I thought it was interesting that Kolton Wong called the Rays "a bad organization" for not promoting his little brother Kean Wong. One, the Rays actually have a better record than the Cardinals, which kind of answers the "bad organization" stuff. Two, the Rays promoted outfielders Austin Matthews and Andrew Velazquez. And three, how much AAA baseball did Kolton really watch this year?

-- Suggested response by the Hall of Fame to Eric Dickerson's request that Hall of Famers be paid: "No. And for every year you boycott, you will not be invited the following year. Your move."

-- I got a kick out of the Oregon sign trolling its former coach, Willie Taggart. Said the sign: "You can't spell Willie without two L's." Appearing soon in Tallahassee: Willlie Taggart. Eventually, maybe Willllllie.

-- Did you hear that the Cleveland Browns now have a mascot known as the "Rally Possum?" Figures. The Browns finally get a mascot, and like the franchise itself, it's renown for appearing to be dead.

-- Minnesota? Wisconsin? How would Buffalo know? The Bills are in the state of confusion.

-- Possible nicknames for Minkah Fitzpatrick: 1. The Galloping Ghost. 2. Sweetness. 3. Hammerin' Hank.

-- Personally, I liked Missouri's strategy. Try to make your players look as much like bananas as possible, and may d Georgia will slip.

-- Do you ever think that our streets would be safer if we didn't have so many cops escorting college football coaches? Do coaches need that much protection?

-- I wonder what Jameis Winston thought of seeing Houston's Jadevion Clowney get fined for trash talking and then making contact with an opponent while not playing.

-- The three pro teams in Florida are a combined 6-0 behind Ryan Fitzpatrick, Blake Bortles and Ryan Tannehill. In four of the six games, the three quarterbacks have had a rating of more than 100.0. And volcanoes are spewing out frogs.

-- Possible nicknames for Minkah Fitzpatrick: 1. Pistol Pete; 2. The Greatest; 3. The Sultan of Swat.

-- Just asking: Considering the state of the Bucs' running game, what would you give for a Le'Veon Bell of the Steelers. No, "Ronald Jones" is not an acceptable response. Nor is "Lars Tate."

-- Possible nicknames for Minkah Fitzpatrick: 1. Chocolate Thunder, 2. Wilt the Stilt, 3. Megatron.

-- Here's a new way to look at the MLB standings. The Chicago Maddons are three games ahead of the Rays. The Rays are 1 1/2 up on the L.A. Friedman's. The Rays ae 8 1/2 ahead of the Pittsburgh Archers. The Rays are 14 1/2 ahead of the San Francisco Longorias. The Rays are eight ahead of the Arizona Souzas. They're 42 games ahead of the Baltimore Cobbs.

-- Possible nicknames for Minkah Fitzpatrick: 1. The Ice Princess; 2. Broadway Joe, 3. Crazy Legs.

-- I saw a list of possible Halloween costumes was led by Tonya Harding. Let's see: You need a cigarette, a broken bootstrap and you need to lie like an Urban Meyer.

-- Orel Hershiser says that Clayton Kershaw is the best pitcher who ever lived, which would make him greater than Sandy Koufax, Bob Feller, Cy Young, Bob Gibson, Nolan Ryan, Greg Maddux, Roger Clemens, Walter Johnson, Christy Matthewson or Mariano Rivera. Well, no.

-- Possible nicknames for Minkah Fitzpatrick: 1. The Mad Stork; 2. Shoeless Joe; 3. Prime Time.

-- Let me get this straight:  Damontae Kazee hits Cam Newton ib the head, and Torrey Smith shoves him. And the NFL fines both an equal amount. I know justice is blind, but shouldn't it ask someone who can see the game film?

-- As it turns out, Vontae Davis doesn't work hard for the money.

-- This just in: You can watch Eric Dickerson walk down the street for $13.

-- Possible nicknames for Minkah Fitzpatrick: 1. Three-Finger; 2. Jingle Joints; 3. The Honey Badger.
