Sports Blog 8-23

It’s been a while so there is aot to get to.


So this unsurmountable Yankee 7 game lead is now a half game deficit for the second time this month.  After that losing streak the Yanks got hot but still could not shake the Bluejays who are now in first place again.  Both lineups can hit but sorry Yankee fans the Jays have the better starting rotation with durable starters.  The Yanks have the better bullpen but 3 out of the 5 starters in the Yankees rotation can wind up out for the year at any moment’s notice.

I won’t get into this ridiculous retiring of numbers the Yankees do.  And no one who is not a fan of the Yanks should say anything about it either.  That is their business.  One day when they are using symbols instead of numbers maybe they will learn.


The roller coaster Mets season continues.  After getting swept at home by the Pirates losing 2 extra inning games and one game that was tied late in the game he Mets go on the road and have a great 4-1 start now go to Philly and face a team that has played well in the second half.  With a 5 game lead and the return of David Wright this week and Steven Matz soon there after do you think the Mets are going to blow this lead.  They face a majority of under .500 teams the rest of the way and the Nats 6 more times including ending the season at Citi Field.  But there is problems here still. The offense still has too many days when they do nothing.  Thor can’t pitch on the road and the bullpen outside of Familia and Clippard is not dependable.


Kudos to Cody Rhodes and Wade Barrett otherwise known as Stardust and the Cosmic King for doing the job to Stephen Amell.  Great job for seeing the bigger picture.

What the hell WWE are you doing with this Jon Stewart angle.  Just ridiculous.  I didn’t think it was possible to make Seth Rollins title reign more of a joke that it already was.

To make things worse they give us a screwjob ending for the Undertaker/Lesnar match.  Taker tapped out.  The ref didn’t see it but the bell was rung.  Taker recovered hit a low ball and made Lesnar pass out.  We all know there was going to be a Taker/Lesnar 3 but still give us a better ending.

Packers 4

Huge loss for the Packers.  If Jordy Nelson is out for the year that puts a serious crimp in the Super Bowl hopes for the Packers and will further continue the debate about how many pre season games should be played.

Tony Stewart

I am a little late about this but can the family of Kevin Ward Jr. please go away.  Yes I feel for your loss.  Losing a son at 20 years old is tragic.  Tony Stewart was exonerated in a court of law in under one hour of deliberations.  Depending on who you talk to some say he is guilty and some say he is innocent and no one can prove any of this.  But let’s face the facts.  Your son was high and got out of his race car during a race and was walking around a race track at night.  If your son had stayed in his car he would still be alive today.
