Anders Osborne Plays Portland O

It was a stone groove last night at Portland's Mississippi Studios as Anders Osborne along with Johnny Sansone and Clarence Bucaro invaded town on their Southern Troubadour Tour.

Obviously Hurricane Katrina and the ineptitude of the aftermath sucked. But there has really been some great music coming out of New Orleans in its wake.

Reaction To The SI Jeff Komlo Story

On June 15, 2009 Sports Illustrated published a facinating piece about former Delaware QB Jeff Komlo. Here is the reaction of another former player to that story:

In March, I dined with former college teammates from Delaware, and there were three linemen at the table, including myself, who had blocked for Jeff Komlo. When we shared the news of his recent demise, not a tear was shed. He was a talented athlete but a more talented con. He cared for one thing: himself. His actions went against the traditions of our school and all that we were brought up to believe was right.

-Former Delaware Player Joseph G. Susan Jr in a letter to Sports Illustrated published in the July 6, 2009 issue.
