NFL News:

  • Citing “health issues”, Richie Incognito has decided to retire.
    • “I’m done, I’m done, that’s it,” Incognito told The Buffalo News. “It’s been a long career. My liver and kidneys are shutting down. Nothing I can’t restore with some balance, but the stress is killing me.
    • Shady has feelings on the issue:
  • Current & former Raiders are also dropping hints about former punter Marquette King.
    • Cordarrelle Patterson said King was “kind of a diva”.
    • Bruce Irvin wants to line up against him first time out. Likely to discuss dining options in Denver.

  • FOX announced that color-rush uniforms will disappear from the 2018 Thursday broadcast schedule.
    • But teams are still free to keep them as an alternate jersey.
  • Aaron Rodgers is on a philanthropic mission with his girlfriend, race car driver Danica Patrick, on behalf of Starkey Hearing Foundation to give hearing aids to people around the world.
    • They are currently in Asia, which is how this photo came to be.

Finally, the NFL is releasing the preseason schedule tonight on the NFL Network. I assume they’ll have in-depth analysis sometime around 8:00PM.

  • Fortunately, it has been released online already.
  • Logic dictates the regular-season schedule will be released next week, with the Draft being held two weeks from tomorrow.

Also, my Seahawks seat-allocation appointment is tomorrow, which is another sign they’re about to tell us when the games will be played next season.

  • Currently, I sit in Section 306, at the bottom of the green portion of the section. The seats in front of me are in the next price point, and are $20 per seat more expensive.

  • Should I choose to change location, I have two options beyond my current spot will move from my spot on the 10-yard line:
    • To move lower to the field within the same price point, but closer to the end zone, or
    • To move lower to the field, but increasing my price point.

Practically, if I can’t get at least half-way down, there’s no point in moving. I’m undercover, which is a huge bonus in Seattle, and my knees can still handle the climb.

In honor of tWBS trying to watch the second half of Walking Dead and them maybe getting to the fireworks factory. And also Senor being hopped up on Spyro trilogy remake from now to September, when he will then probably go into every little detail about how it’s not exactly the same. (Spyro’s back spines are slightly thicker! This is an outrage!)

theeWeeBabySeamus

Oh shit. I completely forgot about Eugene.

Fuck that guy.

History will look back on Marc-Andre Fleury as one of the best goalies of his era.

He was one hell of a lightning rod for media and fans

/quickly changes Vegas/LA preview prediction
//Nawt LA in 4

Just kidding. I ain’t even started writing that shit yet.

Senor Weaselo

Can we take bets on when you finish? Put me down for 3:21 AM.

theeWeeBabySeamus

That is optimistic.
My Caps preview didn’t even get started until 8:30am this morning.
Well, yesterday morning now.

Senor Weaselo

Damn, I liked the all-nighter angle better.

theeWeeBabySeamus

We’ll see. I napped earlier so 3:21 isn’t a bad bet.
Gotta do some drankin’ and eatin’ first tho.

Wakezilla

Vegas in 6, San Jo in 7, San Jo in 7 over Vegas. . . MAYBE.

Sharks have a pretty good record against the California teams and are playing well lately, thanks to that Glory Boy Evander Kane. There’s just something about that guy that makes Canadians and Americans uncomfortable. Hmmm

A town exclusively populated by the progeny of this man.

That guy Bill is an odd one.

theeWeeBabySeamus

So I’ve tried watching the latest episode of The Walking Dead four times. I’ve seen the first half four times. I’ve yet to see the second half because I keep falling asleep.

This should probably tell me something, huh?

Mr. Ayo
Mr. Ayo

So 2 hours already wasted. Just read a recap and go jerk off.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Does it have to be in that order?

Asking foar a friend.

Mr. Ayo
Mr. Ayo

I’m not your supervisor. Those lost kids are on your hands.

Senor Weaselo

The second half is admittedly the things actually happen half. Whether you give an ass about the things is your discretion.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Yeah, I pretty much know what’s gonna happen. Simon done fucked up.

I just haven’t actually stayed awake long enough to see it yet.
