Out of the Blue

Today has the funniest label in the NFL's protracted run up to the Super Bowl, as it is officially "media day." Anyone who has allowed themselves to be exposed to the hype in this two-week buildup to the big game (and I don't blame anyone for trying to avoid it), knows that every one of the 14 days, including Super Bowl Sunday itself, is a full-on media day. Anyway, the fun part about today is how the foreign press gets involved, as there are always some wonderfully off-the-wall questions translated from overseas reporters who do not actually follow the sport.

I have a Apple question. Helping a friend move from an apt to a house and he came across a Ipod he no longer uses (just a regular non-touch 80gb version). It has quite a bit of music on it, which I'd like to keep, yet set the Ipod up for my Itunes type stuff. What can I do? I'm a Apple noob so bare with me.

No clue, you can't just connect it to a PC and treat it like a flash drive?

HAHAHAHAHA no. That is why they suck. Apple DRM.

It's strange, I haven't gotten any of the hype. In fact, this is the only site I visit that even talks about it. But I don't have cable TV, and only listen to NPR, so maybe that's got something to do with it. I live in HI, and I even missed the pro-bowl hype somehow until it was over (I thought it was the week AFTER the superbowl).

That being said, I'm trying to arrange to visit a friend's house to watch it, having grown up in CT equidistant from Foxboro and Giant stadiums, and been to both teams' games when I was younger.

So what does the quarterback do when his team becomes the defense?

Thats easy, he gets all defensive & refuses to share his emotions.
