New York City Man Gets Stuck Between Subway Train and Platform

According to NYPost:

“These harrowing pictures show a subway rider’s agony as he stands crushed between a subway train and platform Friday night.

Michael Dion, 41, grimaced in terrible pain as the hydraulic platform extender drove into his midsection at the Union Square station — and he remained helplessly pinned there for nearly 30 minutes before workers managed to free him.”

Good god I love Tom Brady.  He could be the spokesman for L’Oreal and I think my man crush for him would grow  to greater heights than it already is.  2-2 and last week, but that guarantees I had a better week than the Jets.

Jax -4 vs Oakland.  Time to start believing in the Jags folks (you know unlike the Bears who I STILL don’t think are good).  Plus you have the West Coast team making the trip to the Eastern Time Zone.  Never works well.
__
Minny +3 vs NYG.  The Vikings have owned the Giants as of late.  Whether or no Favrah plays I still think they win, and the Birds lose, which sets up a showdown next week at the Meadowlands.
__
SD -9 vs KC.  Brodie Croyle.
__
Bal -3 vs Houston.  I expect (yinz see) Flacco to have a huge day against a terrible pass defense.  The Ravens defense is playing extremely well and I just think the Texans are close to folding.
