Like most Smiths fans under 30, I think I heard about Morrissey being pissed off for some reason or another before I'd heard him croon over a single perfect Johnny Marr riff. He's a self-consciously difficult figure to ignore once he's wedged himself into the news, a stout British guy with a volumin ... More >>
Davynin, Via.[Editor's note: For those who might have forgotten, Michael Corcoran is formerly of the Austin American-Statesman and Dallas Morning News, a one-time Observer contributor and one of my favorite writers in the history of ink.

Draft schmaft. How about a mock schedule? The NFL will release its 2010 regular-season menu tonight at 6 on NFL Network. We know the Dallas Cowboys' opponents for next this season, we just don't when they'll play where. Without the aid of a hidden cell phone video, allow me to take a st ... More >>
According to the Pro Bowl, Peyton Manning and Kurt Warner are the two best NFL quarterbacks of 2008. According to me, nonsense. Warner has the best receivers in the league and throws in the worst division in football. Manning was steady, but hardly spectacular. My rankings, which take into acc ... More >>
