|Sep-24-16|| ||saffuna: Stanford playing its second game at the Rose Bowl this year. They'd be satisfied with the same result, when they led Iowa 35-0 at halftime in January.|
|Sep-24-16|| ||Travis Bickle: <saffuna> Besides pre-historic football when Sid Luckman slung passes to slow footed honkies the Bears have never had a good QB except Jim McMahon who's numbers weren't all that great but he had a really good offensive line with good receivers like Dennis McKinnon, Willie Gault & slot man Dennis Gentry. They also had a TE that could go deep across the middle with Emory Moorehead and we had Hall of Famer Walter Payton.|
The Superbowl Champs from the 85' defense might have scored more than the Bears offense that year. lol
P.S. Jay Cutler has the most TD's for a Bears QB. That says it all.
|Sep-24-16|| ||saffuna: When I first started following the NFL around 1960 the Bears had two really good running backs, Willie Galimore and Rick Casares, plus a pretty good tight end, can't remember his name. Later they had Gale Sayers for a few years, and he was virtually unstoppable.|
|Sep-24-16|| ||Travis Bickle: <saffuna> Saffy, you must have meant this Grobowski at TE but it was 1961 the Bears signed him up.|
The Chicago Bears drafted Ditka fifth overall in the 1961 NFL Draft, while the Houston Oilers drafted him eighth overall in the first round in the 1961 AFL Draft. He signed with the Bears and his presence was immediately felt.
|Sep-24-16|| ||saffuna: No, I meant Ditka. I thought he was on the team in the late 50s.|
|Sep-24-16|| ||Travis Bickle: <Saffuna> That is Ditka the player, here's Ditka Da Coach who coined the phrase Grobowski's as tough unselfish players who get down & dirty...|
|Sep-24-16|| ||WannaBe: Looks like SFG want to delay LAD from clinching NL West for at least one more day.|
Both teams are winning, right now.
|Sep-24-16|| ||WannaBe: Giants 6, Padres 5, I may have exercised my jinx with my previous post.|
|Sep-24-16|| ||WannaBe: 6-6 now, between Padres and Giants.|
|Sep-25-16|| ||saffuna: A while back I was asking what would happen if a catcher couldn't catch popups.|
Here Buster Posey loses the ball and third baseman Eduardo Nuñez charges in to catch the ball at full speed. It was a really tough play, harder than I had imagined.
Great hustle play by Nuñez, who saw immediately that Posey had lost the ball and came charging.
|Sep-25-16|| ||Penguincw: Unbelievable, Jose Fernandez killed in boating accident:|
In respect, the Marlins have cancelled today's game vs. the Braves.
Was looking forward to the Colon-Fernandez matchup tomorrow, but Sep/20/2016 is the last time this young man would pitch. He had such an amazing career ahead of him.
|Sep-25-16|| ||YouRang: Wow, terrible news about Fernandez. :-(|
|Sep-25-16|| ||WannaBe: I just got up, and saw the news! =(|
|Sep-25-16|| ||saffuna: I guess they hit a jetty at high speed, not far off the coast. I'm surprised those jetties don't have lights.|
|Sep-25-16|| ||YouRang: Still, driving a boat at high speed near a rocky shore at night...|
|Sep-25-16|| ||saffuna: Definitely. In the 90s Indians pitchers Steve Olin and Tim Crews were killed in a boating accident on a lake during spring training.|
|Sep-25-16|| ||WannaBe: New record, 11Ks in a row:
|Sep-25-16|| ||saffuna: Seems to me 21 Ks in nine innings for the first time ever is just as big a story. But 11 straight, amazing. And I didn't know Seaver had struck out 10 in a row.|
|Sep-25-16|| ||WannaBe: Thank you ESPN:

What a day for the Chiefs D!
Kansas City picked off Ryan Fitzpatrick 6 times. The last Jet to throw 6 Int in a game was Joe Namath in 1975>
|Sep-25-16|| ||WannaBe: LAD have defeated COL bottom 10th, and clinched NL West. At home, on Vin Scully's last home broadcast.|
I fully expect another first round flame-out. At the hands of Washington Nats.
|Sep-25-16|| ||WannaBe: BOS/TEX are tied in wins, at 92; with CLE 2 back, LAD one game back of WAS for National League second seed and home field in first round.|
BOS will have @NYY (3 games) vs TOR (3)
TEX will have MIL (3) and TB (3)
CLE will be @DET (4) and @KC (3)
LAD will have @SD (3) and then @SF (3)
WAS will have ARZ (4) and MIA (3)
LAD won the season head-to-head against WAS.
|Sep-25-16|| ||WannaBe: TV sets are flying out of windows in Chicago... 17-0 Cowboys.|
In other gnus, LSU and Oklahoma are not in the top 25 ranking, but San Diego State and Boise State are.
|Sep-25-16|| ||saffuna: Why are the traditional top teams not dominating as they used to, while teams from smaller schools are moving up? Number of scholarships? Better scouting?|
|Sep-25-16|| ||WannaBe: I don't understand all this talk about playing in October. Season don't end until Oct 2, so doesn't every team gets to play in October?|

Mets farmhand Josh Zeid tossed three no-hit relief innings and Israel advanced to next March's World Baseball Classic with a 9-1 win against Great Britain on Sunday in Brooklyn.
Former major leaguer Jason Marquis opened the game with four no-hit innings. Ike Davis went 0-for-3.>
I heard some ol' guy named Sandy might make a come-back appearance for Israel.
