Yep, no surprise with Thoros. People have to start dying and the ancillary characters are the first to go. Only 7 total episodes left which means they will have to start narrowing the field even more. Beric, Grey Worm, Jorah, remaining Greyjoys, Ed, Tormund, and Bronn may not have that much longer. I feel like The Hound will last close until the end. He has to have some sort of date with the Mountain for his arc to be complete. Will be interesting to see what happens to Gendry. They could totally kill him off or let him stay alive and be in a position to claim he is the rightful heir as Roberts bastard.

We know JT will be an undrafted free agent. Scattershot arm with poor strength. Burrow showed some potential last year and appears to have the arm strength. Haskins appears to have good accuracy and solid arm strength. Burrow appears to have slightly better mobility and leadership abilities. I fully expect Burrow to start come 2018 with Haskins being a valuable backup. Martell may have the best blend of arm strength, accuracy, and mobility. At 5'10.5" he is at a massive disadvantage when it comes to NFL potential. People will cite Russel Wilson who is just under 6', but Wilson is very beefy and a world class athlete. Not fair to compare Martell to him. I don't have the stats to back it up, but I believe Burrow will be excellent next year. I also maintain he is our best option at QB for this year if we want to make the playoffs AND advance. Hope we have plenty of blowouts so Burrow can get some serious PT.

-Mike Weber is Antonio Pittman at best. A guy good enough to start most schools, but not at an Ohio State or Bama type. 

-Barrett is a great leader, but a complete scattershot as a thrower. 

-None of the above two will matter because Kevin Wilson will create the greatest offense in Ohio State history anyway.

Really concerned that Arya is about to end up dead. She is coming off a huge success which in GOT means her end could be near. I also can't see the writers killing off Cersei before season 8. Maybe something will cause her to re-evaluate her current plan. After all, she does have to meet up with the red woman at some point doesn't she?

Zeke, just stay inside your country club man. Go golfing, play Xbox, watch game of thrones, or do just about anything else. Just stay away from parties and bars for a few months. Do not give the NFL any ammunition right as they are discussing your suspension! You can't leave it all out on the field if you aren't actually on the field. I'm just at a lose for words. Zeke could be totally innocent in this latest incident, but once again he is putting himself in environments with more risk at the absolute worst time.

As a Falcons fan it is very hard to articulate Vick's legacy on the franchise. He was awesome on the field despite always doing the bare minimum during practices/off season. He was always the last to arrive at practice and the first to leave. Still, he took the Falcons all the way to the NFC championship despite his poor leadership and total lack of preparation. I can only imagine what he might have accomplished during those years if he had truly applied himself both on and off the field. Not sure we will see another quarterback that runs a 4.3 forty and can throw the ball 70 yards. People forget sometimes that he had arguably the strongest arm in the NFL during his time. He could be running full speed to the edge with the entire defense in pursuit and then flick the ball at the last second and watch it go 35 yards like a bullet to some receiver who just broke off his route. It was total backyard football half the time, but it worked because not even corners could run with him stride for stride.

Anybody else planning to drink and make tons of awesome food for Sunday night? I will have to start drinking early though so I'm 100% sober/recovered by the time 9 PM rolls around. Looking forward to the ultra fast pace this season should be. 

Comment 03 Jul 2017

Agreed Linga. It wasnt just losing but losing in the manner we did. MSU running the QB to the boundary every other down and us having no answer for it in the 4th quarter. And of course that stupid windmill celebration from Geiger. I need a drink. 

Comment 27 Jun 2017

Right, basically his timeline for playing time stays the same. The only difference is he now spends a semester playing at Blinn as opposed to spending a semester on our practice squad. We will see where he ends up, but this move looks good for us given his past comments. 

Comment 22 Jun 2017

Agreed Brutus. I'm rewatching season five now. Arya stuck in Braavos, Sansa stuck with Ramsay, and Bran just chilling up north. Not the most exciting storylines. Some good action with Jon at the end of the season, but not much else. Season six was considerably better in my opinion. This year might be the best. 

Comment 20 Jun 2017

Good post but I disagree on Milsap. He is a 10 year vet which means he is eligible for the big daddy max contract. The Cavs will have to pay him at least $30 million a year to acquire him. I wouldn't advise giving superstar money to a 32 year old forward who will average 15 points and 7 rebounds. Also, Milsap can't defend Durant. Jimmy Butler can. Butler could also defend Curry or Thompson. 

I agree on Love. He really he is a great player and fits well in the Cavs system. It is unfortunate that his play against the Dubs has been so up and down. You would like to keep him but there is no scenario where you can acquire Butler without giving up Love.

Chipper Jones in the field? That is not a good thing. That's being said, he looks like a stud. Good for Reds!

Props to you both. I love hearing stories like that! I'm just coming from a research perspective. Most think tanks agree that having a child out of wedlock puts you at a ridiculously high risk of being in poverty. The wealth gap between a single parent household and two parent household is staggering. Having a child at a really young age doesn't mean there will be only one parent involved, but it is more likely for sure. I applaud you for turning your life around for your child, we need more of that in this country. Having two involved parents is about the greatest gift any child can have growing up. 

Comment 26 May 2017

I wouldn't recommend becoming a parent so so very early in life, but glad they decided to keep the baby.  Congrats to them both!
