This week marks the 25th anniversary of the debut of my favorite television show of all-time – "Seinfeld" – and it has led me to wonder something: what is the deal with all these salmon shorts?
You know what I’m talking about.
You know who I’m talking about.
But I don’t think it’s that mental trick that happens when you start shopping for, or buy, a Toyota Prius and then all of a sudden all you see are Prius’ around you. I wasn’t necessarily looking for salmon shorts.
They’re just e-v-er-y-where at Summerfest.
You can’t tell me it’s not true. Look (and trust me, these are not pictures of the same people):
And it’s not like one of the country shows at the Marcus where every dude is wearing a tight plaid shirt and every girl is wearing short jean shorts with brown cowboy boots. Or Gaga, with the "monsters." I get that. That’s a thing.
I don’t know what this is. Is it just one massive, unfortunate coincidence for all these guys to be wearing the same clothes as other guys at the same time at the same place?
Perhaps, as George Costanza surmises in "The Seven" episode, when Jerry wonders why his girlfriend wears the same outfit every time, all of these lads just happened to have started a new laundry cycle and I just caught them all at once.
Maybe. But whatever is happening, someone will need to explain it to me because seriously, this could go on forever.

Eddie Lacy has not had the type of start to 2014 that he would have liked, with only one, 100-yard effort to his name thus far. But, he hopes that the change he made two weeks ago in Minnesota carries over the rest of the way.

This month I wanted to get to at least a couple places I haven't been in the city, and one goal was to be somewhere on the Marquette University campus when something was happening basketball-wise. I not only did that, and followed it up by rediscovering an old favorite later in the evening.

There is a reason why the Green Bay Packers paid Aaron Rodgers $110 million. There's a reason Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin (Rodgers' former offensive coordinator) wasn't sure if Ryan Tannehill was his starting quarterback a couple weeks ago. Rodgers proved his worth in a 24-23 last second victory over Miami.

Loyalty. Passion. Fearlessness. It's what led Steve Wojciechowski to the captaincy at Duke University as a player, and to the right hand of legendary coach Mike Krzyzewski as an assistant. It's also what brought the man they call "Wojo" to Marquette University as its new head coach.
