I got a girl named Daisy, she almost drive me crazy.

Wow, what a game last night on TNF! Baker Mayfield, signed by the Rams earlier in the week and given his playbook during his Tuesday night flight to L.A., led the Rams to a miraculous comeback win over the Raiders 17-16.

I hope some kids took note when Patrice Bergeron waited outside the locker room the other night after the game to speak with former coach Bruce Cassidy. The latter is now coach of the Las Vegas Knights and his team had just ended the Bruins’ record home winning streak. A class act, that Bergeron.

On this day: December 9, 1851, the first Young Men’s Christian Association in North America is set up in Montreal

Why do we let ourselves get caught up in players’ contracts? Trust me, the San Dingo Padres are not thinking about the year 2033 when signing Bogaerts to that ridiculous 11-year contract. The Padres are thinking about 2023 and going for it all. Paid too much? It really doesn’t matter, they got him.

This week’s sign of the apocalypse: Nigeria will soon be restricting ATM withdrawals to just $45 per day as part of a push to move the country toward a cashless economy.

Well, you have to give Deion Sanders credit. He turned around the football program at Jackson State very quickly and earned the head job at Colorado.

He seemed to move on at the first chance he got.

Viktor Bout, the ‘Merchant of Death’, serving 25 years for conspiracy to kill Americans, conspiracy to deliver anti-aircraft missiles and aiding a terrorist organization. Britney Griner, carrying cannabis products through a Moscow airport. Even trade? I/We could go on all day.

“Don’t give up, don’t ever give up.” Yes, it’s “Jimmy V” week again and I’ve twice re-watched one of the greatest motivational, inspiring speeches of all-time. The V Foundation awards 100% of direct donations to cancer research and programs. The Foundation’s endowment covers administrative expenses. This places the V Foundation among the top 2% of all charities evaluated.

Well, I watched two of the three USMNT’s World Cup games and thought I might have developed an eye for national soccer. Nope. Haven’t watched a second since the U.S. was eliminated.

Just a general observation. There are two non-alcohol sections at Gillette Stadium, both are on the visitor’s side of the field. I find that mildly interesting/funny.

The Celtics still boast the best record in the NBA while the Bruins have the best points % in the NHL.

Meet the Ass family: Smart, Wise, Lazy, Kiss, Dumb, Jack and Big.

Avoiding the awkward, to say the least. Former Louisville football coach Scott Satterfield left Louisville to take the then-vacant head coaching job at Cincinnati. Louisville and Cincinnati square off in less than two weeks in the Wasabi Fenway Bowl. Satterfield has opted not to be on the Cincinnati sideline while former Super Bowl MVP Deion Branch will lead Louisville.
