And so is TMQ. And so is TMQ Watch. The first column of the NFL season is always kind of strange; there’s a lot of short items, basketball coverage, and other things that throw us for a loop. We’re probably not going to hit every one of TMQ’s throwaway quips. And yes, we’re aware that TMQ did a couple of draft columns; we looked at those and frankly didn’t find anything noteworthy in them. One was his usual silly mock draft, the other was his draft analysis, and both contained the recommended US daily allowance of TMQ tropes.
This is great news, as far as I’m concerned, for two reasons:
The story of Benny Binion and his foes, especially Herbert Noble, is a fascinating one. Lawrence gave me a copy of The Green Felt Jungle (a work I’m surprised Swanson didn’t mention) for Christmas one year, and that covers the Binion/Noble story at some length. But I’m excited about a more up-to-date book length treatment.
I’m also kind of fond of Doug Swanson’s work. I’ve read and enjoyed (to varying degrees) four out of five of the Jack Flippo books, and was wondering why I hadn’t seen a new one in a while.
Good news: football is back.
News: Tuesday Morning Quarterback is also back.
More news: TMQ Watch will return. We are not sure when, as we are still busy with other things (including wrapping up DEFCON coverage) but we will try to get to this week’s TMQ as soon as we can.
Yes, I know there was a gap yesterday. I was a little busy hanging out with friends, and I made the executive decision that I’d take a day off in hopes that more of Saturday and Sunday’s presentations would be uploaded.
Two things I want to make note of before jumping into links:
FARK had a link to an Orlando Sentinel (!) article about “a surprise appearance” by John McAfee. Here’s a link to the article. I haven’t found any coverage of this elsewhere. And, in my opinion, anything John McAfee says at this time should be taken with an entire lick of salt.
With those out of the way, more links. If I link to a Black Hat version of a talk, it is because I am assuming it is very similar, if not identical, to the DEFCON version of the same talk. It seems like maybe there was a little more duplication this year…
