Luke Links: ESPN's "blogger" finally links to us!

Lukelinkslogo_medium

Someone recently reminded me that we are 45 days away from the start of training camp. This means we are, roughly, one month away from other teams starting camp, especially those teams playing in the Hall of Fame game. So, just another month or so. We can hold out, mates. We can hold out.

  • Peyton Manning spoke during a press conference for the Y Sports Dinner at the Winnipeg Convention Centre. That's in Canada, folks.
  • Coincidentally, the guy drafted after Peyton Manning in 1998 was also in Canada recently. However, unlike Peyton, this guy was wanted by the law. He was picked up at the Canadian border and hauled away in handcuffs.
  • I think we have a first folks: Paul Kuharsky at ESPN's AFC South "blog" linked to one of our stories. Of course, it wasn't to anything I wrote. Paul had to link to something shake n bake wrote. This, of course, has made me very jealous of shake n bake. It has also led me to think Paul just doesn't like me, personally. Maybe it's because I think his job title as an ESPN "blogger" is simply asinine. If he's a "blogger," I'm Shia LaBeouf's missing finger. But that's not a comment on Paul. He seems like a good guy. It's the people who gave him that title who suck. I hope Paul doesn't hate me personally for speaking what many of us already know and feel about the WWL.
  • 18to88 is wrong about special teams not being terribly important to winning football games. In fact, the argument borders on the "painfuly ignorant" category. I just have to point to the San Diego playoff game last year and it pretty much destroys everything 18to88 says. SD dominated Indy on special teams, and that domination offset Peyton torching SD's secondary (again) and Indy's pass rush feasting on Phillip Rivers.
  • Keith Bulluck is a classless turd. Always has been. But don't take my word for it. Take Bulluck's teammate Cortland Finnegan's word, because he seems to agree with me. However, it seems Keith is trying to atone for his past douchebaggery. He recently tried to make up for his 2008 regular season immaturity by saying the Steelers are the team to beat in 2009. These are, of course, the same Steelers Bulluck insulted on live TV last December. 
  • Unlike Keith Bulluck, Colts RB Mike Hart is not a classless jerk. And he is still very much a part of Michigan football.
  • John Oehser talks about the Colts blogosphere. I am mildly insulted I was listed second behind 18to88 considering I've blogged much longer than they have. John must now walk through the snow barefoot and kiss my ring for forgiveness.
  • A Patriots fan hearts Peyton Manning (Tip to peytonsthebest).
  • One of my favorite players ever (Dominic Rhodes) continues to show just how classy and cool he really is. Buffalo Bills fans are going to love him. He might be the best back on their team now. (Tip to Hitstick Killer).
  • John Oehser (after walking through the snow barefoot, kissing my ring, and begging my forgiveness) wrote a couple of articles on Joseph Addai and the offensive line.
  • And finally, Len Pasquarelli has re-surfaced at ESPN. You know the quality of real football content is crap at the WWL when you are actually glad Len Pasquarelli is back, writing articles about football and not focusing on whether Terrell Owens took a dump today. Len's article is about the Colts and how they replace linebackers year after year. It's a great read, and a sad, annoying reminder that ESPN's coverage of sports is very, very vapid. Maybe ESPN will let Len "blog."(Tip to ColtsFanNChiTown).
