Ken Pomeroy takes on Curling: Because everything is messed up, the last NCAA basketball tournament was cancelled, and who knows what's going to happen with the upcoming NCAA season, Ken Pomeroy has turned his statistical forecasting mind towards a niche market: Curling

Surprising almost no one, the Chargers decide to move to LA.: There's yet to be a final announcement, but the Chargers are pretty much set to return to Los Angeles (they played their first season there before moving to San Diego) for the 2017 season, where they will join the Rams in their new stadium as lease-paying tenants in Inglewood, expected to be completed for the 2019 season. In the meantime, the Chargers are expected to play at either the Coliseum or a 27,000 seat facility in Carson, somewhat limiting their immediate ability to cash in.

Philip Rivers Retires After 17 Seasons

I think the Raiders are first in the karma line, post JaMarcus Russel. But also, please understand that Leaf wasn't just a busted draft pick, he was utter trash as a person.

Philip Rivers Retires After 17 Seasons

A few other teams are thinking "Damn...the Chargers...Brees, Rivers, Herbert - what magic lamp have they been rubbing?

I like to think it's karmic payoff for drafting Ryan Leaf.

Black Monday Arrives for NFL Coaches

Yeah, I'd the Chargers would be the best situation. You already have a decent QB, a pro-bowl quality #1 receiver, an effective running back, a few other decent offensive options, a pretty good defense with a few top level rushers and DBs. Get a decent O line and overcome the curse that causes ridiculous losses and you're all set.

Josh Allen is Putting Up MVP Numbers

No, I pronounced it like you would if you were crossing a mountainside at a continuous elevation, not like "Travis" with an S inserted in the last syllable.

Doh, I meant Travis with an R in the last syllable

That's one of the first things you learn growing up in Michigan, how to pronounce "Sault" properly.

My 2nd day in Michigan I went to set up a bank account, and mentioned Traverse City. The teller said "now I know for sure you're not from Michigan."

Talib has covered at least one game previously - given the broadcasts that I have available to me (I only get Fox over the air), I'd assume it was a Lions game a few weeks back.

Matt Patricia is gone, and so is the GM who ran Jim Caldwell out of town to give Patricia the job.

Does any other football team have t-shirts associated with it that say "just once before I die"?

Maybe they'll be able to pry Eric Bieniemy away from KC.

Sarah Fuller Suits Up for Vanderbilt Against Missouri

I'm not entirely sure how it works, but I'm guessing it's the same as a graduate transfer for basketball?

Joe Buck did make a Woofie shoutout to all the guys playing in that game making huge contributions. Besides the QBs, Nyheim Hines had a huge night.

Dodgers Player Learns Covid-19 Test Was Positive During World Series Clincher

If someone gets sick, can they sue him for medical expenses? If someone dies, can they bring a wrongful death civil suit?

Yeah, ESPN has nothing. UVa is playing an early season tournament in Connecticut, and they have a game against Villanova, but that's all that's on the schedule at the UVa athletics page.

Ha, yeah, ask the team on the other sideline about that.
