Hmm. I seem to be chatting with myself. Listening to the Vikings describing their draft, which they felt was good, I noticed both Speilman and Childress say they picked players that loved the game. Other years character was mentioned. I can't imagine playing this grueling game unless you loved it. I think maybe Favre's love of the game pointed out to them the importance of this trait?

Will have to watch tonight to see what the Vikings pick. I watched last night. We should get the 2nd pick tonight unless we again trade.

The Minnesota Vikings took nobody in the first round of the draft. They traded down their 30th pick to Detroit for a top 2nd round a fourth and another pick. Lots of Brett Favre speculation.

I see we play the Super Bowl champ Saints at New Orleans on Thursday, September 9th, at 7:30. I hope Brett Favre feels the competive spirit and wants to come back and beat them this time. We have a tough schedule and if Farve comes back about 5 weeks the top game to watch.

I guess it will be this evening before the NFL schedule is announced. There is a chat with the Commissioner at 2 about this.

I did it!! I got all caught up on my e-mails and then noticed I'd gotten the most SparkPoints you can get. 10. I wonder if I read more than ten but since I'd gotten the most I could they are just wasted. Not that any e-mail is a waste.

I almost got hit by a car on the way home from the library. I had stopped at the corner waiting for the light to change. Across from me was a car also waiting for the light. A car pulled up to me, halfway into the cross walk, and the driver was looking at the car. As the light changed I stepped into the street, the car across from me went, and the car by me started forward not ever looking at me. I yelled and hollared and waved my hands. He touched my pantlegs but managed to brake without hitting. Needless to say I was upset.

I love books and libraries. I used to buy them but after packing so many in boxes and giving them away when moving and not really having money to buy them I started using the library. Sounds like a great fundraiser.

After reading the insider today I realize I probably will never earn the trivia trophy even though I play it every day. You have to answer at least 30 in a month and get 90% right. I already answered 90 but only 74% right in March. The do have the same questions over time but for some reason I still give the wrong answer.

Lots of speculation about McNabb. One report said if he left the Eagles he'd like to be back with Childress but others say nothing has been decided.

I wish Favre would make up his mind and let us know. Then some think he has but it hasn't been made public and that's why Childress is after McNabb.

I don't know if we would have defeated the Saints with the new rule on OT in playoff games. If the team that gets the coin toss doesn't make a touchdown the other team gets a chance. I'm sure there would be less field goal attempts that now win the game. Favre might not have made it back on the field but obviously they were prepared when they went to the coin toss. I often think the whole game should count not just that last 10 seconds in a lot of games. Makes kickers important.
