Pinch hitting

I’m doing the pigskin picks this week. Joe Williams and I are pinch hitting for Mark Heiman and Dave Hanneman this week.

You wouldn’t believe how many people take those picks so seriously. Hey they are all in fun and no hard feelngs are intended.

I can’t believe we didn’t get any feedback on the 2006 football tab. Anyone look at it? How does it compare to other tabs that you might have seen? Actually I took a drive Thursday and picked up about 15 or so high school football tabs from other newspapers throughout NW Ohio. I don’t know if ours was the best but it was the biggest.

We already got some good ideas for things to add to our tab from looking at some other ones. Hopefully next year;s will be even better.

Well it looks like we will have some Big Ben stories in next week’s Pro Football Tab. After a month of trying to track him down, Roethlisberger finally returned a phone cal from our own Dave Hanneman. Luckily Dave took the Courier cell phone on his family outing and Ben called.

Tomorrow I’ll share the pigskin picks and notes on this weekend’s games.

    A comment on the football preview:

    Was the Pandora picture of a football player fillig out his picture form really the best picture you could come up with. No love to the Rockets.

    Yeah I know pretty weak huh? I do have to admit it. You're right there wasn't much love for the Rockets.

    But I do have to tell you getting a roster from them was like cutting out a wisdom tooth. Much pain and agony and blood was shed.

    Hopefully PG can keep winning and get a little more love in the newspaper. If you are a Rocket fan you have to be excited by last week's win and a good young group of players coming up.

    With a head coach who is driving 2 hours both ways everyday for practice I can understand how hard it would be to get a roster. And heaven forbidd the AD lift a finger to help anyone out. That would almost be like work for him.
