A Canadian man-child of indeterminate age, he stays young by selling alcohol at sporting events and yelling at the patrons he serves. Their rage nourishes his soul, and their tips pay for his numerous trips to various sporting events.

NFL News:

  • Given their history as a dumpster fire, it’s perhaps not surprising that the Browns’ stadium is clapped with the same material as the Grenfell Tower fire.
    • not from the initial construction, but from the refit in 2014.

  

  • FOX has a sense of irony, as they have assigned Jay Cutler to cover the Bears’ Week-1 game versus the Falcons.
  • Former Bills WR James Hardy has had his death ruled a suicide.
  • Different day – different Cowboys domestic violence charge: Jourdan Lewis had a pre-trial hearing for a case involving him holding an ex-girlfriend to the floor by her throat.
    • His lawyer is pushing for a one-day jury trial next week, so Lewis won’t miss any camp.
    • As for the team: “Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told reporters that the organization investigated Lewis’ situation thoroughly and were satisfied with his track record of character off the field.”
  • Wes Welker says he’s unconcerned about the long-term impact of all his concussions, and just wants people to remember him as the best point guard the Celtics ever had.

Finally, OJ’s parole hearing was today. It lasted 75 minutes (based on TSN’s coverage) before they broke for deliberations.

  • I enjoyed how the guy who was robbed said “Yes, OJ was there, but he didn’t hit me, and he didn’t pull the gun on me. He was, like, just there.”

I went to lunch before the verdict was announced, and was planning on seeing a movie afterwards. Don’t sue me if I haven’t updated the post; this falls under “I’ve got better shit to do”. And they let him go, effective October. I say we all chip in & get him a new car, so he can drive out of prison. I took the liberty of finding him something he’s used to:

I figured we should spring for the rollover protection, since he’ll have to avoid the Goldman’s & TMZ every time he gets on the highway. Plus, it’s got the fat tires for driving through the Florida swamps in escape search of the real killers.

One thing hate about Game of Thrones is they refused to spend any money on the Direwolves. They are just dogs. Half the time they are just knee high. And they just killed them as many as they could off off-screen.

He said he saw the guy but lost him, but there is an 80% chance he just glanced into a mirror.

He’s hot in the trail of the real armed robbers, though.
