Briefly.

It was correctly pointed out to me that Brad Johnson and Mark Rypien can be added to last week’s trivia question answer of Super Bowl winning quarterbacks who have played on 5 or more NFL teams. Thanks for keeping me straight…

Trivia #1: Who is the only Masters champion to start the final round outside of the top 10? Jack Burke Jr., Art Wall Jr., Danny Willett, Seve Ballesteros, Jose Maria Olazabal?

Trivia #2: Magnolia Lane (at Augusta National) is how long? 150 yards, 220 yards, 275 yards, 330 yards, 400 yards, 1 mile?

Trivia #3: Who is Ron Townsend?

Trivia #4: How many James Bond films did Sean Connery appear in?

Betfair Exchange, the world’s largest online betting exchange, reported that someone bet $1.29 million on Joe Biden to win the U.S. election. The 10 largest bets in Betfair’s history before now, all on sporting events, have been winners.

Quote for the week: We sold out and won three Super Bowls, played in a fourth, and played in th AFC Championship Game. This year we have less to work with. It’s not an excuse. It’s just the facts.” – Bill Belichick

I don’t always jump out of bed like a Ninja, but when I do… it’s because of a leg cramp.

Ease up Patriots’ fans. Last Sunday the Los Angeles Chargers became the first team in NFL history to blow leads of at least 16 points in four consecutive games.

Ease up Patriots’ fans. Patrick Mahomes threw more touchdown passes (5) against the New York Jets than the Jets have thrown all season.

Speaking of the lowly Jets, coach Adam Gase now has more 20-point losses with the Jets (8) than he does wins (7).

The Pats can’t lose on Monday Night to the Jets, can they?

The NBA will start up again on December 22 with a 72-game schedule.

After New England’s 24-21 loss to the Buffalo Bills last Sunday, Bill Belichick is 51-66 without Tom Brady as his starting quarterback, 224-66 with Brady as his starting quarterback.

I say again, all-world quarterback Jimmy “G” Garoppolo cannot stay on the field and again is out for at least another 6 weeks. Traded for a second round pick? Not bad, say I.

In 20 years when kids ask about the 2020 toilet paper shortage, I’m telling them we had to drag our butts across the lawn, in the snow, uphill, both ways, dodging murder hornets!

Last night the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rogers joined Tom Brady as the only quarterbacks in NFL history to throw at least 24 touchdown passes and two or fewer interceptions through the first 8 games of the season.

This week’s sign of the apocalypse: The Masters begins next Thursday… November 12.

“Say your prayers, little one
Don’t forget, my son
To include everyone

I tuck you in, warm within
Keep you free from sin
Til the Sandman he comes

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

Exit light
Enter light
Take my hand
We’re off to Never, Neverland”

– Metallica
