Quick Hits

* Every game from here on out involving the Raiders should be a low-scoring affair. First of all, Oakland's offense is atrocious: QB Andrew Walter has thrown only 3 touchdown passes and RB LaMont Jordan has rushed for one score. Secondly, the Raider defense is really good. They've picked off 10 passes and forced 14 sacks already. And finally, special teams. Chris Carr is a dependable kick returner, but he's not a Dante Hall-type gamebreaker. And no one messes with K Shane Lechler and his 50-yard bombs kicks. Oakland will steal a win or two against better teams because it keeps the score low and close.

* After opening night, maybe it's not too late to revamp my NBA Preview. AAU teams could've walloped Miami last night.

* Hopefully my $5 will go a long way toward getting my favorite baseball blog up-and-running once again.

* Paul Rodriguez has got an awesome PowerSong.

* If USC loses to Stanford this Saturday the world will implode.
