Okay, so today wasn’t the best day for the Eagles. Sure, Kevin Kolb was surprisingly decent in relief of Donovan McNabb - up until giving up a 97 yard TAINT to Darren Sharper to finish the game -going 31-51 for 391 yards and 2 TDs. But Drew Brees is the best quarterback in the NFL right now, and he absolutely scorched the Eagles defense, rendering all offensive effort wasted for Philly. And though Brian Westbrook had a pedestrian 64 yards from scrimmage, he is eligible to take home one hell of a prize.

HELLO! The woman holding the sign seems a little ehh, but on the right? Thumbs up indeed, ma’am, and if you’ve also got a thing for bloggers with receding hairlines… call me.
As for the rest of the early games, the NFL is weird. Read more…

As we all know, cougars are indestructible — Demi Moore is still pretty hot, and just who brought back those American journalists from North Korean captivity? My point exactly. But are cougars powerful enough to counter the terrible effects of a moribund U.S. economy? At Del Mar Racetrack near San Diego, they are indeed.
At Del Mar, track attendance is actually up this year, thanks in no small portion to events such as the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club’s Miss Cougar 2009 competition. Here’s Rosie Goldstein, this year’s winner. Del Mar also features half-priced hot dogs and plush pony toys on most days, but I had a long night last night and I’m too weary to put together a humorous sexual connotation right now. You feel free, though.
It’s pretty good to be David Wright these days. He’s got millions of dollars, Mets fans love him, and he never has to deal with being all over the back page of the POST and DAILY NEWS because of A-Rod and Derek Jeter.
He has also apparently caught the eye of the newly-single Jennifer Aniston, who recently broke up with John Mayer. I mean, if a British tabloid called NOW says she’s interested, it must be true, right? According to Jen’s “friend” (the ‘Deep Throat’ of the gossip world), she has become intrigued with the idea of dating an athlete ever since seeing the “passionate” relationship between A-Rod and Madonna. Yuck.
Now that Madonna and Guy Ritchie have decided to get divorced, she and also-newly-single Alex Rodriguez are finally free to go public with their creepy (alleged) love affair. It’s kinda like the Joe DiMaggio-Marilyn Monroe romance, just more cougar-y and a lot less clutch.
FOX NEWS reports that A-Rod has been secretly subletting an apartment in New York’s Time Warner Center for some time now, and that Madge has been a frequent guest to the building. Now A-Rod is supposedly diving head-first into the whole Kabbalah thing, and the religion stands to get about $27.5 million of Steinbrenner’s money, if you believe Jerry Hall.
