    Helmet Om Field: Synaptic Shotgun 8.8.10

    August 8, 2010

    Occasional, recurring short-form posts about

    ALBERT HAYNESWORTH - so the big man is on the field. I had seriously begun to think that the entire convoluted, fitness-test-"injury"-MRI-are-you-serious-melodrama wasn't a charade presented for public consumption.
