COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYS THEIR CHAMPIONSHIP GAME ON A MONDAY BECAUSE THEY DO NOT WANT TO GO UP AGAINST NFL IN THE RATINGS DEPARTMENT. SATURDAY AND SUNDAY EACH HAD A NIGHT GAME IN THE NFL. SO COLLEGE WAITS UNTIL MONDAY WHEN THEY WILL BE THE ONLY FOOTBALL ON TV.

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE!

I HOPE THAT JUST-MAYBE-POSSIBLY A PRICE WAR BETWEEN VERIZON COMMUNICATIONS INC. AND AMERICAN TELEPHONE & TELEGRAPH WILL ERUPT AND MY PHONE BILL WILL GO DOWN A WEE BIT.

GOOD MORNING, DUCKS! I THINK THERE IS NO WAY I'LL BE ABLE TO CONCENTRATE ON ANYTHING AT WORK TODAY.

CAN WE GET A NEW DUCKS VIDEO OR POST UP ON BLOGTOWN ABOUT EVERY HALF-HOUR SO I'LL HAVE SOMETHING TO DO?

@HC: YEAH, EXCELLENT. AND I HEARD ON THE RADIO THIS MORNING THAT THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION RALLY IN SCOTTSDALE HAD OTIS DAY & THE KNIGHTS PERFORMING!

GOOOOD MORNING AAALLLLLL!!! THERE ARE SEVERAL FOORBALL GAMES GOING ON TODAY AND TOMORROW, AND AM CONMFUSED ABOUT THE LEAGUES! I GUESS I NEED TO GET BACK MY FOOTBALL LITERACY BACK!!!

SPEAKING ABOUT THE ISSUE OF THE DEAD BIRDS FALLING DOWN FROM THE SKY, DEAD, I HAVE A SERIOUS PROPOSAL FOR THE SCIENTIFICALLY CONCERNED:

HERDS OF HUMANS IN FORMATIONS OF 20´S FLYING THE SKIES IN MOTORIZED AIR VEHICLES. SO IF THEY START DROPPING DEAD, AND ONE SURVIVES, "LOST" STYLE, HE CAN TELL US ALL!!!

SCIENTISEST , DO IT, IT´S THE ONLY WAY TO GET TO KNOW FROM THE INSIDE THE KNITTY GRITTY OF THIS DEAD BIRDS FALLING FROM THE SKIES ISSUE!!! AM SO CURIOUS ABOUT IT AAALLLL!!!

I'M HELLA EXCITED FOR BRITNEY'S NEW SINGLE!! I HOPE SHE TEAMS UP WITH SOME OTHER FEMALE POPSTARS FOR A SUPER-GROUP A LA SPICE GIRLS OR DESTINY'S CHILDREN. IMAGINE HER AND GAGA AND P!NK GOING ON TOUR TOGETHER!!!!!!
12
GOOD MORNING! JONESER, BY PUTTING "GO DUCKS" IN LOWER CASE LETTERS YOU HAVE NOW ENSURED THAT THE DUCKS WILL LOSE. I HOPE THAT WAS YOUR INTENTION.
13
GOODMORNING BLOGSTERS.

GO DUX!!!

RE: MONDAY GAME - IT'S BECAUSE THE BCS/NCAA/BOWLS ARE A BUNCH OF MONEY-HUNGRY FUCKERS. GIVE US A REAL PLAYOFF, PLEASE. THIS WHOLE BSC THING SUCKS BALLS.
14
LEAKY, YOU DRINK A LOT OF COFFEE IN THE MORNING, DON'T YOU? WITH A BIT OF IRISH WHISKEY, PERHAPS?
15
GOOD MORNING ALL, AND +1 RUSTY.

@ ERIC, I HAVE YET TO SEE A PLAYOFF PLAN THAT DOESN'T SIMPLY REPLACE SEASON-LONG BICKERING OVER THE BCS BERTHS WITH SEASON-LONG BICKERING OVER WHO GETS THE PLAYOFF BERTHS.

I THINK THE CURRENT SYSTEM PROVES EXACTLY AS MUCH AS ANY PLAYOFF WOULD, GIVEN THE CURRENT CONFERENCE DIVISIONS.

THE ONLY THING THAT WOULD IMPROVE D1 SPORTS (AND ALL SPORTS REALLY) WOULD BE TO MOVE TO A TIERED SYSTEM WHERE TEAMS CAN GO UP AND DOWN TIERS EACH SEASON DEPENDING ON THEIR PERFORMANCE. EACH TIER COULD HAVE A SIMPLE PLAYOFF SYSTEM. I'M GUESSING SUCH A SYSTEM IS FAMILIAR TO SOMEONE WITH YOUR AVATAR.

AS YOU KNOW, THERE ISN'T A SNOWBALL'S CHANCE IN HELL OF THAT ACTUALLY HAPPENING, BECAUSE MONEY IS THE REAL DRIVER OF THESE THINGS, NOT SPORTS EXCELLENCE OR WHATEVER.
16
@ CC - HEAR YOU BUT RESPECTFULLY DISAGREE. AN 8 TEAM PLAYOFF WOULD MEAN THAT ANY CHAMP WOULD HAVE TO WIN THREE CONSECUTIVE GAMES AGAINST THE (PRESUMABLY) BEST TEAMS IN THE NATION. NOT PERFECT, BUT MILES BETTER THAN NOW. LESS BICKERING IF 8 TEAMS HAVE A SHOT AT IT VS. 2.

AND YES, CONGRESS SHOULD STEP IN AND MAKE ALL SPORTS HAVE PROMOTION/RELEGATION. AS YOU SAY, THOUGH, THE MONEY MEN WILL NEVER ALLOW SUCH A TRAVESTY TO OCCUR.
17
WE ALL HATE THE BCS AND ITS EAST COAST BIAS, BUT TONIGHT IS ABOUT SHOVING OUR WEST COAST PROWESS DOWN THE SEC'S COLLECTIVE AND CHOKING THROAT.

GO DUCKS!
18
@McAngryPants

I DOUBT IT REQUIRES 5 1/2 HOURS TO GET DRUNK, BUT I NONETHELESS ADMIRE YOUR DEDICATION TO YOUR CRAFT
19
ELDEPECHE, YOU DIDN'T GO TO U OF O, DID YOU?

NOT TO GET ALL "BACK IN MY DAY" OR ANYTHING, BUT BACK IN MY DAY, THERE WAS A 10:15am KICKOFF AT AUTZEN, AND MY ROOMMATE AND I KILLED A FIFTH OF RUM THROUGH TWO PITCHERS OF MOJITOS BY THE TIME WE LEFT THE HOUSE. IT TAKES DEDICATION TO START DRINKING AT 7:45.
20
@ OREGOMETRY - HAH! DURING MY 'BACK IN THE DAY' MY FRIENDS AND I WOULD ALWAYS TALK ABOUT 'TAKING IT EASY' THE NIGHT BEFORE TO SAVE OURSELVES FOR GAME DAY. NEVER WORKED FOR SOME REASON... SO IT INEVITABLY MEANT MORNING AFTER BLOODY MARY'S FOR BREAKFAST AND ON FROM THERE.

GOOD TIMES...
21
THAT SORT OF THING SEEMS TO BE COMMONPLACE. JUST LIKE THE WHOLE "I'M TAKING IT EASY TONIGHT, BECAUSE TOMORROW IS ST. PATRICK'S DAY/FOURTH OF JULY/NEW YEAR'S EVE/MLK DAY" ROUTINE NEVER SEEMED TO WORK.
22
@TODD: THANKS TODD FOR THE ADVICE, I´LL START TOMORROW. NO, THE THING IS THAT SOMETIMES I COME IN AND ORDERLY START TO COMMENT HALF ASLEEP!!!

BUT I STILL HAVE FAITH THAT A BUNCH OF SCIENTIST WILL CARRY OUT MY HUMAN FLYING FORMATION EXPERIMENT!!!

IF I DON´T SAY "GO DUCKS!" WILL I GET MY ASS KICKED TODAY? AM FEELING THE PRESSURE.
23
GET ON THE BANDWAGON, LEAKY!

THESE COLORS DON'T RUN!
24
HAHAHAHA, WELL, I REALLY HOPE THEY WIN. IF THEY HAVE MORE THAN 2 CONSECUTIVELY INCOMPLETE PASSES OR ONE FUMBLE IN THE FIRST 5 MINUTES, I´D HAVE TO LEAVE THE ROOM OR BITE MY LIPS REAAALLY HARD.
25
@Leaky -- the massive bird deaths started when Angry Birds got popular. Save the birds step away from the Ifone.
26
@ROSY: I THINK SO TOO. IPHONE IS SO PASSÉ. SO LAST WEEK.
