Alex Smith mic'd up at Pro Bowl practice

I can't even adequately explain why this is so delightful to me. It's just. Green is Philip Rivers's comfort color, okay?

I have been given to understand that the NFL Pro Bowl is for losers which is why I will definitely be watching. Honestly, a game with no real stakes sounds kind of soothing.

Life is meaningless and full of pain.

Way back during Week 1, after the Chiefs rallied from a 21-point deficit, Melissa Etheridge tweeted this:

(And I discovered that Melissa Etheridge is on Twitter, and mostly tweets about Chiefs football and jigsaw puzzles. It's kind of adorable.)

Well, today on Good Morning Football she followed through and played a little song called "Alex Smith, I Love You."

Four games, no upsets, and none of them were even particularly close. Yawn.

Realistically it was always going to be the Steelers next week. I'm sure Andy Reid has been decorating his sheet cakes accordingly.

Reviving this feature because it's wild card weekend eve and you'd probably wonder why there is suddenly NFL content on your friendslist, and the answer is that [personal profile] ionthesparrow incepted me into it.

(How did I end up in another sports RPF fandom where there isn't enough fic and most of it is for a team that I won't read? The Patriots, in this case.)

The average NFL QB stands 6’3” and weighs about 225. The average quarterback career runs about 6 years, depending on who you believe, and allowing for the variance generated by guys like Blanda and Favre, and all the cup-of-coffee players littering the other side of the bell curve. All that makes it seem Alex is sitting pretty square in the middle of things, average in all senses of the word.

But Alex has always been exceptional.

Utterly gorgeous story of how Alex Smith found a home in Kansas City in 2013.

Brett always gets to say where. Brett always gets to say when.

Deliciously messed-up, scorchingly hot.
mayhap: indistinct screencap of hands with text My hands are the best part of this episode (Sark hands)
This video where Vikings defensive end Brian Robison goes around asking his teammates who on the team would make the best hand model is incredible. The Vikings may be struggling on the field, but their locker room game is still on point.
