SPRING 2020 – SEASON OF CHANGE

With the NFL season about to kick off, after college football wet our beaks on Thursday, its an opportune time to think about how the two will converge next spring. Next off season could see a wave of change at the quarterback position throughout the leage. A change so sweeping that the league has never seen it before. Consider for a moment all the starting quarterbacks who have contracts set to expire at the end of the league year: Phillip Rivers Dak Prescott Jacoby Brissett Tom Brady Drew Brees Jameis Winston Marcus Mariota A few more quarterbacks could be cut…

PUTTING THE FUN IN FUNDRAISING

I’m just a duck Typing for a reader Asking them for money This year FREEDOM RIDE 2019 has been changed up a little. When last reviewed in the PSA #7 – HEROES AMONG US article in July we thought the ride would be kicking off just before noon on September 10th. But its been adjusted to fit the theme for the charity that we’ll be riding for, the Ray Pfiefer Foundation. Some info on the ride: Start time: 5:46a Wed September 11th (the time the first tower was hit) End time: 11:29a Wed Sept 11th (343 minutes later) Location: EOS Fitness…
