Phillip Daniels: King of the iPod

Key numbers as we count down the days until I'm allowed to stop driving to Ashburn every day (3):

40,000: The number of songs Phillip Daniels has downloaded. This according to the Fredericksburg Free-Lance Star's Adam Himmelsomething, who reports that Daniels fixes up the iPods of all his messy teammates. But it doesn't say what kind of music Daniels listens to, nor does it say what he thinks about B. Lloyd's musical career.

III: The number of Burl Tolers out there, including the Skins backup backup backup WR. His grandfather was a longtime NFL official; I've been meaning to ask for him to spin the tale of grandpa's greatest calls.

Burl Toler III (John McDonnell - TWP).

17: The number of pounds Todd Wade lost in one day, according to the Washington Times. I've heard of heavy sweating, but 29 pounds in two consecutive days? That's like dropping a rabbit or something. At that rate, he would have shed roughly the weight of Daniel Snyder within one week. Remarkable. You could chop off one of my arms and I'm not sure I would lose 17 pounds.

Oh, and it's nice to see that Wade's teammates are calling him "Lurch."

24: Yard touchdown pass thrown by potential practice squad QB and Bog superstar Jordan Palmer, who dashed off this tale after the game:

When he was waiting for the NFL draft, Jordan Palmer resorted to a line from the "Seinfeld" television show when asked what he did for a living.

"A girl would come up to me in a bar and say, 'I hear you're getting ready for the NFL. What do you do?' And I would say, 'Actually, I'm unemployed and currently living with my parents,'" Palmer said, recalling one of the signature lines of George Costanza of "Seinfeld." "It was true. I'd just finished college, and I was living with my parents."

In the basement? Please, say it's so.
