Who doesn’t love the first snowfall of the year?

Good morning, folks! Welcome to the Water Cooler Sports Black, Blue, and Ornery, your source for NFC North News on this Friday, October 25th, 2013.

Up here in the great white North (Minnesota), we are slowly bracing for our first snowfall. Honestly, I can’t wait, as I think the first snowfall of the year is awesome. Now the snowfall in April can get to be a little old, but we have a ways to go before we worry about that!

Quote of the day:

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.

–Albert Einstein

Pop star Katy Petty turns 29 today.

Pop star Katy Perry turns 29 today.

And on this day in history:

  • 1964 – The Rolling Stones made their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.
  • 1983 - U.S. troops and soldiers from six Caribbean nations invaded Grenada to restore order and provide protection to U.S. citizens after a recent coup within Grenada’s Communist (pro-Cuban) government.
  • 2001 – It was announced that scientists had unearthed the remains of an ancient crocodile which lived 110 million years ago. The animal, found in Gadoufaoua, Niger, grew as long as 40 feet and weighed as much as eight metric tons.

We also have some great birthdays to celebrate today!

  • Katy Perry (29) - She gained fame in 2008 after releasing her juicy hit, “I Kissed a Girl,” and was voted Woman of the Year by Billboard in 2012.
  • Craig Robinson (42) - Played Darryl Philbin on the television show The Office.
  • Chad Smith (52) - Drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Now she's playing "Hot White Cum."

Give it to me, don't give it away
Don't think about what the others say
My skin's getting clear, my hair's so bright
All you do is fuck me every day and night

You're my secret beauty routine
Na na na na, what my body has seen
I am lookin' good and I'm feelin' nice
Baby, you're the best magazine advice

[Chorus:]
Gimme your hot white come [Repeat: x4]

I'm gonna pull you back down between the sheets
Everything is fresher when the day is sweet
In the morning light when you're already on the phone

Face it, one of these days
Without you I'm just another Dorian Gray
It's the fountain of youth, it's the meaning of life
So hot, so sweet, so whet my appetite

[Chorus]

Face it, one of these days
Without you I'm just another Dorian Gray
It's the fountain of youth, it's the meaning of life
Baby, you're the best magazine advice

[Chorus: x2]

Your hot white come

 Oh baby know what you're like?
You're like my favorite underwear
It just feels right, you know it
Oh, baby know how you feel?
You feel like my favorite underwear
And I'm slipping you on again tonight!

The song my wife is listening to at the moment.

@Julio Jones is on IR, contract year $ Matthis, Justin Houston, and Mario Williams all at 10+ sacks already.  Any one of those who ends up near 20 sacks seems likely to get it.

Not the one non-terrible player on a terrible defense.
