DenverBroncos.com is having a sale where all Replica Jerseys are $50. I like the replicas better because they wear better and I can play football in them where I'd be hating myself for playing in a $200 authentic jersey. My blue John Lynch jersey has seen better days and is ready to be retired. The only question is what should I wear next. Choices are:
a) Champ Bailey (Home Blue)
b) John Lynch (Away White)
c) Champ Bailey (Away White)
d) John Lynch (Alternate Orange)
e) Champ Bailey (Alternate Orange)
Things to know:
1) My last name is Lynch
2) I've never owned a white Bronco jersey (not my most flattering color but I am in better shape than I have been in a while)
3) Champ Bailey is the best player on the Broncos and we all know I love '24' but something about how the name "Bailey" on a jersey with such a low number looks is keeping me from pulling the trigger automatically
4) The Broncos didn't wear the Alternate Orange jerseys at all last season.
Virginia Tech Shooting
Paul and Scott have covered yesterday's shooting massacre at Virginia Tech better than I can.
Obviously I liked it better when all I knew Virginia Tech for were the Vick brothers, running up the score on Syracuse, and Frank Beamer's lollipop accusation.
The assailant has been identified. Ironic that I had just talked to Josh about moving from Virginia.
I prefer to wait for a motive, before I listen to any cries for more gun control. When what may be needed is a cry for more crazy guy control.
I won't wait for a motive to make a cry for no more Michael Moore movies.
I also heard on the radio here that if all students were allowed to carry guns, this wouldn't have happened. Ummm no. More students would be killing each other over dumber shit like making top 8's on Myspace or Facebook.
Like Columbine, this incident is an unthinkable tragedy and an act of unthinkable malice by someone who suffered the fate they deserved. What the lessons of this will or won't be, remains to be seen. My condolensces to the families of the victims.

Baked Beans: The Boston Marathon and Patriots Day
Today is the running of the 111th Boston Marathon. This race has lost relevance nationwide as American runners have lost relevance when it comes to any chance of winning the race. In Boston and New England however it is covered ad nauseum by every major news channel in the city providing footage from all points of the race. Friends and acquaintences run the race, sometimes as a means to raise money for charity, most of the time as a personal challenge. While there won't be many today, usually spectators line the Marathon route to cheer on (or heckle) oncoming runners.
Of course the Marathon always falls on a much more interesting day, Patriots Day in Massachusetts. Patriots Day commemorates the Battles of Lexington and Concord which started the Revolutionary War. It is the biggest blowoff holiday in this country. Schools, State Offices, and some businesses along the Marathon route close and leave their employees free to throw parties and drink all day during the Marathon. When I was little my parents would take me out of school (New Hampshire still has school) to watch the Lexington Patriots Day Parade and battle reenactment. My senior year in high school a friend of my dad fed me jello shots in his Beacon Street apartment.
Also the Red Sox are scheduled to play today at 10:05am, the only morning start time on the entire MLB schedule. Today they are playing the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Meaning their fans will need an explanation as to why they had to wake up at 7am to watch their team.
It's PATRIOTS DAY! Duh!
