I have to say I am curious about the song of the Canadian sparrows changing, but I don't even know why. Have sparrows created their own peer pressure? Their own Top 40? Maybe it was just one industrious sparrow who wanted a chickadee and he began a movement. 

Of course the NFL wouldn't want to do anything it didn't have to, and they think they are above it all. I still hope that we have "regular" college football in the fall, even if it isn't exactly what we expected, so there is little reason to worry about the spring this far out.

Clicked on that one as well and was thrilled to see Bret Hart, looking as only The Hitman can. I don't think it can ever be a bad thing to see one of the wrestling Harts, which shouldn't be a shock coming from someone with a moniker that commemorates Bret's younger brother Owen. Oh Canada indeed. 

Congrats to you for being wed to a Canadian as well. Go hockey

Not sure what is worse-the algorithm picking out a guy that clearly wasn't the right one, or that the cops didn't do any other police work to attempt to determine if he was the culprit or not. Sad, especially when the guy's daughter now wants him to play cops and robbers as a game. 

Glad that Zeke is feeling better. I wonder how this baseball season is going to go on that front. One of the NWSL teams had to pull out of their tournament due to so many members getting it.

I knew about Mayday of course, but not the specifics of how and why it was created. Kinda cool, especially the idea of saying it thrice and the order of information after. I will admit I had never heard of "pan-pan" until this article, but it is good to know. Hopefully I will never need to use either, but one never knows. 

Stroud may be rising as fast or faster than anyone else, but I still look forward to seeing Miller and what he is able to do. Any kid committed as long as he has been just impresses me, in particular when he isn't a local Ohio kid.

An owl in a police car, pecking the officer driving the vehicle. That is some classic stuff there. Don't even know why I clicked on that one, and the story is from Christmas Eve of 2015 to boot, but whatever. Brought a smile to my face anyway. 

Agree with Kevin-even if it is socially-distanced, seeing Script Ohio will be ok with me, and will bring a tiny slice of normalcy even if the presentation isn't normal.

What a bizarre and sad story about the living displays. I wouldn't have been terribly surprised if the article had been current, but it is 100+ years old and still just terrible. 

Three would be nice, but let's start with getting the boys to Columbus and then win the first. I do like the chutzpah however.

I had never heard the name Reed Hastings until today, but I also have never used Netflix so I continue to be out on my own little island I guess. Dude has put a lot of money into education, which overall can’t be a bad thing, but not so sure that his ideas match up with mine. I can see why the little Colorado town is upset by this when everything is being cloaked in secrecy though. 

Glad there will be no Trey Burke. I don’t care if he is from Ohio-that guy really bugged me up north and I am fine with him staying away from Carmen’s Crew.

First there was “can Nick be as good as Joey?” And the answer was yes. Then it was “can Chase be as good as Nick?” And again, the answer was yes. In both cases the follower may well have been even better than the first. 

Which leads us to Mr. Jack Sawyer. We can again ask the question, but at this point I am fine with penciling him in as an improvement on those before him, which shouldn’t be possible but yet is probable. 

Comment 15 Jun 2020

Hack was more of a stand and throw while Trace could move, so I don’t necessarily disagree with McSorley as a college qb in that way. I suppose I am old-fashioned but I still like a qb who can throw it and doesn’t have to absolutely rely on his legs as Trace mostly did. Hack was more accurate as a thrower so that was my angle

Comment 15 Jun 2020

Unfortunately I have to agree with Navy. I say unfortunately as I don't like Franklin even a little bit and wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him, but he has had the most success by far so I suppose he would be the choice. 

Locksley is the only guy on that list that I don't have a great dislike for, so going by that metric I would choose him, but while he can recruit he has never shown a penchant to coach his way out of a paper bag so I will pass. 

Can't we do West coaches so that Pat the Cat and/or PJ are available? At least they are good human beings who have shown an ability to win games, something that cannot really be said for the east coaches. 

Comment 15 Jun 2020

I kinda like the wooden currency idea from Washington. The small town my dad lives in created their own coupons to use at restaurants only within the town, so same concept and it has seemingly helped to keep the places going during this time. Do what you have to do to survive. 

Christian Hackenberg? Ok then. I couldn't stand him but he wasn't a complete bum a la Trace McSorley, who really hadn't no skills at all other than running the ball. That said, no way CH becomes relevant at this point in time so good luck to him I guess. 

Comment 11 Jun 2020

I am jealous of the guy who was on retreat for 75 days. I would have been jealous even before covid-19, but the past 75+ days just need a reset. Definitely liking the idea of disappearing into the woods with zero contact for quite awhile. 

Kevin hits is perfectly on the qb’s. Being a backup in the NFL is a great gig-Chase Daniel has made something like $30 million and started fewer than 5 games. But being Collier, who had skills but not opportunity, had to be annoying at best and depressing at worst. He did stick it out however so kudos for that. 

As for the Urban troll, masterfully done. What better way to be clean than to erase that logo from all existence?

Comment 09 Jun 2020

I had a great aunt who never three anything away. I mean never, and some of her favorite items were newspaper clippings. Not full papers, but individual articles or recipes or whatever, and we are talking paper ream boxes full of clippings. She was also an antiquer (is that a word?) and as such some items held value while others were basically useless. Took the family the better part of a year to go through her entire house. She wasn’t a hoarder per se as her house still had plenty of room to walk and wasn’t completely oit of control, but man did she have the stuff. 

Comment 09 Jun 2020

The clutter concept is ok with me. I am a collector, though I do also like to be organized. Even more organized these days with the free time as well. Why get rid of something useful?

We will likely never know what the true Carton story is, so I will wish him well and be done with it. But I have never liked Marquette so I won’t root for him. 

Comment 08 Jun 2020

I cannot fathom being on death row for almost 30 years, and only then having the state decide that "oh wait we were incompetent and you didn't really do it so now we will let you out". What a time for him, and now the family of the slain girl is back to square one not knowing who did it. Damn mess. 

Braxton has always been a favorite, so it is nice to see him still being the man even now. I still have the t-shirt he released that makes fun of Kyle Schwarber and I will wear it proudly once again today. Usually wear it during Sox/Cubs matchups to mess with Cubs fans, but I will add today into the mix just in Miller's honor.

Still The One by Orleans. Now there's a classic 70's tune for a Friday. 

I could easily see the non-con games go the way of the dodo this year, if it means getting the bulk of the regular season in. Many schools seem to be aiming to finish their grading periods prior to Thanksgiving, at least in the Midwest, so it would stand to reason that if others follow the lead of the Indiana schools then football would also end by the November break. Too early to get worked up, but I would have to believe that a truncated season would protect rivalry games at all cost, so ttun will still get theirs, maybe just a bit earlier than we have become accustomed to.
