C'mon Titans... er... uhh... something!
The Titans are poised to have a breakthrough to mediocrity this year. Actually, they've lost so much talent that many have predicted them to do even worse than last years 5-11 record. I'd tend to agree, except Jeff Fisher is simply the best coach in the NFL right now. He'll take the now VERY young Titans to somewhere between 7-9 and 9-7. 12 players with more than 3 years NFL experience. Oy! Ah well, it's going to be a fun year not having to worry about winning the AFC championship. On the eve of another football season however, I do lament that the Colts/Titans or Jaguars/Titans rivalries I expected to materialize from the AFC South (along wtih the natural Texans/Titans) did not due to the pathetic performance of all teams minus the Colts. Heck, while I'm on this tangent why are the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC South? I mean, I like being able to zip up to Indy to catch the Titans, but it just doesn't make any sense. If you're going to realign, do it right. Put Indy in the AFC North and move the freakin' Dolphins to the AFC South. WHEW. That's it. Football has driven me to drinking. This is due in no small part to the OSU Buckeyes and their uncanny ability to turn every single game into a last play decision. Ah well. Go Titans, Buckeyes, Irish, and Crusaders!

Go Big Moe Blog
I've started another blog at GoBigMoe. I'm actually hoping to have several contributors to this eventually. Maybe the massive amount of traffic (nearly destroying the very fabric and fiber of the internet backbone) that Chuckoblog generates will help kick it off.
I'm Baaaaack...
Yep, that's a threat AND a promise. Or something. Anyway, not only am I back, but high school football is back as well. This year, the mighty Moeller Crusaders appear poised to challenge for the state title for the first time since 1997. Colerain enters the season as the odds-on favorite again, but I think there will be considerably more parity this year. So far, the best general forums I've found for Ohio high school sports are here. Other sites are relatively lame or charge a ridiculous fee to join, which just doesn't fly for the average HS sports fan.

Schmidt Wins!!!
Jean Schmidt pulled out a narrow victory (52% to 48%) against Paul "George W. Bush is a SOB" Hackett tonight in the Ohio 2nd Congressional District race to replace Rob Portman. There were 2 probable reasons the vote was so close: Republican turnout was particularly low (likely apathy due to assumed victory, Portman had won with about 70% of the vote each time he had run and Bush recieved about 75% in the most recent election), and there were several levies on various ballots around the district. Regardless, congratulations Jean on a well won victory!
