76/57.  Winds NE @ 7mph.   Perfect day.   Have a rebel red for me.   The pizza with mushrooms is my favorite 

We went with twisted thicket and one blueberry adult slushie.  And margarita pizza.  And I agree it's a perfect day for this.  One last summer fling.  Lol.  Musician is playing a lot of 90's grunge which is good by me but making the wife frown.  Lol.

That's not nice...

Yeah, I know. 

I grew up surrounded by passionate Phillies fans...parents, extended family, and friends. They were everywhere. Spent the first several years of my life going to the Vet (this was in the early/mid 1970s) and my path was set. Until...

My dad worked for an outdoor advertising company that does billboards. His company had season tickets to the Orioles, seats were literally front row behind home plate. He took me to my first O's game in 1976 and that was it. I was hooked. I never looked back, been a die hard fan for 45 years now. At that point it became "fun" to go against everyone I knew and started rooting against the Phillies. Nothing was sweeter than beating the Phils at the Vet to win the 1983 World Series.

Unfortunately, that was a long time ago and the great moments have been few and far between ever since. 

A lot of baseball fans today do not realize how great the Orioles organization was back in the 60s and 70s. "The Oriole Way" was something that most organizations tried to emulate (unsuccessfully) for many years until the Hoffberger family sold out to Edward Bennett Williams and then eventually, the despised Angelos family. That family has ruined a once proud organization. It's sad.

At least you have the Steelers. Oh wait, these injuries to the defense are going to kill us.

Maybe it’s just a “Tomlin and Ben never figured out how to beat the Raiders” thing and we’ll be fine. But if Watt is out for any amount of time, it’s over.

I take that back. **** Mike Tomlin. Get a possible season-ending injury to a starting receiver by running a play in an unwinnable game.

Congrats to the refs who gifted the game to Dallas! The league always tries to keep the Cowboys relevant early in the season. They didn’t want Dallas to go 0-2!

 

Refs were throwing flags on both sides.  Really made the game unwatchable.  The kick at the end did give me 6 fantasy points. 
 

Down to 56 already.

LOL, Dallas has not been to a Super Bowl in some 25 years.  They are one of the hapless NFL teams since the 1990's.  That QB down call on Herbert was a bit strange though.  The Cowboys play calling and clock management was so bad they almost gave it back.
