I just had a brilliant idea on how to solve all these Dolphins’ disappointing seasons. Ross should sell the team to George Soros, who will then install the Democratic machinery throughout the entire organization. They will never lose! Even games they score less points would be altered to secure a winning outcome.

Well...for what it’s worth, and I’m sure it comes as no surprise to y’all that I’m not optimistic about the Dolphins’ season balance. Outside the upcoming Dec. 2 game against the Bills (Dolphins rarely lose on my birthday), it looks bleak to me. A 6-10 gets them in the 9th pick range - again - and leaves Stephen Ross scratching his head.

BB, I’ve had Klay Thompson penciled in as my off-season free agent pick for going on a year now. More preferable even than Kawhi Leonard. That move would be perfect from a thousand points. Father Mychal (Bahamas) is a contemporary of Mr. Woods and I. He went to Jackson High, a competing school to ours. He eventually wound up being a Laker, winning two championships with them. He went on doing color commendation for Laker radio, which I believe still does. He moved his family to Santa Margarita, right next door to Mission Viejo, where I lived for over 30 years. Klay went to Santa Margarita Catholic School, whose church we frequently attended. Naturally, since Mychal was/is a Laker, he was buds with Kobe, who would practice with Klay during summers. The guy has roots in SoCa. Is a terrifying outside shooter (which is by far what the Lakers need). It’s a no- brainer, which I hope materializes.

Yup to that. I had a feeling that that (logjam) might occur. Butler might be problematic. He’s a guy (like Irving) who demands the ball. We will see how their two budding stars handle that.

Butler and Leonard going over to the east will more than offset James’ shift to the West.

Both Philadelphia and those Canadians are not going to make it easy for your team to cut through.

BB, Have you noticed how both the Celtics and Lakers share the same win/loss record? Even though the Lakes play out of the more demanding Western Conference. Hmm...and still learning to play with one another...🤫

...I think that’s what he gave me the last time the Dolphins won a Super Bowl. 🤪

We’ve got the league right where we want them. I can’t wait to see your looks after the Dolphins peel off six straight to go 11-5. Btw, I just finished writing my letter to Santa Claus. I asked him for a new bike, a robot kit and a BB gun that looks like a .45.

the shadow knows, Did you say +9.5? Is that per quarter?

Read a pretty decent analysis concerning the demise of the big man in today’s NBA. Basically attributing much of it to stretch offense. Made sense.

Just hate everything Boston. Baked beans, clam chowder, Bruins, BC, Red Sox, Patriots, perpetual liberal politics, and especially, the Celtics. Big Baby is the only exception, who ought to move himself and his family to Texas. One of the few vestiges left of what most of us 60+ types remember as being America. All else is lost, as witnessed by Florida voting to elect a full blown socialist as governor. Oh, but that’s okay. He hates Trump and that’s all that’s required to usher in a national crapland transformation. Sad.

Still basking in the glow of all things Republican here in Houston. A 180* turn from 6 years in Austin, where we were made to feel as if we never left Commifornia. Went to the Ted Cruz rally this past Friday. A small venue sitting some 300 or so. This was held at the Doubletree Hotel, which is four blocks away from where we live, thus we were able to get there early and nab seats front/center on the third row, right behind the two security guys protecting Energy Sec, Perry in the first row. Sean Hannity kicked off the event, followed by Perry. It was an awesome time for a rabid Concervative such as moi. Cruz was fantastic patiently taking photo ops with everyone of the 300. Got a chance to talk to him in Spanish for a few exchanges. Then yesterday, the Trump rally. Oh my! What a score. In the four months we’ve been here we’ve managed to somehow “get in” with Houston’s GOP influencers and as such, attending events such as the rally last night are relatively easy. What a show!!! To start with, people began assembling (camping out) starting at 6pm the night before. Come 12 hours later the crowds waiting to go in had swelled to some 32,000. 17,000 got to go in, and the rest were able to enjoy the experience via a number of Jumbotrons strategically placed around the Toyota Center (where the Rockets play). As for your humble (though a tad fanatic) host, wife and new GOP BF, who we’ve come to know here, we got in at 12pm, right after the security sweep, as VIP Volunteers. Our task was to escort those entering the center down to the best available seats. The doors opened at 3:30p and closed 6:30, so we were supposed to perform these duties for three hours. Reality however, is many times different than what gets planned. Especially for someone like me who at 18 years of age was paid to see every Dolphins home game for free during the “undefeated season” by discarding the vendor gear after selling Cokes through the first quarter and sitting in the best seats available. Here at the Trump rally, I just modernized the tactic. No sooner I entered the arena, I went down to the best viewing seats I could find (third row, at 10 o’clock to the speakers). Didn’t want anything lower, as I knew everyone at the Moshpit would be standing and holding up signs. So I whip out the ole masking tape and proceed to tape off five seats for our group and mark the tape as “Reserved For VIP Volunteers Working Event.” Needless to day, after I personally ushered in and sat all around me a different group of VIPs that were allowed early entry entry, I discarded the volunteer tag and sat down to wait for the show. What followed was nothing short of fantastic. Loved it!

Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh my! Well, at least they squeaked a victory against the Bears.

BB, they lost a close game against one of the strongest Western Conference team. An away game at that, and their first game together. Luke Walton hasn’t even figured out who all the starters are. Given all that, and I don’t know how closely watched it, if at all, but the Lakers killed them in the paint, and in transition. They lost it at the 3-line by making 7 less three. That’s 21 points! I liked what I saw. Walton will figure it out. It will not take long for him to insert Hart at the #2 and outside shooter. There are other issues, like when McGee is out and size is lost, but no one should expect instant success. You’ll recall that I called them threats only after this year, after they pick up Thompson in free agency.

15 minutes before the start of a new Lakers dynasty. Only the beginning, but it will not take as much time as haters think. Next year, the team will either be joined by Kawhi Leonard or Klay Thompson, then, it’s all over. Let the fun begin!

He’s really a Giants fan. His dad was a Yankee fan, so he has sone affinity, but I wouldn’t classify him as such.

Clarification. I don’t care whether or not Houston advances. Not a fan. But I do care about cheats.

Not that I care one way or another, but why are teams and fans from Boston disproportionately involved with some sort of sports controversy? Last night’s fan interference might have caused Houston the game. And how on earth can than umpire rule the play an out? Did he possess some sort of clairvoyance assuring the catch but for the fan? Given enough examples of past behavior, one earns a reputation. In this case, not a positive one. See: snowplow, midnight hotel alarms, no heat in freezing opponent’s locker rooms, spy gate, deflate gate, Rosie Ruiz, on and on, and on.
