Saturday's problems were very offensive, but that doesn't mean we have to be offended the rest of the season.

Did that for me the past few days, as well. Like Gobucks said, just go to the bottom of a thread and log in there.

"Ok, Sweetheart, on three. One... Two... Get your feet set... THREE!"

Karma Karnage.

Whenever I hear Coach Kill's name, I remember the first high school football game I took my wife to at our local stadium. She was not from our football crazed town, and unfamiliar with many local names. We're sitting in the stadium watching the game and the announcer says, "Kill, the ball carrier" on seemingly every other play. Finally my non-football enthusiast wife asks, "Why does he keep saying kill the ball carrier? That's a bit harsh, isn't it?"  I introduced her to the Kill family after the game and assured her that I would never let her forget that comment.

Jerry Kill is the kind of man I would not hesitate to entrust my son to for 3-5 years of college football.  That very short list is even shorter now.  Get well, Coach.

Nothing.  Just pointing out that improvements can be and are made.

I'm using that line on my ex-wife. In fact, I may need to think up a reason to call her for the first time in 8 years just to pick at that scab and drop that truth bomb. Of course the down side is my body may never be found... Fukit,  I'm willing to take that chance.

That's what she said.

So I'm reading the WMDs bit about someone playing porn over the speaker at Target. Parents are freaking out, and a lady with 3 year old twin boys says, "People offered to help me cover my [twins']..." and then I stopped reading that sentence and thought, rock on Target shoppers.

A turd is still a turd, no matter the sample size of the meal. I'll trust in Chef Urban. The end result of the entree he prepares may sometimes (not often) have a certain stank and not be pretty to look at, but a win is a win.

Nah. I promote team unity by telling the current varsity wife she's the best one the home team has ever had. I think it means more when there's something to compare. That's just psychology, right there.  

Of course It could be problematic if varsity realizes the bar isn't set very high. I mean it's great that varsity is a solid base 6 pointer with a gimme 2 point conversion coming in at a solid 8. I just need to keep the fact that the comparison is with a player who fell over backwards with her legs in the air into another team's end zone resulting in a -2 points. The realization that she's highly ranked, but the competition is an undrafted free, reasonable, money-sucking agent that is a -2 and the reason I'm constantly over the salary cap is some bad juju I don't need floating around the locker room.  

As for the spring draft, if you have two, you don't really have one. Plus, trust me. Even with an unconditional release, there's just no cap space to draft anything worthwhile. I have a veteran line that worked well in the past, but I've lost a little speed and finesse around the edges. The game has changed for me now. I'm just going to stay content with the occasional score directly up the middle. It may not be as sexy, but a W is a W.

My practice squad wife used to say that same thing.  That's why she was cut after a brief stint on the varsity. She still hasn't been drafted by another team, and I'm just spit-balling here, but that could be the reason.  Not that she cares much with her guaranteed contract I'm still paying.

Honestly, three to four hours for a game is nothing compared to the final three games of last season. Those games may continue on a never ending loop on my tv.
