    Yes. Extremely sad news about a uniquely principled man. The stories being told about him are wonderful and I hope his legacy will endure. My prayers are with him, his family and his loved ones.

    You are so right, Jerry. He would hang around various parts of Three Rivers & Heinz Stadiums & just talk with everyone.
    There will never be another one like him...sniff!

    It puts things in perspective.

    Meanwhile, I'm watching the Squawks battle the Lizards to a 48-45 halftime score. Washington's not playing their best game yet.

    Hey i got a question for my fellow sports fans,what's with these owners today wanting a new stadium after only twenty years??? Talk about a bunch of spoiled billionaires,these clowns expect the public to finance most of these things just for the priviledge of paying overpriced ticket prices to see underperforming players lose and not even care...and we let em get away with it...that's messed up!!

    Yep. But as long as there's another city willing to pay for the stadium and essentially charge the teams nothing to use them, cities will continue to be held hostage. The Georgia Dome was barely 20 years old and only five years removed from a $400 million renovation when the Falcons demanded and got a new state of the art stadium from the city.

    The crazy part is that the owner was going to finance it himself outside of the county but the city didn't want to lose the revenue from the downtown area. Oh well, at least the food prices are going to be the lowest in the league so families can afford to feed their kids if they can afford tickets.

    Do you have any idea how long it's going to take for me to get used to saying "Los Angeles Chargers"? Or worse yet, the "Las Vegas Raiders"?

    Oh, and it looks like my favorite Cowgirl and I might be at odds on the first Sunday night of the season:
    Possible Falcons-Cowboys Sunday night opener has nice ring to it

    9:57 AM ET

    • Vaughn McClureESPN Staff Writer

    The much-anticipated release of the 2017 schedule is expected to occur on Thursday, as Detroit Lions president Rod Wood revealed.
    There are certain to be leaks regarding marquee games. The Boston Globe dropped one over the weekend when it reported the Atlanta Falcons are likely to host the Sunday Night Football opener in the new, $1.53 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium, since a Falcons-Patriots Super Bowl LI rematch is unlikely to be the Thursday night game to kick off the season.

    If the report is accurate, then Falcons fans should be in for quite a treat coming off a Super Bowl disappointment. And an opponent such as the Dallas Cowboys or New Orleans Saints would make it that much sweeter.

    From a national audience perspective, a Falcons-Cowboys showdown makes perfect sense. You would have the reigning MVP Matt Ryan facing Dak Prescott in Prescott's first game out of Tony Romo's shadow. You'd have the battle of 1,000-yard rushers in Ezekiel Elliott and Devonta Freeman. And you'd have two top receivers in Julio Jones and Dez Bryant. Not to mention a couple of rather visible owners in Jerry Jones and Arthur Blank.

    The Cowboys always have appeal as "America's Team," while the NFL no doubts wants to showcase Atlanta's new stadium, provided no more serious construction delays occur between now and the regular-season opener.

    The Falcons have opened at home the last three seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers coming to town last year, the Philadelphia Eagles visiting for Monday Night Football in 2015, and the Saints marching in to start 2014.

    Of course, Falcons fans would love to see the NFC South rival Saints in the first game at the new stadium. It would make for quite an atmosphere, with the Falcons-Saints games always a heightened level of spirited competition.
    The Falcons other home opponents include Tampa Bay, Carolina, Green Bay, Minnesota, Buffalo, and Miami.

    Last year, the NFL kicked off the season with a Thursday night Super Bowl rematch between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers. Last year's Sunday Night opener was the New England Patriots against the Arizona Cardinals.
    By the way, the Falcons and Cowboys last meet during Week 3 of the 2015 season. The Falcons won that game, 39-28, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

    He had a point and a right to be pissed. Kawhi Leonard shot more free throws than his entire team in that game. A foul is a foul, regardless of who commits it or who it was against. When one team is able to play physical defense and the other is consistently called for touch fouls, it's an incredible competitive advantage.

    First things first... The draft is next week. My guys need to either draft a starting right guard and a right defensive edge rusher. Your guys need to replace 75% of your secondary and find a backup to Dak. Not a lot for either team to fix in the next three months.

    The Skins? I think they might need to draft a chaplain with their first round pick...

    President Obama came in with Eric Holder. I think being a former President has done wonders for him. He looked great!

    Carolina won so I'm done with basketball but if the Wizards continue to float your boat....GO FOR IT. I understand why you would need some joy for ANY of your DC teams. I ain't even mad at cha.

    I'm still reeling after the tournament. I might prefer five straight blowouts while I'm watching the games, but dang if four of them being nail biters isn't more satisfying when you come out on top.

    What do you think about Patrick Ewing's homecoming as head coach of Georgetown? Any reasons for optimism? He's not experienced as a recruiter but he has plenty as an assistant coach in the NBA.

    An entire day without a drink? Wow, that's a heck of a sacrifice but a man's gotta do, what a man's gotta do!

    Don't read too much into it. He'll need a shot if one of his teams DOES advance. If necessary, he'll snort it if he doesn't drink it. There's always an angle.

    Yah, the sooner they can claim home court advantage, the better. They got off to a great start but ran out of gas halfway into the third quarter.

    As I type, the Wizards lead by 18 points. Red might want to put out the cigar and pour himself a shot of Irish whiskey.

    I dunno, Cowboy. It's hard to beat a good team four games in a row. And if they beat them in game 5, all bets are off for game 6.

    Let's see how they play with their backs up against the wall. I turned the last game off because they didn't even look like they wanted to be there. Hopefully, they'll have more pride tonight.

    But after what happened in Houston, I don't know if "pride" is something that NBA players have in abundance.

    Yeah, the Smelltics were real funny, rolling off the bus dressed for a funeral and all. No surprise that it motivated your guys. But man, y'all HAVE to win a game on the road.

    By the way, I love that your boys were down by two and went for the win instead of a tie. I bet Wall plays his butt off in game 7. His confidence should be sky high.
