And that isn’t out of the question. There are many games yet to play, but they are looking good.

They would become the first pennant winner and first “World Champion” with a losing record. I like some of the changes in baseball, but I don’t like that. It was embarrassing enough when the Cardinals won the World Series with a 83-78 record in 2006. That’s the current record for the worst World Series winner, but not for the worst pennant winner. That record is held by the 1973 Mets, who were just a hair worse at 82-79. Those Mets came close to a World Series win of their own. They had the As down 3-2 before their bats went stone cold in the last two games.


The Jets and Giants lost again

The Bills won again and the Seahawks joined them at 4-0. On Monday the Packers and Chiefs joined the 4-0 club.

Old man Brady tossed 5 TDs against the Chargers.

And yes, the Cleveland Browns will return home next week with a 3-1 record after their big road victory over Dak Prescott, although Prescott AGAIN passed for more than 450 yards, this time with 502. Prescott is averaging more than 420 yards per game. Nobody has ever averaged more than 350 for a full season. Of course it might be more impressive if he hadn’t lost the game again. I shouldn’t say HE lost it. In those three games when he passed for 450 or more, the Dallas defense has allowed 39-38-49, so he had to put up 40 points to win. When you get right down to it, he was fortunate to win one of the three. WEIRD fact: despite all those yards, Prescott ranks 11th in passer rating, and is nowhere near Wilson, Mahomes, Rodgers or Allen.

(The passing yardage and completion percentages these days are incredible. Wilson is completing about 75% of his passes and others are close to that. Namath completed 49% during the regular season when he secured his legend in Super Bowl III, and passed for a mere 206 yards in that very famous game.)

Investigators probe ‘possible ecological catastrophe’ in Russia’s Kamchatka region

“Russian investigators said Saturday they were looking into “a possible ecological catastrophe” in the eastern Kamchatka region, after scores of dead sea creatures washed up in one of it bays and surfers reported burns to their eyes and throats.”

What more can go wrong this year?

It’s difficult to imagine anyone in the future looking back at 2020 with nostalgia.
