NFL News:

  • Today marked the start of the far-less sexy Undrafted Free-Agent signing window.
    • Anyone not picked over the weekend can sign with whichever team offers them the most money (Dallas), magic beans (Bengals), or acres & a mule (Carolina).
  • Still with the draft, apparently Vegas had a number of bets available on when players would go, and they got wrecked by some of the selections.
    • The Westgate and William Hill sports books both lost money on a draft that turned out to be unpredictable, according to ESPN.
      • In particular, whether Saquon Barkley or Josh Rosen would go first.
        • Vegas bet on Rosen & lost large.
          • “I thought there was no way a team with a 37-year-old quarterback (Eli Manning) would be dumb enough to draft a running back,” Ed Salmons, the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook’s head football oddsmaker, told ESPN.
          • “We tried to look at eight mock drafts of guys we trust,” Salmons said of posting the betting lines 11 days in advance of draft night. “It’s hard to do your everyday job and then also read up on draft stuff when you have a certain group of bettors that are tracking this nonstop.”
            • They’d have been better off asking this question:
“Who the hell is Mel Kiper?
  • Oh, and the Vegas win predictions for each team were released today.
    • The Patriots are highest at 11, followed by the Eagles & Steelers at 10.5, with the Packers & Vikings rounding out the top-5 at 10 predicted wins.
    • They expect each conference’s playoff teams to be:
      • AFC: Patriots (1), Steelers (2), Jaguars (3), Chargers (4), Texans (5), Chiefs (6)
      • NFC: Eagles (1), Packers (2), Rams (3), Saints (4), Vikings (5), Falcons (6)

Not having my laptop made me keenly aware of how much I actually hate what I spend my time on my devices and online doing and yet here I am fucking around all day. Great.

From my flashbulb collection I stockpiled this winter, left to right: a GE #5B bulb (this is as bright as the most powerful off-camera speedlight flash on full, probably brighter); a GE #11, a GE #22B, and a GE #50. The #50 is 5 stops brighter than the #5B and, at night, looks like a handheld A-bomb test.

You can only fire them once, but the #11s (second from left) are my favorite for putting in my ass.

If that shit last night was goalie interference, then this…

Meh, fuck it. Why does NHL even have video review. They’re not good at it.

Senor Weaselo

I’m pretty sure it’s a prop, and the actual result of a video review is determined by spinning one of them prize wheels you see at any carnival or fair.
