  1. Kirk Herbstreit is real famous…so there! And Rex Kern?
  2. It looks nice. One thing to remember—and I had this happen to me with purchasing Premier League knockoffs—be very careful as to sizing. I didn’t see manufacture country of origin on the website, only the “warehouse” in CA. I suspect the product is made in either China or Thailand—where a lot of knockoffs are made. The point is: there are so many manufacturers in these countries—especially China—no one manufacturer produces the same style as another…and sizes are particularly different. I am a semi-hefty dude, and always have to have XL or greater. I bought a knockoff Liverpool Jersey several years ago in a XXL (it would have been styled after the base design by New Balance). “Real” NB products tend to run smaller in fit normally, so I figured a size higher would do the trick. When it arrived, it fit more like a medium, and that didn’t work obviously. I have to give it away to a fellow (much smaller) Liverpool fan. Oh, watch the return policies too—that can get frustrating. Appearance comes into play also—color scheme replication and such. This one won’t matter much I would suppose, as it is not being sold as “authentic”. I should say, that I am referring to product knockoffs from the base manufacturer…e.g. Nike. They are not “real” Nike products, rather patterned after Nike. Some can actually look and fit like the “real thing”—I have two knockoff Bengal jerseys, and they are fine (although one can see the difference in appearance). Hence, the cost is significantly less than a “real” one My $.02
  3. Every one of them in and around my section were all Cincinnati locals. Nice folks, but not one of them had ever heard of Joe Kapp or Paul Krause.
  4. Good/Better: My 38th Opening Day in attendance (would have been 39, but for last season). And better, because of sharing it with brother Amish--who has also been in on a whole lot of those 38 Opening Days with me. Bad: Nothing at all. Well other than an oddity with the concessions purchase. Bought one beer, and noticed a $.34 extra charge. Ask the beer guy what that was for. He said he thought it was a credit card charge! Can't pay with cash, you know. Ugly: Me. After a sunlit 90 degree day and a two-mile walk on my aging carcass. Loved every minute of the experience, though.
  5. The original proposal made to him, was pre-Modell. In reality, Modell only came about because MB cut off negotiations due to Baltimore’s demands for a longer lease agreement
  6. NFLPA president criticizes league for COVID-19 vaccine wristbands https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.sportsnet.ca/nfl/nflpa-president-criticizes-league-covid-19-vaccine-wristbands/sn-amp/
  7. The Memo was clearly that tone. The hammer for non-compliance was spelled out, but the anvil for implementation was a bit sketchy. From my perspective, I highly doubt they will ever get to the point of game and pay forfeitures. Then there could be litigation, and the league is averse to that PR-wise.
  8. So far, the only defining instructions, are in the NFL memo, and that didn’t drill down further than “do it”.
  9. Uncharted waters. The Union hasn’t had a real statement as to the whole NFL mandate.

  14. A shout-out for the hometown of Columbus. There is a rather nice triumvirate of stadia downtown, and the accompanying creature comforts thereto. One may not like hockey, AAA baseball, or footy, but these are quality venues, and the district was built with the spectator in mind.
  15. Wolves…Coyotes…copyrights… OK…different canine species..no problem.
  16. Feel free to hit me up with any questions you might have. I haven’t lived there in a couple of years, but the place hasn’t changed that much—and I still have mates out there who are on top of everything going on.
  17. Contrary to popular belief, prostitution is just as illegal in Las Vegas as it is in Cincinnati. Need to cross the county line and head into the thriving burg of Pahrump before one can find the legal places. Where Allegiant Stadium sits, was historically vacant lots, old motels, and warehouses. The wondrous Strip is close—but separated from the stadium by 8 or God-knows-how-many asphalt lanes of Interstate 15. There will be a pedestrian walkway from Las Vegas Blvd across I-15, but it will not be a short walk. Parking will supposedly be abundant around the stadium, however driving will entail either entering/exiting off I-15 (a nightmare at even 3am), or traversing the perpetually jammed surface roads (stay off of Tropicana at all costs). Lots of taxis, of course—but they can get stuck in traffic too. Reportedly, the monorail will be servicing the stadium too. It is the most functional of LV transit. Here is a report from the local TV as to the traffic disaster for the Garth Brooks concert the other day: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.8newsnow.com/news/local-news/allegiant-nightmare-concertgoers-talk-issues-with-stadium-parking-transport/amp/ Happily, Clark County has been pushing ahead with “Fan Experience” areas around the stadium—looks to be sort of like the Banks. A few years off though. In the meantime, they have pepped up the immediate stadium area: https://www.google.com/amp/s/thespun.com/nfl/afc-west/las-vegas-raiders/las-vegas-raiders-allegiant-stadium-wynn-field-club/amp All in all, Vegas is Vegas. No one will not find something to do/eat/drink/fill-in-the blank. Having lived there, I can tell you there are a whole lot more things to do than hang around the Strip. But LV is a large area and takes a lot of time to get around, so go with what made it famous I guess.
  18. Here is the complete list: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bostonglobe.com/2021/07/10/sports/longtime-nfl-writer-ben-volin-ranks-best-nfl-destinations/%3foutputType=amp
