Mandatory Monday: Cast Your Vote

I kind of like being freed from the no-politics rule here at FO and the "OMG, do not offend anyone anywhere with topical humor or post-19th century formatting" of some other past employers. It is not like I want to go off and start ripping people's political views. I just have so many Walter Mondale jokes to share with the world.

NFL Lowdown: Week 9

Thankful to be in a part of New Jersey that stayed high and dry this week so I could compare the Falcons to a bag of lima beans and speculate on how Andy Reid will prepare for blizzards. Also by me on Sports on Earth is a long form about the role of Christianity in football throughout history. Check it out! (I do so many different things over there that I cannot really XP them all).

Mandatory Monday: Keep it Simple

This week starts off with a breakdown of the second-to-last drive by the Cowboys against the Giants, where the Giants ran Man-2 (or something very close to it, Man-1 with a bracket on Witten), over and over again. At the end, I walk through South Philly in the rain. Click around the site a bit, and there is a piece about the Eagles and Falcons as well.

NFL Lowdown: Week 8

After all the gags, I talk about the Gambler's Fallacy at the end. That is always good for some heated discussion here at FO!

Mandatory Monday: Sunday Gem

Coverage of Jets-Patriots is really just an excuse to give the voices in my head a good sounding board.

Ed Reed has died of dysentery. No, he is just complaining again.

NFL Lowdown: Week 6

Tag! You have Elite Cooties. I also have a college basketball article up at Sports on Earth, if you are in to that sort of thing.

Mandatory Monday: Star of the Show

Forgot to post this earlier. Lots of Johnny Unitas history here, as I work double time to make sure that, if we are going to compare quarterbacks across eras, we are speaking the same language.

NFL Lowdown: Week 5

Pottery shards, phase displacement helmets, Gerald Riggs, old ladies that swallow flies, and a palpable sense of betrayal that Gary Kubiak would overuse a running back after we named a projection system after him.
