Not to brag, but I think the high school team my program’s attached to just eliminated the Jets from playoff contention.

NFL News:

  • Hurricane Irma is playing havoc (HAVOC!) with the NFL’s attempts to determine whether the Dolphins – Bucs game will be played.
    • The League has four options – moving to a neutral location; moving the game up to beat the storm; waiting until Tuesday to play the game; or postponing it until later in the season.
      • Postponing seems the smoother option, since both teams have a Week-11 bye
    • Thanks to DFO’s resident meterologists Dr. Rikki & Professor Don_T, we have – from last night’s open thread – some weather models that project the likelihood of Irma making landfall in the southern Florida area:

  

  • 4:30PM ET Update: the game has been cancelled, with no rescheduled date at present.
  • Somehow, the Raiders have ended up in a contract / pissing contest with Sebastian Janikowski.
    • His bad back & $4 million salary means the Raiders want a reworked deal in case he doesn’t last the season.
    • FYI – Janikowski and Tom Brady are tied for the NFL’s longest tenure with their current teams, having both entered the league in 2000.
  • Seemingly rationalizing Vegas’ 1000-1 Super Bowl odds, Christian Hackenberg has been listed as #3 on the Jets depth chart going into Week-1.
    • Vinny Testaverde sits at home, biding his time…

Finally, it appears the Ezekiel Elliott decision will come down Tuesday.

  • As a precaution, the Cowboys are continuing to practice Elliott with the #1 players to keep him up to game speed should the entire suspension be voided.

So, it’s the first day back at school. Luckily, I told all the kids to come tomorrow, so my colleague & I could get set up in relative peace. There have just been a few enquiries so far today.

So, what did I do for my summer vacation?

Well, for starters I went to Europe for a couple of weeks.

  

Then I spent the majority of the summer looking after the dogs, making sure the puppy didn’t destroy the house. That involved lots of adventures and walks,

  

and doing what I could to get an Open Thread together before heading off to the stadium to sell beer. Until preseason started, it looked a lot like this:

  

But then once FOOTBAW!!! returned, even if just the preseason form, it was more like this:

  

Anyhoo, welcome back to school, and welcome back football.


Tonight’s sports:

  • U.S. Open Tennis:
    • Quarterfinals – 7:00PM | ESPN / TSN

Adding this to the queue of things to watch:

American Experience: The Mine Wars

At the dawn of the 20th century, coal was the fuel that powered the nation. Yet few Americans thought much about the men who blasted the black rock from underground and hauled it to the surface. The Mine Wars tells the overlooked story of the miners in the mountains of southern West Virginia — native mountaineers, African American migrants, and European immigrants — who came together in a protracted struggle for their rights. Decades of violence, strikes, assassinations and marches accompanied their attempts to form a union, culminating in the Battle of Blair Mountain in 1921, the largest armed insurrection since the Civil War. The West Virginia mine wars raised profound questions about what freedom and democracy meant to working people in an industrial society.

I’ll go first — looking at a browns logo head on (image is literally just a head on shot of a empty browns punter helmet )

I don’t know, looking at the disembodied head of a bird of prey is pretty intimidating. The disembodied head of anything, really.

It looks like it has seen my internet history before I’ve deleted anything and it does not approve.

The strokes that make up the Seahawk, look like something that goes on a tramp stamp from an Ed Hardy fan

What’s the point of the twisty thing at the end of a joint. Why isn’t it open like a cigarette?

The best part about Twitter roasting Whitlock is the fat fuck will burn for quite a while.

Senor Weaselo

Any particular reason? Or because it’s Tuesday?

He had a white guy in blackface pretend to be Kaep on his show. Lavar Ball said the only think Whitlock is capable of talking about is snacks. Someone posted a fat raccoon reaction gif to describe Whitlock and I cracked up like a goofball. Good times.

Well, at least we can hope both teams drop dead of exhaustion in Boston.

God willing.

Unfortunately they didn’t. And more unfortunately, Team Apple Watch won in the 19th.
