Sunday State of Mind: October 11th-October 17th

We are in the thick of October. What does that mean? Football, baseball, basketball, and hockey are all getting in gear. We review the week that was in the latest Sunday State of Mind.

Bears and Packers, for the hundredth year
That’s plenty of deep dish, cheese, and beer
Green Bay won again, their fourth in a row
Ten point loss for the Bears, they continue to blow

Another game in foggy London-town
Dolphins and Jags, and the Fins go down!
Jacksonville wins for the first time in ever
Twenty game losing streak now gone forever

The Chicago Sky, crown the queens!
Championship blood in all of their genes
Kahleah Copper lead the way
The Sky are the champs of the WNBA

Four teams left in the MLB rave
Red Sox, Astros, Dodgers, and Braves
A quartet of skilled teams are baseball’s last tenants
Only two will advance and win their league’s pennants

Sunday State of Mind: April 5th-April 11th

We’ve reached the end of a week that was chalked full of sports. We review in this week’s Sunday State of Mind.

Another gorgeous weekend at Augusta National
The best golf weekend of the year, not irrational
Hideki Matsuyama is your first time Masters winner
He wins the green jacket and will host next year’s champions dinner

We had our first no-hitter this week against the Texas Rangers
Joe Musgrove made opposing hitters his baby, put them in the manger
It was the first no hitter thrown in Padres history
Musgrove moved to 2-0 this year, great second victory

Another sad chapter in the Jacob DeGrom story
The NY Post crushed the Mets and their chronic purgatory
Fourteen K’s, one mistake, and zero run support
Yet another hard loss to swallow, for one of the best in the sport

A wild cross-sport story, baseball to basketball
Alex Rodriguez breaking the bank as well as the ownership wall
He’s partnering with his boy Marc Lore to buy the Timberwolves & Lynx
The sale is reported to be $1.5 billion, back up the Brinks!
