ZONER’S MONDAY MORSELS

0

Great Super Bowl last night. Especially if you, like me, had the Steelers and the under. Congrats to the Bus, Bill Cowher and all of Pittsburgh. The Bears will be doing some celebrating this time next year. Celebrating what I don’t know, but they are a jovial group. Seriously, this Steelers team has to be considered one of the best of all-time just because of the road they had to take, literally, to get the trophy.

Remember that they were just 7-5 back in December, 2 games behind the Bengals and weren’t even sure they could capture a wild card spot. So they went out and won 8 in a row, including the postseason, to become Super Bowl Champs. Very impressive. The individuals might not be among the best of all-time, but their accomplishment sure is. To the morsels…

–Be the first kid on your block to get the new Monopoly. Seems the cards have been updated.

–You can miss a lot of the subleties when watching witty programs like the Simpsons. You can also miss all the esoteric allusions. You really can. This explains. Then play with this and this when you are done reading. And then go do some work already.

–Someone asked me “Do you like Watercress and Arugala?” I told them I’m not really into ‘emo’ much anymore. But apparently it’s a healthy food, clocking in at #18 of The World’s Healthiest 29 Foods. ‘And now we’re up to our long distance request…’ (let me know if you get this)

–Meet The Father of Film Noir

–2 fun flash games for you. Throwing Rocks at Boys and also Bow Man

–And finally, Happy Birthday to valued reader PV, celebrating his 33rd today. Rock on PV!

    Dusty Baker is a self-centered thug who is overrated and belongs nowhere near a manager’s position. As much as I dislike the Cubs in general, I feel for you guys who have to put up with him.

    I think thug might be a bit strong, but it’s all too apparent he is not what he was billed to be.

    BTW, if you haven’t noticed I love your blog.

    Thanks, and likewise.

    I still say thug is accurate, but that may be my Cardinal bias speaking.

    No problem — as long as you don’t read this.

    Glad to see Baseball Musings backed-off his decision not to post to blogspot urls.

    Great minds think alike.

    If given the choice between Neifi, Walker and Hairston, Dusty chooses Neifi.

    Although I am not convinced he doesn’t play Neifi at SS over Cedeno and start Walker at 2B.

    I addressed the same issue at http://rotomusing.blogspot.com/2006/01/chicago-cubs.html

    And at various other times as one would expect a site devoted to Rotisserie baseball would do when dealing with Dusty baker.

    Did you find this via baseball musings?

    I’ll have to go check out your column.

    If you love roto, you should check out Scoresheet Baseball (scoresheet.com) It’s more simulation than just compiling numbers. I find it to be the best game out there.

    Cool. I just noticed he linked to me.
