  • NFL Wake 11! Jerry! Jerry! He’s Our Man!

    ….and other things that make you think you’ve landed in Bizarro World. Or the Twilight Zone (I’ll take the latter, have had a school girl crush on Rod Serling and not George Reeves).

    I’d like to think that right after this photo snapped, Roger Dodger was the recipient of a backhand bitchslap.

    No.1:  Not being a Cowboys fan, except insofar as I thought Tom Landry was the quintessential image of a coach and that Danny White was too damn cute to be real, I don’t pay much attention to them except when they are piling on the Saints.  My introduction to Jerry Jones was via a 60 Minutes profile talking about his new stadium, and he came off like….well, like a narcissic jerk.   But today, Jerry Jones is the hero of many football fans this week for his efforts to take out the odious Roger Goodell.  I hope he succeeds.  And other NFL owners are proud to display all the lack of awareness of the national climate that the Congressional majority leaders have been displaying since January, when they “threaten” him with the NFL version of the “nuclear option” to try and take his team away if he does.  Perhaps they should think about doing a little polling.  Because if they do this to Jones, start tolling the bell at Independence Hall.

    No. 2:  San Francisco won for the first time, after the despicable Eric Reid took a knee. He’s “carrying the [Krapperdick] banner.” Hope he carries it straight to the unemployment line. Maybe the Niners could offer him a $15 million contract and he could walk away from it as well. Then he and the GQ “Citizen of the Year” (still trying to nail down what country they might have been referrring to) can room together in the Tenderloin. Might be crowded with SJW “fiance” in the mix and never shutting up – oh and prayer rugs being hauled out .

    In keeping with the upcoming holiday theme….
    These Turkeys will be suiting up today: (Turkeys not suiting up? Jets, Colts, 49ers, and Panthers)

    Lions @ Bears
    Jaguars @ Browns
    Ravens @ Packers
    Cardinals @ Texans
    Buccaneers @ Dolphins
    Rams @ Vikings
    Chiefs @ Giants (you lost to the 9ers, guys, anything you do now is a comeback)
    Redskins @ Saints
    Bills @ Chargers
    Bengals @ Broncos
    Patriots @ Raiders (this may actually get Football Savant Offspring to Mass this morning)
    Eagles @ Cowboys

    Monday’s Game:
    Falcons @ Seahawks

    NASCAR brings its 36-race season to a close at Homestead-Miami Raceway, and it just occurred to me that the sport begins and ends its season in Florida.  Probably because it’s one of the few states that has decent weather in February and November.  I will never understand the NASCAR points system, no doubt because they keep changing it and I’ve never been good with numbers.  Here’s why.  Last week, Martin Truex Jr. was 50 points ahead in the points race, had a decent finish in Phoenix and yet there is a four-way tie for the lead.  This actually means the likely Champion will change throughout the race.  I dunno….I’m smelling collusion and manipulation.  Let’s go look for the Russkies!  In any event, it will be fun to watch, even if you DON’T believe the race is won or lost in the “pits”.

    The NHL has a nice slate, so check your local listings.  Can someone explain “blue line” and “icing” to me?   Wierd quetsions becuase I used to watch the Bruins faithfully in their Stanley Cup year in 1970.  I didn’t really understand the rules, you understand.  I just wanted to moon over Bobby Orr…

    Islanders @ Hurricanes
    Avalanche @ Red Wings
    Senators @ Rangers
    Kings @ Golden Knights
    Panthers @ Mighty Ducks

    The Golden Knights hail from “Vegas” – not LAS Vegas; just “Vegas”  Why disrespect the “Las”?  You don’t shorten the City 270 miles west to “Angeles”.   Yeah, but I’m on the case and in the current climate, I figured it out.  “Las” is female; “Los” is male.  It’s misogyny.  Has to be.  It can’t be White Supremacy or Homophobia, so it has to be the choice from Column C.

    And if If no one is saying “Las” anymore, just change the name of the town to “Vegas.”

    In the PGA – final round in the RSM classic from Sea Island Golf Club in Georgia.

    In the NBA, I imagine that they must be beside themselves with joy that three potential future players were released from China this week.  They should be welcome with open arms since they already have a head start on a criminal record, with bonus points for criminal activity in a foreign country hostile to the U.S.

    And this is your open thread for Sunday.  And your reminder to start defrosting the turkey if you haven’t started already.

      the blue line in the offensive zone is the line that the puck must pass first before any offensive player or they are off sides, the play is blown dead, and the puck is taken back to a face-off dot outside of the offensive zone.

      icing is the act of clearing the puck from behind your blue line, past the center line, and over the other blue line. it is deemed icing when the opposing player touches the puck (but not the goalie). that said, the opposing team may not skate slowly and allow a puck to be iced, they must play it or the icing is waved off. if you ice the puck, the puck is brought back into your zone for a face-off and you are not allowed to substitute players.

      you may ‘ice’ the puck at will to kill time when you are playing short handed trying to kill a penalty.

      @ coldwarrior:

      You must gain the red line, not your own blue line, or its still icing.

      Now that there’s no-touch icing (player safety) the whistle is blown once the puck crosses the goal line. Icing is also waved off if an offending teams player beats the other team to an imaginary line formed in the zone where the two faceoff dots align.

      what a quiet news day. Late this evening some rumors, people are still digging to confirm. You remember that congressional slush fund? It may be that some of the victims were minors. If that’s true, it wouldn’t be staffers, I don’t THINK interns, probably pages.

      you asked for it, now suffer.

      Sitting in the hair salon she has owned for 27 years, Pamela Coleman was saying she hasn’t been a victim of crime herself. Then she quickly knocked on the nearest piece of wood — to avoid jinxing not only herself, but also her city.

      “I’m not going to say we’ve hit bottom,” said Coleman, the 52-year-old owner of X-Cetra Salon in the Hamilton neighborhood of Northeast Baltimore. “But we’re not far from the bottom.

      “I think it’s the worst I’ve ever seen, and I have been living in Baltimore my entire life. I don’t really feel safe anywhere anymore.”

      Even in a city where crime seems like a chronic rather than an episodic disease, the recent string of killings, shootings and robberies has felt qualitatively different. Mayor Catherine Pugh says the violence is out of control. Three years into a historic spike in killing, it’s not clear that anyone has any idea how to curtail it. In conversations private and public, in neighborhood gathering spaces and on social media, fear is rising.

      On Wednesday, Baltimore showed it still had the capacity to shock, in the fatal shooting of police Detective Sean Suiter. The 18-year veteran, who joined the homicide unit in 2015, as the violence began rising, was investigating one of last year’s 318 killings. He became this year’s 309th. The shooter remained at large, even as police descended on the Harlem Park neighborhood, shut down streets and banged on doors in search of the suspect or evidence that would lead to him.

      and from today’s “The MSM is populated by really sleazy people”

      The NYT has suspended Glenn Thrush, uber Trump hater,for ‘imposing’himself on young women who worked with him at Politico while everybody was getting drunk at bars after work. (Seriously, I don’t know how that works. How it happens more than once I don’t even get and if there are no complaints from his current co-workers, whose business is it?)
