[from NFL News by Gregg Easterbrook on]

Dumbledore Apparates to Nation's Capital

Many readers, including Mary Ellen A. of Charlotte, N.C. and Aaron L. of Washington, D.C., supposed that since TMQ called Steve Spurrier Dobby the Elf, I must now refer to Joe Gibbs as Professor Dumbledore. For those whose kids do not compel them to follow the Harry Potter saga, Dobby the Elf is a sniveling, wretched creature -- and somehow Spurrier seemed to get smaller each week on the sidelines, in another year he might have become an elf -- while Dumbledore is an all-knowing good wizard. Mary Ellen haikuizes:

Dumbledore returns!
Waves wand, old team disappears;
winners then appear.

-- Mary Ellen A., Charlotte, N.C.
