    Sunday Sports Spectacular – NFL Week 2

    Jimmy G preparing to make a Vikings defensive player very VERY happy…..

    (At least CW didn’t have wait this week).

    The first week of the NFL season produced some good games, some blowouts, and the Cleveland Browns eeking out a well-won tie against the mighty team from Pittsburgh. Personally, I think the Steelers just took pity on them at this point. I could be wrong. I have been before.

    Saint Jimmy Garapalo of the 49ers found out in his game against the Vikings that things change in the off season when team defensive coordinators finally get some film on you. and can plan accordingly. Three interceptions, Jimmy? However, I don’t think you have to worry yet – get concerned if the York family places a call to the Krapperdick.

    Ryan Fitzpatrick turned in a beauty of a game against the Saints, whose defense was looking like they phoned it in. And I’m starting to think the offense was on the other end of the line. Guys – the entire team can’t be Drew Brees and Alvin Kamara on offense – you aren’t out there for window dressing. And if I were the suspended Jameis Winston of Tampa Bay, I’d be concerned about getting my starter job back.

    All in all not a bad week. Two asshats from Miami took the knee and were mostly ignored. I’m sure Marshawn Lynch sat his ass on the bench at the Raider game on Monday but at this point, I don’t give a crap what that idiot does.  I’d like him to tell people that he went to STANFORD, however.

    As for the week in politics, let me just say that nothing is going to make me happier than voting the smarmy Dianne Feinstein out of office in November. Her lead’s already down to single digits.

    So….here are the lineups today and I need to get the Noodle dressed up in her Saints gear for the game. Never too early to teach a child how to handle disappointment…..

    The NFL Matchups:
    Panthers @ Falcons
    Colts @ Redskins
    Texans @ Titans
    Eagles @ Buccaneers
    Chiefs @ Steelers
    Dolphins @ Jets
    Chargers @ Bills
    Vikings @ Packers
    Browns @ Saints
    Lions @ 49ers
    Cardinals @ Rams
    Patriots @ Jaguars
    Raiders @ Broncos
    Giants @ Cowboys

    Monday’s Game
    Seahawks @ Bears

    In the MLB, the season is of course in it’s waning days.  The only team to have clinched a playoff berth is the Red Sox.  But many games today as everyone still in the hunt is in playoff push mode.  Check your local listings or what the hell – if the weather’s good and you have the bucks – GO!

    White Sox @ Orioles
    Mets @ Red Sox
    Blue Jays @ Yankees
    Tigers @ Indians
    Athletics @ Rays
    Marlins @ Phillies
    Nationals @ Braves
    D-Backs @ Astros
    Pirates @ Brewers
    Twins @ Royals
    Reds @ Cubs
    Rockies @ Giants
    Mariners @ Angels
    Rangers @ Padres
    Dodgers @ Cardinals

    In NASCAR, the “playoffs” such as it is, will begin this week.  NASCAR has added a second race in Las Vegas and as a fan of that track, can’t tell you how pleased I am to see that there may be a fall option for visiting Sin City.  Only the top 16 drivers will compete for the championship – Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex Jr., Brad Kesolowski, Clint Boyer, Joey Logano, Kurt Busch, Chase Elliott, Ryan Blaney, Erik Jones, Austin Dillon, Kyle Larson, Denny Hamlin, Aric Almirola, Jimmie Johnson and Alex Bowman.  Lot of new names in that group – the young Turks are coming of age.  Amazing that it was only yesterday that moniker applied to both Busch brothers, Harvick, Kesolowski and Hamlin.  Now they are the grizzled veterans.  Will it work to their advantage?  We’ll see.   Race starts at 3:00 p.m. Eastern.

    In the PGA, the PGA Tour Champions are at the Ally Challenge in Warwick Hills, Michigan, which is a Pro-Am, which always brings a nice sense of fun.  Why I have never attended the AT&T Pebble Beach is beyond me…it’s a 3-hour drive from my house along what may be the most beautiful stretch of highway in California – the PCH….

    NCAA D1 Football Week #3 2018 OPEN

    All righty….10/14 So far and $1750/$1000 thus far. But like I said: “75% ROI in 2 weeks, easy right. NO!!! I never bet college (or any game) with real money. I’m not putting money on a bunch of 20 yo amateurs.”

    Week #3

    UTEP at Tennessee – Sat, Sep 15, 12:00 PM ET – UTEP is a 31 point dog at Rocky Top. UTEP has an excellent mining and explosives school. Yeah, that wont help. The Vols beat this spread and take out their frustrations on the Miners.

    Georgia Tech at Pittsburgh – Sat, Sep 15, 12:30 PM ET – My beloved Panthers are 4 point dogs at home against the Yellow Jackets….4000 seats remain unsold at $5 a piece. At least at old Pitt stadium there was a great crowd and if they started to get blown out you could walk down to Zelda’s Greenhouse and get smashed on .25 drafts. I think Pitt can eat this spread, this will be a great test of team fortitude after the ass beating last week.

    #12 LSU at #7 Auburn – Sat, Sep 15, 3:30 PM ET – Vegas is giving LSU 10. nope. They beat that spread on the road.

    #17 Boise State at #24 Oklahoma State – Sat, Sep 15, 3:30 PM ET – This might be the game of the week, The smurfs are getting 1 point on the road at OSU. Brett Rypien is a name you will need to watch, this kid will play on Sunday and Boise beats the spread on the road.

    SFA at Incarnate Word – Sat, Sep 15, 7:00 PM ET – There is no line for this game, nor should there be. You can’t bet against God, the Sisters of Charity would be VERY DISPLEASED. You wanna piss off a nun? Go ahead, I dare you.

    #4 Ohio State at #15 TCU – Sat, Sep 15, 8:00 PM ET – The Buckeyes have to look good and win this game or it will come back to haunt them. TCU must win this game or no playoffs for them. TCU has to win, OSU has to win big. The line is 13 on average in he big Vegas houses. This is Urban Meyer’s last week of suspension for some bullshit…OSU is pissed off and will beat this spread, in Texas.

    #22 USC at Texas – Sat, Sep 15, 8:00 PM ET – OH MAN! these two hate each other and have only played against each other twice, both games were great. The 2006 Rose Bowl is a classic. USC has a freshman QB, JT Daniels, this kid is the real deal. He’s still getting his legs under him and now he gets a start at Austin, in front of those rabid fans. THis is the big time JT, this is why you signed on with USC. Vegas has USC as a 3 point favorite, They beat this spread on the road.

    #23 Arizona State at San Diego State – Sat, Sep 15, 10:30 PM ET – Herm Edwards has the Sun Devils at 2-0 with an upset, called by yours truly, last week against MSU. The Sun Devils are for real. They are 5 point favorites at SDSU and beat that spread.

    I have 7 games here and am betting $100 each.

    Enjoy your Saturday

    let’s follow the reaction and coverage of the press and the politicians to Hurricane Florence and compare it with that of Hurricane Katrina.

    New Orleans is “Chocolate City” -Mayor Nagan’s Words, and heavily Democrat.

    NC and SC coastal areas are golf clubs and republican white bread. OF course, the press wont give a whit about the inland rural poor in the low-country/piedmont as they are conservative (black and white).
