Have a good weekend

That's going to wrap things up for me today as I head into one of my favorite weekends of the year. I'll put up a mailbag tomorrow morning to answer some of your questions, but unless some major news breaks I plan to do little else for the next three days besides eat, drink, relax and char the flesh of dead animals over an open flame.

Very much enjoyed our week together, of course, and I look forward to the next one. Hopefully our discussions this week have given you plenty of fodder for the picnic tables. If just one person gets into a two-headed argument with his uncle about whether the Eagles' wide receivers are better than the Giants' wide receivers, I'll call this whole endeavor a success.

Seriously, I hope you all have a happy holiday weekend. I hope you stay safe, of course. And most importantly, I hope that, like me, you'll take at least a little time to remember the men and women who gave their lives so that you and I could sit here all day and argue about sports. That's what it's all about.
