    Friday’s 6-pack
    Odds to win the Super Bowl:
    5-1— Chiefs
    13-2— Buccaneers
    12-1— Bills
    14-1— Ravens, Packers, Rams, 49ers
    16-1— Browns
    25-1— Seahawks, Titans

    Quote of the Day:
    “They haven’t gotten off to a good start, that’s obvious. He clearly does not like losing, even if it’s in the preseason. I heard he had a rough go of it last week just because he lost his first preseason game, and that’s not an attitude that you need to have in the NFL.”
    CBSSports com’s Pete Prisco, talking about Urban Meyer

    Friday’s quiz
    Who was coach of the Chiefs before Andy Reid?

    Thursday’s quiz
    10 NFL stadiums are domes; 11 teams play their home games in domes (Rams/Chargers share their stadium)

    Wednesday’s quiz
    Eight major league stadiums are domes.

    ******************************

    Friday’s Den: Random stuff with weekend here……..

    13) San Diego Padres have lost 12 of their last 14 games; they just got swept at home by the Dodgers, scoring a total of five runs. Padres are now two games out of the second Wild Card slot.

    Blake Snell pitched his heart out in Wednesday night’s loss; he threw 122 pitches, by far most he’s thrown in the majors. He lasted 7.1 IP, also a career high, but Will Smith hit his 115th pitch over the fence to tie the game and set off one of the most unusual baseball games in recent history— it went 16 innings, didn’t end until 3:59am Thursday morning here in New York.

    Will be interesting to track Snell going forward; will they give him extra rest before his next start? Does he just try harder against the Dodgers? We’ll find out.

    12) San Diego manager Jayce Tingler looked like a scrub in this game; he went thru his bench players very quickly, so much so that the Dodgers intentionally walked consecutive hitters to load the bases, to bring up the pitcher’s spot- Padres had no pinch hitters left.

    11) Los Angeles Angels had to be happy as hell to get home Thursday night; they just finished a very unusual 5-city road trip, which rarely happens these days:
    — They played a makeup game in the Bronx.
    — They swept three games in Detroit.
    — They lost 9-1/5-1 in Cleveland
    — They went to Williamsport, PA and lost 3-0 to Cleveland there.
    — Then they lost two of three at woeful Baltimore.

    10) Read a magazine article this week about Rams’ QB Matthew Stafford, how he has an endorsement deal and had to sign 1,500 pieces of memorabilia as part of his deal. Rams’ WR Cooper Kupp was there too; I can’t imagine writing my name 1,500 times in one afternoon.

    9) Phillies’ 1B Rhys Hoskins tore an abdominal muscle, is out for the year. Phillies have lost eight of their last ten games, are sliding out of playoff contention.

    8) Players who have led/co-led the most rounds on PGA Tour this year:
    12— Sam Burns
    9— Jordan Spieth
    8— Jon Rahm, Harris English

    7) Tennessee Titans’ QB Ryan Tannehill is on the COVID list; going to be a dicey situation if he doesn’t get off that list fairly soon. Tennessee’s backup QB is Logan Woodside, who has never started an NFL game.

    6) Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale struck out the side on 9 pitches in the 3rd inning Thursday, the 104th Immaculate Inning in MLB history- it is the third time Sale has done it.

    5) Chick-fil-A has popped up as a sponsor on Mets’ TV games, raising my hopes that they’re going to become more of a presence here in New York State. There is a Chick-fil-A in the Albany airport, but you have to go thru security to get to it.

    Could use one close to my house (Wolf Rd, Central Ave……hint……)

    4) Colorado 2B Brendan Rodgers has 10 homers this year; only two of them are at Coors Field, which doesn’t make much sense. His slugging %age is 90 points higher on the road.

    3) Former NFL QB Philip Rivers coached his first high school football game Thursday night; his team won 49-0. Rivers coaches St. Michael Catholic in Alabama.

    2) Favorites to win the NCAA basketball tourney next April:
    7-1— Gonzaga
    9-1— Memphis, Michigan
    14-1— Kentucky, Texas, UCLA

    1) Four college football games with betting lines Saturday; hard to believe it is football season already. UConn is playing; they didn’t play at all last year, so that’ll be interesting. Curious to see how much different things will be this season, if at all.

    Saturday’s 6-pack
    More odds to win the Super Bowl:
    30-1— Chargers, Patriots, Miami, Dallas, Saints
    35-1— Colts
    40-1— Arizona, Denver, Minnesota, Pittsburgh
    50-1— Chicago, Washington
    60-1— Atlanta
    80-1— Raiders, Panthers, Eagles, Giants

    Quote of the Day:
    “Word is USGA is soon rolling back driver length to 46 inches.This is PATHETIC. 1st it promotes a shorter more violent swing (injury prone,) doesn’t allow for length of arc to create speed, and during our 1st golf boom in 40 years, our amateur gov body keeps trying to make it less fun”
    Phil Mickelson

    Saturday’s quiz
    Who was coach of the Eagles after Andy Reid?

    Friday’s quiz
    Romeo Crennel (4-15) was coach of the Chiefs before Andy Reid.

    Thursday’s quiz
    10 NFL stadiums are domes; 11 teams play their home games in domes (Rams/Chargers share their stadium)

    ***************************

    Saturday’s Den: Clearing out a cluttered mind…….

    13) Royals 8, Mariners 7:
    — Salvador Perez hit a grand slam, his 36th homer this year.
    — He already has 90 RBI, 10 more than any other season in his career.
    — Seattle falls to 26-15 in one-run games.

    12) White Sox 17, Cubs 13:
    — Cubs scored six in top of the first, didn’t come close to winning. They’re awful.

    Baseball’s commish needs to have a chat with the Cubs’ owner; it is complete BS and a horrible look for the sport that one of their marquee franchises (their TV network is called the Marquee Network) is completely in the tank- they’re a AAA-quality team.

    What chance do the Cubs have of being any better next year? The year after? They’re not the A’s, Pirates or Rays; they’re in a freakin’ big market, have a lot of cash to spend.

    11) Rays 6, Orioles 3— Tampa Bay is 16-1 vs Baltimore this season.

    10) Tigers 2, Blue Jays 1— Pinch-hitter Victor Reyes hit an inside-the-park homer for the game-winning run in the 8th inning for Detroit.

    9) Because the minor leagues started late this year, they will also end later; rosters will expand next week, but only to 28 players, not the 40-man limit like it used to be.

    8) Cincinnati Reds acquired utility guy Asdrubel Cabrera on waivers from Arizona, adding a lefty bat and putting Moustakas/Suarez’ jobs at jeopardy at the hot corner. Of course Moustakas then hit a homer for the Reds last night. Losing your job is usually good motivation.

    7) Jim Furyk is the only pro golfer to break 60 twice in tournament play; he even shot a 58 at the 2016 Travelers Championship.

    6) Pac-12 isn’t going to expand, which opens the door for the Big X to add two teams to its current 8-team league (Texas/Oklahoma are leaving).

    Do they look east, to Cincinnati/UCF or maybe even Houston, or do they look west and poach UNLV and Brigham Young? UNLV plays in brand-new Alliance Stadium now; their program should perk up.

    5) Louisville’s basketball team suspended coach Chris Mack for six games as the result of an ugly incident where Mack wanted to fire an assistant coach, who then tried to extort money from the head coach or else he would provide evidence of recruiting violations by the Cardinals.

    The suspension will cost Mack roughly $221,000.

    4) Southwest Airlines lost 1,000 flight attendants to early retirement during the pandemic, now they’re short-staffed, as they try and get back to a regular schedule. I’m supposed to go to Las Vegas this fall, but if they keep jerking around my schedule, I’m going to change plans— they’ve switched my flights 6 or 7 times already.

    3) Saturday’s Cardinals-Saints preseason game was cancelled because of the looming hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico.

    2) Jets 31, Eagles 31— Jets scored on a 49-yard Hail Mary on the last play, then tied the game with a 2-point play- there is no overtime in preseason. Rookie QB James Morgan threw the pass.

    1) If the baseball playoffs started today (they do not):
    NL: Braves, Brewers, Giants. Wild Card: Cincinnati @ Los Angeles
    AL: Rays, White Sox, Astros. Wild Card: Boston @ New York

    Sunday’s 6-pack
    Odds to win the college basketball title next April:
    7-1— Gonzaga
    9-1— Memphis, Michigan
    14-1— Kentucky, Texas, UCLA
    16-1— Purdue
    18-1— Duke, Illinois, Kansas, Villanova
    20-1— Alabama

    Quote of the Day:
    “If you catch the ball, you don’t have to run after it.”
    An old Little League coach, from back in my childhood

    Sunday’s quiz
    Where did Gardner Minshew play his college football?

    Saturday’s quiz
    Chip Kelly was coach of the Eagles after Andy Reid; he is now coach at UCLA.

    Friday’s quiz
    Romeo Crennel (4-15) was coach of the Chiefs before Andy Reid.

    ***************************

    Sunday’s Den: Wrapping up a sports Saturday

    13) Illinois (+10) 30, Nebraska 22— When your team’s coach is on the hot seat before Labor Day, that’s not good, but that is where Nebraska’s Scott Frost is after this loss. Nebraska is now 16-29 SU in its last 45 games.

    Solid start for Bret Bielema with the Illini; his defense scored a TD just before halftime, a lead they never relinquished.

    12) Fresno State 45, UConn 0— Huskies appear to be something of an expansion team; they didn’t play any games last year- they were outgained 538-107 on this very hot day, with kickoff before noon local time. Why didn’t the TV folks put this game on at night?

    11) UCLA 44, Hawai’i 10— Bruins host LSU next week, which will be a much truer test of their team. This game was 31-3 at halftime; UCLA ran ball for 244 yards, threw for only 148.

    10) LSU’s football team got out of Baton Rouge ahead of the hurricane; they’ll be staying in Houston for the next six days, before they head to Los Angeles to play the Bruins.

    9) UTEP 30, New Mexico State 3— Miners averaged 12.5 yards/pass attempt; first two times they threw the ball, they gained 50+ yards both times— one was called back by a holding penalty. Let’s just say that New Mexico State has almost no experience; they completed only 9-33 passes for the game.

    8) Jacksonville Jaguars traded QB Gardner Minshew to the Eagles for a 6th-round pick; the backup to rookie QB Trevor Lawrence is now CJ Beathard, who used to play for the 49ers.

    7) Ravens 37, Washington 3— Baltimore wins their 20th straight preseason game; they’re 12-3 ATS in last fifteen. This streak goes back so far that Kyle Boller played QB for the Ravens in some of those games.

    6) Shohei Ohtani stole his 20th base this weekend; he has 40 homers, 20 steals, and is 8-1, 3.00 in 19 starts on the mound. No one has ever done stuff like this before.

    5) Houston Astros picked up old friend Marwin Gonzalez after Boston dumped him; he is a versatile guy who hit only .211 last year, .202 this year, but he hit .264 in seven years with the Astros (2012-18).

    4) Marlins’ TV posted this stat last night; players on 40-man rosters from other countries:
    136—- Dominican Republic
    104— Venezuela
    31— Cuba

    3) Was watching a Billions marathon Saturday night; am reminded that hedge fund trader Bobby Axelrod’s character was modeled after Mets owner Steve Cohen. Then I read the Mets have lost their last eight one-run games and I wonder if the Mets miss the playoffs, who will their new manager be?

    If Cohen is anything like Bobby Axelrod and Mets miss the playoffs, Luis Rojas is toast.

    2) By the way, the Mets retired Jerry Koosman’s #36 Saturday night; he was the Mets’ #2 pitcher during the Tom Seaver era, when they won the ’69 Series, lost the ’73 Series. Very good pitcher, great honor.

    When are the Mets going to retire Dwight Gooden’s #16? He was the Seaver of his era, leading the Mets to the ’86 World Series title and ’88 playoffs. He had some personal problems off the field, but so did Koosman. Gooden’s work on the field was tremendous.

    1) If the baseball playoffs started today (they do not):
    NL: Braves, Brewers, Giants. Wild Card: Cincinnati @ Los Angeles
    AL: Rays, White Sox, Astros. Wild Card: Boston @ New York

    Tuesday’s 6-pack
    Major league leaders, runs scored:
    97— Vladimir Guerrero, Tor
    96— Bo Bichette, Tor
    95— Freddie Freeman, Atl
    92— Marcus Semien, Tor
    90— Mitch Haniger, Sea
    89— Jose Altuve, Hst

    Quote of the Day:
    “Saban sets that standard for us immediately in recruiting when we step in that building. It’s not something I’ve been blindsided by. Honestly, I don’t think it’s something unique to me. Everyone in the building has those expectations.”
    Alabama QB Bryce Young

    Tuesday’s quiz
    Which current NFL QB has thrown for the most yards in history of USC football?

    Monday’s quiz
    Ron Zook was football coach at Illinois, last time they had a winning season- they fired him after that 7-6 season.

    Sunday’s quiz
    Eagles QB Gardner Minshew played college football at East Carolina, Washington State

    ***************************

    Tuesday’s Den: Nobody asked me, but…….

    13) Back in my college days, I had a summer job in an office; they hired six of us for the summer. At the end of the summer, you handed in a letter of resignation and went back to school.

    One of the guys I worked with didn’t know about the whole letter of resignation thing; he thought we were kidding him, but we got down to the last afternoon and he hadn’t done it yet.

    Finally he heard enough about the resignation letter; he goes over to a desk, rips a page out of a looseleaf notebook, takes a Sharpie and writes “I QUIT!!!!” in very large letters and signs it, as he makes his final exit from the office, throwing the letter on our boss’s desk.

    Somewhere in the archives of New York State, that letter is still in a box somewhere.

    12) Colorado Rockies’ SS Trevor Story is a free agent this winter; he’s going to get a big contract from someone. Story grew up in Irving, TX, right near where the Texas Rangers play.

    Rockies are visiting Dallas this week; I always wonder if any little conversations take place during trips this week, with Texas people trying to recruit Story to hop aboard next year.

    He hit two homers for Colorado last night; if the Rangers aren’t interested, they should be.

    11) QB Kyle Shurmur was 18-27/206 for the Bengals Sunday, in their 29-26 home loss to the Dolphins. Shurmur played college ball at Vanderbilt; his dad is Pat Shurmur, former coach of the Giants, and now Denver’s offensive coordinator.

    Bengals visit Denver December 19; Pat Shurmur visits his old team next week when the Broncos open the 2021 season against the Giants.

    10) 49ers’ rookie QB Trey Lance chipped a bone in his hand, will be out for a week, making it look like Jimmy Garoppolo will start the 49ers’ opener in Detroit.

    9) 49ers open their season in Detroit, then they’ll spend the week at Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia, staying east before they visit the Eagles in Week 2.

    Long road trip to start the season; both their opponents have first-time head coaches.

    8) Shohei Ohtani was supposed to pitch for the Angels tonight, but his start got pushed back after the was hit on the pitching hand while batting over the weekend.

    7) Oklahoma was actually going to start its football season at Tulane, but because of the horrific hurricane, the game will now be played in Norman.

    Tulane moved its athletic department’s offices to Birmingham, AL

    6) Tennessee coach Josh Heupel announced that QB Joe Milton would start for the Volunteers in their opener vs Bowling Green Thursday. Milton is a transfer from Michigan.

    5) Pittsburgh Pirates fired hitting coach Rick Eckstein Monday; must be his fault the Pirates are a terrible team. Pirates did have a guy leading the majors in hits (Adam Frazier) but they gave him away to San Diego. I’m guessing Eckstein didn’t make that trade.

    4) If you have Showtime, the great series Billions resumes Sunday night; it got interrupted during Season 5 when the pandemic happened.

    3) Kirby Puckett is the only modern major leaguer who had two games with six hits; another guy did it over 100 years ago.

    2) During the winter here in New York, I complain a lot about the 10-12 days when it snows a lot here, how it messes everything up. Snow sucks, but then you see the incredible destruction from the hurricane in Louisiana, and snow doesn’t seem so bad.

    1) Today is cutdown day in the NFL; 864 players are going to lose their jobs, many of them to be signed to practice squads, or with other teams. Very busy day for NFL front offices; the cruddy teams will try to add players the better teams cut, to bolster their roster.

    Thursday’s 6-pack
    Major league leaders, walks:
    105— Juan Soto, Wash
    99— Joey Gallo, NYY
    81— Robbie Grossman, Det
    74— Bryce Harper, Phil
    73— Max Muncy, LA
    72— Carlos Santana KC, Vladimir Guerrero, Tor

    Quote of the Day:
    “……..without Brady he (Bill Belichick) is just another coach in my opinion.”
    DB Asante Samuel, who played five years for New England

    Thursday’s quiz
    Major League Baseball added four expansion teams in 1969; Royals, Padres, Expos and a 4th team, which became the Milwaukee Brewers in 1970; what team was that?

    Wednesday’s quiz
    Gavin MacLeod played the main writer for the news on The Mary Tyler Moore Show.

    Tuesday’s quiz
    Tennessee Titans’ backup QB Matt Barkley has thrown for the most yards in history of USC football.

    *********************************

    Thursday’s Den: Doing some thinking out loud………

    13) With COVID still hovering around our country, NFL needs to put in a rule where every team has three QB’s active every week. Lot of teams only have two QB’s active; if one tests positive for COVID, then you’re in a situation where an injury leaves a team without a QB and that would be a killer for the quality of the product you’re putting on TV every week.

    12) Packers-Saints Week 1 was moved to Jacksonville, due to all the damage done in the New Orleans area. After Hurricane Katrina, Saints played their home games in San Antonio.

    11) Tulane will play home football games at Legion Field in Birmingham, AL.

    10) MLB sources are saying Dodgers’ P Trevor Bauer could eventually be facing a suspension of up to a year, once all this legal wrangling is over with. He’s getting paid while on administrative leave now- he makes $28M a year.

    I’m in a 14-team dynasty fantasy league and Bauer got cut today- no one’s picked him up.

    9) Rockies 9, Rangers 5:
    — Colorado scored five runs in 9th inning, had only one hit.
    — Texas committed 4 errors in last inning, also issued two walks.

    8) Mets’ acting GM Zack Scott got pulled over for DUI Monday night, coming home from a party at the Connecticut home of Mets’ owner Steve Cohen.

    Scott is Mets’ acting GM because the last GM got fired for harassing female reporters.

    Oy.

    7) Seattle Mariners announced multi-year contract extensions for GM Jerry Dipoto, manager Scott Servais, so ownership is happy with their team’s progress. Servais is a very good manager.

    Mariners 1, Astros 0— Seattle shuts Houston out for second day in row; former Astro Abraham Toro drove in the only run.

    6) Because of vaccine requirements in New York City, San Francisco, players for Knicks, Nets and Warriors will have to be vaccinated, or else they’ll be ineligible to play home games next season.

    5) NBA’s Atlanta Hawks signed Clint Capela to a 2-year, $46M extension.

    4) Dallas Cowboys claimed QB Will Grier from Carolina; they’re looking to upgrade over their current backup QB’s.

    3) Dodgers 4, Braves 3— LA is in first place for first time since April 28.

    2) Reds/Cardinals split a twinbill; they both gained a half-game on San Diego, which lost 8-3 in Arizona.

    1) Red Sox 3, Rays 2— Jarren Duran knocked in the game-winning run in last inning; Boston picks up a game on the A’s, who lost 8-6 in Detroit.
