Brief NFL briefs:

  • Someone hacked the NFL’s twitter account, and posted the news Patriots fans were waiting for.
    • Bitterness remained after the truth came out.
      • About the hack & Goodell not being dead – not deflated balls. That’s still going on.
  • 7 teams opened veteran minicamps today: The Arizona Cardinals, Cleveland Browns, Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers. Here are your wagers:
    • First team with a major injury to a starter
    • First Browns injury (not to be confused with…)
    • What will Mark Sanchez hurt first?
    • Over/under on positive Jimmy Garoppolo press references – I call 36
    • Will Sam Bradford snap? Tie-breaker: Before or after he gets hurt?
    • Will Kaepernick play with others? What will his story be?

Well, get out the bear spray and put the sign on the door, because after tonight the US presidential election is ON! It’s the final primaries tonight, and if it was closer then California might’ve meant something. But, given that none of the states are “winner take all”, there’s no chance – outside of the convention – to still feel the Bern.

The current stage of the Sanders campaign. Next comes “bargaining”.

Results should start coming in about 5:00 ET, in case you want to waste your evening that way.

So it’s down to a historic battle between the first major-party female candidate and the first actual tycoon candidate since John Frémont.

Whereas Trump just yells at Mexicans & poses with Western heroes.
John Fremont fought Mexicans & knew Kit Carson.

If you live in one of those identified battleground states – CO, IA, FL, NC, NH, NM, NV, OH, OR, VA, – you’d best be setting your voice mail recording to “PISS OFF”, because you are about to get a whole bunch of robocalls. And I hope you like strangers knocking at your door, because 2016 and all of that PAC money is going to get dropped on making sure you get every pamphlet and know every position the candidates hold.

BTW, it’s too late to help Bernie, and too early to help Trump, but good ol’ boy Roger Clinton grabbed himself a DUI on Sunday night. I’m guessing he thought his 2001 pardon was a lifetime pass.

To squash more of your hopes for a peaceful summer – don’t think if you live outside one of those battleground states you’re going to be immune from the madness. There are 34 Senate seats up, and the Republicans have to defend 24 of those. Given that there’s already one SCOTUS seat in limbo, I hope you enjoy being harassed walking into & out of Target & Costco.

To improve your mood before the comments, here’s some Pet Shop Boys.

I’ll be seeing them LIVE on October 24th. I may be the only breeder there.


Tonight’s Copa Schedule:

  • USA vs Costa Rica – 8:00 – @ Soldier Field
  • Colombia vs Paraguay – 10:30 – @ the Rose Bowl

I wonder whose anthem will get screwed up tonight? Sunday was Uruguay, and Monday was Chile. Here’s hoping they’ve dusted off Carl Lewis for another Chicago appearance.

Alternative Programming:

  • ABC – “The Bachelorette” – 8:00
    • Is Aaron Rodgers’ brother still on? How many of them have VD yet? So many questions…
  • Showtime – “60 Minutes Sports” – 9:00
    • this will be where they show the somewhat-talked about Marshawn Lynch interview.
  • VH1 – “Purple Rain” – 9:00

I discovered that there is apparently a “Univision Canada” channel, and it is the network showing the Copa up here. Since it’s neither a mandatory French channle nor part of my optional cable packages, it’s been all questionable streams for me. I think my wife would prefer I watch Russian porn on my iPad than garbled Russian TV feeds.

THAT ARRANGED CAN BE!

Gremlins was dark as fuck. I’d rather watch a million Indians get their hearts ripped out by Mola Ram than watch something “cute” like that.

I may do a post on it but the SoCal DFO Chapter get together is live and breathing and is a real fucking thing.

June 25th. It’s a Saturday and there are few obligations. Let’s say 2-3 PM

I’ll host, We will grill and we have the entire kitchen available including our pantry and fridge.
If you are nearby and want a shot at the champ, then step the fuck up.

I’m bringing my A game and may go double grillage.

Speak now or forever hold your peace.

/holds piece.

I’m buying ALL OF the rounds.

You’re running out of excuses.
If you can get to LAX we can get you here.

Ok, peeps, I’m trying to drive a stake through the heart of this nagging cold, so no insomnia fun for me. Keep an eye on MTWV, and don’t burn the place down.

So I accidentally starved myself today to the point I am in the very early stages of starting to go into seizures later. I have food cooking so I should be fine, but I should know better by now and not let this happen

WCS

Why not eat some crackers or a piece of fruit in the meantime? Instant sugar and carbs to bridge the gap until the real food is ready.

I do have an apple sitting here for that very purpose. I should probably eat it

Contemplating spending a whole bunch of money to try and go to Wimbledon this year. I really enjoy watching tennis a lot more now that I play and can appreciate strategy and stuff, so I’m sure it would be a really good time, but there’s really no reason not to go to a major US tournament and spend way less money. On the other hand, the dollar is still strong right now, so it might be cheaper to go now than to wait and go some time in the future. Plus I could drink Pimm’s Cups!

If you go to the US Open you can hang out with me! Not at the same time because I’m not going to the US Open, but still!

Don’t stay anywhere near Wimbledon if you go.

Rent a car or take the train out to Woking or Slough or Aldershot and put some distance between yourself and the city. It’s fucking nuts there during Wimbledon. You also meet more interesting people outside London.

Find a Travelodge out there in the boonies and set up shop. They’re dirt cheap, they’re everywhere, and they have unlimited English breakfast for £8. That’s three years of UK business travel talking.

My mom has decided to question a minimum wage hike in the comments of a post on my Facebook page. Anyone have experience with the fallout of banning your mother from commenting on your Facebook page? I already had to do that to my grandmother.

Thing Mark Sanchez will hurt first : The Bronco’s chances of defending their title

Talib took a shot at that already.

Well, helping corral a bunch of elementary school kids in a gymnasium to play Lightly Row is some level of Hell. Thank goodness I never have to… two more schools? In the next week? Auuuuuugh. How do you do it, Maestro?

But I did go to the previously mentioned Butcher Bar for dinner after. I am now in a food standing eight count.
