Hair of the Dog-10/29/08

Okay, I'm still running around like a crazy man right now but there's still time for a short post.

The Bucks lost their season opener to the Bulls 108-96. I didn't watch the end, but from what I saw it looked closer than that, due to some pretty pedestrian performances by both teams. Michael Redd had a very Michael Redd-like performance, scoring 30, but grabbing just 2 rebounds and taking some dumb shots. Bogut got into foul trouble early on an was a non-factor. Richard Jefferson was not the star we all hoped he'd be, scoring 15 points on 5/17fg and 4 rebounds. Also of interest is the fact that Charlie V. barely played and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute (can somebody come up with a nick-name for this guy?) barely sat down. Overall, the team looked rusty and when all was said and done, lost by double digits to a weak Bulls team. Not a good way to start off the season.

Packers DT Johnny Jolly has been indicted on felony drug charges. This can't be good. No word on whether that brings a suspension with it just yet. It sounds like he'll play against the Titans though. The loss of Jolly would be big as the Packers aren't particularly deep in the defensive tackle position. I guess it'd all be up to that guy from the Weigel, Carlson, Blau and Clemens commercial.

That's all I got for today. Two things. But hey, it's a slow news day and I have briefs to write. Now off to put my brilliance down on paper for the next 8 hours. And then find a Halloween costume. Any suggestions?

"It sounds like hill play against the Titans though"

that reads like something I could have wrote.

You would think that someone who always found time to point out missed periods and commas would proof read what he wrote.

You can call Luc Richard Mbah a Moute "The Prince" seeing as he really is one.
