Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

What the hell? Seriously was Jim Irsay drunk here? The question about the points begs some sort of explanation or league investigation... "Delay is preferable to error." - Thomas Jefferson... I'm convinced that if Leonardo da Vinci were alive today he would be designing huge stage sets for stadium rock bands or be a Broadway show producer. Creating pageants in Milan was one of his great joys... "If you open your mind too much - your brain will fall out." - Tim Minchin (I always think of this quote in terms of people who are too "woke")... Todd Helton was almost traded to the Red Sox back in January of 2007. I think if Helton was traded and his bat and glove were seen on a more regular basis by the East Coast voters then people would be speaking of him now as a sure fire Hall of Fame player... Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore who Bill Belichick signed to a big contract was named to the NFL All-Pro team. Malcolm Butler, who Belichick, let walk away had a less than All-Pro season for the Titans (to put it kindly). Yet people still question Belichick as a NFL GM... I'm convinced that the reason Josh McDaniels did not take the Colts head coaching job last year was because he didn't want to deal with Jim Irsay. He looked at what he had with Bob Kraft and came to the realization there was no way he could stomach that much of a step down in ownership...


  1. It seemed to me that Irsay was joking and his team knew it.

  2. He seemed drunk to me

  3. I make jokes when I'm drunk. Most of them are funny.
