  1. Super Bowl 51 Live Blog!

    Last game of the season and I am glad it's almost kickoff.

    Let's start with inactives for both teams.

    The Falcons are Nick Williams, Teron Ward, Blidi Wreh-Wilson, Dashon Goldson, Josh Keyes, Wes Scweitzer, and DJ Tialavea.

  5. This has nothing to do with football.

    A friend I hold dear has been gravely ill for his entire life, and acutely so for the past three weeks. This afternoon he was taken off a ventilator. There is no expectation of recovery.

    He is 32. The bulk of his medical difficulties have been present since he started out, but he wore himself down producing a play this summer.
