Well, I should have seen it coming. The Cardinals looked just awful, making the same old mistakes that plagued them in years past, stupid mental errors that resulted in ill-timed penalties. They even had a delay of game penalty after the 49ers had taken a timeout. Wasn't Warner looking at the clock? Wasn't anyone on the sidelines looking at the clock? Stupid, really stupid. This could be a very long year for the Cardinals . . . again. I'm betting they'll post an 8-8 season, and miss the playoffs . . . again.

The weekend in sports gave tennis a black and purple eye. Serena Williams let a line judge have it bigtime over a foot fault at a crucial point in her match against Kim Clijsters. The things she said to the poor woman who made the call were unforgivable. I realize that Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe could wail away at officials in the old days, but this went beyond simply screaming about a seeming injustice. This was vicious and ugly. The NBA and NFL have too often shown an ugly side with shootings and drug arrests and dui and speeding violations. Now tennis shows an ugly side. Golf may be the last bastion for dignity and fairness.
