Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

Draft nugget from ESPN's Mike Reiss. "The Patriots have selected 15th once in their history - quarterback Tony Eason (1983). Since then only one quarterback has been selected 15th - Dwayne Haskins." That alone has me now hoping New England doesn't take a QB in the first round (unless they trade up)... Who could have guessed that Timothy Leary's mantra of the 60's, "Turn on, tune in, drop out" could also become this generations mantra for getting off social media and living a more authentic real life... If you're wondering what to get me for Christmas or my birthday - a Jyroball would do nicely. And currently pre-orders are less than $500... As an aside the villain from Casino Royale was a stock short-seller whose plans were ruined by the heroics of James Bond. But that was 2006 and villainous short-sellers now seem A-OK with MI6, the CIA and other big government entities... Yesterday I said that Ulf Samuelson is easily the number one sports villain in my life as a Boston sports fan I should clarify that what Jack Tatum did to Darryl Stingley was slightly before my time...
