Late edition DYM for Week Six! LETS GO!!
This afternoon FB reminded us that today is Golden Richards born day, so we went digging in the archives for a very special THIS DAY IN SPECIAL ED HISTORY.
Due to the recent leap year, October 10th has not fallen on a Sunday since the inception of Special Ed. But last year, week 5 ended on Monday 10/10 with the Bucs welcoming the Panthers to Tampa. Cam Newton was in concussion protocol leaving both the Panthers and the White Walkers looking to replacement QBs. But even a Watsonean QB performance could not have saved the WWs on this day. This was Golden Richards' highest scoring game of the year, in a season where they set the league record for most points scored.
That’s probably the most interesting thing I found, but looking for stuff that happened on This Day is always fun cause I get to do a lot of “Oh yea I remember that guy”.
Like how about this gem from 2011, JACKIE BATTLE!
And from 2012, one of my all-time favs, JAHVID BEST!
Happy New Year, GR!!!!!!
CHRIS HANSEN – DYM SCHOLAR
HUGE Shout Out to NFL RedZone! We are so glad this is a thing.
On Sunday, RedZone’s Rookie of The Day was Myles Garrett. But he was the Rookie of The Early Games, maybe. Fournette was a BEAST too, he’s a superstar in the making. Then we had a good little chuckle when Aaron Jones scored a TD on the first play after the ROTD segment aired. But for week 5 the unanimous DYM-CERTIFIED ROOKIE OF THE WEEK was Deshaun Watson, who scored 5 TDs after I went to sleep Sunday night. We woke up the next morning and Yahoo said we don’t gotta worry bout our QB no more. And I said "Good. One less thing."
WEEKLY WILL FULLER UPDATE
Another week another 2 TDs for The Full House!!
Coming into this season we thought the Texans were gonna be very bad on offense. We were avoiding that entire team in the draft and first couple weeks. But Deshaun Watson is looking for real. He is the best QB that The Full House has ever played with, and could have the play-extending mobility and cannon arm that our boy needs to realize his Superstar potential.
On June 3, 2012 Fuller committed to play at Penn State and accepted a scholarship offer. Just 8 days later the Jerry Sandusky trial began, embroiling the Penn State football program in a national scandal. Later that summer Fuller rescinded that commitment and accepted an offer to play for Notre Dame University.
He ran a 4.32 40 yard dash at the NFL Combine
THEY SAY THIS IS A BIG RICH TOWN
We finally caught up on Power, and HOLY SHIT, season 4 was a doozy. There were some Breaking-Bad-level plot twists in the last few episodes. They still managed to end with a number of plotlines on major cliffhangers, so it feels certain that there’s gonna be some even wilder shit coming in season 5. So the DYM TV REVIEWS DIVISION is proud to present:
BOLD PREDICTIONS for POWER SEASON 5!!!!!
1) Tasha is Pregnant
But THE NEW LAWYER IS THE FATHER! Ghost doesn’t suspect a thing until the lawyer demands a paternity test cause he loves Tasha now, and he just has to know. ugh. Tasha gets the test and still tries to keep it under wraps but Ghost finds the results in the mailbox or some dumb shit.
2) Tommy’s Mom is the Weak Link
Hope we’re wrong about this one: The FBI investigation of Tommy is heating back up. But this time his Mom might be forced to take the stand, and she can’t lie for shit. See, there was way too much talk about how Holly was just like Tommy’s mom, and he loved them the same kinda way... that was foreshadowing... it’s gonna be really hard to watch.
3) Ghost FOISTS Councilman Tate onto Dre
For those that don’t know, the new bad guy for this season is O-Dog from Menace II Society, but now he’s a city councilman representing Ghost’s old neighborhood in Queens. Ghost has entered into a partnership with Councilman Tate that now seems like it’s gonna be more trouble than it’s worth
Ghost wants out so he reluctantly turns to his odd-couple business partner Simon Stern for advice. Stern recognizes that Tate has foisted himself onto Ghost and helps Ghost devise a plan to re-foist Tate onto Dre.
Stern will ingratiate himself once again and impose upon Ghost yet another relationship from which he has nothing to gain. But Ghost accepts this for the time being, realizing that the devil you know is better than the devil you don’t. He’ll reckon with Stern soon enough.
The wing tour continues this week with THE HAT TAVERN.
The Hat Tavern is the bar at the Grand Summit Hotel.
Hat is one of our go-to bars, and we’ve had a lot of good food there, so we had somewhat high hopes going in. The highlight of Hat is the beer selection, which is still very good, so it’s worth stopping by but don’t get the wings.
We knew these wings were gonna be garbage as soon as we saw them. They were small and heavily breaded; a deadly combination that would be impossible to overcome with even the juiciest meat and tastiest sauce. But the sauce was just alright, I think it was just mostly Franks Red Hot. The one positive I will give them is they were consistent and cooked hard enough to be very easy to eat. But they were consistently small and heavily breaded. These were your standard room service hotel wings. Disappointing.
WING SCORE: 5.0
HAVE A GREAT WEEK EVERYBODY!!!!!!
