Lions Mock Offseason 1.0

2020.11.29 18:10 zedd_gaskin1 Lions Mock Offseason 1.0

Hello everyone!
Usually it's my cousin who does some of these, but I wanted to take a very early stab at one myself, especially with all the excitement now that Quinn and Patricia are gone. Personally, sad it didn't workout for Bob Quinn, seemed like a good dude. Can't say I feel the same about Patricia, given how abrasive he was with a lot of players, doesn't seem like a dude I'd want to play for. Anyways, it's all behind us and Detroit is on to the future. In this Mock Offseason, I am playing the role of Supreme Overlord of the Lions, all decisions are mine and mine alone.

General Manager

Personally think there are a lot of good options that have surfaced recently as options for Detroit. My personal guess is that Detroit hires former Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff for the position, aiming for some stability and experience after an untested Bob Quinn did not make it. However, that is not the direction I'll personally be going in.
For me, the top 4 names for first time GM's are...
I think there's some questions over whether or not Dodds wants to even take the next step, so I think that Hortiz and Morgan are a bit more realistic options for this exercise. I think Morgan and Borgonzi would give you clear inroads to try and land a head coach like Daboll or Bieniemy respectively. Wink Martindale or Roman seems like decent coordinators for Baltimore, but not sure either would top my head coach wishlist, however, we are going to go ahead and hire Joe Hortiz to be the next General Manager of the Detroit Lions. The Ravens have drafted well during his time there, and he understands what a winning culture should like after witnessing John Harbaugh establish one in Baltimore.

Head Coach

With Hortiz being hired as General Manager, I'm not sure there's anything specific that he'd really be looking to do that some of the others wouldn't, in terms of hiring a head coach. The goal remains the same, hire a head coach who can build a competent staff, rebuild a shoddy defense, retool the offense enough to get the last few years out of Stafford or find and develop his replacement, and install a winning culture in Detroit.
I specifically like these nine coaches...
Now, I think if Detroit could go grab Borgonzi as their GM right now, they'd have a good shot at landing Bieniemy to come be their new head coach. Outside of that, I think the reasons to go to some of the other teams are a bit higher than what Detroit has to offer. For Houston, Watson is an elite QB at a young age. In New York and Jacksonville, you'll get the chance to add top tier QB prospects like Trevor Lawrence or Justin Fields while building your roster out with extra first round picks.
I'm unsure about whether Lincoln Riley would really leave OU, but he'd be fun to bring in for sure. Ultimately however, we are going to hypothetically land Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith as the next head coach of the Detroit Lions. His offense with Derrick Henry and Ryan Tannehill have been fun to watch.
For Smith's staff, we'll go ahead and bring Titans offensive assistant Luke Steckel along as the new QB coach, given that he's been working as an assistant with QB's in Tennessee recently (not the QB coach to be clear). He'll get a promotion to join Smith and ensure the QB is on the same page. I think we'll hang onto to Lions WR coach Robert Prince and Special Teams Coordinators Brayden Coombs in the same roles. For the TE position, I'd love to see if Vrabel could use his OSU connections to recommend that Buckeyes TE coach Kevin Wilson join Smith and the Lions this offseason. At running back, we'll make an attempt to hire Anthony Lynn if the Chargers do in fact fire him, assuming he doesn't land an offensive coordinator gig elsewhere. If not, we can retain Kyle Caskey. Offensive line coach is another big one. I think Hank Fraley was decent in his first-season running the group, but perhaps Smith wants his own guy, perhaps bringing Titans asst. OL coach Matt Sullivan, who has been with Smith in Tennessee for quite awhile and worked with one of the better OL's in the league recently.
On the defensive side, this will be the biggest question, as Detroit's defense desperately needs to be reconfigured. Personally, I'd love to see Detroit take a chance on Cincinnati Bearcats DC Marcus Freeman, as the Bearcats have a fantastic defense and Freeman seems like a rising star at the position. If they want someone more established in the NFL, then 49ers LB coach DeMeco Ryans seems like an ideal candidate for a promotion, given how well the LB's have played. Let's go with Freeman in this one however.
There's no defensive coach internally worthy of being kept around, though LB coach Tyrone McKenzie was with the Titans before joining the Lions, so that could be a possibility. We'll keep him out however, as we'll assume Freeman roles with a bit more of a modern defense, not the approach Detroit took this past season. We are going to dip back into the college ranks for another hire however, bringing in Pitt Panthers DL coach Charlie Partridge, whose unit has been one of the better DLs in college football. For the OLB coach position, we'll try and scoop up one of the few salvageable pieces from the Jets coaching staff, LB coach Frank Bush. In the secondary, we grab Kris Richard, the former secondary coach for the Dallas Cowboys, giving Freeman a more experience hand on the backend. Probably a handful of other spots to fill, but we'll go with that coaching staff for now.

Cuts/Trades

Detroit's going to need to shed a lot of dead weight this offseason, in order to gain some cap space with a reduced cap coming up.
The first casualty will be CB Desmond Trufant. His $10 mil cap hit is just a bit too rich for an inconsistent player like himself. Besides, he's at his best in heavy man coverage, and we're looking to mix things up a bit more. If you can find a trade partner for him, do it, but I doubt anyone would be keen to acquire his large contract.
Next up, cutting both DL additions from last season, Nick Williams and Danny Shelton. Both are mediocre players who provide very little for about $5 mil a piece. Additionally, TE Jesse James is cut, as he's overpaid for a very mediocre TE2. We'll still need an upgrade there, but he isn't going to cut it.
And lastly, we're gonna see if we can trade OLB Christian Jones to someone else. Probably can't get anything for him, so it'll be an outright cut here, but who knows, maybe a Patriots disciple will want him.
For trades, I am going to pull the trigger on trade. I'm going to send G Joe Dahl to the Panthers for a 5th round selection. Detroit has to keep Hal Vaitai in town for another season before they can cut him, so we'll start him at guard and pick up another draft pick for Dahl.
Finally, going to restructure the contract of QB Chase Daniel a bit, freeing up about $1.5 mil for Detroit.
Last thing we are going to do is franchise tag WR Kenny Golladay. Now obviously Golladay could threaten to sit out, but at this point we are going to hold Golladay on the tag as a trade target. I think the team that makes the most sense to acquire Kenny Golladay is the Indianapolis Colts, who will need a longer-term replacement for T.Y. Hilton. In this scenario, the Colts send their 2nd round selection in 2021, and a 6th round pick in 2022 to the Lions in exchange for Golladay and a 2022 7th.
Add in the rollover money from 2020, and this brings Detroit's cap space estimate to about $28.5 million by my best estimates. As we enter free agency, we have major needs at WR, DT, LB and FS, then also need role players at WR, TE, CB, and probably some depth on the OL and at RB as well. This is also doesn't even mention the plausibility of drafting a QB to replace Stafford soon anyways.

Free Agency

We are going to let a majority of our free agents walk. Notably, Marvin Jones, Danny Amendola, Everson Griffen, and Romeo Okwara will be playing for new teams in 2021. Depending on the size of the contracts they bring in, and what Detroit spends, might actually see some compensatory selections coming back. Wouldn't count on it, but it's a possibility for sure.
First up, we are actually going to re-sign a few players internally. I'd love to see LB Jalen Reeves-Maybin in a defense that fits him a bit better, and he's still a valuable special teams piece, so a 1-year deal for Reeves-Maybin at around $1.1 million would probably be the most he'd command in my opinion. Next up is WR Jamal Agnew, who is an excellent kick returner and developing as a wide receiver. We'll give him 2-years at $5 million total to bring him back, splitting the cap hit to only count about $1.75 to $2 mil against the cap this season. And lastly, we're going to bring back a couple of our speciality restrictions, giving original round tenders to CB Michael Ford, FB Jason Cabinda and TE Isaac Nauta as restricteds, while using the ERFA tender to bring back QB David Blough and T Matt Nelson. We are not going to use the ERFA tag on P Jack Fox, as he's definitely proven himself and is deserving of a raise. We'll instead ink him to a 3-year, $9 million deal to remain in Detroit as their All-Pro punter.
Now dipping into the external realm, the first thing we're going to do is target some beef on the interior defensive line, as we've cut Shelton and Williams and cannot rely on Da'Shawn Hand to be healthy. One guy I'd love for Detroit to add is Browns DT Larry Ogunjobi, a talented but fairly inconsistent player. He's able to provide a certain degree of interior pressure, so hopefully a contract mirroring the ones Shelton got could cut it. 2-years, $10 million for what is hopefully an improvement at DT. Additionally, we're going to add a nose tackle to start and rotate with John Penisini, bringing in Raiders DT Johnathan Hankins on a 2-year, $9 million deal to boost the interior of the line. We may still look for another piece on the interior in the draft, but for now, we'll stick with these two as reinforcements.
Next up is some attention at WR. Rather than go bargain hunting, I want to make a splash, and while I'd love to land JuJu Smith-Schuster, we don't really have the cap space for that, so a smaller splash like Texans WR Will Fuller at 4-years, $56 million seems more appropriate. A productive WR at only 26-years old, he's not as dependent on his leaping ability the way Golladay is.
Now, we still only have 4 WR's on the roster, with JuJu joining Agnew, Quintez Cephus, and I believe Geronimo Allison given that he opted out of 2020. We'll add one more veteran to the competition, and actually, I forgot about Marvin Hall Jr. earlier, but I'd love to bring him back to Detroit anyways, a 2-year deal for about $3.6 million should be a worthy enough raise to run it back with Stafford and co.
Next up, I want to add a veteran TE behind Hockenson, and given the timeline of developing younger TE's, getting an established presence thru free agency seems most viable. I really like the idea of snagging TE Trey Burton from the Colts, as he's a decent pass catcher, and even doubling his 2020 salary only leads to a 1-year deal at $2 million.
At this point, we're running fairly low on cap space, and still need to sign our draft class, so adding a few low end veterans on what'll likely be minimum deals is the move. These players aren't going to really count against the cap, as they'll either replace the base minimum already assumed in those spots, or get bumped by draft picks at a lower cost anyways. We'll go ahead and bring in the following veteran minimum guys... RB Senorise Perry (TEN), T John Wetzel (ATL), G Ryan Groy (LAC) on offense and LB Alex Anzalone (NO) and CB Fabian Moreau (WAS).
At this point, if we need more cap space, you could look into restructuring the current deals of some long-term players like OT Taylor Decker or maybe CB Justin Coleman.

NFL Draft

Using the Mock Draft Machine, except inserting my own selections for the two added selections (via IND in the second and via CAR in the fifth - Tankathon).
Round 1, Pick 9: This was a pretty easy selection for me to make, as LB Micah Parsons was off the board and we already addressed the interior DL in free agency. Detroit selects WR DeVonta Smith, Alabama, a premier player at a big position of need. He's been exceptional for the Tide this year.
Round 2, Pick 41: With no starting free safety, wanted to land a day-one talent at this spot, so went ahead and selected S Trevon Moehrig, TCU to man deep center for Detroit.
Round 2, Pick 55 (via IND): I was really hoping that he'd make it to this spot, and indeed he did. We need some serious injection of speed and tackling at LB, and LB Nick Bolton, Missouri should be a crucial piece to Detroit's defensive rebuild. He's a bit short, but he's dominated the SEC this fall.
Round 3, Pick 73: We really need an upgrade at pass rusher, and given that Quintricia really only stocked it with run stuffing DE's, Detroit would benefit if DE Patrick Jones II, Pittsburgh really does drop to the third round. He's one of the most productive pass rushers in college, and we just signed his DL coach to join us as well. Love this add.
Round 4, Pick 110: After addressing most of our top needs, we reinforce the offensive line here with a physical run blocker in G Ben Cleveland, Georgia. He, along with fellow SEC fourth rounder Logan Stenberg, give Detroit two young road graters to develop as depth.
Round 5, Pick 147 (via CAR): This late into the draft, really just looking for pieces that may have a shot at making the roster and developing into something useful. That leads to our selection of TE Kenny Yeboah, Ole Miss, a very productive pass catcher who plays flex TE for Lane Kiffin and co.
Round 5, Pick 149: At this point, ideally I'd like to execute a trade down but as I don't have their trade machine feature, I'm just going to write it in here, say moving down to the 6th round to pick up a 2022 late round pick as well. Then in the 6th, we take K Blake Haubeil, Ohio State to replace Matt Prater.

Depth Chart

QB: Matthew Stafford / Chase Daniel / David Blough RB: D'Andre Swift / Kerryon Johnson / Senorise Perry FB: Jason Cabinda WR: Will Fuller / Marvin Hall Jr. / Quintez Cephus WR: DeVonta Smith / Jamal Agnew / Geronimo Allison TE: T.J. Hockenson / Trey Burton / Isaac Nauta / Hunter Bryant OR Kenny Yeboah LT: Taylor Decker / Matt Nelson LG: Jonah Jackson / Logan Stenberg C: Frank Ragnow / Beau Benzschawel / Russell Bodine RG: Hal Vaitai / Ben Cleveland / Ryan Groy RT: Tyrell Crosby / John Wetzel
DE: Trey Flowers / Austin Bryant DT: Johnathan Hankins / John Penisini / John Atkins DT: Larry Ogunjobi / Da'Shawn Hand / Jashon Cornell DE: Patrick Jones II / Julian Okwara LB: Jaime Collins / Alex Anzalone / Jahlani Tavai LB: Nick Bolton / Jalen Reeves-Maybin CB: Amani Oruwariye / Mike Ford / Fabian Moreau CB: Justin Coleman / Jeff Okudah FS: Trevon Moehrig / C.J. Moore SS: Tracy Walker / Will Harris
K: Blake Haubeil P: Jack Fox LS: Steven Wirtel
Overall, didn't really end up in a position to take a QB I liked, as all three of Lawrence, Lance and Fields were gone, and I'm not sold on Zach Wilson or Kyle Trask at this point, especially not at #9 overall. If Lance or Fields drops a bit, would totally love to see them end up in Honolulu Blue, but I don't think Detroit necessarily has to land a QB this season. Think safety would need a veteran add after looking this over, and potentially some better depth on the OL and RB, but those can be handled prior to the start of the season with camp cuts and such. I like our explosiveness at WR, and got some better LB's. Now if Okudah can improve under a new scheme, I think you could start to have something here. Obviously you've still got a lot of old starters on defense, but managed to at least cycle some new talent in on the DL and mix in some fresh blood at other spots. It'll take more than one year, but think this could be a competitive team quick enough to give Stafford one final shot. Regardless, probably drafting his successor in 2022 Draft, and I'd love to get ahold of Sam Howell from UNC, even if it means putting together a package of picks to move up for him.

2020.11.28 17:24 ty-oh-tx When to apply for a school position?

Hi all!
I’m moving to Pittsburgh, PA at the end of this school year, and wondering when would be the best time to begin my job search for a school position. My partner is beginning a doctoral program in Fall 2021, and so I feel a lot of pressure to find a good and stable job in the Pittsburgh area.
I’m currently completing my CFY in a school in Texas, and I didn’t apply for this job until June of this year. Because of the high stakes of needing to support my family, as well as the relatively saturated job market in pittsburgh, I’m just wondering how best to safely navigate this job search. I fear applying too early and then having the employer select someone in-state who can start sooner, but I also fear waiting too long and then not having a job when we actually move.
It doesn’t have to be a school job, but I like the stability of it and quite enjoy the setting, but I also quite enjoyed my hospital placements.
Basically, I’m just wondering how and when to best secure a job from across the country. 😬
I appreciate any input anybody might have!

2020.11.26 04:56 Arrebios The Cap Economy on the East Coast

Hello Fallout fans!
Recently, someone made a thread talking about a possible FAQ for falloutlore. It reminded me of the fact that two of my posts on this subreddit (on synths and power armor) were made because I wanted something easy to point to when those topics came up. So, I want to do that again.
Quick Disclaimer: I do not use the Fallout Bible as canon. Not that it changes much in this case, anyway.
The East Coast's Use of the Bottle Cap
It's a topic that comes up often, with one recent thread focused on a possible explanation for the East Coast's use of the bottle cap. I disagree with the premise in that thread and have written about it before, so might as well compile it all in one place.

Nuka Cola and the Bottle Cap

Fallout 76 shows one of the earliest known instances (perhaps the earliest) of the bottle cap currency. For those unfamiliar, the Whitespring Resort was partnered with the Nuka Cola Corporation for a special promotion that saw caps used as legal tender.
Staff Bulletin, October 2077
TO: All StaffFROM: J. Wilcox, General ManagerCONFIDENTIAL - NOT FOR PUBLIC RELEASE
Several updates this month.* THE SPRINGHILL golf tournament has been canceled.* The Nuka-Cola Corporation will sponsor our first BUSINESS CLASS promotion. To celebrate the release of Nuka-Cola Quantum, Nuka-Cola bottle caps will be accepted as legal tender throughout the hotel.* The IRONCLAD SERVICE transition concludes this month. With limited exceptions, all non-management personnel should have received their termination notices. An Employee Farewell dinner will be held in Governor's Hall on 10/15 at 7:30pm. On behalf of the management team, I would like to thank you for your years of dedicated service to The Whitespring.
For completeness sake, it should be noted that robotic vendors accepting caps as money has happened before in canon. Hopeville and Ashton's military installations had automated commissaries installed which accepted ration chits to dispense goods. The enterprising soldiers of said bases figured out they accepted bottlecaps too:
Attention all base personnel:
The automated Commissary system has been locked down until further notice. It turns out that the "counterfeit-proof" pay chits we've been issuing to you are exactly the same size and shape as ordinary bottlecaps). Until we can correct the problem, you'll have to make your purchases the old-fashioned way.
-SSGT Lansky
However, there are no provided dates on those entries, so we can't determine which came first - the commissary trick or the Nuka Cola promotion. Likewise, this is more of a trick or glitch than any official use of the bottle cap as money.
Furthermore, we know that the survivors inside the Whitesprings Resort were still able to use bottle caps months after the Great War:
USER LOG - 12/14/77
When the world goes to hell, you don't expect much good news. Well, today we got some: Paula's inventory. We're set. With so few people left on the property, we've got food enough to last years, maybe a decade. Other supplies, too: clothes, meds, spare parts, generators. Guns and ammo, if we need them. Probably better off than those Vaults.
Can't be too careful, though. That Nuka-Cola promotion is still going on, so I've arranged for the robots to bring me the caps they collect, and I'll dole them out to the guests so they can buy what they need. Makes for a nice little rationing system.
I was trying to find information on the adoption of the bottle cap by the Water Merchants of the Hub, but neither the bottle cap entry nor the Hub entry have any in-game or official dates and instead rely on the Fallout Bible.
Unless we assume that the Hub was established the exact month of the Great War, this suggest that the East Coast use of the bottle cap predates the West Coast use.

Spread Outside the Resort

Here there is less definitive evidence. There are a few possible explanations for the use of bottle caps across Appalachia's robotic vendors:
We'll be sure to have a disbursement of ... whatever it is being used for currency up there these days credited to your account.
Or a combination of all of the above.
All we know is that by the time the Resident enters Appalachia in 2102, the bottle cap is in widespread use.

What Backs the Appalachian Bottle Cap?

"Backed" can mean two things, both of which are important here.
When people often ask "What backs the East Coast cap?" they are often thinking about it in comparison to the West Coast cap, which is backed by water or gold (the wiki entry only offers developer statements). In this sense, people are talking about caps as representative money. We can see examples of this thinking here, here, and here.
To answer this question on its own grounds, nothing backs the East Coast cap.
To answer this question in another, truer sense, social contract and software programming backs the East Coast cap.
It is fiat money. In Appalachia, bottle caps have value because robots (software programming) says it does, and therefore people agree that caps are valuable (social contract). At the same time, since people agree that caps have value, robots can be convinced that caps have value (Skinner).
It is impossible to disentangle these two social backers for the eastern bottle cap. Even if you remove one, the other will guarantee its resurgence.

West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Maryland

Disclaimer: The wiki does not have a full listing of all Fallout 76: Wastelander dialogue files, so some of these will require video evidence rather than quotations.
We know many of the original inhabitants of Appalachia fled during the Scourged Plague's height. The Raider faction from Wastelanders, for example, is comprised of native Appalachians:
The Raiders are no strangers to Appalachia. At one time they even called it home. After they caught wind that people were returning to the land they once claimed for themselves, the Raiders and their leader Meg decided to come back and put a stop to anyone who would dare snatch up their rightful territory.
In-game, Meg mentions being from Appalachia and leaving during the Plague (5:36 to 7:12).
Basically, we know that not everyone died due to the Plague. Some survivors or perhaps smaller groups of survivors upped and left, only to return later. This is not unreasonable given the above in-game examples as well as the real world distances between Fallout 76 and 3. There's a twelve hour hike between Harper's Ferry (Fallout 76) and Raven Rock (Fallout 3). There's a 24 hour hike between Morgantown (Fallout 76) and Pittsburg (Fallout 3). The proximity to these two locations suggests a causal link between the use of caps in Appalachia and them.

The Spread of Caps to the East Coast

To re-iterate:
We can surmise that the use of caps spread from Appalachia to the Capital Wasteland and the Pitt.
Exactly when this process began is unknown. As it how long it took. What we do know is that, by 2103, the Blue Ridge Caravan Company has entered the area, hoping for trade. It has seemingly retaken access to the Blue Ridge Parkway, connecting several counties and states together, and, according to Vinny:
Since we're one of the few sources of outside cargo coming in, even the folks up in Crater give us a pass.
Since they take caps as payment, this means that the cap still functioned despite the temporary abandonment of Appalachia, away from its robotic backers.
Furthermore, if we buy into this theory, we have an easy way to explain the use of caps in the Commonwealth and it's related areas.
Meg's wiki entry mentions traveling to the Capital Wasteland and the Commonwealth during Appalachia's abandonment:
We've traveled the Wasteland from the Commonwealth to DC. We take... whatever we want. And we want that vault. Who's going to stop us? You?
However, this reference is unverified, so take it with a grain of salt.
This reference, on the other hand, is verified:
You should have seen her back in her heyday! Why, we traveled up and down the coast, from the Commonwealth to the Broken Banks. Good times, but these days she's not fit to take out to the coast. Too many spouts ready to drown her, and too many critters looking for lunch.
Taken together, or even just alone, this suggests that there was a sufficiently flourishing trade between D.C. and the Commonwealth. This opens up a possible venue for fiat caps to spread to the Commonwealth (and Bar Harbor and Nuka World).
Coincidentally, if the Broken Banks is indeed a reference to the Outer Banks in North Carolina as its wiki entry suggests, it should be pointed out that the Blue Ridge Parkway extends to North Carolina:
The Parkway runs from Virginia all the way to Cherokee, North Carolina.
If the Blue Ridge Caravan Company's memo is real, then there is reason to believe there is both land and sea trade between the Capital Wasteland and some unknown group in North Carolina.

Some Possible Objections

  1. Could the Capital Wasteland, the Pitt, and the Commonwealth have come up with caps on their own?
    1. Yes. However, there is (as of this writing on 25/11/2020) no evidence that suggests this.
  2. Could caps become backed by gold, as suggested by the Resident in Wastelanders with regards to the Secret Service Vault?
    1. Sure. However, there is (as of this writing on 25/11/2020) no evidence that suggests this.
      1. Arguably, turning caps into a commodity money would be useless at this point. Caps already have value. It doesn't need some backing material resources.
  3. Could the Brotherhood of Steel have imported the idea of a commodity backed cap to the East Coast?
    1. As I mentioned elsewhere, the BoS would somehow have to become a big enough economic player and gain enough influence on the Capital Wasteland, the Pitt, Appalachia, and the Commonwealth to introduce the idea of representative money.
      1. They would also have to convince all of these regions that their fiat caps are worthless now.
      2. They would also have to convince Appalachia to just stop using the robotic vendors.
      3. They would also have to not be convinced to adopt a fiat currency by everyone else.
  4. Could the East Coast cap become a representative currency after the events of Fallout 76?
    1. Sure. however, there is (as of this writing on 25/11/2020) no evidence that suggests this. Neither Fallout 3 or Fallout 4 suggest that bottle caps are representative money.
  5. Couldn't the cap have been introduced by a Jet Road?
    1. Only if we imagine that a Jet Road was established before the Bombs dropped and the Nuka Cola Corporation ran their promotion.
      1. Frankly, I put negative stock into the Jet Road theory.

Quick Summary

Appalachia gave the East Coast the use of bottle caps. On the East Coast, bottle caps are fiat money, backed up by social agreement. Attempts to turn it into a commodity money have either failed or were never attempted in the first place.
I can't think of anything else to add, and I think I'm reaching the 1k word limit, so that'll be all. Feel free to add on or critique.

2020.11.26 03:17 kjo24 Commuting question! (New to the area)

My partner and I relocating to Pittsburgh at the beginning of the year for work and we’re both slightly unfamiliar with the area. He will be working in the Greentree area and I will be working in the Shadyside area and eventually starting grad school at Pitt. Obviously a commute will be inevitable for one of us, but what area would you recommend for living that wouldn’t make a commute miserable? Is there a place in the middle where we’d have equal commutes? My partner will be working during second shift while I’ll be on rotating shifts. We’re in our late 20s, have a dog and will be renting, so it would be ideal to be in a dog friendly area!

2020.11.26 00:48 deedee07_ Here is the beanble :)

Genesis 1, The Beginning
In the beginning, Henry J Heinz created the Heinz Noble & Company. Now the earth was better than it was before, darkness was cleared from the world and everything made sense, finally we had what we needed. Heinz...
Then Henry J Heinz said "Let there be Horseradish", and there was Horseradish. Henry saw the Horseradish was good, and he created more and more. Henry called the Horseradish "Heinz Horseradish".
Then Henry said "Let there be more Horseradish", and there was more Horseradish. But Henry had made a mistake, he created too much Horseradish and Heinz went bankrupt in 1875. Everyone thought it was over for Henry but he had a trick up his sleeve.
Then Henry said a year later "Let there be F & J Heinz", and so the new company, F & J Heinz was formed. Henry formed it with his brother, John Heinz, and his cousin Frederick Heinz.
Then Henry said "Let there be Ketchup", and so there was Ketchup. Henry decided to name this "Heinz Tomato Ketchup", this was a big step for the Heinz Company.
Then Henry said in 1888 "Let there be no partners", and it was so. Henry J Heinz Bought out his partners, John Heinz and Frederick Heinz, the company name was changed from F & J Heinz to H. J. Heinz. Company
Then Henry said in 1896 "Let there be a slogan", and it was so. Henry J Heinz created the famous slogan "57 Varieties". He picked it as he saw an advertisement on a train, advertising 21 styles of shoes. Henry picked the number he wanted at random because he liked the sound of 57.
Henry saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was Ketchup, and there was Horseradish, but one thing was missing... HEINZ BEANS.
END OF GENESIS 1
Genesis 2, Itbe and Fanta
This is the account of the Heinz Beans when they were created, when the Lord Henry made the Heinz Beans.
Now no Beans had yet appeared in Heinz, and no happiness had yet been created, for the Lord Henry had not sent Beans on the Earth and there was no good Bean brands to be seen. But Lord Henry, he had an idea. The Lord Henry had a child named Itbe.
Now the Lord Henry had planted a garden in the east, in Pittsburgh; and there he put the man he had birthed. The Lord Henry made all kinds of bushes grow out of the ground, bushes that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of Bush Beans, and the tree of Heinz Beans, one was good and one was evil.
A river watering the garden flowed from Pittsburgh; from there it was separated into four headwaters. The name of the first is the Pishon; it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. The name of the second river is the Gihon; it winds through the entire land of Cush. The name of the third river is the Tigris; it runs along the east side of Ashur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.
The Lord Henry took the man and put him in the Garden of Pittsburgh to work and take care of it. And the Lord Henry commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any bush in the garden;, but you must choose correctly between good and evil, for when you eat from the evil bush, you will certainly die." The woman said to Andrew Jackson Bush, "We may eat Beans from the bushes in the garden, but Henry did say, 'You must choose correctly between good and evil, for when you eat from the evil bush, you will certainly die.'"
"You will not certainly die," Andrew Jackson Bush said to the woman. "For Henry knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like me, Andrew Jackson Bush, knowing good and evil."
When the woman saw the fruit of the bush was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and almost ate it, instead she slapped Andrew Jackson Bush. "I am loyal to Heinz and i will NEVER eat Bush Beans." She then took some Heinz Beans from the good bush and ate it. She also gave some to her husband Itbe, who was with her and he ate them. Then they eyes of both of them were opened, they realized these were the best beans to ever be created.
Then the man and his wife hear the sound of the Lord Henry as he was walking in the Garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord Henry among the bushes of the Garden, But the Lord Henry called to the man, "Where are you?"
He answered, "I heard you in the garden, and i was eating Heinz Beans so i hid."
And Henry said, "You ate the Heinz Beans, this is amazing! I have spent years perfecting these and now the year is 1901 and i think I'm ready to sell them. How good were they?"
The man said, "The woman Fanta you put here with me, she gave the these Beans and i ate them, they were amazing, the best Beans i have ever eaten."
Then the Lord Henry J Heinz said to the woman, "Well done, how did you get the Beans?"
The woman said, "Andrew Jackson Bush tried to deceive me, but i ate the Heinz Beans, instead of the Bush Beans."
Then the Lord Henry said, "Well done woman, for you have not been fooled by the tricks of the Devil, Bush Beans are and forever will be our worst enemy."

Genesis 3, Kanye and Ben
Itbe made love to his wife Fanta, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Kanye. She said, "With the help of the Lord i have brought forth a man." Later she gave birth to his brother Ben.
Now Ben kept flocks, and Kanye worked the soil. In the course of time Kanye brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to the Lord Henry. And Ben also brought an offering, Heinz Beans. The Lord looked with favour on Ben and his offering, but on Kanye and his offering he did not look with favour. So Kanye was very angry, and his face was downcast.
Then the Lord Henry J Heinz said to Kanye, "Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast? If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, Bush Beans are crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it."
Now Kanye said to his brother Ben, "Let's go out to the field." While they were in the field, Kanye attacked his brother Ben and killed him.
The Lord Henry said to Kanye, "Where is your brother Ben?"
"I don't know," he replied. "Am I my brother's keeper?"
The Lord Henry said, "What have you done? Listen! Your brother's blood cries out to me from the ground. Now you are under a curse and driven from the ground, which opened its mouth to receive your brothers blood from your hand. When you work the ground, it will no longer yield its crops for you. You will be a restless wanderer on this earth."Kanye said to the Lord, "My punishment is more than i can bear. Today you are driving me from the land, and i will be hidden from your presence; I will be a restless wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me."
But the Lord Henry said to him, "Not so; anyone who kills Kanye will suffer vengeance seven times over." Then the Lord put a mark on Kanye so that no one who found him would kill him. So Kanye went out from the Lords presence and lived in the land of Nod, East of Pittsburgh.
Kanye made love to his wife, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Hisoka. Kanye was then building a city, and he named it after his daughter Hisoka. To Hisoka was born Irad, and Irad was the father of Mehujael, and Mehujael was the father of Methushael, and Methushael was the father of Lamech.
Lamech married two women, one named Adah and the other Zillah. Adah gave birth to Jabal; he was the father of all who live in tents and raise livestock. His brothers name was Jubal; he was the father of all who played stringer instruments and pipes. Zillah also had a son, Tubal-Kanye, who forged all kinds of tools out of bronze and iron. Tubal-Kanye's sister was Naamah.
Lamech said to his wives, "Adah and Zillah, listen to me; wives of Lamech, hear my words. I have killed a man for wounding me, a young man for injuring me. If Kanye is avenged seven times, then Lamech seventy-seven times."
Itbe made love to his wife again, and she gave birth to a son and named him Bean, saying, "God has granted me another child in place of Ben, since Kanye killed him." Bean also had a son, and he named him Hajime.
At that time people began to call on the name of the Lord Henry J Heinz.

Genesis 4, From Itbe to CJ
This is the written account of Itbes family line. When Henry created Heinz Beans, he made them in the likeness of the best taste in the entire world. He created them, males and females blessed them. And he named them "Heinz Baked Beans" when they were created.
When Itbe had lived 130 years, he had a son in his own likeness, in his own image; and he named him Bean. After Bean was born, Itbe lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters. Altogether, Itbe lived a total on 930 years, and then he died.

Genesis 5, Wickedness in the World
When Heinz Beans began to increase in production numbers on the earth and more people began to like them, the sons of Henry J Heinz saw that the women who worked in the Bean farms were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. Then the Lord said, "My spirit will not contend with humans forever, for they are mortal; their days will be a hundred and twenty years."
The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of Henry went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.
The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. Henry regretted that he had made Heinz Beans, and his heart was deeply troubled. So the Lord said, "I Will wipe from the dace of the earth the Heinz Beans i have created, for i regret that i have made them." But CJ found favour in the eyes of the Lord.
END OF GENESIS 5
Genesis 6, CJ and the Flood
This is the account of CJ and his family
CJ was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with Henry J Heinz. CJ had three sons, Shem, Ham and Japeth.
Now the earth was corrupt in Henry’s sight and was full of violence. He saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways, They started to eat Bush Beans.... So Henry said to Noah, "I am going to put an end to all beans, for the earth is filled with Bush Beans and not enough Heinz because of them. I am surely going to destroy both brands, even though one of them is mine. It is the only way. So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. This is how you are to build it; The ark is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high. Make a room for it, leaving below the rood and opening one cubit high all around. Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks. I am going to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy all life under the heavens, every bean that has been on the earth. It will all perish. But i will establish my covenant with you, and you will enter the ark, you and your sons and your wife and your sons' wives with you. You are to bring into the ark, the recipe for every type of beans on the earth. After the world has been rid of beans you will use the recipes to create ONLY the good beans."
CJ did everything just as Henry commanded him.
The Lord then said to CJ, “Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation of beans. Take with you every recipe of bean son this earth, and the seeds for them too, seven days from now i will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and i will wipe from the face of the earth every type of beans that has been made."And CJ did all that the Lord commanded him.
CJ was six hundred years old when the floodwaters came on the earth. And CJ and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives entered the ark to escape the waters of the flood. The ark was filled with beans, as Henry had commanded CJ. and after the seven days the floodwaters came on the earth.
In the six hundredth year of CJ's life, on the seventeenth day of the second month, on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened. And rain fell on the earth for forty days and forty nights.
On that very day CJ and his sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth, together with his wife and the wives of his three sons, entered the ark. They had with them every type of beans, as Henry had commanded him. Then the Lord shut him in the ark.
For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth. the waters rose and increased greately on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the heavens were covered. The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than fifteen cubits. Every bean that was on land perished, they were all wiped out, only CJ's beans were left.The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days.
But Henry remembered CJ and all the beans that were with him in the ark, and he sent a wind over the earth, and the waters receded. Now the springs of the deep and the floodgates of the heavens had been closed, and the rain had stopped falling from the sky. The water receded steadily from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days the water had gone down, and on the seventeenth day of the seventeenth month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat. The waters continued to recede until the tenth month, and on the first day of the tenth months the tops of the mountains became visisble.
After forty days CJ opened a window he had made in the ark and sent out a raven, and it kept flying back and forth until the water had dried up from the earth. Then he sent out a dove to see if the water had receded form the surface of the ground. But the dove could find nowhere to perch because there was water over all the surface of the earth; so it returned to CJ in the ark. He reached out his hand and took the dove and brought it back to himself in the ark. He waited seven more days and again sent out the dove from the ark. When the dove returned to him in the evening, there in its beak was a freshly plucked olive leaf. Then CJ knew that the water had receded from the earth. He waited seven more days and sent the dove out again, but this time it did not return to him.
By the first day of the first month of CJ’s six hundred and first year, the water had dried up from the earth. CJ then removed the covering from the ark and saw that the surface of the ground was dry. By the twenty-seventh day of the second month the earth was completely dry.Then Henry said to CJ, “Come out of the ark, you and your wife and your sons and their wives. Bring out every kind of beans that is with you, so you can replant them and they will increase in number, but do NOT plant the Bush Beans."
So CJ came out, together with his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives. All the Beans were taken out of the ark and replanted.
Then CJ built an altar to the Lord and, taking some of the Heinz Beans, he sacrificed burnt offerings on it. The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: “Never again will I curse the ground because of humans, even though every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all beans, as I have done."
"As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, Heinz and Bush, will never cease."
END OF GENESIS 6
~~~~~~~ extra ~~~~~~~~
Henry’s Covenant With CJ Then Henry blessed CJ and his sons, saying to them, “Be fruitful and increase in Beans and fill the earth with Heinz Beans. The fear and dread of you will fall on all the beans of the earth, and on all the birds in the sky, on every creature that moves along the ground, and on all the fish in the sea; they are given into your hands. Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the beans, I now give you my love.”
“As for you, be fruitful and increase in Beans; multiply on the earth and increase upon it.”
Then Henry said to CJ and to his sons with him: “I now establish my covenant with you and your descendants after you and with every Bean that was with you. I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.”
And Henry said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all Beans. Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between me and all living creatures on the earth.”
So God said to CJ, “This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all life on the earth.” END OF HENRY’S COVENANT WITH CJ
The Sons of CJ
The sons of CJ who came out of the ark where Shem, Ham and Japheth (Ham was the father of Canaan.) These were the three sons of CJ, and from them came the beans that were scattered over the whole earth.
CJ, a man of the soil, proceeded to plant a vineyard. When he drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent. Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father naked and told his two brothers outside. But Shem and Japeth took a garment and laid it across their shoulders; then they walked in backward and covered their father’s naked body. Their faces were turned the other way so that they would not see their father naked.
When CJ awoke from his wine and found out what his youngest son had done to him, he said, “Cursed be Canaan! The lowest if slaves will he be to his brothers.”
He also said, “Praise be to the Lord, the God of Shem! May Canaan be the slave of Shem. May God extend Japheth’s territory; may Japheth live in the tents of Shem, and may Canaan be the slave of Japheth.”
After the flood CJ lived 350 years. CJ lived a total of 950 years, and then he died. THE END OF THE SONS OF CJ
From Korean Man to Nezu
This is the account of Korean Man’s family line.
Two years after the flood, when Korean Man was 100 years old, he became the father of Arphaxad. And after he became the father of Arphaxad, Korean Man lived 500 years and had other sons and daughters.
When Arphaxad had lived 35 years, he became the father of Shelah. And after he became the father of Shelah, Arphaxad lived 403 years and had other sons and daughters.
When Shelah had lived 30 years, he became the father of Eber. And after he became the father of Eber, Shelah lived 403 years and had other sons and daughters.
When Peleg had lived 30 years, he became the father of Reu. And after he became the father of Reu, Peleg lived 209 years and had other sons and daughters.
When Reu had lived 32 years, he became the father of Serug. And after he became the father of Serug, Reu lived 207 years and had other sons and daughters.
When Serug had lived 30 years, he became the father of Nahor. And after he became the father of Nahor, Serug lived 200 years and had other sons and daughters.
When Nahor had lived 29 years, he became the father of Terah. And after he became the father of Terah, Nahor lived 119 years and had other sons and daughters.
After Terah had lived 70 years, he became the father of Nezu, Nahor and Haran.

2020.11.25 14:29 kcheng686 2021 mock draft V4

Draft order was from tankathon
1 - New York Jets - Trevor Lawrence, QB, Clemson - There’s not really much I can say here that hasn't been said. Lawrence is an absolute lock for #1. Dont fuck this up, Jets.
2 - Jacksonville Jaguars - Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State - Fields had a REALLY ugly game against Indiana, but he’s still pretty clearly QB2 in the class, and I still feel like he’s closer to Lawrence than the rest of the field.
3 - Cincinnati Bengals - Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon - Holy shit please protect Burrow. His injury just looks worse and worse. Cincy’s probably going to lose out and that means they’ll have a near guaranteed shot at Sewell, but if they somehow drop out of the top 3, IMO they NEED to take BPA OT. I dont care how good Parsons, Chase, etc might end up being, because Burrow is their franchise savior, and they must 1000% protect him with everything they got. Hell, draft an entire offensive line this year. This class is solid enough to where it might be possible. Also, hire a better OL coach.
4 - Dallas Cowboys - Patrick Surtain II, CB, Alabama - Last time Dallas picked this high, they had to make a hard choice between a game changing RB and the best DB prospect in recent memory. This year, there’s no game changing RB on the level of Zeke, so the choice is pretty easy, especially with how bad the Cowboys secondary is. Outside of the injured Diggs, who else is really a building block for the future? Surtain should give them a solid once.
5 - Washington Football Team - Trey Lance, QB, NDSU - There’s been a lot of hype around Zach Wilson recently, and I won't disagree that Wilson has been fantastic, but Lance is still my QB3 for this class. Some things you just cant teach, like arm strength, and if the success of guys like Josh Allen or Lamar Jackson have shown, its that teams can build around these game breaking QBs successfully. Yes, Wilson might be more of a finished product, but why the hell would Washington want a more pro-ready guy? They aren't even close to contending right now, and sitting Lance behind Alex Smith for a year ala Mahomes could allow for deja vu, or at least Lance to become a pretty good QB once Washington is ready to contend again.
6 - Chicago Bears (via LAC - Sends 1.16, 3.80, 2022 CHI 1st, 2022 CHI 2nd for 1.08, 2022 LAC 4th) - Zach Wilson, QB, BYU - At this point, I think Zach Wilson has raised his stock enough to where it’s very unlikely he’s falling out of the top 10, and that means the really QB needy teams are going to have to pay through the nose to move up to get him. Chicago might not end up being the team that picks him, but I think they’re currently by far the most desperate, for good reason. They’re a contender level team hamstrung by terrible QB and OL play, and Wilson might be the panacea they need for their offensive woes. His reckless brilliance has been exciting to watch at BYU, and if Chicago can hit here, they’ll blow their Super Bowl window right back open.
7 - New York Giants - Ja’Marr Chase, WR, LSU - When you’re a team that’s as bad as the Giants, just take BPA. And BPA here is arguably the single best WR prospect in recent memory. Darius Slayton is a solid WR, but he’s a better fit at WR2 than the main guy, and the rest of the Giants WR corps isnt really worth talking about. With Daniel Jones showing off enough potential to earn another year and all 4 of the top QBs gone, New York grabs themselves a guy who should be an absolute monster coming into the league, considering he was better than current stud and MIN WR Justin Jefferson.
8 - Atlanta Falcons - Gregory Rousseau, EDGE, Miami - Is the third time a charm for Atlanta? Atlanta loves their raw, athletic EDGE, but the last two guys in Vic Beasley and Takk McKinley have not panned out great, to put it lightly. Rousseau is a different beast than them though. Someone who lined up all over the Miami D line, he’s got the versatility to be a great chess piece while possessing enough speed and motor to be a consistent force on the EDGE. There is still some rawness to his technique, but this is a pass rusher who doesnt stop until he’s gotten into the backfield, with an extremely high ceiling. He’d be an integral part of the defense if Atlanta ever wants to return to the SB with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones.
9 - Miami Dolphins - DeVonta Smith, WR, Alabama - I honestly think DeVonta Smith is significantly closer to Chase than the rest of the WR group, enough to where he’s almost WR1B to Chase’s WR1A. And what better spot than back with his old college QB who he dominated with? Dont forget on a loaded roster with 3 other first round WRs including Jerry Jeudy, Henry Ruggs, and near lock R1 pick Jaylen Waddle, it was DeVonta Smith who led the team in yards and TDs. With excellent separation, hands as soft as that Minnesota - Purdue OPI call, and great route running along with an established connection to Tua, Smith might help out the Dolphin’s franchise QB by giving him a security blanket.
10 - Carolina Panthers - Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State - And the best LB in the class drops to the Panthers, who just lost Luke Kuechly. It must be fate, I guess. Personally, I’d try to look for a new QB, but Bridgewater is good enough to where no QB available is an immediate improvement, and Parsons is so good to where it’s a perfect fit of BPA and need. He should be the new Kuechly for Carolina for the next decade or so.
11 - Detroit Lions - Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama - The Lions CBs havent been great but Amani O and Okudah still have promise, and there’s not really an LB I’d pick this high, barring JOK getting an even more meteoric rise. So onto the last big need, WR. Golladay is a WR1, but Jones is clearly past his prime, and all 3 of the Lions top WRs are free agents this offseason. They need at the very last a new WR2, and Jaylen Waddle is good enough to be both an interesting complement to Golladay, or his own WR1. He’s an electric WR who can stretch the field and pull defenses apart the way the best deep threats can, and even has bonus functionality as a kick/punt returner. Golladay, if he’s back, and Waddle would make for an electric WR duo for Stafford to play with.
12 - Minnesota Vikings - Wyatt Davis, OG, Ohio State - Kirk Cousins has shown that he still has some juice, and although he’s not a Mahomes/Brady type QB who can lead to the SB, he’s certainly good enough to be a QB who wont cost you the SB trip. But if the Vikings want to keep Kirk consistently at his best, they need the OL, and especially the interior OL, to be as good as possible. Thats why they cant pass up on Davis here, who has almost no flaws and might be the best iOL prospect since Quenton Nelson. With Dozier’s return uncertain due to cap issues and Cleveland possibly moving to LT, there are holes in the interior that must be addressed. Worst comes to worst, the Vikings have two great OGs on their team. That’s a problem most teams would kill for.
13 - Arizona Cardinals (via NE - sends 1.20, 3.84, 2022 ARI 2nd for 1.13) - Caleb Fairley, CB, Virginia Tech - The Cardinals have an elite offense with Murray, Hopkins, and Kingsbury calling the shots, but man that pass defense is ugly. With Patrick Peterson aging every day and his contract expiring, they need a replacement for him ASAP. So Steve Keim, who’s no stranger to bold moves, mortgages a bit of the future to grab arguably the second best CB in the class, Caleb Farley. Farley is an outstanding press corner in the same mold as Peterson, someone who mirrors well and sticks to receivers like glue. He should seamlessly replace PPat if they choose to move on from the All-Pro this offseason, or learn greatly next to him if they bring him back.
14 - San Francisco 49ers - Creed Humphrey, C, Oklahoma - The lifeblood of the 49ers is their run game, built on the zone blocking scheme of Kyle Shanahan. Thats why the center position is so important to the 49ers. And its been a bit of an issue the last 2 seasons. Weston Richburg is oft injured and cant be relied on, and I’d be hesitant to rely on Daniel Bruskill for anything more than being a solid replacement iOL. Creed Humphrey here fit the 49ers scheme like a glove, having played a ton in Lincoln Riley’s zone blocking offense. He’d be an instant starter and with his high IQ as well as excellent leadership, should be a great fit for a young, hungry 49ers team that might be losing Richard Sherman this offseason.
15 - Denver Broncos - Shaun Wade, CB, Ohio State - With QB off the table here, the Broncos still really need a better CB1. AJ Bouye is mediocre on the field when he isnt injured. Bryce Callahan has been good but he was injured recently and might not be back this offseason to make room for Bolles and Simmons extensions. Michael Ojemudia showed promise to start the year but was snubbed completely vs the Raiders and Dolphins. There’s no Talib or CHJr anymore in Denver, a CB1 that Denver can rely on to erase opposing WRs. But Shaun Wade could be that. A great slot corner who also can move outside and defend the run at a high level (run defense ala Trae Waynes), he could be the lockdown CB that helps the Broncos defense return to their former glory once Von Miller returns.
16 - Los Angeles Chargers (Via CHI) - Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech - The Chargers should heed the Burrow injury as a serious warning of what might happen to their young franchise QB if they don't protect him. So, they grab the rising Christian Darrisaw out of VT, a massive mauling tackle who knows how to use his hands and possesses an excellent anchor. There are still some technique issues he needs to hone out, mainly his footwork, but once those are cleaned up, he can easily be an utterly dominant force on the OL for the chargers.
17 - Miami Dolphins - Jeremiah Owusu-Koramah, LB, Notre Dame - Miami doesnt go Parsons, but they get the next best thing in the class, a stud who's also exploded up the draft boards recently. JOK's ascent reminds me a lot of Devin Bush’s, who also went from a fringe R1-R2 player to a mid first lock. He’s small at 6’1, 215, but utterly explosive and flies around the field in both run stopping and pass coverage. With the Miami defense looking for playmakers, JOK can be that guy who establishes himself as the QB of the defense, and a swarming pest for any offense.
18 - Baltimore Ravens - Alex Leatherwood, OG/OT, Alabama - The Baltimore offense looks almost nothing like it did a year ago. The playcalling has gotten stale, the WRs cant catch and Lamar seems to have regressed, but the biggest problem is the significant step back the OL has taken after the loss of Marshall Yanda. Alex Leatherwood might be an OT at the college level, but he has the ability and anchor to be a mauling guard, something which the Ravens would love for their run game heavy offense.
19 - Philadelphia Eagles - Jaycee Horn, CB, South Carolina - The Eagles secondary has been a thorn in their side for so long now. They just cant seem to get their CBs to play well for some reason, and with WR hopefully fixed after the emergence of Fulgham and the addition of Reagor, CB needs to be addressed. A physical aggressive corner who knows how to properly use his size as leverage against opposing WRs, Jaycee Horn would hopefully shore up CB2 for the Eagles alongside Darius Slay, and be a building block that the Eagles can build around for the future.
20 - New England Patriots (via ARI) - Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida - If there’s two things BB loves, its trading down and versatile players. Well, Pitts is one of the most versatile TEs when it comes to receiving, able to line up all over the field for a team with one of the single worst receiving corps in the league. He’ll be a super versatile weapon for the Patriots, and if anyone knows how to get the best out of a freak TE, its gotta be Belicheck.
21 - Las Vegas Raiders - Kwity Paye, EDGE, Michigan - Paye somehow falls to the Raiders here, and they better run to the stage for this pick. For a team that still needs pass rush inside and out, Paye would be a perfect fit, able to play both DE/EDGE and slide inside to cause problems if necessary. He’s excellent at causing pressure, and Im sure Gruden would love this Gruden Grinder beast of an EDGE.
22 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Samuel Cosmi, OT, Texas - Donovan Smith is not the long term answer at LT. And even if Brady leaves/retires this offseason, they still need to bolster the offensive line. Samuel Cosmi is an athletic specimen of an OT who moves well all over, someone who is smart enough to plan out his attack and possesses a huge mean streak. He should be a great fit at either LT or RT, cementing himself and Wirfs as a great pair of bookends.
23 - Indianapolis Colts - Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota - TY Hilton is very done, and although Pittman has shown flashes of promise so far, 2 excellent WRs are almost necessary nowadays in the NFL. Bateman would fit great here as a big play machine and YAC beast, especially if the Colts keep Phillip Rivers for another season.
24 - Cleveland Browns - Jayson Oweh, EDGE, Penn State - Myles Garrett might be a beast, but he cant do it all by himself. The Browns need to find a better compliment to him, someone who can also put pressure on the QB so the opposing offense cant just focus on him. Jayson Oweh could be that. A freak athlete who’s been rising up the draft rankings recently, Oweh has all the tools to be a monster EDGE in the NFL. He does need polishing on his technique, but this is a high ceiling guy who could give the Browns their dominant EDGE duo of the future.
25 - New York Jets (Via SEA) - Terrace Marshall Jr, WR, LSU - Now that the Jets have their QB of the future, they should probably give him better weapons than the Jets currently have. Mims has promise, and Crowder is a solid WR, but it’s hard to picture either becoming the WR1 for New York right now. Terrace Marshall Jr could be that, however. He’s been a monster for LSU after they lost both Justin Jefferson and Ja’Marr Chase, and with how bad LSU has been, thats a serious accomplishment. There’s all the physical traits to be elite, and with his ability to break press coverage and grab contested balls, he’ll could be the guy that Lawrence develops an excellent bond with in the future.
26 - Green Bay Packers - Jay Tufele, DT, USC - The Packers have a stud in Kenny Clark and a decent DT in Keke Kingsley, but outside of that, the DT depth is pretty dire. And with the best DT prospect in the class dropping right into their laps, its too hard to pass up Tufele here. Jay Tufele can be a dominant force when he’s on, almost completely unblockable at times, and can play both the 1/3T, allowing for Clark to be able to move around if needed for better matchups. WIth his explosiveness and powerful hands, a defensive line of Clark, Keke, and Tufele could be an absolute nightmare for the OLines of the NFC North.
27 - Tennessee Titans - Joseph Ossai, EDGE, Texas - The Titans pass rush has been anemic, and it’s certainly not going to get better after the likely loss of Jadeveon Clowney this offseason. They need someone to pair with Harold Landry, and Joseph Ossai could be the answer here. A quick trigger pass rusher who has plenty of room for improvement, Ossai presents a tantalizing option for Tennessee as someone who has the ability to become a very dominant pass rusher. He’d be a great fit in the Titans hybrid defense, and could grow into a cornerstone alongside Simmons and Landry on the DL.
28 - Buffalo Bills - Eric Stokes, CB, Georgia - There’s a huge hole in the Bills defense opposite of Tre White, something that has caused their defense to go from elite to horrid in one year. They need someone to help out White, and Eric Stokes could be that guy. No stranger to being paired up with great CBs, Stokes has actually outplayed his more hyped partner in Tyson Campbell this year, and with his excellent agility and great instincts, can be a smothering corner who can lock down WR1s with the help of his FS.
29 - Jacksonville Jaguars (via LAR) - Liam Eichenburg, OT, Notre Dame - As I mentioned before, if you have a young franchise QB, you need to protect him. With serious problems on their OL and Justin Fields coming in as their new savior, the Jaguars look to protect their investment by solidifying one of the tackle spots on the OL. Liam Eichenburg is another product of the Notre Dame OL machine, with an excellent build and great strength to thrive in power blocking schemes. He’s especially effective at clearing the way, which is not only great for James Robinson and the run game, but mobile QBs like Fields if they need to scramble outside the pocket. Whether he’s at LT or RT, Eichenburg should be a solid and well-coached OT for the Jaguars.
30 - Kansas City Chiefs - Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama - The Chiefs overall have been elite once again this year, but there’s one clear flaw in their team, the run defense, which ranks in the bottom 5 in the league. Good thing Dylan Moses is available here. He’s an elite athlete with plenty of range and can hit like a truck. He also knows when to wrap up and is generally a sure tackler, which is a rather underappreciated trait. He does need to improve his ability to diagnose plays and shed blocks, but overall, he’s a force at ILB, and would greatly help out Chiefs ailing run defense.
31 - New Orleans Saints - Paris Ford, S, Pittsburgh - The Saints are hilariously over the cap next year, needs to cut about $95 million in order to become cap compliant. That means that S Marcus Williams is probably gone, as the Saints simply wont have the money to replace him, which leads to a big hole in the NO secondary. Paris Ford should be a seamless replacement for him. With the ability to play anything from single high to a role closer to the LOS, Ford is an instant starter, who excels especially in pass coverage. Interestingly enough, he also seems to try to become a missile too much of the time and needs improvement on his tackling form, so hopefully the Saints teach this safety how to wrap up properly.
32 - Pittsburgh Steelers - Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson - The Steelers dont have a ton of needs, and OT is probably the safest pick here, but James Conner is an FA after this year and there are questions if the Steelers should pay him big money. Travis Etienne is also the best RB in the class and easily BPA here. Etienne is an elite RB, who can break off huge chunks of yardage at a time and rip defenses apart with his burst. He’s also improved his catching ability to where he can be a every down RB. With Pittsburgh still a SB contender for the near future and possibly question marks on James Connor’s future, Etienne seems like a great fit here to both replace Connor’s production and keep Pittsburgh in title contention for the near future.

2020.11.23 02:18 JFKeveryday Small wound(s) in the front of JFK's head - PART 5.1 - Dennis David, William Pitzer, and Jerrol Custer

Skip to PART 5.2
Back to PART 4 - James Curtis Jenkins, autopsy lab technician
Back to CONTENTS
Dennis David was a Naval officer at Bethesda Hospital. David claimed to remember his superior officer William Bruce Pitzer showing him pictures of what appeared to be the autopsy of JFK. These images, David said, showed a small wound in the right front of the head. Pitzer was found dead on 10/29/1966.
On 5/1/1975, Dennis David appeared in a Waukegan, Illinois newspaper:
A Navy technician who filmed the autopsy of President John F. Kennedy may have been an early victim of a mysterious death syndrome that has been a bloody footnote to the assassination.
In the 12 years since the ambush in Dallas, investigators have identified more than 50 persons connected with the incident who have died under mysterious or unusual circumstances.
The death of the technician, Lt. William Pitzer, should be an early addition to that list, believes a Lake County man who worked at Bethesda (Md.) Naval Hospital in 1963.
The Lake Countian doesn’t want his identity made public. He contacted the newspaper after reading a series on the Kennedy assassination which concluded in the News-Sun Tuesday.
“He was shot with a 45-caliber pistol and was found with the gun in his right hand,” he said. “But he was left-handed. If he would have used a weapon he would have used his left hand.”
The technician had filmed in detail the Kennedy autopsy. Just before he was due to retire, ending 28 years in the service, he was found dead. “I’ve always believed he was murdered,” the former hospital worker said.
“They said he was depressed, but he was close to retirement and had just received an offer to work for a network television station at $45,000 a year,” he added. Information on the autopsy was vigorously sought at the time, particularly for evidence that would have indicated if any of Kennedy’s wounds were not caused by shots fired from the rear. The county man believes his friend may have been killed as part of a coverup of a conspiracy to kill Kennedy. Pitzer, a native of the Washington, D.C. area, was 49 when he died. He was buried in the Arlington National Cemetery. A cousin said, “At the time of the funeral there seemed to be little mystery as to how he died. We were told there was going to be an investigation into his death, but we never heard anything.” He is survived by his widow, two sons, and mother. Pitzer had enlisted in the Navy at age 21.
The Lake County man defends the autopsy as “thorough,” and “well-done,” but doubts that all the necessary information was forwarded to the Commission or made available to experts. He contends that one “ambitious” member of the autopsy team may have misrepresented the autopsy results when questioned by the Warren Commission, which concluded in its final report that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone gunman.
[…]
The man, who saw many wounded men while serving in Vietnam, said he saw slides of Kennedy’s wounds. “It looked like they came from the front,” he said. Commenting on the Commission conclusion that Kennedy was shot from behind, he said, “I do not believe there was just one individual shooting.”
(News-Sun, 5/1/1975, Another Link in JFK Death? by Art Peterson [link 1] [link 2])
Researcher David Lifton interviewed Dennis David at length on 7/2/1979. However, the story about Pitzer and the autopsy film did not appear in Lifton’s 1980 book Best Evidence. Lifton explained his opinions to Kent Heiner, author of the 2004 book Without Smoking Gun (2019 edition DRAFT):
As I review the emails between Lifton and me, I see that between all his denunciations of various and sundry persons - ranging from the well-deserved to the ill-considered - some wisdom was to be found. Saying that I was "dealing with people who are pushing an exaggerated and ever changing story," he observed: "Any normal journalist would understand where the truth lies in this situation, but you keep digging, as if there's some great secret being hidden." "I am in the business of evidence, not urban legend," he wrote to me. An "urban legend" might less pejoratively be called a "meme." The term has come to common usage in the context of internet cat pictures and the like, but it also represents a certain intellectual approach to understanding where ideas come from and how they spread. LCDR Pitzer's death is a fact. The idea that he was murdered to safeguard the cover-up of the true nature of JFK's murder is - regardless of its truth or falsity - a meme.
(Heiner, Laying Old Ghosts to Rest, Jan. 2015)
From Heiner’s Without Smoking Gun:
When interviewing Dennis David for 1980's Best Evidence, David Lifton had passed over Dennis' information regarding Pitzer, focusing instead on Dennis' account of the circumstances in which the - or "a" - casket arrived at the morgue for the Kennedy autopsy. In fact, by the time I wrote to Lifton in 2002, he strongly implied that David’s talk of Pitzer was a made-up story he had somehow been later induced to tell by Harrison Livingstone. Lifton wrote to me:
As to any filming of Dennis David, I interviewed him in July, 1979 by telephone. What he told me then appears in my book, verbatim, exactly as he told me. The book went to press over the summer of 1980 and was published at the tail end of 1980 (Dec. 1980/Jan. 1981).
I filmed Dennis David in October 1980. There was nothing about Pitzer mentioned in that filmed interview, which basically put on camera what he told me in our July, 1979 telephone interview. . . .
Somewhere around 1988 or 1989, Harrison Livingstone got involved in this affair and started to promote the theory that Pitzer's death was connected with the JFK assassination. He would call up various witnesses who I had interviewed and attempt to get them to change or amend their accounts about any number of things, but the Pitzer business was part of his agenda. Again, this was all in 1988 and thereafter.
Do you subscribe to the idea that its an author's responsibility to change his book to accommodate a witness who changes his story a decade after the book appears? Changes which apparently occurred after being lobbied by an assassination "researcher" who, incidentally, would call me up and leave death threats on my telephone answering machine? And send me similar letters in writing? [Livingstone wrote comparable accusations regarding Lifton in his emails to this author.]
This is the kind of territory into which you are heading. Do you think that's credible?
I first heard the William Pitzer story coming from Dennis David directly when he was being interviewed by KRON-TV around November 1988. That film shoot was not conducted by me, but I was present. The two experienced news people who were conducting the filming - producer Stanhope Gould and Sylvia Chase - were quite put off by Dennis David's change of story. It appeared to them so completely non-credible that they wanted to drop him from their documentary as a witness. However, out of respect for his prior interview with me (in 1979) and the prior filmed interview (in 1980) they did in fact use him in their show.
. . . the first I ever heard of Dennis David "viewing" "movies" of the autopsy was when he said so in front of me and Stanhope Gould in the fall of 1988, when he was interviewed (as I recall) by Sylvia Chase for KRON-TV.
Also, as I recall (and quite vividly) he said he viewed them and "edited" them with Pitzer, at his residence. Again, if that Dennis David interview footage is ever located, I defer to whatever he said. Suffice it to say that whatever Dennis David said on the subject, I had never heard it - or at least, heard it stated quite that way - until 1988, and Stanhope Gould was quite unprepared for it too, because it seemed completely bizarre and off the wall. As I mentioned before, it was so bizarre that it essentially destroyed Dennis David's credibility, and extreme efforts on my part were necessary that everything he said was not thrown out along with his allegations about Pitzer.
This was rather astonishing to me because Lifton had only been able to locate Dennis David in the first place after reading of him in Art Peterson’s News-Sun article (an article which, by the way Harrison Livingstone has taken credit for passing on to Lifton). After further discussion with me and a review of the 1975 article, Lifton did agree that Pitzer's film of the autopsy had been mentioned at that time, but he also maintained that the first he ever heard Dennis speaking of having viewed such a film was in 1988, as quoted above; this may be true, but Dennis David thinks otherwise, and his memory seems to be more reliable than Lifton's. David’s email to me in 2003 said:
In '79, when David and his film crew sat in my living room, I told David of my experiences of the 22 Nov 63. This included my feelings on Bill Pitzer. . . .the story of Pitzer he was not able to corroborate, for obvious reasons, and [therefore] he did not pursue it. Which, I think, was the legitimate thing to do. In 1998 [sic - he means 1988] sitting in my back yard under a maple tree, I told Sylvia Chase and her crew essentially what I had told David in 1979. That: 1) I had seen portions of a 16mm film in Bill's office, and helped edit a portion of the film. 2) I had also looked at photos, some B&W and some colored. 3) I told them from the film and pictures, both Bill and I drew the same conclusion that the killing shot was a frontal entry wound. 4) They ask[ed] me if Bill was in the autopsy room, and if he had taken the film and pictures. I told them I did not know if he took the film or pictures of the autopsy. I did day that "considering Bill's job at Bethesda, it would be logical to assume that he had, however I do not recall seeing him that night."
If David’s later testimony can be suspected of having been colored by anyone's influence, it would be Lifton, not Livingstone, who would seem the most likely source, intentionally or otherwise. Lifton bestowed minor fame on Dennis David in a book promoting a hypothesis which has direct connection to the later details of the Pitzer story.
In 2010, Lifton’s expressed opinion regarding Dennis David and Bill Pitzer was again highly dismissive and in contradiction of his own earlier recollections. In a post on The Education Forum, he wrote: “To make this clear: Dennis David, who knew Pitzer, does not believe Pitzer committed suicide, and has made a variety of claims about having seen autopsy photographs –and/or films—of the autopsy, because of his friendship with Pitzer. I should also add that Dennis David told me none of this when I interviewed him in July, 1979, via phone, and in Ocotber [sic], 1980, on camera; nor in 1989 [sic], again, on camera.” So which of Lifton’s tales are we to believe? The one in which David totally sprung the Pitzer story on Lifton and company during the KRON-TV interview, nearly derailing the program, or the one in which he didn’t mention it at all?
(2019 edition DRAFT)
Dennis David was contacted by researchers Harrison Livingstone and Joanne Braun, as summarized in Livingstone’s 1992 book High Treason 2:
[...p. 556, Chapter 27. A Proposal]
[…] Pitzer, according to David, had filmed the autopsy.21
[…] After all (according to Dennis David), Pitzer was in the gallery filming the entire autopsy with a movie camera, and David, a chief petty officer at the time-who had helped bring in the casket-helped Pitzer edit the film. David was a bridge partner and close friend of Pitzer’s for many years and used to baby-sit for his children. They all believe he was murdered.
What the film might have been used for we do not know. Nor do we know if it was made for personal reasons. Dennis David wrote the following to researcher Joanne Braun: “As to Bill Pitzer’s involvement, I never asked him, ‘Were you there?’ or ‘Did you do the filming?’ I have always assumed he did, but cannot verify that he was in the autopsy room that evening. I do know that he had the film in his possession at one time. When he and I looked at a portion of the film, we remarked only on the extent of injury, apparent point of entry, etc. Bill also had some 35mm slides which, again I assumed, were excerpts from the film.
I would say the films which I viewed with Bill were prior to the commencement of the postmortem, as there was no evidence of a Y incision on the torso, nor was the scalp incised and peeled forward on the face as would be done during a postmortem.”25
In another letter to Joanne Braun, David wrote that “the film slides I viewed with Bill Pitzer showed much the same as the pictures which you enclosed. First, I had seen and helped treat gunshot wounds and from training and experience had some idea of their effect on human flesh. Even high-powered rifle or pistol (375, M-1, M-16, etc.) entry holes are substantially smaller than their exit. It is inconceivable that anyone even vaguely acquainted with gunshot wounds would conclude that the massive wound in the rear of JFK’s skull could have occurred from a rear-entry projectile, unless it was from a grenade or mortar shrapnel, which tears and rends flesh and bone rather than pierces it. What appeared to be an entry was near the point of the arrow you drew on the right lateral picture. Also, the extension of the original tracheotomy incision appeared to be approximately twice the length necessary.”26 […]

Livingstone: Alright, the- the whole scene during the autopsy. We’re trying to- first of all, there were- was the, you know, was there a microphone hanging over the table, see the room is no longer there.
O’Neill: Of course not.
Livingstone: There was no taping going on?
O’Neill: No.
Livingstone: And how about filming?
O’Neill: No.
Livingstone: Did you know Commander Pitzer?
O’Neill: No.
Livingstone: Well, he was in the gallery filming and one of the men helped-
O’Neill: He might have been in the gallery, but when you say ‘filming’, what do you mean?
Livingstone: He had a movie camera, and the next day one of the men helped him edit the film.
O’Neill: I am not aware of that at all. In fact, when you say that he was in the gallery, we took a listing of every individual who was there at any particular period of time when we started.
Livingstone: So you’re speaking on the benches?
O’Neill: I’m talking about the entire amount of people at the autopsy room.
Livingstone: Yeah.
O’Neill: And he possibly came in later, I know several people did come in later. I don’t know if he was there at the start of it. In fact, to my recollection- go ahead.
Livingstone: But you’re- you know what I mean, the benches, they call it a gallery.
O’Neill: I don’t know what exactly what benches. They were up higher, they were not on a level with the-
Livingstone: Okay, but you considered that in the room and you took their names, of everybody up there?
O’Neill: We took the names of everybody in the room, we sent a listing around.

From Dennis David’s appearance on The Men Who Killed Kennedy, 1995, Episode 6: The Truth Shall Set You Free:
Three or four days after the assassination, I walked into this office and I saw, he was working on some film. He had a movie editor, one of those reel-to-reel that runs across with a screen. And he showed it to me, and it was a 16mm film of the autopsy. There were also some slides. He had some slides, that he had, that showed tissue slides and also showed some slides of President Kennedy that were taken from while he was on the table at the morgue. And we looked at them, kinda horrified I guess you would say, at the seriousness of the wound, but I remember that one of the things that I remembered was that we saw- they had a picture of Kennedy laying on the table and it was a front profile and the only thing we saw was a little hole about here in the temple [points just above the right side of his right eyebrow] and- in another photograph, another slide that Bill had, showed a huge gaping hole here in the back, and so Bill and I logically assumed that the wound was a frontal entry wound, as opposed to what the Warren Commission later said, being shot from behind.
[…]
Bill had told me, shortly before I left Bethesda, which was around the 7th of December, of ‘65, he told me that he was planning on retiring, because he had enough time in, and he was wanting to get out. And he also told me that he had some damned lucrative offers from some TV networks, and other people have asked me why I think he was assassinated, and I think it was because, that with him retiring, they- and I don't know who "they" are- were afraid he would take these pictures that he and I had seen, this 35mm and the 16mm film, that he would take them and if he went to work for a major studio that they would use them or he would have them aired, and that would really blow some people out of the water if that would have transpired. I could be wrong, I could be right, but I do know those films exist because I was there, I saw the damn things.

David’s story may have some corroboration from Bill Pitzer’s widow, Joyce Pitzer. From The Fourth Decade newsletter, Volume 2, Number 4, p. 16, Bits and Pieces: A Green Beret on the Periphery of the JFK Assassination by Daniel Marvin:
Late in the afternoon, on Saturday, 29 October 1966 Lieutenant Commander William Pitzer was found dead in his office at the Bethesda Naval Hospital where the autopsy on President Kennedy had been performed three years earlier. With a gunshot wound to the right temple, Dr. Pitzer's death was officially ruled a suicide, but family and friends found this verdict impossible to accept, not least of all because his widow knew better. In January 1995 Mrs. Joyce B. Pitzer told me unequivocally that she knew her husband "had parts of the autopsy that they wanted destroyed." She was speaking of our government wanting the autopsy photos he'd taken of JFK on 22 November 1963 destroyed. She told me that her husband "refused to do this." Instead of the United States Navy assisting Mrs. Pitzer to get to the bottom of her husband's violent death, they ruled it suicide. She knew different, but the Navy refused her access to the autopsy of her husband. Instead, she told me, "After his death, four of the Navy Intelligence were here at the house. They told me not to talk." She clarified that, saying, "and for 25 years I did not really discuss this." Even after a quarter of a century had passed, Mrs. Pitzer told me of how "Several of the Captains and one of the Admirals told me when Livingstone was writing the book [High Treason 2] to stay out of it."
On 2/13/1996, lead autopsy pathologist Dr. James Humes told the Assassination Records Review Board that there was a closed-circuit television set up in Bethesda Naval Hospital:
Q. Could you describe in a general way what the autopsy room looked like? You mentioned a few minutes ago that it was new. Could you just describe the room?
A. Well, it's about the size of the room in which we're seated, which looks to me like it's 30 by 25 or something of that nature. We had a permanently fixed autopsy table in the center of the room. We had a viewing stand, a two-place viewing stand, along one wall. I think it had two steps. It would accommodate maybe 20 or 30 people, because we used to have conferences in there. Routinely, at the end of a week, we would retain the organs from the autopsies of the week. In fact, not only did we review them there, but there was a closed-circuit television. They went to Andrews Air Force Base, NIH, and it was a closed- circuit instruction program. That platform, a two- step platform, was for observers.
And in an adjacent area, we had a refrigerated storage place with either four or six- -I forget the number--places for retention of bodies. And we had a shower and restroom adjacent.
Q. Was there any kind of gallery in the room other than the two steps that you--
A. That's what I'm speaking of. It might have three steps. I couldn't--you know, I don't recall how many steps it had. We used to get a fairly decent number of people. Maybe it had three steps.
Q. Was there any closed-circuit broadcasting-
A. No.
Q. --during the night of the autopsy?
A. No, absolutely not. I wish there was, retrospectively.

From the 7/16/1996 ARRB deposition of autopsy photographer John Stringer:
Q: One last question, and this is probably repetitive from earlier questions we have. Was there anyone taking any motion picture photographs -
A: Negative.
Q: - during the night of the autopsy?
A: Negative.
MR. GUNN: Thank you very much.
THE WITNESS: And how about Mr. Pitzer?
BY MR. GUNN:
Q: Was Mr. Pitzer present at the autopsy?
A: He was not present. In fact, I shot his autopsy.

From the January 1998 edition of the newsletter JFK/Deep Politics Quarterly:
[...p. 9, The Untimely Death of Lieutenant Commander William B. Pitzer by Allan R.J. Eaglesham and R. Robin Palmer]
[...] He found Pitzer working on a 16-mm film, slides and black and white photos of the Kennedy autopsy.[3] Vivid in his memory is his agreement with Bill Pitzer that those materials showed what appeared to be an entry wound in the right frontal area with a corresponding exit wound in the lower rear of the skull. Thereafter, on occasion, Dennis heard Bill refer to contacts he’d had with “agents” about the Kennedy autopsy materials on which he had worked. These references, made in the company of others and thus precluding further discussion with Dennis, were couched in matter-of-fact terms without hint of threat or intimidation.[4]

4 Dennis David, audiotaped responses to written questions from Colonel D. Marvin, 16 December 1996.
On 2/4/1997, Dennis David talked to the ARRB. As reported:
LCDR Pitzer's Film(s) of President Kennedy's Autopsy
Mr. David said that 3 or 4 days after the autopsy, a good friend of his, LCDR William Bruce Pitzer, who was in charge of Bethesda audio-visual services, showed him photographic images of the autopsy inside Pitzer's office. He said he was shown the following:
-A portion of a B & W 16 mm movie film, displayed using a viewer with two reels on it and a hand-crank (i.e., an editing machine); he estimated the size of the reel of film was probably about 10' in diameter, and that the reel was about half full of film. He said he witnessed only a short section of the film, which appeared to show the President's body during initial examinations, and before any incisions. He said the film was clearly shot in the morgue at Bethesda, but not from immediately adjacent to the autopsy table; instead, it was shot from a distance--either from the gallery, or from well back in the room. He said that other persons' torsos, from the waist down, and some gloved hands examining the body, could be seen in the film. He said that the motion picture film, although somewhat grainy, clearly showed a gaping wound in the back of the President's head, and that the top of the head looked intact.
-Six or seven 35 mm color slides of post mortem images of the President; like the movie film, these were also pre-incision post mortem images of the President. He said the slides were viewed by holding them up by hand in front of a lamp. (See below for description of contents of both slide and print images.)
-Four or five black-and-white prints, approximately 3" X 5' in size, of post-mortem, "pre-incision' images of President Kennedy. Like the color slides, he said these prints "made it very clear that President Kennedy was hit from the front as well as from the rear.' When I asked him what it was about the B & W prints, and color slides, which made him say this, he said that first, in both the B & W prints and color slides, he could see a round or oval wound. about one quarter to three-eighths of an inch in diameter, in the right front temporal area of the President's head, just below the hairline, which he immediately interpreted as a bullet entry wound; he also said that, just as in the movie film, there was a gaping hole in the back of the head. When asked, Mr. David clarified that the top of the head looked intact in these photographs. […]
(ARRB MD 177)
The autopsy’s x-ray technician, told the ARRB on 10/28/1997 that he remembered a man with a movie camera:
Q: In addition to Floyd Riebe's taking photographs, did you see anyone else take photographs?
A: There was a chief there that night that was taking movies. Remember how I had stated that he was the gentleman that had committed suicide, supposedly, and had the deformed hand - where they found the gun in that deformed hand? He was there that night, taking movies.
Q: Did you actually see him taking movies?
A: Yes, I did.
Q: What kind of movie camera was he using?
A: I would imagine, a simple eight millimeter.
Q: Was he wearing a uniform?
A: Yes, he was.
Q: And what was his rank?
A: Chief.
Q: Did you hear any discussion during the time of the autopsy about movies being taken?
A: Well, there was quite a few upset people from the gallery that were - didn't like the idea. But the chief just kept right on going. He said, "I'm doing my job."
Q: In addition to the chief who was - Do you remember the chief's name?
A: No, I don't.
Q: Does the name Pitzer mean anything to you?
A: Yes. Now, it rings a bell, but I'm not quite sure. But that name "Pitzer" does ring a bell.
Q: Are you able to elaborate at all why you -
A: Not really. I'm not sure if it was - It could have been brought to my recollection that night that we had the get-together in Pittsburgh. I think it was Pittsburgh. Yes, it was.
Q: But did you know that name at all on the night of the -
A: No, I didn't know that name at that time. No, I didn't. Some of this stuff is starting to come back.

Custer seems to be the only autopsy witness who claims to remember a person filming in the morgue.
In March of 1998, Jerrol Custer was interviewed by researchers William Law and Vincent Palamara (Law, In The Eye of History, 2004, Jerrol F. Custer):
Law: I want you to do me a favor.
Custer: Sure.
Law: I’d like you to- to put- tell me where the- the wound in the head was located to the best recollection.
Custer: The wound in the head?
Law: Yeah.
Custer: To the best of my recollection, it was in the frontal sinus on the right hand side. Just above the orbit, right about here [points to forehead above right eye].
Palamara: Okay, now you claim that that’s the entry wound?
Custer: That’s the entry wound.
(Video, 8:18)
[…]
Palamara: Okay, but it still jives with the notion that you saw a frontal entry wound [points to forehead] and you still think that [gestures to right hide of head] was an exit of some sort, even though it wasn’t technically back here [gestures to lower back of the head], it still made sense with…?
Custer: Remember the trajectory. Forty to forty-five degrees.
Palamara: Okay. Okay.
Custer: You're going in like this [gestures to left profile autopsy photo]
Palamera: Okay. Okay.
Custer: Are you blowing out the back of the head?
Palamara: No, not at that angle. Okay.
Custer: Frontal-temporal region. That's whats being destroyed.
Palamara: Okay. That would explain a lot.
(Video, 11:52)
[…]
Custer: Part of the cover-up. They don't want people to know. This is why the chief was taken care of, literally. He actually had photographic evidence they didn't want – they didn’t want out.
Law: And by "chief," who are you talking about?
Custer: Chief Pitzer.
Law: I know we went into Chief Pitzer a little bit last night, and maybe we’ve covered him enough. But, Dennis David who- who was Pitzer- he was- Pitzer was a mentor to Dennis David and they were- and they were basically best friends.
Custer: Right.
Law: I've been told by him that- that- that he helped edit film.
Custer: Correct.
Law: That night.
Custer: Correct.
Law: And there's been no corroboration from that- for that except that you- you said that you- you saw him, you do remember him-
Custer: Absolutely.
Law: Filming.
Custer: Right.
Law: And he, Dennis David also told me that he saw pictures of a wound in the side of the president's head. A small bullet wound in the right temple.
Custer: Now you've got to remember something, Dennis David is a layman. His anatomy sometime can be a- leave a lot to be desired. What he considered the side of the head could be here or here [points to the right front of his head]. But I would say the side of the head would be in the temporal region. There was no bullet wounds here [indicating the right temple].
Law: Really. Okay.
Palamara: He did mention on a- on a certain TV documentary, he did point to here [points to the right side of forehead] as far as whether it was an entrance wound and it appeared that President Kennedy was shot from the front. Viewing this film.
Custer: Right.
Law: So would you say that's correct?
Custer: I would say that's pretty close to where it was. When you’re discussing something with somebody, you don’t actually hit it right on, you can come off to the side a little bit [points above right eyebrow], and see where I’m at?
Law: Um-hum.
Custer: Actually, it was right in here. You can see where the- the fragment is, where it went in, the destruction. You have the picture, watch where the lines emanate from. There's a focal point. That's the shell entrance. Back to the same simple theory. Look at what you have. It's as plain as the nose on your face. Don't surmise ‘well, the bullet looks like it's at the back of the head there’. No. Look at your fractures. Where do they come from? Where do they start at? Where's all the damage at? You see damage on the frontal sinuses. You see damage on the orbit. The floor of the orbit. The orbital ridge. If a bullet goes in the front you'd have fracturing in that area. The bullet would come out that front, go in at the back and come out that front. You wouldn’t have no orbital area or the frontal sinuses. If you've ever seen anybody that's been shot in the back of the head and the bullet exited from the face, there's not much of the face left.
(Video, 1:04:20)
Custer’s earlier recorded statements do not mention a small frontal head wound (HSCA 180-10103-10116; 9/30/1979 and 10/7/1979 interviews by David Lifton, Best Evidence, 1980; KRON, 11/18/1988, JFK: An Unsolved Murder [video, 33:27]; Oct. 1980 interview by Lifton, Best Evidence: The Research Video, 1989; Interview by Harrison Livingstone, undated [draft chapter]; Reuter-AP, 5/30/1992 [link] [link 2] [link 3] [link 4] [link 5]; Reuters, 11/18/1993, JFK x-rays are fake, radiologist charges by Jeanne King; JFK/Deep Politics Quarterly, Vol. 1, Number 1, Oct. 1995, Interview: Jerrol Custer by Walt Brown; ARRB deposition, 10/28/1997 [audio]).
From The Fourth Decade newsletter, Volume 5, Number 4, May, 1998, p. 19:
UPDATES: NEW DEVELOPMENTS ON PREVIOUS ARTICLES
William Pitzer. The following information regarding "The Pitzer File," (issue of January 1998) was furnished by Vince Palamara in a communication dated April 1, 1998:
Oregon researcher Bill Law (see Winter 1997 KAC/Lancer journal) and I interviewed, for over three intense hours, Bethesda x-ray tech Jerrol Custer on 3/15 and 3/16/98. Among MANY other things, he stated: (1) Pitzer was present at the autopsy filming the whole thing, inc. the gallery with the military men, who flipped out upon seeing him doing this; (2) He also believes that Pitzer was murdered; (3) Custer also believes the circumstances for alleged suicide are extremely suspect, esp. due to Pitzer's handicapped hand/arm... This totally corroborated Dennis David who, when Bill Law phoned David with the news of this independent corroboration, appeared to be crying on the other end, as Bill told me!
In September of 1998, researcher Alan Eaglesham sent a letter and a copy of his essay “The Untimely Death of Lieutenant Commander William B. Pitzer to Dr. Humes. Than, according to Eaglesham:
One morning in early October, I was at work, as usual, in my home office when the telephone rang. It was Dr. Humes. I had not expected that he would respond to my letter; at first I did not understand who was calling. Here are notes that I made immediately after his call:
• He knew Bill Pitzer well and worked closely with him on films on tropical medicine for use in Vietnam. These were films made on video and transferred to film; WBP was in charge of the television part. He does not know whether Bill made the conversion to film.
• He does not know where Bill was on the evening of the Kennedy assassination. He was certainly not in the morgue.
• Bill was a "nice fellow," with whom he enjoyed working.
• I said that some people felt that Bill was the last person they’d have thought would commit suicide. He said that "suicide is a part of life." He believes that Pitzer killed himself.
• He has read the article (The Untimely Death of Lt. Cmdr. William B. Pitzer: The Physical Evidence) and said frankly that it is weak and that we are barking up the wrong tree.
• He was categorical that all photos at the autopsy were taken by Stringer. Bill took no photographs at the JFK autopsy. He (i.e. Cmdr. Humes) "was in charge of everything," and has total certainty that Bill took no photographs, neither did he expose movie film.
• He said that the morgue was new, and he does not know whether it was wired for closed-circuit television on 11/22/63. Certainly the autopsy was not recorded on CCTV.
It seems to me that his certainty that the autopsy was not recorded on CCTV, on top of uncertainty as to whether the autopsy room had CCTV installed, should be viewed with caution, particularly so considering that he displayed no such uncertainty in his testimony to the ARRB.
On 10/25/1998, Eaglesham received an email from John Stringer which read "I did not see Bill Pitzer on the evening of President Kennedy’s postmortem examination". Stringer had reportedly known Pitzer for nine years.

2020.11.22 12:24 TK27 This year just feels special

I’m gonna get kinda personal here for a second. I’m 31, born and raised in the Pittsburgh area. Everyone around here is a steelers fan. My dad, however, grew up watching the no name defense and passed his lifelong love of the Dolphins down to me. I love all sports, but the Fins are #1 in my heart.
During the down years post-Marino, my dad would always try to mess with me and say he was done with the team. But every year, he’d buy Sunday Ticket and watch each game. We’d talk about the team and how we we felt like we were gonna turn a corner soon, how the patriots would soon fall. It was a common bond for us, and something we could always talk about. I looked forward to those day-after-the-game conversations.
I lost my dad two years ago (fuck cancer). I miss him a lot. I like to imagine how happy he would be these days when we’d talk about the games, hear his enthusiasm for the coaching staff and how everyone plays for each other. This feels like a special team, and I know he’d be just as excited as all of us crazy fans here. I wish he were here to enjoy this with me.
I’ve gotten my wife into football (or at least she humors me) and the Dolphins. I watch the games with her now and go crazy jumping and screaming in excitement rather than anguish. We’re planning a trip to Miami, hopefully next year, to finally see the team in a home game. It's been great to have her as my new sports partner in crime. I'm looking forward to every game and seeing the potential this team holds.
And this place... I love the enthusiasm everyone here brings. The memes, discussion threads, videos and podcasts - it’s all incredible. This place has become therapeutic for me, and I thank you all. It’s awesome to be a part of this crazy /miamidolphins family, and I can’t wait to see what the future has for us. Let’s go Dolphins!
tldr: fuck cancer, go fins

2020.11.21 13:38 seb99581 I am 33 years old and make $121,000 with an approximate 20% bonus and annual stock awards, live in Pittsburgh, PA and work as a Landman in the Oil and Gas Industry

Title: I am 33 years old and make $121,000 with an approximate 20% bonus and annual stock awards, live in Pittsburgh, PA and work as a Landman in the Oil and Gas Industry (I’m a licensed attorney) This was my Money Diary from two years ago - https://www.refinery29.com/en-us/money-diary-pittsburgh-pa-in-house-landman-income
Section One: Assets and Debt
Retirement Balance: $152,000 in my company 401K – prior to paying off my student loans in November of 2019, I was contributing up to my company’s 6% match. Now, I am contributing 15% which comes out to about $700/pay period plus employer match.
I have about $10,500 in a personal investment account that I contribute $500/month that I opened earlier this year
Equity: I sold my townhouse in 2017 and moved into an affordable apartment in order to aggressively pay down my student loan debt. I moved in my boyfriend, in his paid-off home, in March.
Savings Account Balance: In my HYSA, I have a $20,000 emergency fund and $10,000 in a short-term savings account with the goal of home improvements and/or down payment for a home
Checking Account Balance: I have $4,000 in my checking account
Credit card debt: No credit card debt – I pay my balance off every month
Car Loan: I bought a new SUV this summer that was around $38,000. The loan is currently at $3,500 between a $10,000 down payment, trade in of my old vehicle, a couple $1500 monthly payments and I recently cashed out $10,000 in stock to put towards the principal. I plan to have this paid off within the next few months.
Student Loan Debt: $0 – I graduated from law school with $85,000 in student loan debt. After three years, I had made $30,000 in payments and less than half had gone to the principal. At that point, I sold my townhouse and moved into an affordable apartment and got serious about paying it off. I was able to pay off that $70,000 in a little under two years.
Anything else that's applicable to you: I receive compensation in deferred stock awards that have a three-year vesting cycle. I currently have about $3,000 in vested stock and $100,000 in unvested. The unvested is monopoly money because: (1) If I leave my job, I would lose it; and (2) The stock is volatile, and its value at vesting is unknown. I don’t have a specific plan for that money but would potentially use it towards a down payment on a future home or renovations in our current home.
I live with my boyfriend, Will, who paid off his mortgage in eleven years shortly before I moved in. We make about the same income. He pays for property taxes, insurance, and utilities. I pay for cable, internet, meal kit deliveries, Amazon Prime and Netflix. We have an active interest in each other’s investments and are on the same page about our outlooks surrounding money.
Section Two: Income
Income Progression: I've been working in my field for 6 years; my starting salary was $85,000 with 20% bonus. This was my first job out of law school. I have had two promotions since I started but my salary increases weren’t necessarily in line with the promotions. My biggest raise was in a year that I did not receive a promotion.
Main Job Monthly Take Home:
$5,762.55
Section Three: Expenses
Rent / Mortgage / HOA fees: N/A – Will owns the house outright and he pays for all property taxes
Renters / home insurance: same
Retirement contribution: see above – approximately $700/pay period, which, with an additional portion taken out of my bonus, maxes out my 401k for the year
Savings contribution: $1000 to HYSA (was $2500 but now diverting $1500 to car payment)
Investment contribution: $500 to mutual fund
Debt payments: $1500/month to aforementioned car payment
Donations: $50/month to a local homeless shelter that really helped by Dad when he was struggling with addiction. My boyfriend and I also volunteer at Meals-on-Wheels once a week. We used to go together every week when they needed us during the beginning of quarantine, but now that things have slowed down, just one of us goes every week. We also make ten bagged lunches for the homeless through a local church twice a month and I pay for those supplies which I would estimate to be between $50 and $100 a month.
Electric: Partner
WIFI/Cable/Landline: $177
Cellphone: Paid through work
Subscriptions: $65/week for Hello Fresh or Marley Spoon food delivery (3 meals a week); $13.90 for Netflix; $10.69 for Apple Music; $13.77 for Amazon Prime; $11.96 for digital local newspaper subscription; $14.99 Peloton
Gym membership: $10/month Planet Fitness + $22/month pretax for gym near my office. I’m not currently going to the gym, but both are so low I don’t want to cancel. I especially want to support the family-owned gym by my office.
Car payment / insurance: The minimum payment on my car loan is about $400, but I pay $1500. Car insurance is $370/every six months
Was there an expectation for you to attend higher education? Did you participate in any form of higher education? If yes, how did you pay for it?
I was always a very good student and there was an expectation I would attend college. Finances were never discussed when I was looking at colleges and although my family is not extremely wealthy, they had a “follow your dreams” approach to schooling. I attended a state school as an out-of-state student and my grandparents paid for the majority of the tuition – I believe it was around $30,000 a year. My parents paid for basic room and board expenses and I worked throughout college and in the summers for spending money. I attended law school and my grandparents provided approximately $20,000 a year. I graduated with $85,000 in student loans. After three years, I had paid over $30,000 in payments, but less than half of that went to the principal and I decided to really change my view on budgets and spending and get it paid off as soon as possible. I was able to pay the remaining $70,000 off in less than two years. I am incredibly grateful for the money I received from my family, especially my grandparents, and realize how lucky I am. My grandfather was a high school principal and lived very modestly his entire life to be able to save. I hope I am making him proud!
Growing up, what kind of conversations did you have about money? Did your parent/guardian(s) educate you about finances?
I don’t believe my parents ever discussed money with me in a cogent manner. My grandparents are all very frugal and big savers, but they did not impart that knowledge on my parents. Both are extreme spenders, with my dad in particular having IRS liens and at one-point filing for bankruptcy. I’d like to think I learned from their mistakes, but I also recognize that comes from the privilege of making a comfortable living. When I first started making money, I just assumed you were supposed to spend all of it and that’s pretty much what I did until 2017. I credit Money Diaries and this sub for teaching me so much about financial literacy. You guys are the best.
What was your first job and why did you get it? I
I worked at my local pool as an attendant when I was 14 and started lifeguarding at 16. I liked having my own money and as I’ll discuss further below, I didn’t like asking my mom for money.
Did you worry about money growing up?
Constantly. My parents divorced when I was 8 and my father lost his job a few years later. My mom went from having dependable child support to nothing and her job wasn’t lucrative at the time. She was constantly stressed about money and really put a lot of that pressure on me as the oldest child. I remember just being yelled at for everything I would ask for – whether it was cheerleading shoes or lunch money. This was also during times when we were going on vacations and living in a nice home. We weren’t poor but my mom never saved or accounted for any unexpected expenses. This has really shaped my mindset about saving and not wanting to live my life stressed about money.
Do you worry about money now?
Short answer is no and I think there’s three parts to that: (1) I have been lucky to find a job that pays me well, (2) I set myself up for success by saving and paying off debt; and (3) to live with my boyfriend whose good financial decisions have taken a lot of stress off of our shoulders. On the other side, I also work in a pretty unpredictable industry, so I am cognizant that this job may not last forever and I may need to figure out another career path. But I bet on me and know that I would be an asset to many companies and industries.
At what age did you become financially responsible for yourself and do you have a financial safety net?
I would say that when I graduated from law school and moved into my own home. My family is very close, and I know that I could move in with my siblings, dad or grandparents if I needed to. I would also consider my boyfriend part of my safety net.
November 5, 2020
7:10 – My boyfriend, Will, wakes me up with some cuddling. I have been having some weird insomnia so sleeping in this late feels awesome! This morning we are volunteering at Meals-on-Wheels, so I get up, make half of a bagel thin with whipped cream cheese and “Everything But the Bagel” seasoning and grab a water bottle and a Diet Dr. Pepper to have in the car.
10:30 – We head home from Meals-on-Wheels. It was another fun morning – we really enjoy going, especially the weeks we both go. Our team of 6 volunteers makes bagged lunches and then a hot meal for 64 folks. Today, the bagged lunch had a milk, applesauce, roast beef and cheese sandwich, chips, apple, cookies, bread and butter, and a piece of pound cake. The hot meal was stuffed peppers with mashed potatoes and green beans. When we get home, I make Will a bagel thin as a pre-lunch snack and package up an apple and leftover chicken pot pie for his lunch while he catches up on emails. We made the chicken pot pie this weekend from the Salt Fat Acid Heat cookbook and it was so good and has been heating up really well. After he leaves for work, I go into my home office in the dining room and catch up on emails/phone calls before heating up a cabbage roll with ground turkey and mashed potatoes that my best friend made this weekend and gave me some leftovers. 10/10 would recommend.
12:45 – I work for the rest of the morning and then go to the NJ EZPass website because when I went to NJ in September, the EZPass I was using was no longer active and I got hit with two separate $50 fees. BOOOOOO. I’m able to get one waived, but I still have to pay $56.15. I also decide I’m a grown up and should get my own EZPass account so I sign me and Will up for one ($76, which includes two devices and $35/each in prepaid funds). I also buy a toaster because we only have a toaster oven and I burn 65% of the things I put in there. ($24.61)
1:00 – I get back to work for the afternoon. I correspond with opposing counsel, draft and revise some leasing agreements, and review leases that were taken by my field guys. The afternoon goes by quickly. I have the rest of my DDP, another large bottle of water, and a spoonful of Jeni’s Brambleberry Crisp ice cream which is the best ice cream I’ve ever had. Around three I have an apple and help my coworker put together a proposal for her promotion. She definitely deserves it!!!!!
4:30 – I finish up my workday and head upstairs for a 30-minute Beyoncé Peloton ride. It is so so fun! I take my daily bath after while watching TikToks. Afterwards, I get dressed, make our bed, and put away some laundry.
6:00 – Will gets home from work and we start on tonight’s Blue Apron – chicken caper pasta. It’s tasty but not my favorite. We watched “Eaters Guide to the World” while we ate – narrated by Maya Rudolph. It seems like a great show, and Maya’s voice is awesome. Will cleans up the kitchen while I type this out and relax.
7:00 – We listen in to a webinar for my friend’s travel agent business. It feels really pyramid schemey to me. I love that she has a side hustle, but don’t love this. Afterwards we watch The Last Man on Earth (“LME”) before going to bed around 9.
Day Two
4:00 – Welp, I’m up. Any advice on how to stay asleep? Maybe seven hours is enough sleep? It doesn’t feel like it to me. I listen to podcasts (Do No Harm and the new Dr. Death) until I get up at seven and start my work day. Will left around 5:30 after taking the trash and recycling out for the week. I have half a bagel thin and an apple for breakfast.
9:30 – I’m heading into the office soon, so I’ve been taking care of housekeeping things and making a list to ensure I do everything I need to in the office today. I’ve been going in about twice a week for two or so hours. My company is still pretty old fashioned in the sense that we use paper pay sheets and have to physically sign off on things. I don’t mind – it’s nice to get out of the house.
10:30 – I get into the office, handle some logistics, catch up with my friends and yell at my boss for not wearing a mask. He’s infuriating. After a few hours, I leave and pick up Mexican food and take it to my dad and grandma’s house for lunch ($45). My gram and I get the shrimp tacos and chips and guac and my dad gets a giant portion of beef enchiladas. After a quick lunch, I head home, stopping to pick up wine on my way ($41).
1:30 – I’m back in the home office and working the rest of the afternoon. I deal with some lease negotiations that are part of a mediation and end of year budget issues. I finish up around 4:30 and chat with my best friend on her drive home from work and then get on a quick call with my boss to discuss the mediation.
5:45 – Will is home and he snacks while we make baked chicken with pesto and mozzarella. We have it with a bag of sautéed spinach and I have leftover sweet potatoes and he has last night’s pasta. I am TIRED from waking up so early!!! We just watch LME and head to bed around nine.
Day Three
6:15 – I’m just waking up now! Yes! Will gives me a big hug before he leaves for the day. Today is technically my Friday off (we do 9/80s, so I have every other Friday off). With working from home, I haven’t really taken the Fridays off, and I have two meetings on my schedule today.
8:15 – Head down to my office, heat up some pot pie (it has veggies so does that make it okay to eat for breakfast?), and catch up on emails. I have a short call at 9 with an attorney representing landowners whose leasing agreement I would like to modify. I’m also going back and forth with our outside counsel regarding current litigation. Fridays are normally my busiest day because I really like to get to as close to inbox zero as possible to have a “fresh start” on Monday.
10:00 – I call a new-to-me hair salon to schedule an appointment and they say they can take me either after Thanksgiving or today at 10:45, so I put some makeup on and head out. The girl who does my hair looks just like Jenny Slate and it was really nice getting to know her! I get a cut and highlights and I love it! ($172 + $40 tip + $3 for parking). Also, the Hello Fresh charge for the week goes through ($77.91). It is a little higher than normal because I ordered some sandwiches for lunch to try out.
1:30 – Rush home for a conference call which goes great! For a late lunch, I heat up a piece of chicken from last night and have it with some leftover spinach and chips and guac.
2:30 – I watch the first episode of Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. Omg this season seems like it is going to be amazing. Afterwards, I head to my best friend slash neighbor’s house and we go for a 2.5 mile walk and then sit outside on her deck and catch up. It’s sad to think this may be the last time we are able to do this with the weather getting colder.
5:30 - I order Aladdin’s takeout and Will picks it up on the way home. We get a shish kebob rolled, chicken Dijon rolled, spicy cauliflower, V9 soup and hot sauce. ($35+ tip, Will pays). When he gets home, we take the leaves to the curb and buy his sister a baby shower gift ($280 for a car seat, Will pays). We watch more LME and go to bed around nine.
Day Four
7:00 – I wake up and Will has already left to take his Nana shopping. I putz around and run the dishwasher and wash the bedding. He comes home at nine and we go shopping at Whole Foods. He gets stuff to make borscht for his mom and aunt, sandwiches provisions for lunches this week, salad, and frozen food. Total is around $90, and Will pays.
11:00 – We get home and make a frozen pizza and salad for lunch and watch more LME. Around one, I do a Peloton bootcamp (Jess Sims is my best friend) and Will mows the yard for leaves. I take a bath and relax while Will preps the soup.
4:00 – We have some leftover pizza and watch the last episode of Seduced, the NXIVM documentary. Keith Raniere is such a horrible human being. At some point I buy some more silicone ice cube trays ($9.32) and I make us sandwiches with the leftover chicken/pesto/mozzarella from the other night. We head to bed early.
Day Five
7:00 – I wake up in a great mood and ready to do all the things. I drink a green juice because I’ve been eating like a literal trash panda. I load the dishwasher, clean the countertops and stove, vacuum the kitchen, and make the bed. I fold and put away a load of laundry. I do a thirty-minute Cody Rigsby intervals and upper body workout and then a 15-minute stretch video.
11:00 - I take a shower and get ready to the day I’ve been looking forward to all month – brunch at Eleven! It is a gift from my sister and brother in law for my birthday and my brother joins as well. We start with a basket of croissants, muffins, and scones with honey butter and raspberry jam – literally a meal itself. Then I get the beignets and fried chicken with Brussel sprouts Caesar salad and corn bread. I also have a ginger mule and most of Will’s cocktail. Total was around $200 plus tip for the five of us and my brother-in-law pays.
3:00 – We head back to my sister and brother-in-law’s house and watch the end of the 1:00 football games and then the Steeler game. We have some cocktails throughout the day and before we leave, they make some frozen chicken nuggets from Costco that taste just like Chic-Fila. They also bought the Taste Test of Caramels from Trader Joes – I highly recommend. Will and my sister both got 100% accuracy and I couldn’t be prouder. It was such a fun day! They recently moved back to Pittsburgh from out of state and I’m so grateful that they are close, and we can hang out regularly.
7:30 – We get home and try to watch one episode of LME and fall asleep immediately after getting into bed.
Day Six
5:45 – I wake up and lay in bed for an hour or so catching up on my phone. I head downstairs and go through my work and personal emails and finances. My 401K has increased $12,000 since I started writing this. It doesn’t make sense to me. I also see that I got $50 cash back from Buy Buy Baby, so I get a few more things from Will’s sister’s registry ($5.50 after the coupon)
9:00 – I head into the office to pick up printing (I have a small printer at home, but anything more than a couple pages, I print to the office) and get some checks requested. I grab a cup of coffee and a Pepsi for Will. Once I’m back at home, I heat up the rest of the vegetable soup from Friday and a couple pierogis that Will’s mom made. I negotiate with a landowner for an amendment and ratification, fix a couple revenue issues, pull an order from a 2018 lawsuit and ensure that we are abiding by its terms, and put a memo together for the general counsel.
1:00 – I work solidly throughout the afternoon – reviewing lease files, communicating with my field guys, conferring with my boss about some recent case law, and responding to emails. I finish around 4 and take a bath. I talk to one of my friends on her ride home from work and discuss how we feel like there’s another quarantine lock down coming. Will gets home around 5:30 and we make chicken flautas with pico for dinner.
6:30 – Will and I start brainstorming ideas for Thanksgiving dinner. It is more than likely just going to be the two of us, but we still want to make a full dinner and try out new recipes. We decide to practice a stuffing recipe this weekend to make with turkey, roasted veggies, homemade rolls and some sort of apple dessert. You know the drill – a couple episodes of LME and bed around nine.
Day Seven
4:00 – Fuck. I’m up. I stay in bed for two hours listening to podcasts and trying to fall asleep. I give up at six and watch TikToks until seven. I tell myself I have plenty of PTO, so maybe I’ll take off a couple hours this morning and take a nap. I put blackout curtains in our bedroom last night and that wasn’t helpful in staying asleep but hopefully it will allow me to take a nap.
7:30 – I head downstairs and go through my emails – there’s nothing urgent. I pick out some cookies to buy from a fundraiser at the school my brother works at ($30). I feel surprisingly good, but I think its adrenalin from all the news about PA potentially getting shutdown again on Friday.
11:30 – I eat 1.5 pierogis, a leftover flauta from last night, and an apple before heading to the grocery store. I get stuff to make lunches tomorrow night and then for us for two dinners later this week – ($54) I am starting to feel tired but make myself do a Peloton ride before an afternoon of meetings. I start a Dennis intervals and arms ride and I hate it, and after ten minutes, I check my phone and one of my bffs tells me to do Robin’s Lizzo ride. It was EXACTLY what my life needed. The trajectory of my day is completely changed, and I feel awesome. Just another reminder that I work out for my mental health first and physical health second.
1:30 – My boss decides to no call no show our weekly team meeting. 10/10 wonderful boss behavior. I have another long conference call at 2, so I eat a couple turkey lunch meat roll ups and listen in.
3:30 – Conference call over. I catch up on email and phone calls and am done at 4:30. I take a bath and talk on the phone to friend before prepping tonight’s dinner – bulgogi pork tenderloin with rice and roasted carrots.
6:00 – Dinner is truly delicious! Will and I catch up on our day, clean up the kitchen, and watch Last Man on Earth.
At the end of each day please tally up your daily expenses. Then at the end of your diary please tally up all expenses in the following categories:
Food + Drink: $247.91
Fun / Entertainment: $0
Home + Health: $33.93
Clothes + Beauty: $220.50
Transport: 132.15
Other: $0
Lastly, reflect on your diary!
This week had a couple abnormal spends with the hair cut and the EZ Pass situation. I would say that I try to keep my spending to $500/week, $2,000/month and I wasn’t too far off even with the unexpected issues. I’ll just keep things a little tighter for the next week or two. I am beyond grateful for my limited fixed monthly costs and think I’m doing a pretty good job of putting my money to good use and investing. I appreciate any and all additional advice!

  • The WWF is the source of most of the news this week, and the first major thing is the Superstars taping on June 1. Dave was in Oakland and gives a full recap of the show. They had 12,120 in attendance (around 9,000 paid) and a gate around $110,000. Dave compliments the show’s atmosphere and WWF’s commitment to putting on a show, even if their style has some drawbacks. He does say that for an arena show, 29 matches is normally way too many, but since it was a tv taping, you know what you’re getting yourself into. Everyone who complains about modern tv tapings, be glad you weren’t going to these. They managed a good pace overall and kept the entire taping under 4 hours (last year’s taping in San Francisco was nearly 5 hours and had fans booing everyone in the last hour because they just wanted to see Hogan and get their money’s worth before leaving). Anyway, if you know 1980s Dave, you know his first major complaint is always going to be about unannounced changes to the advertised card. All during their tv hype for this, they were pushing Honkytonk vs. Beefcake with Jimmy Hart banned from the building. They forgot about that last bit and Jimmy was there. Then they talked about how the next show in town, Jimmy would be banned from the building. They also advertised free t-shirts to all fans in attendance, and they didn’t come through on that. Dave thinks it’s a real swing and a miss - 12,000 fans all wearing a Randy Savage t-shirt would have been a remarkable sight and been really effective. Anyway, Dave thinks most were pretty happy with the show as a whole.
  • I’m not going to go through everything on this taping, because Dave seriously covers all 29 matches, but here are some highlights and even that’s a lot. Dave gives a Brady Boone vs. Steve Lombardi dark match 3.25 stars. WWF is now doing all announcing from their studio in Connecticut, so no live announcing in the arena or even intros for each hour of the taping, which makes it hard to tell what’s going to be on what week’s show. That said, this did help things along in terms of speed. They had Slick do an interview introducing the Big Boss Man, and because they didn’t really work to change his look, he got some chants of “Bubba, Bubba” from those who recognized him. Dave takes the time to comment on Warrior’s utter lack of conditioning, as he was winded before he could even finish his entrance and could barely beat his chest. He says it’s a real statement to call anyone a worse worker than Andre the Giant right now, but Warrior has him beat by a mile. Bossman’s tv debut match was against Louie Spicoli. He squashed Spicoli in about a minute or so, then cuffed him to the ropes and beat him with his nightstick. The Hart Foundation has reunited as a face team and kicked Jimmy Hart to the curb. Rick Rude has a lot of heat thanks to the angle with Jake Roberts, and Dave can’t remember the last time a heel was so universally hated. At most he had a dozen women cheering for him, while everyone else was against him. Don Muraco “chased” Jimmy Hart to the back in an angle clearly setting him and Greg Valentine up for a feud and potentially writing Billy Graham off as a manager, but Jimmy ran so much faster that he beat him to the back by a mile and a guy behind Dave joked that Jimmy Hart is the best athlete on the show. The Rockers re-debuted for WWF and have made it two days with the company, doubling their previous record for WWF tenure. Dave thinks Michaels and Janetty are exactly what WWF needs: a babyface tag team with a rock and roll gimmick (WWF has never done that before, while other promotions have overdone it) and they got a good reaction. Dave makes an ill-advised comparison between Beefcake being over big in the area because he’s billed from San Francisco to “taking pride in living in the AIDS capital of the world.” I think we can expect letters about that in the coming weeks. Badnews Brown is doing a thing with the raising a black gloved hand in the air and Dave thinks it would have been really over if this were 1969, but it’s about 20 years too late to really strike that iron effectively and Dave jokes that you’d think Verne Gagne came up with that one until you realize he only just learned last year that baseball broke the color barrier. Dave compliments Rude again and says he’s such a good heel that Dave doesn’t even like watching him. By hour 3, fans were catching on with the Bossman’s gimmick and it was getting some good heat. The Hart Foundation’s first face match saw them beat a face jobber team and wrestle like heels while playing to the crowd like faces. The crowd was a bit confused, but Dave thinks faces who wrestle like heels could get over well once the crowd shakes off the classical conditioning. He especially compliments Bret’s fake knee injury as the best thing on the card and best sell of a fake knee injury he’s ever seen in WWF. Fans started leaving after the 26th match on the show and by the time the DiBiase vs. Savage (with Elizabeth) match happened, there were fewer than 7,000 left (and under 4,000 left by the finish). Dave quips that they probably left after seeing what Liz was wearing. Sure, Dave.
Watch: Big Boss Man makes his WWF tv debut
  • Electronic Media Magazine wrote a pretty frank kayfabe-breaking note in their May 23 issue, and they predict Ted DiBiase as the next WWF champ. They say:
While sports prognostication is normally a risky business, the scenario of who becomes the World Wrestling Federation’s champ is scripted out months in advance. It’s based on the popularity of the wrestler, not his record, according to the results each performer inspires in WWF’s multimillion dollar merchandising sales. Based on that criteria, insiders are laying odds that the next WWF champion will be “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase. But look for Hulk Hogan to reclaim the crown in a matter of months.
  • Anyway, Dave gives his thoughts on this prediction. Dave figures Hogan’s a draw with or without the belt, so he’ll probably be paired with Bossman and Andre for the fall while Savage needs the belt right now to remain a draw. He’s reminded of New Japan 1983, where everyone assumed the boom from January to August was due to Inoki and without him things would stall out, and the same would be the case for WWF this summer without Hogan. New Japan didn’t stall and that eventually led to the split that created the original UWF. WWF doesn’t have to worry about anything like that happening, but it’s conceivable that WWF continuing fine without Hogan could reduce Hogan’s pull because the company would know they can weather through without him. So Dave thinks, given that and how far behind the NWA is, that keeping the belt on Savage for the time being (provided he still remains able to draw) is the smart move. Ultimately, when Savage loses the belt comes down to Hogan’s ego and whether Hogan feels he needs the belt and if he’ll demand it when he returns, if he’ll have patience, or if he’ll leave the company if he can’t just call his shots. If Savage does stop drawing, by all means transition to DiBiase then Hogan, but right now Savage is working as an attraction and it’s best to work in such a way where you can have two of those (Hogan and Savage) rather than only just one. It may even be better to have Savage as champion since Hogan only works weekends and tv, rather than the full schedule like Savage does.
  • WWF is also expanding their schedule again beginning on July 7. They’ll be running a fourth touring group to hit small towns they used to consider too small to be worth going to and do charity shows. Dave interprets this as WWF’s attempt to deliver a killing blow to the other promotions that are currently run pretty ragged. The charity shows, for instance, are most probably designed to be able to snipe charity deals from smaller promotions because WWF will be able to offer a more lucrative product in place of, say, a charity show run by Ron Fuller. It also opens roster spots up for WWF, which means plenty of room to hire disaffected NWA guys.
  • Finally, on to something not WWF: Chigusa Nagayo appears to be preparing to retire from All Japan Women. The promotion is planning a huge show in a baseball stadium to commemorate her retirement. Chigusa is easily the most popular and highest paid woman wrestler in the history of the business, and she’s only 23. The implications for All Japan Women are huge. They just had three other key retirements recently, including Devil Masami, Dump Matsumoto, and Yukari Omori. For big draws from their golden era of 1984-86, they only have Lioness Asuka left, and her popularity is significantly down from its 1985 peak. Surprisingly, it looks like AJW wants her gone just as much as she wants to be gone. Maybe she’s outgrown the company and become difficult to deal with, maybe the promotion doesn’t feel they need her enough that they need to submit to her demands. There’s also the fact that since she has had her peak popularity, the promotion is worried that keeping her as the main attraction will make the promotion look bad for being centered around a fading star (Dave gives examples like Dusty in the NWA, Inoki in New Japan, the original Sheik in Detroit, the Von Erichs in WCCW, Lawler in Memphis, etc.). Just as the Beauty Pair (Nancy Kumi and Jackie Sato) and Mimi Hagiwara gave way to the Crush Girls (Lioness Asuka and Chigusa Nagayo), so too must the Crush Girls give way to the next big stars, and AJW seems to want Yumiko Hotta and Mitsuko Nishiwaki to be the next major stars.
  • Chigusa leaving will be a big blow to AJW for a long while, but if they can get these new wrestlers over, they can build up again. The company and Chigusa both know that she can’t be on top forever and she has nowhere to go but down from being the top star of the women’s wrestling industry. Chigusa has numerous options available to her. She has a clothing company, can use her celebrity to do game shows, and could even gather wrestlers together and start her own promotion, as some of the speculation suggests. Dave spends a bit of time describing Japanese teen idol culture and concludes that it’s very fun to follow how it all works and how it intersects with wrestling. Anyway, this is all a bit premature and a false alarm (the part about Chigusa retiring - all the implications of what would happen upon her retirement is super interesting and important to consider). Chigusa will do a tour in the U.S. and Canada later this year and will return to AJW in the fall, before retiring for the first time in 1989 (she’ll unretire in 1993.
  • The June issue of Washington Monthly has a piece on commission regulation of pro wrestling. Mostly it kind of laughs at how wrestling is regulated currently. It’s written by the same guy who wrote the Penthouse piece on the Von Erichs that’s in development hell. That’s tentatively scheduled for the September issue now, by the way.
  • There were three shows in Oregon last weekend: Owen, Haynes, and McMahon. Haynes put on his championship tournament final and won that in front of a crowd, while Owen did a kids get in free gimmick and had Buddy Rose vs. the Assassin in a bullrope match to main event. WWF, however, drew their biggest crowd ever in Oregon on May 30, getting 7,500 people (Hogan never even cracked 5,000 in Portland).
  • Also, the advertised Hennig vs. DeBeers AWA title match in Salem Oregon on May 19 did not happen, as expected. Hennig was no longer champion and didn’t even show up, so they made a battle royal the main event. Matt Borne won. DeBeers claimed in an promo that “Verne Gagne has put economic sanctions on me.”
  • The IWGP Title is currently held up because of silliness involving Riki Choshu. The main event on May 27 was originally supposed to be Fujinami defending against Seiji Sakaguchi, but Riki Choshu complained and got inserted as challenger instead. The finish to the match, which to be clear was obviously a work due to the fact that Fujinami took his boot off, involved the ring breaking and Fujinami “spraining” his ankle. So Choshu attacks the ankle, Fujinami removes his boot and tries to fight on, but they stop the match and rule it a no contest. Choshu says that since it was an accident, he didn’t want to win the title that way, so the belt is held up until the June 24 show in Osaka.
  • Owen Hart also won the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight title on the same night. He’ll likely drop the title before the end of the tour, but he is scheduled for another tour in late August, which throws a wrench in Dave’s understanding of any plans he has vis a vis WWF.
  • Adrian Adonis is being cheered in New Japan. He was a big star here several years back and the fans still remember him. He’s definitely put on a lot of weight since those days, though, so the fans have also been pretty shocked by his physique.
  • Steve Williams is probably not going back to New Japan any time ever. He’s skipped out on too many tours and they weren’t happy about that.
  • UWF has announced their June 11 card. They’ve got Maeda vs. Takada in the main event and Kazuo Yamazaki vs. Norman Smiley. The show is already sold out (7,000 seats at a price of $28/ticket = $106,000). All Japan has a show in the same building a week earlier and tickets are selling slowly. UWF is trying to get Bob Backlund in against Maeda for their December show, but that’s conditional on getting Backlund to do the job. Good news from the future: Backlund will be on the show. We’ll get into the details and how plans change down the line.
  • Devil Masami came out of retirement for JWP’s May 28 show. JWP was going to fold on May 29, but they managed to draw 4,000 fans and are going to do occasional spot shows from here on out. Dave says those shows will be “promoted by the local mob” and that may or may not be snark, I’m honestly not sure.
  • No real news from All Japan Women beyond the Chigusa Nagayo situation. Retirement rumors are swirling, and Leilani Kai beat her in a non-title match on May 28, so it might be that they’re prepping Kai as her retirement match.
  • The lineup for the second NWA Clash of Champions has changed. Barry Windham will now be wrestling Brad Armstrong in what’s sure to be a fantastic match if it’s given time. TBS’s press release about the show gave Dusty the biggest bio (no surprise) which called him “one of the two biggest stars in professional wrestling today, along with Ric Flair.” Dave notes that Windham’s bio calls him the “frequent tag team partner of Lex Luger,” so obviously these are a touch dated. Clash shows are set for September 7 and December 7 as well.
  • [NWA] Jimmy Garvin did a great promo on the June 4 TBS show. He admitted he’s married to Precious and really heated up the rivalry with Kevin Sullivan. Dave thinks it’s no coincidence they’re doing this at the same time as Rick Rude is feuding with Jake Roberts over Jake’s wife. It’s a formula that gets over big.
  • NWA is putting a lot of hype into Luger vs. Flair at the Great American Bash, and it’s getting lots of buzz among fans. Most people Dave talks to think they might even put the title on Luger. Nothing’s certain yet, but they’re definitely doing good work in the build here.
  • [WWF] Islander Tama (Sam Fatu, aka Tonga Kid) has quit WWF. That leaves the islanders as Siva Afi and Haku, which really sucks because Tama and Haku worked really well together and Siva is… not great. Dave’s heard two stories here. One is that he was upset with his Wrestlemania paycheck and the other is that he was upset with how Sika was let go and the rest of the family put pressure on him to follow suit.
  • [WWF] At the Rochester, MN tapings on May 11, Vince apparently gave a speech about the evils of steroids. According to the speech, being on tv will make you larger than life and you won’t need steroids because you’re on tv. This all stems from an employee in some auditorium finding a needle and leftover steroids backstage after a WWF show and accidentally getting stuck by the needle and freaking out about potentially getting AIDS. Remember, kids, don’t share needles.
  • Terry Taylor is coming to the WWF to work as a babyface. I think he’s too chicken to try being a WWF heel.
  • There’s talk of WWF doing a feud between Cheryl Roberts and Raven. No, not Scott Levy. Cheryl is, of course, Jake Roberts’ wife. Raven is Rick Rude’s valet, played by his sister Nancy.
  • TV in Memphis to set up the June 6 Hennig vs. Lawler match was really hot. They had Hennig in studio making fun of a local car dealer and attacking him, then later demanding Lawler come out and when Lawler didn’t come out he destroyed the studio. Lawler only came out when Hennig threatened to beat the shit out of Lance Russell if Lawler didn’t come out by the count of 10. Of course, they kind of undercut some of the tension by having the Toyota dealer promise to refund the fans if Lawler doesn’t win on June 6.
  • WCCW’s Memorial Day card in Fort Worth drew roughly 1,500 (5,000 claimed on tv). That’s the biggest crowd they’ve had in a long time. Plans for Lawler to come work with Kerry Von Erich appear to be shelved - he’s coming in on June 17-19, but he’ll be working with Terry Taylor and Iceman King Parsons instead.
  • Makhan Singh is a heel and currently feuding with Kerry Brown in Stampede, but appears to be developing a cult following. He’s doing well on promos and he’s doing color commentary with Ed Whalen and a lot of folks feel like his work on the desk has significantly improved the show. So he’s developing a fanbase that quite likely will cheer for him. Can you believe that this guy winds up being Bastion Booger?
  • Dave gives a June 1 Continental match between Tom Prichard and Tony Anthony 4 stars. It was a 9 minute first blood match and Prichard bled first, but Danny Davis wiped the blood off him to keep the referee none the wiser.
  • In USA Wrestling, Doug Furnas almost won the Tennessee championship from Buddy Landel in a tv match, but Guerrero shenanigans kept the gold off him. Furnas won clean, but Hector Guerrero slipped a foreign object into Furnas’s trunks and told the ref, who reversed the decision promptly upon discovering the weapon. Guess we can see where Eddie got his ideas from.
Watch: Hector Guerrero lies, cheats, and steals
  • Over in Europe, Otto Wanz still reigns supreme. Scott Hall is over there right now working for him, and Wanz is defending his version of the world title against Bruiser Brody on July 9. Apparently he got Andre the Giant back in January and Andre did a job for him too. Well, it was December, and it was by countout, but yes.
Watch: Otto Wanz vs. Andre the Giant, December 1987
  • AWA is looking for a new booker. They fired Wahoo McDaniel and Ray Stevens for running their own independent show in Virginia without telling AWA about it. Just in case you thought Vince was the first promoter to not like his guys running their own shows.
  • Windy City Wrestling is holding a show on July 16 at DePaul University and they’re hoping to get Brody in to wrestle Nord the Barbarian in a cage match. Brody is already booked that weekend, though, so if he doesn’t come, it’s because he’ll be in Puerto Rico. He really should have picked Chicago that weekend.
  • There’s a really fascinating letter about the western Pennsylvania wrestling scene from the 1950s and into the 70s. They used to get tv from the International Amphithetre in Chicago featuring guys like Thesz, Gagne, Buddy Rogers, the Lisowskis, and others and the letter writer wonders if anyone still has the old film of those matches sitting on a shelf somewhere. They did, and there’s a youtube channel dedicated to all this old wrestling: The Chicago Film Archive. Anyway, by the late 50s, tv wrestling in Pittsburgh got taken over by a live studio show from Philadelphia every Saturday, but it wasn’t very good and then another promoter took over the tv there and you had guys like Waldo Von Erich, the Tolos Brothers, Ilio DePaolo, and others. Soon after, Toots Mondt (an associate of Vince McMahon Sr.) started romoting in the area and brought in the best of the NWA at the time - Argentina Rocca, Buddy Rogers, the Kangaroos, Haystacks Calhoun, Sweet Daddy Siki, and a young Bruno Sammartino. But the biggest star was the Crusher (Reggie Lisowski), who started heel and became even bigger when he turned face, and in his later years they tried turning him heel again to go against Bruno, but the feud died because his appeal was gone and turning him heel was a mistake (this is weirdly reminiscent of Steve Austin’s trajectory and the mistake of his heel turn, it feels like). When Bruno became the champ, that was shortly after WWWF broke off the NWA and the local shows started to die off as he went on tour, but the big shows still did well and there was still a surge of excitement and popularity. Big monthly shows in the local arena did well, but rarely sold out. Things went bad when Bruno dropped the title to Ivan Koloff and wrestling interest dropped significantly and it wasn’t until Bruno got the title back that things interest started rising again. It’s really remarkable how important a figure Bruno was in the western Pennsylvania scene at the time.
  • A writer asks Dave if he thinks Flair should consider jumping to WWF, and Dave responds. He says there’s a bigger chance of it happening now than at any previous point (not that he’s saying Flair will jump, just that the circumstances are most favorable to a jump right now), and that does make it an interesting question. If they wanted to, they could go all in on Flair and he’d be a big draw. But because Flair’s synonymous with the NWA, there’s a lot of ways they could sabotage that because of the egos at play and the need to show that they’ve been better than the NWA all along (see WWE and anything remotely WCW in the past 19 years). And some of the reasons they might convince themselves Flair wouldn’t get over with their audience are even valid: Flair thrives in long matches and WWF doesn’t really do those. He’s pushing 40, and that’s pretty old (ha!). So yeah, if Flair were to be the top of the card in WWF, that would feel to some like an admission that the NWA is on par with the WWF, and that won’t sit well with some of the suits with big egos. But at Flair’s age, a run with WWF to make the big bucks and work shorter matches is likely to have some appeal - he’s an old man in a young man’s game, and he’s got to know that. Well, let’s look at what Ric Flair had to say about the idea of being too old to do it and retirement, about 20 years later.
Watch: Ric Flair’s thoughts on being an old man in a young man’s game and retirement
  • Another letter asks Dave for some more information on his sources for the OWF debut and the World Class Texas Stadium show. Basically, some quibbles about attendance in the former, including asking for clarification on what Dave meant when he said the crowd had “a higher class of fan, similar to a WWF crowd.” In the case of the World Class stuff, the writer straight up disagrees on the quality of the latter and asks Dave to be more positive about WCCW for the sake of the business. Dave goes ahead and answers the challenge. He names the source for his claim on the “higher class of fan,” which he meant in terms of socioeconomic class: Mike Rodgers, who publishes the major newsletter on the region called Ring Around the Northwest. Rodgers has been following wrestling in the area enough to know what kinds of crowds different promotions draw in the area and Dave stands by Mike’s assessment. As for World Class, Dave had 21 letters from those who attended the show and all but four (and those four include this letter Dave is responding to) considered the show subpar, and Dave makes sure to clarify that he didn’t call it subpar, but that he reported fan reception as indicating it was subpar. Dave even called a contact who knows the regulars for WCCW’s shows in the area after getting this letter and asked him what people generally thought, and that contact also reported general disappointment. As to being more positive about WCCW, Dave gives credit where due (he was very positive on Michael Hayes as a booker), but the promotion is showing no signs of a turnaround. It’s loads better than it was when Fritz was still in charge, but they’re still flubbing basic business in so many ways and making terrible booking choices and Dave can’t just give them a pass for that. There’s also some stuff about WWF in here where the writer calls WWF fans idiots and claims nobody intelligent would pay to go to a WWF show, and Dave mentions that he has paid to go to WWF shows and finds them enjoyable as a social outing with friends, even if he’s not interested in their wrestling enough to go on his own. So yeah. Mostly included the stuff on this letter because it’s a peek behind the curtain of Dave’s contacts and how he gauged fan reactions back in the day.
  • Also, Percy Pringle is playing face and holding the mic for interviews on World Class tv now. Dave says his facial expressions are hilarious, and I’m demanding we get a Percy Pringle facial reactions subreddit and simp account like the Alexa Bliss one asap.

2020.11.18 06:12 Zielschmerz_ Feeling overwhelmed by remote learning

I'm feeling so overwhelmed right now because of remote learning, covid and everything. I'm doing fine in class but I can't really find the motivation to study because zoom lectures just feel so different. Even as an introvert I've started to miss going for lunch with that one or two friends in the same class. I'm in a long distance relationship and I miss the days when we could fly and visit e/o each month w/o worrying about exposing ourselves to virus during traveling, and hang out in the city to try new restaurants. I miss the normal college life where I see people's faces instead of a black screen, and where I can actually feel the atmosphere of "being in college".

I'm going back to Pittsburgh living off-campus next semester (for reasons other than to be on campus more, because I'm paranoid about covid), and I'm feeling anxious about everything, including some really small things such as how to carry boxes of heavy groceries from the package center to my room alone, whether or not it's safe enough and worth for me and my partner to fly every month to spend some time together, or if I can keep myself from collapsing from online learning since my schedule is getting busier and busier. These random thoughts make me feel so lost and unable to be productive to prepare for finals, apply to internships, etc, and I just feel constantly drowning in anxiety. I really hope covid vaccine will be available some time during the spring so that my worries related to the virus can be alleviated and I can at least look forward to a normal, in-person semester starting next fall.
