What Would Buddy Do?
Good to know that the Assyrians were rooting for the Eagles

Big announcement: BountyBowl is live on location this week. A trip to Dallas for the game? Well, not exactly. The day job has me in Merry Old Ingerland for the week, which is a lot like Dallas, only the accents aren’t as silly and the teeth are more attentively cared for.

It’s been a lovely trip so far, and has included a stop at the British Museum, where I learned that the Assyrians used carvings of scary Eagle gods to frighten off their enemies. Also, they have a Rosetta Stone. You have to hand to the Brits for bringing so many cool old antiquities back to London where they belong!

If there’s a downside to a week in the UK, it’s that Monday Night Football is actually Tuesday Morning Football. That is, kickoff is 1:30 in the a.m. In the interest of not being completely terrible at my job the following day, it looks like I’ll be watching on slight tape delay Tuesday morning rather than staying up all night for the game. Luckily the good folks at Yahoo have a deal where they stream the games online outside of North America.

Note that this is the second time in a year I’ll be watching MNF from London; had the same deal last year for the Redskins game. Funny that.
