For the Orthodox and Steelers fans, anyway. He's been low-key feuding with the Steelers organization though, ever since they semi-forced him to retire when he thought he still had some gas left in the tank.

That was quite a game.  There was a while that I thought that the 49ers defense was going to prevent Kansas City from doing anymore when the 49ers had a 10 point lead, but Kansas City did not quit.  I have to hand it to them.

Next year will be Lamar Jackson's year to win it all.  KC plays in Baltimore next season.  I'd like to see KC open the new season against Houston or New England - whoever they're scheduled to play at home.

Let me tell you all a little tale.

I used to watch sports injuries like most red-blooded Murican males. I didn't seek them out, but I never shied away either. They were the proper evolution from blooper vids of the 80s after all.

Then I watched that one video where the gymnast from Auburn broke both her legs.

😮😮😮😮😮

I haven't been able to watch a sport injury video since.

She got better and walked down the aisle at her wedding, but the scars in my mind from seeing it endure.

I've watched lots of gym/lifting injury vids. The few that scar me were the squat videos. One with a broken bone, the other was a messy tale. I'll just leave it at that.

Watched Dak Prescott break and/or dislocate his ankle tonight. Ugh. Horrible. Lord have mercy.
