Would be good if Deco's given name was Arthur.

That would make his creative playing and his name equal

Just a quickie on the footy front. Well done England for winning last night.
Don't get carried away,Russia next Wednesday will be a different animal--probably a bear--with a sore head.
I also see that Germany hit-man Miroslav Klose moved the Germans 'One Step Kloser' to Euro 98 Finals with two goals against the Principality of Wales last night.

We know you are a Rams fan but do you and the other Asia lads share any footie commonality? Are the other guys (manager's and crew) footie fans as well?

Sheva can't get a game at Chelsea---but neither can 'never mind the' Ballack.
The Blues have one hell of a Reserves team right now. Good luck in the Ukraine,stick to Chicken Kiev.

It's a strange thing: Sheva was a great player when he played in Milan and so was Ballack... what do they do in Chelsea? BTW I read that INTER could change Adriano for Ballack... it would be a good move for both clubs.

As for American football ... my beloved Steelers made mincemeat of the Cleveland Browns yesterday 34-7, I mean it was downright embarassing.  Mike Tomlin was the only rookie coach (out of 4 I believe) to win his season opener .  Now, if they can just improve on protecting Roethlisberger just a BIT more, so he doesn't get sacked!  Don't want to see that boy get hurt -- he had enough last year (after a pre-season motorcycle accident and emergency appendectomy just before the season started).

I think coach Tomlin is the only Steeler coach to beat the Cleve' Brownies in his first attempt.  All 18 other head coaches have failed.  I'm sure I saw Cowher's first try, but I and anyone else not yet a bit into their 40's could remember Noll's first attempt back in '69. 

Interestingly enough, both Cowher and Noll started their pro playing careers as Brownies.  Tomlin never played in the NFL.

This win had 4 TD passes to four different receivers, including 2 TEs.  And more outstanding blocks down field by Hines and his gang of pain inflicting WRs.  DBs who don't keep in mind where he is are likely to get escorted of the field with a halo of stars 'round their heads.

I was born at the (original) St. Joseph's Hospital in Towson, although I have not lived in the Baltimore area since toddler-hood.  However, I know that accent so very well, as my mother was born and raised there, as were my grandparents and great-grandparents on her side, etc.  (Old Irish families that have lived in that town for many generations, I have a massive extended family on that side that I have met very few of).

I am not a big NFL fan, but I am an Orioles fan!  I finally saw a game at Camden Yards when I was there back in 1999.  I remember seeing many O's games at the old Memorial Stadium when visiting in my childhood.

Now, if Baltimore could just get another NBA team...!      Yeah, I am a bigger basketball fan!

Anybody know of any other (relatively well-known) musicians that were born and/or raised in the Baltimore area than Frank Zappa or Ric Ocasek?  I know that Tori Amos grew up there and attended Peabody when she was a young child prodigy (youngest ever to get a scholarship there).  I mention Zappa if only because of his musical connections with Eddie Jobson and Terry Bozzio, who in turn are musically connected with JW.

Non-musical folk like "Babe" Ruth,  John Waters, and Edgar Allan Poe need not apply. 


Regards,

Bill



*** P.S. Yep, still around...just lurking here from time to time, in an effort to follow up with JW and his ongoing recovery.
