According to a very reliable source – named TOM BRADY – he is NOT coming back to the NFL to play quarterback for the Las Vegas Raiders – or anyone else.

“I’m certain I’m not playing again,” Brady said on the SINow podcast that hosted him recently. “So, I’ve tried to make that clear. And I hate to continue to profess that because, I’ve already told people that lots of times, but I’m looking forward to my broadcasting job at FOX next year.

Brady went on to say, “I’m looking forward to the opportunity ahead with the Raiders, and we’re in the process of that along with the other different things that I’m a part of professionally, and in my personal life. Just spending as much time with my kids as I can and seeing them grow up and support the different things they have going on. And that’s a very important job and I take them all pretty seriously.”

Brady has been doing zero preparations for any return to the NFL at the moment, despite persistent rumors he was coming back. As Brady mentioned, his business endeavors have become very important to him. They leave no time for any sort of preparation to play in 2023.

Brady and Raiders owner Mark Davis are finalizing the  deal that would make Brady a Raiders minority owner. The NFL is vetting the Brady deal and must approve it.

Brady retired after the 2022 season. He said at the time it was “for good.”

The Raiders may need a starting quarterback for 2023 if starter Jimmy Garoppolo is unable to recover from foot surgery and can’t play. The surgery was required after Garoppolo failed his physical with the team. The failed physical forced Garoppolo to sign an addendum that indemnified the Raiders from responsibility for any future foot problems and also gave the team an exit from the contract if Garoppolo was unable to play.

The Raiders are confident Garoppolo will be ready for the beginning of the season, but if that does not go as planned, the team will be looking for another starting quarterback. However, you can guarantee, that quarterback will not be Tom Brady. How do I know that? Because HE SAID SO!

The Most Googled Word Each State Can't Spell-Come On Nevada!

We forget how to spell certain words, Google Trends has revealed the top-trending “how to spell” search in all 50 states.

A few easy words we struggle with include “sugar,” “quarter,” “science,” “daughter.”  Nevada? Well Nevada has a real problem – with the word “problem!Really, silver state?

Pretty sure you probably won’t see any of THESE words pop up at the Scripps spelling bee, but these are the words that each state can’t remember how to spell, so they googled it.  They came up with them by looking at searches for “How to spell [BLANK].”

I suppose a few of them are kind of tough.  For example:  “Shenanigans” in Michigan, “miscellaneous” in New Mexico, “embarrassed” in Kentucky, “kindergarten” in Minnesota, and “professional” in Wyoming . (Google, how do you spell AAAUGHHH?)

There are a lot of others are words it seems we SHOULD be able to spell.  We won’t list all 50, but here are the highlights . . .

1.  People in Kansas can’t remember how to spell “Tennessee”.  Other nine-letter words we struggle with include “beautiful,” “efficient,” and “etiquette.”

2.  Seven- and eight-letter words dominate the map.  North Carolina can’t spell “awesome,”  Missouri can’t spell “February,” Iowa can’t spell “Thursday” – really, Iowa?? Arkansas and Illinois can’t spell “tomorrow.” My head kind of hurts at this point, but we’ll go on – 

Alabama can’t spell “daughter – which is surprising on many levels (maybe just me…), North Dakota can’t spell “science,”  New York can’t spell “quarter,” Texas can’t spell “pyramid,” Idaho can’t spell “sentence,

3.  16 states struggle with five- and six-letter words.  Delaware can’t spell the word “those” (help me understand, Delaware…), Utah can’t spell “chose,”  Tennessee can’t spell “sugar,”  Georgia can’t spell “queen,”  people in Pennsylvania can’t spell “people” . . . and “how to spell GEORGE” is the top-trending search in Arizona.  (???)

4.  And finally, two states struggle with four-letter words.  Colorado can’t remember how to spell “ally.”  And Mississippi keeps googling “how to spell gray.”  (G-R-A-Y is more common in the U.S.  G-R-E-Y is how they do it in the U.K.)

Google, and the internet in general, have made life so much simpler for us all. Now go learn how to spell THURSDAY, Iowa!

Here are a few more words you be googling.
