The Red Sox over bet sounds good this season, doesn’t it? Looks to be 9.5 tonight. I’m in.

After all these years of NFL preseason and MLB spring training, it will be interesting to see whether more guys get hurt or if there are any other effects other than in the owners’ wallets.

This week’s sign of the apocalypse: The Washington Football Team

Tonight I’ll be watching the Boston Baseball Team take on the Baltimore Baseball Team

The guy who wears his face mask in his car, alone, with the windows up is the same guy who goes to bed by himself and wears a condom.

So some genius simulated the Patriots’ season 20+ times with three different scenarios based on Cam Newton. First, with a 78 rating, which is what he was pegged for 2020, the Pats went 6-10. Second, a rating of 85 which was his rating before the 2019 season, they went 7-9. Finally, with a rating of 88, which was his rating prior to the 2018 season and before any serious injury, Cam went off. Great season and the Pats went 11-4-1. So, what does all this mean? Well, in the final scenario, the Cowboys beat the Bills in the Super Bowl…

Help me with that.

Don’t let us get old
Don’t let us get stupid, all right?
Just make us be brave
And make us play nice
And let us be together tonight”
