Football seasons are so short. Do you realize tonight marks the midpoint of the Texas high school football regular season? Every week is so precious.
But on the NFL side it looks like the Steelers’ season is going to be endless miles of bad road. Pittsburgh gained 59 yards in the second half of Thursday’s loss to the Browns.
And there will be no season at all for suspended Celtics coach Ime Udoka. What a quagmire that whole thing is…
Pac-12 Commissioner George Kliavkoff says the added revenue UCLA will receive by joining the Big Ten will be more than offset by additional expenses, especially travel costs. He’s probably right. But he is also wasting his breath. That Bruin has left the barn.
Yeah, the Astros got shut out Thursday. But Verlander still looked good.
If the NFL coaching carousel were a poker game, The Dealer would be Sean Payton. But he says his return to the sidelines would be dependent on finding a “stable franchise.” So I guess that takes the Cowboys out of the picture.
Jerry, we get it. Of course you want to Cooper Rush to keep winning. Duh. But saying you would then “welcome” a QB competition between Rush and Dak is not helpful to anyone. STHU.
The Ravens are again dealing with a rash of injuries on defense. Baltimore has four sacks in two games. So the Birds Thursday added veteran pass rusher Jason Pierre-Paul. Good move. JPP will be able to get after the QB when he’s 64.
Brady is having trouble with the ring finger on his throwing hand, after he “banged it up pretty good” in last week’s win over the Saints. The ring finger is a big deal in throwing a football. Maybe not as big a deal as a thumb, but…
Jimmy G is going out of his way to be supportive of Trey Lance. Way out of his way. Jimmy G is a good dude.
Brett Favre? Maybe not. This stinks. And the former director of Mississippi’s welfare agency just entered a guilty plea in a plea-bargain agreement. He’s gonna sing. And it will be an ominous tune for Number Four. This is Tawdry, Brett. Not Audrey. Tawdry.
The NFL’s new Thursday Night Amazon Prime Package? Solid gold. Cha-ching! I’m sure that’s a huge disappointment for NFL haters. The National Football League remains the dog. Everybody else is the tail.
Al Michaels on that garbage-time late TD to make the final score 29-17. “That may be meaningful to some of you.”
Wishing us all a meaningful Friday…
I’ll see you tonight in Boerne.
