I am rubbing my eyes over men who think it is the equivalent of challenging someone to a duel to have a "debate." I see one laid up broken waste of money who is bored and therefore trying to bother another dude who is booked, busy, unhurt and getting laid (maybe) by a rich and extremely popular lady.

Taylor Kay Phillips, you are a GIFT. I can’t stop laughing.

There has to be something in the water in Green Bay that activates something unseemly in quarterbacks when they leave, right?

If you’re unsure whether hot toddies are a proven cure, maybe you should ask Aaron Rogers. He seems to know a lot about such things.

Jets fans didn't deserve Rogers; they've been through enough hell already.

#2 A.Rod is on track to be Dingus of the Decade (TM pending!) at this point.

He is the poster boy for “better to be silent and thought a fool then speak and leave no room for doubt.”

Also, it pisses me off that the word “conversation” has been weaponized by people who are jackasses.

I'm a person who can have fun watching pro sports of all kinds including the NFL, but it's not something I regularly make time for so I rarely know what's going on in the periphery (except for Swift+Kelce, which is inescapable). As such, I really appreciate Taylor's rundown of Aaron Rodgers' chronic dingusry.

As for the drink of the week, I hope you're feeling better Lyz and thanks for the reminder to restock hot toddy ingredients before I get much further into sickness season.

Taylor, maybe it was off topic to include here or too football-y, but said douche canoe was also spotted this Week 5 throwing around without his crutches. Is it voodoo that’s healing that tendon, or is just further LOOK AT ME syndrome??

I have thoughts on hot toddies. Love them and it’s my go-to when I’m feeling the crud creeps in as well, but I also want to throw something else out there. Growing up, my mom would make a concoction of Chardonnay, lemon juice and honey when I was sick and couldn’t sleep, which was a lot as I had chronic bronchitis. She’d warm it up on the stove in her one cup metal measuring cup and then pour it into a mug for me. I make it sometimes now when I’m sick and need some extra loving. Also, jello water where she’d made a thing of jello and leave it on the counter in a Tupperware pitcher so it would stay liquidish. Any other random mama drinks out there you were made as a kid? We’re the eighties just a wild time to be anlive? Are these midwest things? We lived in Kansas until I was eight and moved to Montana - I mention these to friends here and they look at me like I’ve lost my marbles.

Sounds like #2 A. Rod needs a couple of huge band-aids, too - one for his head, one for his heart.

Re: Lina Khan--any time she enters the news cycle I gleefully run to my work's enterprise subscription to the WSJ to read unintentionally hilarious, absolutely unhinged opinion pieces written by the worst men and I should not enjoy this so much, AND YET.

A PERFECTLY WRITTEN DINGUS.

Some space for dingusness should be made for Pat McAfee, the former NFL punter turned podcaster turned ESPN host who has provided the major forum for all of Aaron Rogers’ dingusry.

Healing vibes to you, Lyz, and huge thanks for the “guest Dingus diva” from KC. I did a spit-take on her dubbing Aaron Rogers a “douchecanoe” and then lost it completely when she aptly described TK’s ‘stache as “Paul Blart, Mall Cop” (one of my favorite things about Kevin James!)!!!!! THANKS!
