On The St. Louis Rams And Dreaming About Percy Harvin Trade Rumors

I like Ryan Van Bibber's explication of the latest Percy Harvin trade-rumor-as-negotiation-tactic goings-on up in Minnesota: There's almost no chance he'll go to the St. Louis Rams, but why not dream about it anyway? It's better than wondering about how healthy Danario Alexander is, or Steve Smith, or trying to figure out how good Brian Quick will be in his rookie season, and there'll be plenty of time for that, anyway, once the Harvin situation resolves.

This is really the proper way of enjoying any trade rumor tying the St. Louis Rams to a big-name wide receiver, which happens every three months or so. Randy Moss? Vincent Jackson? Broken-down Terrell Owens? Just visualize it for a while, wait for the news to resolve itself with the receiver going somewhere else, and then, reluctantly, go back to thinking about Brandon Gibson on a regular basis.

It's a way of avoiding madness. In this way you can think about the Rams receivers as often as you probably should without actually thinking of Rams receivers, an ideal situation if ever I've seen one.
