NFL Notes:

  • Adam Jones pleaded guilty to a misdemeanour charge In Cincinnati today, avoiding a felony charge & trial for the obstruction incident he was involved in earlier this year.
    • He apologized to the officer and the court, and was sentenced to time-served (2 days).
    • Even though this was a “chuh” on the “0-CHUH CHUH!” scale, he will still probably earn a conduct review from the League.
  • Tom Brady says Gisele has signed off on his desire to play until age 45.
    • Meanwhile, Jimmy Garappolo gets older doing nothing but collecting rings for his dad’s memorabilia cabinet.
  • So…the Seahawks have interest in Kaep.
    • Given that Trevone Boykin was arrested twice in 11 days back in April, it makes the Hawks need for competent backup a little more transparent.
      • One was while as a passenger in a car that was in an accident; the other was for a probabtion violation arising from the first arrest.
  • Samantha Ponder, future host of ESPN’s “NFL Countdown”, has detailed how harsh Vikings fan were to her & the family while she was pregnant.
    • She basically stayed housebound during her whole pregnancy, to avoid conflict & stressing the baby.
      • Their lives got better, she said, once they left Minnesota.

I saw this over at Cracked today, in an article about sarcasm and/or smart-assed responses.

I felt the article was missing the classic Churchillian response to either Conservative MP Lady Astor or socialist MP Bessie Braddock: “I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly.” But I’m also the same guy who made Tom Cable out to be a raving psychopath.

It made me think about JSD & his conflicts with people who don’t get, or don’t want to get, basic instructions. Others have mentioned their issues at work; I myself work with troubled kids who can’t see a correlation between behaviour & outcome. For his conflicts, maybe he & one of DFO’s resident artists could come up with a pamphlet. That way, he can hand it out before beginning, or send it as a pdf when problems inevitably arise. If I recall correctly, there will also need to be a French version for someone who isn’t a customer.

“Sois un homme” just doesn’t sound right.

It’s also got me thinking about an article for the site, a “Don’t Do What Donny Don’t Does – Stadium Entry Edition”, based on the shit I’ve seen trying to enter Century Link Field these last 7 years. But I can’t draw for shit.

Anyway, that’s where my head was today. Feel free to discuss my mental state below, remembering that I will cut you.

I burned my fingers on a pan because I wasn’t paying attention, so I have that going for me.
