    Mike, where were your NFL predictions for last week?
    I've been impressed so far.

    You do know Cleveland is playing for the most part their all their back-ups on Offense on Sunday against the Viking, So i have no clue how you could choose the Browns to win, other then you being a Browns Homer. So please tell me why you think the Browns will win this game? Also you forgot to mention the Gophers and San Jose State game is on ESPN in your Viewers guide. You are aware that Fales is on of the most accurate QB in the nation right? and gophers had one of the best Pass D's in the Nation last year and this year right? so how would that not be a game people would want to see?

    I see where you're coming from, Mike. But because ABC and ESPN are the same entity, and sports broadcasts on ABC are (somewhat idiotically) referred to as "ESPN on ABC," I just thought it read a little more smoothly to say "ESPN's Jalen Rose." On his website, Rose refers to himself as an ESPN/ABC analyst, so that's what I've decided to change it to.

    No problem, Mike. I actually realized after I finished editing your piece that you had embedded the tweet anyway, so it wasn't a huge deal. Thanks for the hard work, though!

    Good eye, Mike. I made the change back. I was actually battling whether or not your use of "tipoff" was a verb (i.e. prior to tipping off), but on second glance, you're right. It's prior to the "tipoff." Cheers.

    Hi Mike, not sure if someone else took care of it (or if you put them back in yourself), but the videos are back in there now.

    No problem, Mike! This might be helpful for commas.
