    Before Fatty deletes once he learns the ball was tipped:

    Goat of the Week

    Cody Parkey, kicker, Chicago. He picked a brutal time for his 11th miss of the season—and quite possibly his last kick ever as a Bear. What incredible drama, missing the game-winning kick from 43 yards with 10 seconds left in a magical season for the rebuilt Monsters of the Midway. Two things made it hurt more: one, he hit his first attempt, but Eagles coach Doug Pederson called a last-millisecond timeout to ice him; and then of course, the double-doink. Just heartbreaking, but goat-worthy nonetheless…

    Clearly, the miss is on Parkey. He knows it; we all know it.

    I think you’ll be missed, Ozzie Newsome. After 23 years of making every personnel call for the Ravens in their history, you deserve a break. Find 100 golf courses in your beloved Alabama. Play them all in the next 100 days, weather permitting.

    . Saw “Vice.” Really good—particularly the Dick Cheney character played by Christian Bale. I cannot believe how closely Bale resembled the former vice president.

    Is this how you’d phrase it- “the Dick Cheney character?”

     

    . Also recommend “Love, Gilda,” about late comedian Gilda Radnor, who was an absolute phenom in the early SNL days. It’s a 98-minute doc that could have been 68 minutes … but it’s still really interesting about the pressures a talented woman faced in the seventies and eighties in a male-dominated field.

    “Radnor” Couldn’t expect him to know how to spell the last name of this obscure actress.  Also, do you generally recommend something that you found to be 40% too long?

    Jesus, this tastes weird, you should try a piece! :rollseyes:

    Cant wait for his Howard Stern cast review.

    How does King not know the kick was tipped? The information about the ball being tipped was on twitter by about 10 last night. There’s no reason why PK shouldn’t have known and updated his column. Actually, we know why: A combination of arrogance, ignorance and obliviousness.

    He has an editor too, one he praises extravagantly every week. What’s an editor for, if not situations like this?

    I’m sure the 100th best golf course in Alabama is fantastic.

    :lol:

    He told me to hit 100 golf courses in 100 days, but it’s really coming down…thankfully he mentioned to pay attention to the weather

    I wonder if he tried to get in touch w/Cody Parkey.  Would he have put in his column that he was told to pound sand by someone after the lowest point in their career?

    Great point :lol: And I’d guess there are at least a couple that Ozzie might not feel entirely welcome at, despite his resume/(presumed) wealth :ohmy:

    Philip Rivers, the only passer in the Class of 2004 left standing, jogged off the field in his grass-green Charger uniform late Sunday afternoon …

    Foles and Luck are the only two QBs left drafted in the same year, so this is like a 6-2 streak.

    Arians is Ryan without the foot fetish (afaik) right?  I’m sure he’ll coach the ints right out of Jameis.

    I could very easily see Gilda as Roseanne Rosannadanna doing a monologue on some gross habit of Peter King. He has plenty of them.

    Arians went from “I will only come back to coach the Browns” to “I can fix Jameis Winston” pretty quick.

    I’d guess Ozzie wouldn’t be permitted to golf around 1/3 of those courses, for reasons.

    The bigger the phony, the bigger the sports media love-fest.

    Arians is Exhibit A-Z.

    Always enjoy the ‘and he made the kick that didn’t count!’ point of order.  Of course the whistle gets blown before the snap, the defensive guys typically know a TO is coming and/or hear the whistle and adjust effort accordingly, but we’ll ignore that.

    I wasn’t a fan of how the Bears handled the last few plays.  Thought after the Robinson catch they should have gotten up to the line and clocked it, so you have 2nd down and a time out.  Instead they call time, run a first down play then clock it so you just have the one play left no timeout and no room for error in terms of staying in bounds or a short yardage sack.  So the only play is to get it to the end zone and put it where no one has a chance of picking it.  Might not have made a difference but I think you give yourself a better flow of play/down situation if you don’t call the timeout when they did.
