Your “Watching The World Pass By” Wednesday Evening Open Thread

NFL News:

  • Dissention in the ranks as the league’s GMs vote to delay the draft but the league office refuses.
    • The GMs want the delay because they haven’t been able to do their “due diligence” in preparing for the draft.
      • Things like player physicals, gathering psychological testing, and getting further verified information about the players.
        • Because getting such vital details will surely prevent teams from drafting players like Vince Young & JaMarcus Russell with high-round draft picks.
    • The league wants to keep the dates in order to avoid having to shift further events later.
      • Late Tuesday, Commissioner Roger Goodell sent out a statement announcing that all 32 team facilities would be closed beginning Wednesday.
  • The Saints signed Janoris Jenkins to a two-year contract extension.
    • It’s worth $16.75 million, bringing the saints’ investment in him to three years & $27 million.
  • Ndamukong Suh is staying in Tampa.
    • It’s a one-year, $8 million deal, down from the one-year, $9.5 million deal he had for 2019.
      • It’s been a steep drop for Suh since his three-year, $50 million contract with the Dolphins ended in 2017.

Finally, the Rams are going to throw Eric Dickerson in front of the fanbase vis-à-vis the new logo.

  • As the Rams’ vice president of business development, people have been tweeting at him about the new look, which he also isn’t a fan of.
    • He’s apparently going to try & have a meeting with the marketing department.


Today’s internet good dog is Bogey, a Golden Retriever pup who gets caught between biting his tail & trying to roll over.

Wait’ll he learns about balls!

My biggest problem today is not knowing the difference between the symptoms of the Corona virus and the symptoms of being an alcoholic shut-in.

Mr. Ayo
Mr. Ayo

Terrible content?

Col. Duke LaCross

That goes without saying.

yeah right

I’m going to invoke the Alheimer’s rule here,
meaning that I’ve probably said this before but.

If you’re watching the OJ Made in America thing, well I met OJ.

My old girlfriend, the crazy redhead and I were in Jamaica getting crazy, mon and who should we see walking across the open common but OJ Simpson. He was golfing in Jamaica while looking for the real killers.

I had to say something as he walked up to the bar so I said, “Hey OJ! I used to watch you run for USC and the Buffalo Bills. We live in San Pedro”

I’ve been drinking you see.

OJ says “I know San Pedro well.” We shake hands, he shakes hands with the crazy redhead.
I buy him a drink and we talk about life and I tell him “yeah, you were the shit at SC and then you were in the movies and then…”
This was in 2003-ish?

He says “Yeah I know I know.”

Very personable guy. Fun to have a drink with.

We’re walking away and the crazy redhead says “I can’t believe I shook hands with a murderer!”

I asked her to speak more quietly in the presence of a murderer.

That’s my OJ story.

If you want to make a real power-move, sign your well written emails with the complimentary close “Yours in Christ.”

It’s a judo move, and thus must be used sparingly. This is tactics, not theology. Only you can be the judge of when to use it. The goal is to strike your opponent off-balance.

Thank you for reading this.

Yours in Christ,
