quickie

I just got back from a short trip out West to Habbiniyah and al-Taqaddam (TQ) , so I will write a better update tomorrow. However, I wanted to make a quick comment regarding football this Sunday. 1st - I'm not able to watch the Eagles this week, so feel free to bet accordingly. 2nd - listen to the announcers. It's one of my favorite things to do. In particular, listen to the awful statistics they use freely throughout the game. Comments like, "We should have expected this, Troy. Donovan McNabb has a passer rating of 58.6 in home games played during November that start after 4pm." Huh!? At what point did the producer decide that would be a good, relevant stat to throw out there during the broadcast? I wonder what the network statisticians make, and how I could go about getting that job. Then I could be the one giving the announcers awesome stats like, Brian Westbrook's yard per carry average in the 3rd quarter of away games when the temperature is below 45 degrees.

Ok, so this post had nothing to do with Iraq or my life here. I never promised to stay on track all the time. I will post some pictures from my latest road trip, though, so check out the link on the right if you're interested!

Given the outcome of the Eagles game on Sunday, are you sure you did not catch the end of the game?

Actually, I was able to watch bits of live coverage, which I am fairly sure lead to their demise . . .
