Your Hastily Conceived Wednesday Evening Open Thread


Sorry for the quality – we were short-staffed at school, and I could only put things together in chunks.

NFL News:

  • Overly conceived: Sean McVay says he was “over-prepared” for the Super Bowl.
    • He claimed he spent the first week before the game watching every Patriots 2018 game, plus their Super Bowl games from previous years to try & gain insight into what they might do.
      • Failing to take into account that Bill Belichick is an evil genius who plans based on the opponent, not the scenario.
  • Poorly conceived: Donovan McNabb has a “bitchy” response to people upset at his criticism of the Eagles.  
    • “If I’m an analyst and a question is presented to me, I’m supposed to answer the way I see fit,” McNabb said, via
    • This is all because he said the Eagles might consider cutting Carson Wentz if they don’t make it back to the NFC title game before his rookie deal runs out.
  • Financially conceived: The Seahawks are indeed considered the frontrunners to sign free agent DE Ziggy Ansah.
    • He would fill the gap left by the Frank Clark trade, and his pre-existing shoulder issues means they’d be getting him at a discount.
      • Which would then allow them to extend Bobby Wagner & end all this contract bullshit that dogs them each off-season.
  • Rem capto: Prosecutors in the Robert Kraft case want the court to sanction Kraft’s attorneys for allegedly lying in court.
    • They claims Kraft’s attorneys made up accusations against a testifying officer designed to impact his credibility.
    • The lawyers’ response is classic, ‘What? How DARE you impugn our credibility?!’
      • “This is all an obvious and desperate attempt to deflect attention away from the illegal and unconstitutional actions of the Jupiter Police Department and the state lawyers.”

Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL: Game 7, Bay-Bay!   
    • Avalanche at Sharks – 9:00PM | NBCSN / CBC / Sportsnet
  • NBA:
    • Celtics at Bucks – 8:00PM | TNT / TSN
      • Game 5; Bucks lead 3-1
    • Rockets at Warriors – 10:30PM | TNT / TSN
      • Game 5; series tied 2-2
  • MLB:
    • Mariners at Yankees – 6:30PM | ESPN / TSN2
    • Twins at Blue Jays – 7:00PM | Sportsnet1
  • Futbol:
    • MLS:
      • Atlanta vs. Toronto FC – 7:00PM | TSN4
    • USL Championship Soccer:
      • Nashville SC vs. Tampa Bay Rowdies – 8:00PM | ESPN2

I kinda wish I could watch that USL match. Otherwise, I look forward to either moar double overtime or a blowout.

A Canadian man-child of indeterminate age, he stays young by selling alcohol at sporting events and yelling at the patrons he serves. Their rage nourishes his soul, and their tips pay for his numerous trips to various sporting events.
