* Brady has started a craze - any sporting event - players yell - “Lets go!”

* Great point by Dan Shaughnessy - Red Sox have only allowed one “black” act sing at Fenway out of 66 concerts - i guess they were projecting when they came at Tom Yawkey

* The punt return touchdown by Cleveland Brown Damon Sheehy-Giuseppi was as special as sports gets - a former homeless man who begged and lied himself into a tryout - the reaction from his teammates running into the end zone was what sports used to be like - fun and caring about teammates
