We ain’t afraid of no Jankees…
Totals of four hits, eight baserunners and 20 Ks in Game One of the NLCS. Solo homers by Bryce Harper and Kyle Schwarber (“Damn, anything that flies that far oughta have a damn stewardess on it, doncha think?”) provided the game’s only runs.
The start of the NBA season is like a “soft opening” of a new strip-mall taco bar. Nobody notices for four months or so. I start paying attention the day after Valentine’s.
Lil’ Abner and Kraft got into it at the meeting? Hell, I’da paid a premium ticket price to see and hear that! And apparently Jerrah has The Jolly Roger in his crosshairs. But at least at the moment Goodell has the other 31 owners in his corner.
This is just an off-the-cuff, seat of the pants inkling. I’ll betcha a cheeseburger that Taylor Heinicke will step as the Commanders’ QB and do a good job in place of the injured Carson Wentz. Washington may even beat the Packers this weekend, not that beating the Packers is currently all that big a deal. Heinicke could also preserve Ron Rivera’s job, at least for now.
Now we’ll see how much longer Dan Snyder has a franchise. “Not very much longer” would be a great answer. That seems to be the position of Colts owner Jim Irsay.
I’ve made my share of football “kicker” jokes over the years. Yes, I am ashamed. Yes, I am renouncing kicker jokes. No, I won’t do it again. Not a after watching the Chargers’ Dustin Hopkins Monday night. Holy guacamole, that’s a tough dude. All respect. He fought off stabbing leg pain to kick four field goals, including the gamer in OT to lift his team over the Broncos. Now he’s going to miss 2-4 weeks. That’s an hombre.
Brady publicly likened playing an NFL season with military deployment. That was most unfortunate, 12. He seems completely disoriented right now. It’s pretty clear that he has stayed too long at the dance.
The Browns and the NFL wondered if there was more stuff out there about Watson. The answer, apparently, is “yes.”
Nebraska A.D. Trev Alberts says all Scott Frost had to do to keep his job, get an extension and have his salary restored to $5 million was have the ‘Huskers show a little improvement, go 6-6 and play in a bowl game. Frost didn’t make it out of September.
