It just seems like slow death waiting for football season to return.

NFL News:

  • Okay, very serious: Janoris Jenkins’ brother has been charged with “aggravated manslaughter” (first degree) in the death of a man at Jenkins’ house while he is at camp in Florida.
    • The death is being investigated as a possible strangulation/suffocation incident.
    • The NY Post has included a semi-complete rundown of William’s “lengthy rap sheet”, because dog-whistle.
  • Andrew Luck claims he still has no pain in his throwing shoulder.
    • Mind you, he’s been throwing what most sites consider “light passes” and has yet to face game action.
    • It won’t help that he has a front line that makes Seattle’s look like the 1978 Steelers.
  • The headline says it all: CBS thinks Mike Carey was “unfairly maligned” as a rules analyst
    • To quote the head of CBS Sports, “When he disagreed a number of times with the officials, I think he was unfairly maligned on social media and it became a running theme. It was a shame and I think it hurt his ability to be considered an expert in this area, which I don’t think was fair.”
    • To not quote the head of CBS Sports, it didn’t help that Carey came across as brain damaged during long-winded explanations that didn’t seem to go anywhere.

Finally, down cometh the Gingerhammer!:

  • Jameis Winston – three games for assaulting an Uber driver.
    • Technically, a violation of the league’s personal conduct policy.
  • Jerry Richardson – $2.75 million for substantiated claims of workplace misconduct.
    • The fine will be donated to various groups working to promote workplace & racial equality.

Tonight’s sports:

  • CFL:
    • Redblacks vs. Stampeders – 9:00PM | TSN
  •  MLB:
    • Angels at Red Sox – 7:00PM | ESPN / TSN2
    • Astros at Rays – 7:00PM | Sportsnet
  • College World Series:
    • Arkansas vs. Oregon State – Game 3 – 6:30PM | ESPN2
  • WNBA Basketball:
    • Los Angeles Sparks at Seattle Storm – 9:30PM | ESPN2

I’ll see youse guys after the Canadian long weekend. Thanks to everyone covering my bony arse. GONNA GET LIQUORED!

I don’t care what anyone says about Fallout Boy, “Sugar We’re Goin’ Down” is a good song.

Here’s what I’m listening to right now. I’d better go to bed or else I’m gonna end up drinking myself into a coma.

Just realized that what, four, presidents have been shot? (While they were president.) If we didn’t do anything about guns and gun control then, there really is no chance.

Wakezilla

The leaders of other countries need to start mocking America for these shootings

In all seriousness, I think now is just the time to enjoy ourselves. If you’re anything like me, you’ve been quite vocal about the obviousness that the President, at some point, has fucked his own daughter and likely — not proven, just playing the odds here — had a fetus aborted as a result of these actions.

As such, I (or any of you) are definitely going to get concentration camped and there’s no stopping it. So, to come full circle, I think we all just need to enjoy ourselves until Erik Prince’s private domestic security force comes to steal us from our homes.

Is it weird that whenever I see a Nissan 350/370Z, I do this?
/I mean I know the answer is yes

I feel like the fact that Mitch McConnell was stricken with polio as a child is powerful evidence that God is, in fact, real.

But the fact that he survived?

Means God is real, but kind of a dick.

Evening commentists, I hope you are all well. I have a favoUr to ask. We don’t get nice things because you touch yourself at night. Could you abstain so we get Messi v Ronaldo? Please?

Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu–too late.

I’m not changing my plans for later, either.

Wakezilla

Messi v Ronaldo in the quarterfinals and Neymar vs the winner in the semis? I think we could change the timeline if that were to happen

I think they fired Mike Carey because everytime I hear his name I can only think of the way Craig Ferguson used to say “Carey” on the Drew Carey Show.

I found an official t-shirt for DFO (other than a plain white undershirt stained with BBQ sauce)

I thought the official shirt was the HRTN merch!

I’ve got World Cup fever, but this thing goes on for another 2 and a half weeks? I don’t want it to turn into World Cup Bronchopneumonia.

1) When it all goes pear-shaped, will there be a supernova-like explosion or a singularity-like implosion?

B) Living this close to DC, will the pressure wave kill me quick or will I slowly die from the radiation?

B) Depends if you work for a newspaper or not…

Jerry Richardson just got off the phone with his buyer’s agent, telling him to only bid on sure things at this year’s auction due to cash flow issues.

ballsofsteelandfury

So, what Canadian holiday is this?

WCS

Geddy Lee’s birthday?

SonOfSpam

Should be a North American holiday.

Feast of Saint Terry Fox?
