Sports Corner – July 31, 2019

Yes, at long last, it’s NFL preseason!  Games that not only mean nothing, but feature a lot of players we’ll never see again!  And yet these games will sell out, and get better ratings than most regular season baseball games.  America’s love affair with the NFL continues, even as a bunch of Broncos scrubs and Falcons scrubs take the long bus ride to Canton, OH.

Elsewhere…

  • MLB trading deadline is upon us.  Will the Yankees finally add a starter?  Will the Dodgers add bullpen depth?  Will the Mets do anything that makes sense?
  • Hey, it looks like there might be pennant races in the NL East and AL Central.
  • I think the Tour de France was won by Mother Nature and that freak hailstorm.

All sports topics welcome, as ever.
