    Mother fucking SPORTS!
    I am the Cat who walks by themself; and all places are alike to me...

    For the cat is cryptic,
    and close to strange things which men cannot see.
    They are the soul of antique Aegyptus,
    and bearer of tales from forgotten cities in Meroë and Ophir.
    They are the kin of the jungle’s lords,
    and heir to the secrets of hoary and sinister Africa.
    The Sphinx is their cousin, and they speak her language;
    but they are more ancient than the Sphinx,
    and remember that which she hath forgotten...

    They signed Tyrod Taylor to presumably be their bridge quarterback until they find their longterm solution, which will probably be in the draft either in the lower rounds of this year's draft or from one of the picks from an eventual Deshaun Watson trade (he's gonna get traded some point after writing a gigantic check to stop the bleeding of his public perception). He'll probably end up on the commissioner's exempt list at some point before the season starts before being suspended. He'll be back, though, and if anyone thinks this is going to make teams afraid to trade for him after all his personal/legal trouble is gone, they're nuts.

    Oh it won't because it didn't stop Adrian Peterson or Hunt from going other places either, nevertheless still pretty gross and messy.

    Gonzaga is gonna annihilate UCLA.

    Yeah, Stig and I talked about this, and I hate to admit this was my first reaction, but I was suspicious about the timing of it. To be perfectly clear, even one accusation of sexual harassment or assault should be thoroughly investigated; that shouldn't be contingent on the volume of accusations or who's bringing forth the suit. My suspicions, though, stem from the fact the lawyer, Tony Buzbee, who filed the initial suit is basically a known crook in Houston and a close friend of Texans ownership, but a blusteringly smooth operator. But, just from a non-legal distance and with past patterns of how these things go, the sheer volume of accusations coming forward means there's likely something there. I just hope the details are filled in (primarily, of course, the element of consent), and the full extent of justice weighed. This isn't gonna affect his career, though, because that's just the way the NFL is.

    Man...it sucks because I actually liked Deshaun a lot personally.

    Tony Buzbee won’t provide information regarding Deshaun Watson to Houston Police Department, after all

    Another thing that is suspect is that Buzbee has yet to provide evidence to Houston Police that could lead to the opening of a criminal investigation for Watson's alleged crimes, yet has said several times that he would do so.

    I'm waiting to reserve judgement, yet I believe there is smoke here. Best case scenario Deshaun is a horny rich dude who gets off on getting instagram models/prostitutes to perform sex acts on him while being massaged, which while it may shatter his good guy image, as long as both parties are consenting and the pretense of what was going to happen was known up front, really isn't that big of a deal. However, if he indeed force himself upon these women like what is being alleged, that's a totally different situation. Given how adamant he was about privacy and seeking NDAs, that seems more evidence of the former than the latter, which if we're gonna demonize him then that list of people we consider monsters is about to get real goddamn long (hell, what Robert Kraft did was really worse than that and he pretty much got caught red handed).

    Haven't kept as abreast of the NFL offseason lately, but I'm loving Sammy Watkins on the Ravens. Great weapon for Lamar to throw to so he doesn't have to turn into an RB every time his guys can't get separation. He's only one guy, sure, but this is a good move for them.

    White Sox will be an interesting team to watch this season. Especially if their defense improves. I'm also fascinated to see how this young team gels with an old-school manager in Tony La Russa.
