New Orleans Update
Some people were looking for an update on the proposed trip to N'Orleans to rebuild homes then go to the Skins game down there next month. Our pal Scott is putting it together, and here's the latest info:
If you have decided you are seriously committed to going down to New Orleans to build homes, it is time to sign up!!! I am working with Melissa Manuselis of New Orleans Habitat to begin the group registration process and secure reservations at Camp Home the nights of December 12-14. In order to begin registration I need everyone to be in touch with me ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) and Melissa ( email@example.com ) to let us know you're ready to volunteer.
Once we have a finalized number and have made plans with Habitat, I will begin researching group rates for flights and hotels in New Orleans over the Weekend.
Once we have a set group, we can all begin marketing our Mission and soliciting donations for our cause.
Looking forward to an amazing experience,
Scott's website is redskinsnolamission.blogspot.com.
Randoms: Had one more depressing stat I could not get into a story over the weekend. Heard some complaints from a few readers that I was too hard on Brandon Lloyd in Sunday's article. We all remember how much heat David Patten was getting in the first half last season, when he was signed for a small fraction of what Lloyd would get a year later right? Consider: Lloyd through seven games has 11 grabs for 164, sans a TD. Patten through 7 games in 2005, before the knee surgery, had 19 catches for 193 yards ...
I heard somewhere once there was study done that said the music people listen to in their early 30s is what they will listen to most of the life, or at least of a similar ilk. What do you guys think? Anyone out there still listen to a lot of the stuff they rocked back in high school? I still like a lot of what I loved back then - Fishbone, Primus, Jane's Addiction, Public Enemy, NOFX, Bad Brains - and Bad Brains will always be in my heavy rotation, but I think whoever did that study might be on to something ...
Best line from the Parcells conference call was when he was asked about the constant speculation every year that THIS will be the year he retires. "Eventually they're going to be right, I know that."
