Time for Some Half-Baked Opinions
The pointless and wholly un-entertaining cash grab known as the NFL preseason is finally coming to a close.
On another note, my editor just told me that we have a cool new slideshow feature on our website, so I'm going to use it. Here's my prediction for every NFL team this year:
Detroit Lions (7-9)
Matt Stafford has one of the highest salaries in the NFL, but unless he can use his piles of cash to build a standout player at literally any position, I don't see the Lions doing anything this year. Awash a sea of mediocrity, Stafford seems doomed to drown in Detroit.

There's an entire genre of YouTube videos that consists of nothing but news bloopers, and they're equal parts hilarious and panic-inducing.
"Right after the break, we're going to interview Erik Weihenmayer, who climbed the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, but he's gay—I mean, he's gay, excuse me, he's blind."
Back in the early 2000's a young news anchor in New Mexico had a slip of the tongue on live TV that has enterred the annals of news blooper history.

Cynthia Izaguirre had just gotten done reporting on a separate story discussing activism for gay rights, and was setting up a segment with the first blind man to climb Mount Everest, and her thoughts got twisted on the way to her mouth, resulting in a 14-second clip that would live on in infamy.
