Colts Run D just got worse

Early this morning Ed Johnson was pulled over on I-465 in Hamilton County (surprise!) for speeding. Instead of rolling down his window to speak with the officer, Mr Johnson instead tried communicating through the car's sunroof. His excuse: new tint on the windows. Reality: he just hot-boxed his whip.
Police brought in a dog to sniff the situation out and found ~10 grams of pot in his center console. This isn't the first time the Defensive Tackle has been in trouble with the law, although it is his first arrest since joining the NFL last summer. At Penn State (yeah, he's one of the 49) he was suspended 3 times including the 2007 Outback Bowl game for charges including battery, confinement, possession, etc. Obviously, no NFL teams wanted to draft the troubled All-American Honorable Mention, but Bill Polian decided to give him a chance as an unrestricted free agent. He and Tony Dungy told Ed what he needed to do, or not do, in order to remain an Indianapolis Colt.
Basically he violated the terms of his probation, so to speak. Now the Colts are left with a depleted defensive line for the 3rd consecutive year. First it was DT Corey Simon and his 'diagnosis' - not to mention the legal battle for his undeserved paycheck. Then last year it was DT Anthony 'Booger' McFarland injuring himself in training camp, forcing the Colts to place him on the IR and eventually waive him. Additionally, last year's 3rd round draft pick DT Quinn Pitcock abruptly retired before camp this summer at the tender age of 24.
DE Robert Mathis no longer has the luxury of getting rest as Raheem Brock's backup; Brock will be moved from LE back to his original position at DT, alongside 2nd-year player Keyunta Dawson. This movement allows DE Curtis Johnson to be elevated to 2nd string, and DT Darrell Reid should get more playing time other than just special teams.

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...

Fishers Medals Again

In the bustling Nickel Plate District of Fishers, Indiana, Tracy Gritters can recall a time when things looked very different. “It was a two-lane road 17 years ago,” she said of the property around her boutique store, Gallery 116 , where she has sold locally made goods since 2002. “We were worried about Target coming to town.” The retail giant eventually did — it's located about an 11-minute walk from her store — but the city's expansion hasn’t been the scenario she feared. Fishers, which was named MONEY's Best Place to Live in 2017 , officially upgraded from a town to a city and swore in its first mayor on January 1, 2015. Mayor Scott Faddness is still in office, and in the years since his inauguration, the city itself has been transformed. The newly developed downtown area became the Nickel Plate District , now home to an outdoor amphitheatre, plenty of retail stores and restaurants, a brewery, luxury apartments, and a high-speed internet coworking sp
