Rubin over at Blinq does a nice round up of random Bloom links including a story on how he snubbed Parisite Hilton.  He also opted for the topless shot of Bloom as opposed to the kick-ass-mid-air-flying-over-a-helicopter shot.

Washington Post: Eagles Offering Skier Bloom A Shot at Return:

The Eagles continued to remake their offensive and defensive lines yesterday by trading two veterans, guard Artis Hicks and defensive tackle Hollis Thomas. Hicks was sent to the Minnesota Vikings for a sixth-round choice and a swap of fourth-rounders. Thomas was dealt to the New Orleans Saints in an exchange of fourth-round draft positions that enabled the Eagles to select Georgia guard Max Jean- Gilles.

-I think the trend among recent episodes of the Sopranos is to go for more humor than blood and guts.  A.J. using the scene from the Godfather where Michael guns down McCluskey as his defense for his weak ass attempt on Junior was hysterical.  I wonder if the A.J. plot line will develop into anything meaningful.
-I’d highly recommend the banana french toast at Marathon.
