Happy Humpday everyone.
It's a beautiful Winter Day. Look outside and see the glistening chill of Christmas reflecting off the St. Louis grass. Smell it. And then see the asshole emptying out his chemical toilet into Clark's sewer.
In rookie cornerback news, Janoris Jenkins is YOUR defensive player of the week in the NFC. And deservedly so.
Not bad for a guy who was suspended by his own coach three weeks ago.
If we could get that again this Sunday, that'd be great. The two touchdowns that is, not the suspension.
JANORIS JENKINS AND HOOT FLANAGAN: TWO PEAS IN A POD
If you missed the recap of things we learned and watched in Week 12, you probably didn't know that Janoris Jenkins became the first rookie in 52 years to score two touchdowns on interception returns.
Back in Dec. 1960, a man named Bobby Franklin accomplished the feat as a rookie.
Before Franklin, Dan Sandifer did it on Halloween 1948 (FDR and Marilyn Monroe were the two most popular Halloween costumes in 1948 per Grey's Sports Almanac). But the first ever? Hoot Flanagan in Nov. 1925.
Janoris looks a lot like Hoot, actually. But not so much Sandifer or Franklin.
They're blood relatives those two, Hoot and Janoris are.
ANDY REID ON WHEEL OF MISFORTUNE
I produced the image below for my pigskin primates at Cold Hard Football Facts. And I wanted to share here too because I know Andy Reid will see it since he's an avid reader of all things insideSTL.
IN OTHER NEWS
The Seahawks cornerback tandem of Browner & Sherman take adderall. This is news because the NFL says no-no. When the NFL invades my holiday parties, we're going to have a serious fight.
On the 49ers front, Jim Harbaugh isn't saying who his quarterback will be this Sunday. This is Jim's way of compensating for something. Something small.
Now go win that PowerBall Ticket!
