BB and I awoke in St. Louis, a city in mourning.
Redbirds are now Deadbirds, and it was sudden death indeed.
Toasted Ravioli Reflection. Over dinner last night at Charlie Gitto’s on The Hill, as we’re watching the game, I told BB, “Scherzer was awful early. Awful. And the Cards only turned that into one run. This will end badly for them.”
Nobody loves their team more than St. Louisans love their Cardinals. And I feel badly for this city and these fans. And I’m fondly reminded of the seven years of my life I spent here.
But Baseball Justice was served. The Dodgers have been great for six months. The Cardinals were great in September.
I can’t wait for Dodgers-Giants. This could and should be historic.
The NFLPA would be stone crazy to get rid of DeMaurice Smith. But it sure looks like it’s going to happen. Bad Idea Jeans.
La’ell Collins, you’re dead wrong. STHU, do your time and get your act together.
Stephon Gilmore is a good get for the Panthers, who have lost almost as many DBs to injury as have the Buccaneers.
The Bears’ “commitment” to Andy Dalton proved to be about a millimeter deep. Look, I know they have to play The Kid. He is very talented. But he is still clueless, despite that promising performance last week against the Lions. Photographically speaking, Justin has yet to develop any “depth of Fields.”
You have to admit the Thursday night NFL schedule has been beefed-up this season. That’s a no-kidding big game tonight between the Rams and Seahawks. Seattle already has two losses. And we’ll see if the Rams can bounce back from the smokin’ the Cards gave them.
Tomorrow? College football picks!
NFL TV ratings are up 17 percent over last year. And NFL ratings were great last year. Sorry, haters. I know you’re taking this hard. I’ll take a knee for you.
Adios from St. Louis. We’re on to Chicago.
