Nope, this has nothing to do with Apple’s new lineup of iPods. Rather, this has everything to do with football season starting tonight.

Several years ago I posted about how I couldn’t stand all of the press that the Cubs were getting. The time, of course, being their magical 2003 run to the playoffs ending in of course sweet disaster. Atypically, Cub nation is back @ full strength and find themselves in the middle of a playoff push. I’m not sure if you can call it a playoff push, they have the luxury of playing in the NL Central which while offering doormats like Pittsburgh and Cincinnati does have two other teams in Milwaukee and St. Louis that are giving them a little run for their money. Anyway, my team is 20 games under .500 2 years removed from a World Championship, so my focus has been on the Bears and the NFL season.

In honor of opening night (Indy v. New Orleans) – I offer you this excellent 8 minute clip of selected highlights from Mike Ditka press conferences.
