MLB and Mama's Birthday

You know the rules. I won't pick a game already in progress, especially if it is late in the game for my Rangers against the Tribe. I want them to rally, but it's the bottom of the seventh inning, and they trail 5-0. Sigh.

  2. St. Louis at Arizona
  3. ChiCubs at Washington
  4. Minnesota at Boston
  5. Tampa Bay at Pittsburgh
  6. Baltimore at Toronto

It's been different on First Take with John Salley and Will Cain moderated by Cassidy Hubarth this week. I enjoyed Mr. Salley's take on all things NBA with the trades and other news. Phil Jackson fired! Unbelievable! Chris Paul in Houston. Incredible!

Personal News: Today's my Mama's birthday! Happy, happy birthday, Mama! I love you!

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.
