Marc will become famous soon enough
Talking Google Fight!

http://www.googlefight.com

This is slightly amusing ... type in two items and see who "wins" according to Google's search results. I'll start:

http://www.googlefight.com/cgi-bin/c...re=1&langue=us

Marc James 1 360 000 results
versus
Lee Manchur 230 results

The winner is: Marc James

How does this work? Does it just go by what words are searched more often?

No, it compares the total results each search term has when you search for it. If I search for Mark and it has 100 results while a search for Marc has 50 results on Google, Mark would win.

It's all irrelevant when I beat you at your own game, Marc.

Marc, I'm tied for 2nd, just like you.... overall points doesn't mean anything until playoff time, and by then, I'll still be 2nd (only alone, not a tie )

Yeah, right ... you beat me without my best player, McNabb. It's not hard to beat me when my best player is on a bye. Hope that made you feel good, though.

Well then you can also make the argment that I should be at 5-1 also, because my best player (Garcia) was on a bye-last week.

That's the roll of the die, live with it.

Last week, he played the Seahawks on MNF. But get what you're saying ... it was the week before.
