May Day! I love irony in real life. Here it is, the International Socialist Workers Holiday, named after a distress signal. Those who cannot remember history are doomed to repeat it, and all that.
Or…maybe they were just talking about the Saints’ draft? Was it really that bad? Well…who knows? Yet. Not Pete Prisco. Not Jason Cole. Not even Jordan Grove. We’ll be having more to say about this in a later post, and in between beers, but for now let’s just get on to the other news.
There ain’t much. Seems the lead investigator of Bountygate has quit. Seems also that it doesn’t mean anything, since he’s just moving on to another job. But, of course, we don’t know why he’s moving on. Could it be he refused to go along with Roger Goodell’s hamfisted attempts to hijack the NFL for his own purposes? Could it be he’s lost a power struggle with the moderate elements within the league, and he’s the first domino to fall? Could it be he’s a Bulgarian agent intent on destroying American sporting interests, and is simply moving on to his next assignment, having performed brilliantly in the last one? Who knows? Can you prove it isn’t true? (I LOVE journalism!)
Also, Atlanta has some more money to spend in a vain attempt to become relevant. $3 million can get them a nice, solid minor starter, or a couple good backups. Or—and just stay with me here, we’re gonna pull some G’s—they could give that money to the Saints to help us sign Drew Brees. And just how is that in the best interests of the Atlanta Falcons? I’ll tell you. If the Falcons wanted to—my God, look over there! What? Oh, just thought I saw something. No matter, no matter. Where was I?
