Lead: The first person to throw rocks on a team.
Well, the New York Giants had the lead against the Tennessee Titans, then they didn't. The Big Apple needs to hear little more beyond that. (Okay, don't read this if you are a Giants fan: New York took a 21-0 lead into the fourth quarter only to have Tennessee storm back with 24 unanswered points for the win.)
As for Mathias Kiwanuka, he'd rather be fishing, apparently. Because on a 4th down play, the Giants' defensive end played catch and release with Titans QB Vince Young, who then wriggled for the first down.
Although you can't help but snigger at the New York Post's sports front page: "TITANIC CHOKE GAGS BIG BLUE." Double entendres aside, the ones in blue weren't choking. See, the Giants pulled out the red-and-white unis. Although after Young's fourth quarter mastery, I'm sure the voters are kicking themselves for giving the Heisman Trophy to Tiki Barber prior to this game.
Second: The second person to throw rocks on a team.
So USC moved up to second in the BCS polls with a win over overrated Notre Dame. (His words, not mine.) So let's recount who the Trojans have beaten: Arkansas (by 36), Nebraska, California, and now the Irish — all by a combined score of 145-57.
Forget the squeakers to Arizona State and the Washington duo, as well as the heartbreak to Oregon State. Those four victories against current Top 20 teams were all decisive. Michigan played Ohio State well, and beyond the Notre Dame and Wisconsin victories they didn't have a ton of tough games. Wow, maybe USC did earn the right to play in Glendale. Of course, this will probably change when UCLA upsets their crosstown foe, and I'll be singing the glory of Arkansas or Boise State or someone like that.
House: The three concentric rings (the "bullseye") on either side of the sheet, where points are scored.
