week. the red sox eliminate the yankees in thrilling fashion in the bronx.. beating the yankees 4 to 3. this sets up a blockbuster showdown in the alcs between the108-win red
9:50 am
sox and the 103-win and defending world series champion astros. it was a bad night for vallejo born.. cc sabathia.. he got into some trouble early, walking a player to load the bases in the first inning. he escaped that jam but he wasn't as lucky in the third: gave up three runs and three hits as boston took the lead for good. sabathia's night ended after that. as bad as he was.. he says the ref was worse and shouldn't be umping in the playoffs.. although he didn't blame him for the yankees hard loss. the warriors can say the game tonight doesn't matter, it's just the pre

season.. but it is a big deal.. since it's the first time they'll face lebron in a laker's jersey. maybe this will give a spark to the old rivalry.. when beating l-a in basketball used to be a big deal. plus maybe we'll see if lebron and lonzo ball can play nice... nobody gets along with his dad but it's lonzo's first outting since he got hurt. it will also be weird to see javale mcgee in a laker's jersey. all kinds of fun dynamics to watch for. the game is at 7:30 in las vegas. apparently the nfl doesn't think people want to watch the 49ers.. can you blame em? they've booted the 9ers from their prime time sunday slot for the home game against the rams.. in favor of the kansas city game.. everybody is nuts about their undefeated quarter back patrick mahomes.. so sunday october 21st you can watch him go up against andy dalton and the 4 and 1 bengals.. the garoppolo- less 9ers have been relegated to the lesser 1:25pm time slot.. it probably won't be pretty.. they play the undefeated rams. raiders have to fly to london for their next game against the seahawks. they don't have their own plane.. i just found this on

google... heck mark davis flies southwest. anyway the seahawks are leaving today so they can get over there and get acclimated.. it's a 10 hour flight plus they have to get used to the 8 hour time difference before sunday. that's why everybody says you should get there sooner rather than later.. everybody except john gruden.. for some reason says it's better for the team to leave tomorrow night and have less time to recover from the trip.. even though he himself says he's a terrible traveler and the one time he had to take a 14 hour flight he had vertigo for a month... i needed a nap and two days just to have the energy to stand in front of buckingham palace.. i can't imagine having to play a football game. i have traveled a lot.. but never have a seen somebody try to get on a plane with a service squirrel. i didn't even know there was such a thing.. because squirrels are not comfort

animals.. they are scary little vermin. but look at this: a woman got on a frontier airlines flight in orlando with her emotional support squirrel. she told the airline she was flying with a service animal but they didn't realize it was a squirrel until she took her seat. you can fly with a cat or dog but not a rodent. she refused to get off. the called the cops.. and everybody had to get off. two hour delay. hour delay. to get off. two everybody had the
