I think that it’s safe to say after Sunday’s 51-17 drubbing at the hands of the Los Angeles Rams that Giants head coach Ben McAdoo will get the ax and that the team will part ways with longtime QB Eli Manning once this disastrous season ends.
Don King, the legendary boxing promoter, made a rare appearance on Thursday at a boxing press conference to promote Saturday’s boxing card at Barclays Center which was televised on Showtime. His loquacious skills have not been diminished by the passing years. King is a very youthful 86.
It’s too bad that King’s boxer was butterball heavyweight Bernane Stiverne who was embarrassingly knocked out in less than one round by Deontay Wilder. The night was saved however by the terrific welterweight bout between Adrian Granados and Shawn Porter which the latter won in a 12-round unanimous decision.
The team that just won the World Series has long received an invitation to the White House or has had one of its players talk about visiting Disney World. A new tradition may be taking place. Last year the Cubs appeared in a couple of sketches on “Saturday Night Live” a few days after they beat the Indians in Game 7. This past Saturday three members of the Houston Astros: Alex Bregman, Jose Altuve, and George Springer, appeared with actress Leslie Jones on “Weekend Update” segment of “Saturday Night Live.”
Cable’s POP TV has updated the romantic comedic sketches of the baby boomer classic “Love, American Style” with a new show, “Hot Date,” that is geared towards twenty-somethings but can certainly be appreciated by all generations. “Hot Date” airs on Wednesdays at 8 PM.
