NFL Nuggets: kind of quiet today

  • As expected, Antonio Brown has filed a second grievance with the NFL over his helmet.
    • He is claiming he should get the same one-year grace period as Tom Brady, and that he was arbitrarily denied.
      • Brady’s grace period was last year, and he now has to wear an approved helmet.
    • The Sporting News has a pretty definitive breakdown of the whole issue, if you are so inclined.
Likely commentist reaction.

Of course, this being DFO I figure half of you all have genuine opinions and stories about this one.

Is this unusual? I’ve seen a lot of places in South Central, sorry SOUTH LA, like this…

I always like to play Hemispheres or A Farewell To Kings at work and wait for one of the twenty-somethings to reluctantly come up and ask, “Who’s this?” , and then watch their faces when I tell them there’s only three of them.

Neal just can’t play anymore. I can’t blame him. He’s been doing literal god-like things on a drum set for 50 years. Alex and Geddy still want to play and tour. They’ll have their own respective solo, maybe together, tours.

Of course, Alex may just off and performance as himself on Trailer Park Boys. Geddy will continue to record and tour. He said so himself. He loves it.

Apparently Carli Lloyd kicked a 55 yard FG at Eagles’ practice today.

Meanwhile, the Bears tried out Gladys the Groovy Mule.

Someone needs to get this woman to sign on the line that is dotted, or in camp for at least a tryout. That wasn’t a line drive, that had some hangtime. If she can do that 80% from 50+ and at least 90% from inside 50, she can easily get paid one or two million dollars to placekick a few balls, kickoff a few times and break the gender barrier.

Yup.

So I have a question. In the first MIB, why was Will Smith originally chasing that alien? Was it ever explained?

…and in further proof that the world sucks, Spider-Man is no longer part of the MCU.

There’s more. Were copyright law prior to 1978 still in effect, Spiderman would now be public domain.

So I bought some ground turkey on Friday and finally made it into burgers today. They taste a little gamey but I haven’t puked it up yet and I’ll be damned if I’m gonna let 3 lbs worth of turkey at $1.66/lb go to waste.

If you want to experiment, try grilled tuna steaks. Put a slice of lemon on them, wrap them in foil, and throw them on the grill.

Ground turkey is way too lean. What you want is Air Turkey. The swirling currents produce a far better bird.

That sounds more like Sea Turkey.

Better yet, SEAL Turkey. Best of all worlds.

I once used to make a Rachel Ray recipe turkey burger that also involved mushrooms, spinach, and oatmeal. Completely forget the proportions now but man it was excellent.

So it turns out one of the players caught in a crime sting has the same name as the Reds’ Ace. What a coincidence!

In a somewhat related topic, what is the antidote to cyanide?

My “Sid” Story: I was going under the knife for a hernia operation when a slightly younger male nurse peered into the surgery room. “Hey, good luck Sid!”, he said. All the folks in the operating room are looking at each other because they know my name is ‘scotchnaut’. I then explain to them that that was my basketball nickname and he was on a junior team when I was a senior. He had to call me by my nickname because that was a thing. Looks are exchanged and then I’m instructed to count down from 99.

Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Baltimore…someone should rewrite the lyrics of this to be “life in an AFC North Town…”

ballsofsteelandfury

This song actually works well if you change it to describe Terry Bradshaw’s retirement:

A Salvation Army Band played
And Children drunk lemonade
And the morning lasted all day
All day
And through an open window he came
Like Sinatra in a younger day
Pushing the town away
Ah
Ah hey ma ma ma
Life in an AFC north town
They sat on the stoney ground
And he took a cigarette out
And everyone else came down
To listen
He said, “In winter 1983
It felt like the world would freeze
Without Balding Terry
And The Steelers”
Ah hey ma ma ma
Life in an AFC north town
Ah hey ma ma ma
And the arm shut down
The evening had turned to rain
Watch the playoffs roll down the drain
As we followed them down
To the bottom
And though he never would wave goodbye
You could see it written in his eyes
As the train pulled out of sight
Bye-bye
Ah hey ma ma ma
Life in an AFC north town
Ah hey ma ma ma
Life in an AFC north town

I fully support AB bitching about the helmet only because Brady got a grace period and no one else did.

As always, FUCK TOM BRADY!!
