Wish I was staying on..... Sepulveda
Answering clues on Drogheda.

I’ll take requests on, who to shout out to
But Mike Richards says no, what a prude.

I feel a warm breath, on my shoulder
It’s Maggie imploring me, be bolder.

I hear the talking, of Bialik
Need to parse this clue right quick.

They called my name, then
The lights went blurry.
Don't know what happened--
Over in a hurry.

I done been branded,
Tied up and busted.
The kid looks harmless,
But he can't be trusted.

They'll drag me online
Across the nation,
But my two grand buys
Liquid consolation.

Guess it's all randumb--
No single bad call.
It's just a shame--
My expertise was Football.

Here on Amodio

State Farm has a new commercial. It features Aaron Rodgers hosting a game show. He is announcing the “final question” with three contestants in a studio setup that is a lot like Jeopardy.

He's every bit as boring in that commercial as he was on the J! stage. (Sorry, Rodgers fans.)

I've never seen someone more unenthused in my LIFE. And I lived through the Iowa caucuses.

Never got to the comment section. Ran into the spoiler edited into the article at 7:48pm EDT. As I was watching the episode.

Mario claims he's shy, which might be true, but I wonder if he thinks that gives him a license to be rude.
