    Hell, closer to home, he won't have to buy one in Watertown, Mass. again.

    In 2010 I was watching a football game with my then 15 year old son. Mark Mosley was shown in some sort of clip. I told my son that Mosley was the best of the old fashioned straight on kickers. My son had no idea what a straight ahead kicker was. I had to get up and demonstrate the how the kick was performed. And I am old enough to remember the Gogolak brothers were considered flakes.

    I wonder how long it will take the Australian punting style to take over American football.

    One across the top of the eyes, the other across the top of the shoulder blades.

    You must know Armenians or are Armenian.

    My favorite colleague was Armenian and he was my lead video editor when I was an EP so I spent literally hundreds of hours with him in an edit bay. He is an Iranian-born, Russian speaking Armenian from Glendale.

    We went to the Armenian church on Slauson and La Tijera in Inglewood. It originally was on West Adams in South Central, but moved and I know they hit up my grandmother for a ton of money for the new church. All I remember was the food was good, I didn't understand a word they were saying, and going to church on Sunday meant I couldn't play baseball.
    I know nothing about the Angels GM, Perry Minasian. None of the stories I've read say anything about his heritage. Except for his eyes, he looks Armenian.

    I don’t know much about Armenians but I do remember a line Al Pacino had in a movie once (Author! Author!, maybe?): “You can always tell an Armenian — their name rhymes with Armenian.”

    I don't know much about Armenia but I did watch an Anthony Bourdain show on Armenia that really explained the country well, particularly the holocaust. I recommended it to a colleague who was part of the Armenian diaspora and she and her husband said it was very good.

    Can someone tell the Seahawks to stop blowing their noses on their jerseys?

    Interesting factoid: Wikipedia says he left Georgia after his sophomore season to head to the CFL and perhaps for reasons other than football.
