Harrington looks good but Falcons lose big in preseason opener

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Joey Harrington looked comfortable running the Atlanta Falcons' offense. He's not Michael Vick, but he showed he can scramble a little bit, too.

Outdoor Life: Boating adventure on the high seas

My best fishing buddy is Coach Steve Cisson. He's a machine when it comes to finding and landing all kinds of creatures from the deep. Most of the things I know about the sport, I learned from him including the fact that you should never go out in a small boat on a big lake when there is a storm brewing. I wish to convey that message to you today so that you will not blunder into the trap he led me into one day on Clarks Hill Lake.
