Because sports should never run your life ... retorts for sports

MLB Update, Recap and Perspectives: Saturday, 7-21-18 (click post for audio)

MLB Update:
  • Is this for real? Don’t tease us again Pittsburgh; in any event, when it comes to hitting, I swear this Dickerson kid’s really not dicking around. #Pirates #Reds
  • D-backs continue to backtrack, while Rockies are scaling the heights of the ultra-competitive, and ultra-bourgeois NL West.
  • Lethargic Texas is starting the 2nd half, just like it started the 1st half, stuck in the mud. #Rangers #Indians
  • Cards and Carpenter continue to fiddle and diddle with the Cubs, with both teams accomplishing essentially nothing in a kiss-your-sister split. #Cardinals #Cubs
  • After a long layover, and hangover, the Brewers finally wake up and smell the coffee. #Dodgers #Brewers
  • Stroman was quite the showman in showing up the Orioles; speaking of shows, maybe it’s time somebody showed Showalter the door … this is just plain embarrassing. #Orioles #BlueJays
  • Led by Fiers, a fired up Detroit finally holds Boston’s feet to the fire. #Tigers #RedSox

MLB Update:

  • WAS was looking like a has been, what with fragile Strasburg getting ore than his feathers ruffled and Mad Max not very muffled. #Braves #Nationals
  • Friday night fever for Frisco’s Fu fighter. Go Panda, go! #Giants #Athletics
  • One cool Duda makes all the difference in the world for the Royals. #Twins #Royals
  • Price was throwing the pill that was making the Tigers pretty ill, as the Red Sox roll, 1 to nil. #RedSox #Tigers
  • Carlos Santana makes sure the Phils take his advice about “Winning” with a game changing performance tonight… and he doesn’t intend to let them lose again. #Padres #Phillies
  • With practically nothing to gain and playing with the Wilponsies’ money, Cespy and the Mets give the Yankees another kick in the teeth. #Mets #Yankees
  • Cardinal ire peaked with ChabDog’s recent critique, and havoc is what they wreak with an end-of-workweek drubbing of Cub pitching. #Cardinals #Cubs
  • Indians bid good riddance to the Rangers, while PIrates end up way ahead of the Reds.

British Open Update: Round One


British Open Update:

  • The Open opens with Mr. Kis taking care of biz, while Tiger paces in place at even par.
  • Rory smells the flowers but is still within smelling distance of the lead.
  • Right now, Henley is one the boys of Summer on Carnoustie who looks like he won’t be gone come cut time.
  • Dustin looks rusty and Padraig gets paddled.

Second half flashbacks by a tortured Red Sox fan:
1) The barfarama that was the 2011 collapse involving Papelbon and fried chicken in the clubhouse
2) Bucky @#$#@ing Dent
3) Aaron #@$#%ing Boone
4) Being 14 games up in 1978 and finishing second
5) Grady Little’s slow hook when it came to Pedro
6) Joe McCarthy obsessively overusing Kinder and Parnell

MLB Update:

  • After leading the NL Central for most of the year, the Brew Crew has lately made quite a mess of things, dropping a 5th straight to the happily surprised Buccos. #Pirates #Brewers
  • Right after KC was feeling a little good about itself, the White Sox let loose with a Royal flogging. #Royals #WhiteSox
  • Yanks stumble into the break, apparently apathetic about catching the Red Sox, and will need to refocus and retool if they hope to challenge for the AL East title. Sketchy relief pitching seems to be a true Achilles heel for this team. #Yankees #Indians
  • Dormant Daniel Murphy resurfaces to heap more pain and misery on the doormat Mets. #Nationals #Mets
  • Red Sox strong arm their way past Toronto, with good work from Workman and a host of other relievers; Red Sox nation continues to hold its breath, in anticipation of the stretch run to come. #BlueJays #RedSox

World Cupdate 2018: Day 24 (click post for audio)

World Cupdate 2018:

  • Though they showed up dressed for a picnic, it was anything but that for the hard working, red checkered Croatians, who get doubled-up 4-2 by Les Bleus and have to settle for second. With all this speed and youth, France may well be back on top in less than a generation. Toutes nos félicitations!

Wimbledon 2018 Update:

  • Lanky Kevin Anderson comes up short in a grand slam final once again, sputtering badly at the start with too many shanks and giving his experienced and opportunistic opponent a pretty comfortable cushion. No way you can get away with that against Novak, who sweeps in 3 straight and now is in the teens with majors.

Wimbledon 2018 Update:

  • Serena had the baby, but it was Kerber who delivered. In a abrupt turn of events, Serena looked unsure of herself, out of condition and off kilter, while the German was poised, and chasing down everything like a demon. Now Angelique has built hall of fame credentials of her own, and only needs the French to claim a career grand slam.

Wimbledon 2018 Update:

  • Novak continues to defy the doubters, beating Nadal in a counter-punch classic. Perhaps more significant, were his 20+ aces, which he’ll need in his arsenal against the slamming South African in the final. Regardless of the result tomorrow, putting down the wildly competitive Nadal will be something to remember forever.

MLB Update (click above to hear new ChabDog Sports Talk Show opening):

  • It was bound to happen at some point … Rua ruins Orioles’ hopes to emerge from their funk with a huge plunk. #Rangers #Orioles
  • Red Sox brought down to earth when Porcello decides to throw marshmallows. #RedSox #BlueJays
  • Battling Buccos aren’t about to give up, and this is amply reflected in Bell continuing to answer that proverbial Bell. Great job today Josh! #Brewers #Pirates
  • Even if they’re called the Mets, no team with Noah and deGrom should ever lose 100 games. That just can’t happen, can it? #Nationals #Mets
  • Yanks’ 9th inning rally is stifled when Didi is retired … without a gold watch. #Yankees #Indians
  • Enough is enough … Reds motor by their historic tormentors the Cards on the power of their little Scooter, destructive Dilson, and big boy Matt Harvey. #Reds #Cardinals

Wimbledon 2018 Update (and click above to hear new ChabDog Sports Talk Show opening from Well-read Productions):

  • Big win goes to the 6 ft 8 “little guy”, in a titanic clash on Centre Court. Isner brought everything he had to this one, but Anderson dug deeper, and knocked on the door until he finally kicked it open. His reward — another golden opportunity for SA’s Golden Boy to win that elusive major. Amazing heart on display today, by both players. This was a match for the ages, and that’s no tall tale!

Having only a so so day, treat yourself to lunch at Original Rinaldis, ….

with The Rachel:

Once I took these pictures, this masterpiece didn’t last long on the plate…. melted swiss, atop a generous portion or perfectly cooked and juicy corned beef, along with tasty coleslaw and plenty of Thousand Island dressing.  Sandwiched between toasted rye… that’s better than nice … that’s a wild party for your taste buds.   And don’t forget the mac salad and T & T sauce.

I want another…
