One of those pre-season football articles predicted that the Caroline Panthers might suffer some mid-season pressure to go undefeated. Guess what? The pressure is off. The Panthers were crushed by the Falcons.
  • The Falcons' defense held Carolina to 215 yards of total offense.

"Oops. Hey, coach, can I reconsider that retirement?"
  • Favre turns in his worst performance since "There's Something About Mary." No TDs, 2 picks, finishing on the wrong end of a 26-0 shellacking. It's gonna be a long year for the cheeseheads.

Bill Maher: New Rules, September 8
  • I was disappointed with this. I usually find Maher very funny and incisive, but he's now getting into a level of Bush-bashing which is not funny at all, just negative for the sake of being negative. I don't much care who ya make fun of, right or left, but it's gotta be funny, not just juvenile ranting.

Weekend Box Office Results for September 8-10, 2006
  • Football 7, Movies 0.
  • Egad! What a disaster. The worst weekend of this year had been $77 million. The worst of last year was $74 million. This weekend was $54 million. It was the worst weekend since September 5-7, 2003, when the box office was topped by Dickie Roberts, Child Star.
  • The highest grosser was the critically reviled The Covenant, and that failed to crack the $10 million mark. Moreover, it was avoided by its target audience. It's aimed at the WB female tweener market, but 75% of ticket sales went to people over 18.
  • Every single film fell below expectations.
