It was a fairly good run, wasn't it? "The Curse of Thursday Night Football" that had descended last year had lost its way for most of 2018. Well, it's back and it's taking no prisoners tonight. So shutter your windows, bar the doors and maybe explore other entertainment options. There's
You know, the good kind of travesty whereby extraordinary misfortune befalls the easily-hateable team that has experienced so much success. The one that has had the benefit of iffy ref calls for more than a decade now. The team that has an owner that has more than doubled his significant
Boy, did we ever laugh some laughs back there! Nevertheless, it's onwards and sidewayswards for us grizzled veterans of the commenting game. There's always so much more work to do when you're employed in the Merriment Division of the innanet. TO THE GAMES!

The things you learn when you do a bit of homework: rook safety Derwin James is by far the top-rated first year player that plays in the secondary, according to PFF. That rating system also places him 4th
Much like any Giants fan I'll be obligated to watch their eventual embarrassing demise vs. Carolina. But like many folks that like football in and of itself, the Jags/Chiefs game is must-eyeball TV. Also, we've got some pre-NFL appetizers on in the form of EPL action. TO THE GAMES!

Voice of Jack Doyle: It was a Thursday just like all the other ones. I was washing my balls when there was a knock at the door.
Doyle: "Come in, Jones and hand me that towel, would ya."
Much like a Krauthammer into an empty pool, let's dive straight in. TO THE GAME!
Boy oh boy. I wonder how everybody's fave 2nd year phenom qb will do going into the confines of Denver for the first time. This should be a real test for him, right? Well, Johnny Football-Come-Lately's,
He had a couple of angry scars that I couldn't take my eyes away from. I barely knew him but we had this deal going for about a week now and the money was good. I'd play the out-of-towner that made a few bucks off this ugly-looking guy that was
