NFL News:

  • Le’Veon isn’t “officially” on the trading block, but at least the Jets have called about his rights.
    • The Steelers can rescind his franchise tag & trade him, but would need something valuable in return, since they’d only qualify for a third-round compensatory pick that they’d immediately lose because of all their other free agent signings.
    • nfl.com speculates about five possible landing spots for Bell, each with their own unique, some might say “idiotic” logic:
      • Houston – they need help, but “Belichick disciples” don’t pay large for free agents
      • Indianapolis – cap space & picks
      • NY Jets – “win now” mode
      • Miami – LOL Doplhins
      • Seattle – they can ship Earl Thomas the other way, plus Rashaad Penny, the kid they drafted #1.
  • So Everson Griffen went full Barret Robbins prior to the Bills game, minus the Tijuana, and that’s why he didn’t play in their debacle against the Bills.
    • He is currently under medical supervision in Minneapolis.
    • Deadspin has the full synopsis and it’s actually quite sad, to the point where I almost feel guilty for the Barret Robbins crack. Almost.
  • It’s 2018 & the #MeToo era, so it seems about time that the NFL should have an all-female announce booth.
    • Andrea Kremer and Hannah Storm will provide commentary and analysis for Amazon’s live streaming coverage of Thursday Night Football.
      • Prime members will get their choice of the FOX broadcast, Hannah & Andrea, a Spanish-announce team, or the UK announce feed.
    • Honestly, I wish they had them on the SAP button so I could mute Joe & Troy.
  • After last night’s four Roughing the Passer calls, the League has tallied 34 so far this year, versus 109 for all of 2017.
    • The League is having a Competition Committee phone conference next week to “discuss” the rash of calls.
      • It is expected new “interpretations” will emerge on the body weight and “scoop & slam” issue.
    • While he’s still active & healthy, the Mayor of Houston weighed in:

•   That’s it, then. Change is a’coming!


Every once in a while, I like to look at the alexa.com site stats, because I need to know I’m not alone in the universe. Anyway, aside from noting we are inching closer to being the 350,000th most popular site on the web, I quite enjoyed their breakdown of how people come to the site via search:

It’s like they know us. FYI – here’s a link to the term I know you’ll want to read. I’ll leave it to Moose & Seamus to take care of the other one.


Tonight’s sports:

  • MLB:
    • Yankees at Rays – 7:00PM | ESPN / TSN
    • Astros at Jays – 7:00PM | Sportsnet
    • Dodgers at Diamondbacks – 10:00PM | ESPN / TSN
  • NHL Preseason:
    • Blue Jackets vs. Sabres – 7:00PM | NBCSN
    • Canucks at Oilers – 9:00PM | Sportsnet1

By the way, the Flyers have a new mascot, and he apparently lives in Marc Trestman’s windowless van:

    

His name is “Gritty”, and there’s a 100% chance Shayne Gostisbehere takes him out sometime this season.

  • WWE:
    • Smackdown – 8:00PM | USA / Sportsnet360
      • Maybe Brie Bella won’t hurt someone else tonight.

DOUBTFUL!

Man, I got no friends. At least none that are off on Thursday afternoon and/or want to go to The Coliseum.

I can get two tickets 11 rows up from the corner of the end zone for $160 each, or I can get a single for $190. Or I can sit in upper upper reaches for $60 and listen to the game on an AM radio. This is also known as “the stabby zone.”

Anybody interested in a $160 ticket to see Jared Goff and Kirk Cousins in person? Let me know soon (like in 10 minutes) because price creep is setting in.

BrettFavresColonoscopy

I would but I’m out of town and that’s not worth the price.

From an Editorial in the local newspaper (almost verbatim) (before you ask, not written by me):

I was at a convenience store buying a bottle of juice when the cashier asked if I wanted a plastic bag for my one bottle. As soon as I said yes, I heard a voice behind me say “That’s bad for the environment.” I turned around saw a woman in reading glasses looking at her phone. I started to say “Actually, its….” and the lady responded “Whatever. I’m not going to start with you.” and went back to her phone.

Judgmental. Dismissive. With a pinch of demonizing.

You see, its Lib-iots like this that give Progressive Patriots like you all a bad name. Maybe the guy was going to reuse the bag to pack his lunch. Maybe he was going to collect fruit to give to the homeless. We don’t know because she immediately dismissed his argument without giving him a chance to defend himself.

I have a feeling people like this would call for a boycott of “The Flintstones” due to insensitivity because its insinuates that heterosexual family units can have a gay old time.

And if you think I’m reading things from nowhere, that may be, but at least you know how Conservatives from Ohio think whenever we’re not drinking the blood of the innocent or Sieg Trump-ing. I only wrote one post on an Internet discussion board about this . This guy wrote a half page editorial about this in the Cincinnati Enquirer.

herodotus450
herodotus450

Yeah but… about the only thing more annoying than accosting random people about their bag choice is complaining about being accosted for your bag choice to a newspaper. What a delicate little snowflake. Why does he expect the world to revolve around him? Why can’t he go out there and work hard for his bag instead of expecting one to be given to him for free? And the bit about the phone seems all to convenient a fit to the narrative of hippie young people with their faces in their phones.

Redshirt

Decent point. I’ve written to the Enquirer about the Reds becoming a Quadruple-A team, Marvin Lewis saying real fans should stay the course while they suck and about Deflectin’ Donald Trump. I haven’t written to the paper because my feelings were hurt by someone.

herodotus450
herodotus450

Definitetly seems like an old man thing to do, complain about things to the paper. Something I’ve begun to notice is that the same rhetoric comes from both sides, about how they are being persecuted by the other side. Environmentalist/PC police on the left are killing Christmas! Big Businesses/the 1% are exploiting the poor and oppressing minorities!
Both sides seem to think the other side represents the rich and powerful.

Redshirt

In a way, both sides are controlled by the rich and powerful. Republicans have Businessmen. Democrats have Hollywood stars.

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

Both have both.

The Clintons through the years and others like them “Business Democrats” have huge business backing. Both parties state governments are big on huge corporate tax breaks and give aways to get companies like Amazon to move there, then they wind up trashing the budget paying for services to the low paid employees and infrastructure needs of said corporations. WHAT A COUNTRY.

Wakezilla

Democrats absolutely have business people. Zuckerberg and Mark Cuban ring a bell?

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

Exactly; just the type of made up story that makes people such as Redshirt come in their pants for the stereotype “See how libtards are!” No doubt there are those like this, but they are not nearly as common as Fox news would have the “people” believe.

One marvelous thing about being an adult is the peace of mind to say to anyone “Mind yer own business, huh?” The rest of the anecdote smacks of made up culture warmongering.

That’s still how the British describe the Indian and Chinese coolies that replaced African slaves – changing the name of the institution but maintaining the effect, meaning that the British still had slaves into the 1970s.

Not that we’re any better. We just renamed slavery in the 13th Amendment as prison labor and it’s thriving quite well.
