Hughes’ heart, soul and determination led the Irish to their first victory over Southern Cal in the past nine years.He was benched more than once during his career. He was in South Bend when his brother was murdered. He watched his team fall apart … year after year …

But he never gave up.

And then, when it mattered the most, he stepped up and led his beloved Irish to victory.

Pete Carroll Book Tour should be CANCELLED


Remember that email forward circulating a few years ago? Listing the shortest books ever written?

Updated for today, it would read something like “Sobriety, Sanity, and Self-Control” by Lindsay Lohan, “Anger Management” by Mel Gibson, “Racial Tolerance and Understanding” by Rush Limbaugh, “Sound Logic, Reason and Decision-Making” co-authored by Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann…well, you get the idea.

I would put Pete Carroll’s “Win Forever” in the same exact category. A man who just burned the once proud USC program into the ground, and then fled college football to find safe asylum with the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks, dodging NCAA repercussions, doesn’t deserve dollar one from his book tour. He doesn’t even DESERVE A BOOK.

He won’t admit it, and it hasn’t been proven yet, but he knew what was going on USC, and did nothing to stop it. And now the Trojans are a shell of a program because of rampant corruption occurring on his watch.

This is supposed to be a role model?
