Is a 9-0 Jaguars victory over the Steelers exciting? No. Moving on.
Without a doubt, Maurice Clarett broke the law. Robbery and concealed weapons charges were brought against him and Clarett plea bargained for 3.5 years in jail. Let me be the first to say, I am guaranteeing Clarett with lead the NFL in rushing yards during the 2011 season. Most running backs peak in their late 20s and Clarett will be no different. In fact, he will be better. What else is there for him to do but lift and defend his backside? Plus, in prison I'm sure he will get the guidance, discipline, education and leadership skills to excel in the real world. Isn't that what prison is all about?.. Just seeing if you are awake this morning. He's done.
As the White Sox continues to drift out of the playoff race, the NL West is doing whatever it can to get noticed. The Dodgers and Padres played last night in perhaps the greatest game of the season (if you are a Dodgers fan). The Dodgers were down 5-9 in the bottom of the ninth inning. Seven pitches later it was 9-9. Four solo home runs pushed the game into extra innings, were the Padres then took a 10-9 lead. With one on, bottom of the 10th NOMAR hit a two-run homer. Game Over. The Dodgers now have a one-game lead over the Padres and the Padres have a 1.5 game lead over the Phillies for the Wild Card.
I watched the first episode of "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip." It is now in my top three for Tivo'd Season Pass (behind "Lost" and "Grey's Anatomy"). And it's not because I have been watching SNL for 20 years, and it's not because Aaron Sorkin's previous shows "Sports Night" is one of my all-time favorites, and it's not because Amanda Peet is dead sexy ... Oh wait, yes, it's all those reasons. Matthew Perry and his odd looking chin is on the show as well. Watch it. You can click here to watch the full episode or a two-minute recap.
