NBA Update:

  • Nuggets nuke the Celtics with a huge 2nd quarter run, led by a very hot Jamaal Murray, and strong contributions from Gary Harris and Trey Lyles. If you go 9-1 in your first ten games and your in the West, you are definitely for real, and this what Boston found out (the painful way) tonight. #Celtics #Nuggets
  • Harden’s back, and looking like he hardly missed a beat; Houston noses out the Pacers. #Rockets #Pacers
  • Another impressive home win for the Clippers, who don’t seem to care that they’ve lost more of the star appeal; as for the Wolves, their problems on the road are very much for real. #Timberwolves #Clippers

NFL Update:

  • Tennessee comes into Cowboy country and imposes its will, grinding out a comfortable win by pitching a shut out in a well-executed 2nd half. For Jerry Jones, it is high time to take a hard look at what Dak lacks, and Jason’s complete inability to deliver anything resembling a Golden Fleece. If he can’t bring himself to make some changes, maybe he needs to hire someone who will, because brand equity is diminishing rapidly. #Titans #Cowboys

NFL Update:

  • Deshaun definitely had his game face on against a determined Denver, and the Texans needed all his fortitude to win this fight. That being said, the Texans must be thanking their lucky lone star, after a Bronco boot misses its mark as time runs out, leaving a two-point lead in tact. Time for everyone to recognize the fact that Houston is now firmly in control of the lowly AFC South. #Texans #Broncos
  • Rams’ veneer of invincibility is shattered by a Saints offense that was simply merciless. Every gap and cranny in LA’s secondary was exploited, and Gurley was largely kept under wraps. Now the question becomes … how to stop the Saints and their relentless attack? #Rams #Saints
  • Under-the-radar Chargers sink the Seahawks with an excellent first half, featuring some mesmerizing runs by Melvin and a typically on target Rivers. But despite everything, LAC’s defense nearly gave things away in the final minutes, with some foolhardy penalties and loose play. Better clean this up if you want to play with the big boys! #Chargers #Seahawks
  • Vikes were certainly psyched to see their divisional rivals wander into town, dropping Stafford with alarming regularity. However, it remains to be seen whether this team has what it takes to be considered a true contender. Their power rank notwithstanding, this confidence booster for fragile Kirk Cousins was much appreciated — and needed– in Minnesota. #Lions #Vikings
  • So much for Darnold being the QB gem of this year’s draft class. Dolphins now somehow find themselves sitting above .500 … and with two games left against the inept Bills (that is definitely money in the bank). #Dolphins #Jets
  • Steelers atone for home loss to the Baltimore birds by hunting their hated rivals down on the road, in a methodical 7-pt victory; the winning margin does not tell the complete story, as Pittsburgh was able to do what it wanted on offense and did a great job keeping the Ravens out of the end zone. This team is in a very good place right now in terms of achieving an effective balance between the run and pass and has made huge strides in eliminating the big play give-ups that plagued them earlier in the year. #Steelers #Ravens
  • It was over before it started in Landover, as, true to form, the recently prosperous Redskins played dead with a lame performance that makes their 5-3 record look pretty tenuous. Their o-line is falling apart and overall execution was clearly lacking, with penalties, turnovers and a non-existent running game. This gives the Eagles and Cowboys plenty of hope that the playoffs are still in play. #Falcons #Redskins
  • Something very offensive has caught on in Charlotte, and everyone’s tickled Carolina blue about it… including Cam Newton, who now see plenty of speed and athleticism around him when he settles under center. As for the Bucs, you could drive a truck through those gaping holes in the defense, it’s about time they acquired some stop lights. #Buccaneers #Panthers
  • Browns bow down to warrior Chiefs and their leader Mahomes, who look just fine away from home. #Chiefs #Browns
  • Bears spill the Bills for another huge loss, as the team that talent forgot is doing a good job keeping pace with the Raiders for the booby prize in the upcoming draft. #Bears #Bills
  • New England keeps plugging, and eventually lights up the Packers in a decisive 4th quarter; as usual, adjustments were made by the P-men, including ruthless misdirection and trickery against worn and torn GB defenders, who were only too willing to go for the fakes. #Patriots #Packers

NCAA Football Update, Week 9:

  • Fighting Irish threw the Book at smarty pants Wildcats,… and it worked. #FightingIrish #Wildcats
  • Pitt displays a punishing ground game in Cavalier country, and, lo and hold, stay near the top of the heap in the ACC. #Panthers #Cavaliers
  • In what could termed a shock, Tigers drain the Swamp with lots of Lock and Lockett. #Tigers #Gators
  • It wasn’t easy but Auburn avoids Armageddon with a last minute TD against the Aggies. #Aggies #Tigers
  • Dungey spells doomsday for the dejected Demon Deacons. #Orange #DemonDeacons
  • Huskers hang in like grim death against highly favored OSU, only to get denied at the finish by a bobbing and dodging Dobbins. #Cornhuskers #Bukeyes
  • It’s business as usual in Lawrence, as Purdy engineers a pretty easy win for the Cyclones at Kansas. #Cyclones #Jayhawks
  • Temple takes a tumble against the onrushing Knights. #Knights #Owls
  • Clemson uses its Lawrence styled Fridge Package to oxidize the Loserville Cardinals. #Cardinals #Tigers
  • The only thing dead in Death Valley tonight was Orgy’s very dull and life

NBA Update, Recap and Perspectives: Friday, 11-2-18 (click post for audio)

NBA Update:

  • The gradient of the learning curve is definitely challenging for the Rockets without being able to lean on Grady Harden; tonight, the formerly timid Rockets took a bold step in the right direction. #Rockets #Nets
  • Yes, there is still some hope for the ravaged Clippers, who pop their heads up above .500 with a big victory over fhe tragic Magic. Gallinari and Harris are solid players, and there’s always a chance Sweet Lou will have a pleasing game. #Clippers #Magic
  • Indiana continues to get nice contributions from Turner and Collison, which, along with an outstanding Oladipo, allows the Pacers to outlast the Bulls. #Pacers #Bulls
  • Wizards get torn asunder by the Thunder, who nearly shoot 50%. #Thunder #Wizards

NFL Update:
  • Raiders look like they are out there just killing time … so why do we have to watch them even on weekdays. Gruden can say whatever he wants to rationalize what happened out there tonight, but this may well be the absolute nadir in the annals of the Silver and Black. Back to the basics, guys, as you look like you forgot how to try, not to mention, execute. #Raiders #Niners

NBA Update:

  • Celts survive a true inside job by the Bucks, going with a lock and load strategy from long range. And the rest of the Eastern Conference had better take heed — Hayward’s starting to heat up. #Bucks #Celtics
  • When it came to gobbling up points and boards tonight, Embiid was the picture of greed, to the delight of his Philly fanatics. #Clippers #Sixers
  • There was a Fox in the Hawk-house tonight, and he caused quite a disturbance; Sac’s youth movement is starting to bear some serious fruit. #Kings #Hawks
  • Hornets look like bystanders watching a brush fire as Westbrook burns out of control in a deadly 4th q comeback started by the Thunder. #Thunder #Hornets

NBA Update:
  • Knicks get 30+ points from their guard the Hardaway, but Pacers come out on top when they get a 30 pt bonus from Sabonis. #Pacers #Knicks
  • Emerging heavyweight contender Nuggets manage to successfully slug it out in Chicago, with Millsap snapping the winning jab. #Nuggets #Bulls
  • Word has it that Minny won tonight because Rose rose to the challenge while Butler got a sorely needed benching. Problem is … Butler will be back for more this Friday against GSW. #Jazz #Timberwolves
  • LeBron bails the Lakers out after their latest 4th quarter failure; when the pace slows, their confidence really goes.  #Lakers #Mavericks

NBA Update:

  • Happy Halloween!  Beverly shows up in a Clippers jersey and proceeds to get under Westy’s skin even worse than when he was working in Houston.  Very scary. #Thunder #Clippers
  • Cavs more than double down on double digit scorers in fingering the Hawks as their first victim this season. #Hawks #Cavaliers
  • Kings enter the Magic castle, and impose their reign of recent terror with relative impunity. #Kings #Magic
  • Gaining Carmelo and losing Boss Baller hog James Harden is what can only be termed a raw deal; Rockets continue to explode on the runway to cap off an October that has definitely been a downer in H-town. #Trailblazers #Rockets
  • Scrappy Detroit simply can’t up with Kyrie, who leads the C’s to an imporant gut check victory. #PIstons #Celtics
  • The Wiz are usually in deep trouble on nights like this, where Wall is careless with the ball (9 TOs) and Bradley is shooting badly (5-16). Meanwhile, the baby blue Griz are confident about a good harvest after an extensive trip through the wilderness. #Wizards #Grizzlies

NFL Update, Recap and Perspectives: Sunday, 10-28-18 (click post for audio)

  • Even without LB, the Steelers are still the 800 lb gorilla in the AFC North, thanks to the reliable, productive days’ work put in by JC. With the exception of Q1, it was a very impressive bounce back performance by the Steelers, atoning for the Week 1 tie in Cleveland. #Browns #Steelers
  • Brees plays it cool, while this teammates pounce with precision on a few costly mistakes by the purple plunderers turned blunder boys. Vikings blow a big prime time chance to showcase their qualis as major contenders. With this game firmly in the rear view mirror, all indications are that they simply are not ready. #Vikings #Saints
  • In a game that had a little of everything, including a head scratching number of Socal cheeseheads on hand to greet their Packers, the Rams recover from some shoddy play from their o-line and some gaffes by Goff to take back control in the 3rd quarter and keep their perfect record in tact. #Packers #Rams
  • Finally, it can be said that Josh Rosen rose to the occasion; terrific comeback for the Cards, who now have something to build on. #FortyNiners #Cardinals
  • Colts trample the imposter Raiders, who to many, do not resemble a Gruden-coached squad; this year is clearly looking like a lame duck session for the quacks wearing silver and black. #Raiders #Colts
  • Lions lie down at home against seesawing Seattle, which is currently on a pronounced upswing. Stafford’s stutter steps have become way too predictable. #Seahawks #Lions
  • Redskins roll up their sleeves, and leave nothing to chance in a beat down of the downtrodden G-men at East Rutherford. With a solid running game, a physical, aggressive defense, and consistent performer at QB, it looks like sunny days ahead for the Sons of Washington. #Redskins #Giants
  • It’s a serious pandemic of passing yards, completions and points in Charlotte for a born again Panther offense, which has seemed to be continuous party mode since the return of All Pro tight end Greg Olsen. As for the Ravens, they’ve squandered what had been an front running position in their division with sloppy execution and a curious lapse in intensity. Time to wake up, what with Pittsburgh coming to town in Week 9. #Ravens #Panthers
  • Bears have no difficulty disassembling the stationary Jets, who seem to be sorely in need of some jumper cables. #Jets #Bears
  • You don’t need to have a Harvard education to know it’s the Harvard guy who should be behind center for the Bucs. Fitzy makes yet another strong statement about who is qualified to lead in Tampa, nearly leading his team back after Winston’s latest comedy of errors. Meanwhile, the Bengals survive at home and increase their win total to five. #Buccaneers #Bengals
  • Chiefs tame the Broncos, who cripple themselves with mental mistakes and simply can’t put the brakes on MVP candidate Mahomes. #Broncos #Chiefs
  • Jacksonville’s offense shows some life, but the Jags still lag on the scoreboard at their British home away from home. #Eagles #Jaguars

MLB Update, Recap and Perspectives (World Series, Game 5): Sunday, 10-28-18 (click post for audio)

MLB Update (World Series, Game 5):

  • Red Sox put the Doyyers to bed with an efficient whipping in Game 5. David Price creates his own legacy with another courageous performance, and journeyman Steve Pearce now has a permanent place in New England championship lore with his heroics at the place. And in a perfect ending, Chris Sale robs dirty Manny Machado of his machismo and manhood with a nastier than nasty slider. Boston now has two dynasties on its hands, as the Patriots have to move over and share the spotlight. We couldn’t be happier at ChabDog Sports Blog. CONGRATS ARE IN ORDER … FOREVER!!!

MLB Update (World Series, Game 4):

  • In a game where Boston’s big names were essentially silent, overlooked and perhaps underappreciated Holt, Moreland and Pearce stick their bats out and fiercely pierce the Dodgers’ bubble. And it’s no surprise fidgety Dave Roberts couldn’t leave well-enough alone and stopped Rich Hill’s one-hitter dead in its tracks. As for Jansen, how much more abuse can a closer take? #RedSox #Dodgers
