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:

  • Earl Thomas is not attending voluntary off-season workouts.
    • The Seahawks won’t be concerned until June, and the mandatory veterans workouts are held.
      • If he doesn’t show for those, he could be fined, and that sets the stage for a training camp holdout.
        • This year, the maximum fine amounts are $14,070 for the first day, $28,150 for the second and $42,215 for the third day, for a total of $84,435.
        • Teams can choose to waive the fine, or not impose the maximum.
  • Booger McFarland will be joining Jason Witten on the Monday Night broadcast.
    • Booger will be in a “field analyst” role, whereas Lisa Salters will continue to serve as a sideline reporter.
      • Think Tony Siragusa from FOX broadcasts.

It just makes money off claiming to be a civic asset without being asked to provide proof. If football weren’t an American obsession, the team would have been thrown in the recycling bin long ago.

Good people can cure dysfunction. Smug men who show only cursory concern for humanity cannot rinse off their deplorable stench.

  • In the best example of irony I will teach all week, Jim Irsay purchased the founding document of Alcoholics Anonymous this week for $2.4 million. That’s over 343,000 6-packs of Bud Light.
    • He will both host the document at AA’s world headquarters in New York, and will send it on a naational tour to various meetings across the country.
    • The story notes Irsay attended his first meeting over 25 years ago.

Finally, if you hate yourself, Peter King has a short treatise on his decision to leave the MMQB, and how he expects it to continue going forward after his departure.

  • Here’s a taste:

You’ve been with me through some opinions you hate, through over-Favring and excessive Bradying, through some bad poetry, through a Westin-lobby-near-fistfight, and even through a little bit of football thrown in there.

  • Nothing’s said about whether the staff have to keep drinking Allagash White or if they can switch to another brand.
  • THANK GOD it’s not because of a sex scandal. The mental images of that alone might sterilize half of American males.


Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL:
    • Capitals at Penguins – 7:00PM | NBCSN / Sportsnet
    • Predators at Jets – 9:30PM | NBCSN / CBC
  • NBA:
    • Celtics at 76ers – 6:00PM | TNT / TSN2
    • Raptors at Cavaliers – 8:30PM | TNT / TSN
      • a mercy killing awaits the Raptors
  • MLB:
    • Twins at Cardinals – 8:00PM | ESPN / TSN2
      • pour one out for Yadier Molina. After “groin surgery”, he’s out for a month.

  • WWE:
    • Monday Night Raw – 8:00PM | USA / Sportsnet360

Hopefully, Winnipeg can work their magic. DON’T WAKE DECILITRE!
