Briefly.

I bought a head of lettuce from a small grocery store called Mommas and Papas. I can’t eat it because all the leaves are brown.

Trivia #1: How many phases does the moon have?
Trivia #2: Who was the first quarterback in the NFL to throw for 1,000 yards in a season? – Dan Marino, Arnold Herber, Johnny Unitas, Eli Manning, George Blanda
Trivia #3: Where is Bob Marley from? – Jamaica, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Lawrence

Only 13 teams have won an MLB playoff series by winning games 6 & 7. The Red Sox have done it twice (2004 and 1903). Hmmm

Speaking of the Red Sox… only 7 teams have lost back-to-back post season games by more than 7 runs. The Red Sox have now done that twice!

You might recall that last week I mentioned Wednesday, October 20 in New England? Well, it turned out to be Black Wednesday as the Red Sox, Celtics and Bruins all went down. (No, the NE Revolution’s win does not count)

I golfed last week and wore white shorts. My golfing partners were all over me for wearing white after Labor Day.

Article I’ll skip: Estranged wife of actor Robert De Niro will not get half of his acting income, court rules

Joe Buck is such a dick.

NFL Game of the Week may very well be the Detroit Lions vs. the LA Rams as both teams swapped quarterbacks in the offseason. Give me the Rams.

Cast your dreams before they slip away…

How is it that Astros’ manager Dusty Baker doesn’t choke on his toothpick?

The NHL is back in typical fashion. Six teams have played 5 games, the Bruins have played two.

The other night the Celtics’ Jason Tatum became just the 5th player in NBA history to take 15 or more three-point attempts while making only 2 or fewer of them.

Get ready! The price of regular unleaded gas at a station in Gorda, California hit $7.59 on Thursday as prices jumped across the country to a 7-year high.

Quote for the week: “Let your smile change the world but don’t let the world change your smile”

The Dallas Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliot touched the ball 15 times in the first half last week vs. the Patriots. The Patriots touched the ball 14 times as a team in the first half.

See above. If you think for one second that any of my golfing partners noticed what color my shorts were then you don’t golf… or hang out with anyone.

I’m adopting a healthier lifestyle so I parked and walked inside to buy donuts instead of using the drive-thru.

Do you remember when everyone complained?? Golfer Casey Martin, who won a landmark court case to allow him to use a golf cart on the PGA tour, had his leg amputated. Martin is the head golf coach at the University of Oregon.

Trivia #1 answer: How many phases does the moon have? – 8 (First Quarter, Waxing Crescent, New Moon, Wanning Crescent, Last Quarter, Wanning Gibbous, Full Moon, Waxing Gibbous)
Trivia #2 answer: Trivia #2: Who was the first quarterback in the NFL to throw for 1,000 yards in a season? – Dan Marino, Arnold Herber, Johnny Unitas, Eli Manning, George Blanda – Arnold Herber (Packers in 1936)
Trivia #3 answer: Where is Bob Marley from? – Jamaica, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Lawrence – Jamaica (layup?)

Be careful out there. (It’s a jungle!)

“Preacherman, don’t tell me,
Heaven is under the earth.
I know you don’t know
What life is really worth.
It’s not all that glitters is gold;
‘Alf the story has never been told:
So now you see the light, eh!
Stand up for your rights. Come on!”

– Bob Marley
