Oh, I forgot. The Patriots' pirate ship got a new paint job.

Former Giants and Colts back-up QB Jared Lorenzen died. He was 37. Man, that's young. Seems he had some sort of infection that impacted his heart. Don't know any other details. If the name sounds familiar he was the all time leading passer from Kentucky and was a pretty big guy. His nick name was "the Hefty Lefty", which is pretty memorable. I remember him as a back-up with the Giants but couldn't tell you how long he was there. I don't think he ever took the field.

Former NFL QB Anthony Wright was shot by his girlfriend's ex. Apparently he's expected to recover. He played for the Cowboys, the Redskins and - much to my surprise - the Giants back in 2007. I have zero recollection of him ever being on the Giants. I looked it up and he apparently took the field in 3 games and had a completion. News to me.
Is it football season yet?

Lorenzen was fat during his playing days (close to 300 pounds) and apparently became morbidly obese (over 500 pounds) after his career was over. He eventually sought professional help, but apparently too late. I saw a short TV piece on him last year where he said he decided to seek help because he began to fear that he otherwise might not be able to see his two children grow up. Eerily prophetic.

You don't see a lot of people that size in their 50s. You probably don't see many in their late 40s, either. Some people just can't lose it, which is a shame.

Just saw that Mark Sanchez is retiring. I'm not sure from what, though.

He's already achieved immortality. May as well move on.

Mark Schlerrith is not happy with the way some NFLers are entering camp. A guy came in the back of a Brinks truck and Antonio Brown came in on a hot air balloon! So Mark Schlerrith talks about Man 101. Well, the LeBatard show took this to a new level. I love this show because they don't take sports too seriously and always seems to have a blast! The video is completely appropriate for anyone's ears so its time to take a 7 minute break. Sit back and prop your feet up because this is hilarious!

Brady signed a 2 year extension. He's 42. He's won like 50 Super Bowls. His wife is literally a super model. Why is he still playing? I mean, how much more money does he need? What does he have left to prove? Why not walk away when a) you're still on top and b) you can still walk away.

Seems nuts to me. When he won his 5th SB at age 39, I figured he'd walk away on top and let Garoppolo take over. Nope. He likes playing, I guess. He's not doing it for the money. As NFL quarterbacks go, he's making peanuts.
