      • Oops, forgot to do the quiz! 17, only missed #2.
        I saw the A’s score, so I’m recording the Giants for later instead. Wish me luck!

        I think I forgot to send the following too. See a trend here? πŸ˜‚

        And I like the hair extensions…πŸ˜‰ ! Good luck with your game. I did really well with the Colts, and then gave some back because I was DUMB enough to go with the Jets..

      I wound up not watching anything yesterday except the last 2 minutes of the 49ers and Raiders games. Just couldn’t get interested after seeing the A’s score. Read the Sunday papers instead.

  2. Angela and Mike, there was a little history on the broadcast last night.
    The Giants have been showing big moments from their 60 years in SF. Last night, they showed a clip from Gaylord Perry’s no-hitter against Bob Gibson and the Cardinals on Sept. 17, 1968. What I didn’t know was what Duane Kuiper pointed out – he said the Giants celebrated so much that they were no-hit by the Cardinals the next day. From sabr.org – β€œThe very next day, the Cardinals returned the favor on the Giants on a 2–0 no-hitter by Ray Washburnβ€”the first time in Major League history that back-to-back no-hitters had been pitched in the same series.” πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

    • Steve…It’s far from over. Football? Health Insurance? Should be a given. Steven A is a voice of reason here…and there’ll be a lot said on both sides…Have you seen the meme going around of Eli after one of the sacks the other day? Supposed to be funny? …Not so funny…See that look on his face? What’re we looking forward to? Future HOF’s coming into the inductions in wheelchairs? Making speeches and slurring every third syllable? It needs to be addressed…and soon. But the NFL is a tough nut…Dickerson may have meant well, but who’s he bullying?

    • Good morning Angela – Quiz=10. Missed # 4, 8 and 9. Fun topic!

      My condolences on your NY sports night.

      Headlines about the A’s:
      EBT: β€œWhat a DEAL – 21” Chron: β€œA 21-run salute”

      Ann Killion on Twitter during the Facebook-only blowout – β€œPeople who are actually watching this on Facebook may think it’s a Russian hack job. It’s not.” πŸ˜‚

      One *extremely* odd moment while watching Sox/Yanks on
      MLB Network, especially since members of Traffic came up in our posts the other day.
      Bob Costas and Jim Kaat took opposite sides of some obscure point, and their director started playing Dave Mason’s β€œWe Just Disagree” and they both had a good laugh.

      I’ve caught myself a summer cold for the first time in ages, but I think I’m still headed to Peet’s and can still post later. Take care. πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ
