The Vikings need to remember who toppled the Seattle Seahawks a mere three weeks ago, and then be sure those guys show up to play in Dolphin Stadium. We can still do this, Vikes!

Even as I write, looking forward to a visit from the Detroit Lions next week, I see out of the corner of my eye that they are hanging by their fingernails (34-33) with about six minutes left in their final quarter against the Rams at St. Louis, hanging on to what would be their first win of the 2006 season. Gonna stop here and go see if the Rams can pull off what the Vikings couldn't quite manage against the Bills.

We have made a lot of off-season changes, including some daring picks in the NFL Draft and free-agent signings. We are getting better and better as we approach the 2006 season start. Can we build ourselves up enough to become a contender? We shall see.

In baseball today, Julian Tavares, known hot-head from the Boston Red Sox and Joey Gathright of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays got into an all out brawl over a close play at home plate in the eighth inning of their game today. Both players were ejected for participating in the shenanigans. I just have to ask why grown men are fighting over a spring game that doesn’t count anyway.

Without going to far into it, I wanted to talk a little about some comments by Paul Tagliabue on the demands of the Players Association. He has said that he feels the request does not take into account:
“…the reality of our league’s economics today. It is a very excessive and unrealistic demand.”
My take on it is that NFL players are paid the lowest amount per game of four major sports in this country. They wreck their bodies for a career that in reality last 3-4 years on average before they get injured or broken to play. I don’t think they are being excessive, I just think they are fighting for their right to a competitive wage increase.
