Detroit Lions. Needed that one man. Leave it to the Lie-Dogs to make that Kirk Cousins Contract look good. And man, Dalvin Cook. Lions hype was at an all time high going in to Monday Night Football. One short week later, the season is over. Not going 8-2 down the stretch no matter how hard they … Continue reading Gamenotes 3.5 – Gamenotes, but I added memes.
I am Midland lifer and I am not ashamed to admit it. I love this town, the people, the stupid roads, the Dow kow-towing local government, and despite itself, the food. I was recently FLAMED for having too narrow of a pallet from one of my more "mobile" (or a negative spin: "flighty") friends. I … Continue reading Top 10: Midland Dine-In
*Thursday Night Football that is actually watchable? Well shoot no one told me, I missed it! Even when good teams play it is usually terrible. *The difference between the Dolphins and the Redskins is that the Dolphins are intentionally bad. *Watching Haskins be really bad, was, nice. Hey guys look give him the Peterman treatment! … Continue reading Gamenotes 3.4 – Feels like Free Money

Lions pretty much had to win to win this week, and they did. But if this isn't the saddest "undefeated" team. Not from a roster standpoint, just, it is incredibly Lions to have the worst tie ever week 1, follow by an impressively ugly win in week 2. And then for the entire fan base … Continue reading Gamenotes 3.2 – Touchdown Jesus

I typically use the notes to recap, instead of predict, but the start of the seasons lends itself to predictions. This way we can all refer back to this list to see how little I truly know. … Continue reading Gamenotes 3.1 – Advanced Metrics I Made Up Just Now

Ah fast food, you greasy temptress, you salty sly dog. Your combination of cheap, good, and convenient is sometimes just too tough to pass on. And while I admit you've had your hooks in my heart, or rather my belly, for quite some time. It might be time for me to move on. I took … Continue reading Midland’s Fast Food Meals

GOODNESS GRACIOUS I AM … Continue reading Pre-Season Gamenotes
There are two shows that will always be there for me in my house: Friends and How I Met Your Mother. Of course, these two shows on rotation are entirely my wife's choice, but over the last five years of our marriage I've learned to love them both. They are incredibly similar, with Friends being … Continue reading Met Your Mother vs. Friends
