Round Up

The NIFL comes to town. Greensboro gets a second professional sports franchise. It looks like it will play a big part of its season concurrently with Greensboro' s other pro squad. I do give the new guys credit for a nickname that ties in well with Greensboro's history. Anxious to see if the Osceola Outlaws, Montgomery Maulers or Dayton Warbirds come to town.

Introduced by Mel Blount, Lynn Swann announces his candidacy seeking the GOP nomination for Pennsylvania governor. Swann said he will seek a primary if the state's GOP Committee gives its nod to another. I hopes his campaign proves as successful as the '75 season and ends as sweetly as Super Bowl X even though that result made me somewhat ill (a Dallas fan at the time)

Still waiting to see how the Jack Abramoff episode shakes out. We will see if the tide of history leaves a wake large enough to shake the Capitol columns or will it be Fitzmas Day all over. I'll have to say I'm more intrigued by Abramoff's body language right now. Check out the picture in the Daily Telegraph article. He looks like the kind of guy who charges into a room and will do his best to make sure you don't refuse his bribe.
