MLB WS pre-game show, Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts complements A-Rod on J-Lo, comparing it to his homers, etc.

A-Rod responds: "I've overachieved in everything I've done in life, this is no exception." :lol:

The NFL has chosen to honor one of Minnesota’s greatest exports, Ely-born Jessica Biel, by announcing that her husband will be performing at the Super Bowl 52 halftime show in Minneapolis next February.

For months, we people of the Bold North have been speculating about how the league would celebrate our unique character. The nod to Biel, who tops IMDB’s list of “Most Popular People Born in Ely/ Minnesota /USA,” is a nice touch.

True, Biel’s family moved to a lesser state when she was young, but once a Minnesotan, always a Minnesotan. Also, she bought a Valentine’s Day card from a store on Nicollet as recently as 2014.

Though he’s known for dating non-Minnesotan stars such as Britney Spears and Cameron Diaz before he was lucky enough to wed an Iron Range gal, Biel’s husband Justin Timberlake isn’t just celebrity arm candy. He has an acting career (yes, that was him providing the voice of Boo Boo in the 2010 film Yogi Bear), and anyone who's performed with both Jimmy Fallon and the Black Eyed Peas clearly must have some singing talent -- or at least a great agent.

Really? This topic used to be about actual sports stuff until you showed up. :roll:



If you think my post is off-topic, you can report it. If a mod agrees, it will be moved or removed; if not, it won't.

Or ... you can get a sense of humor, and realize that the article cited was about the Super Bowl (sports!) and was supposed to be funny. :roll:

Getting back to sports, here's an interesting discussion of last night's game in the context of the new advanced stats dictating strategy, which one team followed while the other did not:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/a ... d76d9a628d


Sorry, just getting back to this. That night I noticed someone had posted an in-game World Series update in the "Drivel" thread, and your drivel was posted in this one. Nothing worth reporting to the mods, of course.

If anyone here is interested in actual sports ... how about this game 4! 1-1 going into the ninth!

Well, the Dodgers took that one in the 9th. 2-2 and they have Kershaw starting the last game in Houston. Big turn in this Series, which is shaping up to be an epic one.

I hink it was 7. They set the single-game record with 8 earlier in this series, and they've now set the record for most in an entire world series with at least 1 game to go.

Naturally, this World Series had to go 7 games. Predictions? Another HR derby game, or a low-scoring pitcher's duel like game 6? Who wins?

(No fair answering this after the game. :lol: )

Well, we are liking how it's going so far. Going to be a very different game with the starting pitching maybe relieving.

Go Astros!

So I just watched Oklahoma beat Oklahoma State 62 to 52. No, not on the basketball court but on the football field. Defense was not an option today.

Kind of odd that Green Bay put Marty on injured reserve with a concussion supposedly so bad that it might jeopardize his season now all of the sudden he's back with the Pats practicing with the team. Just more shady dealings coming out of New Beanland.

I thought it was Bennett's shoulder that was injured, GB's Dr wanted him to play but Bennett got 3 second opinions that all said surgery was needed. Now I heard all this on a Boston sports radio program today, also Bennett tweeted that this was most likely his last season, he seemed to loose interest when Rodger's went down but miraculously Bennett was at Patriot's practice today and may suit up for Sunday :duck: "Shady" dealings from NE, how's that? GB put him on waivers, NE made an offer, any other team could have also, can't blame Bennett for wanting to play for a winning franchise and TB12.

Well, this was office rumor sports talk on Friday and if Bennetts injury is just a shoulder and not a concussion as reported by my co-worker than that was an uninformed, erroneous post on my part. Being a long time football fan I used to follow what has been going on around the NFL and college levels but this year have not followed closely or even at all the last few weeks which obviously has affected my BS Pick'em this season... :lol:
