Protesters Steal Olympic Torch in Transit

Protesters of the globalization movement briefly nabbed the Olympic Torch from runner Eleanora Berlanda as she carried it through northern Italy on Monday. Berlanda admitted the protesters were aggressive but not towards her. It appeared that they just wanted to steal the torch and not to hurt anyone.

Ben and Eli in Love

There are rumors that Pittsburgh Steelers rookie quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is dating Natalie Gulbis, an LPGA golfer. My favorite gossip is the rumor that Eli Manning exchanged digits with Lindsay Lohan. Eli and Ben are such sweet men; I hope they find happiness with their lovely lady friends.

The Stats Don’t Lie

The Baltimore Ravens season fell below expectations and was disappointing for us fans. I want to point out though that the Ravens broke a lot of records and racked up some pretty impressive statistics in 2005. Todd Heap gained more receiving yards this season than any other player in Ravens history with 2,893 total yards. He was third in the running for the most catches with 75. Kyle Boller tied for second most completions in franchise history with 335. Todd Heap and Derrick Mason were first in the NFL for wide receiver and tight end combos with 161 catches combined. Looking at the stats I see a Ravens team that can build on their performance and shine brightly in 2006.

Boller Makes Mistakes We Can’t Afford

This Baltimore Ravens season has been disappointing at best. Kyle Boller is not a bad quarterback but he makes mistakes and doesn’t complete enough passes. I can’t say he is the sole reason for our poor play this year but the team does need a strong leader. Kyle Boller is not a bad leader but as we saw in their last game of the season, he makes bad decisions. With minutes left in our game against the Cleveland Browns, Kyle Boller threw into double coverage and the ball was inevitably intercepted and the Browns won the game. Our whole season was summed up in that one bad move.
