Apparently one of the reasons Alabama will stay at the top of the polls is that they never have to play Alabama. They are alone in that regard. Here is a great story about true freshman QB Jalen Hurt (with a lot of stuff about Auburn too).

To come from being down 3-1 is miraculous in and of itself. For the Cubs to do it in the way they did is just iconic and phenomenal. This might be the best story about the Cubs and their win that I read.
It was Epic. Magnificent. Spectacular. Historic. Stupendous. Just fucking AWESOME!
Ready for a dynasty? There’s always next year! Glad I got to share the experience with Sal and a bunch of Cubs faithful at a bar that was fully engaged.

First, we had Mitt “the Glove” Romney come out of the blue or from under whatever rock he has been hiding under for the last four years and give a speech that lambasted the republican front runner Donald Trump. And what a speech it was! He calls Trump, who was a big-time Romney backer four years ago, a fraud, a phony and a failed business man. Call him what you want, but I really don’t think Trump is an idiot or a failed businessman. Romney, actually advocated a contested convention by suggesting voters vote for Rubio in FL and Kasich in OH, should STFU and go back under his rock. Deep under. He did more damage to the party of Lincoln and Reagan in that speech than Trump has done in the entire campaign. Don’t they realize how horrific they come across? How stupid and petulant they sound? He is a failed candidate and the principal architect of Obamacare and no one really cares what he has to say anymore since he is no longer relevant. I was surprised he got so much press, but it was planned that way and I don’t think it really worked.
Then, the debate. Just wow. The thing devolved quickly into a shouting match and a “whose got the bigger dick” contest. I have concluded, after watching the debate and reading the reviews of it today, that John Kasich has the biggest schlong on that stage by a goodly margin. His balls must dwarf those of Ted “Don’t Call me Tom” Cruz and Marco “The Little Bot” Rubio. Kasich did not engage in silly personal attacks. He did not insult his opponents or make snide personal comments. He didn’t talk over the other debaters or the moderators. He was respectful and intelligent and offers real hope and good ideas. Kasich comes to the dance with nearly impeccable credentials. He doesn’t shout. He has real Head of State experience and serious cred in the national arena. He doesn’t act like a third grader who just got his favorite toy taken away by his diapered arch-rival in the sand box.
John Kasich would smoke Hilleroid Clinton in the general election in my opinion.
John Kasich is now my guy. Which puts me in the company of strange bedfellows since for Kasich to get the nod, he has to see a contested convention at this stage. Maybe Romney should give a few more speeches before returning to his very expensive hidey hole.
PS: Megyn Kelly is a goddess.

Tonight, the Chicago Blackhawks face off against the Tampa Bay Lightning for all of the glory in professional hockey.
When I grew up in Tampa, we didn’t know what hockey was, much less have a professional team in the Stanley Cup finals. Since relocating to Chicago in the mid-nineties, I have become a Blackhawks fan. After all, they have the best logo in sports. They are going for their third Stanley Cup in six years. Watching the Hawks with Sal and “fire-pitting” has been most enjoyable.
Should be entertaining. Go Hawks!
Also in Chicago sports this week, we have a new basketball coach for the Bulls. When introduced, Fred Hoiberg just repeated the phrase “say my name!”. The Bulls treated former coach Thibideau badly and could have shown more class. I liked Thibs. He took us to the playoffs every year since becoming the Bulls head coach. I would rather he be our coach than the opponents coach. I predict he ends up in New Orleans…
