Alberto Gonzalez Denies Habeas Corpus

So let me get this straight. Your Habeas Corpus rights can't be taken away, but you don't neccesarily have them?

Championship Round

While I slowly, slowly ease myself back into blogging, I offer another football post. While my predictions this year have been slightly off from last year's postseason (Did I mention I was 10-1?), overall it's not too bad at 5-3. Once again I'm taking the home teams. Tom Brady is not a god. He is mortal and he can be beaten in Indy. I also like the Bears defense and Chicago January weather to slow the Saints' offense.
In other news, the Steelers may have a new head coach. He may be Mike Tomlin. Or he may be Russ Grimm. Or maybe they didn't hire anyone.

Divisional Round Preview

I swear I am going to get back into this. Promise...kinda. But I do want to stay on top of the playoffs. The divisional round is upon us, and all the combatants are divisional winners since all wild-card teams folded last week. I think I'm just going to go with the home team in all these games, though in the AFC that's a little tougher sell. So, I'm taking the Chargers and Ravens to meet next week in San Diego for the AFC crown. And I think the Bears and Saints will battle it out in Chicago for the NFC title/obligatory AFC Super Bowl victim.

Playoff Preview

I know I haven't posted in three months and one day, but I want to get back into this. Obviously a lot has happened since my last post. However, since the NFL is sort of a side subject for this blog I wanted to quickly get my playoff predictions in for this weekend's games. I'm taking the Patriots over the Jets, the Eagles over the Giants, The Colts over the Chiefs and the Cowboys over the Seahawks. Just to let you know, last year I was 10-1 on my postseason picks. I never pick against the Steelers, so that was four correct picks there. But the one I got wrong was the toughest pick, almost a coin toss. Ultimately, I wrongly picked the Bears to beat the Panthers.

I'll have more NFL and of course current events posts in the days to come.
