I see at boston.com that Mr. Brady and Mr. Moss did not go to practice yesterday and yet they do not say why. I thought it was strange to report this without an explanation. Does anyone in this group know why this would be? I also read an article there suggesting that perhaps the Colts and Saints should rest some of their players for the Super Bowl rather than trying be undefeated. It is an interesting dilemma. I thought perhaps some members of the group might have an opinion since our Patriots were in this same position not too long ago. I myself would rest my players, I think. Going undefeated may be a great honor, but it doesn't seem as important as winning a Super Bowl. Does anyone agree with this strategy?
In a another story, I see that Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chris Henry
died from falling out of a moving pickup truck driven by his fiancee. They say it was part of a domestic dispute. This is very sad. He was only 26 years old. I fell out of the back of my own pick-up truck once when my brothers were driving and helping me move into my house. I was sitting on the edge when they made a sharp turn at a high speed and I landed on my head and was made unconscious and was in need of 17 stitches. I would have been hurt even more if not for my turban softening the blow a little. It is very dangerous back there, let me tell you. I have also seen parents driving with children seating in the bed of their pickup and romping about and this should not be allowed by law. You never know what a child will do. We should all learn from this.
