NFL News:

  • Due to infractions over pass coverage contact during drills, the Ravens will lose their final two OTAs this week.
    • Owner Steve Bisciotti & coach John Harbaugh were fined $100,000 & $50,000 respectively.
    • The Ravens and Harbaugh were fined $343,057 and $137,223, respectively, for a similar infraction in 2016.
  • Terrell Owens might be going into Canton, but he’s not going to Canton.
    • He says he will not be attending the enshrinement ceremony on August 4th, and that “I wish to celebrate what will be one of the most memorable days of my life, elsewhere.”
  • Gird your loins, because Julian Edelman is looking at a four-game PED ban.
    • Naturally, he is appealing.
    • According to ESPN, if he were suspended for four games, Edelman would forfeit $470,588.20 in base salary. The Patriots’ first four games are against Houston, at Jacksonville, at Detroit and home against Miami.
    • If you enjoy Patriots schadenfreude, please to head over to WEEI’s page on the story or Patriots twitter.
      • It’s delicious.

Finally, this is delightful: Colin Kaepernick’s legal team wants to depose either or both of Donald Trump & Mike Pence.

  • Specifically, they want to know the level of influence the President may have had over whether Kaep could be resigned during the 2017 season.
    • While testifying as part of the collusion case, several NFL owners said in depositions that Trump factored into conversations about how to handle protests during the national anthem.
  • To borrow directly from PFT:

From the President suggesting in the early days of the protests that Kaepernick should find another country to the President mocking owners for fearing a “nasty tweet” from the President if any of them sign Kaepernick to the President telling Cowboys owner Jerry Jones that the anthem debate is a “very winning issue” for the President to the “get that son of a bitch off the field, he’s fired!” rant at an Alabama rally, the President’s fingerprints are all over this one.

An old band I love put out a new album last week. It’s a different sound, but OMG THAT’S THEIR BEST DAMN RECORD.
Anyway, I’m happy as fuck. Congrats to twbs on the Caps win. And this is how you turn a by-the-book torch song into a peppy, malevolent “Oh yeah, totally my fault. ForGIIIIIIIIIve me, and bye.”

So from Robogames 2017, someone made a 120-lb. version of the butter bot. As a fighting robot. It went about how you’d expect. Actually probably butter. I mean better, sorry.

I guess the real question is will Putin steal Ted Lenosis’ Cup ring?

I haven’t been this happy about the results of a hockey game since I felt up my HS girlfriend on the way home from a Baltimore Skipjacks game in 1983.

What? It was a real team. Sort of.

That sweater also represents your primary activity during that year.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Hahahaha. Well played, Sir.

I haven’t seen men with beards laugh and congratulate each other so heartily since 9/11.

That’s just fucking super.

Never mind. Someone beat me to it. Well done.

Shit, time to reset the “It has been X days since we’ve had a fatwa against us” sign.

Bravo.

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

A rally supporting the police in Jefferson Park? Of course. Of course.

King Hippo

ooooh, your going? Taek pics! Maybe Fredbird will be there!

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

Jefferson Park residents love to insist they’re not being racist when they’re totally being racist so it’s not surprising they’d go hug a cop when they mewl about being disliked

King Hippo

“How come THEY can say it in their rap songs and WE can’t??”

SonOfSpam

“Hey SonOfSpam, what would your version of hell look like?”

scotchnaut

“Sweet! These ‘Las Vegas Knights NHL Champs’ shirts are great!”

Dan Snyder absolutely will try to lift the Cup at the parade and drop it on himself.

SonOfSpam

Even if he could hoist it over his head (he can’t), no one would be able to see it.

Horatio Cornblower

Dan Snyder could stand on the Stanley Cup and still not be allowed on the roller coaster.

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

I think we can seal him inside it

Over/under on the capitals bar bill tonight?

theeWeeBabySeamus

Dunno about theirs, but Imma go get shitfaced right now.

Have a nice night, gents.

SonOfSpam

Remember, if you drink, don’t drive, unless you’re pretty sure you can make it.

Don T

Or rest your head on the right shoulder, only one eye open. That works for about 12 miles. It’s common knowledge.

Horatio Cornblower

What are the odds someone on the Caps fucks the Stanley Cup on the flight home?

Horatio Cornblower

“Authentic melted ice…” So, water?

WCS

I’ve got two toilets full of authentic melted ice.

SonOfSpam

I miss taking a whiz on ice-in-a-urinal. Is that still a thing in bars?

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Sometimes, yeah.

WCS

I’m glad for Oshie. He was never going to win fuck all in Street Louis. The Blues are even more hapless in the playoffs than the Craps.

King Hippo

oh, the poor Ice #BFIB bastards

Gratliff

I want Wilson to drop it, break it, and stab himself in the throat in one motion

Senor Weaselo

Ovi dropping the Cup would have been the most Caps thing ever, right?

scotchnaut

See that? As soon as Ovie lifted the Cup, a monkey fell off his back.

SonOfSpam

Dude, not cool; plus, Smith-Pelly wasn’t anywhere near him.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Hey oh!!!!!!!!!!!!

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

Well fuck, I can’t post this anymore.

Horatio Cornblower

Honestly, if I ever develop super-villian powers I am going to steal the Stanley Cup and hold it hostage until the Whalers come back.

theeWeeBabySeamus

You can have them back.

– PNC Arena mgmt

Horatio Cornblower

Certainly no one in Raleigh would notice they’re missing.

theeWeeBabySeamus

You are not wrong.

King Hippo

all the local/displaced Rangers, Bruins, and especially loud and obnoxious Sabres fans would be right pissed off about it. Everyone else…meh. Good for Hartford, eh?
