Dear NFL, Can we please challenge the bad calls you later admit are bad calls?

September 20, 2015

As a New York Giants football fan, last Sunday night was rough for me. One of the most difficult parts of that frustrating and tough loss to the rival Dallas Cowboys, was two terrible calls by the officials. On Thursday, the NFL told the team that they did make mistakes in important calls in the game. This only adds to the frustration of a very imperfect game.

And I ran my office’s first ever suicide pool last year and had a perfect season, something I have to brag about because it was awesome.

April 27, 2012

The NFL is also a fashion show where top prospects show off proper courtroom attire that will likely be shown to a judge sometime in the near future.
