NFL News:

  • Proving you can move a team but the misery still follows, Chargers rookie Mike Williams is out of remaining OTAs with a herniated disc.
  • Jamaal Charles hopes to be the #1 back in Denver in 2017.
    • “When I left Kansas City, I was still at the top. It was just the injury. You can’t really control injuries.”
  • Stealing an obscure story more meant for Crimebeat!, former Browns WR Reggie Rucker is having his NFL pension deducted by $400/month to repay his charity for money he “borrowed” to pay off gambling debts.
    • His attorney blamed Rucker’s actions on a gambling addiction caused by football-related brain injuries.
      • Prosecutors scoffed at that argument.
      • Any portion of the NFL brain injury settlement he receives will be used to compensate the charity, his attorney said.
  • Jack Del Rio loves him some Beastmode.

Finally, dealing with the fallout from Dr. Bundchen’s revelations, Bill Belichick reinforced that the Patriots comply with all League injury reporting guidelines.

  • “We file our reports in compliance with the league guidelines,” Belichick reiterated Tuesday. grumble grumble “Players don’t come to me and I don’t treat them for injuries. That’s not really my job. That’s what we have medical staff for.”

Canada 150:

June 6, 1944 – The Canadians storming of Juno Beach during the Normandy landings.

Juno Beach was about eight kilometres long, encompassing four seaside villages. The beach was divided into two sectors designated “Mike” and “Nan,” stormed by the 7th Canadian Brigade and the 8th Canadian Brigade respectively. The 9th Canadian Brigade came ashore two and a half hours later as backup.

The German defences at Juno consisted of Widerstandnester (resistance nests) at the seaside villages of Courseulles-sur-Mer, Bernières-sur-Mer and St. Aubin-sur-Mer. These were fortified with concrete and surrounded by barbed wire and landmines. There were also about 20 medium and large gun batteries nearby. Most of the German soldiers the Canadians encountered were either over age 35 or under 18. With just 400 such men, they were well outnumbered by the first wave of Canadians.

Veterans Affairs Canada estimates that 15,000 Canadians from all three branches (Army, Navy and Air Force) landed on D-Day. About one man in 19 who landed on Juno Beach became a casualty (killed, wounded or captured). Among the first assault waves that morning the ratio was closer to one in two. By day’s end 340 Canadians had been killed, 574 wounded and 47 captured. According to the Army’s official historian these numbers were about half what planners had feared.

In total, about 100,000 Canadians played a role in the D-Day invasion and subsequent Normandy campaign. About 10,000 were sailors.

As a The Canadian, I’d like to point out that Rob is the rarest of individuals-he has yakked about The Canada and its history without the slightest hint of the passive-aggressive “LOOK AT US-WE’RE REALLY A GREAT COUNTRY, NO, HONEST!” narrative that the CBC and countless citizens of this fair land have engaged in over the years.

/I didn’t express that as succinctly as I would have preferred
//NOT SORRY!

I just think it’s neat you all call your army “The Army”, instead of The Canadian Army. Shows a lot of pride; like fans who refer to their favorite NFL team (*cough*Steelers*cough*) as We.

“GG Allin’s Early Years-The Video That He Never Wanted You To See.”

“Okay, look. I said I dived into the crowd and got stabbed by one of my fans but what happened was I was huffing Vaseline and some of it got on my sneakers. I had my house keys in my pocket and I landed straight on them. Yeah it hurt. I moved on. [snorts rat poison] Ahhh!!!”

If your closest family members/in-laws are salt of the earth, “the gubnervent is bad”, “why can’t things be the same as they were back in 1970?”, “higher minimum wage?-that ain’t right!” (marches off to his job at Walmart) type people…

/maybe it’s time to move on

Don’t worry about leniency; it is accompanied by an appropriate amount of never ending sarcasm.
