NFL News:

Not a lot worth mentioning today, what with Thanksgiving tomorrow & most NFL offices taking today off because they have to work Friday.

  • No Truth Biscuit on Thursday versus the Lions.
    • Trubisky was downgraded from “questionable” to “doubtful” for Thursday’s game on Wednesday morning.
    • In his place, Chase Daniel. who has started a whole two games in his nine-year career – and who hasn’t thrown a live-game pass since 2016.
  • Aaron Rodgers has donated $1 million to the relief efforts in northern California.
    • “I’m partnering with the North Valley Community Foundation and donating $1 million to help with recovery and eventual rebuild of these communities.”
      • Rodgers added his long-time partner, Erin Olivia Danica State Farm, will donate $1 up to $1 million through the State Farm Neighborhood of Good program.
    • The donation is conditional on the firefighters letting his parents’ place burn to the ground.
    • FYI – I typed this post at 11:00AM PT, and an hour later Deadspin tells me it somehow escalated beyond the hyperbole I’d already gone with.

  • Adrian Peterson is in trouble for talking about beating hitting spanking his kids again.
    • He told Bleacher Report in an extended piece on his rejuvenated season that he spanked his son with a belt “the other day”.
    • It’s a problem for the NFL because, even though he served his probation from the original incident, his reinstatement to the NFL after that was dependent upon his agreeing to go through counseling and be a better father to his children.
      • From the League’s suspension letter in 2014: You must commit yourself to your counseling and rehabilitative effort, properly care for your children, and have no further violations of law or league policy.
      • Such an admission might violate Roger Goodell’s vaunted personal-conduct policy.
  • Derek Carr is openly trying to get out of Oakland.
    • How else can you explain his statement that “I want to mess up the draft. I don’t want the first pick.”
      • In the same interview, he said his top priority is to get the team to a place where they both don’t end up with the first pick and get accused of tanking.
    • Meanwhile, at a Supercuts in Sacramento, CA, a homely man in a white track suit laments to the hair technician that the angry red man who babysits him yelled at him and his dad’s ghost won’t do anything about it.

Enjoy your turkey tomorrow, you gluttons. I’ll be at work, listening to the games on the radio & teaching teenagers what the phrase “going from left-to-right across your radio dial” means.

OLD SCHOOL!

I passed a car with a University of Virginia sticker, and honked 16 times.

I really hope they got it.

The guy that hosts my monthly poker tournament has a kid that goes to UMBC. That game was on during one of our games last year. we were going nuts. Then he called his kid and found out that UMBC is a commuter school and that there were probably more people playing cards in his basement than there were kids on the UMBC campus.

Madre Weaselo is making the pumpkin variant of her ricotta cookies. When Hermana Weaselo (who got home this afternoon and is out for a Friendsgiving) heard this, she said only one thing: “Why are you ruining them with pumpkin?”

Mom forgot to take the turkey out of the freezer while I was out of town. It’s not a really big turkey, but it’s still like a rock.

This could get interesting. I need to find the hair dryer.

If you have a big enough container drop it in a warm (not hot) salt brine.

Yeah, I was just wondering if the sink is deep enough, actually. Oh well, not much choice I guess.

Well, not one I’d want to put food into, no.

The alcohol you’re supposed to put into it sterilizes it though! Wait no, that’s college students.

Isn’t the turkey still wrapped in plastic?

Allegedly. But until it thaws I won’t know for sure it’s completely sealed still.

I’m tired.

Also, I almost died today on I-95 just outside of Fayetteville, NC. Fortunately, Dave is still unblemished since his recent repairs. But it was close. Maybe I don’t cruise at 90+ during rush hour anymore?

Yeah, that seems wise.

Senor Weaselo

Considering traffic how did you get up to 90 mph at rush hour the day before Thanksgiving? Possibly even 19 mph!

theeWeeBabySeamus

Myself and four other cars (I was 4th in line of 5) were cruising along. Then we topped a rise, on the other side of which traffic was stopped dead. No movement.

We all kinda jammed the brakes panicked-ly and fortunately managed to not hit one another.

My heart rate went up a little bit though.

Sharkbait

We almost T-boned someone on a 4 lane road who was making a right turn into a parking lot to our left. They decided that pulling into the opposite lane without looking was a good idea.

Hey Beerguy,

Oli Juolevi was a last minute scratch in Utica tonight. Sounds like he’s getting called up

Senor Weaselo

Either that or he had some bad steamed hams.

BrettFavresColonoscopy

Weird to see the Rodgers family start Thanksgiving fights early rather than waiting til there’s almost no time left to then have Aaron lead a comeback that brings the house down.

Don T

Nice reading of the Carr quotes, Rob. That’s a damn fine soft sell for “Fire me, you fucks”. Shanahanian, even.

Wakezilla

Gruden made it clear almost right away that he didn’t like Carr. I for one can’t wait to see Carr traded and do well while the Raiders become the new #ThePauls

Carr gets sent to the Donks, and destroys the Raiders for a decade. Hippo and Moose cum. Hard.

That must have been quite the comeback by Duke. It’s too bad they didn’t quite get there the way that UConn did during the national semifinal game in 2004.
