Scottish independence would be interesting. I guess we'll find out soon.

So, like, what? "Oh, there's a video? You're fired!" Chris Mortensen of ESPN reporting in July "he strikes her, strikes her hard. And her head—according to the sources I've spoken to—struck the rail inside the elevator, and she was unconscious." So if they saw it,* why deny it now? My guess is that, at the time, they didn't think it was that bad. *I suppose they could have had their outside counsel watch it, and then write the NFL a detailed description of what went on, so they could deny ever seeing the video until it was released publicly.

long time, no see, anything you'd like to chat about?

said goodbye to the son (or close relative) of blackhawk. There was backchannel discussion, so this wasn't just me and this thread is to give you regulars a chance to talk about it, not that I'm going to change anything.

This was not Knight's first time being shot at a pre-VMA party.

"He was shot in his leg at a party hosted by rapper Kanye West at a Miami hotel on the eve of the 2005 VMA show." Also, too: "Knight was driving the car which which Shakur was a passenger when the rapper was shot to death in Las Vegas in 1996." Tough man.

Sorry, between the events of the post below and vacation/school starting, been busy. Will try to step it up after Labor Day, if not before. Go Nationals.

Waiting for the Bill

One of the kids had surgery. Wondering what the bill will be, the vast majority of which will be covered by insurance (or should be). May put up a post at the mothership about the process when I see it.

LeBron to Cleveland!

Rooting for in the World Cup

US and Brazil. Then, any team from Africa. After that, in any particular match, the team from the poorer country. It did seem a bit unseemly to have US fans going crazy when we defeated...Ghana.
