Spooky's are you ready for some Football Thirsty Thursday Six Pack....
-- Five years ago, Clint Hurdle led the Rockies to the World Series; now he is leading the Pirates to their first playoff berth in 21 years. Let me think; someone who leads those teams to the playoffs is a damn good manager.
-- Serious question I wish someone would ask Rex Ryan: How long a leash does Geno Smith have in Sunday's game? Is there a chance Matt Simms would get the nod to come in off the bench?
-- Patriots’ first three games, they oppose these three QBs: EJ Manuel, Geno Smith, Josh Freeman; the first two make Freeman look like Dan Marino. New England plays at Atlanta/at Cincinnati in Weeks 4-5, but hard to believe they’re not jogging to another division title, with two of their three division rivals totally crippled at quarterback.
-- You have to check out You Tube or plays of the week for the fantastic catch Josh Donaldson made Tuesday night on a foul ball by the tarp in Oakland. He catches the ball and disappears between the trap and the stands, with only his glove showing, with the ball in it. Tremendous play.
-- I’m told that when you’re on jury duty, you have to turn in your cellphone while court is in session. Um, no thanks. When was last time I was awake for 3-4 hours straight without looking at my phone?
-- Georgia’s Malcolm Mitchell blew out his knee giving his teammate a leaping chest bump after a TD Saturday at Clemson; wonder how many HS/college coaches around the country have banned the leaping chest bump? Somewhere, former Arizona Cardinal kicker Bill Gramatica (who ruined NFL career by doing same thing) is nodding his head sadly.
-- L'shana Tova to the Spooky Express and BTB family and friends.
