I find it fascinating that the one AFC East team Belichick’s Patriots seem to always stub their toe against is the Dolphins. That Miami heat always gets in the Pats’ heads. That’s why they have already flown to South Florida for Sunday’s season opener.
This whole thing with former Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid is just sad from every point on the compass. Don’t get me wrong. Reid is accountable for his actions and is going to face the consequences. He is expected to plead guilty to felony driving while intoxicated in connection with a February, 2021 crash that left a then five-year-old girl with a traumatic brain injury. Court records show Reid was driving 84 mph when he hit two parked cars on an entrance ramp near Arrowhead Stadium. Two hours after the collision, Reid’s blood alcohol level was 0.113, well over the legal limit of 0.08. Reid, the son of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, lost his job with the team. The Chiefs are paying for the injured girl’s ongoing medical treatment.
Da Bears in a fancy suburban dome? I guess. But it just doesn’t seem right.
Very saddened to learn of the death of former Eagles center and longtime college football coach Guy Morriss from complications of Alzheimer’s at the age of 71. I got to know Guy pretty well at a couple of his coaching stops and always enjoyed his company. Love and comfort to his family.
The Astros committed three errors and went 1-11 with runners in scoring position Tuesday night. That’s how you lose to the Rangers, who broke a nine-game losing streak.
Statcast measured the Brewers’ Christian Yelich’s Tuesday night homer vs. the Rockies at 499 feet. They couldn’t give a brother a break and just round up to an even 500? At any rate, it was still the longest homer in MLB since 2019.
Well done, Sue Bird. All respect. That was an amazing 18-year WNBA career.
That’s an awful way to lose your season. Star LSU defensive tackle Maason Smith will miss the rest of the year after tearing his left ACL in Sunday’s loss to Florida State. Smith injured his knee while celebrating a defensive stop.
Why do some people get so angry about SEC supremacy? It’s the best football conference, period. The SEC has eight ranked teams in the first AP poll of the season, including number one ‘Bama and number two Georgia. Denying SEC supremacy is like denying climate change.
You know who I think is pretty good? Arkansas.
So it has taken the Steelers 50 years after the Immaculate Reception to retire Franco’s jersey number 32? Better late than never, I guess. Mr. Harris will join Ernie Stautner (70) and Joe Greene (75) as the only Steelers so honored. Appropriately, Harris’ jersey will be formally retired at halftime of a Christmas Eve prime time game against…the Raiders.
NFL opener Thursday night! That means I have to get this Amazon Prime thing figured out today!
