    Sally Jenkins’ tribute to her late father, Dan:

    A new manuscript of a novel my father just finished is still open on his desk — he was working on it on his last day at home before he fell and broke his hip and the congestive heart failure had its final say, from all the bacon and cigarettes. The novel, titled “The Reunion At Herb’s Café,” tells readers where his major fictional characters ended up. (It will be published by TCU Press.) His most famous and true creation was Billy Clyde Puckett, a sort of composite of all the dashing NFLers he knew. I stood over the manuscript this morning in tears, then read a line and almost spit my coffee.

    In the book, Billy Clyde is a retired old man, with two dogs.

    He named them Tom and Giselle.

    :lol:
    Jenkins can be rightfully credited with coining the expression “Dog Ass Jets”. :lol:

    The move to NBC seems to have made him way less annoying than he was at ESPN maybe he was trying to hard to pimp shitty football games.  Also a fresh crop of women to harass.

    Literally did it for the first time a few weeks ago. Compare to the never will bes like Wallach or Meterparel who can’t do any of it competently.
