A cornucopia of WMDs today, DJ. Not surprised at all about The Whermacht.  War for Weeds was not the weed I expected, but interesting nonetheless. Joe Thomas listing all 18 QBs was pure fire. But Death by Fire, was like getting doused with a bucket of ice water. That man has literally been to the gates of hell and back. I'd like to pour a couple of perfect beers with and trade stories around a well-contained campfire with that guy.

13 days.  Feels like I should be waking up from a midsummer night's dream.

Love the closing paragraph:

Years from now, if people do talk about me or my legacy, I hope people remember me both as a winner and a good dude who cared about people and never wanted to be big time. To me, I’m still J.T. Barrett from Wichita Falls, Texas, who likes to stay home and play video games and eat Honey Buns. That’s who I am, and I’m not going get away from it. My stay here has been unique, and to finish it leading this team to the national title would be the perfect ending to a memorable journey.

Stay grounded, Mr. Barrett.  It will serve you well no matter where you end up.  You're our QB, and Buckeye Nation is behind you.

However,  they've "cut down on" prescribing them and still prescribed enough last year to give a two-week supply to everybody in Franklin County.

Case in point: Teen Navy #1 had his wisdom teeth removed last month. Fairly involved surgery with all four impacted and the uppers were sideways. Oral surgeon wrote a script for 30 Oxycodone to help with post-surgical pain. Thankfully our son hates how he feels on the stuff (had it for a previous surgery). He took one. They gave us over a week's supply, when we could've gotten by with some Tylenol 3.

Strombo's story got me square in the feels this morning. Wasn't prepared for that. 

Reminds me of a Navy Pilot who was a POW in Vietnam. On the day they were released from the Hanoi Hilton, he walked out the gate, stopped, turned around and said "I forgive you." He said it was the most important thing he ever did. Came home without the hate and all the baggage it brings. Had to be tough to do.

You got me today, DJ. Read the first WMD, and I couldn't get any farther without commenting. Mostly because I'm having trouble seeing the keyboard at this point. More than a little dusty in here.

Any time former adversaries can reconcile their differences and find peace and honor for their fallen loved ones, it's a good thing. This is the first I've heard of that organization, but it appears they're doing good work.

According to this article, (https://www.landgrantholyland.com/2017/8/14/16142674/ohio-state-nfl-news-week-1-preseason-malik-hooker-nfl-debut-colts-injury-report) he's still in Philly, unlike the rest of the UDFAs from 2017.

Punter Cam Johnston is the only UDFA still with a team out of the 2017 draft class, and he was able to get off two punts for the Philadelphia Eagles last week. In an effort to make the final 53-man roster, or at least the practice squad, Johnston’s two punts went for 83 yards total with a long of 49 yards — one went out of bounds and the other was a downed punt.

Thanks, ScarBuck.  Not having to go to work everyday and sit in front of a computer has been good for my soul, but definitely hard on my 11W time.  Kids starting school this week, which should free me up a bit.  I plan to produce the F+ weekly if folks are still interested.  Admittedly, I will be absent one week in September - going canoeing in the Boundary Waters with a buddy.

I'm with you, Hove, regarding the '97 Rose Bowl.  One of the best football games I've ever watched. Joe Germaine had ice water running in his veins during that final drive.  The boy was a steely-eyed killer.  I still have my sweatshirt from that win.

i understand why people would vote for the NCG against Oregon, but that title was won in the Sugar Bowl. I know diehard Duck fans who turned that CFP Championship game off in the third quarter. It was never in doubt after halftime.

JJ assumed he was the heir apparent at Arkansas, and he was pissed when they gave the job to an outside, Lou Holtz. Many believe this was part of the animosity between him at Miami and Holtz at ND.
