Mahomes finds motivation in many places, and that is why ESPN’s Mike Greenberg believes Mahomes will have a “legendary” season in response to former KC receiver Tyreek Hill’s comment.

Two individuals walked through the double doors of a brick building earlier this month, passing by the world-famous Blue Room and the historic Gem Theatre before entering a space less than 100 feet from the intersection of 18th and Vine.

Neither man – not Kansas City Chiefs’ safety Justin Reid nor cornerback Trent McDuffie – had ever ventured to this hallowed ground before, but they would soon learn that this humble building contained the story of how sports – and the brave athletes at its forefront – helped bring about positive change to society as a whole. It’s a story that’s far too often overlooked and forgotten, but one that deserves to be told.

If anyone should understand what kind of competitor Patrick Mahomes is it should be hill. He had a bad 2nd half in the AFCCG for sure. Now tua is a more accurate QB? Now allen is considered better than Patrick? Please. Spare me. It may be a cliché but it’s true. “It’s not if you fail that’s important, it’s how you respond”. Has Patrick peaked and will now level off, or even regress? We’re gonna find out this season. My money is on Patrick.

This might be better than the “official” album version (and both versions are light-years ahead of the FFDP version, which should not exist):

What this version lacks in Mick Ralphs’ guitar, it more than makes up for in Simon Kirke’s percussion; it also sounds pretty good with the piano dominating.

Original for comparison:

Good stuff, Nova. Have a happy hump day AG.

Not sure I understand the terminology here, in my experience flat and round means pancakes.
