  1. Tom Brady wanted to trademark the nickname "Tom Terrific". He lost. The US Patent and Trademark office rejected Brady's request to trademark the term. Brady says he was trying to protect Tom Seaver's nickname. Lolol. Spare me, Brady. “Has anyone ever even called him ‘Tom Terrific’?” Mr. Talansky said. “Was ‘Vainglorious Cheater’ already trademarked?” Tom Brady Is No ‘Tom Terrific.’ Any New Yorker Can Tell You That. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/23/nyregion/tom-brady-seaver-terrific.html
  2. I'm drawing a blank. Who is the Pats' backup QB? Or the Chiefs' backup? I guess I should click on the article. I think the Saints have the best. But I'm biased.
  3. Thanks for your reply. I appreciate it. My approach to building a team is to draft well, develop players and retain them. I don't like to sign or trade for other teams' star players, especially running backs. JMO What would you like to give up for Zeke? If you're willing to give up a high draft pick, why not just draft a top RB? Many fans don't seem to want to use draft capital on RB in the draft. Why give up draft picks for a RB with wear and tear when you could have drafted someone out of college?
  4. Gordon's best friend is Vikings CB Trae Waynes. Trae needs to talk some sense into his childhood friend. As for Zeke, were fans this hopeful several years ago when the Colts acquired T Richardson? I'm not a fan of Zeke. His football skills are great but his judgment off the field is poor. The Colts seem to stay away from guys with character issues like Elliott.
  5. The Giants could use a WR. Corey Coleman is out for the year. Sterling Shepard is hurt. Golden Tate is suspended the first four games. And they don't have Beckham anymore.
  6. Great job. Thanks. I completely agree about Juju. I like James Conner too for the same reason you mentioned. Are you still high on Kyler Murray and the Cards after their first 2 pre-season games?
  7. Reds seem to give other teams a lot of trouble. Speaking of juiced ball, Pete Alonso has hit 39 HRs and this rookie player for the Reds is the fastest to 11 HR. @hippiejohn must be ecatatic.
  8. This year's crop of major free agent relievers has been a $250 million disaster https://sports.yahoo.com/mlb-relievers-free-agency-david-robertson-yankees-000217587.html (read article for more) The article goes on to show that almost all the relievers that got big contracts are doing poorly. The two that have performed well are Yankees relievers (Britton and Ottavino?). The author blames this partly on the juiced ball.
  9. I liked Dan Bailey but he missed several easy kicks last year. So, this move does not surprised me. Someone on the Vikings site recommended that the Vikes trade for this guy. Hope he works out.
  10. I'd love that. Sign me up. There are some very nice people here. I am pretty sure the Vikes play the Colts in 2020. If they play in Indy, I may attend. That's true.
  11. When my sister lived in a suburb of Chicago (Oak Park), I visited there and wanted to attend a Cubs game. All games were sold out. I thought Chicago was a great city, very clean. I did not see any of the violence that is reported on the news. I'd like to visit again one day. I'd like to visit Indiana too one day. I'm going to Miami (FL) tomorrow (my uncle's ex-wife/my cousins' mother passed away).
  12. Thanks, Hozer. This is the first I am hearing/reading about this. How was the game?
  13. Thanks for the reply. I know that the Vikes had worked him out before the draft. Some of us thought the Vikes would draft him. Too bad he did not work out with the Colts.
  14. Both this game and the Jets/Giants game are showing where I am. I heard on the Jets broadcast that Basham is a Jet. I did not realize that he was no longer a Colt. Was he waived for poor performance or some other reason?
  15. I was wondering why the Colts and Bills game was showing here in NYC. It is not raining in the city...yet.
  16. Yesterday, I went to a community event and the local police department gave out Mets t-shirts. The message on the t-shirts: Signed by our long-time Mets radio announcer Howie Rose (pictured). Mets have been doing a lot of that lately (winning), albeit against poor teams. Let's see how they play against the Nats.
