I was planning to do a Transaction Wire today, but since there isn't much going on, here are a few more ramblings:

  • Packers sign Tim Couch. Couch, in theory, is a "mobile enough to get a pass off," make-things-happen kind of guy. Becoming Brett Favre's backup is probably the best thing that could have happened to him (of course, that all depends on you opinion of Favre). Three things can come of this; unfortunately for Couch, two are bad. 1) Brett Farve takes Couch under his wing, Couch learns well, and Couch finally lives up to his potential. 2) Once Favre retires, Couch tries to hard to actually be Brett Favre and remains a disappointment. 3) Couch does good, but Packers fans start to complain since he isn't Brett Favre. Rattle, Couch begins to lose it, and he must flee town once again.

  • Congrats to the Pistons. Believing that anything can happen, I actually gave them some chance to win the finals. Of course, I was also waiting for the Lakers to wake up and win 3 straight. Boy, it's been fun today watching all the "there's no way the Lakers can lose" 'experts' eat their words today.

  • Rumor has it that tOSU alum Bob Knight is interested in the vacant head coaching job. However, tOSU has yet to show interest in Knight (perhaps due to influence from Miles Brand in the Big Ten?). As a player, Knight helped lead tOSU to two championships back in the 1950s.

  • Finally, I'll point you to two articles from SportsPickle: "‘Playmakers’ DVD boxed set contains 14-Hour Baltimore Ravens documentary"; "Idiot on cell phone waving to camera told he’s an idiot by person he’s talking to on his cell phone." I'd also recommend checking out the Ponder This section.

  • Finally, if you get a chance, be sure to check out Coast to Coast Tickets. They've been gracious enough to offer a "link exchange" - basically, we'll each be advertising on the other's page.
