I know how you feel. The team I grew up rooting for does not exist any longer either -- they are now the Baltimore Ravens.

The team that the Ravens used to be ended up being replaced by something broken.  They need a tanker truck full of glue and a flatbed full of duct tape to fix the brokenness.

But I've been in Cincy for a few decades so I just root for the other orange team in Ohio.

The Browns would have to pry McCarron from Mike Brown's cold dead hands ... at least that's the way it looks now.  They seem to want to hang on to the guy and then lose his trade value when he's a free agent.

A few years back a recent signee who was pursued by ND and some SEC school had a quote like, "I could have gone to Notre Dame and had great academics, or I could have gone to [Tennessee? I think they were still relevant at the time] and played on a great football team.  I chose to come to Ohio State and do both."

The exact quote escapes me, but the gist of that quote will stay with me forever.

I'm thinking about cutting that cable cord myself.

Everytime I call my service to do so, they give me another steep discount.  Eventually they'll decline or the discount won't be enough.

57 channels and nothin' on

Or 257 these days, but still nothin' on

Interesting story.  I was one of the 2.5M watching Ohio-Troy.  I was so traumatized by the New Year's eve game that I totally forgot there was a game on January 9.  I mean, I knew it was there but I honestly forgot to watch the Dynasty vs. the Buggerers that day.

Rooting for Zeke, but I have to hand it to the Packers -- they basically had no RB all year and lost most of their DBs and lost Jordy Nelson last weekend, but they are still firing on all cylinders.  Rodgers is incredible.

Talk about Next Man Up.

It's very rare for a safety to go that high. 

And lately it's very rare for a running back to go that high.

But the Cowboys don't seem to be regretting taking a RB high in the last draft.

Bone cancer. That's terrible.

I'll be praying for that kid too.  Zeke has a big heart.

Remind me not to let Hue Jackson anywhere near me while I'm drafting my fantasy team next year.

(He must have been with me in spirit this year, as my FFL team was terrible)
