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:
New England Patriots (11-5)
After dropping an easy pass and blowing it in the Super Bowl, Tom Brady went home and had a nice, long cry. The next morning, he did a three-hour skincare regime straight out of American Psycho, walked 14 miles to the Patriots practice facility, and started running drills alone in the dark. He has been there since February. A deep blackness has consumed his heart. He's forgotten the faces of his wife and children. He will play until his muscles atrophy and he's left screaming in agony on the field. Then, he will play some more. So uh, yeah, the Patriots are going to be good again.

The former mayor of New York City has officially lit the last of his credibility on fire.
Last week the New York Post published a story about "evidence" of corruption on a hard drive allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden.
Son of the Democratic candidate for president, Joe Biden, Hunter Biden has not been secretive about his past, speaking openly about his struggle with drug addiction and acknowledging that his controversial role on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma—during the Obama-Biden administration—was most likely a result of who his father is.
The bassist and producer has died at 40.
Chet "JR" White, the former bassist and producer of the indie pop band Girls, died Sunday at 40 years old.
"I hope you feel nothing but peace now my brother," White's Girls bandmate, Christopher Owens, wrote in a tweet last night. "I love you, and thank you for believing in me, and for what you brought to the table. Always and Forever, and I'll always be proud of you."
