My middle name is an old family name that many women in my family share.

Jewish religion, after a deceased relative, very usual custom. I’m Harry named after my grandfather Harry. Have cousins named Harriet, Helene and Harvey, all named after our grandfather.

Yes. I was named after everyone that came before me. That’s how time works... 🧐

My middle name is my grandmother’s maiden name. Family tradition on my mom’s side would’ve had my middle name be her maiden name... not sure why they didn’t follow that.

I was named after almost every human to ever exist, yet before every human that will exist.

Just middle name, which is a family surname. It's my grandmother's maiden name, AKA my great-grandparents' last name. Seems to have been a family tradition, at least for some generations; my mom's middle name had the same history.

Caused me a little grief in elementary school because it's similar to the name of a bird and I remember being taunted on the playground about it; and again in my young adulthood when I was stopped by cops in northern California (my infamous "I was standing in the rain looking at cows in a pasture" story), when one cop asked me if my *middle* name on my *birth certificate* (this was before non-driving IDs, so I carried my BC for ID) was my maiden name... (I never figured out if this was a trick question, or if he was really that dumb.) But I grew to really like it a lot, finally.

How many INTs will Brock throw today, Lazarus?

Looks like a better question is how many penalties will we take. I know this isn't gonna be pretty, but that's life in 2017.

I blame the Broncos, but a few of the calls are head scratchers, like Sanders' catch. Philly doesn't exactly need the zebras' help.

How many more blowouts before Vance Joseph packs his shit?

Idk, but I hope the offensive line goes first. Whatever possessed Elway to think that was an NFL group? Side note: I think that was the earliest CBS ever switched away to a more competitive game - 7 minutes left in the 3rd.

It’s basically the same team as last year... but they never melted down like what they’re doing every week now. Goes to show the difference between competent coaching staff and some random inexperienced guy Elway brought in.

I'm not ready to blame the coaches yet, but you can bet that if it doesn't turn around, they'll all be gone after this disaster is over.
