NFL News:

  • When asked about Le’Veon Bell’s continued absence, Big Ben found the first bus he could:
    • “Football is the ultimate team sport. One person doesn’t make or break you. I’d like to say that the linemen are more important than any skill position player, including myself. This offense is more than just one guy.”
  • Ending his absence is Earl Thomas, who reported today to Seahawks facilities.
    • By showing up today, he becomes eligible for Week-1 pay, which invokes the final year of his $8.5 million contract.
      • Given that they play the Cowboys in Week 3 for their home opener, he had to have known they wouldn’t even consider trading him until after that game.
    • He becomes a free agent after the season.
  • Someone check Doug Marrone’s gatorade, because he’s not talking right.
    • He said he wants, and expects, “zero turnovers” from Blake Bortles this season.
      • Which is a statement that should do wonders to settle Bortles’ nerve, considering during certain points last season, the coaching staff didn’t trust Bortles in key moments not to make a mistake.
  • Pat McAfee has a pretty good story about why he retired from the Colts.
    • Long story short: Ryan Grigson is a huge douchebag, but still maybe don’t always post to social media.
  • Terry Bradshaw sure doesn’t much care for Mike Tomlin.
    • In an interview about the shape of the 2018 Steelers for local radio, Bradshaw went “Hurr…durr…Chuck Noll” while conveniently forgetting he (Bradshaw) had a softer head than Big Ben.

Reminder: It’s this many hours until the regular season starts:

Well, Fozz seems ready.


Tonight’s sports:

  • U.S. Open Tennis:
    • Men’s and Women’s Quarterfinals – 7:00PM | ESPN / TSN
  • MLB:
    • Rays at Jays – 7:00PM | Sportsnet / MLBN
    • Yankees at A’s – 10:00PM | Sportsnet360 / MLBN

Holy crap, other leagues are so scared of football they won’t even broadcast 24 hours ahead of it.

But at least someone loves us.

 

10:00PM FXX. Come for the laughs, STAY FOR THE RUM HAM!

That op-ed is hot garbage, but, also really fucked. Someone is boasting they are part of agroup that covertly imposes their own ideology with zero democratic accountability. Combine that with Woodward’s claim that Mattis ignored Trump’s commands and America is more fucked then we realized.

Also, they’re PROUD of the evil shit they’ve been able to implement. No, the author is no hero (even though that’s how they clearly want to be viewed), but at least Donnie Tantrums is further losing his shit.

It feels like he (or they) are trying to set the stage for Trump’s removal. “He was never a true Republican anyway! And just look at all we got done even having to work around his incompetent ass!”

You can do your registration at the Auto Club if you’re a member. You still have to go to the DMV for the license. If you get pulled over just lie and say you’re just visiting.

We all know that John Kelly probably wrote the Anonymous Op-Ed, but if it somehow turns out to be Ivanka who wrote it, the entire journey will have been worth it.

I think it’s Pence because he’s the only person on this planet that uses the word ” Lodestar”

“On the Road” was published on this date.

I’ve never been a fan at all of the beat generation. I find a lot of their shit was grossly overrated. As a social group, it was basically insanely rich, young white people living out a hedonistic lifestyle that left most of them dead at an early age.

I always found a lot of beatnik literature to be insanely nihilistic. I mean I find the hippie generation to be just as just as vile but at least they attempt to package their shit in a bullshit cause. And at least the fucking yuppies were honest about their greed.

I have no fucking idea where I am going with this other than Jim Irsay paid an obscene amount of money for what is claimed to be an original copy of the manuscript, along with an original printing of the 1939 book Alcoholics Anonymous with notes handwritten by the author Bill Wilson, cofounder of AA. Its so fucking cliche.

And nothing he can do will ever change that he turned into a hated, drunk, abusive prick just like his old man that he hated his entire life.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

I’ve only read The Subterraneans and I wanted to grip a corkscrew in my fist and punch the protagonist in the throat.

Wakezilla

I read and liked On the Road because I read it when I was 17 and during that time, I would go on drug and beer binging throughout BC with my friends. I hooked up with a Mexican lady (not with kid) and (at the time) believed I met my soul mate on the SkyTrain. That shit spoke to me.

On a related note, this is the only book I really enjoyed that I refuse to read a second time because I know I will likely find it cringe worthy

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh
Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

Similar here. I read Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas near the same time and enjoyed it for many of the same reasons; the big difference is F&L was read again and enjoyed. A lot of the stream of conscienceless stuff I just don’t have the mindset to enjoy now.

Col. Duke LaCross

I’m just tucking into Big Sur for the first time. I think it’s going to have to be one of those that you have to read in one shot.

Evenin commentists I hope you are well. I went to costco without my “meds” today. No deaths occurred but I have never seen a line for cheap hotdogs like that before in my life.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Probably best not to go to Costco while high anyway. At least not without a pallet jack….

Costco dogs are pretty good too! Which one did you go to?

So, Mike Pence totally wrote that op ed in the NYT today, right?

It still comes across as, “Sorry he is so blunt about stuff. With that said, we have done lots of good!”

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Interestingly, Pence is the only guy Trump can’t fire.

Redshirt

That’s plausible. If he can reveal himself secretly and convince 8 out of the 15 required Cabinet Members, we’re out of this mess. However knowing Trump he’ll declare Martial Law and we’ll have two Presidents.

But without the Military, he’ll be powerless. And these took an oath of office to support/defend the Constitution. Technically per the Constitution, the powers as Commander-in-Chief will be transferred to Acting President Pence and any orders from President Trump will be null-and-void.

Ain’t nothing happening. Trump is Teflon so long as he has a sitting Russia-GOP Congress.

So Mom’s feeling better and wanted fried clams and beer for dinner tonight. So we’re frying clams and drinking beer together…which admittedly is weird. Well, I’m frying the clams because she still be of the one-armed sort until next week. But she’s putting down an Oskar Blues Pinner like a champ. Man that chick can drank.

And yes, I made her stop taking the pain pills before I let her have the beer. Soory Hippo.

So I just want to be clear, and one of you chuckle fucks has probably already made this observation, but did Goodell partner with Trump to increase NFl viewership? I feel compelled more than ever to watch as many games as I can as an act of civil disobedience!

*Assuming Trout is still here, which I wouldn’t bet on or against with any confidence whatsoever.

King Hippo

It was possible he’d be ready to at least DH by ST (and maybe pitch after the ASB) had he gone under the knife when everyone (sane) knew he needed to. Now he won’t pitch at all, and who knows about the rest. That’s likely 3 or so WAR forfeited in a year they theoretically could contend, with an aging roster whilst the Simmons/Trout window starts to close.

And they keep playing Pujols, which is another guaranteed -2 WAR. I think most franchises prefer not to start a season 5 wins in the hole.
