— It was 1973 … the year of the Yom Kippur War
— Hindsight is 2020 … but when they look back on this mess they will still be incredulous
— Ok, let’s all be quiet and Notre Dame enjoy its cupcake in South Florida … and too bad one won’t be In The Navy this year
— Anybody notice that nobody’s clambering for the return of the Pac 16….imagine that
— Frank introduces us to the song that was the Russian National Anthem before the Russian National Anthem (“Give up all your possessions…”)
— Why Presidents like to exercise their powers to the bitter end of their terms
— ChabDog’s stream of consciousness summation of yesterday’s CFAA action, including Miami taking down Louisville, NC St. surviving a Wake (barely), and a very sluggish OK State.
— Since when did Jimmy Johnson cultivate the Martha Ford look. Has me thinking about Thanksgiving and those gizzard necks.
— Darn if those hopeless Browns take little initiate to stop the deadly backdoor cover.
— Tank is the center of attention of Barstool Pro Football Show, and gets squeezes out of a sticky situation with Prime Time. (“There’s no way he can get in the chair. No way.”)
— Stevie Wonder meets the Angry Mets Fan in a weird rendition of “Back-door Cover”
— Some us just refuse to believe that the winner of this year’s Cup is written in the Stars.
— Putting $10 on it is just not that taxing.
— Mike Francesca … the original mush
— Fleming’s true confessions — a very reliable NBA reverse barometer… picking the Pacers to beat the Heat (anytime), picking the Bucks and the Heat at exactly the wrong times, and getting the winners of the Celtics/Raptors and Celtics/Heat almost completely mixed up. Frank, please, bet on the Lakers

— Guess who’s burning the oil with Frankie Midnight… Neon Deon
— Is Miami a level jumper? Buffalo had better beware.
— Why Rod Rust was such a bust … as a head coach.
— Understanding what parts of former Jags are sprinkled generously around the rest of the league
— Time for the referee to intervene and enforce a modicum of airtime ethics
— The final Confrontation between NY Metro Area and Saugus/Springfield
— “You’re rude, crude and lewd.” Who said that?
— “Texas outright winners over the Ravens?” Did I hear that right?


ChabDog’s NHL Update, Recap and Perspectives (Playoffs, Round 2) — September 4:

ChabDog’s NHL Update:

  • Give that man Kivaranta a Fanta. Fantastic hat trick puts Stars into the Western Conference Final and in need of a new sparring partner. Tough break for the Avs, who played some excellent hockey in their own right, but never seemed to get the action in their own end under control in any meaningful way. #Avalanche #Stars
  • It took forever, but the Knights finally lit that net pilot light up enough to tip toe for good past Demko. #Canucks #GoldenKnights

ChabDog’s NHL Update, Recap and Perspectives (Playoffs, Round 2) — September 1:

ChabDog’s NHL Update:

  • All hail Thatcher the puck catcher. Canucks don’t cooperate by going quietly, and force a 6th game on the noticeably temperamental and possibly fragile Golden Knghts. #Canucks #GoldenKnight
  • Philly finally figures out how to fill up the goal, courtesy of Dutch master van Riemsdyk and a French connection by hard shooting Claude Giroux. #Flyers #Islanders

ChabDog’s NHL Update, Recap and Perspectives (Playoffs, Round 2) — August 30:

ChabDog’s NHL Update:

  • Startled Avs bend to the will of Benn’s Stars and are on the verge of melting away.
    #Stars #Avalanche
  • Upstart Isles on the verge of gaining their Philadelphia freedom. This is making quite a hit in Longiland. #Flyers #Islanders
  • Van had better man up,… because they’re down 2 with 3 to go (at best). #Canucks #GoldenKnights

ChabDog’s NHL Update, Recap and Perspectives (Playoffs, Round 2) — August 26:

ChabDog’s NHL Update:

  • Avs flirt with disaster, blowing a 3-1 3rd period advantage, before catching their breath for a furious final rush that buried dangerous Dallas. Colorado’s rediscovery of crisp shooting and hustle as made this a competitive tussle. #Avalanche #Stars
  • Myers revs up the Flyer tires, and Philly avoids an 0-2 rut with a gritty victory in OT. This series has all the hallmarks of a 7-game scuffle. #Flyers #Islanders
  • Bay of Pigs tonight for the Bruins, who get blown away by the puck wizardry of Kucherov, not Khrushchev; Boston had better get its act together for Game 4. Too many penalties, shoddy penalty killing and weak goalie play are among the chief causes of concern for the defending Eastern Conference Champs. #Bruins #Lightning

ChabDog’s NHL Update, Recap and Perspectives (Playoffs, Round 1) — August 20:


ChabDog’s NHL Update:

  • Isles are all smiles, when Beauvillier turns Capital killer. Boy was this series a washout for weak-willed Washington. #Capitals #Islanders
  • Stars’ record this year is nothing to write home about, but you can bet nobody wants to play them. Calgary goes down easy in Game 6, ground up quite efficiently by Pavelski, the Zamboni, who covered a lot of ground and was a thorny problem in the Flame’s frame the whole night. #Flames #Stars
