Before I start let me say that there are many fumbles in regard to the Ray Rice situation (such as Roger Goodell and the Baltimore Ravens' handling of it), but I want to focus on Monday's overreaction to the Ray Rice incident and how it reflects poorly on us as people.
Finally. The Rock has come back - I mean football has come back to my Sunday afternoon programming (plus Sunday evening/night and Monday night).
Week 1 of Southeastern Conference football is in the books. I'm not sure what actual books Week 1 is in, but I'm confident that the games played last week are, in fact, in some books somewhere. If you find the books, please let me know. I'd like to take a gander at them.
