Yep, this actually arrived in my e-mail box Wednesday

During a week in which I've gotten hate mail from a candy-company executive, had my courage compared to chicken excrement and been accused of taking part in a Watergate-like cover-up, there was one e-mail that really stood out:

"You and the other writers can pretend all you want about the out come (sic) of the game. I guess the desire to win justifies anything. Thank goodness for a former high school ref that couldn't even gat (sic) through a college officiating school. I might give you the benefit of the doubt since you never experinced (sic) a man and coach called LOMBARDI!

Update: I stand corrected on the best e-mail I've received this week. This one comes from John in the Pacific Northwest:

"The whole world can see Jennings caught the ball - but not Seattle sports writers. The Germans could not understand why the rest of the world did not like them. Same with the Russians. You simply cannot understand how everyone else knows Jennings caught the ball. You are the ultimate loyal fan - but not a sports analyst. You and Carroll are clowns. Jokes."
                    -- Chuck

I don't know about you, but I bet the German and Russian readers are going to be hopping mad about being lumped in with schlumpy Northwest sports reporters such as myself.
