My fantasy football tight end corps is awful and I have zero clue how to play them.  The only time they ever produce is when they're sitting on the bench because genius me is convinced that this is the week the other one will break through.  I'm pretty good at not leaving points on my bench except when it comes to TEs.  So far, my starters have tallied 24 points over 10 weeks.  In that same time, my benched TEs have scored 53 points which still isn't great.  My only consolation is that the matches I've lost would not have been turned out any differently had I started the other guys.

As I was watching the Bill Murray-Jeep commercial in yesterday's Super Bowl, all I could think was: I wonder how much Jeep had to pay him to convince him to do this commercial?!?

Nice comeback by the Chiefs, by the way. I thought they were done, being down 20-20 after 3 quarters. And it gives hope to all of us, Kansas City being a similar "small market" as Cincinnati.

How? The Bengals are still owned by the Brown family who remain convinced that maybe, just maybe, the stars will align and they'll trip their way into a championship.  Maybe on a personal level, they want to win, but they have no clue how to do that.  When you find yourself complaining about the exact same issues that have plagued this team for 30 some years, maybe it's time to come to the realization that nothing is going to change.

This perspective is where I stand with the Browns as well. Different team, different city, different owners...and same thing. Over and over again.

Well, I was at the most recent Super Bowl that the Bengals were in (1989). So it's possible, even under the Brown family ownership.

By the way, I think this was the first time in 50 years that the Chiefs were in the Super Bowl?

The Chiefs have been pretty good since Clark Hunt got the team from his dad.  When Rocky Wirtz died and his son took over, he completely changed everything at the organization and the Blackhawks have won three Stanley Cups.

So it happens.  But you probably have to wait for someone to die.  Mike Brown's getting up there now, maybe it won't be too long.  Just have to hope that the next generation didn't inherit the cheap-and-stupid gene from their dad and granddad.

The Euros 2020 have officially been moved to 2021. As has its South American equivalent, the Copa America.

And does anyone really see US sports returning any time soon? MLB moved back 2 months (so far), but there is rampant speculation that there will be no 2020 baseball season. And why would it be any different for MLS?
