TCCLs: Special Halloween Edition

Happy Halloween. I'll try not to make these too scary.

100 TCCLs/-22 TCCLs - Carlos Rogers/Carlos Rogers's hands
He is having a Pro Bowl season, but without the stats to back it up (let's face it, high interception totals often sway this popularity contest), he might end up short despite shadowing and neutralizing stud receivers every week. Rogers dropped another gimme pick last week. With better opponents ahead, a little stick 'em would go a long way.

33.4 TCCLs - Joe Bugel
The Skins are running the ball nearly 34 times a game - and are on pace for their most carries as a team since 1991 - with Bugel the main man behind most of the blocking schemes each week. Boss Hog has the Skins' road grading opponents in what has been the most trying season of his life, for sure.

26 TCCLs: The Wrath of Zorn.
No one is spared. First Durant Brooks, then Clinton Portis, then the first-slamming press conference. Who's next? Cerrato? I wouldn't cross the Z-Man. I say good for him for dealing with things in the moment, playing no favorites, and then immediately giving Portis a pick-me-up by feeding him the ball five times in the next six plays.

5 TCCLs - Chris Horton.
The rookie safety is back and feeling good, even going so far as to remove the tape boundary some veterans had placed on the floor around his locker to let him know where he stood. Could be a possible defensive rookie of the year candidate, and by far the star of the draft class in the first half.

-31 TCCLS - Me.
There was nothing special about these at all. Trick or Treat.

-1,000 TCCLs - Smashing pumpkins.
Is it just me, or does Halloween feel a little less special when your young daugher spends the better part of every day in a Cinderella, TInkerbell, Belle, Aurora, Sleeping Beauty or Jasmine dress (I think that's all of them; we haven't sprung for Pocahontas yet)? I mean, with these Disney stores all over the place and the dresses everywhere, it's like every day is costume day. Chloe is going out as Dorothy tonight, and she loves "The Wizard of Oz," but I've seen her run around in that thing all year long. She loves Halloween and has made me tell her Halloween stories before bed for like the last six months, but still, there seems to be no way to escape the siren call of Disney.

speaking of the Wrath of Zorn,

you guys know that Zorn is the German word for wrath?

I do worry about the CL inflation. I mean, Tom's in good shape for his age, but more than 12 would leave a vomiting London Fletcher shot for the day.

The TCCL's read like a flamboyant sports article in a gay newspaper.

Are you sure it's not YOU that is wearing the Tinkerbell outfit, JLC?

Seriously, Tom Cruise Couch Leaps?!

I would LOVE to see Joe Bugel step to the podium and receive 33.4 Couch Leaps from Tom Cruise!

It's people like JLC that made pussification a word!
