If Kansas City and the Steelers both win out, Kansas City holds the tiebreaker and would get the #6 spot. The first five will go to Indy, Denver, Cincinnati, New England, and Jacksonville, probably in that order. More here.

Last night, Carey and I received the first bid on the pool room (layout). I'm going to briefly discuss it here so I can document my thoughts. I've haven't adjusted the bid price as I don't imagine any of the other contractors who have yet to put in their bids will see this entry. I [...]
I've created in OmniGraffle a mockup of the pool room. I've rounded things to the nearest foot, but otherwise the diagram should be reasonably accurate. I used OmniGraffle's gridding system and doubled the number of feet and divided by the grid size (8) to get a scale of 1 foot = 2/8 inch or 1 [...]
Hey look, you can buy $20 and get 10 free iTunes (or buy $50 and get 25 free). It's not quite "buy two get one free" but it works out to that for $20 and $50 purchases. And you can always send a gift certificate to yourself (I sent one to Carey - we buy [...]
Gee, someone really liked King Kong.
Yet another article at stillers.com points out why Bill Cowher should get his ass out of Pittsburgh: Bill Cowher's major positive impact on any team has been his motivating factor. But from the looks of the Monday Night Massacre at the hands of Indy and now getting stomped on at our home field from the [...]
In the game room, I'd like to have an audio system of some sort. Ideally, I imagine four speakers in the corners of the (roughly square) room should suffice, as I plan to have nothing but AM/FM, CD, and iTunes (via an AirPort Express) playing through the speakers. Unfortunately, most boom boxes seem to come [...]
And so ends the Steelers chances of making the playoffs today. Nice defense. Nice coaching. A few bad throws by Ben, but overall I have a hard time flagging him for playing poorly.
An article at stillers.com mentions "fireronzook.com." I was friends with some FL Gators fans while I lived in FL, and I can attest to their distaste for Ron Zook. My own distaste for Bill Cowher is an equal match, but the article linked above provides a nifty way of looking at it: So if we [...]
As anyone who knows me can tell you, I really like golf. I've also always liked pool but have really never had the time or opportunity to play it as much: it's not a high school sport, you pay every time you go typically (unlike a $330 junior membership at a country club), and you [...]
Given the fact that Ed Werder also agrees, and that the Colts could offer no comment to explain the existence of the microphones, I rate it as highly possible that the Indianapolis Colts cheat by artificially enhancing crowd noise. For the record, the Steelers still would have had their asses kicked, but come playoff time [...]
A friend of mine was using Netflix but has switched to Blockbuster's rental service. For those who have tried both, which do you like and why? I don't see much difference at face value: both are $17.99 for 3-at-a-time rentals.
Tomorrow, Carey and I are going to do something we should have done awhile back: get set up with the Millcreek teacher's credit union. We'll have her checks direct deposited in there and essentially attempt to pretend that we're a single-income family (mine). Then, if we build the game room, we'll have a credit union [...]
Die, Bill Cowher, die. Take the majority of the rest of the coaching staff with you.
I'm not sure why I ever thought that I could participate in Mario Kartfest 2K5 - the Steelers play Monday Night Football tonight. Duh! Sorry. I'll catch the next one, though.
