This isn’t a real Rockpile Review.  It could be, because Brandon Beane once again has orchestrated a lot of change. that's worth talking about.

 

This is just a simple announcement that I don’t intend to write The Rockpile Review on a weekly basis for the 2022 season.  I probably still will write occasional pieces under that name, but not game-by-game, as I’ve done in the past.  I’m cutting back for a variety of reasons, but probably mostly because finding the time to write and finding fresh things to write about was becoming a chore.  It’s easier to be creative, I’ve found, when the team is 7-9.  These days, I find myself struggling every week to find a new and better way to say “WOW!!!”  

 

I expect to continue to be here regularly, writing my usual long-winded stuff.  Just not every Sunday night.  

 

Go BILLS!

Sad to hear, but I get it. Thank you for all of your great contributions to this family.  I look forward to hearing your creative insights, even if they are no longer on a regular basis.  Go Bills!

I actually suffered through a traumatic event over the weekend.  As I was messing around with one of my sprinkler heads, my girlfriend snapped a pic so she could post it to a group chat we're in with a couple friends and make a joke about a wet t-shirt show.  I saw the pic and noticed that my hair was a hell of a lot more salt than pepa.  I've never cared about going gray .. always happy to have a full head of hair.  Well, then I zoomed in.  I am thinning at the crown.

 

I was like, "what the f*ck is this?!?!  Am I going bald???"

 

Her response: "I figured you knew!"

 

How the hell am I supposed to see thinning back there?  I don't live in a house full of ***** mirrors.

 

Other than that tiny bit of thinning, I have a glorious head of hair, pal.  AND I think I've got about 10 years on you, so you just wait.

 

I'm having minor lawn issues, too - so you've really altered my Tuesday.

 

Dick.

 

 

i honestly love that i altered you're tuesday.

 

i don't know...i'm going to be 45 in september, and you can't see a bit of my scalp.  no light penetrates this head of hard.  i have a tiny amount of gray that you can see if you look very closely, but my hair resembles that of a 25 year old.

i appreciate the effort @Shaw66, @Bill in NYC and @Virgil among others have done recapping the games the past few years.  They were always my first reads after the games to get good analysis and observations.  I can't imagine the time and effort that went into those weekly nuggets.  Thanks for what you all did and continue to do for the rest of us

"Penetrates this head of hard"?

 

Teef....do you want to elaborate?
