As America (and London) prepare for the NFL’s week eight schedule tomorrow, these are bleak times. I know that this isn’t a political or social venue, but I just wanted to fire off some quick words of appreciation for our beloved sport.

It has been some time since I have recorded my thoughts on this blog, and for now, I am back. You may be wondering why? What inspired me to come back to my computer and do this again. There are a couple of reasons and I’ll get to all of them.

Battle of the beatens! Bengals looked better vs the G-Men last week
Packers @ Bucs: Packers
Still haven't lost my trust in Rogers and Co. after there loss to the Boys. I'm interested to see how much the Bucs will throw this week

The Seahawks have finally won a game, and it was an impressive one. The Hawks rushed for 245 yards against the division rival Rams and dominated for the majority of the game on the way to a 37-13 win at home.The Rams offense was constantly out of sinc, and the Hawks defense stopped the big plays from beating them.

My apologies for missing last weeks action. I still made my picks, but did not have the time to post them for the world to see.
Chiefs @ Falcons - Falcons
Possibly the worst game you will ever watch (unless you include the WNBA playoffs this week)

Pretty simple recap on the season opener, the Redskins just failed miserably on offense. No big surprise there. Jason Campbell was decent at best stats wise, but he played an awful game. He failed to manage a comeback at the end, throwing too many short routes and check downs when the team desperately needed him to step up and move the ball. The running game was also surprisingly ineffective, rushing for only 84 yards (all by Clinton Portis).

I am glad it was July 11th. Having that free 7.11 oz slurpee was a blessing in the summer heat. Lets go over what has happened on 7/11.
Football: Brett Favre wants his release. This is an interesting story. I never put pen to paper on this, but I always maintained (as did Tony from PTI) that Favre would be back for the season. Favre wants to play, but the Packers want to move on. What to do, what to do? If I am Favre, the first teams I look at are Minnesota and Baltimore.

Major League Baseball’s all-star game is approaching and in all honesty, I am kind of excited. I like baseball’s all-star festivities, especially compared to the other main sports in the U.S. And if you don’t mind, I’m going to tell you why. Actually, what do I care if you mind?

Though they don't seem as devastating as the Soriano/Pujols loss I wrote about yesterday, two key players have gone down on two other teams today. Cleveland put Victor Martinez on the DL, while Seattle placed its once-reliable closer JJ Putz back on the DL, both with elbow injuries. And unlike Soriano's freak fracture, there were hints at undiagnosed problems with both Martinez and Putz.

This offseason has been a rocky one for many Seahawk fans. Some moves were great, some were.... well lets just leave it as not so great. Time is the only thing that will tell if this offseason was a productive one or not. Here are some of the moves I am buzzing about.

After 17 years as the Green Bay Packers quarterback, the legendary and future hall of famer 3 time MVP Brett Favre is set to retire.
"I know I can still play, but it's like I told my wife, I'm just tired mentally. I'm just tired," Favre, a three-time NFL MVP, told ESPN's Chris Mortensen in a voice mail message.

The Seahawks need a seam-splitting, pass-catching TE so Matt Hasselbeck can truly take advantage of the full range of mismatches the west coast system offers. After the Jerramy Stevens my-arms-are-too-long-to-catch-footballs-and-I-am-a-headcase bust, and the Marcus Pollard I-have-low-miles-but-they-left-me-in-the-garage-for-a-reason failure, their options are free agency, the draft, or... bust.

Young, homegrown talent played a significant part in the Red Sox title run last year led by Dustin Pedroia winning the Rookie of the Year and Jonathan Papelbon definitively closing out games. Clay Buchholz pitched a no hitter in his second major league start, Jacoby Ellsbury stepped in when he was needed and became a vital part of the offense, and Jon Lester got the win in the World Series clincher. All are expected to be key contributors to the team this season. However, this influx of talent from the minors has not left this cupboard bare as Boston’s farm system still ranks in Baseball America’s top 5. Here are some of the next big prospects to keep an eye on in camp this spring and follow their progress this summer.

I have never claimed to be an expert when it comes to predicting outcomes of football games, although last year I nearly predicted the exact final score of the Super Bowl while hitting on seven of my nine prop bets. (My prediction was 26-17, the final was 29-17.) For whatever reason I had a very good feel for that game. This year's Super Bowl, however, remains a mystery to me. Part of the reason I am having trouble getting a good feel for this game is that I am a bitter Jets fan and I can't stand either team. I'm finding it difficult to put my personal feelings aside and look at the game objectively. I think right now I am as close to objectivity as I am going to get, and with that being said, here is my official Super Bowl XLII prediction.
