I think I’m ready to declare the launch of the latest iteration of the XFL a success. The games have been competitive, there are high-quality players on the field (quarterbacks sometimes excluded), in-stadium fans have been enthusiastic and the national telecasts have been innovative and engaging. It’s a good product, and it will be even better in 2024.
And to think, the Brahmas still have a shot at a playoff berth.
Is there any chance the Texans WON’T take a quarterback with the number two overall pick? Hmmm. And might there be an opportunity to make a big trade with the Cardinals to acquire All-Pro safety Budda Baker? Or, hear me out, maybe even bring D-Hop back to H-Town?
The Texas Rangers just won a series in Houston for the first time in five years, breaking a ten-series losing streak. No, I’m not happy about that at all. After 16 games, the Astros are two games under .500. I’m not happy about that, either.
Look, I’m not in any way a LeBron hater. I respect him. But my blood pressure spikes every time he refers to his teammates as “my supporting cast.” Yeah, that rubs me the wrong way.
The most significant development in Sunday’s NBA Playoff games? The injuries. Giannis. Ja Morant. Tyler Herro. In the NBA, as in the NFL, often a player’s best ability is “availability.”
Russell Westbrook couldn’t throw it in the ocean Sunday, shooting 3 of 19 from the field and finishing with nine points. But he did everything else, grabbing ten boards, dishing eight assists, posting two steals and blocking three shots as the Clippers got the drop on the Suns. Russ almost posted what would have been a very strange triple-double
Did you see Matt Fitzpatrick hit that 8-iron tee shot to within less than a foot of the pin to beat Jordan Spieth in a playoff and win the RBC Heritage at Hilton Head? Shot of the year so far on the Tour?
