So, The Five Rings of Covid Fire are over. Numbers? Oh, you mean medal numbers? My bad. OK. USA comes away with both the most gold medals (39) and the most overall medals (113).
Very nice win by our women’s indoor volleyball team, which claimed its first-ever Olympic gold by sweeping The Brazilian Juggernaut. Impressive.
So you mean it doesn’t really take 35 minutes to deliver an effective PFHOF acceptance speech? Brevity won the night in Canton. Sciatic nerves all over the country are grateful.
Lovely speeches, almost without exception. Troy P. reminded us that The Game’s The Thing. But Edgerrin James won the night with his gentle admonition that we should not judge based on appearance. “My career started with gold teeth and ended with this gold jacket.”
Drew tonight. I can’t wait.
Jets Rookie QB Zach Wilson’s Road To Canton started with some potholes. He threw two picks and led the first-team offense to exactly three points in seven possessions in the Jets’ Green and White Game at MetLife. One first down in the first four possessions. It was hard to keep it a secret. Twenty thousand “fans” were in attendance.
Dak is doing some “light” throwing, for the first time since he left practice with a right lats owie on July 28. Is it “Watchful Waiting” or “Waitful Watching”?
So long, Bobby B. You always made it fun.
