Back to Work and E. Elliott Gets Suspended

The past couple of days have meant inservice for me as a teacher. We meet and discuss curriculum updates; the bonds of team members begin knitting while working on a common project. We have four days of building inservice next week, and then we start August 21. Teachers, play ball!


  1. Pittsburgh at Toronto - no pick since I forgot! Ugh!
  2. Boston at NY Yankees

  4. Cleveland at Tampa Bay
  5. San Francisco at Washington
  6. NY Mets at Philadelphia

  11. Houston at Texas
  12. ChiCubs at Arizona
  13. Baltimore at Oakland
  14. LA Angels at Seattle
  15. San Diego at LA Dodgers

Perhaps now E. Elliott will realize that he has to behave a certain way since he is in the public eye. I want him to figure it out now. Six games hurts my Cowboys' offense, yet it has taken an inordinate amount of time for the league to take action. This is a head-scratcher.

I did laugh while listening to Stephen A. Smith explode about Jay Cutler. Poor lamb. I also saw Cutler's statement about not needing to be in cardiovascular shape as a quarterback. Sigh.

As a recent (read since 1977) Rangers fan, it will be sad to see Yu Darvish battling against the Mets tonight, but now he gets to work on his batting in the NL. As a lifelong Dodgers fan, I am happy though. And Vin Scully is STILL the only voice of the Dodgers.


My Dallas Cowboys won last night, 20-18, and my family is happy to have gridiron on the menu. I wish the NFL would finish up their investigation into E. Elliott's shenanigans. Tsk! Give him a suspension for a game or two to send a message. End of story.


Hats off to Mike Fisher, the Predators player who retired the other day. Best wishes to you in your renewed purpose off the ice.

Sitting at 2,999 (Sigh)


I questioned the wisdom of leaving Austin Bibens-Dirkx in for so long last night. This deserves a "Yellow Flag of Shame." I found myself pacing and hoping (in vain!) for a rally after Orioles CF Adam Jones robbed Joey Gallo of a homerun. Sigh. I'll be tuned in to see the Capitán Adrián Béltre reach the 3K mark.

Congratulations to the AL All-Stars on the win last night. I did not tune in but kept up on my ESPN app to see how things were faring. Yes, I was disappointed that my boy Giancarlo did not repeat as the Home Run Derby champion on Monday evening, but my congratulations to Aaron Judge.

I'll only be able to catch Sports Nation on ESPN later today, so that is what I will do. Meanwhile, make it a good day. Be kind.

Are You Happy Now?


The Warriors did not sweep, and you would think the sports media would be sad. No, they are happy. It seemed they wanted a sweep, and to listen to the sportscasters this morning, they were ecstatic that the Cavaliers outdueled and outplayed the Warriors last night. I honestly forgot to pick the game yesterday and remembered once it had started. I would have picked the Cavaliers. On Monday, I hope to see Steph Curry and Kevin Durant rejoicing and hoisting that trophy. Enough of LBJ chasing MJ. Some ghosts are not meant to be exorcised. @DanLeBatard, I am feeling disgruntled like Papi this morning.
