Happy Tuesday, October 32, 2022. October is my favorite month. So I’m not quite ready to let it go. Hey, if Trump Cultists can just make shit up, so can I.
Besides, it just doesn’t seem natural for World Series games to be played in November. Hey, I’m not cancelling November, I’m just delaying and shortening it. You’re welcome.
Lance McCullers JUNIOR will be on the bump for the ‘Stros tonight in Game Three. Like Werewolves of London, his hair is perfect…So is that curveball.
Monday’s rainout probably benefits the Phillies, who can now rearrange their pitching to their advantage.
We sometimes forget how hard it is to coach a gazillionaire knucklehead athlete. Pray for Steve Nash.
If you call the NFL team that lost last night in Cleveland the “Bangles,” we can’t be friends. The Cincinnati players don’t walk like an Egyptian. And they don’t do that “eye thing” that Susanna Hoffs does.
In trying to explain why the BENGALS got blown out, I think I’ll shave with Occam’s Razor. You know, the logical theory that postulates that the simplest explanation is almost always the right one. No Ja’Marr Chase. And he’s gonna be out for at least another month. This could be a rough stretch for Burrow and company. Especially if that offensive line gets him hospitalized.
And, oh, Bengals shutdown CB Chidobe Awuzie hurt his right knee Monday night, and the initial prognosis is not good. Yipes, Stripes…
But, hey I’m happy for Jacoby Brissett. Who doesn’t love Jacoby? How can you not love Jacoby?
Roquan Smith is one of my five or so favorite NFL players. He looked so good in a Bears uniform. Except for the orange ones, of course. Nobody looks good in those. But if Chicago had to trade him, I’m glad they dealt him to Baltimore. He’s a natural Raven. And he will elevate that defense.
I’m eager to watch Sunday’s upcoming game between the Rams and the Buccaneers. One of those teams is going to quit. And I have no idea which team that will be. I’m morbidly fascinated.
The Jets are going to ride with Zach Wilson at QB, despite the egg he laid against the Patriots. That’s the right move. He’ll be OK.
The Packers’ offense has stunk out loud all season. But now their defense does, too. The Packers are now a very balanced team.
My only reaction to Auburn’s firing of head coach Bryan Harsin is, “What took you so long?” Cultural fits matter. Especially in the SEC.
Dear Serena. Don’t do it. Go to school on what happened to Brady. Don’t do it.
I seldom agree with Jim Harbaugh. But I do this time. JH says the Michigan State players who assaulted two of his guys in the tunnel following Saturday’s game should face criminal charges. Jim Harbaugh is right.
The Stanford student who plays their Tree mascot (How Stanford is that?) has been suspended, essentially for being an insolent asshole. I researched this. A number of previous student Tree Mascots have also been suspended or dismissed, almost every one of them for insolent asshole behavior. So clearly this Tree Problem has roots…Nobody likes a tree with a ‘tude.
