5 things I think
1. The Reds drew 12,000 to a game this week. The first-place Cincinnati Reds, in the city where pro baseball was born, drew 12,000 to a game. All I can figure is the economy is so bad that sports fans in the city could only pay to support one team, and the Bengals seemed like the best bet for a winner when families were making out there budgets.

2. Speaking of the Bengals, Chad Ochocinco has a forgettable game Sunday against the Patriots, the Cincinnati gets smoked, and Chad is... on WWE Raw the next night. I seriously question his commitment to winning.

3. Speaking of WWE, Linda McMahon has closed the gap in the Connecticut Senate race. I'm a lifelong conservative, and 99 times out of 100, Republicans better represent my views. But this is one case where I'd vote Democrat. In the business McMahon is in, too many young men and women have died because they felt pressure to artificially enhance their bodies or because the lifestyle of a wrestler was too difficult for them to stay clean. McMahon and her husband don't hold all the blame for this, but they hold enough of it so that McMahon should not be elected senator.

4. Jake Delhomme was really hurt Sunday. If he can't play, it'll be another Cleveland season -- never sure who your quarterback is from week to week.

5. Teams have had seasons wrecked by poor special teams play. Ohio State fans need to keep that in mind.
