AROUND THE WORLD WIDE OF WEB

We all miss live sports so much it hurts. For a number of reasons. One of which is there’s nothing to gamble on. Unless you and the neighbors, from an acceptable social distance, are betting on the kids racing around the cul-de-sac (we don’t judge). Well, for those looking for any sort of action possible you can now bet on of all things...the 2020 presidential election. At least in West Virginia. Odds are...whoever you pick will...upset someone. This highlights both the idea that they’ll let you do just about anything in the land of the mountaineers...and that we really need legalized gambling all over New England.

IT IS WHAT IT IS AND IT IS HILARIOUS

Baltimore Ravens coach, and noted Patriots critic, John Harbaugh has voiced his concerns over the 2020 NFL Drat’s virtual format, citing worry over the possibility of other parties being able to hack into their war room “I really wouldn't want the opposing coaches to have our playbook or our draft meetings.” Which translated means he’s worried about the Patriots. And if the idea of Bill Belichick hacking into the Ravens draft Zoom is in Harbaugh’s head then the Pats have already won the night. As Tom Brady said maybe you should learn the rule book, Jim.

TODAY IN EX-PATS

If you’re pretending to not be as obsessed with everything Brady and Bucs like me...and doing a terrible job...and are awaiting anxiously Warm Weather Tom’s interview with Howie Hamptons on satellite radio today, check out Tampa Bay’s new uniforms. A more classic look, back to the Derrick Brooks era, ditching the oversized alarm clock font, plus an all-pewter alt uni! Pretty cool, actually. But then I saw the Brady 12 and I kinda feel maybe a little sick?

Allow us to show you the future --

BECAUSE YOU NEED THIS

Every day we’re all forced to stay home is another chance to improve our trick sports skills that used to have no worth beyond doing it for family at a holiday gathering. And now we share them with the world because this is the best sports we’ll get. This highlight is best enjoyed humming the Harlem Globetrotters theme song.
