Thought of the day:

Before you judge someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, if they get angry, you’re a mile away and you’re wearing their shoes.

So here’s my idea for Baker Mayfield’s next commercial… He’s getting a tour of his new “home” and they open a door and:
Baker says, ” Is that the massage room?”..
Tour guide says: “yup”.
Baker says, counting, “24 tables?”
Tour guide: ” correct again”.
Baker says: “why so many?”
Tour guide: “We got a real good deal on them from the Texans. They said they didn’t need them anymore…”
