^From what I read, this is actually a restaurant that Brees visits regularly. He's always getting food there and he's even taken pics and signed autographs for the staff. So my question is... if you someone big and famous like that who always comes to your venue, is always super cool, and normally gives you nothing to gripe about, why would you publically call him out and create a pseudo-controversy over this? If I was Brees, I would stop going there. He obviously can't trust them to not behave like dicks.
I finally googled the details. It's a restaurant I've actually gone to a few times. Pretty good stuff! But the parking structure is all manners of annoying so I will reiterate... should be an errand for a personal assistant

Anyway the times I was there the place was not very busy, so I doubt I would tip for takeout. Last night I grabbed takeout from a place that had a lot more traffic, and the waiter that had to deal with my takeout order had a dozen other things going on as well, and was really scrambling. So I gave him 2 bucks on top of my 10 dollar order.

I guess that's the weird thing. If I had decided to tip, I couldn't bring myself to tip just $3 on a 75 dollar bill. I would feel ok not tipping, so in some ways $3 almost feels worse

Especially if you're a rich fuck like Drew Brees.

Re: NFL 2013 Off-Season Discussion

Texans 3rd string QB Case Keenum is beginning to look like he has a real future in the NFL. I know the rep that U of H QBs get in the NFL since most of them threw for billions of yards in college and then fizzled out in the NFL, but Keenum sometimes shows an ability to ad-lib on plays that even Schaub doesn't have. Not to mention he throws some pretty darn good passes.

Oh well. I'm glad pre-season is over with and the real action is soon starting. Although I do hate the fact that the Texans opening game in San Diego doesn't even start until my bedtime.

Bears release J'Marcus Webb...

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports...,5765788.story

Sheep bows at the new regime for actually getting rid of dead weight, unlike the old regime who probably would have kept him as a starter. Now about that Fendi Onobun problem...

^ Webb going is neither surprising or disappointing.

Them (probably) going with 2 QB's is a little puzzling, though I think Palmer would have been a better backup than McClown.

I'm guessing that's not in the cards unless the guy agrees to play a different position.

Re: NFL 2013 Off-Season Discussion

I don't understand his reluctance to switch to a different position. He seems very hardheaded about the switch, when there are numerous college QBs who made the switch to WR or TE or even RB in the NFL. It's clear that he is not a strong passer, but he is a very athletic guy and unless he can't catch either, he should be able to do all kinds of things in the NFL.

I think the only reason he's still hard-headed is he managed to get wins at QB, which has convinced him that he's better than he is.

Re: NFL 2013 Off-Season Discussion

One more day! One more day!

Sorry, I let my excitement get the best of me.

Did anyone else buy the special edition of Madden 25 just to get access to NFL Sunday Ticket? I have zero intention of playing the game but NFL Sunday Ticket for the entire regular season for $100 is a steal. I'm looking forward to watching quite a few out of market games that I would otherwise be unable to watch this year (mostly Skins and 49ers, with some Jets games thrown in for the lulz).

No, but I've had the NFL Sunday Ticket for years.

It's my gift to myself, and keeps me (relatively) happy.

I'm planning on buying it, using the Sunday Ticket membership and flipping the game on eBay for $25 to lessen the cost even more.

Bought Madden only for Sunday Ticket. I did try playing it. I might do the $10 upgrade to the XB1 version, just because well.. new system... not many games... maybe better graphics will do the game some good? I don't know.

Are you ready for some football? Put a fork in the offseason, it's done, just like this thread.
