Got plans? You might think mine involve the game tonight. You'd be right. :)
Steelers (5-1) v Saints (4-3) tonight in the SuperDome. Turnovers will be the key tonight like they almost always are for the Saints. When they take care of the ball, they win. When they don't, they usually lose. Turnovers killed them in all three of their losses. The opponent doesn't much matter. Every single team the Saints have faced this season has had some fire in their belly. They need to return fire tonight. I'd like the Saints chances better if they were healthier but no excuses, no quarter. Play your game, Saints. Take care of the ball and you'll take care of the Steelers.
As of this writing, the Jaguars are up on the Cowboys, 28-3, in Dallas. Big Trouble brewing in Big D. Someone may get fired DURING that game.
I offer three from the CrabAppleLane Backyard. If you're keeping score, it goes no maintenance, maintenance, no maintenance. The maintenance is the bent axle. It needs to be replaced. I always bend the right front axle on the finish mower. This is the third time I've done it. It happens when I don't lift the mower when I'm cutting near my driveway. You ever try to merge onto the interstate when they're resurfacing and the interstate is higher? Finish mowers aren't built for that sort of thing.

About today's QOTD: If you've ever read anything about Vlad the Impaler, you will know he is much scarier than the Dracula in Bram Stoker's novel. Bram Stoker's Dracula is very loosely based on Vlad. For what it's worth, Dracula is my all-time favorite book. Love it. There is a passage in that novel that still sends shivers down my spine. Anyone who has read the book knows the exact passage I'm talking about.
5 song iTune shuffle from the CrabAppleLane Five Star playlist:
- Only Happy When It Rains - Garbage - Garbage
- Til I Hear It From You - Gin Blossoms - Empire Records
- Wind Up - Jethro Tull - Aqualung
- Sultans Of Swing - Dire Straits - Alchemy
- All Mixed Up - The Cars - The Cars
I think it's really clever to bring tourists in with the Dracula myth. But it's our duty to share real stories with tourists.

Quote from said blog: "The Saints are thin at running back and banged up in the secondary while the Steelers are banged up on the defensive line. Both teams can be really dangerous on offense and through the air. The Saints certainly miss what Reggie Bush adds to the offense and Brees has played very un-Brees like thus far in 2010. I think you could see some high scoring in this game and quite a few big plays. I think the Steelers are the deeper of the two teams still and are better coached as well. Steelers get a late defensive or special teams touchdown to win this one. Final Score: Steelers 34 Saints 31"
