It’s about the captaincy. It has to be. Za’Darius Smith’s cryptic tweet was shared widely, coming in the wake of both the Packers’ captain announcements as well as the news that Ravens running back Gus Edwards and cornerback Marcus Peters had torn their ACLs on consecutive plays. A lot…

Some won’t see it like this; that’s fine. If you’re able to function normally as a Packers fan after the last two years, that’s a virtue. You’re a valuable part of the fanbase and your excitement and optimism is needed.

Couldn’t be me, though.

The second consecutive NFC Championship loss…

Will the Bucks eclipse the Suns? Some meaningful anticipations ahead of Game 5:

The Bucks sit two wins from a championship. They must win two of three games, with only one chance to play at home and the other two coming in the hostile heat of Phoenix. It is a…

To potential third-party voters

As I begin writing this, I must look up Jo Jorgensen, because I don’t know her. Most don’t. Most won’t, unfortunately. Despite being chosen as the Libertarian nominee in May, months before the Democratic and Republican conventions coronated their respective nominees, Jorgensen has failed to gain…
