So you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell
Blue skies from pain

“Look, someday, some marijuana company – the pot equivalent of Anheuser-Busch – will advertise on our games and give the NFL millions of dollars. Until then, pot is really bad,” said Goodell.
What about beating up a woman? I asked.
“You know, you’re right,” he said. “That is a tough advertising market. Let me rethink this. Okay, I was wrong. From now on, beating up a woman is three-eighths as bad as smoking pot. Therefore, I declare we’re making tremendous progress.”
That’s exactly what happened. Now here’s whatzgonnahappen Continue reading “Week 1 NFL Picks Suspended By NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell” »
