Things that went through my mind this weekend:</P>I hope that Burger King is not a sponsor of our site.&#160; We&rsquo;d love to have them if not, but those new commercials where the people are rambling in monotone, meaningless sentences about the breakfast menu may send the entire company into bankruptcy.&#160; They are brutal!&#160; Bring back Burger the King!&#160; He was great!</P>For the first time since I can remember in an OSU Texas Tech game I didn&rsquo;t fear Tech coming back to win after they were down by three scores.&#160; At least not as much as in the past.&#160; It&rsquo;s a combination of two things:&#160; 1. Bill Young is now on the sidelines for the Cowboys&#160; 2.Mike Leach is no longer there for the Red Raiders.&#160; Tommy T may to on to win a Big 12 title in Lubbock, but the fear factor of facing that offense is gone and I&rsquo;m not sure what Tech had going other than that.</P>Blake Griffin and Sam Bradford will both be Rookie of the Year in their leagues.&#160; John Wall and injury are the only things standing in the way of it.&#160; </P>That final, last-ditch play with all of the laterals in the Dallas Cowboys&rsquo; game is microcosm of the team itself.&#160; Full of bluster and entertaining at times, but in the end going nowhere.</P>Dallas fans saying you want Wade Phillips fired (and I agree with you) need to ask this question:&#160; Who can they get to replace him?&#160; Jason Garrett?&#160; Most want him out with Phillips.&#160; Do you think Bill Cowher or John Gruden or Tony Dungy wants to come in and let Jerry Jones have all of the power?</P>Baseball has to do something.&#160; They are losing the race with the NBA, NFL and College Football.&#160; Ratings are terrible and attendance is down, but nobody wants to admit there&rsquo;s a problem.&#160; Just as with the steriod era, Bud Selig and his boys are burying their heads in the sand.&#160; Attendance and ratings are down.&#160; That means fewer eyeballs on the game and that will eventually mean fewer advertisers want to spend the money to have their products advertised on game broadcasts and in stadiums.&#160; &#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;</P><BR/>
