… so don’t bother coming. No really. I mean, look at this place. Does it look like it’s any fun? Does it look warm? No. Don’t be fooled. We’re dying down here. Temps dipping into the low 70’s at night with wind chill.
More to come later this week….
But the NFL is finally waking up to the obvious. “NFL TO RE-CONSIDER DECADES OLD COMBINE DRILLS.”
Ya think? Boom… roasted. TOLD YA.
The NFL has used a standard set of drills, including a 40-yard dash, 20-yard shuttle and three-cone drill at its scouting combine for several decades, including the most recent combine held earlier this month in Indianapolis.
“We run the 40-yard dash in Indianapolis. Why? The only reason anyone can ever give you is, that’s how it’s always been done,” Birk said.
New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton, who also spoke as part of the panel, anticipated changes in the combine process.
And when they do re-vamp some of these drills, maybe they’ll also re-think the seriously overhyped “one on one interview.” Maybe. Maybe not. But give it another 5 years of being fooled by guys who know how to snow people sitting at a desk… and they’ll eventually come around to my side on that too.
Someday, I predict that “punting” will only be used when you are nursing a lead, with the game late in the 4th quarter. Teams won’t carry a designated punter, they will just assign an athletic player from another position the responsibility.
This will happen at all levels of football. Eventually. But it will take time for the math to win out. Give it 10-15 years.
Normally, I hate these internet trick shot videos. With enough space on your cameras memory card, enough hours to waste, and some entry level video editing software, you can create something that looks “awesome” after about 392 takes.
So why post this one?
Because… uh… 1) Chicks who golf! DUH! 2) The fluffed chip shot ripped out of mid-air with a driver is pretty impressive.
I’ll even forgive the overuse of the current “it” song MoTown Funk.
Go Lady Aztecs!

In reality, I am an ungainly buffalo who manages to sometimes do something mildly crafty on the ice.
