NFL Notes:  

  • It’s lucky: the knee Le’Veon Bell tweaked on Sunday versus the Dolphins doesn’t show any ligament damage.
    • He’s being held out of practice, and will be a gameday decision on Sunday when they play the Giants.
  • It’s expected: speculation has already started about where Cam Newton will play next season.
    • Current disappointments the Bears, Bengals & Titans are early frontrunners.
  • It’s official: it’s Big Dick Nick time again in Duval.
    • The Jags went 4-4 under Gardner Minshew during Foles’ absence, but dropping their last two fairly badly made the decision fairly easy on the Jags.
  • It’s Crimebeat!: Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Daniel Ross has been arrested on charges of possession of marijuana and unlawful carrying of a weapon.
    • It came out of a traffic stop early Wednesday morning.
    • He is currently on IR with a shoulder injury, and has not played yet this year.
      • Even if he’s cleared, the situation will come under ol’ Roger’s “Behavior Policy”, and if he’s ever signed again he’ll have to eat a suspension first.

Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL:
    • Red Wings at Rangers – 8:00PM | NBCSN
    • Blues at Oilers – 8:30Pm | Sportsnet

  • Wrasslin’:
    • AEW – 8:00PM | TNT / TSN2
    • NXT – 8:00PM | USA

That’s it for me for a couple of days. It’s off to the liquor store before home. I’ll be back Saturday with coverage maps & mild ramblings. See you then.

Pirates of Silicon Valley and PBS’s Triumph of the Nerds were better than any other film or television product ever made about that industry.

Well, let’s see how the Bruins are doing to open the basketball season.

Yes. Well.

There is a new Hardcore History episode out. I know what I’m spending 5 hours on tomorrow

TheRevanchist

My wife got the chicken sandwiches from Popeye’s for her and the kids this afternoon. She said the sandwiches were “good. Big. Not dry.” I talked to her briefly after that and I think she will be going back again. She keeps bringing up those stabbings, though. What doesn’t make sense is that we are talking about chicken. Not beef or pork or unknown sausage or whatever Taco Bell shit is. Why would someone care about chicken?

BC Dick

Wasn’t the stabbing from cutting in line? It’s not about the chicken, it’s about disrespect. They were probably hungry, too. Damn, now I’m hungry. I’d kill for some fried chicken.

TheRevanchist

I’ll come pick you up and we will go to the one in Long Beach near PCH.

BC Dick

Deal. See you in a couple days.

yeah right

That’s probably safer than my Popeye’s which is in Inglewood on El Segundo and Hawthorne.

How long into week 11 game until they say Matthews was in Wentz’s wedding?

Can get 45 to 1 if you think NC State can actually beat Son de Clem Sabado noche.

Chris Jericho does some real dumb shit with his podcast, but pretty much everything he touches in wrestling is gold. This is the best video package I’ve ever seen that doesn’t feature Limp Bizkit for some reason.

If jerry Richardson we’re still alive he wouldn’t think Cam to be worth more than half a horse. Or some wittier way of referencing the quicksand joke from Blazing Saddles.

Today I learned that the delicious tap water in Montreal that I’ve been enjoying for the past week tastes so good because it has more lead in it than Flint Michigan’s tap water, meaning I am probably now more dain bramaged than ever. I also learned that “lead” in French is le plomb.”

A confession: I still log into D***spin every day. Not to read the articles or, even worse, hope that things will revert to the way they were before its overlords decided to run it into the ground. I’m just waiting on them to reopen the comments so that I can remind them what they’ve done… am I a bad person for giving them my page views?

Gratliff

I cackled when they started listing the writer of the new articles as “Deadspin”. I don’t think they’ve added anything since Maidment resigned. May as well just turn it into the content aggregator click farm they always wanted it to be.

yeah right

We went through this degree of separation with the demise of KSK. Those bastards had the temerity to post a girl scout cookie war post and used one of my Komments from the before time to promote it.

I rained down Hell fire on their ass!

Now I just refuse to click on anything UP**** related.

yeah right

And by “we” I meant the royal “we” of course.

Really just trying to wrap my head around how everyone fell for the “Bill Gates is the good billionaire. He is a very generous full-on-rapist” like they didn’t make a movie about what a massive piece of shit he was and the federal government didn’t have to smack him on the head repeatedly during his reign of digitial sociopathy.

Don’t forget that he and Microsoft explicitly and financially supported the Hell out of George W. Bush in 2000 because one of the first things his DOJ Antitrust chief did was settle with MS when Clinton’s DOJ, and Gore’s would have, broken it up into three corporations.

I’m sure that had nothing to do with Steve Jobs sleeping in the Lincoln bedroom at least twice.

Just a reminder that the NRA never have nor will they ever say anything about Philando Castillo being murdered for doing exactly what the law, his CCW training, and NRA rhetoric assert is supposed to be done in those scenarios.

Also, its president is literally a motherfucking traitor who should have been hanged on the parade grounds of Ft. McNair like the last ones the U.S. hanged.
