#TGIT (Thank God It’s Thursday) was all the rage yesterday and now, it is Friday (TGIF!) So…what was Thursday all about? Well, Derek Jeter finished his storied career in Yankee pinstripes in the Bronx last night in fine fashion. He had a double on his first at bat and then a walk off single RBI to win the game for the Yankees, 6-5 over Baltimore. Can’t ask for a better story book ending than that! He will play for the Yankees in their season ending series at Fenway against the Red Sox not at SS, only as a designated hitter. One of the all time class acts in sports has called it a day!
In CFB, 24 Oklahoma State eventually ran away from Texas Tech, 45 – 35. Very impressive performance by 11 UCLA and the return of QB Brett Hundley in a thorough beat down of 15 Arizona State, 62-27! WOW! Love that PAC 12 football (for all the talk about the SEC, PAC 12 football is awesome as well!!) In NFL action, Eli (little bro of Peyton) Manning threw five (5) TD passes in the nation’s capital as the Giants took care of the Redskins, 45-14. Not a good night for Redskin’s QB Kirk Cousins (Michigan State), four interceptions.”
Thursday night TV was full of hit shows returning. Grey’s Anatomy (watched it, pretty good), Scandal (do not watch but I know millions did) and Parenthood (in it’s farewell season and yes, I am a fan!). Also, I found the theater NOT near me and saw This Is Where I Leave You! It was so good…laughter, tears, family dysfunction that is poignant but not mean and cruel (believe me, I know about the latter) and just a tremendous cast. With all the stars in this movie, I have to give high praise to Jason Bateman…I just really love him! Now, I am primed for the trek to see Gone Girl next weekend when it opens…reading the book now!!
Ryder Cup action got underway from Scotland in the wee hours of the morn here in the good ole USA! Unfortunately, after day one (four ball play) USA trails Europe 3-5. At least Mickelson and Bradley won against Garcia and Mcilroy, especially relevant after that tongue in cheek interview Lefty gave before the action got underway regarding the “litigious actions” of the European team (Mcilroy suing his former management team and involving Graeme McDowell in the mess). Kind of funny really! Now, come on Team USA, get her done tomorrow! (four hole competition)
So it is Friday indeed (TGIF). Enjoy your evening and weekend. CFB in full swing tomorrow, College Gameday live from Columbia, SC as South Carolina will host Arkansas, pardon me, Missouri (last year’s winner of the SEC East) in an SEC battle. Lot’s of great games on along with day two of Ryder Cup action (replay is at a much more favorable time for watching here in the states!)
