A tavern I've been to several times on Royal Mile in Edinburgh, Scotland within a short stroll of Edinburgh Castle.
Not only did I like the Scottish beer and haggis I had there, I also liked the fascinating history behind the name.
The tavern is named after William Brodie, one of the inspirations for Robert Louis Stevenson’s book: "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde". Born in 1741 Brodie was a deacon of the Guild of Wrights. By day, he was a respectable citizen, a member of the town council but by night, he was a womanizer, he consorted with lowlife; gambling and drinking. His dark side meant he had to take to burglary to pay his gambling debts, leading to his hanging in 1788 on gallows some say he designed and built. Rumors swirled long after his apparent demise that he had cheated death and escaped to Paris.

Being of Scottish ancestry I liked the name but I always had an affinity for the life story of William Brodie. I could relate and still can with the dual nature of being human… the struggle within. Ha…so there ya go… my name can go to dark places or simply be a place where you grab a pint.

Well...it looks like Titans brass is seriously thinking of drafting a QB. So I think we should prepare for it.

this draft class is very underwhelming...I dont see any of them being elite in the future.

it was the very last pick after trading back and stockpiling 3 extra picks...

Yeah...this is a great no-trade draft for the Titans...although I'd prefer Sims over Hill. But great draft, Watkins is the BPA at 11 no doubt

Predictions are, by and large, silly. There are too many variables, unforeseen injuries and things that go bump in the night.

Yes....I traded back with Arizona... they offered their 1st,2nd and 3rd rounder to move up to 11, Mack, Barr, Robinson were gone, it was a no brainer

Concerning the first link - I am so sick about this false narrative associated with Locker....or at least blowing it up as big as it is and not using the same criteria across the rest of the league
