— Movie of the Day: Major League (1989)— The new owner of a major league team puts together a purposely horrible team so they’ll lose and she can move the team and make more money. But when the plot is uncovered, they start winning just to spite her.

Tom Berenger is the team’s catcher, Charlie Sheen a reliever, Corbin Bernsen the 3B and best of all, Bob Uecker is the radio announcer.

— Max Scherzer gets a World Series ring this year; he also got:
$15M from Washington
$36.6M from the Mets
$6.7M from the Rangers

$58.3M and a World Series ring; pretty good year.

— Over is 7-0 in LSU’s football games this fall.

— When was the last time Clemson/USC were home underdogs on the same day?

— Oklahoma plays Oklahoma State this week; with the Sooners bolting to the SEC, is this the last time these inter-state rivals will meet?

They’ve been playing since 1904, 117 times in all. Too bad $$$ intruded and ended one of the better rivalries in college football.

— Memphis Grizzlies are 0-5 this season; last time they were 0-5 was 2002.

I've been involved in sports my whole life, now just write about them. I like to travel, mostly to Las Vegas- they have gambling there.
