The Five People You Meet In Indy

Normally I just let Mike take care of linking his stuff here on his own, but this is one of my favorite things he has ever written. I'm not going to tell you why, because I can't talk about another site's writers.

A dink contest would be 100% must-see TV.

Person six = Sports writer trying to make a unique story out of scripted interviews so his articles do not look like every third article being filed.

Today, that article is the cutest new kitten on the internet, and I want nothing more than to relentlessly tease it with a feather.

yep i hear yah RJ...football must have the longest offseason of any annual sport. Feb-Jul where no football is played? That's 6 months, plus another month of watching backups in the preseason. Means in a year, fans spend more time projecting what their team might do rather than actually watching them play. I love the draft, and analysing rosters and prospects around April, but before and after that the continual speculation bores me.

Our amateur football league is starting at the moment.
See if I learned something from watching about 50 football games live and on TV last season.

I wonder if it would make much difference if they pushed the combine/FA/draft back a month or so. With the new rookie salary cap don't as much time to get draft picks signed. Cut down on the dead time before camp.

I think it probably would, simply because it'd give rookies a month less time to get learning their team's playbook.

I thought it was a service for people who contact the dead, not a particular hair length.

Maybe it's the hair that's the medium and the people are just the messengers.

Hmmm. Are there any bald mediums? (Media?)

OL who is too nice

DE who does not have true postition
