WednesDay in Football

The powers that be at Notre Dame have decided to wait until the middle of next season to fire Charlie Weis. That's right, everybody's favorite insufferably arrogant fat man is back for 2009!

Tim Tebow, Sam Bradford, Colt McCoy, Graham Harrell, and Michael Crabtree are finalists for the Walter Camp Football Foundation's Player of the Year award. Reading over Camp's contributions to the game ("...known as 'The Father of American Football,' ...[t]he former Yale athlete and football coach is also credited with developing play from scrimmage, set plays and the limit of 11 players per side") kind of makes you wonder how it was played before....

I hope Georgia Tech fans weren't looking forward to a trip to the Yellow Jackets' bowl game, because they accepted an invitation to the Chick-fil-A Bowl at the Georgia Dome. Which is, like, two miles from their home field.

The Seahawks put center Chris Spencer on injured reserve. And guard Mike Wahle might end up on IR, too. Wahle would bring the Seahawks IR list to twelve which sounds like a lot, but apparently isn't.

The NFL is going to show Thursday's Oakland/San Diego game in 3-D to a bunch of muckety-mucks. With the way the Raiders and Chargers have been playing, the attendees are lucky the games not being broadcast in Smell-O-Vision, am I right, folks? I'll be here all week.

Pacman is back, man. The NFL's Dennis the Menace (with, you know, getting strip club bouncers paralyzed as his "annoying Mr. Wilson" schtick) is back on Dallas's 53-man roster.

Thanks, but no thanks.
