Aaron Judge is going to have a hard time today topping his Friday. He first hit his 40th homer, later smacked a grand slam for 41, and also reached over the right field fence to rob the Royals’ MJ Melendez of a homer. Judge finished that 11-5 NY victory with six RBIs, and has now hit eight homers and driven in 19 runs since the All-Star break.
But he’s a Yankee. So he can go pound sand. Nice win by the Astros over the Mariners as Verlander gets his MLB leading 14th win and Yordan rips his 30th homer.
Free agency funny business by the Sixers? This could cost Philly draft choices as well as a huge fine, and team president Daryl Morey could get suspended. Looks like the team jumped the gun in contacting James Hardy, P.J. Tucker and Danuel House. Bad Sixers!
Pac-12 Commissioner George Kliakoff wants to expand the CFP. Of course he does. Expanding the playoff to, say, 64 teams is the only way a Pac-12 school could get in.
I love NFL training camps. That’s probably because I’m a fan and not a player. But I do have to roll my eyes every time I see a news bulletin when a starting QB throws a pick in 7-on-7.
No, Kyler Murray is not being jammed because he’s a Black quarterback. He’s being jammed because he’s an immature knucklehead. Toddler Murray.
I was always a huge fan of Jared Allen. He always struck me as a “throwback,” and throwbacks like me like throwbacks. I smiled when I learned the Vikings surprised him with the news he will be inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor in October.
What y’all know about these “Guardian Caps” offensive linemen, defensive linemen, tight ends and linebackers are having to wear at training camps? They fit over helmets and have proved to greatly reduce impact to the head. Those position groups have to wear them at practice until the second preseason game. Headgear technology is never going to eliminate concussions, but this is an interesting idea.
