Since the Tampa Bay #Buccaneers are in the Super Bowl, & since I’m coincidentally reading the 1678 “The Buccaneers of America” by Alex Exquemelin, here’s the amazing short story of a gutsy crazy unfortunate badass named Bartholomew Portugues

1/6
2) Portugues, with 30 men & a small ship w/just 4 small cannon, defeated a Spanish ship, w/70 men & 20 bigger guns, that was laden with cocoa beans & 70k Pieces of Eight

But the buccaneers couldn’t get home to Jamaica, ran into more Spanish ships & were defeated off Cuba
3) Portugues was taken to Campeche, Mexico to be hanged

But he escaped the ship in port by

✅stabbing a guard

✅jumping overboard w/earthen jars for floaties (he couldn’t swim!)

✅trekking the jungle by himself for 120 miles

✅living off the land & evading capture ...

In 2018, the #49ers unveiled all-white throwbacks into the team's uniform rotation. It is a tribute to the 1994 #SuperBowl championship team.

Since then, fans have lauded this and called for the red version to return.

Here is the history of these uniforms.

These throwback uniforms originally date back to the 1955 #49ers team. That team went 4-8.

The helmet was red (with no logo) and silver pants were sometimes worn. The original white uniforms featured black stripes.

This uniform was only worn this season.

In 1994, the #NFL celebrated its 75th year. Teams were to participate in league-wide throwback uniform celebration beginning in Week 3. A commemorative 75th anniversary patch was worn by all teams.

For the first two weeks, the #49ers wore the standard set.

Instant Round 2 Grades! Here we go! #NFLDraft2020

Starting with...
33. CIN - Tee Higgins WR9 ... C

My 44th overall player, I think there are better values & better WRs available.

I also would've gone OT here, unless an AJ Green trade is imminent.

Building around Burrow is a good move, though. #Bengals
34. IND - Michael Pittman Jr. WR12 ... D

I'm lower than many on Pittman - 53rd - I just think there are much better prospects at WR. Multiple are still on the board: Laviska 21st, Mims 36th, Edwards 43rd.

Also, not the route I would've gone here with such a valuable pick.

My 1st Round Grades w/ Analysis in the thread:

Referenced my Big Board for value (linked again below w/ my other #NFLDraft content)
All my #NFLDraft content, including my Top 100 Big Board, in one spot👇
A+ (5 total) = Elite pick - great player & fit + excellent value
A (6) = Great - great player & fit
B (5) = Good - would've done it differently
C (5) = Reach / Left value on the board
D (6) = Come again? ... Why.
F (5) = See gif👇

Well it’s Thursday so that means it is time for the Week 3 edition of #NarrativeStreet. With two games under our belt it’s tempting to think the hay is in the barn, but that’s dangerous thinking. It will continue to change every week so don’t anchor those opinions....
...stay flexible and keep attacking as things evolve.

So let’s check in with the biggest stories and see what’s happening. We’ll hit some Team Narratives first, then finish with individual players....buckle up, it’s gonna be a long one...Happy Week 3 - LFG!

#Bears 📉📉: People are fuh-REAKing out. But they started v two ferocious pass rushes, and they came out 1-1. Am I excited about them? No. But they get a weak Wash D this week, and the post bye sked is pretty soft. Be patient.

Let's take a look at Ronald Jones #Buccaneers film and put some context to his box score. 1st of 12 runs. 12 personnel vs 8 man front. Good read on the backer play side. Picks up a 1st down.
Ronald Jones 2nd of 12 runs. Heavy goal line set. 22 vs 9/10 man front. No blocking.
Ronald Jones 3rd of 12 runs. Heavy goal line set again. Great block by the fullback. Quick decisive cut by Jones for the TD.
