Remembering Amare as He Might Have Been:

Like everything during that era of Phoenix prosperity, the team's plans for the future moved in warp speed. Internally, the Suns imagined a new positional prototype for their high-octane system, to be unleashed in the following season. Point center, they called it. Amar’e Stoudemire, the 22-year-old future of the franchise, was to be its apostle.

Tom Brady's 4-Game Suspension Reinstated for DeflateGate: A federal appeals court has ruled that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady must serve a four-game DeflateGate suspension imposed by the NFL, overturning a lower judge and siding with the league in a battle with the players union. "We hold that the Commissioner properly exercised his broad discretion under the collective bargaining agreement and that his procedural rulings were properly grounded in that agreement and did not deprive Brady of fundamental fairness," the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday in New York.

"A Guy Like Me": John Scott on his All Star Experience. He definitely has my vote after reading this piece.

Cleveland Indians Advance to World Series

Yeah, really happy for Tito. If the Series does end up as Cleveland v. Cubs, I hope the Red Sox ownership spends the entire time slapping each other in the groin for thinking they were the brains behind the operation.

Blue Jays Beat Orioles, Advance to Face Rangers

I watched yesterday's PTI today at lunch. They picked the Orioles because of:

A. Britton
B. Showalter's managerial acumen

Sam Allardyce: Ex-England boss says entrapment has won

The fallout continues. A Barnsley assistant has been let go, QPR's manager has been implicated and, prepare your shocked face for this, Massimo Cellino isn't completely clean!

His trade value is never going to be higher!

(Proving stupid knows no fandom boundaries, I've seen plenty of Pats fans wondering if it's time to start the Jimmy G Era and plenty of Pats haters declaring this proves Brady was a system QB all along. Particularly love this rant suggesting he can't be considered as good as Montana and Marino because Brady has a great coach . . .)

Scully works alone.

It used to be far more common and still happens in soccer. I've definitely seen some announcers who said they want to Greta Garbo it (Al Michaels and Martin Tyler spring to mind) but sports produces assume we are all dumbasses who want to listen to the insights of a former player no matter how addled their brain.
