Any of you guys watch the Aaron Hernandez Netflix documentary?  Seemed to be fair? Anyone notice if there were slanted points of view from what they had heard or read from other sources?

Greg Olsen and the Panthers have agreed to "mutually part ways."

Olsen apparently doesn't want to be part of a rebuilding project, and I don't blame him. He has battled injuries the last couple years and is a hot commodity for the broadcast booth, though he has left open the door to playing for another team.

Acquired in probably the greatest trade in Charlotte sports history - thanks, Bears! - Olsen was a hell of a tight end. He also has been a very, very charitable guy in the Charlotte community. He will be missed.

Does anyone actually care about the Superbowl this year?   No one to hate.  No controversy.   It seems like all of the 'hype' is pro forma because it is the Superbowl and this is what is done.  Not because it is actually inspiring passion.   Or is it just me?

The only Super Bowl I have "cared" about in the last 35 years was the one 4 years ago in which my Panthers faced (and, sadly, lost to) Denver.

I did pull against the Patriots the last many times they were in it, but I didn't really "care."

For most of those who are not fans of one of the combatants, the SB is the Annual Festival of American Capitalism, in which the commercials and halftime show are the real stars.

And it should be held on Saturday to really maximize the party.

I like that idea ... though the NFL is (primarily) a Sunday experience.

Oh, and back to the earlier comment, let me amend ...

Lots of gamblers care deeply about tomorrow's game even if they don't care about either team.

Also, I have to admit that while I don't really care about who wins, I think it will be interesting to see the SF defense go up against a freakly talented QB in Mahomes. If the game ends up being close, I could see me starting to care in the 4th quarter, and probably rooting for Mahomes and Reid even though I picked (but didn't bet on) the Niners.

They'll never do that because Saturday night is the night the host city rakes in the money from Super Bowl visitors.  Take that night away would cost the host city a lot of money, I think.  I'd prefer it be on Saturday, but it would be better on Sunday if they pushed up the kick-off 2 or 3 hours.

Next week (potentially) in the District of Columbia....1600 Pennsylvania Ave is where the visit is supposed to take place. Andy Reid and others will be there.

We sure? I heard the Super Bowl winning KC Chiefs of Kansas were looking into visiting the President of the US Virgin Islands in the state of Washington.

Nope...I’m sure...read it in our media so I know it is 100% true.

A reasonable amount to keep on hand for personal use. Sometimes friends stop by the crib, you know?

Made a stop in Rockford yesterday on my way back to WI.  While i was there, the fedex freight semi delivered 2 full pallets of product to the shop.  3-5 security guards with the truck and the driver.  What a world!

Meanwhile these 2 asshats are doing stupid chit like this.
Unless Sultan says differently that is, then we’d obviously have to go with that....
