NFL Nuggets:

  • Tom Coughlin, pictured above, has opinions on players that skipped this week’s voluntary workouts.
    • Borrowing from ESPN, Coughlin stated
      • “We’re very close to 100 percent attendance, and quite frankly, our players should be here building the concept of team, working hard side by side, constructing our bond of togetherness, formulating our collective priorities and goals.”
      • “Success in the NFL demands struggle. Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish and insensitive to the real values of team. The hard work that many try to avoid is the major building block for the development of an outstanding football team.”
      • “It’s not about rights and privileges. It’s about obligations and responsibility, and the question is: Can we count on you?”
    • The NFLPA has used the twitter to remind an old man that words have meanings:

  • The AAF bankruptcy filing clocked in at over 1100 pages.
    • The biggest creditors are:
      • MGM – $7 million
      • CBS – $5.19 million
      • ASU – $1.2 million
      • plus a law firm & ad agency for $4.6 million combined.
  • The NFL schedule makers seem to think they kinda, mighta, screwed over Tampa Bay.
    • They go through a 49-day stretch where they don’t play a home game.
      • From Week 3 to Week 10.
    • On the bright side, you can’t catch MRSA from what you don’t touch.

Finally, the Draft is one week from today. We will have a live blog hosted by (name unavailable), so make sure to come by & join us as we laugh at how the Raiders waste their Khalil Mack bounty.

  • There are dozens of mock drafts out there for you to peruse, but I have no interest in them – mostly because I am not a monkey flinging shit at a wall for my network bosses.
    • I fling shit for myself, dammit; not for internet profit!

Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL:
    • Capitals at Hurricanes – 7:00PM | NBCSN / Sportsnet (Game 4; Caps lead 2-1)
    • Blues at Jets – 8:30PM | USA / CBC (Game 5; tied 2-2)
    • Golden Knights at Sharks – 10:00PM | NBCSN / Sportsnet (Game 5; Vegas up 3-1)
  • NBA:
    • 76ers at Nets – 8:00PM | TNT / TSN
    • Warriors at Clippers – 10:30PM | TNT / TSN

    • College Baseball:
      • Texas at Oklahoma State – 8:00PM | FS1

Every day we rage against the dying of the light, to avoid becoming the old man everyone points at. DON’T BE OLD!

On the bright side, finally ate at the Mad Greek. On the other hand, ate there for lunch and dinner.

I want to live more than a few more years, although …

You pose an interesting conundrum.

Woodball Raiders up 35. Let’s see if they try to blow this one.

I have a quandary. I randomly wandered back onto Bumble and almost immediately matched with someone from law school (upper class but younger than my old ass). But I didn’t hear from her within the day and I’m sure there are a million reasons why not. But it’s not like I match with … anyone … on dating apps as it is because I’m an elitist asshole and I’m pretty sure that I don’t ever want to date anyone I’d meet on one or idk maybe ever. I’m weird and a little insane. So anyway today’s been a good day overall and I’m trying to decide whether to hit her up on Facebook messenger in general and just say hi. She doesn’t use it often, like months at a time, and the last time she posted something was about losing a pet a month or two ago. So that’s nice. But she was cool and I was into her then and still am (she’s different from the instathot who’s … Oh god. Why). Anyway. I was advised to just say hi and maybe have coffee or something. I’m feeling good but not that good get. I should’ve bought booze. Then I would’ve done something stupid like I always do.

“I didn’t hear from her within the day…”

Settle down. Give it a couple of days, maybe even the weekend since this is, you know, Easter and people have plans. If you hear from her, great. if you don’t, well, there’s your answer.

I think they expire after 24 hours if the woman doesn’t message (they have to message first). Tbh I probably don’t know what I’m talking about.

Horatio Cornblower

No reason.

Do you need one?

I edited your image address so that everyone could see this.
Including me.

You’re doing the Lord’s work.

That’s some quality underboob.

Goddamn Silicon Valley has been wasting its time on social media shit instead of inventing the means to create women like her.

Listening to old Dick Cavett shows with Groucho Marx. Charming and funny.

Horatio Cornblower

Cavett’s a genius. very funny.

Fronkenshteen

He really is. What an interviewer. I wonder how his style would fare today? Now I’m on Bob Hope describing some USO misadventures.

Cavett and Janis Joplin is one of my favourites.
Sadly, she was dead a few months later.
