Raider Joe with a mention! Although I guess only FO readers will understand the reference.

The great thing is it works for a general audience, simply because RJ's name is so basic--only slightly more specific than John Q Public or John Doe. But WE know different of course.... Now if he can work in Catholic Match Girl and Robo-Punter, we'll have the Obscure FO Trifecta.

Not sure if the reference counts without horrible misspellings and the lack of ability to assess the talent on the Raiders.

The Vikings section was hilarious.

Was the Vikings section you read the way it is now or was it edited after the horrific Peterson news broke?

A note was added saying the section was published before
news of the Peterson incident broke.

It looks like you misspelled both 'Raiders' and 'Chiefs' there. Maybe time to get a new phone -- or a new beer.
