World Series Parade hangover edition….
As the late Harry Caray would bellow Cubs Win!!! Cubs Win!!! Cubs Win!!! …Here’s hoping Cubs Fan doesn’t go douche like Red Sox Fan after their titles…Solid nucleus should make them the favorite for 2017 but there hasn’t been a repeat Champion since 1998 – 2000 when the Yankees won three straight…Bill Murray can now polish up his acting career…Joe Maddon gets even more popular than he already is and after a few more years can be Grudenesque and wind up in the booth… get ready for Cubsmania to get bigger and more bad celebrity “Take Me Out To The Ballgames” next year..Tweet from Jon Cooper (@CoopersLaw) to Joe Maddon “Touch ’em all, Joe, you’ll never manage a bigger game in your life! #1908”…Let’s go to Portillo’s today for Chocolate Cake…
The Lightning returned home with a tough 4-3 SOL to the Bruins after a schizophrenic road trip winning the first two games erupting for a combined 11 goals, then losing three in a row, only scoring 1 goal in each, and then manhandling the Isles 6-1. Credit Ryan Callahan for sparking the win on the Island – er Brooklyn, as he did the right thing pummeling Calvin de Haan after a crushing hit on Jonathan Drouin early in the first period…speaking of the Islanders the bitching of Barclay’s continues as the ice is reported to be beyond awful, a claim that’s normally reserved for MSG…Speed kills – NHL scoring is up through the first month and in on the action is the explosive trio of rookies…Auston Matthews (6), Rangers’ Jimmy Vesey (also 6) and Patrik Laine (Jets also with 6) in the top 10…Leafs Winger Nazem Kadri is becoming quite the pain in the ass. He’s doing it all scoring goals and shadowing opposing team’s top players.. Kadri was wreaking havoc on Connor McDavid and the Oilers earlier this week and to rub salt in the wound, Kadri got a beat on McDavid and scored the OT winner…in honor of the Cubbies play Pearl Jam at high volume all day long…
The Spurs embarrassed the Warriors with a 29 point win in Oakland on opening night. The word is to get physical (See Cavs series Games 5, 6, 7 last year) and it worked..for one night banging the boards and stuffing Chef Curry as he was going up for a layup – FROM BEHIND! The next outing saw Kevin Durant shove Pelicans forward Lance Stephenson to the floor after getting a little too close in the defensive end (resulting in a T). Against the Suns Curry took exception of Brandon Knight coming over the top as Steph shot a three, and wound up planting Knight into the first row of seats…Thursday Night saw a block and stare down on Durant by Jerami Grant and what’d that do? KD went HAM and torched his ex-mates for 39 points and a rout …Lakers Coach (and former GSW Assistant Coach) Luke Walton still has a little hate for the Land according to @BaxterHolmes “Lakers coach Luke Walton looked at a TV just now, saw the World Series score, laughed & said with a huge grin, ‘How’s that feel, Cleveland?’”…Steve Bartman can finally enjoy life, we hope – get that guy at a game next year!
Buccos hard hitting safety John Lynch got his due with a Ring of Honor ceremony at RayJay, and will get his bust in Canton…Anthony Becht mentioned on the Mike Calta Show that his welcome to the NFL moment when he was a rookie with the Jets and went up for a pass only to have Lynch nail him “Like a truck” right in the kidneys….Speaking of busts how did you like that Bucs primetime showing?!… Lastly, Are you happy for Maddon or are you……
