If you're keeping track at home, this is the fourth year in a row that Tony Romo will miss time with a major injury. And this isn't the first time his back has been a problem for him. He had back surgery in 2013, had two fractured vertebrae in 2014 missed some time last season, and now this, a broken collar bone. Romo's 36 years old. He's been a good quarterback, when he's healthy, which is almost never. Perhaps it’s time to consider retirement Tony. Then Giant fans can worry about Dak Prescott. Dak Who?
There’s a saying that a team is only as strong as its weakest player. I’m not quite sure how accurate that is but there are some instances when the expression holds some water. The Yankees’ bullpen may be one of these cases, at least in some ways. The Yankees dropped their second straight winnable game Monday night, this one 8-5 to the Royals. It’s not good when the last guys on your roster are deciding the most important games of the season. The last guys are of course the middle of the bullpen boys. Blake Parker was the guilty party last night . Parker gave up a three-run home run to Alcides friggin’ Escobar to give Kansas City a 6-1 lead. Three more singles and a walk stretched the Royals’ lead to 8-1. The Yanks did make a comeback but fell short. Hey Joe, did you ever consider bringing in the well rested Tyler Clippard ??!
A popular meme circulating on the Internet Monday compared the careers of Colin Kaepernick with former 49ers running back Glen Coffee. Both men were born in 1987, played for the 49ers and were drafted in the third round. But, unlike Kaepernick, Coffee quickly left football and pursued a life of military service. Coffee gave up millions of dollars to serve his country. Kapernick refused to stand up for the anthem because “the American flag oppresses black people”. Coffee, a African American, is now a paratrooper assigned to Army Ranger School. Which guy will you cheer louder for?
