There's no need for a long introduction or rambling adventure through my past. It's playoff season, baby, and focus should be on the watching, not the whimsy.
I would be remiss, however, if I didn't point out that the Game 1s so far pretty much blew up my predictions from Tuesday
Well, it's been a couple of days since I checked the NFL news feeds. Let's see what's up:
Robert Kraft's lawyers are now citing "irreparable harm" if the video of Kraft making Cheez Whiz in Florida becomes public.
Media outlets are appealing to have the tapes released, but the

As the playoffs start tonight, we wrap up our brief two-day intro coverage by looking at the Western Conference matchups:
Calgary vs. Colorado
Colorado already starts this series mentally down in the eyes of their fans, because they got FUCKED in the Draft
But scrotchnat, you slur through your 5th mimosa, there's two teams playing and four teams remaining. You can't count worth a McFiggins! Well, you got me on the the 'not being able to count' observation but I will counter that I was talking about the number of games left.

Actual good thing: The Steelers converted most of Ryan Shazier's salary to a signing bonus, so he can get paid for the 2018 season right now.
He gets $8.26 of his $8.7 million up front now, instead of in the League's 18 installments.

Today marked the start of the far-less sexy Undrafted Free-Agent signing window.
Anyone not picked over the weekend can sign with whichever team offers them the most money (Dallas), magic beans (Bengals), or acres & a mule (Carolina).
