    Kircus was on campus in October for his HOF induction. Didn't you see him then?
    Anes LinkedIn profile shows he's in Nashville area in real estate. Don't know how old that is.

    That is more up to date than my update of him. I had attended a young adult group service 4 years ago and saw that he was working there. His LinkedIn profile says he started in healthcare real-estate in Nashville in 2017. It looks like he also does business motivational speaking.

    Me as well. Still doesn't change what I said about reasons they weren't more successful in the NFL, which was what my reply was addressing. Those things still happened. Doesn't mean that defines them in any way.

    Definitely. Was disappointed he didn't get to throw at all in the few preseason games he played in with the Lions. Just came in to hand the ball off.

    Looks a lot better than it did last Saturday afternoon!

    Suppose it's safe to say that many haven't seen a grass field in Minnesaota, in December, in as good of condition as Blakeslee's field??? :)

    That should have enough caveats to sneak through...

    Looks good. Any chance there's some heating coils under there making the ground softer? After last week, I think both teams would appreciate anything with traction.

    No heating coils. Supposed to drop near zero tonight- well on it's way during my evening walk. Kind of like playing on a parking lot.

    Doubt neither team will change their game plan from last week. Appears whoever can complete a few passes and convert more 3rd downs will win the track meet.

    Ferris has never seen a chocolate milk drinker like Laker.

    Brrrr. As a plus, my app is showing highs in the 20's on Saturday and sunny. Still not beach weather though.

    Blakeslee is one of the last natural turf fields left. That's football! Reminds me of the old Packer/Cowboy frozen tundra quote.

    Probably one of the best-remembered (and most frequently-quoted) examples of Facenda's NFL Films narration is something he never actually said: "the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field" was a quote sportscaster Chris Berman made up, mimicking Facenda's voice when he said it.

    Interesting. Kind of like the phrase, "Beam me up, Scotty" was never actually used on Star Trek.

    And I don't think Scotty ever said, "I've got to have twenty minutes" either. He did say thirty minutes though.

    Good luck to Mankato. I’d love to see the Buehlers get sent home again in the semis.

    As a lover of all things Trek, I approve of this analogy.
