Bill Maher and Alexa bet against Tom Terrific and his buddies including #87 Rob Gronkowski. The secret of course is that #12 represents the western cowboy ideal; working for the right rich men, being strong of arm and keen of eyesight, and having a multiplicity of pretty women on hand with a casual attitude to formal marriage and fatherhood. Oh yes, blue-eyed Germanic Saxony origin close enough to the Nordic myth helps too, but the guy is a hell of a football player, coach, and analyst. Of course, the black guy who designed the stifling defense against the formerly high-flying chiefs had something to do with the win. He bombed as a Jet coach long ago.

Geronimo, John Henry or Brown. The involvement of their linebacker coach the son of their head coach in an accident costing injury and death the day before with alcohol and drug involvement revealed a dad unable to control or influence an offspring within the shallow framework of football.

The impeachment trial goes on with a frightening display of culpability on the part of the Merchant of Malice and weakness and lack of conscience by Republicans in both the House of Representatives and Senators.
