Wednesday's wash

NBA DIARY: among others, we'll be following the Dallas Mavericks this season. But it all got off to a rocky start, as the Mavs didn't shoot well or defend well, and lost at home to Washington 102-91. The Mavs got off to a slow start last year as well. They need to make sure that doesn't happen this season.
But as we said yesterday, the season has a long, long, long way to go...

Vince Young to replace Kerry Collins as the starting quarterback in Tennessee? All I can say is: you never want the owner of the team, and not the head coach, deciding who's going to play quarterback.
If the owner knew about these things, he'd coach the team AND own it.

Continuing bad news for used-to-be-Republican-now-Democrat Arlen Specter in Pennsylvania:
"Specter has a 28 percent favorable rating, 46 percent unfavorable. Only 29 percent approve of the job he's doing. Only 23 precent say he deserves reelection, while 66 percent say it's time for a change."
The poll shows a hypothetical race between he and conservative Pat Toomey to be basically a toss-up right now. But those kind of favorable/unfavorables almost always spell doom for an incumbent. Arlen Specter's in big trouble.
