    The question is...will my Cowboys be a better team without Tank Johnson, Terrell Owens and Adam Jones.....or just can actually play better with less talent than before. The folks seem to think we have no heart on defense. Who knows?

    In my neighborhood everyone is stuck on the question of Tom Brady's return from knee surgery. There were complications in rehab. Can he return to his former level? Should they have dealt away Cassel? It's great for the radio sports talk guys. However, right now I'm just interested in knowing whether the women's professional soccer league (it's the Boston Breakers, guys) will catch on.

    Once again, it's a good time to be a Boston sports fan. The World Series and the Superbowl in the same year? Sure, why not!

    Who wants to bet on the Cleveland Browns making it to the playoffs this year?

    Well, the Red Sox certainly made their half of that look easy. 4-1

    I expected their ultimately losing that 18 inning all-nighter game to throw them off stride, but it didn't. They just came back on short rest and a depleted bullpen and kept going.

    The Patriots get to beat up the Bills tonight. Soon I'll get to start talking about the Celtics too. I'm expecting they'll have a good year too.

    I'd love to see that Ted. It's possible, I guess.

    But realistically, the Browns have just gone from worst team in the NFL to an average middling team. But that's very good progress, considering.

    And while they have been doing it, they have become one of the most fun teams to watch. Fans all around the country are taking notice and people everywhere want to tune in to Browns games. (Everyone loves cheering for the underdog.) Patrick Mahomes has done wonders for the Browns, the whole team seems to take heart when he's out there and everyone plays better.

    But you guys won't be able to hold any more "perfect-season" parades after 0-16 seasons.

    Oops, bad mistake. I got your Browns phenom mixed up with KC's phenom. I meant Baker Mayfield.

    The Browns actually had a few championship seasons in pre-Super Bowl days.

    They were good way back then. I seem to remember them playing pretty well right before they were hijacked to Baltimore too.

    Your Cavs seem to be imploding now that LaBron's left for LA, but your Indians always seem to be MLB post-season contenders.

    Yep, they really have not been the same since the five year hiatus.

    I know that you're a History buff but that's sorta pre-history, isn't it?

    Be careful there, I'm not a fossil yet. Cleveland's last championship was in 1964 and I materialized on this planet in 1962.

    Well the Patriots play the Packers tomorrow night and all the talk around here is about the Aaron Rogers v. Tom Brady matchup. It should be a fun game to watch.

    Actually, the New Orleans Saints won the Super Bowl a few years ago (oh, well, its been sometime since I moved back to Ohio, so sometime since 2001). I remember watching the game at a sports bar in Ottawa County Ohio. I ran short of money and the bar proprietress made me a deal that she would keep me in free Diet Pepsi til the end of the game if I would help her out by folding pizza boxes. When the Saints barely won the game at the last few seconds, I swore a blue streak because I could not believe that the Saints who were basically loveable losers in my formative years (to be read: the 1970s) had actually won the Super Bowl. Other people in the bar wondered whether I had lost big money betting on that Super Bowl. Not. I'se too po' to risk too much money on gambling.

    Doug Flutie of Boston College, who threw that justly famous Hail Mary pass in 1984 (I think)? Where did Flutie play pro ball? I have half a recollection that it was in the Canadian Football League.

    Which team got ripped off with and renamed the Las Vegas whatevers?

    Were the Houston O ilers any good back in the days before they got ripped off with and renamed the Tennessee Titans? Are the newfangled team known as the Houston Texans any good? How long of a time lapse occurred between the Houston Oilers and the Houston Texans?
