    Kobe Bryant Killed in Helicopter Crash

    RIP Kobe. I spent about half of the last year in LA for work. I started listening to one of the morning shows there regularly. They had the lead singer from Blink 182 on one morning (this is going somewhere, I promise). He was late because of traffic. One of the hosts asked him "Don't you have helicopter money", and the guy said he absolutely does, but he'll never ride in one because they crash too often. I thought he was a little crazy at the time, but I totally get it now.

    Same. I was genuinely worried for him there for a minute, I thought he was going to die on the spot.

    Houston is playing single high safety, and KC is killing them across the middle. Chiefs just have too many weapons, and a QB that can extend plays, run, and throw to any spot on the field. Game over.

    That was a reverse, a flea flicker is a hand off that is tossed back to the QB. Either way, poor execution. But followed up by two big plays. Can Houston's defense stop KC? Probably not.

    Houston's pass rush has fallen apart. The Chiefs will have an easy time the rest of the way if Houston can't find a way to get to Mahomes.

    The question for me now is will the Chiefs, after looking so good, start to choke again? Who will choke last, and choke best?

    It has to be frustrating to be down 21, and for the team to continue to look inept. Especially for what fans pay to go to the stadium. But I only feel so much sympathy for KC fans. I haven't forgotten that 45-10 game in 2013. Down 21 after 1, there's still time to come back. But it doesn't seem likely.

    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    Do you understand political reality? Even if the Obama administration had pushed to leave troops in place (which they didn't, we can all also agree on that) the Iraqi parliament was not going to accept the agreement.

    What's your house worth? https://graphics8.nytimes.com/packages/pdf/world/20081119_SOFA_FINAL_AGREED_TEXT.pdf Article 24 Withdrawal of the United States Forces from Iraq Recognizing the performance and increasing capacity of the Iraqi Security Forces, the assumption of full security responsibility by those Forces, and based upon the strong relationship between the Parties, an agreement on the following has been reached: 1. All the United States Forces shall withdraw from all Iraqi territory no later than December 31, 2011. We can all agree that the initial agreement was to remove all troops, right? It says so right there. https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2015/may/18/jeb-bush/obama-refused-sign-plan-place-leave-10000-troops-i/ I think I see where you get confused. Jeb Bush claimed that there was a deal in place for the US to leave 10,000 troops in Iraq. Obama thought about trying to leave troops in place, but decided against it. But even if he had made the offer, the chances of Iraq approving it were nonexistent. So you're blaming him for failing to do something that he realistically could not do.

    Colt McCoy is not the answer, unless the question is "What quarterback will not win this game for us?"

    All fair points, but would you rather be up 10 or down 10?

    I can't imagine a realistic better start for this team. Maybe it's low expectations, but wow!
  15. The randomness in hockey is hard to overstate. The puck bouncing over a stick or settling perfectly can be the difference in a game, in a series. Skill and gameplan matter, but they don't determine outcomes. How else do you explain a blowout each, while the rest of the games were hard fought and close (empty netters aside). Last year, everything broke right and we won it all. I just hope it happens again in my lifetime.
