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.

Titans Sign DT Douzable

Titans signed DT Leger Douzable to a one-year contract. Undrafted out of UCF in 2008, Douzable's stout length at 6-foot-4 and 284 pounds has gotten him looks from the Vikings, Giants, Rams, Lions, and Jags. According to Pro Football Focus, Douzable was a highly effective run-stopper while picking up significant snaps down the stretch last year in Jacksonville.

Suck it Broncos! They take Porter too.

Broncos agreed to terms with CB Tracy Porter to a one-year, $4 million contract. Porter reunited with the quarterback he intercepted in Super Bowl XLIV. The best cornerback left on the market, Porter had previously visited Tennessee and Cincinnati. Still just 25 years old, Porter can start opposite Champ Bailey, allowing him to re-enter free agency in his prime after playing out the season on a prove-it deal.
