It’s the most wonderful time of the year…: Those new to this weblog need to be forewarned. From, say, now until, say, about February 6, 2005, there may be, from time-to-time, a post-or-two regarding one of my favorite topics. As I know there is at least one Oakland fan among this weblog’s vast audience of seven readers, I will try not to gloat too much as the season progresses. Unfortunately for my hometeam, having ones placekicker out for an entire season — the second entire season in a row — is not the best way to kick-off things.
