+ Very deservedly, George Hincapie (Lance's main man) was named South Carolina Professional Athlete of the Year by The State newspaper. So cool!
+ Not too smart of me: I didn't even think that when Brad Childress came over from the Eagles he'd bring the West Coast Offense. I'm a little ambivalent about that. Seems like almost everybody's got it. I'm more interested in Brad bringing Andy Reid's system and class to the Vikes.
+ Also re: the Vikings, this article talks about the new owners being aggressive in their hiring of Childress. For my part, I welcome owners who are aggressive and willing to spend some money to win, not just watching their bottom line and flying in from San Antonio, aye, Chris?
