It ain’t over ’til its over. Anthem update. Get your scorecard ready. ESPN’s Jemele Hill was suspended for two weeks for suggesting a boycott of Dallas Cowboys advertisers after owner Jerry Jones ordered players to stand for the anthem. ESPN putting Hill on vacation stating “a second violation of our social media guidelines.” President Trump, no fan of Hill, tweeted “with Jemele Hill at the mike it is no wonder ESPN ratings have tanked,” and went on to praise Jerry “get on you feet” Jones even though he was on his knees only weeks ago.
After watching players kneel V.P. Pence bolted from the Niners/Colts game quicker than an actress on Harvey Weinstein’s casting couch. And lastly Colin Kaepernick, Mr. Stars and Stripes, still searching for a sideline. You’re welcome.
So here we go. Rematch between CC Sabathia and Corey Kluber to decide who moves on to face the Astros in the ALCS. Savvy vet CC outpitched Corey in Game 2, better known as “knob” night. Kluber is at his worst when we back him, but I can’t envision him throwing back-to-back clunkers. 20 units on the Indians to survive. … Cubs/Nats was postponed and will be played this afternoon. Jake Arrieta was still scheduled to start, while “must win” Washington opted for Tanner Roark. Living dangerously and sticking with our original play. 20 units on the Cubs as well. Account holding at -437 colavitos.
