Strange powers of football and garlic [2/2/09]

In 1944, when the then Chicago Cardinals combined rosters with the Pittsburg Steelers (because the war had depleted both benches so much that this was the only way they could field a full team) they went 0-10.

Three years after that, they were NFL champions.

Three years after that, they were on the bottom of the heap again (though 0-10 still stands as their worst season ever.)

My wife learned about the power of garlic, after reading in a woman’s magazine that eating a clove of garlic would clear up a sinus infection.

It did, mostly, but after she stopped throwing up.

Judging from the attendance at my Superbowl party, writers are, in general, lonelier and/or thirstier than stagehands. So don’t announce your party to a writer’s group unless you’re prepared for for all of them…

The future of podcasting is wide open, according to Time.

Now you know.
