SportsFilter: The Saturday Huddle

The transitive property from my schoolboy days is alive and well in the NBA.

The Magic, having learned the finer points of hand to hand combat from the Malicemeister Pistons in a melee a few weeks ago, carried their newly acquired skills and know how into yesterday's massive brawl with the Timberwolves.

Now it's the Wolves' turn to pay the love forward. They play the Grizzlies next Friday.

Tom Brady Retires from Football

The New York Times has reported Tom Brady's re-retirement by marking up last year's story with insertions and deletions.

Tom Brady Retires from Football

The nerve of the guy, interrupting the national two weeks of gushing over the Kelce brothers and Mahomes. Tom and Sean Payton should be ashamed of themselves.

I feel bad for the sports yakkers who had started revving up all the musical chairs possibilities of a Niners QB chart that included Brady, Lance, Groppo and Purdy. San Fran is now down to three guys. (I say keep em all, you're gonna need them and you'll still have to bring in a Colt McCoy to get through the entire season).

I hope Brady is not annoying in the broadcast booth. I have enjoyed the playoffs much more this year with the greatly reduced presence of Joe Buck.

Now, Tom and ex-wife Gisele can start a personal alms race to see who can coin more moolah in separation. And we'll be treated to a string of non-sports related sightings of them stepping out on the town with hotties half their age.

I remember him flying down the right wing, getting about 5 or 10 feet inside the blue line, and letting go his thundering slap shot. It was on net more often than not, and might well have led to a career change decision by more than a few goaltenders. Bruins swept the Blackhawks in the 1970 Stanley Cup semifinals, largely due to an incredible defensive performance on Hull by Eddie Westfall. The story was that after the final game of the series, Hull had to peel Westfall off of his sweater before he could shower.

Perhaps I shouldn't speak of one of Hull's defeats, but perhaps he was at his best at those times. Outside TD Garden in Boston is a statue of Bobby Orr, flying through the air after scoring the goal against St. Louis that won the cup for Bruins. I walk by it on the way into the Celtics games I attend, and now I have someone else to honor.

Super Bowl 0x39: Chiefs vs. Eagles

I can't believe Mahomes was able to run like that on his sprained ankle and lead Joseph Ossai into making that catastrophic mistake of the late hit out of bounds. I was rooting for the Bengals but that gutsy play should be remembered as The Scramble.

The ankle will still be sprained in two weeks but Mahomes proved Sunday he can get it done in the pocket.

Baalke is the worst ever. No other GM in history has inherited a 14-2 team that was 1 play from winning a Superbowl and turned it into a 2-14 team within 2 years. Hall of Fame caliber players retired in their prime rather than continue playing because of the guy. Coaches quit. Free agents moved on to other teams for less money.

I wasn't sure Reich was going to get another HC job so quickly.

Doug Pederson called the plays when they were both in Philly. And Pederson has a lively offensive mind.

I'd like to see Reich get hired as a play calling OC first and see how that goes before re-anointing him.

Wilks certainly deserves another shot somewhere after the job he did at Carolina. He probably isn't getting near the termination money David Culley got from the Texans. Culley's money was the only positive thing that emerged from the way he was treated by Houston.

It's a story that's oft been told, an assistant coach of color stepping up to serve as a stopgap HC in the wake of another big coach hiring and firing disaster.

As much as Black coaches not getting fair opportunities to lead teams, it's the money that front offices willingly throw at questionable or unproven White coaches that then turns into crazy buyouts that I find bothersome.

Sometimes it's coaches like Rhule - I thought Tepper was supposed to be smarter than to back up the Brinks truck for a coach with very limited NFL experience. Or fuck, who in their right mind would think of bringing in Jeff Saturday, even as a temp? That's right, Mr. Irsay, no one in their right mind.

Trent Baalke takes the cake. He hired Jim Tomsula, Chip Kelly and Urban Meyer. Spreading his genius across the entire contiguous US.

Sometimes, teams compound their idiocy: first they sign a HC of questionable merit to a huge extension, THEN they fire them. What the hell did Kliff Kingsbury put in the Cardinals' punch bowl?

In the end, a coach who has proven his worth under adverse conditions deserves proper consideration, color regardless. Guys like Gruden, Josh McDaniels, Hackett, or Dennis Allen ought not be whisked to the dotted line at the signing table while coaches like Rich Bisaccia and Steve Wilks get a pat on the back and have to go looking for their next jobs hat in hand.

From the theatrical career change desk:

- Mike McCarthy would make a great addition to any retro film noir in the tradition of Charles Coburn or Edward G. Robinson. Either dispatching detectives or hiding from from the law.

Last night's Hurricanes at Islanders game featured the battle of Sebastian Aho. The Hurricanes' Aho is from Finland whereas the Islanders' Aho is from Sweden. It went incredibly well for the Finn with a natural hat trick and not well at all for the Swede who was pretty much responsible for the first two goals.

[The Finnish Aho's] first goal was a perfectly placed pass by linemate Teuvo Teravainen, who threaded it right to Aho's blade through two Islanders' defensemen " one of them being Sebastian Aho " for the redirection goal.

The second goal saw Aho flex his reflexes and knock down an attempted cross-ice pass from Sebastian Aho, leaving him in alone with Sorokin where he ripped it by the Russian netminder.

So I lied to you people. I told you I would be at Celtics vs Warriors, but I didn't make it. My wife and I both tested positive for Covid-19 on Tuesday, so our presence at TD Garden would not have been welcomed. We are recovering nicely so far, but neither of us has any stamina. We have heard that it might be a month before we feel right.

The really fun part of the whole thing is that we lost Internet service on Tuesday evening, and it just came back tonight. It affects our land line as well, since with our high-speed internet we use the fiber to provide VOIP phone service. Add to this that we live in an area where the mobile phone signal strength is astonishingly poor, so communication with anything other than signal lamp or semaphore is not possible. Covid felt like the worst headache I've ever had superimposed upon a worse than average case of the flu. Avoid it if you can.

So Lamar is an unbelievable athlete but obviously a non-conventional NFL QB.

Roman appears to be a master of designing offenses that suit his primary QB's abilities as he did with Lamar and Kaepernick. The drawback is if these primary guys get injured it is virtually impossible for anyone else to execute the offense. You simply cannot teach the replacement to be the same athlete.

It's sort of a bittersweet day.

I lost my "Forget about the guaranteed money, what about Greg Roman?" talking point in the ongoing Lamar Jackson contract / status discussion.

Roman stepped down as Ravens OC yesterday.

I grew up with "you won't have Dick Nixon to kick around any more" and now Roman is fulfilling that role, at least until some other team hires him.

NFL Pickem Champion: Truthhurts

Holding the top spot for 2/3 of the season is quite impressive.

But [gestures around at contestants] is it? Is it really?

Kidding aside, well done truthhurts. And another huge thank you to rcade for putting the pick em together.

NFL Pickem Champion: Truthhurts

I did the opposite of Bender, as I went from the Costanza around the mid way point to finishing third (but still 100 or so points behind, so in no real danger of winning/lol.)

It corresponded with the Jaguars beginning to win, so look out next year, as I won't have that automatic loss each week.

What can I say, as a Titans fan, my epic fall from contention ran right alongside theirs. It seems there were points for one of us at a time, but not both, Jags.

Congratulations, Truth! Holding the top spot for 2/3 of the season is quite impressive.

SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

Cowboys are a crazy team. Just never know whether you'll get the team that is much bigger, faster, more talented and able to completely crush the opposition or the team that appears to be unprepared and unfocused (this opinion is not based solely on their victory over a bad team from bad division).

Brett Maher downed six of those Jangles units before last night's Cowboys - Bucs game.

After the game, Maher was seen taking part in a high stakes poker game with other NFL players including Trevor Lawrence.

Maher to Lawrence: "I'll see your 4 INT's and raise you 4 missed PAT's".

If this doesn't entice you to move to North Carolina, then I don't know what will.

I will be at Celtics vs Warriors Thursday night. I'm picking Celtics, but there are 2 reasons I won't slam it. First, it's the first hoe game after a road trip. Second, Celtics record with 2 days rest between games is 1 - 6. Of course if Tatum could drop another 51...
