Revis goes from Bucs to Pats

Revis Island is taking a trip up the East Coast. After being released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Darrelle Revis signed a deal to join the New England Patriots. For the Bucs, it was a money and draft-position-saving move. For the Pats, it's a way to replace the departed Aqib Talib. For Revis, it's "basically about just winning." What do you make of it all?

John AxfordAP Photo/Paul SancyaJohn Axford's arsenal includes a hard fastball, a sharp curveball, and comprehensive film expertise.

Three possibilities exist to explain Indians closer John Axford correctly picking 18 out of 18 categories at the Oscars:

One, John Axford has an extensive knowledge of film history and Academy voting patterns.

Two, John Axford got lucky.

Three, John Axford is in fact a psychic, and his perfect Oscar bracket is only the opening salvo in a campaign of global domination.

We think it's probably one of the first two. Check that. We hope it's one of the first two.
