more mind-bending fun from the Yahoo News page.

i tried to get a screen shot of the Yahoo homepage just now, because it is blowing my mind. but apparently the laptop's print screen function is not in the mood to, you know, function, so i'll have to recreate it for you. the only really relevant portion of the homepage is the news section, where the following two headlines hold the top two slots:

Bush Asserts U.S. Is Winning Iraq War
Analysis: Bush Drops Rosy Iraq Scenarios


and if that weren't enough to knock my brain sideways, lovie smith pulled kyle orton in the third quarter, while the bears were winning 6-3, and put in rex grossman. where did this come from? what's going on?? now, i am happy about rex's potential return as much as the next gal, but putting him in during the third quarter, while we're winning? what's the rationale? granted, we're up 16-3 now, and rex is doing well, but i think it's kinda suspect. kyle orton has worked hard to keep this team in the hunt all season, and while he hasn't been spectacular, he's done the job. is it fair to pull him? i don't really think so.

i have much thinking to do this evening, in order to sort all of this out. unfortunately, the boondocks is on, so it'll have to wait another half hour.

I was also floored to see Rex in there. But we won and it looked like the offense was doing better under him. I don't care who is QB, just as long as we get more "Shuffle" flashbacks!

Kyle Chapman. Rex Orton. I see them as being essentially interchangeable.

So what's the sports pulse like out there in Chicago? You Bears fans really think you have a shot at making it to the Superbowl (aka the AFC Invitational Slaughterhouse)?

How come no one ever gets around to polling me?
