We took some time to give thanks this week, and ignored the blog while doing so. But we’re back, and ready to review what we missed in the past seven days in this week’s Sunday State of Mind.
The Match3 went down, teeing off on Friday Phil, Chuck, Peyton, and Steph were excited to play In a big upset, Charles Barkley played well Chuck and Phil won 4 & 3, Peyton and Steph fell
Some more random sports, Mike Tyson is back! He fought Roy Jones Jr., but the excitement lacked It wasn’t a full match, only an exhibition spar The “fight” was a draw, and was as slow as tar
Moving on to real sports, college basketball A little behind schedule, still started in late fall It’s great to see action back on the hardwood A small step towards things feeling more like they should
Hate to beat a dead horse, but COVID’s still here Ravished the Ravens, a realized fear The MVP Lamar Jackson had a positive test Ravens/Steelers delayed six days, not the best
It’s Sunday. The weekend is slipping away from us. Let’s enjoy this week’s SSM while we still can.
Dalvin Cook just keeps going and going Last week and this week, after his injured groin He’s topped 200 yards two games in a row What a gift for the Vikings, wrap that man in a bow
Notre Dame bested Clemson in a top five battle The Golden Domers now sit in college football’s saddle Students rushed the field, said “we can’t stop” like Miley Cyrus Here’s hoping this scene doesn’t lead to a spread of the Coronavirus
Not a sports topic, but what the heck We want to pay tribute to Alex Trebek The GOAT game show host, his memory won’t cease All the best to his loves ones, may he rest in peace
Fall is here, friends. The leaves have changed, the sweaters have been donned, and the clocks have moved back. Let’s all get comfortable and enjoy this week’s SSM.
Tua Time in Miami, the rookie made his debut A surprise win over the Rams, the Dolphins feel anew Tua didn’t have a big game, or put up many stats But if the Dolphins keep winning, they’ll no longer be AFC East cellar rats
We crowned a new World Series champ this week, the Dodgers from LA Emerged victorious over the Rays of Tampa Bay A lot of talk on the internet on the decisions of Kevin Cash If he kept Blake Snell in longer, it could be the Rays throwing the championship bash
Trevor Lawrence, Clemson’s long-haired quarterback Tested positive for COVID, by the disease he’s been sacked The best QB in the NCAA missed this week’s game It was also announced he’ll miss Clemson’s next contest against Notre Dame
This week the Chicago Cubs declined Jon Lester’s option for 2021 Unless he’s brought back on a cheaper deal, his time with the Cubs is done Big Jon did something very cool this weekend, something very dear He’s buying the entire city of Chicago their first rounds of beer
We took a bit of a break from SSM last week. We couldn’t be more excited to return, please enjoy.
Dodgers and Rays, not even here To talk about tonight’s game, because Saturday was so weird Game Four ended with two errors and a slip It was so insane, an absolute trip
A sentence I thought I would never say Things aren’t going great with the Patriot Way Three picks for Cam, and a loss to San Francisco After all their success, hard to feel bad for New England Massholes
Big 10 Football is back, and we had a wild one Indiana beat Penn State on a last second run The call was so close, and was impossible to call How can you not love college football?
On the flip side of college football, Jaylen Waddle Sadly fractured his ankle while going full throttle Another week one star, Badger QB Graham Mertz Tested positive for COVID, both injuries must hurt
Happy Labor Day Weekend! Enjoy this holiday weekend SSM.
The sometimes awful world of social media This week gained a baseball encyclopedia That’s right folks, the GOAT, Vin Scully has decided to join Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, excited for Vin to get going
Deshaun Watson, Texans quarterback, got his big contract extension Four years, $160 million, no need for any pension Watson’s not only a good quarterback, but a good man This, this, and this, consider me a fan
This weekend we had a small dose of college football Admittedly weak slate, biggest team playing was Marshall Still good to see some shoulder pads popping Hopefully the college football season won’t be stopping
College football fans, we all knew this was coming. The Big 10 and Pac 12 have officially cancelled their football seasons for this fall. At the time of this blog, leagues still moving forward are the ACC, AAC, Big 12, Conference USA, SEC, and Sun Belt.
Mixed emotions here. I love college football as much as anyone, and was really hoping there would be some way to make it work. But, at some point it seemed like a logistical nightmare to try and get a season in with the pandemic. The #WeWantToPlay movement on Twitter has been received loud and clear, but I also understand the university president’s and conference commissioner’s hesitancy to try and make this work.
I think this timely, very recent GIF should sum up how I feel.
