: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.

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.
