  1. Kareem Hunt Involved in Bar Fight

    "he was seeking help for alcohol and anger management" ... at The Barley House.
  2. Jason Kelce is good

    My cat's breath smells like cat food.

    "Hurt guys stay hurt. Dumb guys stay dumb." It is like being short or slow.

  5. Eagles extend Wentz through 2024 season

    They are crickets. As if to question the lack of response.
  6. The Eagle was a famous bar on the Cockney side of town. "In and out the Eagle" meant you spent your money there as opposed to on rice or molasses for your family. A bachelor's choice. It's all good.
  7. He's a good red zone threat. But, only four of his 14 TD's came inside the 10. I think Eagle fans are looking for a lock-solid, 3rd-and-goal pass catcher inside the five. He was actually slightly more productive between 10 and 20 yards. Here are his TD's in 2018: 2, 4, 8, 9 13, 15, 18, 19, 19 23, 25, 28, 38, 80 So, he's not really a deep threat, but he had most of his TD's in the 10-30 yard range. His biggest value is that he is another big receiver who will command better coverage when the Eagles close in. Who has four 6'2" DB's to cover Jefferey, Arcega-Whiteside, Ertz and Goedert? Oh, and he can block. "Sanders up the middle for three and a touchdowwwwwwwn."
  8. https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2eo1 Oh, and go full screen.
  9. The best LoA song was probably "Out Comes the Evil." It was a remake of "Pop Goes the Weasel." LESSON Pop Goes the Weasel is an old Cockney song. Most of the world has the lyrics wrong. There is no monkey, no weasel, no mulberry bush. They lied to you. "Half a pound of tuppeny rice Half a pound of treacle That's the way the money goes Pop goes the weasel" Tuppeny rice is two-penny rice, or one penny's worth. Treacle is molasses. That's how you spent your money if you were poor. But it didn't feed the family for the week. So, you had to find other means to make ends meet. Cockney slang was a lot like hip-hop slang, words meant other things. But, there was a formula to it. You would take a word like "stairs" and find a rhyming word like "pears." However, you would couple it with a related word like "apples." So, "stairs" would become "apples and pears." Eventually, the rhyming word would fall off, and stairs would be known simply as "apples." Where's Mary? She's up the apples! (upstairs) In Cockney slang "coat" was "weasel and stote" (stote = another animal much like a weasel that rhymed with coat). In time coat became just "weasel." To "pop" something was to hock it. "Pop goes the weasel" meant to sell or hock your coat. Everyone had a good Sunday coat to wear to church. It was mandatory. To make ends meet, people would take the Sunday coat to the pawn shop and sell it for food money. When they got paid on Saturday, they would buy it back at a loss. That is part of why they were always poor. So.... "Half a pound of tuppeny rice ... (one pound of rice) Half a pound of treacle (molasses for some damn reason) That's the way the money goes Pop goes the weasel (I'll have to sell my good coat to make ends meet just to feed the family, thereby perpetuating the cycle)" It is not about a weasel. It is about being perpetually poor. Keep this in mind when you listen to LoA. :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5e4aY-_72g
  10. Eagles extend Wentz through 2024 season

    How so? Explain.
  11. Reagor is a fine college receiver. But, so are Collin Johnson, Tee Higgins, Jerry Jeudy and CeeDee Lamb. I have no idea who will be better in a year. That was my point. I don't like to project a year ahead. As much as I think Eno Benjamin is a 2nd rounder now, he may not be draftable by next April.
  12. I would chew the back of my lower lip. It was a nervous tic and it was so gross. Nonetheless, I loved it and it led to awesome things.
  13. Eagles extend Wentz through 2024 season

    LOL I don't have a problem with Matts coming here and questioning the Eagles. The Eagles have not been perfect. No team has. So, have at it. But, the Eagles were astute in extending Wentz now. By every indication he will be one of the best QB's in the near-to-extended future. A good contract, coupled with the extra picks, will give the Eagles flexibility ..... flexibility that other teams won't have. The criticism of Wentz is obscure. A veritable what-if-o-rama. Bully for them. Everyone is acting like this is baseball analytics. "On 3rd down and >10 yards to go in road games against at least three DB's over 6'2" he farts in the huddle." Seriously. It is all random. Why does everyone feel the need to match statistics with other statistics. Doug Williams, Trent Dilfer, Brad Johnson, Eli Manning and, oh yeah, Nick Foles. Statistics?
  14. Jalen Reagor? Like you pegged Kelvin Harmon as a 1 ..... better than Harry? This is not to totally disparage your ability to analyze, but it is premature. # drinkingandpostingisanart
