The NFL Draft Combine Participants list came out this morning. For the uninitiated, the Combine is where players get invited to do a series of drills to show off to the 32 NFL scouts in attendance just what they’re made of. The … Continue reading There is Only One Duck Invited to the Combine…
The New England Patriots are Superbowl 51 champions. The score is about what I imagined, but how the teams got there constituted maybe the most magnificent Super Bowl in league history, and was entirely unheralded. Man, I hate Tom Brady. Continue reading THE F**KIN PATRIOTS DID IT AGAIN
