Human beings’ capacity for self-destruction is unlimited. Shakespeare knew it. But even Billy Shake would just shake his head at Richard Sherman. Huh? Sherman is Stanford educated, and it’s legit. But that was not a summa cum laude move. Trying to bust into your in-laws’ house at 2 a.m.? (First, who tries to break INTO their in-laws’ house?) But wait. There’s more. The cops need to call in Rin-Tin-Tin to subdue you? And, come on down, Dick! You’re the next contestant on “Hit and Run.” How come your ride is all busted up? Oh, that was you that smacked that cement barrier in a work zone?
Goodbye, career. Dickie, you’re 33 and a free agent after ten years in the league. And you’re a “Cover 3 corner.” That is generally not viewed as a compliment in the NFL. And a line on the resume of the Vice President of the NFL’s Executive Committee that reads “domestic violence, burglary and malicious mischief” is not exactly a campaign slogan for re-election.
Yeah, I’m being flippant. Because I’m genuinely upset. I like Richard Sherman. I just don’t understand.
Nothing funny about domestic violence. Nothing. But did you see this tidbit? The wife of now Steelers backup quarterback Dwayne Haskins allegedly busted him in the mouth in a Las Vegas hotel room on July 3. She could face felony charges. Apparently you can call this, “Wedding vow renewal gone bad.” Evidence? Police found Dwayne’s blood and a busted tooth in the room. No. I’m not gonna do it. It would be inappropriate for me to go for the “mouthpiece” joke.
Camps opening in less that two weeks. So ESPN and other sports daycare centers are doing their preseason “position rankings.” They’re doing wide receivers now, because everybody has an opinion about them. Including me. If healthy, Julio is still Number One. And now the Titans can pair him with A.J. Brown? While at the same time pillaging defenses with Derrick Henry? It’s gonna be GOOD to be Ryan Tannehill.
The Washington Football Team has officially eliminated “Warriors” as their new nickname. Uh…good decision.
NBA Finals tied at two. Home team has yet to lose. It’s really pretty good stuff. I wish I cared. Just not feelin’ it.
Finally, I’ve always thought being a television weather forecaster was the best job in the world, because nobody even EXPECTS you to be right. But I may have to reconsider. That oddsmaker who set the Over/Under on the WNBA All-Star game at 248.5 only to see the number move 53 points in a matter of hours? And is still employed? That’s a good job! Dude says he got distracted and doesn’t know what he was thinking. Well, we’ve all been there…
