Pleased to report that Christian McCaffrey will now be able to order the 20 Piece Jumbo Tailgate Box with all the fixins next time he pulls up to the drive-thru at Bojangles' Chicken 'n Biscuits.

Lucky guy. Man, I would kill for one of those biscuits right now. And the tenders. And the regular chicken on bone. Oh, and those fries, the best in all of fast food.

And it's a well deserved contract. As he showed last season, the dude can do it all.

No matter where you're raised, any man who wants a biscuit at 8:30 in the morning can rightfully be declared a son of the South.

It seems to be a really bad week in the obituary department. Jim Frey, former Kansas City Royals and Chicago Cubs manager, has passed away at age 88. Another baseball figure, Hank Steinbrenner, co-owner of the New York Yankees, has passed away after an undisclosed illness. He was the son of the late George Steinbrenner.

Man I was just thinking that pre-stats, Jim Frey was a guy who didn't get an even break and then

trading Lee Smith to Boston for Calvin Schiraldi and Al Nipper
Hoo golly.
He became vice chairman of the New England Patriots, owned by friend Steve Kalafer, and shifted to an adviser role in later years.
I am not familiar with that team?

This is an error; it's not the football team. Rather, it is the Somerset Patriots of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, located in Bridgwater Township, NJ. The Atlantic League is an unaffiliated league. Nashua, NH, had a team in the league, the Nashua Pride, but as the league matured and some money came in to locate in larger and more profitable locations, the Pride couldn't keep up.
