Ultra-patient QB Kurt Warner is likely to get the start in Kansas City Saturday for week 2 of the preseason. Particularly after sitting out the entire game vs. New Orleans last weekend, I have no doubt that he is excited.

Injuries: The Cardinals have a few minor injuries: DE Darnell Docket (strained pectoral muscle), S Antrel Rolle (ankle), and WR Early Doucet (hamstring), and these players are unlikely to play against the Chiefs. CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle) did participate in practice, and may play a bit tomorrow. Finally, LB Monty Beisel was removed from the PUP list and practiced as well.

Update from Training Camp: Following the minor skirmishes during Wednesday night’s practice in Flagstaff (which I finally attended), things have calmed down a bit, with Coach Whisenhunt saying the abundance of competitiveness (and, no doubt, testosterone) made it “a good practice.”
So, here are a few (kinda dark) photos from Wednesday night’s practice at Lumberjack Stadium (thanks to hubby for not using the flash….)

Well, they are human: I (finally) took my 13 y/o daughter to see “The Dark Knight” last Wednesday at the local theatre up here. As we were parking, she pointed out the white buses and the camera crew poised near the exit. Expressing frustration that the theatre may be closed and she was dying to see the movie, and that life wasn’t fair, I attempted to placate her raging hormones by remarking that the Cardinals were probably seeing a movie, as we were there for the first showing.
As we walked to the door, lo and behold, who should emerge from the theatre, but the Cardinals. Not wanting to miss such a prime opportunity to embarrass her beyond belief, I started saying such things as “Hi”, “Good game last week”, “Have a great season, guys”, “What did you see?” (one of the guys said they saw “Stepbrothers” and it was just “O.K.”), etc. and pointing out players and spouting stats to her beet-red, mortified, teenaged face. I even managed to let Fitz know I drafted him in one of my fantasy leagues.
Once we were seated in the theatre, she whispered to me, “OMG, they were, like, TALL!”
