Random thoughts: What office does Maddon want?

in general, NFL, Tampa Bay Bucs, Tampa Bay Rays

Hi, I'm Joe Maddon. And I'm your next mayor of Chicago.

– So why doesn't Tony Romo silence the discussion by telling Jerry he doesn't think he should start over Dak Prescott?

– When Minnesota Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve gripes about a call late in a loss to Los Angeles in the WNBA chamlpionship game, is she, in essence, refusing the accept the results?

– Is it just me, or is it really, really fun to watch Urban Meyer lose?

– The last time the Cubs were in this spot, they went to seven games against Detroit. Hank Borowy lost that game, 9-3. He gave up five runs in the first. Borowy pitched four games in the seven game series. No wonder Borowy blamed a smelly goat.

– There were 100,000 fans at the Alabama game Saturday who were asked not to use the bathrooms because of water pressure problems. In other words, the Tide put the “p” in the upcoming playoffs.

– If you're a Rays' fan, aren't you a trifle jealous that the Cubs get Bill Murray and Tampa Bay gets Rob Schneider yelling “You can do it.”

– Hope Solo didn't accept the results of the game against Sweden, either.

Now will certain Rays fans admit it wasn't Joe Maddon who was keeping the Rays out of the World Series?

– When Odell Beckham proposed to his team's kicking net, it was just weird. But now that Jarvis Landry of the Dolphins has said he's the best man, we have reached the ridiculous. Politicians, of course, said they support the union as long as the consenting equipment is of age.

– Even the Cleveland Browns can look down on Josh Brown.

– The only bat known to be used by Shoeless Joe Jackson has sold for $583,500. Of course, Desmond Jennings has a bat for sale. Never used. What do I hear?

– Charlie Sheen wanted to throw out the first pitch of the World Series, but was nixed. Evidently, Jon Cryer was catching, and the team was worried there would really be battery. As in assault.

– Tiger Woods says his one regret in life is … that he didn't spend another year at Stanford. Think harder, Tiger. Think harder.

– Bill Belichick evidently doesn't like his new iPad. He must not have The Simpsons game.

– Did you hear about Curt Schilling's rally for Donald Trump. Fifteen people showed up, which meant they'd have had to draft three more guys to play a baseball game.

– Chip Kelly says isn't going back to coaching in college. That's too bad: With seven wins over the last two years, he's just what East Carolina is looking for.

– Former Ravens fullback Vonta Leach asked a better question that Alex Trebek this week when he wondered why Josh Brown is still in the NFL but Ray Rice isn't. The reasons are twofold: One, there isn't video of Brown's abuse and two, the NFL big office isn't interested in working hard enough to get to the truth without one.

– Now that you mention, the '72 Olympic men's basketball team didn't accept the results, either.

It was so much fun watching the Buckeyes and Urban lose. Even more fun to hear the disappointment in Kirk Herbstreit’s voice after the blocked kick was returned for the winning touchdown. Now let’s see if Michigan can finish them off in November. Go Blue!
