    Thursday 11/28 Lions 40, Packers 10 Over Thanksgiving, Lord Kelvin and Niels Bohr ask me what I think Kurt Cobain would be doing if he were alive today. I'm weirdly super-prepared for this question because I've spent an afternoon writing 47-Year-Ol...

    Alex Pappademas

    This year Halloween fell on a Thursday. That morning brings the first real roster controversy of the Ryan Kuhlman era. I bench Denarius Moore from the Raiders to start Marvin Jones from the Bengals. When I tell Ryan I've done this over email, he advi...

  6. I Suck at Football 2.4: White People! Stop Looking for Ghosts!

    Alex Pappademas

    I've been to Las Vegas four or five times. It's always for work, which means I always go by myself. Public service announcement: Don't do this. There's being alone, and then there's solitude, which is aloneness plus contemplation. It's useful alonene...

  7. I Suck at Football 2.3: Time-Travel Beard

    Alex Pappademas

    On Sunday, the Bengals apparently became the first team in NFL history to turn a 14-point lead into a 16-point deficit and still eke out a win, which is easily the most archetypally Bengals-ish record ever set. I'm hanging out in front of m...

    Alex Pappademas

    So I get to Ye Rustic just before ten in the morning, and down at the end of the bar there's this gray-haired guy drinking a whiskey and eating a piece of chocolate cake. You think you were ready for some football on Sunday? You were not as "ready fo...

    Erwin Schrödinger's in town, so we meet at Ye Rustic on Thursday night. The Bengals are playing the Eagles, and for some reason this historic contest of champions is being broadcast in prime time. Schrödinger and I are, respectively, the th...

    Alex Pappademas

    Our oven at home is the size of a P.O. box, so we go to the desert for Thanksgiving. I drive my wife and my daughter out. My mom flies down from San Francisco and drives in with my sister. We get a dinner reservation for Thursday at one of the fancy ...

  11. I Suck at Football, Week 10: In the Jungle! Afraid of Nobody!

    Alex Pappademas

    A few hours after the Bengals beat the Giants, I'm in the passenger seat of a blue rental car with Colorado plates, driving to Pasadena with my friend Enrico Fermi, half-listening to the Latin pop hits of yesterday and hoy on Exitos 93.9 FM. I've...

    Alex Pappademas

    I am in the desert. We are in Palm Springs, my wife and my daughter and I, in a rented house. Mostly I float in the pool like Peter Stormare in The Big Lebowski. I am a nihilist, I believe in nothing, I have access to an inner tube printed with th...
