The NFL franchise that brought you the bag heads is now 11 and 0 after whipping the New England Patriots 38-17. Here are a few random notes and slightly modified reflections first posted at theAdrastos Virtual Cafe:
- I admit to being gobsmacked that
the game was such a rout. I thought the Pats would win. I would still
prefer that the Saints lose a regular season game: it’s hard to go
19-0. Just ask Bill Frakking Belichick.

Dodger reliever Terry Forster who David Letterman called “a fat tub of

wish the teevee people would show the Wiseman brothers in their jump
suits just once. I want to seeMr. Clio andDillyberto in HD. (The Wisemans are NOLA bloggers and bon vivants. They also wear shrimp boots and hard hats to home games. They’re a stitch.)
