The second half was another story. Did the defense forget to come back out of the locker room? Most painful of all was the Bears' Devin Hester, cool as a cucumber, grabbing the Giants’ field goal that fell short (and which would have set the score at 24-23, I believe) Hester just hangs out there while our guys head off the field, and then he runs 108 yards for a touchdown. That run tied a record the Bears’ Nathan Vasher set last year—doing the same dang thing to the San Francisco 49ers.
Only thing consoling me just now is that we are still at the top of the heap in the NFC East.

I'm not going to argue with John Madden.

What hit me was that I don't really know those players but I would definitely recognize their names--on other people. Kenny "The Gambler" Rogers is a famous singer, and Milton Bradley...well maybe that's not a person, but the name is the board-game company, right. But those names have been well known long enough--what were their parents thinking? I think people should at least start out with their own name to go through life with.

I hope the Giants have been practicing a lot, including the fine art of letting bygones be bygone. When I read some of the comments going back and forth right after our, uh, not-too-successful (as in 42-30) encounter with the Seattle Seahawks, I was getting the impression that our favorite game of both coach and many players was not football but blame.
Actually, I shouldn’t use that term, because it is tiresome the way “blame game” gets tossed out to block constructive criticism. We all need to be open to practical ideas for improvement, including the members of the team that’s at the bottom of the NFL heap as regards pass defense. Happily, Will Demps had some encouraging comments, and they centered on strengthening communication, building trust, and of all things, having fun. The NFC East is the toughest division, and the Giants have a rough schedule. But we can have a great season if we can act as a team and have some fun.

The band Tool is doing a mini tour playing at a few small venues in a few choice cities and I am dying to get tickets. I don’t even recognize the names of some of the places they are playing so these have got to be small venues and it looks like they have all sold out. This may be the precursor to a big stadium tour but I am not taking any chances. I am going to get my Tool tickets before this night is over!

Eli Manning and Peyton Manning will meet on the field for the first time ever, to open the 2006 season. It is hard to believe that these two haven’t played each other in the NFL but it’s true. I think the meeting would be all the sweeter if one of the brothers was on defense and could sack the other. That would be funny.

Now that football season is over I got to get out of town for a while. We went to
