I don't have a rooting interest and I'm not a Patriots hater like a lot of people are. I'd kind of like the Pats to win just to see Goodell hand the trophy to Brady. I like the Falcons though. Two good teams who can put up some points. I hope it's a shootout.

Too late.

They just now wheeled Bush Sr. and wife out for the coin toss, to a shot of a cheering Mike Pence in the stands.

The TV announcer informed the viewing audience that there is no tougher man in the stadium tonight than Bush.


:P

If Raiders end up in Vegas, which they most certainly will, fuck the Raiders. They were my second favorite team. Who will Raiders fans root for now? NFL teams shouldn't move to different states unless it's absolutely necessary. It's a betrayal of the fans who've been supporting them. LA Raiders were okay with me, I was in LA then, plus it's still California. But Vegas raiders? Ugh.

And to think, in the 70s, a time when it's possible for me to believe that America was still great again, all that cocaine being snorted by fans under the bleachers at Raiders home games. In Vegas that would have probably got you 20 years to Life. Only if you couldn't afford the right lawyer, of course. Or if Ken Stabler* wasn't yer friend.

So it looks like the NFL came to their senses and allowed some fun back into the league. Commissioner Roger Goodell tweeted out a news release outlining the relaxation in the celebrations rules and what will be allowed next season and going forward.

The press release reads:

“Touchdown celebrations:
snow angels, group demonstrations
and more are back!

Just as NFL teams use the offseason to get better, at the league we use this time to listen to players, coaches, officials and fans about how we can continue to improve our great game.

Earlier this spring, we announced plans to deliver a more exciting game experience, with changes to improve the pace of the game and minimize unnecessary disruptions to the action on the field. We also took important steps on health and safety, including approving new rules prohibiting the “leaper” block attempt—a top priority from our players.

“In my conversations with NFL players, it was also clear how much our players care about sportsmanship, clean competition, and setting good examples for young athletes. That is why offensive demonstrations, celebrations that are prolonged and delay the game, and those directed at an opponent, will still be penalized.

We know we have more work to do. We are grateful to the many current and retired players who engaged with us on this topic and we look forward to ongoing dialogue with them as we continue to work to improve this game we all love.

Thank you for your support.”

Well now! my boy is finishing up his season in style. His team "the mighty Kangaroos" from Pessac France (yes the same Pessac where Château Haut Brion is produced), has won their division title and are going to play the national final next weekend.

He's just spent four days at the French National Team training camp and has secured his place as the top WR in the group.

He'll play against the Germans and the Austrians during the European Cup finals in Paris in july.

Then in august he'll be the starting wr for division 1 Falcons, of the Québec Football league. And spend the next two years preping university and playing ball.
