I sat on a jury years ago, 2nd degree attempted murder case. One day the defendant wore sneakers with his suit to court. It was that day I knew he was guilty.

I’ve been researching but I still don’t totally understand how open threads are titled. So, a date stamp should be adequate? I mean, July 25th? Can I say that?

Admittedly, that was forced.

Anyways, we’re hitting the dog days of offseason here. Still, we got Your Papa John’s Presents NFL News Update

  • Jerruh has made it clear that Cowboys players will “stand at the anthem, toe on the line” and does not support players staying in the locker room.
    • Do what you want, Wild Thing, my straight-from-Big-D manager says he ain’t coming back to the NFL anytime soon until you get those [I wouldn’t say it but Papa John would] under control.
  • Khalil Mack will be sitting out as Raiders camp kicks off.
    • Not a surprise as he has not participated in any team activities as he awaits an extension on his rookie contract (this is his final year and he’s slated to make $13.8 million)
      • RAMMIT’s Aaron Donald, the reigning NFL DPOTY, will also be sitting out (also in his final year, he’s slated to make just $6.9 million).
        • Considering ARI seems to want to model their offensive line after the Seahawks, I’m all for Donald holding out until Christmas, when the two teams are done facing off.
  • Jim Kelly has donated a custom chopper to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    • I have no idea why he did this or what the relevance is to the HOF — but I think Jim Kelly can do no wrong in anyone’s eyes at this point.
      • So naturally:
  • And to finish on a high note, Steelers’ Ryan Shazier and his fiancée are expecting their first child.
    • As a new dad myself, let me just share a picture of young Blaxito.

Ok, I’ve gotten what I wanted out of this post so here is Your Angry Orchard Hard Cider Tonight’s Viewing Options Presented By TV Guide

ESPN – Boston Red Sox at Baltimore Orioles. From Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
ESPN2 – Manchester City vs. Liverpool. From MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
CW – Burden of Proof (Pilot) — A high-powered attorney returns to her rural hometown to get a major pharma client off the hook in a case involving some sick high school girls, but discovers there’s much more than meets the eye.

Wonderful to have seen the lovely and talented LCSS tonight in the flesh.

Food and drink type things, they did fall.

yeah right

When my “number one” lead on day shift takes vacation I fill in by working 10-12 hour days.

Granted I only get paid for 8 but that’s my job as boss.

I got my ass KICKED while he was on vacation but next week is my turn.

Hey Low Commander, want to help with a “Boots on the ground” San Diego style? I’ve got both my girls and all 3 of my granddaughters and we are heading to gentler climes.

Know a good brewery in the “frontier?”

I’m staying on Midway near the Sports Aroma, Seaworld and planning a trip to Phil’s Barbecue.

It’s payback time!

On a related note to one of my first posts of the night, here’s Meghan McCain, heiress to a $300M fortune, losing her shit when the rest of The View cast clap for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s platform because it’ll knock a few million off her fortune.

Ice Liouns President, Trevor Linden was politely fired today. I’m going to guess there was a power struggle with he and Benning as to where the team would go?

This Jon Bois thing is consuming my whole brain right now. I am using it as an excuse to drink copious amounts of alcohol.

What the hell is this? I click on the link, clicked twice to scroll down and then it turned into a calendar.

Either way, in the year 111767, there will be no footbaw.

It might be weird on mobile.

Congrats on the procreating Blax!

Speaking of Capitals free agents, Tom Wilson looks pretty old to still be an RFA

WCS

He’s actually pretty damn funny.

Brooks Orpik played for the Caps last year. They traded him to Colorado at some point after the season. Colorado bought out his contract, 4 mil I think, and released him. Caps just signed him to a much cheaper one year contract.

WCS

Brooks Orpik cannot be killed by conventional weaponry.

When negotiating the trade Joe Sakic said “Brooks, or pick,” and by the time he realized the problem…

I know most of you shit on the MLS, but it really is improving. I was thinking about the Whitecaps’ all-time MLS starting XI today (2009-present) and if the Caps were to field this squad in 2018:

Camilo – Montero
Davies – Reyna – Morales
Laba
Harvey – DeMerit – Waston – YP Lee
Ousted

They still wouldn’t win the Cup. They’d probably lose in the semis, possibly the finals. This would be a solid and entertaining team though.

What is MLS? Is that like Lou Gehrig’s Disease? I’m glad these people are getting better though, let’s keep hoping for a cure.

Seriously I have been reading this in bits all day long and I’m still not sure if I’m even halfway through it.

When you said “Jim Kelly donated his chopper(s)” my mind when somewhere totally different.

Holy shit, The Onion! I’m dying over here.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s platform was on Hannity recently and her agenda was treated as a negative. It’s wild to me that there are a lot of people who live in Canada’s pants that are against a lot of these things.

Fox News doing everything it can to get this woman elected despite the DNC’s best efforts

HA HA HA Ha!

I get the LGBTQ, but what is the IA+ part? Is that something that Fox made up?

A is asexual. I is intersex, which I believe is people who show visible signs of maturing into a non-binary gender, such as partial hermaphrodites who receive assignment surgery at a young age. + Is gamers.

D’awwwww, look at little Blaxito. How’s he supposed to be good at footbaw when he’s sleeping and not looking at any game film? SMH. Typical Millenial.

Better bladder control than…
[yells to homely ’40s secretary who loves me but I’ll never love her:
“Margaret, gimme the name of a football player who shit or pissed himself. I need it now!”]
Better bladder control than Jimmy Graham!
[Hmm that’s not right.
“Dammit Margaret, he was a basketball player. You made me look like an idiot!”]

He also can catch fish. A lot of people forget that.
