News At Eleven

The six week offseason period that NFL players are out of view from their benevolent dictators, sometimes known euphemistically as “coaches,” got off to a rip roaring start in Massachusetts as Patriot TE Aaron Hernandez barged into the sights of a local police investigation regarding a homicide. The buzzards have been circling Hernandez all week, in an ever tightening and blood thirsty formation.

Out here on the 49er coast, LB Patrick Willis got a “perfect attendance” diploma for 100% participation in the 49er offseason progam and DE Justin Smith signed a very team friendly two year extension to his current contract and HC Jim Harbaugh is in Peru performing his yearly missionary work.

Gawwd, we are soooooooooo boring!

The problem is the Raiders. They are not holding up their end of the thug behavior spectrum, which has always given the East Coasters a big run for the money. Instead of being loudly and garishly aberrant, the Raiders are now just blubberingly goofy.

Hernandez almost surely will be arrested at least for obstruction of justice, which will force him to rat out his friends or take a seat in the slammer, but beyond that, who knows? Not clear yet whether this case will have more traction than the Boston marathon bombing earlier this year, but I’m betting it does. The marathon bomber was caught and whisked away, never to be seen again, to one of those prisons that are America’s version of Siberia. Once he was arrested, the news cycle ceased. The Hernandez case will have arrests and trials, though, so it will dribble on for quite some time.

Speaking of Timothy McVeigh Zacarias Moussaoui, does anyone think he’s just sitting in a cell all these years, quietly going insane? Or has his body been donated to the “let’s see how this drug works” society of evil government lab guys? I bet McVeigh Moussaoui doesn’t even know what he did by now. Or who he is.

At any rate, time to load up on the popcorn. With basketball done for the year, the Hernandez case is going to be breaking news all weekend long.

    Skeebers- I’m thinking that maybe you didn’t get the news that McVeigh was executed in 2001.

  2. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Significantly the Pats barred Hernandez from working out at their facility yesterday which might indicate where this is going.
    Obstruction of justice on a murder investigation is what Ray Lewis did
    and he was suspended for a year.
    Since then Goodell has made the NFL personal conduct policy even tougher on offenders.
    Playing anytime this season is unlikely and the Pats just might void his $40mil contract and say goodbye just like the Raiduhs did the same to Rolando McClain after 2 alleged assaults having to do with a gun in a short period.

  3. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Ooops! I guess I missed that one.

  4. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    I would say McVeigh wishes he had missed that one but IIRC, he waived all of his appeals and asked to be executed.

    Here’s the link to the yahoo! FF. http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1/98417
    .
    Not sure if you guys were sent an e-mail reminder or not. I might have missed a click or two when I reactivated the damn thing last night. I just happened to be sober. That was a huge mistake.

    So the love child of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian has a name now.
    It’s a baby girl and they named her North.
    Kids should be taken away from parents who think it’s fun to saddle them with a quirky name to go through life with.
    North West is just wrong.

  7. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    They probably named her after Oliver North!

  8. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    If that kid ever writes a book entitled, “North.” It’ll be North by North West.

  9. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    The best part is her middle name is By North.

  10. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    It’s Dennis by a nose.

  11. unca_chuckNo Gravatar says:

    Hey. It’s a tie . . .

  12. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    Dennis, I was the first one to sign up for your Yahoo League.
    I don’t know if I’ll have time to play, if I’m moving back up to the mountains, but if I can’t I’ll drop out and open up a spot for somebody else.
    For the life of me, though, I couldn’t figure out how to change my team name to The Roadrunners.
    That’s what I was really asking.

  13. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Go to “My Team,” and hit “Edit Team Settings.” You should see your current name in the box. Go ahead and change then save it.
    .
    Let it know if that works.

  14. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Those Seahags sure like to talk about their love for Jim Harbaugh.
    Saw someone post a pretty good nickname for the Emerald City team
    SEADDERAL.

    Golden Tate is the donut burglar and
    a guy who never pushes off despite what the replay says.

  15. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    The NFL is going to give the sacks leader the Deacon Jones award. That’s good but too bad Jones didn’t get to learn that while he was alive.

  16. RTFireflyNo Gravatar says:

    “The Searchers” on now.
    Some history in my family about that flick.
    When my Mom was a Lab Tech (higher ranked than an RN) at St. Vincent’s in Hollywood, she once took blood from Ward Bond.
    I heard that story a thousand times, and we had to tease her to make her stop.
    And my late Aunt took dancing classes with Natalie Wood as a child.
    Comes with growing up in North Hollywood, I guess. Couldn’t avoid it if you tried.

  17. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    What’s crazy is that Deacon has zero NFL sacks. Officially.

  18. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    True, but he did invent the term “sack.”

  19. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Even crazier is the misnomer that Thomas Crapper invented the flush toilet. He did, however, do much to increase the popularity of the toilet, and developed some important related inventions, such as the ballcock.
    .
    And it’s also a misconception that the slang term for human bodily waste, “crap”, originated with Thomas Crapper because of his association with lavatories. The word crap is actually of Middle English origin; and predates its application to bodily waste. Its most likely etymological origin is a combination of two older words, the Dutch krappen: to pluck off, cut off, or separate; and the Old French crappe: siftings, waste or rejected matter (from the medieval Latin crappa, chaff).
    .
    But I know what you’re all thinking right now. Who gives a shit!?

  20. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    What was the movie where the great line was “When legend becomes fact print the legend?” I think it was The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence. Thomas Crapper still has the legend! And no, I don’t give a crap about it.

  21. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Berger, you are correct sir. Great line from an equally great film.

    Hey, where’s my buddy Rob with his NASCAR pick for today? They’re running in my “backyard” in Sonoma in the Toyota/Save Mart 350. Since Toyota is a main sponsor, I naturally have to select a Toyota driver. I’m going for a repeat with the #15 Clint Bowyer driven 5-hour Energy Toyota. What say you, fan favorite of the Florida Gators? The same school responsible for producing future felon, Aaron Hernandez.

  23. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    Speaking of cars, my hometown of Pinole is holding its 22nd Annual “Cruisin In The Sun” Classic Car Show today. 1975 or older cars and trucks. All American-made. We don’t care much for foreigners ’round these parts. There will also be rockabilly music from the “Dave Crimmen Band.”
    .
    So let’s add this up. NASCAR + Classic Car Show + Rockabilly music.
    .
    Dennis, you might be a redneck if…

  24. winderNo Gravatar says:

    In pinole, say it ain’t so.

  25. winderNo Gravatar says:

    I used to ride my bicycle from Concord to Pinole and back using the back roads. Pretty sure Bear Creek Rd. was one of em. God I wish I had that energy again, it was a great ride.

  26. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    So the Drew Brees car accident story has been proven a hoax.
    There were a lot of Aint’s fans believing this.
    Testing people’s levels of gullibility.
    http://www.wwltv.com/sports/Brees-calms-fans-fears-shoots-down-fake-news-post-about-his-health-212551581.html
    Just like this trend of “swatting”.
    This is a prank exceeding pulling a fire alarm for fun.
    Somebody seems to get off on stuff like this but cities will just bleed more money and take away first responders from real emergencies.
    The person making the prank call should have to reimburse the city or county and get 5 years in prison because IMHO it’s not funny.

  27. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    You guys will never guess who I just met and chatted with down at the car show just moments ago…Celebrity chef, Guy Fieri. If you don’t recognize the name, you might recall his face by his very distinctive bleached white and spiked hair. Anywho…Guy is a big car aficionado. In fact, you guys might remember the story about Guy’s canary yellow Lamborghini being stolen. Guy and I talked about that and other various and sundry subjects for a short while.
    .
    Fieri’s fabulous finch-flying fast Ferrari was friggin’ filched.
    .
    I know what you guys are thinking about my excessive, but very clever wording of all those ‘F’ words…
    .
    Fantastic frippery from a fraternizing faithful friend.
    .
    F no? OK, F me.

  28. Del Mar DennisNo Gravatar says:

    You want more F’s? My favorite fastball-friendly franchise, the fickle, sometimes feeble, faulty, feckless but forgiving to a fault, Frisco Giants just failed and flopped feebly to the Fish. They lost fwee outta faux to the Fish.
    .
    Fie fi fo fum.

  29. BergerNo Gravatar says:

    Effing funny!

  30. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Touche` Del-
    Fieri is an F’n food fancier flitting around from eatery to eatery fetching free fare.
     
    To top it off, he’s an F’n Raider Fan.
    You should have flicked him in his F’n eye so he he’d need a patch to show his allegiance.

    This article looks at Justin Smith’s new deal and points out the hometown discount. Justin Smith is taking less than the new deal Ricky Jean Francois signed on for. It is refreshing to see that money isn’t the primary motivator here, winning is.
