True story: I was a video-game deprived child. Thus, the necessary synaptic connections to play video games with anything approaching skill never formed in my brain, and to this day I am one of the few people I know who never, ever plays them. So just add that to the list of reasons I find the fact that this is among the bigger Patriots news items* this week so depressing.
(*Other than all the lively debate to be had about kickoff rules, of course...or, if you're truly hardcore, there's the heady controversy over Belichick skipping a press breakfast during the offseason meetings...)
Still, the fact remains: though there may be no actual football next year, Woodhead could still achieve at least artificial NFL greatness by making the cover of the next Madden. So I guess it's best to root him on -- could be the only chance we get this year, after all.
Oh! One other bit of Patriots news this week, in my household, specifically: a fairly important MEMO TO SELF -- take that mashup of "Beautiful Day" with Super Bowl XXXVI highlights OFF iTunes, lest Shuffle find it again, for the foreseeable future.
And so if you'll excuse me, with apologies to Bill Simmons, I will now light myself on fire. Just as soon as I vote for Woodhead.
