So long, Al

R.I.P. Al Davis. Whatever you thought of the man, the No Fun League just got a little more boring.

Apparently Davis set up his will to keep control of the Raiders in his family. Well, actually that was Al’s backup plan. His real intent was to live forever.

Not to say Al Davis was a bit of a control freak. But in his will wonder how many years ahead he left instructions and choices for Raiders draft picks?

As my friend Ed says “Not a good week for men in black.”

Oklahoma Sooners 55 – Texas Longhorns 17. This could be the most embarrassing thing to happen to Texas football for a while. Especially since the Dallas Cowboys have a bye week.

So for all their money, the Yankees ended up this year without winning it all, and in most of the country, getting no love. Wonder if they got a congratulatory call from Mitt Romney.

Robert Jeffress, the pastor who introduced Rick Perry to the “Values Voters Summit” said that Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith is “a cult.” Several cults responded “Hey, don’t accuse us of including Mormons.”

Roger Williams, who died today at the age of 87, played for nine presidents, and still has the the best-selling piano record of all time, his 1955 “Autumn Leaves.” Many younger people these days, however, heard of his death and wonder who Williams was. And still others wonder “what’s a record?”

Stanford and Andrew Luck put on a clinic Saturday against Colorado. Which should impress Heismann and BCS voters. Both of them who are actually watching the game. College Football ten Headlines late Saturday night: “No. 14 NU rallies from 21 down – McCarron, No. 2 Tide trip Vandy – No. 1 Tigers trump No. 17 Gators -No. 3 OU rips No. 11 Texas 55-17 -No. 8 Clemson wins; Boyd hurt -No. 13 Ga. Tech improves to 6-0 – Wake Forest topples No. 23 FSU -No. 18 South Carolina dumps UK – Thomas’ late TD rescues Hokies – No. 24 Aggies outslug Red Raiders 45-40.”

And No. 7 Stanford wonders why they keep winning and dropping in the polls.

How the mighty have fallen. Headline today on – “Tiger makes cut at”

Caltech’s water polo team snapped their nine year and one day losing streak today against the Master’s College. Although to give them credit, Caltech players during that stretch did at least avoid drowning.

Another MLB playoff game, another late-night rain delay. What a shame that baseball isn’t a game that can be played during the daytime.

The NBA has already cancelled meaningless pre-season games. But Monday is David Stern’s deadline for the first two weeks of the regular season. And the two sides have announced they will not be meeting by then. Which means now the league will start cancelling meaningless regular season games.
