    Learned from a football podcast that Mike Renner from Pro Football Focus is a contestant on this season’s The Bachelorette

    Tiny weather lady pics are much better that Bachelorette contestant pics…Plus I can’t see anybody coming up with a good song parody about that guy.

    Why is the right foot on the left?

    Larry’s fucking lazy and does poor work? He has a low IQ? Larry suffers from some type of un-diagnosed dementia? He doesn’t really understand the difference between left and righ?

    Could it be a commentary on man’s inhumanity to man?

    They actually look more like those Dr. Scholl’s inserts that you use scissors to cut into the right size.  Perhaps he sat on a couple of those and it’s a metaphor for sizing up the team.

    I was scheduled for a colonoscopy on Thursday at 1 p.m. in West Paterson, N.J. If you’ve had one, or if you’ve had any intestinal procedure, you know that the day before such an internal snaking you’ve got to be, well, cleaned out. One problem for me: On Wednesday, I was covering the Vince Young pro day workout at the University of Texas in Austin. I was supposed to begin colonoscopy prep at 1 p.m. Wednesday—when the pro day was in progress. My flight was due to leave Austin three hours later, and I was scheduled to get home by 8. In other words, I was not going to have the home-bathroom advantage for a good portion of the internal preparation.

    I took the first of the preparatory medication (and believe me, that’s putting it very nicely) just before the three-plus-hour flight took off from Austin. I was in fine shape until maybe 40 minutes from landing in Newark, when the captain came over the intercom and said, “Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve been told by the tower in Newark that we’re going to have to slow things up a bit because of traffic into the New York area. They’re putting us into a holding pattern, and we’re going to head over to Pennsylvania to circle …”

    AAAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHH!

    Deep breaths. Long, deep breaths. Bumping around for 45 minutes. An eternity. Hold on. Just hold on. You raised two kids not to be ax murderers, you can survive this. I may have to get up and brawl with this flight attendant in a minute because of the seat belt sign.

    Out of the holding pattern. Seven or eight minutes later, like the God of Aviation knew what was happening inside me at that moment, the captain came on and said, “Ladies and gentlemen, we’re on our final approach into the Newark area.

    Once off the plane, I was as dignified as was humanly possible. I brisk-walked to the men’s room, found a stall, and … well, the rest is colonoscopy history.

    66% increase yesterday over the previous couple days, maybe someone else isn’t going anywhere soon either. Then again, that was 3 to 5, so nowhere near enough.

    I think this guy stopped taking his meds. This offseason he’s renegotiated a contract, retired, unretired, been released and:

     

    The alleged victim told TMZ Incognito threw a tennis ball for no reason and followed up by throwing a dumbbell at him as well. Incognito was allegedly “rambling about the government and screaming at the man to ‘get off my f*cking playground’” while this was going on.

    It’s up to the teams to impose discipline? If Kraft had balls (spoiler: he doesn’t), he would implement a policy fining anyone on the field who doesn’t show the anthem and flag “appropriate respect.”

    Camera guy kneeling to get a close-up of JJ Watt’s stoic face? Fined.

    Sideline reporter on his cell phone during the anthem? Fined.

    Visiting team guests yukking it up with each other? Fined.

    There is probably a 85% chance Incognito will kill himself of somebody else (and himself) in the next 5 years. An outstanding death pool candidate if your into that type of stuff. He’s neurologically equivalent to  a 80’s WWF wrestler. He’d probably be exactly the same (just with less money) if he never played a down in the NFL.

    It keeps them from having to talk about head injuries I suppose. I would challenge any of those 32 billionaires to an IQ test with just about anyone on this board. No wonder they wanted no part of Mark Cuban owning a team. Say what you want about the guy but he would be one of the few out there saying how stupid this was.

    Only used days I wrote down the actual number, the intermediate +3s didn’t always add up (they may have been correct at the time I looked). Trendline has a slope of 8.8.

    Yeah, but he was more or less under control the last few years. Seems like a switch has flipped. God bless

    #124628

    Not that “Get Along, Go Along” Kraft would ever do this,  but he should make his own personal stadium flag etiquette to follow the Flag Code to the letter.

    So no flag clothing, no carrying the flag flat (like say the full field drape), no flag products, no flags used as part of advertisements (for which you could stretch the interpretation to include those paid advertisements for the military). Oh, and just for shits and giggles, resume the old etiquette where you’re not supposed to clap after the national anthem.

    We’d see how far people’s patriotism extends when called out on their hypocrisy.

    But like I said, for causing a stir like that, Kraft’s not your guy. He’s more the fall-in-line type.
