Sports Friday. Falcons take on Rams. No Schumacher return.

I was disappointed to learn that Michael Schumacher’s return to Ferrari ended before it started. Earlier this year Schumacher injured his neck racing around on two-wheelers; apparently the injuries were enough to keep him from being fit enough to race. PlanetF1’s editorial hit the nail on the head.

The shame is F1’s. Schumacher’s return, however fleeting, would have been one of the highlights of the sporting year. Given that poor results would have been attributed to his age and inaction then a victory in Valencia or beyond would perhaps have been the equal of any other achievement in his F1 career. But such musings are now academic.

I am bitterly disappointed that I do not get to see Schumacher give it one more go.

Falcons visit the Rams
It is preseason, so to casual fans it is not very exciting, but there are plenty of positions to watch. Backup QB battle – will Shockley pass Redmond? How will the secondary shape up – Houston is out for this one, which means someone will have an opportunity to step it up a notch. What about the WR depth chart? Is there a number three on the team, much less who is going to fill the fourth and fifth spots on the depth charts?

Happy Friday!
