I, Northeast Philly Mike, in all embarrassment, do hereby certify in front of all, that I was wrrrrr about the contract that Sam Bradford would get this year as a Free Agent. My auditors have completed their review and did find that contrary to many published reports, he did in fact sign a contract for two year and 35M, a 17.5M average and not the 18M I wagered on, nor previously erroneously reported.

I do therefore concede, in all embarrassment, that I do owe one Reality Fan, aka RF, wings and beers as payoff for loss of bet. It was good to see him swirm those last days when he was so sure it would be less than $15M, and I was surprised that a two year deal could come so close, but in the end, they don't round up 17.5 to 18 and I do in fact owe him wings and beer.

This is America in the 2000's and others have overcome greater embarrassments than this and I hope some day to be able to ascend to such heights.

RF, you ran a clean campaign, with less smugness than usual, and I look forward to paying off my debt in the near future.

First I would like to thank God, my family who supported me throughout the process....my agent.....my dogs who were there for me when thinks got tense.....the woman 2 houses down who took time out of her busy schedule to....oh wait...this is a family site.....

There were times when it was nip and tuck...I was very surprised at the dollar amounts but they paid a premium for the short duration. I will concede that the market has played out very strangely. I didi not expect Houston to grab Osweiler and I did not expect the Jets to low ball Fitzpatrick. I did expect Daniels here and I am not surprised by the talk about him starting. I am surprised that so much credence has been given to that....and the money he was given....he is an expensive coach.

That said I am looking forward to a very fun and expensive wings and beer outing.....I will check to see if Vetri, The Capital Grill or Barclay Prime have wings..... devil03.gif

I was thinking Pizza Hut wings with a six pack of Natural Light !!

I was checking out possible half way points between NE Phila and Bethlehem and I think I may be able to twist Z's arm for a trip out for some beers and he comes from the Yardley area, so it looks like somewhere near Doylestown/ Furlong area would be somewhere close to a midpoint for an outing. As far as timing, let me get past tax date (4/18) and maybe we can do something shortly after then, does that seem OK?

Look forward to it!

Seems like Fitz is having a tough time landing a deal to his liking.


Do you think he'll get more than $14M per?

You got the Jets and Broncos interested at a price, but not his price.

I will check with my people for suitable sites that meet the beer snobbery requirements of Z and I !!

When I saw Quakertown, I thought you were going Bubba'a Pot Belly Stove on me!!

I missed that too!!

Looks pretty good.

Have you been there before?

I have a few more on the radar screen up in that area. I got some friends who frequent bars up that way.
