MLB Update:

  • Sweet revenge for the Doyyers, who dampen the usual euphoria at Busch. Time for a few more Budweisers. #Dodgers #Cardinals
  • A’s go down hard at Camden Yards, and it may be time to focus on winning home field for the duel of AL wild cards. #Athletics #Orioles
  • Cubbies win another squeaker and inch closer to a divisional title, winning tonight with a meek bunt single by Baez. #Cubs #Nationals
  • With this talented bunch of hitters and a little bit of pitching, things to do in Denver this October may include going to a baseball game. #Diamondbacks #Rockies

MLB Update:

  • Padres continue their mission of ensuring the Mariners never see the post-season. #Padres #Mariners
  • Indian bats put to sleep today by Snelling salts. #Indians #Rays
  • If the Cubs aren’t careful, they may find themselves on the outside looking in when the playoffs begin; tonight was another muff against tenacious Milwaukee. #Brewers #Cubs
  • In Boston, they’re praying this year there’s a happier ending than the finish in ’46 when Pesky held the ball. #RedSox #BlueJays
  • Pirates take pride in being a bit of a thorn in the Cardinals’ side. #Pirates #Cardinals

MLB Update:

  • Finally, we’re at 100%, not 99.99… what a relief…#RedSox #BlueJays
  • Quintana throws the Cubbies a life line, keeping them from sinking into second place quicksand. #Brewers #Cubs
  • Pirates find out that Redbirds are a lot harder to push around than the Reds. #Pirates #Cardinals
  • Astros push aside the pussycats. #Astros #Tigers
  • With their sputtering offense, there’s not much solace the Dodgers can take in their current position, just a smidge out of first. #Dodgers #Reds

NFL Update, Recap and Perspectives: Sunday, 9-9-18 (click post for audio)


NFL Update:

  • Florida already has the 24 hours of Daytona; now it also has 7 hours at South Beach. The fans that waited out this marathon were rewarded with a hard fought Miami victory. #Titans #Dolphins
  • On the road, KC unveils its Mahomes field advantage; Chiefs continue to own the Chargers. #Chiefs #Chargers
  • Broncs weren’t exactly moving like a well-oiled machine, but Case Keenum did just enough, and there was trusty Von Miller there to do the heavy lifting. #Broncos #Seahawks
  • Alex moves from one tribe to the next pretty seamlessly, and Adrian showed some of his old flash, enabling Washington to thump Arizona. Time to panic in Phoenix? Sam Bradford does not seem to be the answer. #Redskins #Cardinals
  • The Dallas offense featuring lots of Cole Beasley … and not much of anything else … is looking positively beastly (in a bad way) these days, and with cool hand Luke getting his hands on everyone and Prescott getting constantly reeled in by the Short arm of the law it was certainly a long, long day for the Cowboys in Charlotte. #Cowboys #Panthers
  • NE stands pat on tried and true formula of Brady-Gronk combined with enough Texan turbulence to get the Patriots off to their usual 1-0 start. #Patriots #Texans
  • Kirk shows up for work, but the difference was the purple people eaters’ ability to get Garoppolo in their grips. Sorry, no griping allowed, Jimmy. #FortyNiners #Vikings
  • So much for the Saints’ new and improved defense … Fitzy gives them fits with a prolific day, and maybe it’s a good thing that famous Jameis stayed away. #Buccaneers #Saints
  • Ravens were rearing and ready to go when the season started, while the pathetic Bills were resigned to starting their Peterman QB (from Seinfeld?). #Bills #Ravens
  • Jags picks up where they left off from last year, with great, opportunistic D and just enough offense from BB. #Jaguars #Giants
  • Give the Bengals credit for showing up big time in the Colts’ corral, including a great play from Clayton to seal the game. #Bengals #Colts
  • Steelers are fortunate to emerge with a 21-21 tie against the Browns, as Ben makes too many mistakes and the team suffers when it taps into the Boswell well one too many times. Oh well. On the bright side, James Conner goes for 130. #Steelers #Browns
  • An injured, laboring Rodgers picks himself off the deck in the 4th quarter and tell the Bears, “Not in my neighborhood!”.

US Open Men’s Singles Update (Finals) (click for audio):

US Open Men’s Singles Update:

  • Now that he’s again conquered the US Open, Novak knows that he’s back on top. There’s nobody out there built to outlast the incredibly flexible, yet sturdy Serb. Today, he had all the answers on defense, and was better able to attack on his own terms than his stalwart, but ultimately outgunned, challenger.

NCAA Football Update, Week 2 (click for audio):

NCAA Football Update:

  • A bit of a sloppy game by Clemson, but it ultimately doesn’t bite the Tigers where it hurts too much as the reigning ACC Champs manufacture a big road win at College Station
  • Trojans never get going against scheming Stanford. #Trojans #Cardinal
  • They made some decent money, but the Red Wolves also got tagged with a serious beating by Tagovailoa and his Crimson Tide. #RedWolves #CrimsonTide
  • Another swift kick in the gut for Rutgers…#ScarletKnights #Buckeyes
  • Ducks have their true cupcake moment against Portland State. How delicious. #Vikings #Ducks
  • Nary a chance for William & Mary, who seemed (and were) completely out of their league against Va Tech. #Hokies #Tribe
  • Okla chokes the life outta UCLA, with very little resistance. Yes, the Bruin football program is in near ruins. #Bruins #Sooners
  • Big bad Badgers push around Lobos with their lethal, Taylor-made attack … through the air and, of course, on the ground. #Lobos #Badgers
  • Wolverines do their best to pull the wool over their eyes and forget about last week’s disappointment by trampling Western Michigan. #Broncos #Wolverines
  • Penn St. sets rival Pitt straight #NIttanyLions #Panthers

US Open Women’s Singles Update (Finals) (click for audio):

US Open Women’s Singles Update:

  • Not so serene Serena gets bounced by a very worthy champion Osaka. Although calling the umpire a thief doesn’t seem like a hanging offense, her tone, combined with smashing her racket on the ground hard enough to destroy a Chase ATM, as well as the prior infractions resulted in a penalty that was arguably justified under the circumstances.  There’s a bit of an anger management issue that has never been addressed, and in her press conference there was really no acknowledgement that she had handled things badly, not to mention any apology.

MLB Update:

  • Houston comes back to Boston and strangles the Red Sox, just like they did last October. #Astros #RedSox
  • He may only be hitting .245, but with these power nos. (25 hr, 86 rbis) Hoskins is still a hot shot. #Phillies #Mets
  • Are the Cards tiring, or just nesting? #Cardinals #Tigers
  • PIrates hit the Marlins with a winning blow from Luplow; someone forget to tell these guys that they’re out of it … aren’t they?

MLB Update:

  • Cubs pull yet another victory out of their hairy arses falling back on what else, Bote memory. #Cubs #Nationals
  • Mejia leads a violent Padre jihad against who else, the Reds. #Padres #Reds
  • Wake all of us up when the Indians clinch the AL Comedy Central; if only this season Indian dominance interesting enough to laugh at…#Indians #BlueJays

ChabDog goes Loco Moco at The Grindz (arriba arriba)

Try the Loco Moco at The Grindz — it’s insanely good.  This looks like a lot of food, but my date with this plate was a pleasure cruise.

There was a plethora of delicious gravy, that finds a home amid lots of fluffy white rice.  I went for my two eggs over semi-easy, and the combo of yolk and grilled hamburger patties was wicked good.

And as always, I saved the creamy mac salad for last.

Thank you Grindz, for another memorable lunch!

MLB Update:

  • Brandon saves Boston; how appropriate. #RedSox #Braves
  • Cubbies finally put their paws down, stomping out Brewer thoughts of breathing down their necks with that bad breath. #Cubs #Brewers
  • Mets go to smell-A and end up being real spoilers. #Dodgers #Mets
  • Buccos get the sweep, while Homer goes down once again … this time on the road. #Reds #Pirates
