Revis and Buc-Head? I'm not sure if the was the first guy to get the "two thirds of the earth are covered by water and the other third is covered by [fill in CF/CB name]", but Darrelle Revis comes close; he just got traded to Tampa Bay, where he'll help a dysfunctional secondary. A sidebar on the ESPN piece noted that the Bucs were next to last in giving up 30+ plays outside the numbers, making their secondary the Tampa Poo.
I googled for that, and Garry Maddox is the original guy that got applied to.
They had Wacky-tobaccy Day yesterday. One gal pictured on Drudge either had lit up a Happier Hour burrito or had gotten into the prop room from Up in Smoke. If they folks were of a spiritual bent, they'd give high church a new meaning this morning.
You can get five-cent bags at Aldi, so skip the dime bags they're trying to sell.
The post-mortem of the Boston bombings begins; one interesting report had Tamerlan intereviewed by the FBI two years ago. It seems he had shown up on Russian intelligence radar and they asked the US to look into him. At the time, the federales didn't find anything to act upon.
I was just thinking of our pressure-cooker bomb. Buying a pressure cooker isn't going to show up on radar; we usually don't put Bed, Bath and Beyond on terror-watch mode. Buying a pound or two of nails at the hardware store to make the shrapnel won't raise any red flags, lest every building contractor get the white glove treatment. Only the explosive itself would create an issue, and in some cases (as OKC clearly would remind us) that you can make bombs out of "dual use" stuff with mundane applications.
Thus, folks like the Tsarnaev brothers wouldn't be caught doing anything wrong until they actually did something wrong. Remember, only donut shop owners like a police state.
