DVR Alert: Longmire

One of the better shows on TV returns for Season 3 on A&E. I'm sure a few of my readers who aren't familiar with Longmire will be pleased to find it's family friendly. They may push the edge of the FF envelope from time to time but no more than any other network drama. It's all in good taste and integral to the story. This is a well written and well cast drama. The level of quality will surprise you.

The Sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyoming returns to A&E Monday night at 8.

GIF of The Day

I like this guy's moxy. There are so many ways this could have been a huge fail.
But considering I've cliff dived into an abandoned rock quarry off the tail gate of a pickup 
I've got no room to talk.

So what did NFL teams really think about JFF?

Not much according to BroBible.

On his family:
  • From the vibe of online articles, father seems a little too involved and overstepping his boundaries.
  • Vibe on this guy keeps getting worse. Support staff members are sick of him and ready for him to go. Described as a cocky, me-guy.
  • Loves football, FBI is high as well. Everything has been pretty well-documented in online articles about the kid, but sources say he’s a spoiled brat (grandfather gives him allowance, father bought him luxury car).
  • Comes from ‘outlaw bloodlines’, mom moved the family to Kerrville to get away from father’s wild family. Father’s family is said to be very shady people, always into something, they are the root of Johnny’s personality.
On his psyche:
  • Couple of TXTC sources say can’t yell/scream at him or he shuts down; has walked away from Kingsbury in the past.
On his work ethic:
  • Doesn’t study the game, said to know about 60% of the offense in ’12, never watches film; one source said only time he watched film during ’12 was before ALUN.
  • Knows how to scheme the system, arrogant and full of himself, but he’s not smug to coaches. Has been like this since Day 1, has never gone to class, goes to beat of own drum, but has ultimate confidence.
On how his teammates view him:
  • Teammates don’t dislike him, but there’s some resentment, more so in the offseason when he isn’t coming to workouts and they are busting their butt.

I can't tell you how many times I've seen something just like this happen. I don't miss trucking one bit because everyone always assumed I was this guy. Nothing like being treated like the lowest common denominator.

The sad thing is he could have cleared that bridge. The truck is 13' 6".  Most states give you 1 foot for snow accumulation, so the bridge was actually 14' not 13'. He had 6 inches to spare. I'd have at least eased up to it and see if it cleared. If it wouldn't then back out (trust me cars will get out of the way), don't try a u-turn.
