My hope was that since so many Celtics numbers have been retired, Kyrie would be faced with taking a number that didn't represent the reality-based magical person he knew he was in the process of becoming and he'd go back to Cleveland.

Yup, in my original draft, I had Montreal winning by 23 and assigned points accordingly. I noticed my mistake, fixed the game column and the "Totals" column, but forgot to fix the "Points" column.

This should be a link about an atrocious penalty kick, but I'm mesmerized by the field condition. I've never seen a kick taker plant his foot and cause the ground to ripple out like a wave, moving the ball before it is touched.

I wish I could attribute AFC East awfulness to strategic aspirations of tankage rather than the caliber of team ownership and the aptitude of the front offices, but alas I cannot.

Leave it to New England to rig the entire league so that they are consistently faced with weak divisional opposition year in and year out.

If Goodell came forward with a proposal for relegation, I think I'd support it.

Lions and Giants both have teams capable of making the playoffs and either could win the game.

Ideal time would be during an AFC East conference matchup: 3 teams attempting to tank badly to land the highest draft choice and 1 guaranteed a playoff berth prior to the opening of training camp.

The Vols won't want to watch film of the last play. They looked like they were playing for OT instead of defending the bomb, rushing 4 and keeping a backer up to spy the QB. Coverage downfield got stretched accordingly. When the Fla. QB stopped to load up his throw, that should have given safety help adequate time to react. The play looked more like a gutsy, well executed long ball than a Hail Mary.

I can almost imagine McElwain telling the press: "Yeah, we work on Flutie 2 Phelan X Deep Fly every Wednesday in practice".

The Cleveland Indians' historic win streak began the day before a Dollar Dog Night game against the Royals and ended with a Dollar Dog Night game against the Royals.

They played two separate series against both the Royals and Tigers during the course of the streak.

North Korea launched five missiles during that time period, two of them going over Japan.

Harvey became a hurricane the day the streak began and Irma had come and gone before it ended.

By the time Cleveland was finally defeated, both Conor McGregor and the Cassini space probe had succumbed to forces greater than themselves inside the ring(s).

I want to like the Bengals, but...

I think Hue Jackson's current team might do better than his old team this year.

I think I'm all but done watching Andy Dalton and waiting for a dynamic outcome to happen.

Except that Jadeveon is never going to hear the end of "tell me how that ginger snap got in front of you and kept you from scoring".

Cincy should never have allowed the Texans to come into their facility wearing those badass all dark unis. Choose yer home colors at home, fellas. Wearing all white is a bygone Cleveland @ Municipal Stadium thing. Color rush or no color rush.

That game ended exactly the way it should have. Let's quit this dicking around. Whoomp. Arrr!

It would appear that mathematics has become a challenge for some in administrative positions. I am certain that a brief course in differential equations or perhaps spherical trigonometry will bring all back into regular order. In the meantime I will soldier on, counting with my fingers to figure the spreads, trying to advance in the standings.

Roughriders visit the litter box, where the kitties are feeling their catnip. Too bad the big horsemen are all set to put the kitties up a tree. Saskatchewan by 6

The candidates for a change of team name come to the lakeside to play the Argos. 4 Ls don't make a very nice word, but maybe adding a W will help. Edmonton by 8

The Lions will face the Stampeders, and it won't be just a bunch of wildebeests coming at them. This will be some heavyweight critters, and the Lions will not be able to duck. Calgary by 14

After falling against the previously hapless kitties, Ottawa had red faces and black thoughts. Alouettes meanwhile were swallowed whole by some hungry Lions. This is not a good time for a little birdie to face an angry Redblack. Ottawa by 11

It's another week, right after the last one!

WEEK 13

Saskatchewan @ Hamilton (Friday, September 15)
Says here that Hamilton's won two games in a row. Huh! That's all well and good against the East, but I'm not quite ready to make them a favourite against the Riders.

Edmonton @ Toronto (Saturday, September 16)
In a similar vein, Edmonton's lost four in a row, but all against tough West Division opponents - including two losses to Calgary. Toronto has been surprisingly okay this year, but probably still decent pickings.

B.C. @ Calgary (Saturday, September 16)
The Lions have been stumbling, and it's a bad time to visit Calgary.

Ottawa @ Montreal (Sunday, September 17)
I had a big long screed written about this being a meanignful game for playoff ranking tiebreakers, but then I remembered that Ottawa has a tie and thus an odd number of points, which makes a head-to-head tiebreaker extremely unlikely. So basically Montreal needs to start winning more if they want to make the playoffs. Which seems unlikely.

Good luck!

I'm amused by this line, "Mississippi State proudly tweeted the hilarious moment," and I think "proudly" belongs in quotation marks. Louisiana Tech may have made the initial mistake that cost them a ridiculous amount of yards, but the three Mississippi State D linemen who swatted, flubbed, and booted the ball 62 yards down the field and ultimately failed to recover it were the inept ones. Good on La Tech #81 who ultimately reclaimed the ball. The fuzzy video makes it tough to tell, but I believe he is the slot receiver on the far side who appears to run a button-hook to the goal line and then sprint 93 yards the other way to save his team some points.

I lived in Jacksonville briefly some years ago. I'm willing to bet the apartment complex where I lived is underwater. I hope that rcade and family are staying feet dry and all is well. Prayers for all.

Where we're planning on staying on Hatteras looks like this right now.

This is how it looked a year ago after Hermine came through.

Yes, Floridians please check in.

I don't like the look of that Hurricane Jose. He's just sitting out there in open waters, spinning around, biding his time until Irma clears out. I have a vacation on Hatteras Island next week and Jose might kill those plans, depending on which way he decides to track.

I'm trying to monitor conditions in various parts of Fla. and the northeast corner has been getting substantial flooding. No part of the state untouched due to the vast size of Hurricane Irma, and...she's a slow moving bitch. Tough combination. Should have named her Albert Haynesworth.

Hopefully, rcade & co. are OK.

So, I'd be in great shape if the Patriots had won on Thursday...

Yeah, when I saw that replay, I wondered what the best move is as the lone offensive player left chasing down that fumble.

Jumping on it left them with terrible field position, and they'd probably be punting from their own end zone, giving the opposition great field position.

Kicking it through the end zone gives the other team 2 points, but at least they kick off would be from a better point than a punt.

The best thing that could have happend was the opposing player keeps fumbling it into your own end zone, and THEN you push/kick it out the back of the end zone (or fall on it). I think at that point it would have been called a touchback, right?

(Since the opposing player touched it last before it went into the end zone.)

1. Alex Smith picks New England's "lock."

2. Harry Kane scores twice after I transfer him for Firmino.

3. Hamilton won? Seriously?

Think I'll stay in bed tomorrow in case West Ham wins 6-0.

Today, Michael A. Taylor (of the Nationals) hits an inside-the-park grand slam against the Phillies, albeit due to some shoddy work by the centerfielder.

Now, where have I seen this before?

Oh, right. EXACTLY TWO YEARS AGO TO THE DAY, when Michael A. Taylor (of the Nationals) hit an inside-the-park grand slam, albeit due to some shoddy work by the centerfielder.

Of course, that wasn't the last inside-the-park grand slam hit.

No, the last one was on September 25 2015, when the Phillies' Aaron Altherr hit an inside-the-park grand slam against the Nationals, due to some shoddy play by the centerfielder, Michael A. Taylor.

It's all connected, man!

I had a feeling given multiple people were doing it and I was the only one complaining I was wrong, but like a true American of these times, I bitched about everyone else instead of shutting up. Be the change you want to see, etc.
