Briefly. 

Trivia #1: In a phone survey by Monmouth University, the top Halloween candies as preferred by Americans were revealed. Rank them: Candy Corn, Snickers, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, M&M’s, plain chocolate Hershey’s bars.

Trivia #2: Two Sundays ago the Baltimore Ravens’ Lamar Jackson became the first player in the Super Bowl era to go over 200 yards passing and 150 yards rushing in a regular-season game. What player previously accomplished the feat in a playoff game?

Shots on goal alltime, one game.

Trivia #3: Name the two NFL players who have at least 50 yards receiving in every game this season.

Trivia #4: What is the definition of “necropsy?”

Trivia #5: Why not… What was ironic about last night’s Vikings/Redskins game? Hint, it had to do with the quarterbacks? 

Speaking of Halloween, if a child comes to your door with a blue candy bucket that means he/she has autism and may not be able to speak and say “trick or treat.” Hey, I’m here to educate. 

Once again, the NHL is insulting our intelligence by listing “Games Played” in the standings. The Bruins are currently 6-1-2, that’s nine games played. Really, you can check it yourself. 

I don’t need to be forgiven. 

I am finding it very difficult to get excited about the NBA. Having said that, I can’t wait for NCAA hoops to heat up! 

Corey Kitzmann of Davenport, Iowa broke the Minnesota record for catching and releasing a 57 ¼ inch, 47-pound muskellunge on Lake Vermillion. He caught the fish in August and it was certified by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) on October 11. 

My boss makes a dollar and I make a dime, so I make sure I poop on company time! 

Marcus Smart. Another season, another hairdo that leaves people scratching their heads. Really? 

Hunting, you’re doing it wrong. Thomas Alexander (66) of Arkansas, died after a deer he shot turned the tables and reportedly got up, attacked and killed him. 

So Aaron Judge called the yankees’ 103-win season a failure because they didn’t make it to the World Series. He played poorly himself in the ALCS batting. 240 with a homerun and 10 K’s, please stop crying. This is from a guy who missed more than two months during the regular season with a tummy ache (well, oblique but it’s the same thing). 

The Celtics’ Jason Tatum was voted the #2 player in the NBA most likely to have a breakout season. Hey kid, no pressure. 

The Bruins first line is scoring all the goals, blah-blah-blah. Just win baby, and they are! 

You may recall several weeks ago I noted that King Rama X (the king of Thailand) had appointed his new royal Noble Consort, or Chief Concubine. Well now Royal Noble Consort Sineenat Wongvajiralongkrn has been stripped of her title. In a statement it was noted that “…she is ungrateful and behaves in ways unbecoming of her title…”. Unbecoming of her title? She’s the Chief Concubine! 

CC Sabathia, C-ya. Very difficult seeing you come off the mound last Thursday night, especially because I wanted Houston to extend their lead. Don’t let the door hit you in the arse. 

R.I.P. Satchel Paige (3) – The three-year old gelding last week became the 34th horse to die at Santa Anita race track in Arcadia, CA since December.

“I know there’s nothing to say
Someone has taken my place
When times go bad
When times go rough
Won’t you lay me down in the tall grass
And let me go my stuff”
 

– Fleetwood Mac
