I will say, however, that the majority of American blacks I encountered in DC had disdain, bordering on hate towards who they perceived to be white. Primarily government employees working at all the venues, I was taken back by their contempt. Didn't get that from any of the island or continental blacks, who clearly do not wish to be confused with the locals. Baltimore is not do far away, and there is some real hatred in the area.

Georgetown is probably THE most expensive place to live in all DC. Que clase de nalga.

I give Woodcock LOTS of leeway, as he's as informed as a 1845 newspaper.

FZ, you're confusing 17th & 8th Ave. with Coral Gables. You should know better.

...and as far as the ladies go, The DC area is overflowing with them. Both Georgetown and George Washington med schools, plus regular schools are there. All kinds of kids his age were moving in for the new semester and there were literally thousands of fine looking ladies all around. Proof in the pudding; after his interview he was able to relax and started going out with the lady-bartender who was all of 27. The two went partying for the next three nights. He would wear his UCLA T-shirt out and about and all these babes would stop and chat with him. A world of difference between that and the "element" he would see daily where the U is located.

Woods, we toured the U just nine months ago when we spent X-mas in Miami. He didn't like anything about the school of medicine. Bro, Jr. and I have personally visited eight schools so far, and the Leonard Miller School of Medicine, though ranked a reasonable #65 is miles apart from those other seven we've visited.

FZ, Jr. did not like the U. A quote from Star Wars comes to mind..."What a piece of junk!"

Damn, sorry to hear that. I'll give him a call.

OL depth is the only thing that should worry. The starting line has demonstrated that they can keep Tannehill upright and throwing NE-style dinks and dunks down the field for scores. They've got two weeks left by which to get everyone back healthy. No surprise should they pick up a very good back-up lineman off league players that get cut from the 53 man rosters.

Thanks, FZ. And you're right about that homo to my right. I had to do a double take, as I thought I was being displayed next to Woodcock.

JUST GETTING BACK: to Austin after a six-day tour throughout our nation's capital. We stayed in a pretty nice hotel located on Pennsylvania Avenue, just two blocks from a Metro station (subway), which when combined with: walking, multiple Uber rides, the subway, the Redline and...did I say walking?... proved central...

Kazzam, I'll check out your request when I get back to Austin and have a bit more time to inquire with the Typepad desk. Boys, we're checking out the sites all around the District. Saw a report on how traffic is cited#1 in terms of jams, followed by LA. Personally, don't see it. We've been using the subways and it is very efficient. Jr. had a grueling interview at Georgetown. Was told he made.the 50% cut. Will try to post a bit as soon as I have a bit more time.

IMA, You being a music producer and all, would you not agree that techno makes for a far better backdrop to football player profiles than does rap/hip-hop? A couple of years ago, I remember looking to see the kind of player the Dolphins were getting in drafting Dion Sims, so I watched one of those highlight and really liked the musical accompaniment. So much so in fact, that I forked over the 99¢ to include it into my library. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIoOaTl16uo

Enjoyed those highlights very much. Great piece of running. What made watching enjoyable was the absence of hip-hop, gangsta rap which typically accompanies these types of clips. I Shazam'ed' the clip and found it to be Headscan, by Viska. Nice piece of techno.

Jimbo, Stephen Ross accepted (perhaps even volunteered) surrendering one of the team's eight home games to the league for a very special reason. it will help their case when they lobby to bring a future Super Bowl back to South Florida. In the past, the league likes to see Super Bowl hosting teams surrender one of their home games in exchange for the rights to a championship game. I believe the league also compensates team owners for loss of revenue due no merchandizing. I'm not sure how the team settles that one home game with season ticket holders, but I'm sure they're not left hanging.

Keep our collective fingers crossed. They've got to survive this Saturday's game against Atlanta without injury. The regulars will see action going through the first half and perhaps two possessions of the second half. There shouldn't be any more risks taken after that, just bubble players playing their hearts out trying make the team or impress another suitor.

The JT injury to his quad doesn't seem that serious, BB. He should be at full force come regular season.

GB and Miami are not going to play each other this year, unless the near impossible happens, so any arguments ether or would be fruitless.

Don't discount how teams match up. Inter-division games are always tough. The Bills defense is one of the best, and if they could ever get their QB situation squared away would be formidable. The Jets, not so much, but again -- inter-division. The Dolphins match well against the Packers, for all FZ's trashing of Philbin, he actually provides a lot of intel, hence he prepared the Dolphins very well last year. Of course, his detractors will never admit to that.

IMA, a simple argument by comparison between GB and Mia. would suggest the following: 1. GB barely beat Miami last year, scoring with seconds to go. And 2. Miami has gotten better, while GB just lost their #1 offensive target.

When he asked the judge what time he had I thought for a second that the judge would instruct the bailiff to punch Woodcock in the face.
