Good Morning: Weed Is Legal In Colorado & Washington, Lavoy Allen Tries To Console Stacy Dash, & Todd Herremans May Be Out For The Season
First of all, Colorado Gov. John Hicklenlooper, that Cheetos and goldfish joke is worn and hacky. Wheat Thins are and always has been the snack of choice.
Going to be an interesting couple of years to see how exactly the states plan to enforce their new ruling. What will the packaging look like? What sizes/strengths/flavors will it be sold in? How will the states battle the feds in the coming years? Many folks may not remember, but back in 2008 Obama promised to not waste time messing with California dispensaries even though they violate Federal law, but less than a year later the same weed store raids and arrests were being made. Think Barry is a little cooler towards the nugget industry in his second term?
Also: I can see Denver “Nuggets” jerseys selling out pretty quickly. Especially with all the new Amsterdam-like marijuana tourism they’re about to get.
And somebody needs to conduct a legit political interview with Spencer Hawes and I think that somebody is me. Pretty sure nobody has enough combined political insight and sports knowledge to conduct that 1-on-1 like I would. Now is probably the best time, too, since the crushing realization of Obama’s second term and an ever-inflating deficit is still fresh in his mind. Get at me, Spence.
PFT – According to Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com, right tackle Todd Herremans could be done for the year after suffering a foot injury on Monday night against the Saints. “It’s not good,” one team official told Frank. “It doesn’t look good at all. We’re still waiting for [more test results], but it looks bad.”
…the Eagles are even more fucked than previously thought. Michael Vick may seriously lose his life if he has to play half a season more with Karl Malone’s unacknowledged mistake guarding his blind side.
