Colts claim Perkins off waivers

Taken in the fourth round by the Cleveland Browns 2 yrs ago, Antonio Perkins has decent size and speed. He left Oklahoma with 125 career tackles, 11 interceptions, 2 fumble recoveries and a sack. He registered one of the most spectacular individual performances in NCAA history by returning 3 punts for TDs against UCLA and returning 8 in his career, both NCAA records.

Perkins has never returned a punt in the NFL, but has collected 3 kickoffs, averaging 27½ yards.


This is hard for me to type, but I think I like Oklahoma U.
"But SchrockStar, I thought you only rooted for the home team?"
Tis true, but did you know there are over 30 Sooners in the NFL today? I bet you couldn't list more than Tommy Harris, Adrian Peterson and Roy Williams. They produce solid athletes with good character... and they also wear Crimson & Cream. Akin to the Irish/Hoosiers/Colts: the Sooners always abide by the rules and still win championships with class. Oh yeah, they also gave us 2-time CoY Kelvin Sampson. (I'd complain about the probation he brought, but I don't think it affected us.)
If I find it hard to tune into NBC on Saturdays this fall, I'll find myself tuning to FoxSports Sooner or later. You see what I did there? Zing.

Hyperbolic Obit for Hyperbolic Orbit

Did you see the lunar eclipse this morning? Did you see the one last month!? Do you even watch the sky, bro?? Comet Leonard [named after Colts All-Pro Darius Leonard] aka c/2021, the year's best & brightest, will make it's first and only appearance in the East before sunrise (between Big Dipper's handle & Arcturus) and then in the western sky after sunset starting on the 14th, looking towards the sun (ouch!)  I say "only" appearance because this happened 80,000 years ago but let's be honest they didn't have the tools we have now, and we're not yet positive this'll be visible to the unaided eye. But we do know it's hyperbolic orbit will soon fling the comet out of the Milky Way, and possibly into another solar system lightyears away.  RIP Comet Leonard 12/12/21 You're a Star (& comet)

64-team bracket BLANK

Go ahead and knock yourself out with this blank bracket, but I ( and Joe Lunardi ) find it more enjoyable setting the field before Sunday...

Indy vs. Boston battle for America's best suburbs

Joining Carmel as one of the best places to live in America (and the world), neighbors Zionsville and Westfield are now also ranked in the top 10 in the newest ‘Best Small Cities’ study, according to WalletHub:  https://wallethub.com/edu/best-worst-small-cities-to-live-in/16581 Boston & Indy suburbs dominated the top of the list, with Lancaster (PA) taking the top spot.  Not only is Indianapolis one of the fastest growing cities in America, it's the only city on the list not located in the South or West:  https://www.inspectionsupport.com/resources/the-fastest-growing-metropolitan-areas-in-the-u-s/
