NFL Notes:

  • Stephen Tulloch was cut by the Lions Tuesday. He was kept on the active roster until he passed a physical, at which point he was released. (This move cost $500K towards Detroit’s 2016 cap.) If nothing else, it proves that you can’t discount the effect of the double-check.
  • Boston College announced it will retire the jerseys of Matt Ryan and Luke Kuechly at separate games during the 2016 season.
    • They will join the ranks of Art Donovan & Doug Flutie in BC lore.
  • Randall Cunningham’s daughter qualified for the Rio Olympics in the high jump, somehow also putting her third on the Eagles WR depth chart.
  • Maybe rap beefs have changed since I was a kid, but Ciara suing Future for defamation over parenting skills has unearthed a supposed threat to Russell Wilson’s life? That’s DangeRuss!

Finally, Ricardo Lockette has told his story about the hit that ended his career. Read the full version at The Player’s tribune. I was watching that game, and it was a frightening moment. I’m just happy dude can still walk.


The next two days have Euro semi-final matches. Portugal – Wales on Wednesday; Germany – France on Thursday. In an ideal world, Portugal – France is the final FIFA wants, because it allows a marquee player and the host nation to line up against each other. As we have learned, I’m the worst at predictions, so there’s no guessing from me about this. I just hope neither game goes to penalties, because that’s just the worst.

The best, however, was Iceland returning home to a hero’s welcome and leading the gathered throng in one more round of the “viking clap”, something that has surpassed Fred Smoot in google searches about VD in Minnesota.

If you want to watch the whole ceremony, and understand Icelandic, here’s a link.

Tonight’s Sports:

  • MLB: national (on ESPN)
    • 7:00 – All-Star Game selection show
    • 8:00 – Pirates @ Cardinals 

Alternative programming:

  • Showtime – 60 Minutes Sports – 9:00
    • among the topics covered, hurling.
  • FXX – The Simpsons 4-hour block. Highlights:
    • 9:00 – “24 Minutes”
    • 11:00 – “Poppa’s Got a Brand New Badge”
  • E! – Botched – 9:00
    • “Short Changed at the Nipple Bank”

Twenty days to go until training camps open. WE CAN MAKE IT!

To you non procreators out there and those of you intimidated by the babies.

Holy shit, you have every right to be intimated. I had my ID checked at the desk and the little kiddo has A Lo-jack attached to her ankle.
Are you shitting me?

Why the fuck would I intentionally take one of these?
Do you know what they grow into?

She’s goddamn adorable and I couldn’t hand her back to my daughter fast enough.
I love her more than anything but I’m not taking that home!

It was really cute when the only way she could get rid of the hiccups was by sneezing.
She’s awesome.

Text me if you need something kiddo.

The thing that goes through my mind is this little girl has been on the planet less than 24 hours and EVERYTHING has got to be sensory overload.

She’s basically been incubating in a fucking jello mold and suddenly she’s free.

Her legs were pumping so fast she ran a fucking marathon while I held her. Then the constant stretch.

This is why we procreate.

This right here.

The face you get at work when someone goes on and on that you have to act like you are paying attention.

So who had Trump responding to the FBI’s Hilary decision by praising Saddam Hussein? His firmware is no good. Someone fucked up and left out a semicolon.

It’s really amusing. The actual press conference announcing that charges shouldn’t be filed was basically all you needed to run a hell of an attack ad for the next four months. Just repeat it. And Trump can’t even get THAT right.

If they can do anything it is repeat horseshit ad nauseam and make their opponents say it is a lie multiple times so eventually they seem defensive; but apparently Trump is unable to even grasp that.

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

Someone pointed out he was using kettle logic which is the line of attack you use when you have no coherent plan *and* want to make yourself look worse.

I don’t think he is that self aware. His ego blinds him of any self-realization.
