Morning Cup Of Joe

May 22nd, 2024

Welcome to your Morning Cup of Joe, an eye-opener to help Joe’s readers ease into their busy workday with a few football links, wacky news and a pleasant distraction.

Distraction of the Day

Justin Fields thanks Bears for trading him to the Steelers. Do you blame him? [PFT]

Not sure why people are celebrating the end of chain gangs. Joe thinks they are vital. When at the game, Joe wants to know where the first down is. There’s no such thing as a yellow line at the game. (And apparently, the chain gangs are not an endangered species after all.) [CBS]

Chaos in Stinking Panthers territory. Kicker Eddy Pineiro sits out OTAs wanting a new deal. What will Dave Canales do? [Yahoo!]

Australia joins Ireland in the on-deck circle to host an international NFL game as the NFL studies playing a regular season game there. Spain will get one next year joining Great Britain, Germany and Brazil hosting NFL games. As many as eight games will be played on foreign soil in 2025. [NFL]

You trust your dog this much? [TikTok]

Seems Ryan Leaf has a beef with Jay Glazer. [Outkick]

The Longhorn Network has been put out to pasture. [Awful Announcing]

Visa scam goes bad. “Robber” shot by Good Samaritan in Texas in a staged burglary-for-hire stunt. [FOX 26 Houston]

Kay Adams gets so horny when Shams Charania (a sometimes Adams’ boyfriend?) appears on her show. [X]

When Nick Saban had to eat humble pie. [TikTok]

    Ahhh memories. My fantasy football team was named The Screaming Leafs for a couple seasons.

    “Not sure why people are celebrating the end of chain gangs.” Dang, for a second I thought this line was a “Cool Hand Luke” reference.

    Ryan Leaf…pffftt! Dude hasn’t been relevant since……well, never.

    Jay Glazer is the real deal. Much respect for him.

    Eddy Pineiro sitting out during OTAs and contract agreements. It’s all voluntary right now, so let him. I think he missed the mini camps in April too. It sounds like the backup kicker is taking his place right now. Hopefully, Canales has reached out to Pineiro during this time to check on him, being a nice gesture.

    Love to see Kay get juiced up. To bad it’s not. Me. Putting the squeeze there.

    Love the doggy. I once had a weimaraner named Mojo. That dog was a rascal and that chicken would have disappeared in my absence. Miss that good boy.

    Chain gangs

    They’re not going away, but I think using this technology to get the spot of the ball as accurate as possible is a good thing.

    I tell you wut, you just can’t find distractions like today’s link!

    And yet, I also find them everywhere on the Net lately….

    My mom set the table with a 5 pound ham one night then came into the living room to get us for dinner. Maybe two minutes and the ham was gone. Where’re the ham? My Shepard had jumped on the table and ate the whole thing. Even the plate was weas licked clean. My dad made us pancakes that night.

  8. D-Rok Says:

    Hims a good boy! Well-trained, also. Can you imagine to a dog just how wonderful the smell of chicken would be? Well done, mate!

  9. unbelievable Says:

    Hahaha my dog would wait about 30 seconds and then devour that food.

    Re: the Visa scam, the so-called “good samaritan” was actually a felon on probation who wasn’t allowed to have a gun… So everyone in that story is an idiot.

  10. Lt. Dan Says:

    @ Unbelievable: It gets even worse. For the victim to even be considered for the U Visa, they are required to cooperate with the police (like identifying the suspect to a certainty) and cooperate through the entire court process. Which in this case would require the victim to testify against the person (suspect) that they were in cahoots with. Both idiots could be charged with a conspiracy. SMH.
