(You're welcome). 3) R.I.P., George Jones, the country-music legend, gone at 81. 4) Pictured right, what Mike Wallace looks like in Dolphins' new unis. 5) In The Previous Blogpost (ITPB): Heat-Bucks Game 2, Chris Bosh animation, my Mock Draft, Dolphins draft poll. 5b) Join us on Twitter @agregcote.

FRIDAY DOLPHINS DRAFT UPDATES: BESS, TAYLOR, THOMAS, DAVIS: Dolphins trade WR Davone Bess to Cleveland for mid-round Saturday pick. Not positive on this deal. Bess was a reliable 50-catch guy. ..... Miami selects Boise State cornerback Jamar Taylor in second round, 54th overall. Gut feeling: Strong pick. Position of great need. Very fast (4.39 40) and fourth-rated CB by draftnike Mel Kiper. ..... Dolphins pick Tennessee OT/OG Dallas Thomas in third round (77th overall). Durable; 37 straight starts to end college career; Miami sees him at tackle ..... Miami trades out of 82nd overall pick but then trades into 93rd pick, selects Utah State CB Will Davis. Second corner of night reflects need at position. ..... Day 2 action leaves Miami with five Day 3 picks: 4-104, 4-106, 5-139, 5-166 and 7-250. ..... Biggest Day 2 question is that Miami failed to complete the trade for Kansas City OT Branden Albert.

THRILLING THURSDAY: MIAMI'S BIG 4 PRO TEAMS ALL TOOK STAGE: This was rare. Last night, all intersecting, we had Dolphins in first round of NFL Draft, Heat-Bucks Game 3 in Milwaukee, Marlins back home to face Cubs, and Panthers in their season home finale. Those are two big events and two sad ones. Marlins are pretty awful (and lost again, 4-3) and Panthers (who lost 4-0) are wrapping up a really disappointing hockey season. So let's accentuate the positive as our two biggest teams took the national stage:

DOLPHINS' FIRST-ROUND: A BIG TRADE-UP FOR DE DION JORDAN: Miami gives up its 12th overall pick and its higher of two second-round picks to trade up to third overall and select Oregon pass rusher Dion 1aa1djordanJordan (pictured). Not expected. A referendum on GM Jeff Ireland's judgment as much as on Jordan. Click on Trusting Ireland for my column on the selection. Now give us your reaction in new poll just below. Original post: up, trade down or stay with the 12th overall pick? We'll find that out before we learn the identity of Miami's newest sports star. Click on '13 1aa1draftnfl13 1aa1dolhelnewMOCK for my 22nd annual Mock Draft. You know by now I think Miami will and should select Notre Dame tight end Tyler Eifert. A wild-card on this draft day is the negotiation to acquire Chiefs tackle Branden Albert by trade for a second-round pick. Talks have been ended until after each team's 1R pick tonight. That's a risk for each side. KC could lose its trade partner if Miami chose an O-lineman, a decision the Dolphins now must consider. Cornerback, offensive tackle and a pass rusher are other primary needs, but with 11 picks as of now including five in the first three rounds Miami will have a chance to address every need. Drafting Eifert would give the Dolphins (they would hope) what the Patriots have in Rob Gronkowski, and continue the emphasis of surrounding QB Ryan Tannehill with weapons.

My mock did not rock: I am not pleased. Overall I correctly picked 24 of the 32 first-round selections, but only three to the exact teams. That's slightly below average on the overall and significantly so on the exactos. Tough year; muddled draft. Florida State QB EJ Manuel going 1R surprised me and just about every other mocker. My biggest miss was Notre Dame LB Manti Te'o, who was not selected Thursday night after I'd had him going 20th.

Poll result: Eifert would be popular pick with fans: We asked and 62.1 percent said they'd like to see Miami draft Notre Dame TE Tyler Eifert, vs. only 8.7% for Florida State CB Xavier Rhodes and 5.9% for Alabama OT D.J. Fluker. Another 23.3% voted "somebody else."

1aa1bucksheatG3: HEAT 104, BUCKS 91: CAN YOU SAY 'SWEEP'?: Ray Allen's 23 points off the bench led Miami and LeBron James added 22 but the story of the night (despite the win ) might have been Dwyane Wade scoring only 4 points on 1-for-12 shooting despite big minutes. He had 11 assists and five steals, yes. But his night offensively called into further question the health of his right knee moving forward. Original post: Heat made it look pretty easy in going up 2-0 in Miami. Milwaukee must hold serve tonight at 1aa1g3home for any realistic (read: remote) chance of getting back in this series. Doubt it will happen. Thinks Bucks could pinch Game 4 Thursday, but see Heat with a win tonight. It'll be interesting to see if Dwyane Wade's balky right knee allows him to put on a show for the Milwaukee crowd, his former hometown fans from his Marquette days, because you know he'll want to. (Meantime, Brandon Jennings still thinks Bucks will beat Heat in six games; clear here to hear what "delusional" sounds like).

SHANE LARKIN TURNING PRO ALL BUT OFFICIAL: His announcement news conference is set for 6 p.m. Sunday, but chances are it will be anticlimactic -- stating the obvious. It is widely assumed he will forego a return to UM and instead enter the NBA Draft, with ESPN reporting it's a done deal. That would leave Jim Larranaga with zero returning starters from his Sweet 16 team. 

1aa1bbsadUPDATED: MARLINS "SAD-O-METER": We have introduced a feature we'll update in the blog throughout the season as long as the Marlins' winning percentage is under .300. The New York Mets' 1962 record of 40-120 (.250) is widely regarded as the nadir in its class -- the single worst season in modern MLB history. Now, your Marlins are threatening that ignominy. Marlins Sad-O-Meter: Current record, 5-17 (.227). Updated season projection, 36.8 wins, 125.2 losses.

They're kidding, right? No!?: The Marlins just sent out the following Tweet. It made me laugh out loud:

BB, bottom line is that I would not take the risk of drafting such a diminutive player. The odds are that he would not be very durable. Could be wrong, but physics is physics and odds are odds.

Which reminds me of my first semester physics class, and our very descriptive professor, who placed the following problem. A duck is sitting on a 4'-6" post and you shoot it with your gun (velocity and mass of the projectile given), assuming the bullet somehow is contained within the duck, how far away from the post will the duck land.

I get visuals of Tavon Austin getting hit by a Howitzer.

I can already see Nancy Pelosi scrambling to make sure that that physics problem is scrubbed from every text book in America.

Greg,

Nice choice of image for your Marlins' "SAD-O-METER."

Wow OC Eifert coming in at 62 percent what do you make of that?

He is going to be a difference maker, little doubt. That's why he shouldn't go to one of our Divisional foes.

The Helmet Greg shows has an orange stripe down the middle the leaked uni's did not show that as far as I can tell much better.

Would you take him at # 12?

I'll bet you a cookie that the Jets will draft either Eifert, Mingo, or both. If the team stays at #12 I would be tempted to take whichever one of the two is still on the board, just to spite them...Not to mention that I would be completely satisfied with that selection.

My bet is the Jets trade down with one of those two # 1 picks it's the smart play.

Don't think so. #9 and #13 gets you two great starters. What would be the point?

Jets stink and are rebuilding they need all of the picks they can get.

Today is the NFL Draft!!!! Why F/U a perfectly good day?????

BB, Any NFL draft is a successful one for a team if they manage to select and field two future HOF'ers. A #9 and #13 gives you a great shot at that.

Ok here's hoping they pick Vernon Gholstons brother or long lost twin with the picks.

Patriots are rumored to be trading Ryan Mallet they want at least a 2nd for him Cleveland among other teams are interested.

That doesn't bode well for Mallet, if NE is giving up on him, and knowing TB ain't getting any younger.

Brady is signed through 2017 don't think Mallet's hanging around until then it makes some sense to trade him now if you can get good value.

Badger, Badger, Badger. If we don't take this guy I might be joining Shadow in rooting for the Bengals this year. For sure if we don't take that Putney Swope white kid from Texas A&M.

Wassup, OC! Fell free to blow me.

They are reported to have interest in Swope.

Looks like Bess is a goner the end of an era.

It seems that Philbin is helping turn this roster completely over (for the better I think).

The problem with that "Mullet" kid is that he's a redneck from Arkansas. The kid is rumored to have blown a 2 on the Wonderlic. Billy Boy Bellicheck thought that it was because the kid wasn't serious when he took the test but turns out that a 2 was the highest he could score in ten tries once he got to NE. I think he's related to Kazaam on his father's side of the family.

I tell you what Woody, I'll trade you my original Ben Hogan 3w for your new Callaway 3w, and I'll even throw in a honey colored head cover to boot.

WTF are you talking about. Oye OC, I think those freeway loops in Austin are affecting your brain.

Did you get your gold leaf wedding invitation from the Pave?

Who's Pave?

I'm starting to like the new Boeing 747 looking Dolphins emblem on the helmet.

so what are the Dolphins going to do?

hopefully they can trade down, if they stay put I hope they think O Line first (Cooper/warmack), pass rusher second (Ansah/Mingo) DT third (Lotulelei/richardson) and CB/TE last (Hayden/Eifert)

we need to shore up the O Line ( both at guard and Tackle ) and you could never have enough pass rushers.

Plenty of CB's left in the second/third rounds same with the TE's, I know eifert is a talent but if I have a stud pass rusher @ 12th that's where I'll go.

My prediction?...Lotulelei.

The PBP is reporting why the Albert trade is not done, the Dolphins don't think Albert is worth giving up a second, good sound thinking, I'll give up a third but not a second, I hope Ireland hold's to his guns, KC will eventually give in, their other choice is to pay him 9.8 mil for one year and then losing for nothing, MIami has leverage.

That's why KC is hedging their 1st pick from Joeckel to Fisher. Fisher can play RT, whereas Joeckel is purely a LT. Albert will not play on the right side.

so does anybody knows when Tom Servo is going to show up today?...Just curious.

The holdup is KC wants # 42 and we want to give them # 54 they will take the deal soon I think.

Oye OC,

The Lakers are more than done amigo, more like totally "finito"...same as the Celtics, sorry guys (OC/BB).

so what should I watch today?..the Heat? or the draft?

No BB, the holdup is KC wants a two and Miami thinks that's too high a price to pay, they more likely want to pay a three.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/04/25/report-dolphins-dont-think-alberts-worth-a-second-rounder/

We need to end up with either Eifert or Ertz, a top 4 corner, a top 7 sack guy, a RB guy like Franklin, a couple of fat guys, a LB and S for depth, and a new kicker. Yes, kicker, Dustin Hopkins. Carpenter is too inconsistent and the position gives you POINTS. Take instant offense with the #82 pick and dump Carpenter.

FZB, I've logged enough blog comments on what I think of the Lakers. And all other teams, as well. I've closed the books on the NBA until Jim Buss gets hit by a bus, so no need to prod me.

Sorry OC, didn't mean to hurt your feelings...hehehe

http://cdn.memegenerator.net/instances/400x/25375793.jpg

this is a pre-empty strike just in case Tom Servo shows up.

Your life is soaked in the colours of your consciousness.

Every experience you’ve ever had – including the one you’re having right now – ricochets through the expanses of your perception where it is shaped and moulded to fit snugly into your personal version of reality.

Oye socio, not you.

Badger, Badger, Badger!

Putney Swope, Putney Swope, Putney Swope!

Obama rated 5th best US President EVER…

Of the total of 44 US Presidents: Obama rated 5th best president ever. A recent Democratic publicity release stated, "After more than 5 years, B. H. Obama has been rated the 5th best president ever."

The details according to White House Publicists:
* Jefferson, Lincoln, Reagan and 7 others tied for first,
* 15 presidents tied for second,
* 17 more presidents tied for third,
* Jimmy Carter was alone in 4th, and
* Barack Hussein Obama is rated fifth!

All's I know is that if the Dolphins stay in at #12, they better come up with one of these guys. It would be a dumb strategy to reach for lesser talent, as there are plenty of holes any of these highest rated players can fit into.

Joeckel, Luke OT 6'6" 306 Texas A&M 95.3

Floyd, Sharrif DT 6'3" 297 Florida 94.2

Fisher, Eric OT 6'7" 306 Central Michigan 94.0

Warmack, Chance OG 6'2" 317 Alabama 93.9

Ansah, Ziggy DE 6'5" 271 BYU 93.8

Jordan, Dion DE 6'6" 248 Oregon 93.5

Milliner, Dee CB 6'0" 201 Alabama 93.2

Johnson, Lane OT 6'6" 303 Oklahoma 92.9

Mingo, Barkevious DE 6'4" 241 LSU 92.8

Lotulelei, Star DT 6'2" 311 Utah 92.0

All's I know is that if the Dolphins stay in at #12, they better come up with one of these guys. It would be a dumb strategy to reach for lesser talent, as there are plenty of holes any of these 10 highest rated players can fit into.

OT Joeckel, DT Sharrif Floyd, OT Eric Fisher, OG Chance Warmack, DE Ziggy Ansah, DE Dion Jordan, CB Dee Milliner, OT Lane Johnson, DE Barkevious Mingo, or DT Star Lotulelei.

These are the top 10 players, and with some team reaching to get Geno Smith, Tavon Austin or any other player rated lower, jumping in, it most certainly guarantees that one of those players will be available.

I don't want to see someone coming off the second page as the #12 pick.

Oye, FZ. I believe the term is pre-emptive strike. Tremendo Cubiche!

El tipo tiro un tremendo spanglish type out there. Pero you have to excuse him as he was out of his element trying to keep up with some ridiculous nonsense about aliens and metaphysics and astrology, and what have you like you and Duke sometimes devolve into.

Oye brother, stick to black beans and rice, platanitos maduros, y lechon azado. You know, The Basics.

si meng, I coundn't remember the correct spelling and my facking computer doesn't have that spelling button chit to correct my mistakes hehe.

see what I mean?...couldn't.

I have to do an upgrade and pronto !!!

Hey, where in the fack is the Dukes-Ter?..I hope hes ok.

Oye, I do OK with an elementary education, you know meng, when I finally finish HS I wanna be like Kazaam, he's my role model.

Hopefully I will have a trust fund by then too.

and speaking of Kazaam, did someone pissed him off, he hasn't been around lately, I kind of miss him.


OC,

Relax, we're drafting Lotulelei...

My NFL amigo is ignoring me today, I'm kind of pissed off about it if you ask me.


Say it aint so FZB...

Drafting a LT helped us so much last time..
Let me get my insults ready for your son.

reading online and watching the NFL network the last couple of days seems like every team out there want's to trade back...too funny.

si Anti,

Lotulelei amigo...the Samoan devil, he's probably one of your minions..total beast.

maybe we should draft Manti and his imaginary girl friend.

The dolphins should share some of it's picks with the Marlins.

They need all the help they can get. Sad O Meter.

Lotulelei is top 10 for sure, but the interior defense of the team is in pretty good shape given Soliai and Starks. Star would probably be the last guy of interest, but make no mistake, if he's the only guy left out of those to 10, I pick him.

I shall crucity your son if he picks a O-Lineman..
(And no FZ,That does not mean your God)

we can always trade Starks...

I'm kind of dissapointed that my son hasn't done the deal I suggested to him, Starks and Bess for Albert.

If you guys haven't noticed Philbin is slowly getting rid of the players that don't fit his system, this year it will be Starks, Bess,Jerry and Incognito..maybe even Thomas but he may get one more year.

FZB, It kind of sounds like "Rebuilding"..

We'll know in about six hours.

yep, it is rebuilding...the team has holes but we are not that far away..

I hope they can find a trade partner and trade down.

it occures to me the've been rebuilding for 15 years..
Maybe they sould ask for goverment assitance/Make it a reclamation project or something..
Iam sure Obama would throw them some cash..

lol...Yes, I agree..Obi to the rescue !!!

did you guys get the chance to see 30 for 30 Elway to Marino yet?

must see television.

Woodcock the helmut is not quite as bad given Dolphin head isn't arched up in the air like he's being wagon trained by the rest of the NFL and aristocratic society..

FIRELAND is going to F this up. Big time.

Hey Lou how 'bout a pair of "Oops I Crapped My Pants" and a Fresca?

OK boys, here is Mr. Woodcock's every man guide to the NFL draft.

If you want to have a successful draft do this.

Draft the weed guys, the white wide receivers, and the Samoans.

Don't take any quarterbacks from SC.

You can take a white left tackle but never draft a white right tackle.

Never draft a black center.

95% of the time do not draft a Samoan center.

You can have white, black, or Samoans at guard.

Never draft a white corner back.

Defensive ends, and outside linebackers should always be black. Here, sometimes an exception can be made for a Samoan.

Always try for a Samoan first at nose tackle or defensive tackle. At nose you can go for a black player if all the Samoans are taken. White guys can be used here but we prefer if they are from Utah.

Safeties are almost always black and can be Samoans unless you are running a complicated defense and then you should always look for a white guy or a black guy or Samoan that went to Stanford.

Wide receivers SHOULD ALWAYS BE BLACK. Samoans are never a choice at this position.

Slot backs or flankers should be white but they are an endangered species so again you can fill this position with a black player, preferably one who went to Stanford, Vanderbilt, or Georgia Tech. Again, never draft a Samoan for this position unless you expect that he will eat himself into a tight end position or into the line somewhere two months after he reports to camp.

Never draft a black quarterback. (This is the same as never drafting a quarterback from USC).

Running backs should almost exclusively be black. An exception here is made if you're going to use a blocking back fullback in which case you can draft a Samoan or a white guy as long as he is of Polish stock.

Only draft a tight end who was a basketball player in college.

Never, ever, draft a kicker from Latin America, or Europe, or Russia, or any other pansy ass who plays soccer. Kickers should all be born here in America and they must swear that they've never kicked a soccer ball in their lives or even watched an MLS game on TV.

Only draft a punter if his name is Ray Guy.

Under no circumstances do you ever draft a chink. Never. It's bad enough that we had to put up with that 8 foot tall freak named Ping Pong or Wing Wang, or whatever that freak's name was that played center for the Houston Rockets. Again, NEVER, EVER, EVER, DRAFT A CHINK.

And last but not least. Never, ever, ever, listen to OC when you're trying to figure out the draft.

because, unlike Woodcock, OC is not a racist.

Why am I a racist? Bro, I wrote this manual for the general managers of the NY Giants, New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens, and the Pittsburgh Steelers. And you wonder why these are the most successful football organizations in the NFL.

Like I said boys, don't ever listen to OC when it comes to the NFL draft.

"Wassup, OC!"

Mr. Woodcock,

it looks like you'll be rooting for the bengals if the honey badger gets ignored by miami in round one, which is a virtual certainty.

putney swope!!! "the truth and soul movie"!!! one of the alltimers forom the great movie season of 69-70. could watch putney over and over and over...

...and with the first pick in the 2013 draft, Mr. Woodcock selects...Enrico Palazzo, opera singer from LA...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTcR9Gzvwf8

If Miami stays at 12 and all of the big time linemen are gone it will be a corner back. Nothing worse than drafting a D back with the first pick if you're a fan. But we don't have any corners now that Davis and Smith are gone. You have to get a sure fire starter for a position of need with the first pick. After you can take a flyer on the Badger, Swote, and Marcus Lattimer types. Speaking about taking a flyer, as a riverboat gambler with nothing to lose since I have zero Dolphins chips in front of me and I have been on a cold losing streak for 20 years, I would roll the dice and pick up those three in a heartbeat. You don't get the brass ring by playing it close to the vest.

Badger, Badger, Badger.......

This just in, the Dolphins and KC have agreed to stop talking to each other about Branden Albert until after the first round is over.

Oye, even that fish, Enrico Palazzo would take the Honey Badger in the second round.

Jets lost Revis, got the 9th & 13th overall picks. Jets will get CB Milliner & may trade the other #1 away for more picks. Jets will double down on CB's & LB's this draft.

NFL channel talking heads saying.... my fav at 12,, Dion Jordan is dropping. I like him or Eifert, Cooper, Warmack if Fins stay at 12. I don't have an issue trading away a #2 to KC for Albert,, I have an issue paying the tub $9 mil a year. IMO, I'd take Free Agent Winston & save the draft pick to double down on CB's.

Going to a BBQ where there is no cable to follow,, will catch up with my fans later...

OC, Potter,,, ain't me. Haven't been on here much lately & haven't posted any alias' in a while.

Listen to Tom, always the voice of reason & usually right. Tom's opinion is solid.

I'm hoping for a pass rusher, O line finally solved, improved secondary, upgrade at TE, possible stud at RB (Lattimore), k with one of the multiple 7's we have.

To me the draft is simple...first and second rounds you load up on the big uglies ( offensive and defensive line ) ..this is football , you have to control the line of scrimmage..

Lotulelei or Cooper with our first..
DE And Tackle with our two seconds..

TE and CB with our two thirds.

RB

LB and CB

TE, K, LB

A shaman seeks the demonic influence of the preternatural realm ; which is essentially satanism ; as such he is not concerned with the welfare of his soul which is most likely in a deplorable state as it is.
His motivation, as is the case with most new-age and occult practices, is the increase of human power for personal gain and interest ; as such the humility and faith building Christian experience of the Dark Night of the soul is irrelevant to the shaman and is probably not accessible to him.

Spoken like a true believer.

Jeez, Cote, those blue numbers in the new unis have to go. From afar they look like the unis that those losers from Detroit wear. The last team in the NFL that you want to emulate are the freaking Detroit Lions. Those guys haven't been good since Bobby Lane was their quarterback.

Oye, limpiate socio. What's with all this weird crap.

I don't have any problems with what you proposed FZ, as long as you follow the Woodcock race based chart.

Anyone care to challenge Woodcock's race based chart? I will put whatever money any one on this blog want's if they can show me a race distribution in the NFL that is not exactly as I drew it.

ahhh ohhhh, Fis trade up 2 #3

We got Dion Jordan !!!

Shit that was a great move, we only gave up a two !!! . Hell yeah !

FZB,He' coming off a sholder injury and wont be ready for pre-season...Maybe when the regular season starts;
Yeah Great pick by your son...:(

Hmm Anti he's hurt? Well Thurman Thomas had bad knee injury coming out of college. Lets hope for that kind of luck. Guy looks like a monster and Ireland plans to make him Miami's deep threat on offense as well...

Classic Dukster..

GOOD AND BAD:

i guess dion jordan is a nice player, but when they falshed to the dolphins fans at radio city a #15 new dolphin jersey was visible being worn by one of the supporters. a shame that davone bes will never suit up for a regular season game wearing his #15 in which he played so well for miami after not being drafted and making the team as a free agent. guaranteed that his replacement won't contribute as much as my favorite dolphin did during his five years catching clutch 3rd down passes.

Time to start the FIRE Ireland talk!!! Too many good players out there to lose a pick by moving up. Could have kept the extra pick and got a corner or safety

love the Jordan move, but now have to get Albert, unless Clabo, Winston, or McKinnie in play

Terrible move by the dolphins......I would of stayed at 12 and kept that 42nd pick. That's 2 impact players they would of had

Horrible pick, undersized for the NFL, a number three pick should change your franchise :(

The Dolphins screw up in the draft, once again. Meanwhile, the Heat improve to 3-0 in their best of 7 series against the Milwaukee Bucks and look to sweep the series. That's bigger news.

Also, the Dolphins new uniforms look AWFUL. They sort of look like the jerseys the Detroit Lions have. Not good.

I don't know a thing about this guy we got, but that doesn't mean diddly squat. All I know is that to be the third guy picked in the entire draft he better be the next coming of Deacon Jones or he's going to be another in a long line of stiffs taken by the Dolphins in the draft.

Freaking Bill Belicheck just gets 4 pics to trade down from a low first round. NE had only 5 pics in this draft now they got 8. Great move. No wonder they are always at the top of the league. FZ, so far your son is looking like the fish of the week.

Cock, Compairing Ireland to Belichet is akin to compairing a gnat to a human..
Sorry FZ.

F! I had 2 posts from earlier today erased.

Jordan is an excellent pick to grab at 3. Love it.

Jimbo, how the heck do you guys get posts taken down and they leave that diatribe I wrote about the draft up there? I thought that thing was going to last a second up on the blog and it's still there. Go figure. I don't know anything about this guy. I sure hope that you're right Jimbo. I gotta tell you on paper they are going to have a heck of a good d line this year. I just hope that the kid pans out. Hopefully we get some good picks tomorrow.

Tom Servo Is A Troll And This Sounds Like The Long Version Of Prometheus.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Inorganic beings are an essential part of the universe and they must be taken as what they really are awesome, monstrous. They are the means by which the universe tests us. We are energetic probes created by the universe, and it's because we are possessors of energy that has awareness that we are the means by which the universe becomes aware of itself. The inorganic beings are the implacable challengers. They cannot be taken as anything else. If we succeed in doing that, the universe allows us to continue. You have arrived, by your effort alone, to the topic of topics. I have been beating around the bush all this time, insinuating to you that something is holding us prisoner. Indeed we are held prisoner! . There is an explanation which is the simplest explanation in the world. They took over because we are food for them, and they squeeze us mercilessly because we are their sustenance. Just as we rear chickens in chicken coops, the predators rear us in human coops. Therefore, their food is always available to them. Well, you haven't heard it all yet. Wait a bit longer and see how you feel. I'm going to subject you to a blitz. That is, I'm going to subject your mind to tremendous onslaughts, and you cannot get up and leave because you're caught. Not because I'm holding you prisoner, but because something in you will prevent you from leaving, while another part of you is going to go truthfully berserk. So brace yourself! I want to appeal to your analytical mind. Think for a moment, and tell me how you would explain the contradiction between the intelligence of man the engineer and the stupidity of his systems of beliefs, or the stupidity of his contradictory behavior. Sorcerers believe that the predators have given us our systems of beliefs, our ideas of good and evil, our social mores. They are the ones who set up our hopes and expectations and dreams of success or failure. They have given us covetousness, greed, and cowardice. It is the predators who make us complacent, routinary, and egomaniacal. In order to keep us obedient and meek and weak, the predators engaged themselves in a stupendous maneuver stupendous, of course, from the point of view of a fighting strategist. A horrendous maneuver from the point of view of those who suffer it. They gave us their mind! Do you hear me? The predators give us their mind, which becomes our mind. The predators' mind is baroque, contradictory, morose, filled with the fear of being discovered any minute now. I know that even though you have never suffered hunger you have food anxiety, which is none other than the anxiety of the predator who fears that any moment now its maneuver is going to be uncovered and food is going to be denied. Through the mind, which, after all, is their mind, the predators inject into the lives of human beings whatever is convenient for them. And they ensure, in this manner, a degree of security to act as a buffer against their fear. By playing on our self-reflection, which is the only point of awareness left to us, the predators create flares of awareness that they proceed to consume in a ruthless, predatory fashion. They give us inane problems that force those flares of awareness to rise, and in this manner they keep us alive in order for them to be fed with the energetic flare of our pseudoconcerns. There's nothing that you and I can do about it. All we can do is discipline ourselves to the point where they will not touch us. How can you ask your fellow men to go through those rigors of discipline?the predator. They called it the flyer because it leaps through the air. It is not a pretty sight. It is a big shadow, impenetrably dark, a black shadow that jumps through the air. Then, it lands flat on the ground. The seers were quite ill at ease with the idea of when it made its appearance on Earth. They reasoned that man must have been a complete being at one point, with stupendous insights, feats of awareness that are mythological legends nowadays. And then everything seems to disappear, and we have now a sedated man. What I'm saying is that what we have against us is not a simple predator. It is very smart, and organized. It follows a methodical system to render us useless. Man, the magical being that he is destined to be, is no longer magical. He's an average piece of meat. There are no more dreams for man but the dreams of an animal who is being raised to become a piece of meat: trite, conventional, imbecilic. This predator, which, of course, is an inorganic being, is not altogether invisible to us, as other inorganic beings are, I think as children we do see it and decide it's so horrific that we don't want to think about it. Children, of course, could insist on focusing on the sight, but everybody else around them dissuades them from doing so. The only alternative left for mankind is discipline. Discipline is the only deterrent. But by discipline I don't mean harsh routines. I don't mean waking up every morning at five-thirty and throwing cold water on yourself until you're blue. Discipline is the capacity to face with serenity odds that are not included in our expectations. For them, discipline is an art: the art of facing infinity without flinching, not because they are strong and tough but because they are filled with awe. The grand trick of those of ancient times was to burden the flyers' mind with discipline. They found out that if they taxed the flyers' mind with inner silence, the foreign installation would flee, giving to any one of the practitioners involved in this maneuver the total certainty of the mind's foreign origin. The foreign installation comes back, I assure you, but not as strong, and a process begins in which the fleeing of the flyers' mind becomes routine, until one day it flees permanently. The revolution past seers of is that they refuse to honor agreements in which they did not participate. Nobody ever asked me if I would consent to be eaten by beings of a different kind of awareness. My parents just brought me into this world to be food, like themselves, and that's the end of the story. The more you think about it, and the more you talk to and observe yourself and your fellow men, the more intense will be the conviction that something has rendered us incapable of any activity or any interaction or any thought that doesn't have the self as its focal point. Your concern, as well as the concern of everyone you know or talk to, is the self. The real danger is that the flyers' mind may win by getting you tired and forcing you to quit by playing the contradiction between what it says and what I say. You see, the flyers' mind has no competitors, when it proposed something, it agrees with its own proposition, and it makes you believe that you've done something of worth. The flyers' mind will say to you that whatever I'm telling you is pure nonsense, and then the same mind will agree with its own proposition, "Yes, of course, it is nonsense," you will say. That's the way they overcome us. The predator is not something benevolent. It is enormously heavy, gross, indifferent. You can feel its disregard for us. Doubtless, it has crushed us ages ago, making us weak, vulnerable, and docile. You have your unbending intent, not to let them eat you. ** Think about it if you dare won't you.

And I Thought The Religious Heretic Was Bad. This Universe Looney Is Even Crazier.

Dashi Would Rather Believe In God. Than Some Sci-fi Fantasy.

Woodcock,

How bout Csonka the Hungarian?

Sebastian Janikowski? Jan Stenerud, excluding the 71 Xmas game vs the Phins that he blew twice, he was pretty darn good.

Only need to be concerned wirh those foreign kickers who try to throw a pass in a Super Bowl. Damn, ending that game with a shutout would've made the Perfect Season more perfect.

Samoan rugby team is pretty darn good too.
