The Fairly Detached Observers

All great partnerships can benefit from occasional times of separation. And so can the Observers, or at least half of them.

Sports in Real Life

For many years I’ve been daydreaming about sports. Not in your traditional “I wish I were Hank Aaron, or Tony Mandarich” kind of dreaming. In this wonderment I look at a sport and consider why some things aren’t different or more sporting. How could we make professional sports more interesting?

The Packers expected the season to open the post-Brett Favre era, and it did, but only after the soap opera of Favre’s unretirement...

The Fairly Detached Observers

Three weeks ago, the Green Bay Packers had just trampled the hated Chicago Bears and were tied for the division lead. Now, after a 24-21 loss to the lowly Houston Texans at frigid Lambeau Field, the Packers are 5-8 and all but eliminated from the playoff race.
