A Cure for what ails ya

Brett Favre has often been called a franchise savior. And he is. But he doesn't necessarily save the franchise that he is playing for. There might come a time, if the Chargers can get back to winning, that Favre could be considered the MVP of the franchise.

If the Chargers make the playoffs, they should devote a full share to Favre.

When the Chargers needed a franchise player the most, there was Favre, generously giving the football to the Chargers. And there were times when the Chargers did not want to receive these generous gifts -- dropping sure pick six touchdowns -- but in the end, Favre was determined to but the Chargers back on the road to recovery.

Maybe Favre can don some referee gear later in the year to help give back some of those bad calls. But for now, the Chargers must be thankful for their teammate in a Jets uniform.

(BTW, if the NFL had any sense of humor, Ed Hochuli would have been working Monday night's game.)

Favre also might have helped to save Antonio Cromartie's season, too. Just as Peyton Manning put Cormartie in the Pro Bowl last season with three interceptions, Favre was just as willing. (Only Cromartie dropped one of the gifts.)

It's a good day when the Broncos are 3-0 and the Chargers are 1-2.

Without Merriman, that Chargers defense hit its high point against the greatest INT QB of all time.

Oh and the Sun Devils would go undefeated for the season remainder if they only had Big 10 teams left.

Yes, Donk fans are still dancing in the streets about that blown call. Never mind that the Donk defense never shows up in the second half and that the shine from Shanahan's false teeth would injure a blind man at 20 yards.

Just sayin.

Oh, and I'm a Sun Devil alum too!

Sun Devil alum? You were able to pull through the drive-thru when your number was called? [/wildcat alum]

Does Tempe still have that drive-thru liquor store right by campus? I believe it was right by that bar that was built with an A-frame right behind the new fraternity row.

The drive-through liquor store on Rural Road is gone, as is Shepard's, the bar that was right next door. They are now the site of a McDonald's, I believe. Shepard's, affectionately known across the street at ASU Law School as "The Dog", was where I met Mrs. Bucky a lifetime ago.

Any of you ASU folk ever patronize Four Peaks? That's a must for me anytime I'm in Tempe.

Diane said...

Anybody else used to get drunk at Don Vitos across from UCI? Anybody? Any fellow Anteaters in the house? And I'm not talking about you uncircumcised guys.

Well, what did we learn from last nights game? The Charges are back and the Jets, a la Favre will still be in the basement again. Great game.

Jerry's Drive Through Liquor is still going strong.

Bucky, you went to ASU Law? I thought I was the only idiot on these boards who went to law school.

buckyor said...

I gotta remember not to read Diane's comments while having breakfast. Otherwise Mrs. Bucky is gonna find me on the kitchen floor looking like Violet Beauregarde.

I thought Jerry's was gone, but I know Shepard's is. Four Peaks is a Vikings' bar; Packer fans used to hang out at the Thirsty Beaver up the street.

Thirsty Beaver is now Dos Gringos, the ultimate undergrad bar. Amare Stoudemire likes that place.

Dos Gringos is the open-air, two story bar?
