How is the NFL going to handle it when guys who play for the Broncos or Seahawks test positive for weed? I mean, it's legal in those cities.
Personally, I think drug testing is the biggest bunch of BS in the world, unless you work in an industry where it's a life-or-death thing if you get high. If...

I think he's made it clear he doesn't want to leave. Like he may have graduated from there. A couple of years ago, Gundy was angling for a raise and his agent said he had no plans to leave and Okie State was kind of being cheapskates, even though T. Boone Pickens probably had the money to cover the ...

You pick the best four teams. Screw who won their conference. The NCAA men's tournament has named number 1 seeds and the ACC and Big East have gotten two or even three teams up there.
The top 4 are obviously:

I like Smith a lot. I think he's good at coming across as a strange, awkward old man in a young person's body. He's also got a good light comic touch. As much as I like Tennant, he has a tendency to chew up scenery -- the prosecution calls all of "The End of Time" as evidence.

I put Smith and Tennant ahead of T. Baker for my top 3.
They have hit home runs with casting since the show was re-booted. Capaldi looks like he'll be up there. Although really, there was no such thing as a "bad" Doctor -- C. Baker just got stuck with horrible scripts when the series was running ...
