But we stopped accepting Faxes in 2005

NFL water cooler talk isn't cool today

The numbers are in..



In metered market numbers, the primetime match-up between the 27-10 winning Washington Redskins and the Oakland Raiders snared an 11.6/20.

The worst SNF has performed this season so far, that’s an 8% dip from the early numbers of last week’s Atlanta Falcon’s 34-23 win over the Green Bay Packers. Gaining cheers and boos from fans at FedEx Field in Maryland last night, the third week of SNF for the 2017-2018 season declined 10% from early numbers of the comparable game of last year on September 25, 2016.

The outcome to the weekend is what I expected. Facebook and Twitter are filled with memes and jersey burnings, controversy and "I stand" logos overtop of people's profile photos... I have literally witnessed "virtual" online friendships ending this morning due to the kneeling controversy ...

Someone I know wrote a long post about how she will stay off of Facebook due to the debate. Perhaps I will do the same, only lurking from a safe distance.

This whole debacle about kneeling during the National Anthem has reminded me a little of the 'freedom fries' battle of the early 2000s. Back then France decided it would not support the United States war in Iraq. The Capitol cafeteria renamed French fries 'freedom fries' in a strange Orwellian protest. Some others in the nation followed with the same name...  

It was quite the hot topic then.

Cue now: 3 million without power in Puerto Rico, Houston still devasted, fires along the West Coast, Florida with many locations recovering, and a new hurricane looming in the Atlantic.. that coupled with some of the weirdest and most bizarre weather in a long time. North Korea threatening to shoot down a US plane.  Terrorist threats being made against soft targets... Crises abound.

And we? In America? We are busy. People are kneeling during a song.

We will get to those issues later.....
