'God Only Knows' Sports Ruled by Stupidity

After Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed a 19-yard pass to tight end Austin Hooper Monday night in Buffalo, ESPN analyst Dan Orlovski said:

“Note the extended release. It’s like an out-of-zone run game. When you reach your depth, there’s that 3-level flood. Go to the outside post, and the ball fakes back.”

Yes, he took the words out of my mouth or out of other orifices.

And not surprisingly, it leads us to the murderous stalemate of World War I and trench warfare. I was there.

Field medics tagged the victims with “GOK,” which means “God Only Knows,” before evacuating them to field hospitals.

This past weekend was once again jam-packed with GOK — games won and lost on top of corrupt decisions and actions for no discernible reason.

Start Friday night with a game between the Yankees and the Brewers. The Yankees lost 7-6 in his 4:09 game, and the team added analysis using his 15 pitchers Managers Aaron Boone and Craig We looked for pitchers to eliminate effective pitchers and be bombarded.

It wasn’t enough for Lou Trivino to face three batters in the seventh inning and strike out all three. Boone likes to strive for perfection. So he went to Trivino.

Counsel made two reliever changes, first Brad Boxberger and then Devin Williams, going 1-2-3 with two strikeouts each.

Why did baseball lose to such insanity? God.

There was a big explosion all over TV on Saturday, and ESPN2 had a head-to-head race at Purdue Syracuse. With less than two minutes remaining, Syracuse took his 25-22 lead, but Purdue was ahead. It seemed strange why Orange coach Dino Bavers didn’t use timeouts. And with 51 seconds remaining, it seemed even more unfathomable when Purdue tight end Payne Durham caught a touchdown pass.

Durham had to be flagged for being overly humble and getting his end zone struts in order. Horrible. But he paid quickly.

After the extra point, Durham was flagged for a late hit. Moments later, a Purdue coach was apparently furious at the call and was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct. Syracuse returned the kickoff to his 50th with a short-field gift wrapping him, with him 45 seconds remaining.

Two more penalties against Purdue brought the Orange closer until they scored with seven seconds left. Another unsportsmanlike flag against Purdue followed.

The final minutes of the game included the participation of the latest sports groups.

Still, ESPN’s Brian Custer (a former SNY anchor who didn’t quite get it) and Dustin Fox couldn’t get over the “fact” that we saw “a great college football game!” . When it was a fool’s delight.

Capper appeared in a post-match “interview” with Barbers conducted by Lauren Sisler. With so much to ask, she pulled out all-in-one-game “questions” that the post-match Inquisitor remembered all week long.

“What kind of statement is this for your football team?”

The next day, and more: Browns running back Nick Chubb and Cleveland’s 24-man coaching staff simultaneously won Fantasy Football Play of the Week, running for TD instead of falling after Chubb reached first down at 1 I lost the game when I chose to :55 left. The Jets had no timeouts left, so it was game over.

Instead, the Jets went from being a 24-17 loser to a 31-30 winner. GOK, let’s do it.

Urinary Trouble When Nature Calls You at the Wrong Time

It has to happen, right? So here is the plan:

One of the local TV stations should post a news crew outside the men’s restroom at Yankee Stadium in anticipation of someone inside who missed Aaron Judge’s next home run.

After that home run, a complaining young father could show up with a kid who couldn’t stand it.

What an angle! What an interview! What a scoop!

On Wednesday’s ESPN’s “Around the Horn,” panelist Frank Isola noted that Barry Bonds, Mark McGuire and Sammy Sosa’s steroid-era “accomplishments” dilute the excitement that accompanies Judge’s home run season. . The inaction of the short-sighted ex-commissioner Bud Selig.

Agreed. Bonds, Maguire and Sosa were not inducted into the Hall of Fame, while Selig was inducted just two years after he retired.

The NBC team of Jack Collinsworth and Jason Garrett, who called the Cal Notre Dame game on Saturday, will have to try plain English. The quarterback did not run, but “used his legs.” The running back ran “downhill”. Both offenses tried to make “positive plays.”

By the way, a reader asks if a player can still run downhill after teams switch sides on the field. But only if the game is played in the North Pole.

SNY’s Steve Gelbs proved that Hamm is eligible to run as a sausage by winning Wednesday’s sausage race by completing two holes in Milwaukee as the Polish Sausage.

Stats anytime: Last Sunday’s Panthers vs. Giants halftime, Fox posted a full-screen graphic showing the game’s three “top performers.” One was Carolina receiver Robbie Anderson. “3 catches, 32 yards”. not much. And one catch ended in a fumble, giving the Giants a 3-0 lead.

In Milwaukee on Wednesday, Mets’ Jeff McNeil injured his hand while trying to catch on the left field fence in front of a billboard that read “Injury Lawyers.”

Too frustrating to watch local MLB TV broadcasts

Local baseball telecasts seem to be getting downright annoying.

During Mets games, Keith Hernandez’s whining, moaning, and moaning can be heard regularly when something catastrophe befalls the Mets, such as a bloop single.

Still, who can’t sympathize with Hernandez when a slow-moving game (isn’t everyone?) delaying his return to Sag Harbor for some fine wine? Cry me a river of 2016 Château Pape Clément Pessac -Léognan Cabernet.

Yankees telecasts, if you can watch them, continue to be insulting.

In a 4-4 game against the Pirates on Tuesday, lazy Josh Donaldson sent a first base runner to ground shortstop O’Neill Cruz. Cruise muffed it, so there was no play in the second, but he threw Donaldson out. Yes, I showed Donaldson next. At first, I was in no particular hurry and had the bat first.

David Kohn: “It’s hard to fight the initial disappointment when you can’t get in touch. Take a few steps with your bat.

“And you see that so much in today’s game. Today’s players aren’t dogs. They just expect a hit. If they don’t, they’ll be disappointed, they’ll take the full procedure, or they’ll be out of the box.” If you put it out and don’t use it up, you may have to pay the price.”

teeth? Donaldson made good contact. And when hitters averaged .260 instead of .240, didn’t they expect to “get hit”?

Paul O’Neill: “It’s not intentional, it’s just habit.”

4-4, bottom of the 7th inning, first offense, no out! habit? disappointed? Stop! Donaldson stuck with it. Also. If it’s a “habit”, Boone has cultivated it for the past five seasons.
