    Came across this little blurb from a Bill Simmons article. Funny stuff:

    http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=simmons/061110

    My daughter is 18 months old and I haven't come close to dropping her yet, or even nearly dropping her, even though I've been holding her and tripped over phone cords and dog tails and everything else you can imagine. I mean, I would never drop her. The parental instinct gives you super-powers -- it's hard to explain unless you're a parent, but somebody could shoot my kid out of one of those T-shirt cannons that they use for NBA games and I would catch her 100 times out of 100 even if you had me hogtied and wearing high heels.

    Anyway, I was thinking about this because every time I watch a big Vikes game, Troy Williamson drops at least one huge pass. So why couldn't they hypnotize him to have the same instincts for a football that parents have for their children? Couldn't this work? I feel like this would definitely work. And honestly? I haven't been this excited about an idea since I was pushing for the networks to hire lip readers a few years ago. Have sports teams ever explored hypnosis before? I would also want the Celtics to hypnotize Tony Allen into realizing that he shouldn't dribble or shoot under any circumstances, not even in pregame warmups.

    I guarantee you on the first drive of the Packers game, Childress scripted his plays to feature Troy.
    When a receiver's confidence is down, the best thing a coach can do is go right back at that player .
    If Troy does not respond in the Packers game, i'm afraid its the beginning of the end for Troy in MN.

    Yeah, he wouldn't know his brain from his jiggly butt when it comes to actually saying something of substance regarding football, but his articles generally are pretty entertaining.
