NFL Notes:

  • Gerald McCoy is taking it personally that the Bucs gave his #93 to Ndamukong Suh.  
    • “Them giving the number away, that’s their prerogative, but the respect they showed. It would be different if it was a guy who signed four or five years. This is a one-year deal.”
      • He further added, “It was a sign of respect. I’m one of the best players to ever play in the organization… It kinda shows the respect and how they feel about me.”
  • Byron Leftwich is Bruce Arians’ point-man in what nfl.com calls the “Jameis Winston Reclamation Project”. 
    • The biggest reclamation project launched in Florida since the Everglades Forever Act of 1994, Leftwich was brought in to be the Offensive Coordinator by Arians because of his experience and their history together.
      • Leftwich was a QB under Arians in Pittsburgh, and got to know him well because BIG BEN OWN COACH!
        • When Leftwich retired, Arians got him to go to Arizona & work on his coaching staff.
    • The main goal is to start Winston over from scratch with the new offence Arians wants to introduce to Tampa.
      • Because it appears to be the last chance before the “Bust” label is applied and he’s replaced by a journeyman white QB.
  • NBC, the NFL & Carrie Underwood are being sued for copyright infringement over the atrocious intro song for “Sunday Night Football”.
    • A songwriting team from SoCal is suing over similarities to their song “Game On” which they put on the internet two years ago, and allegedly pitched to Underwood’s management in 2017.
    • Hopefully, the best-case scenario is that these parasites don’t get paid and NBC opts for a different, less-shitty intro.

Because of course the day I buy a pair of bikes and leave them outside so I can clean them is the only day it rains in a month and probably all summer.

If you all remember the last informal DFO get-together in Los Angeles (not the pub-crawl; before that), we all rented small planes from Long Beach Airport and tried to land them on oil tankers moored outside the harbor. Needless to say, that didn’t go so good!

So I dug up an official U.S. Navy training film about this. I hope this helps at the August DFO fly-in.

Hey!!!!! I can still land a fucking plane.
Shit where are the fucking flaps? Dammit!!!!!

theeWeeBabySeamus

Seldom a crosswind? I call shenanigans on that one.

No crosswind for landing on an aircraft carrier that steers into the wind.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Uh huh. I strenuously disagree.

theeWeeBabySeamus

EJECT, EJECT EjECT…..seems to be the general message here.

Remember the late 80’s when white guys with no rhythm were still sort of cool?

No, but I remember the white guys with rhythm that were cool. You know like Phil Collins and George Michael.

Fun story. I led an elementary aerobics exercise to this song for gym class.

Did you face charges or what?

It’s more of a pied piper story. No one really knew what was happening.

I was looking for a proper clip from the movie “Wag the Dog” (1997), but any clip from that movie would do.
