Saturday News & Notes: A Bit of Football

Against all odds, there's some football in my Twitter feed.  Amazing, no?

*Sigh*  The Giants thought they had they O-Line sorted out, and then LT Will Beaty tore his pec.  Ouch!  We don't know what's gonna happen now, but suddenly the year's optimism looks a little less grounded.

There's a bunch of other stuff in the article on offseason moves and whatnot.

It's weird that they're trying to sell girls playing football in bikinis based on the quality of the football, but what can you do?  They're hardly sexy in the helmets and shoulder pads... unless you're a fan of rug-burns from artificial turf.

In other news, the Canadian Football League heads to camp next week.  Maybe that'll show up on TV.  It'd be nice if it did.  My buddy's son is playing for the Montreal Allouttes.  Looks like Michael Sam is on that team as well.  If nothing else, I expect they'll have a monster D-Line.


It's a balance.  I strongly believe that a life worth living is actually focused on the quality of life itself, but sometimes I think I'm in the minority on that.

Both retweeted by Geoffrey Pyatt, America's ambassador to Ukraine.  He's a good follow if you want to know what's going on in Russia.

Heard this report when it was on the radio.  It's a weird kind of housing crisis, no?  We have homes that no one can afford that are empty and people who can't afford to live anywhere who are now on the streets.  The basic problem is that American labor is no longer of any particular value unless you have a Master's Degree, and even that's eroding slowly but surely.

This is not a good problem to have long-term.


Holy crap!

That's all I've got, folks.  Enjoy your Saturday.
