NFL News:

  • The Bill Simmons Media Group has lost its president due to sexual harassment claims.
    • Eric Weinberger, a former executive at NFL Network, has been accused of sending “several nude pictures of himself and sexually explicit texts” to Jami Cantor, who is currently suing the Network.
      • It’s unclear if this is the same lawsuit that also brought down Donovan McNabb and Eric Davis.
    • At this point, it’s got to be pretty well understood in the 21st Century that saying – out loud – that a woman was “put on earth to pleasure me,” is not going to sound the way you meant it when said out loud in a court room
      • Then ‘allegedly’ pressing a crotch against a woman’s shoulder and asking her to touch it just guarantees a future legal defeat.
    • In conclusion:

  • In other news, the Bill Simmons Group has leadership that goes beyond Bill Simmons simply yelling “I NEED 10,000 WORDS ON HOW GOODELL’S FUCKING THE PATS AGAIN!”
  • Marshawn Lynch reworked his contract to help the Raiders & new teammate Doug Martin.
    • It lowered Lynch’s base salary against the cap, but gave him more guaranteed money on the season.
    • It also hopefully gets us closer to the long-anticipated DFO spinoff serial “All About That Action”, starring Beastmode & The Muscle Hamster.
  • Apparently, the Colts tried to trade into the #1 overall pick, but the Browns weren’t interested.
    • The sticking point appears to be the Jets being unwilling to part with a future first-round pick, which actually makes sense on both sides.
      • The Browns absolutely should demand it, given their current prime location.
      • The Jets absolutely should keep all their #1s because they will need them.

Finally, get those medical cards out if you’re going to San Diego, because you can now get your medicine courtesy of “Real Wellness by Ricky Williams”.

  • Quoting from NBC7 in San Diego,
    • RW has six cannabis-based wellness products derived from Williams’ own formulations that can be incorporated into daily health routines.
      • “It’s a dream come true for me to merge my passion for healing and my fascination with plant medicines with my entrepreneurial spirit. Cannabis has played an important part in my healing journey, and I feel a responsibility to share what I have learned in the process,” said Williams, RW’s founder and brand leader.
    • RW’s product line is available at 11 dispensaries in San Diego.

Oh, hey. Speaking of disgusting snacks, Trader Joe’s sells a milk chocolate Cinnamon Toast Crunch bar. I’m not paying two bucks to see if it’s any good though.

Just in case you were curious (THIS DOES NOT RUIN THE JOKE!):

Three Japanese acoustic locators 1930; Three Japanese acoustic locators, colloquially known as “war tubas,” mounted on four-wheel carriages, being inspected by Japanese Emperor Shōwa.

It’s clearly worked. There’s no military operation against the Kaiju that doesn’t start with, “WWWWWOOOOMMMPPPPP WWWOOOOOOOOOMMMMPPPPPP.”

The Chinese were using the “war sad trombones” and we know what happened in Nanking………

During the 1930’s the British built several types of experimental acoustic locators, as they had been victims of aerial night bombardments by zeppelins during the First World War and were looking for ways to detect aircraft engines at a distance. While also working on an electric “death ray” they discovered that it didn’t kill anything, but the death rays reflected back from distant objects which could be ranged and detected. This is how radar was developed.

Thought about picking up Jake Guentzal up off the waivers tonight because I had a hunch. I decided I couldn’t risk it and of course he breaks out of his slump with 3 points tonight.

Nothing worse than having a hunch about a guy and then being right, but not acting accordingly.

Does this guy have a wall oven in his den? I can’t see the floor but I guarantee you that it’s avocado shag carpeting. And isn’t that Mel Cooley? What’s he going to do with Miss Giant Knockers, impress her with his cooking? Actually, he probably is, that’s why he has an oven right there. But still, I like the big tits but I don’t care for anything else here, which is why I don’t have a Thermodor oven and nobody else does and that’s why they’re out of business, because of advertisements like this that just confused people. Let this be a lesson to you for all your future ad campaigns for major appliances: show the big titties and keep the old queens out of it.

He is a moron that decided to go to an insanely expensive, fake school to wrap his drug usage into a faux aura of spiritualism and now he has figured out how to sell that shit to even dumber mother fuckers…

oh, and every year I do 2 or 3 entries in my office pool, which usually has about 200 total. #1 is always “logic” #2 “insanity” #3 a mix, but with my “NC State best case scenario.”

This year, my #2 “insanity” entry is in 2nd place, 4.5 points out of 1st. There are upset bonuses. Had Cincy not blown a 22-pt lead AND Houston choked AND UM hit that miracle shot (1st place also had both NV and UM in S16), I would be ahead by like 40 points and almost a sure winner.

I could still still win, so long as Clemson beats Kansas at least (this bracket has Nova winning, and Clemson in the Final Four).

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

My love of #5 seeds has me tied for 10th place in mine. If Gonzaga sneaks into the final four I could actually win the whole thing.

theeWeeBabySeamus

UVa losing killt me early. When you’re sitting within striking distance of the top, but have about half the PPR of those ahead of you (and behind you too!!!) it ain’t hard to spot the pattern.

My free fall to (almost) the bottom on Sat and Sun was a thing to behold, tho.

I’m really disappointed with Mr. Williams. The fact that he didn’t call his company, much less one of his products, “Ricky’s Sticky Icky” not only offends me as a markter, but as a person who writes on an NFL dick joke blog from his parent’s basement.
