NFL News:

“Who’s the new guy, Bill? Haha – I’m just kidding….Steve?”
  • New England is Hoyer Country once again as he signed a three-year deal to hold Tom’s hat when he goes onto the field.
    • But he almost stopped in Green Bay, as the Packers try to move on without Aaron Rodgers.
      • Which CLEARLY bodes well for the rest of the season.
  • The expected has become the reality: Brock Osweiler has been named starter for the Broncos versus the Eagles this Sunday.
    • Mostly because Paxton Lynch is still hurt.
  • Not saying he doesn’t have the right to dress up, but I’m going to say blackface is never a good idea?

In a shareholder conference call Wednesday, Papa John’s said the NFL player protests have hurt its sales & bottom line.

  • According to Rovell’s transcript, “The NFL has hurt us,” company founder and CEO John Schnatter said. “We are disappointed the NFL and its leadership did not resolve this.”
    • The company has pulled some ads, and has been provided additional space for future games as compensation.
      • They claim game-day revenue projections are down, because boycotting fans = less gameday pizza purchased.
    • On Wednesday, Papa John’s shares fell to a three-month low of $62.14 (as of about noon ET), dropping more than $5 per share with the news of the struggles on the earnings call.
  • Clearly taking a shot at Roger Goodell, the company also added:
    • “Good or bad, leadership starts at the top and this is an example of poor leadership,” Schnatter said in prepared remarks, via Chris Otts of WDRB.com. “This should have been nipped in the bud a year and a half ago.”
  • On the other hand, SHOTS FIRED!


Tonight’s sports: Holy crap, what a night for viewing

  • MLB:
    • World Series: Game 7: Astros at Dodgers – 8:00PM | FOX / Sportsnet
  • NHL:
    • Flyers at Blackhawks – 8:00PM | NBCSN
    • Penguins at Oilers – 8:30PM | Sportsnet360
    • Leafs at Ducks – 10:00PM | Sportsnet1
    • Predators at Sharks – 10:30PM | NBCSN
  • NBA:
    • Rockets at Knicks – 8:00PM | ESPN
    • Raptors at Nuggets – 9:00PM | TSN
    • Mavericks at Clippers – 10:30PM | ESPN

Game 7s in a Final are a truly magical experience, and should be savoured when available. Last year’s World Series Game 7 was ridiculous, and not just because it ended a 108-year losing streak.

There were last-bat runs, extra innings, a weather delay, and sad LeBron James.

As we’ve discussed in the open threads. this year’s Series has been even more joyfully ridiculous. Last night’s game clocked in at 3:22 in length, an hour short of Game 1’s 2:27, but a full two hours short of Game 5’s length. They already had the most home runs in a Series before Game 5 even started, and neither manager really knows what to do with their bullpen. Tonight’s either going to end 1-0 or 13-9.

Mr. Scott, your thoughts?

Random Wheel of Fortune thought: These days, the real entertainment of it is how visibly miserable Pat Sajak looks throughout the show.

I’m sure the paychecks cheer him up, though.

I’m calling it a tie between you and BFC, for when they showed up. Because yes.

Fine, as long as I dont’ have to kiss him.

Well now that you bring it up…

Over the past few nights with this Wheel of Fortune thing, I’ve noticed something.

We, as a group, don’t do well with taking turns.

Gonna be that guy,

Don’t exact spellings matter with this game?

Because I thought of that answer, but the middle word had no e, and she spells Jameson with one.

Or is it, dfo rules, get crazy or get out

theeWeeBabySeamus

I dunno. But thank you for making me not look like the biggest porn hound on the site at least.

Twas a fair fight. Full series, Game 7, back-and-forth in the previous six. I have several friends who are true Dodgers fans. I say, good for the Astros. That first title is one no one ever forgets. There’s the Harvey thing, blah, blah, blah. Houston seems like a nice group of fairly likable people. This is also the city’s first championship of any kind since 1995.

On a scale between 1 (multilpe times cumming) and 10 (going into a coma due to dehydration from all the cumming) how stoked is Sports Illustrated that Houston won in 2017 and Springer was the MVP? 500?
