Ever have those nights where you're dog-tired, ready to drop, but your mind is going a million miles an hour and you can't sleep? Mine is doing that right now. So naturally I'm writing a Fanpost! Crazy? No, I'm just a little unwell. But I'm beginning to see why Waffle House and Denny's are after hour hotspots. I mean pancakes and stuffed french toast with a side of omlette and cheeseburger any hour of the day? McDonald's breakfast till 10 can s*ck it!
So I'm lying here, my mind racing at the speed of light and the topic I land on is what constitutes boysenberry syrup? What the eff is a boysenberry? I googled it, amazing thing this google. The answer? A boysenberry is actually a cross between a raspberry and a pacific blackberry. I didn't even know there was such a thing as a pacific blackberry. I bet its delicious though. I sure know I love boysenberry syrup, so its gotta be right?
I'm laying down staring at the ceiling and I finally figured out why I'm still awake. Bad Mac-N-Cheese and 3 day old pizza, with a splash of ghastly cider beer and an episode of Sponge-Bob have left me demoralized. And I think I saw this staring back at me from between the crack of my bed and the wall. I'm afraid to set foot on the floor now and I have to pee.
Looks like I'll be wetting the bed tonight. Thought about the window, but its cold, stuck, and I have to lean over the edge of my bed to even try to work it open. Not a risk I'm willing to take.
Speaking of Risks, that reminded me of the time I heard about the OT the Chiefs are converting into a TE. Yeah, Steve Maneri, a 6'6 290-pounder is cutting weight to play TE for DA-Chiefs! Why don't we have a cool slogan thing like that you know? DA-Bears. DA-Chiefs! I'm taking DA-Chiefs, sounds stronger and more chiefy-like. So this guy Maneri played TE at Temple, was drafted as an OT, and now is going back to being a TE....risky, or smart?
I'll tell you what I would do. Find some more OT's because we're down to two! I'm thinking about this now though. You've got a TE turned OT turned TE again. Then you've got raspberries and pacific blackberries that turn into boysenberries to create a delicious treat when spread on top of pancakes. I recall a certain S named Nnamdi that was turned into a CB, he was pretty good at it too. Then some guy named Bo played Baseball and Football. And he was a freak at both. But then again, that's not really the same thing. And Bo was just a freakish athlete, so I'm nixing that thought.
Thought nixed. So can a player really learn a new position and excel?
Looks like it!
Nailed that one like Jesus of Nazareth! He rose again! No worries! Back to the point. What if a skilled player that's decent at their position, shows they have the ability to convert and become an asset at another position? Say a position that is a need? Is the juice worth the squeeze? Would you pull the trigger? I just did. I pee'd a little in my bed. No shame here. I didn't release the floodgates. If you need motivation for not judging, just take another long look at that face of death pictured above and thank the Lord of Hosts that that thing's not hiding under your bed.
Comforter is sliding off the side. Not in a natural way either. And its starting to get cold. And I still gotta pee some more. But I still have this thought spinning through my head. We just converted a converted player back to his regular position. Could we do it again with someone else? Even if it wasn't their converted or natural position? It worked out for Tamba. It worked out for Nnamdi. It could even work out for Tebow. But I don't think the Donkos are smart enough to realize they have an All Pro FB under Center. But again, I wonder, could an Offensive player switch to Defensive? Or vice versa? Julian Edelman I feel bad for. But he may get better...life is about taking risks right? Would it be worth risking say, a young CB, and converting him into a RB? Maybe a guy like Javier Arenas?
Now that's about as delusional as the guy that wrote "Little T Learns To Share." But I can't shake the feeling. You know, the one where you're tired, and sleepy, gotta go peepy, but the Death Eater under your bed won't let you? Well, I'm gonna take the risk and make the plunge. I figure if I can long-jump off the bed I may make it to the door. Once I'm there I feel my chances are pretty good. Just gotta time it right.
Speaking of timing, the time is right to experiment and think outside the box. The likelihood of Arenas being a RB next season is slim for sure. But the idea itself is an intriguing one, no lie. How many times does it take to bring that guy down on punt returns? Its amazing watching him run.
Now I'm thinking about how signing Stanford Routt while still resigning Carr would be swimp-diddy. And I don't even know what that means, but I think its a good thing. If that were to happen, Arenas becomes available for a crazy scenario like this and I get to take credit for being delusional about it.
Either way, its an interesting thought. Raspberries and pacific blackberries together....beautiful. But how did they get that name? Boysenberry. Its one of those questions like: how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie-Pop, or how did a Death Eater get under my bed? The world may never know. But I do know this! I like Pancakes, the Chiefs, and Boysenberry syrup! And not necessarily in that order.
If the Chiefs wanted to do something strange or unusual, say converting their Nickle Back into a Running Back, well, I'd say bravo. About time we flipped the script and tried to be innovative. It may or may not work, but I wouldn't be mad to see it tried. Thinking outside the box would be a welcomed breath of fresh air. But that's just me. Well folks, that's all for now, I'm busting at the seams so it seems our time is up. Wish me luck!
I knew I loved the Chiefs for a reason. I bid you all a goodnight!
