Hey, if Duncan can play goalie in the GEICO commercial, Tank can certainly play catcher for the Mets …

On the “Bribery Tutorial” edition of CDST (Part 1):

— Needed somebody to help us out re Fouts (w/regard to the HoF, yes, thankfully he’s in)
— Delving into the genesis of those Saturday Night nightmares
— OU vs. Baylor …. nice but not thrilling … and that Big 12 Sooner defense is not built for the BCS
— Clemson’s on a collision course with the Burrowing Machine (hey, Joe, watch out for Dabo)
— Speculating about the OSU halftime pep talk (was Eddie George or his photogenic mom involved?)
— A special song from Sir MIxalot with plenty of ifs, ands and butts … for my good friend Chuck (yes, the genre of men that this speaks to is still out there)
— Eric reiterates the importance of always keeping things in proportion
— Jalen Hurts returns to the spotlight with his fellow conquerors from Norman, and this is a good thing
— USC … must be bound for the Holiday Bowl… to play Penn St. (Eric our Bowlmaster take pains to so ordaines)
— A rather rude political interlude involving the supposed chiding of Biden by an 83 year old Wilfed Brimley impersonator (“You’re a damn liar, man, … that’s why I’m not sendentary, … and you want to check my shape on, let’s do push ups together …get your words straight, Jack, …look fat, here’s the deal…”)
— Nepotism in politics … it comes with the territory, but common sense dictates certain limits
— Never Trumper Nancy and the mantra of never hating

— Don’t make light of Lamar’s limp-wristed throwing style; it’s highly effective, especially when tossed to Chariots of Fire music (but ChabDog contends Maahk is off case with suggestions that the Baltimore QB plays for the pink team … sounds like there’s some projection going on)
— We break the bad news to Caruso that a Boston pro sports team finally lost at home (sorry Bruins)
— Unfortunately, there’s no breaking ground on some unfounded dirt to be unearthed re Malcolm Butler’s suspension for Super Bowl 52,,,, we’ll have to get the Sports e-cyclopedia to look into this … or maybe breakout the roofies laced with sodium pentothal
— Calling out Stevie Belichick for not really calling the plays for his daddy’s team

— Speculating about exactly who booked passage to Jeffrey Epstein’s island
— Backing into the Skins getting the points against Green Bay would have been a very gutless … and wise move
— Denver jackets have no business being on the body of any sport fan … when accompanied by a Patriots hat
— Yours truly correctly identifies Denver getting 9.5 as a lock over Houston in an obvious trap game

NFL Update, Recap and Perspectives, Sunday, 12-8-19:

As for the defending World Champs, their running game stinks, they have no speed at wide out, no Gronk and an offensive line in disarray; that being said, it’s not so bad, because “they’re moving on to Cincinnati”.

NFL Update:

— New England fans probably contend they got a raw deal (and they did) with a handful of blown calls that gave KC a big lift. All things considered, however, the victorious Chiefs should not walk away from this game feeling like thieves; they earned this win by doing excellent work on defense — stopping the Patriots’ running attack, and harassing Brady into numerous incompletions –and by dominating with Kelce, Watkins and their definite Mahomes field advantage. As for the defending World Champs, their running game stinks, they have no speed at wide out, no Gronk and an offensive line in disarray; that being said, it’s not so bad, because “they’re moving on to Cincinnati”. #Chiefs #Patriots
— Fickle officials decide it’s a nice day to give charity to the home standing Jets, resulting a time expiring game winner by Ficken. #Dolphins #Jets
— Texans let down their guard at home against the Broncs, blow the game and are threatened with being thrown out of sole possession of first in the AFC South, Lock, stock and barrel. #Broncos #Texans
— Seattle showed up for this Sunday night fight with frightfully little in its holster, getting a pretty tepid showing out of its main gun Wilson and allowing the Rams’ o-line to take control from the starting whistle. Not only has LAR been given new life, it seems to rediscovered the a bit of the chemistry that contributed so heavily to last year’s Super Bowl run. #Seahawks #Rams
— For whatever reason, they may’ve thought in J-ville there was at least a miniscule ray of hope with Minchew, but as in weeks past it was nothing put a pure drag to be a fan of the Jags. Chargers take out their frustrations .. and then some. #Chargers #Jaguars
— In quite a stunning development, the Titans have completed righted the ship, now that Tannehill has filled the role of field general and Marcus Mariota has gone the way of Wally Pipp. #Titans #Raiders
— Steelers parlay a super-efficient day from the Duck, along big plays on defense and … of all things … special teams to burn the Cards and return from the desert with a huge road win. #Steelers #Cardinals
— Tampa somehow continues to win with high risk, high reward Winston; Colts’ defense has lately gone very soft, and it looks like the bubble has indeed burst as regards their post-season possibilities. #Colts #Buccaneers
— Ravens win this in the trenches, executing on offense when they have to and shutting down a mostly moribund Buffalo attack; it is a shame that the Bills can find a QB with even a modicum of accuracy. #Ravens #Bills
Where there’s Ryan, there’s hope, and Falcons ruin the day for Fewell’s feeble Panthers with an all-around excellent effort at home. #Panthers #Falcons
— Saints can’t be happy with another home loss, this time to the high flying NIners; for those who had been impressed by stingy NO, think again. #FortyNiners #Saints
— Sullied Skins leave Green Bay typically frustrated yet again, after getting toyed with by the playful Packers and now a sad 3-10. #Redskins #Packers
— No problem in Minnesota, as strong Viking D has its way with the toothless D-troit Lions. #Lions #Vikings
— Bungles stay true to form by laying down in Brown town, but do manage to infuriate Vegas with a garbage time field goal that beats the spread … just barely. #Bengals #Browns
