1. The news that Greg Oden will probably be out for the season is really sad. He has been a guest on PTI a few times and he seems like someone you want to root for -- nice, down to earth, and smart. In retrospect, he's probably glad that he left college after a year, so at least he's being paid.
2. I dislike the New England Patriots as much as the next person, but I have a hard time getting worked up over the cheating scandal. I just don't see how videotaping what the other team does in public can be considered cheating. It seems like if you're not trying to figure out the other team's signals, you're not really trying to win.
It's possible that I'm missing some important nuance.
