Don Draper hates surprises. So does Peyton Manning.

Anyone who caught last night's "Mad Men" premier will get that. Note to self: get French-Canadian wife. ... A vital point left somewhat unclear in Doug Farrar's article is whether the Seahawks were well and truly out of it, before they launched Operation Tarmac Surprise. And while I must agree with Farrar's observation that "the move seems a bit tone-deaf in retrospect", I have to love Pete Carroll's attitude here: "We tried to fit in to their schedule that looked like it had some space in it, but there wasn't enough. So we made an effort. It's kind of just classic for us — just competing to try to find a way and we just couldn't pull it off at that time. We had to take a shot at that. It didn't work out for us there." When the pot is that big, you take a shot at it, right?
