Normally, I get no pleasure out of seeing the Eagles beat either Dick Vermeil or Herm Edwards, both of whom are great guys who bleed green. But yesterday's gutsy comeback win was sweet. You can't spot a team like the Chiefs 17 points, on the road, and win. Just can't do it.
In other, semi-related news, my heart goes out to Hugh Hewitt and other Tribe fans. In my experience, Indians and Cardinals fans are pretty much the best in baseball--smart, genteel, passionate. It's a shame this very nice and very young Cleveland team couldn't hold it together down the stretch.
But Indians fans: Courage! This is a young club and the important thing is that the organization has rebounded. In modern baseball, small-market teams are supposed to diminish into .400 ball once the core of players from their last generation pass on. This Indians team defied that logic. It couldn't happen to a better city.
