My favorite bowl season headline thus far:

"Aztecs Pound Buffalo in Potato Bowl"

Still a little bit of magic in the FA Cup: Villa go down to Sheffield United, Leeds to Rochdale.

I was listening to Wednesday's game as the news kept coming in about Sheffield United's shocker. I wonder if you're allowed as a Wednesday fan to be happy about that upset, since these fan bases are generally Crazy Bama Mom about each other.

Frank Reich and the Buffalo Bills say "Not a bad comeback, kid."

Well, that was a comeback. And a war of attrition in the one indoor game of the four.

You'd be more happy about Leeds getting beaten. Wednesday have a replay, but there's still the chance of a Sheffield derby in the fourth round.

It's been the highlight of the season at Hillsborough.

Filled out a Boston Celtics season ticket holder survey on line recently. In it I indicated that I went back to about the 1952-1953 season in my fandom. Last night at the game one of the season ticket liaison reps came by my seat with a thank you gift. It was a montage of 4 black-and-white photographs of Celtics stars from the '50s and '60s. Among them was a photo taken at the Cincinnati Gardens around 1966 showing Boston's Tom "Satch" Sanders going up for a layup. What's great about the picture is the inclusion in the frame of the Royals' Jerry Lucas and Tom Hawkins, both greats of the game. It made my night.

You should have indicated you started following the team in the late '90s: they would have added you to the bench as the 12th man.
