    News Flash: Apparently Kawhi Leonard is Good at Basketball! Who knew?

    Nickles’ Sunday Notes column (already out) contains a paragraph about Frank McCourt.

    Anyone remember Ted Sarandis’ insane interview with the man, where Ted put forth his theory that McCourt/Henry were plotting to trade franchises?

    In five years of owning the Dodgers, McCourt (and his ex) managed to almost destroy everything that the O’Malleys had built over fifty years.  If they had bought the Red Sox, we would be looking up at the Angeloses in Baltimore.

    I’m shocked but every Dodger fan I’ve encountered since the 1st inning last night is eerily reminiscent to the majority of Red Sox fans pre-2004. Basically “the sky is falling….why us?….I KNEW this would happen….fire everyone” and lots of blaming of Dave Roberts (who is still a hero to me and I will hear none of that). p

    The company I work for has a corporate box at The Stadium so I’m a bit biased on who I want to win today as I have a good shot of attending at least one of the games if it comes to be but I really do like most of the Dodger players (even Machado as, if he were on the Sox, we’d consider him “intense” ala Rodney Harrison when he came to New England). Either way the Sox are killing whichever of these two teams is lead to the slaughter.

    I was shocked to find out there are only 2 players remaining on the active roster who played in the 2013 World Series (or were on that roster).

    Gronk didn’t make trip to Chicago. There’s still a chance he’ll get on a later flight after some work.

    No Hollister either. Might be down to 1 tight end according to Daniels.

    That about equal on the WTF scale as Beckham Jr. saying he gets dehydrated because he doesn’t like to drink water. Then again, Beckham’s situation is probably worse because Sale’s belly button ring seems like a one time deal, while Beckham has had this issue before and probably will in the future.

    Using your closer in the top of the 3rd? I guess high leverage is high leverage.  I’m sure the old school guys are all having fainting spells.

    Drs Diabeetle and Zolak thought he got sick from anti inflammatories which isn’t a bad hypothesis.

    Dr Diabeetle seemed surprised that he was still hurt. I guess in his practice you get over shoulder issues easy.

    If they managed then like they managed now, in Game 7 of the 2004 ALCS they’d probably bring in Mariano Rivera in the 2nd inning instead of Javier Vazquez. Vazquez came in with one out, bases loaded with the Yankees down 2-0 and surrendered a Grand Slam to Johnny Damon. If Rivera keeps things in reach that inning and beyond it’s a whole different ballgame.

    lol @ the ending sequence for Knicks/Celtics. In the last second Tatum fouls a guy making a desperation half court heave. The Knick promptly misses the first of three free throws and that was that.

    That was quite a catch off Yelich by Chris Taylor. Then, a few minutes later, boom goes Puig.  A momentum shifter…

    One benefit of the Dodgers coming is a not insignificant chance that Shaughnessy, Callahan or Felger say something horribly racist about Puig.

    Arod and Papi should have their own reality show.  Arod is such a good sport with all the talking about Papi and the Sox heroics against his team.  I will now light myself on fire.

    Is Spike Lee such a front-running phony that he’ll show up at one of these games (in full Dodger regalia, of course)?

    Of course because of Jack Robinson.

    The Dodgers had no problem kicking a bunch of Mexicans out of their neighborhood.

    Ingram’s a punk.  Staring down the ref like a tough guy, punching Paul over like 3 people.

    Still very easy to hate that Lakers team.

    It’s even easier to hate ESPN. Dodgers win Game 7. Ohio State trounced by an unranked team. Lead story? Game 2 of an NBA season.

    Once again if the Titans convert the coach is a genius. Commentators have no concept that advanced analytics just put you in a better spot to win, there is still no guarantee. They act like OT was a guaranteed win.

    Nice opening drive by the Patriots. Maybe only one non-positive play (an incomplete by Brady) and that was right before the TD.

    Thoroughly unimpressed by Trubisky.  He has 4 completions.  And more rush yards than throw yards.
