It hasn't been the busiest of offseasons, what with this whole lockout thing. Now, maybe, just maybe, the tiniest flicker of hope for a real NFL offseason, complete with free agents, draft pick signings, cuts and preseason games all smashed into about a month and a half. Might the NFL realize just how compressed business can be when not in season?
Alright, I didn't come here to pontificate. I came here to roll out a quick and easy post, something to keep content fresh (nothing kills a web site, not to mention community, faster than going dark for days on end) and give fans something to do...with a special emphasis on the St. Louis Rams.
Enter, the caption contest. For some reason, I have a proclivity for caption contests featuring coaches talking...or players that look like they're taking a dump.
The photo above features none other than St. Louis Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo in his home state of Massachusetts, Mass-holes. The snapshot comes right before the Rams' triumph over the Patriots last year in the preseason, a game that put Sam Bradford on the map.
Of course you recall that Spagnuolo was a key part of the New York Giants team that upended the Patriots' pre-ordained Super Bowl title. Home states, old rivalries...that's plenty of context for a caption contest. Have at it.
