    To force you to watch it, silly. IIRC Thursday's game is streamable on Amazon if you have Prime. You know, if you don't mind encouraging them.

    To be clear, I have never weighed 200 pounds, nor am I anywhere near as athletic or attractive as Edelman.
  3. So last Friday's development came not from Mueller, but from SDNY's sentencing recommendation for Cohen, and had little to do with Russia. In it, it explains that Cohen paid off Stormy for the express purpose of influencing the campaign, using his own HELOC, and was reimbursed from campaign funds through a shell company, all with the direction, knowledge, and involvement of Individual 1. This directly implicates Individual 1 in felony money laundering, fraud, and campaign finance violations, all of which are grounds for jail let alone mere impeachment. Stay tuned for Manafort's sentencing hearing on Wednesday.

    I remember the wife laughing at a tiny football player who was dwarfed by the players around him on the field. "Who is that little guy? What's he doing in the game?" And I replied, "Julian Edelman is my height."
  5. Meanwhile: it seems that banana would have a size advantage, whereas the grapes would have the superior numbers. It may come down to tactical acumen.

    The health care system in this country makes me so god damned angry.

    I think I’d be more worried if it started to go up.

    I challenge you!

    I feel as though there should be a poll for such a momentous conflict.

    Who’s that? Does he seem familiar to anyone else?

    Seahawks might be okay, they're a game ahead of the other NFC teams for a wild card slot. NFC East is a race between Philly-Dallas; the Skins would be in contention but they're pretty badly mangled after the last couple of weeks. Tampa's virtually eliminated already. The Colts are unlikely to catch the Texans for the division, but they're in the wild card race with the Panthers, Vikings, Titans, and NFC East.

    Which reminds me, I watched one of the NCAA women's volleyball tournament games last week. It was at Oregon State, and they painted pine tree silhouettes around the edges of the court. It took me ten minutes to figure out that that's what it was and it wasn't just a very badly maintained court. I hold Boise State solely responsible for inventing the non-green turf field. I should sue them for eye damage and psychological distress.
