Just a Little Random
12 is the Magic Number.
Great series. I hope the next one is just as exciting (and blessed with the same happy ending for Avs fans).
Congratulations to Danica.
MacUpdate Promo looks pretty good.
Oprah is a pusher.
Anyway, where my admiration stops is right at the edge of her social and political commentary--commentary that leans less on thinking and more on feeling. That is doubly so when she’s pushing a self-help title of the nature of The Secret. Her new business venture with Eckhart Tolle, though, makes her seem more like a huckster than a reputable businessperson.
Disappointing isn’t a big enough word.

Colin McRae Has Died
Sad news for anyone who follows motorsports around the world: the former World Rally Champion Colin McRae has died along with three others, including his son, in a helicopter crash.
He was a talented, if controversial, driver. Many thought that he was overly aggressive or even reckless; all I know is that watching film of him drive was thrilling.
Sad news for fans and truly tragic news for his loved ones.

Big Fine for Belichick (Updated)
Patriots’ head coach Bill Belichick will be paying a half million dollar fine for his part in the team’s spying scandal--and that’s not the only penalty that will be paid by the team.
I don’t have a strong opinion about the appropriateness of the fines and penalties--I have no idea how serious or how important the spying was to any of the Patriots’ victories. The funniest part of the whole scandal is that, irritating as he is, Belichick really is a brilliant coach and the Patriots have had phenomenal talent for years. I doubt they needed to cheat to win.
Anyway, the penalty does seem on the steep side. Until you see what the FIA did to McLaren in their own spy scandal today.
One hundred million dollars.
For the record, I’m pretty sure the Patriots will be giving up that first round draft pick at the end of the year, too. If they don’t make the playoffs, I’ll be shocked.
Update: Kindly linked by Nathan who is one of many voices who think that the Patriots got off a bit light.
