Thursday Night Football was actually sort of entertaining
For a game that did not seem good to begin and was a two-score game late in the 4th quarter, Thursday Night Football managed to provide some entertainment. Carson Wentz was able to lead the Eagles to a victory over the New York Giants and that was impressive. For as much fun as that was, Giants quarterback Daniel Jones got a ton of attention for his 80-yard run.
Jones’ run was incredible and seemingly came out of nowhere. Unfortunately the turf monster got him and tripped him up before he could score a touchdown.
This run was the fastest by a quarterback since 2018.
Of course the internet had some fun with Jones’ run.
The music from The Price is Right game Cliffhangers was added in a reply.
Former NBA Seattle SuperSonics star Shawn Kemp is opening a dispensary in Seattle and is going with the most straight forward name possible, Shawn Kemp’s Cannabis. The name is pretty much to the point and incredibly boring. Missing the opportunity to go with a name like Sonic Chronic is incredibly disappointing.
World Series Game 3 Tonight
The Tampa Bay Rays and Los Angeles Dodgers will square off in Game 3 of the World Series Friday night, each team having 1 win each. Tampa was able to come out on top and get a much needed win Wednesday with the Dodgers used a bullpen approach, a strategy that is more synonymous with Tampa than Los Angeles. While it seems simplistic to and casual to say winning a World Series game is a “must win”, it’s about the pitching matchups. Tyler Glasnow and Blake Snell pitched the first two games setting up “Ground Chuck” himself Charlie Morton for Game 3. Not coming away with a win in one of the first two games could have sank the Rays before Morton even made an appearance.
Tampa is now in position to take a possible 2-1 lead in the series before the games really begin with their pitching staff as Tampa’s starters for Games 4 and 5 are TBD. Los Angeles is favored (as they should be), but Tampa showed in Game 2 that they are more than capable of defeating the almighty Dodgers.
