Random Tuesday

Random Tuesday

Should be pretty quiet out here today with no practice. Not expecting much from The Park today ... Taylor Jacobs looks like he is slipping into oblivion on The Left Coast. Dressed for the first two games with San Fran, did not catch a ball, and was inactive for Week 3. Wonder if he will make it through the season out there. Mike Rumph hasn't been great, but has been serviceable the last few weeks. Given the abundance of receivers here, have to say Skins probably got the best of that trade ... Wondering if anyone else caught the latest promotion at Six Flags (and, no, it's not two-for-one admittance to any patron who converts to Scientology, but that might be coming if this is any indication. Here's a little something-something that moved on the AP wire recently:

GURNEE, Ill. - Why wait in line when you can just eat a cockroach?
That's the question Six Flags Great America is asking its thrill seekers during its Halloween-themed FrightFest. The amusement park is daring customers to eat a live Madagascar hissing cockroach in exchange for unlimited line-jumping privileges.

The promotion, which has Lake County Health Department officials shaking their heads, starts Oct. 7.
Anyone who chows down the entire 2- to 3-inch horned cockroach -- a feat reminiscent of TV reality shows -- gets a pass for four people to cut to the front of ride lines through Oct. 29.Park officials insist it's safe to eat the crunchy critters, but health officials are cautioning participants. Consuming live roaches might increase risks of gastrointestinal illness and allergies, according to Bill Mays, Lake County Health Department's community health inspector.

Sounds like good clean family fun. Do you think The Snyder and Too Crazy Tom Cruise indulged on a few bugs during their recent pilgrimage To Six Flags to test for any side effects?
