BBAO: Let's catch up, shall we?

We're Black and Blue All Over:

So, yeah. Monday. That was interesting.

A bizarre descent of December fog basically shut down my favorite NFC North airport in Appleton, Wis., so at about 11:45 a.m. local time I realized that if I was going to get back to blog headquarters on Monday, it was going to be via car. And because I haven't yet learned how to dictate blog items into our software (or if it's possible), and because I never, ever, never operate digital equipment while driving, I had a nice little five-hour stretch of non-productivity on what is usually our busiest day of the week.

That's why our last Free Head Exam didn't post until after 11 p.m. ET, and that's why we didn't cover some of the daily news that emerged, most notably the torn ACL of Detroit Lions receiver Ryan Broyles. So let's do our best to get back to even in our morning tour, and we'll take it from there. Deal?
