Since in Canada we call US Thanksgiving "Thursday", I don't really have much to add to the whole foofaraw. I was thankful back in October; now I'm just bitterly anticipating having to go Christmas shopping.
But the nuzzle at my elbow reminded me that we've had Riga five years today. We
Andrew Luck updates:
The Colts are letting him keep his bonus money from the last contract signing.
It amounts to $16.8 million, since he had three years left on the five-year extension he signed in 2016.
There are rumours that Jim Irsay has known for a (little) while
The big, bland, elite news of the day is the Broncos agreeing to a trade for Joe Flacco.
It won't be official until March 13, the start of the league's calendar year.
If I understand the salary cap (Ron Howard voice: "He doesn't"), trading Flacco only costs the
The very good boy in the banner pic is GCHS CH VON ENGELS DESIGNATED DRIVER FROM INDIAN HILL, the 2019 Westminster Kennel Club Best of Breed winner in the Bernese Mountain dog category.
I don't know if that sobriquet is true - most DD dogs are jerks.
The Texans have cut
Mike Florio is already sounding the death knell for the AAF.
Likely because he's a dick.
He claims it needs stars to survive, because low attendance in some markets means that the league needs to make exceptions in order to put butts in seats.
The rumours are that
Whores gotta work: Jason La Canfora is stoking the Le'Veon Bell trade rumours.
He emphasizes "decreasing value" and how the Steelers aren't getting the offers they want because other teams know Bell will hit the market in the spring.
His likely teams for a Bell landing? Miami, Green
Oh boy - The Browns are this year's "Hard Knocks" team.
The Browns aren't especially happy about it, but their only option for avoiding it was firing Hue Jackson, since teams with new coaches don't have to be on it.
My favourite scene will be when Jimmy
Set your PVRs for Thursday, August 2nd - Ravens-Bears is your 2018 Hall of Fame game

Mike Shula is leaving the Panthers for the Giants to be the offensive coordinator.
Dogs are great.
I have much more respect and love for dogs than I do for most humans. Yes, I stand by that statement.
Tonight, live on FS1 beginning at 8pmEST, is the 142nd Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. And you're damn well gonna watch it.
Wanna know why you're gonna watch it?
It's about 11 PM Sunday night, and a young-ish man in a suit is driving home. It was a fairly loud gig, so the car is silent, apart from his occasional thoughts to himself about life, the universe, and everything.
Senor Weaselo: Hmm, so tomorrow I've got that show in the
I hope you are enjoying your weekend. If we can get through it without WWIII starting, I think that'll be the true victory. And that's talk I haven't used since Reagan unveiled the SDI.
Took the doggies to a Bernese Mountain Dog get-together at a lake east of town today.
The Westminster Dog Show from MSG was last night. I should have included it in the previews, because I know three hours of dog porn appeals to many of the commentists.
I've got broadcaster issues I'll rant about tomorrow, but for right now I'd like to regale you with photos of
