:D

Egg - chicken. I have not followed the AAF at all - no articles, haven't watched a game. However, I did wonder if signing Manziel wasn't an indication of their desperation.
Speaking of Rudy, WTF?

They haven't exactly made it easy to watch. All but a couple of games have all been on cable stations not everyone gets. And reporting has been scarce outside of places that actually have teams, and maybe even there. But it seemed to be a workable plan for something like an NFL minor league.

Somehow I managed to never hear of it until last week, or yesterday. First heard was when Google flashed a headline at me about the money man saying he was suspending operations. I didn't click on the article and figured it to about the beginnings of another league. Only found out here that they actually played games.

Do you suppose we can get Johnny to wear a maga hat and join the trump re-election team

Switching from 'Johnny' to 'Toilet' doesn't seem like progress to me. :D

I like it. I think it is a good idea, and would have been even better when he was like, 12. But I won't ridicule him over it. Hell, he may even set a good example for Bubba Watson, and the other adultish guys still using kids' names.

'On Tuesday, Blazer testified under direct examination that he directed payments to football players from Alabama, Notre Dame, Michigan, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Northwestern and North Carolina between the years 2000 and up until 2013-14."


Bammer too, who'ed a thunk?

Cute, but it's fake news. No one would pay for UNC football players. :D :wave:

These three women are young. They're powerful. And they just made history

Simone Biles. Coco Gauff. Brigid Kosgei.

You'll want to remember their names. This trio of female athletes just had quite a weekend.

One flipped her way to becoming the most decorated gymnast ever. One served her way to becoming the youngest tennis titlist in 15 years. And one ran really fast for 26.2 miles to smash a world record.

Let's celebrate these remarkable young women in their respective sports.

Simone Biles just earned more medals than any gymnast -- ever

"ranked 313..."
Maybe they should reconsider that ranking. :)
Somewhere between #44 and #7 would be about right.

Wimbledon's 'Manic Monday': 15-year-old sensation Cori 'Coco' Gauff, No. 1 ranked Ash Barty out in 4th round

Awww.
She'll be back.
Yep.
Coco Gauff just became the youngest pro tennis champion in 15 years
