It is not possible to be completely miserable (or happy) during the time of sports demarcation
There’s 17 trillion things going on in sports right now, and I wanted to keep you updated on all the progress of the NBA and NHL opening weeks, the MLB rounds that determine the World Series, the odds. College Football League’s knockout division and every NFL, EPL, MMA, boxing, game, competition, and head-to-head game in between, will not be able to talk about it in full or through in less than 5,000 words.
Honestly, if you can’t find happiness in a loss to the Yankees, Longhorns or 76ers, perhaps a win by the Ducks, the Tigers, the Celtics, the Blues or the Man City will lift your mood. brighter. The Phillies-Padres NLCS had 17 different types of drunkenness, and they kept throwing hay. Sports can often be frustrating and/or monotonous, and just opening the schedule is frustrating. But it’s really hard to get angry (or excited) during times like late October and into November.
Combine that with sold-out buildings, arenas, stadiums and football fields, carefree and hopefully COVID-free, and you can’t hate the entire 60 Minutes of Sportscenter. You can be optimistic about the Giants, Cowboys, Blazers, Nittany Lions or Penguins to make up for your misery against Liverpool, Nebraska, Lakers, Rams and Bears. Perhaps you haven’t been excited about Volunteers, Eagles, Trojans, or Jets in a decade or more (or less).
We’ve all had a few extra heart palpitations after a stroke, aneurysm, and/or panic/heart attack with beats that keep going up, down, bouncing in favor, poor grades, and periods of stress. shadow. The NBA League Pass testing is still ongoing, and so are the CFP’s hopes of Georgia, Clemson and Alabama.
I don’t know who dubbed it the sports division. I just think this time of year is a sports fan’s little secret, like that Nutty Buddy affair you bought at the gas station and inhaled in your car that only the valet would know. keep that secret.

So, in the spirit of disregarding our collective shame, I will (try to) run down as quickly as possible.
Be prepared to root for the Astros or Phillies in the World Series
The nightmare continues for Yankees fans when asserting that karma is on their side against MLB villain Houston. New York was empty-handed, winning only three shots in a 5-0 loss, and now faces a 3-0 series loss.
The Phillies were a win in the World Series itself and their 3-1 lead also looked secure. San Diego took a 4-3 lead in the fourth and then 6-4 in the fifth, eventually falling 10-6. Rhys Hoskins hit a double, four-ball, and Kyle Schwarber and Bryce Harper continued their tit-for-tat, combining for four balls and three RBIs.
Three less undefeated college football teams
Even though this weekend will never live up to what happened to men Week 8, three schools in the top 15, the previously unbeaten schools had the first cons. No. 7 Ole Miss, No. 9 UCLA, and No. 14 Syracuse all lost. Clemson had to sit on DJ Uiagalelei’s bench to get past the Orangemen, Brian Kelly showed Lane Kiffin how to wear visors, and Chip Kelly and Dorian Thompson-Robinson are yet to beat Oregon in their time as the Bruins .
Ohio State, Tennessee and TCU are the other perfect Power Five teams in action, and they continue their victories, with only the Horned Frogs being “tested”.
Three NBA superstars scored 40 points or more, but lost only one
It’s too early to overreact to the NBA, so read what comes next for how many grains of salt you need. Jayson Tatum, Giannis Antetokunmpo, and Joel Embiid all have monster nights. They had a total of 45 to 67 from the floor with 124 points. Boston, Philly, and Milwaukee have a cumulative 5-3, but if you subtract the Sixers from the equation, it’s 5-0.
That’s right. The 76ers are indecisive. They also played against the Bucks and Celtics the first two games of the year, but losing to San Antonio at home is alarming. Thankfully, Brotherly Love City was too busy for the Phillies to notice. By the way, the boy’s father James Harden had 12 points out of 4/18 from the field.
