My boss just gave us a kinder and gentler approach -- no death match, but no more OT is allowed.  And if we have to work late some days, we just work flex hours . . . so I'm planning on flexing into a few Fridays off.  Take that, Sith Lords.

I'm old enough to remember Sam Rutigliano and the Inner Circle for substance abuse support.  That was back in the 70’s when the scourge of cocaine was going through the league.  If they don’t still have something like that program, I wish the Browns would resurrect it to help guys like Gordon.  Rutigliano was justifiably proud of it.

But in the short-term, I doubt he sees the field in 2014.

A guy I know is working 12 hours triple-time OT each day of the weekend . . . I think he's making $1800/day this long weekend.  God Bless America.

I'm always forgetting and asking the person next to me, "Hey, doesn't he have three strikeouts?" . . . then when the third and fourth go up, I remember.  The memory is the first thing to go.

It was definitely referred to as the Mel Brooks outfield on occasion . . . and we Cincinnati sports fans know suffering nearly as well as our brethren from Cleveland.

Not football, but in the 90s the Reds had an outfield of Young, Frank and Stynes  -- Dmitri Young in left, Mike Frank in center and Chris Stynes in right.

Something tells me this guy never read Ramzy's "How to be a fan without being an a*****" article . . . he may even sport a mullet and wear jorts and write a lot of posts about some team called the "Suckeyes" . . .

I miss a time when it was more about the game and less about the sponsors, when there was a lot less money floating around.  I'm sure there was still a lot of cheating going on even back then, but it all seemed more innocent and less about the almighty dollar in the pre-BCS days.
