– It’s a good thing that I haven’t been watching any of the Brewer games, due to other commitments. Seeing a team NEVER get a hit with a runner in scoring position would get pretty damn old, pretty quick. Thankfully, I haven’t been listening to sports radio around here either…I’m sure that people pushed the panic button already. It’s only July. Hopefully things will get better.
– Another thing that I’ve managed to avoid for the last few days is the whole Favre thing. While I might have cared, even a week ago, I don’t give a tinkers cuss at this point. The whole thing is souring me on Favre and the Packers organization. I just hate the whole story and want it all to go away, so that I can think about enjoying watching some football. Right now, I just can’t see that.
– I spent a bit of time with the success mode in Power Pros 2008 last night. I don’t know why someone else hasn’t tried to make the same sort of quirky story mode in a sports game before. Marvin rules.
– As Dan mentioned earlier, the Facebreaker and Madden demos are out. Considering how pro-EA we are around here, I’m sure that they’ll be stellar titles and will redefine the football and boxing genres respectively. Seriously though, I’m going to have my wife try to kick off the downloads and I’ll try them out tonight and post my impressions.
Memo to Microsoft: Get remote downloading working on the 360. I’ve heard that the feature is on the way, and I love that I can use my PSP and use Remote play to kick off Playstation Store downloads before I get home.
