- So Clinton Portis mentioned on John Thompson’s radio show on ESPN980 that he has a second-degree MCL sprain, which is what prompted Coach Zorn’s 50/50 assessment yesterday. Portis held out hope of playing on Sunday night, but I was a bit unsettled to find that a second-degree MCL sprain is what knocked LaDainian Tomlinson out of the playoffs last season. Not entirely encouraging news there, to say the least.
- Fun fact about NBC4′s Dan Hellie: he has an excellent collection of colorful ties. He also has a lively tour of Chris Cooley’s house. I caught part of it when it was on the air, but it’s online as well for those of you out-of-market folks, and — as with so much else Cooley-related — it’s an amusing way to spend some time. (Hat tip to the Sports Bog for noticing the online version.)
- And, lastly a bit of shameless self-promotion: The Zone Blitz has, for some reason, an interview with me. So if you’re consumed by an overwhelming desire to know what books I’ve read lately, NOW IS YOUR TIME.
