[shrug] The Colts have a Super Bowl win behind 'em.  I think the Browns have had maybe ONE over .500 season in the last 10.  Is this Cleveland's year?  Ask me again when we've won a game that counts.

LOL! You and Browns, me and the Colts. Perennial losers. Could this be THE year?

Meantime, the Browns went 3-1 in their preseason efforts.  Now ... extrapolating from 2017, where they were 4-0 in the preseason and 0-16 in the main, does this mean that MAYBE they'll go 4-12 through December?

I've been watching the HBO series, Hard Knocks, which has been tracking the Browns, and just maybe there is a fundamental change in approach and attitude ... but I'll believe it ONLY when they start putting a significant number of games in the "W" column.

Oh jeez, another season of suffering through football "color announcer's" bad grammar.

Within a span of one minute during a game last night, I heard the ex-jock say "have ran", "feet was", and "have went". My cringe level hit a 10. Arrrggghhh!

The same game featured the "main man" announcing, Jason Benetti. He's wonderful! And amazing. He grew up with cerebral palsy, finding it difficult to walk. He can't look straight into the camera with one eye peering sideways. Very bright (lawyer degree) with a powerful voice. He does White Sox games on a regular basis, but knows his football.

Not to beat a dead horse, but...

I watched 3 of 4 Cubs' games over the past 4 days. They scored a total of 4 runs--TOTAL! One run in each game (all home runs). Somehow, they won 2 games, shutting out Pittsburgh 1-0 in each.

It happened again (see last post)! ESPN had the Cubs/Nationals game on last night. For 8 &1/2 innings, I suffered through no runs, only 3 hits. Cubs were losing 3-0, bottom of the ninth. So, I went outdoors to look for meteors (Perseid shower--didn't see any, as usual) for 10 minutes. The minute I walked back inside, the Cubs batter was rounding third base jumping up and down. He had just hit a grand slam "walk-off" homerun! Cubs won 4-3, and I missed it! Truly amazing. I am a jinx, no doubt about it!

I'm not superstitious, but I sometimes wonder. It seems that whenever I watch the Chicago Cubs on TV, they lose. When not on, they win. Really! I watched last night and they lost 9-0 with only 3 hits. Not much fun. This happens ALL the time. Well, maybe I'm exaggerating a bit, but I bet it's the majority.

I'm responsible for them winning the World Series (2016). Yep, no doubt about it. You see, I was watching the 7th game through 6 innings when I had to drive over an hour to the airport to pick up my daughter. By the time we got back, the game was over and the Cubs won. If I'd been home to watch, they would have lost. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!

Life is full of disappointments, with or without a god. I happened upon the end of a baseball game where the pitcher was tossing a no-hitter. Ninth inning, two outs, two strikes, and there was a hard hit single. The fans were all stunned. I wonder whose side god was on?!  (And boy do I hate it when they point to the sky.)

PBS aired a "Masters" show on "The Greatest Hitter Ever", Ted Williams, last night. He was one of my heroes growing up (me, not him). Few people knew that his mother was Mexican, which he kept a secret. He had his issues over the years--bad temper, poor father and husband, etc., but, oh my, what a good batter he was.

The ESPYS (sports award show last night) was pathetic--what little I watched. Every other award winner "thanked god" (sickening). Every time I flipped over to watch it, there was a commercial or something "maudlin" to touch our hearts. Yuck. I'm getting to be quite the cynic.
