Bag of Randomness for Tuesday, February 1, 2022

  • If I understand the NFL landscape correctly, Thursday night football will only be available on Amazon, a streaming service. If I were them, I’d sign Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, and Sean Payton to announce all the games. The Manning brothers already proved thoughtful and entertaining with their Monday night hosting gigs this year. Amazon may feel the need to hire a play-by-play person, but I say do something different, and just have no play-by-play person, just have those two former quarterbacks and coach. They would not only be entertaining, but insightful. And, it would be delivering the same product like all the other networks, just in a different way. Now is the time to dare to be different.
  • I say instead of a coin flip for NFL overtime, possession should go to the team with the least amount of penalties.
  • Something I learned from Peter King’s latest column – Terry Bradshaw was tackled for a safety in his first career game against Houston, in his second career game against Denver, and in his third career game against Cleveland.
  • I just finished watching the latest season of Ozark on Netflix. I loved watching it with my wife. That Wendy Byrde is one evil woman, but unlike my ex, she fights to keep her family together.
  • I’m not a fan of the NY Times buying Wordle. I’m on a seven day streak.
  • Arose – This is the best word to start Wordle with, according to science
    • Personally, I like starting with “adieu”.
    • If we want a word that is most likely to get letters in their correct positions, the best option is “samey” (monotonous, repetitive, unvaried). But let’s not stop there. If we put these approaches together into one final score, we get a word that looks eyrie-ly familiar: “soare” (a young hawk) – “arose” but in a more strategic order.
  • Pope blesses tax collectors, says paying taxes is sign of ‘legality and justice’
  • Homeowner using flamethrower to melt snow sets house ablaze, Connecticut officials say
  • That’s about right.

    Troy Aikman’s comments on The Ticket this morning make me think that Amazon TNF is going to be a partnership with Fox and that he and Joe will be a part of it.

    I have yet to play Wordle and I was a little surprised the developer already sold. That seems awfully fast.

    I didn’t hear Troy this morning, but last week I heard talk that Amazon backed the money dumptruck up to Troy’s door.

    I think Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, and a couple of bottles of mescal that they imbibed during the game would make the Amazon broadcast amazing to listen to.
