  1. Now Don McGahn is out. https://www.cnn.com/2018/10/17/politics/mcgahn-leaving-white-house-council/index.html
  2. To be clear, this was not my own marriage, but it is someone in my extended family. Just two people with wildly different views who have gotten older, less tolerant of each other, arguing a lot more, and this I guess finally did it. To be honest, they probably should have separated years ago.

    Just a personal opinion, and having watched him for years, that the Barry Sanders type dancing he does, best in space, doesn't work as well on a shortened field.

    Actually, being a Penn State fan and having watched his college career, he's not that great at the tough inside yards, despite how much the announcers are drooling over his thighs. I mean, he can do the "leap the pile" thing from the one, but going up the gut has never been his best attribute.

    Saquon Barkley is ridiculous. And because Eli can't get the ball to Beckham much, he's also all they've got.
  6. Well, I know of one pending divorce because of all of this. Not the only reason, but the straw that broke the camels back.

    Redskins Lead NFC East

    I mean, not for nothing, but the Saints are good. Also, I'm drunk. Just felt like adding that. Monday holiday baby.
  8. I'm confused, isn't Rask supposed to be good?
  9. Looks like the Offense and PP haven't lost a step.
  10. I'm not sure where else to put this, but is anyone else buying a copy of "Whose boat is this boat"

    The Giants...lol

    The other thing about it is, because Eli has no time and can't find OBJ, he frequently checks down. I think between the rushing and receiving, Barkley is averaging 21 touches a game, I think he's on pace for 332. Note, I got a stat wrong above, he's on pace for 108 receptions at this rate. What's bad is I remember reading an article, did a study on RB touches and injuries, and I can't remember if the line was 300, or somewhere in the early-low 300's, where a RB would have a statistically significant chance of a major injury in the next two seasons. I might be getting the numbers slightly wrong, but it was something like that. Continuing with the Penn State theme, I remember that one season where Larry Johnson had over 400 touches, then fought injuries for the next 3-4 years and was out of the league. I don't want the Giants to have success, but I like Barkley, and I';m afraid his career will get cut short playing for that ****show.

    The Giants...lol

    I was looking at stats this morning. As a Penn State fan, I loved watching Barkley and hated it when the Giants drafted him. After four games...yes, I'm doing some projecting, but despite the O-Line, he's shaping up to have one of the best rookie RB seasons of all time. I found a USA Today article that listed the Top 20 Rookie RB seasons in history, and sure, it's their opinion, but at least they had stats. These were the top 3: 3. Barry Sanders, 1,470 yards, 14 TDs, 24 catches, 282 yards, 0 TD 2. Ezekiel Elliot, 1,631 yards, 15 TDs, 32 catches, 363 yards, 1 TD 1. Edgerrin James, 1,553 yards, 13 TDs, 62 catches, 586 yards, 3 TDs So we're only four games in, and I know, injuries, projecting, etc. Still, at the moment, Barkley has 260 yards rushing and 3 TDs, which would project to a relatively pedestrian 1,040 yards, though the 12 TDs are nice. However, because of the crappy O-line and Eli Manning having to fear for his life, Barkley is also a frequent receiving target. At the moment, he's on pace for 104 receptions and almost 800 yards receiving. So combined, even with the crappy O-line, he's still arguably on pace for a Top 5 rookie RB season historically. If the Giants ever get their big boys figured out, I'll hate facing him twice a year for as long as his career lasts. I very much hate the fact that he's wearing Giants blue, because I wanted to be able to root for him in the pros.

    The airline experience has become miserable

    I still fly Jet Blue because the experience is better, even though I personally dislike them. Years ago, my wife and I were flying somewhere and chose to pay a little more money for a later flight, so we wouldn't have to be up before dawn. We got notice after awhile that JetBlue had canceled our flight and moved us to the earlier one we had purposely avoided, probably not enough seats sold between the two to make it worth it to fly both planes. There was no mention of the price difference. So I called them, explained the situation and asked, if you're moving us to the cheaper flight and inconveniencing us, what about the price difference. "Oh right" they said, not those exact words. Then they refused to credit the money back to me, they only offered me JetBlue credit to use towards a future flight. Which of course expired after a year. We don't fly that often. I raised a bunch of ****, both over the phone and via e-mail, but got the same reply, that this is apparently airline policy and I agreed to it when I bought the tickets. It wasn't enough money to go to court over, so I had to eat it. If anyone asks me about JetBlue, I tell them I ****ing hate the company and their business practices, but they're still better than almost anyone else.
  14. I assume it's a sexual reference, but I've never heard the word before all this started.
  15. Hmmm...that's not what I remember a Devil's triangle meaning. Then again, this was several years before I entered high school.
