Friends, it has come to this. We are On the Edge of the Desert, the annual Summer sports doldrums where finding non-baseball sports viewing becomes an increasingly desperate search for anything resembling competitive activity. "I'll be up to bed soon, honey- I need to see how this last round of
It might be Sunday night, which signals for the return of the grind early tomorrow, but instead of dwelling on that, I'd rather look back on my week and enjoy the many successes that I manged in that time.
Work is work no matter what, but sometimes it can be downright
Remember the Bay City Rollers? They were huge for .... like about two weeks I think, back in the 70s. I think I was in third grade at the time. Maybe it was fourth grade.
But anyway, it is Saturday night. And there's not much going on. Let's do our best
That's right, fellow white devils (and jiminy Christmas, where is Big Black Richard??) - BeIn is doing Norteamericanos a big favour and televising the 2019 Cup of Nations/Afrikan Euros. Action kicked off yesterday with host Egypt (fuck off, Mo Salah) beating a game Zimbabwe squad, 1-nil.
You get a triple-header on
Yep. Another year, another first day of Summer again. Which means I get to experience heat and humidity, and sweat and be uncomfortable, for another four months. Yay.
Last year on the summer solstice, we honoured Summer Glau.

And holy shit, I can't believe that's
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."
Seems like it's going great so far: Giants #1 pick Daniel Jones was booed at Yankee Stadium yesterday. He laughed it off, saying the best way to make them be quiet will be to perform well on the field.
Taking it personally? Giants GM Dave Gettleman, who sounds
Fresh off the Packers brain-trust not seeing eye to eye comes news Cam Newton's timing issues with his passes are a "work in progress".
While not explicitly saying there's a difference between "throwing" and "throwing right", Ron Rivera told The Athletic that Newton's "had a good offseason. He’s
"Pundits" are already hopping on-board the "Audible" question in Green Bay.
Matt LaFleur likes a structured offence.
Aaron Rodgers like the freedom to change plays at the line.
HOW WILL THEY EXIST?!!11?! All they do is talk!
Peyton Manning was inducted into the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame
Not for nothing, but today has never been much more than another Sunday to me. I didn't have the greatest father, or the greatest relationship with him. It's hard to look up to the person who gave you ulcers at age 8, kept you in fear of the dock lock
I'm not actually here tonight. (Some would argue I'm never actually "here" at all.) Tonight is the opening evening of baseball at my beloved Nat Bailey Stadium.
I think it's my 27th season selling beer at that venue. Winewife is kinda tired of the whole deal, what with my advanced
It wasn't supposed to be this way. There are far more knowledgeable soccer doofuses that should be doing this but I volunteered and y'all gonna bathe in my ignorance.
