It's Saturday night, so you know what that means?!
Okay look - there's not a lot on these days. So I figured, why not go deep down some rabbit hole & find a historical artifact that, when viewed with today's eyes, seems wildly out of place, and the act of just
As you all know from Don T's Wednesday post, the man we all knew as tWBS passed away on Monday. FWIW, as he would write, it seems he passed away in his sleep without suffering. So, that's something.
Many of us got to know him in real life and we're lucky
INT. RECORDING STUDIO - DAY
The PRODUCER sits at the control panel, gazing into the booth with a thousand yard stare. DJ 3000 is in his usual location against the wall. The mood is very somber. The lights on DJ 3000 start to flash with increasingly frequency, and then are joined
I'm not going to lie, I'm still at a loss for words. This week has been quite depressing. I've lost count as to the number of times I've edited this post, because I don't know if I can adequately express how I feel.

Proving once again that the only true crime in the NFL is taking a knee, Aldon Smith has been reinstated by the NFL.

There are definitely people here who knew Seamus better than I did. People who knew him in real life for instance. One of my big regrets in life, other than law school, is not having attended any DFOCons, where I would have met tWBS, as I understand he never missed
There's nothing of note today in the NFL, so I'll save what there is for tomorrow.
As you've learned earlier today in Don_T's excellent post, we lost a member of the [DFO] pantheon.
It has been, to say the least, a very shocking revelation. To the point where I've tried to get
For real: The Wee Baby Seamus died on Monday (natural causes), and we found out yesterday through a relative. It’s heartbreaking. TWBS was one of the best friends anyone could have. We were lucky to know him.
TWBS had outstanding qualities: bright, generous, more doer than talker--among many others (“A loyal
Why do people like traveling?
You spends hours in line to do nothing somewhere else?
Crowd up with a pile of strangers in a big tube covered in body lice and old sweat for hours
Is that a good time?
I can’t think of any other reason
Your wife wants to take pictures of it?
Since this is Day 3 of the Canadian holiday weekend, and all the NFL news looks like a Very Special Episode of "Crimebeat!", I figured I'd just go with a summation of the middle-aged Canadian's long drinking weekend playlist.
First, the classics that appeal to the elders that may have come
Good day, and welcome to possibly the first in an annual series. Or actually the second, since I panned the Jets' unis last year and this is along the same vein.
A whole bunch of teams changed their uniform layout this year, so it's only right that we go over them
