While I would hardly call it a “football game,” the HOF scrimmage Thursday night in Canton was a nice serving of comfort food after a six-month fast. My takeaway? Dang, Mike Tirico is really good. And the Jets are going to be a force in the AFC East.
If the football was comfort food, the Astros-Yankees game was a rancid snack. I don’t particularly want to talk about it right now. I hope you understand.
We also saw Scherzer’s first start for the Rangers. Yeah, he’s a problem for my ‘Stros. Let’s see how Verlander does in his return to H-Town Sunday.
Ohtani with his MLB-leading 40th bomb. That, after he had left the mound with a cramp in his finger after pitching four scoreless innings. But the Angels are the Angels, so they nevertheless lost to the Mariners 5-3 on a ninth-inning grand slam by Seattle’s Cade Marlowe.
Yes, there is a hierarchy among NFL players. Different rules for different fools. The Titans cut offensive lineman Jamarco Jones after he started his second training camp fight of the week. Hell, Travis Kelce can match that in one 11-on-11 session, and he won’t be leavin’ K.C. anytime soon. I get it.
Before the Pac-12 was the Pac-12 it was the Pac-10. And before that it was the Pac-8. Looks like it’s back to the future as Arizona packs its bags for the Big-12. Arizona State and Utah may be heading for the exit, too. It may be time for the Pac to pack it in.
ACC schools and presidents are getting tired of Florida State’s “our stuff don’t stink” act. If you wanna go, go…but scratch us a check for $120 million on your way out.
I’m already a big Bryce Young fan. And Frank Reich knows what he’s doing in Carolina. But let’s get this straight. Young’s slight frame IS an issue. No amount of denial is gonna change that.
Ten-thousand WNBA career points? Impressive indeed, Diana Taurasi.
Football from now through Valentine’s Day. Makes my heart go pitty-pat…
