Looking back at the Bucs win over Philly

October 16, 2021 general

5 Thoughts I’m sure the 0- 5 Jacksonville Jaguars feel extremely smart for throwing away Leonard Fournette right about now. Hey, someone has to be the new Bucs. 2.Yeah, I think Tom Brady’s thumb bothered him. And I think Tom Brady would be the last person in the world to admit it. 3. Speaking of […]

Bucs second-chancers lead victory

October 15, 2021 general

Friday, 4 a.m. It is a game of second chances. It is a game of fresh starts. Tell it to Tom Brady, whose successes haven’t made anyone forget his controversies. Tell it to Leonard Fournette, who was thrown away by, of all teams, Jacksonville. Tell it to Antonio Brown, whose scandals derailed his career. Together, […]

October 15, 2021 general

Friday, 3 a.m. They were staring disappointment in the face. They were shaking hands with the miserable. Instead, the Tampa Bay Lightning, somehow, have won a hockey game. The Bolts, who trailed by three goals with 6:17 to play, charged from behind to beat the Detroit Red Wings 7-6 in overtime Thursday night. Ondrej Palat […]

Can secondary overcome the Hurts?

October 14, 2021 general

Thursday, 3 a.m. Once again, you fear the quarterback. This time it’s Jalen Hurts, but with the confused secondary of the Tampa Bay Bucs, it doesn’t really matter who the passer is. This team can backpedal with the best of them. Five times, the Bucs have played, and five times, the opposing quarterback has thrown […]

What you should make of disgrace of Jon Gruden

October 14, 2021 general

Thursday, 4 a.m. I thought he was egotistical. Then again, a great many NFL coaches are. Feeding that ego is part of their motivation. I thought he was stubborn. I thought he was confrontational. I thought he was overrated. I thought he had way too much power for his ability. But I never thought Jon […]

Looking back on the Rays’ loss in the ALDS

October 13, 2021 general

5 Thoughts The best thing the Rays did in their ALDS loss was play defense. Don’t you wonder how many runs the Red Sox would have scored if they didn’t? 2. Over the last two post-seasons, Brandon Lowe is three-for-42. That’s a .071 average. That would be bad for the groundskeeper. Content beyond this point […]

After all the comebacks, after all the victories, after all the moments of new arrivals, the final heartbeat of a baseball team came on a baseball field in Boston.

Looking back on the Bucs’ win over Miami

October 12, 2021 general

Tuesday, 3 a.m. 5 Thoughts It’s okay if Tom Brady makes you forget about the other quarterbacks in the history of the Bucs’ franchise. Frankly, it’s therapeutic. 2. If Leonard Fournette vs. Ronald Jones II were a fight, they’d stop it. Fournette has won the job. 3. Brady’s thumb will only be a factor if […]

Botched play, homer lead Sox to key win

October 11, 2021 general

Monday, 4 a.m. The Boston Red Sox won a huge baseball game Sunday night after an outfielder made the ugliest play of the night. Call it the night the Sox flubbed their way to victory. Boston took a 2-1 lead in the ALDS in a five-hour, 13-inning game that was ended by Christian Vasquez’s walk-off […]
