INSTANT CLASSIC: BULLETIN BOARD FODDER

ESPN tipped us to this little gem.

OK, the whole “bulletin board material” thing is probably overrated, but if you are the Jacksonville Jaguars headed up to Foxboro to take on the undefeated, and seemingly invincible, New England Patriots do you need to toss any gas on the competitive fires?

The official site of the Jags has an item called "Power Rankings." At right, you can see a portion of the graphic, and if you look closely you will note that the #1 team in the power rankings is the Pats. No surprise there. Look closer and note the asterisk next to their name. When we scrolled down to the bottom of the rankings (the Skins were 9th) we saw this:

* Cheated in one game.

No kidding. Right there in black and white for all the world to see – “Cheated in one game.”

You gotta admit, that’s a good one.

Nice, Jags, NICE!

Here’s the real deal: http://www.jaguars.com/News/PowerRankings.aspx

(Note: 1/11/08 - The Jags pulled the asterisk saying it was getting blown out of proportion. No doubt the TAH post was the last straw...)
