(WVUE) - In this edition off FFF we talk all things Taysom Hill, another young American soccer player is making noise in Europe, and my visit to Chicken and Watermelon for some wings.


Drew Brees is the Saints quarterback for at least the next two years under his contract. He could play for another 1-3 years after that if he wanted. Brees is that good, and still in fantastic shape.

So for the foreseeable future, the only time Saints fans will see Taysom Hill line up at QB will be in the preseason.

Hill passed for 72 yards, and rushed for 52 against the Jaguars. He led the Black and Gold in rushing and passing against Jacksonville. Every time he touched the ball it was exciting, you never knew what was going to happen. In the NFL, running quarterbacks take a beating, and many coaches rather their QB stay in the pocket.

"I think everyone is aware that's part of my game. That makes me unique. It creates difficulties for the defense. I think there's this balance of 'hey we don't want to take away from you being you.' Let's try to limit any shots, or be smart when you do it," said Hill.

Never change Taysom, it's making the preseason very enjoyable for all involved.


It's well documented that Christian Pulisic is the future of U.S. Soccer. He's becoming a big star in the Bundesliga, and his star is only rising.

Pulisic is a big reason why the United States will have a shot of being in Qatar for the 2022 World Cup. But, Pulisic alone can't deliver a WC berth. Another young star needs to step up. Well, we might've found him in France.

Tim Weah is only 18 years old, but he's becoming a phenom at Paris-St. Germain. He scored his first goal in league play today.

Weah is getting regular work with the U.S. National Team, and now more action with PSG.

PSG already has two big-time talents in Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, and might have a third in Weah.


I'm always on the lookout for new spots, trying to find the next tasty meal. I found that at South Claiborne Avenue with Chicken and Watermelon.

The fine people at Chicken and Watermelon gave me a good tutorial on the menu, and even let me try the sauces. The winner of the three I tried, the "0017."

It was Cajun ranch, drizzled in Parmesan cheese. The FOX 8 Sports team all were in agreement on this.

Great staff, good food, will no doubt have me going back. There's like 10 flavors I still need to try.
