To help them win it because they should win it they're the underdog today the Indians to their embraced the underdog role to got a great manager got a great program manager for all right under it hurts our home. But it does no good at home the numbers are better with specially for some some specific hitters. So OK so help at the Red Sox lose it.

I forget how how would political wrong that the game is tied at the six who has the advantage Indians. A bowl then. Manufacture runs with a run the bases. Number Sox kid to present at times. It and where you command until one run games this year and say Red Sox were not really good 100 I didn't know Cleveland was Texas off the charts I don't know Cleveland's. But there there's the Cleveland Cleveland vs playoff teams missed twelve and 21 aspect. 364 everybody else threats by the way America of the best buy 44. Winning percentage against playoff teams 364.

Lately I’ve been chronicling this epidemic of clown sightings. And to a large extent, I’ve felt like a lone voice in a very creepy wilderness. Picture the scientist in every SciFi Original Movie trying to warn everyone about some serious, supernatural threat but they just … wouldn’t … listen.

So I hope this video serves as a wakeup call. Scary clowns are not only out there, they’re in the woods, waiting for people on suspensions, armed with knives. And if we’ve learned anything from “Star Wars” and “Game of Thrones,” there is no greater danger imaginable than standing on a suspension bridge facing somebody with a weapon. Now add a circus freak into the mix and it is the worst kind of nightmare scenario imaginable.

So let this be proof of what I’ve been telling you for weeks now. The Clown Apocalypse is upon us. And as these heroic group of Penn State students said at their rally, it doesn’t matter where you’re from or who you’re voting for, F- that clown.

The staff at ESPN the Magazine has taken a break from writing exhaustive, fact-free and agenda-driven hatchet pieces on what a cheating cheater Bill Belichick is to instead talk to the people who actually know him to get a true profile of the man.

While I hate to recommend anyone click a link that will help the World Wide Leader’s bottom line, I can’t deny the result is a fascinating oral history of The Hooded One, told entirely in first-person accounts from people who have worked for and with him throughout his coaching career. A very positive, insider’s look at his work ethic, preparation, attention to detail and, most interestingly, his acts of kindness to help those who have been loyal to him. Which is what makes this little chestnut buried in the piece so interesting:

 John Harbaugh (Ravens Coach, 2008-Present): “Bill called our owner at like 3 in the morning to recommend me for the Ravens job. I was just really grateful and I couldn’t believe it. I called Bill up and thanked him right away. He just said, ‘Ah, don’t worry about it, you should’ve had the job three days ago.’ “

Well, that explains a lot. About what kind of a man Bill Belichick is, and what kind of a man John “Father of Deflategate” Harbaugh is.

Belichick is the kind of guy who will give up his REM sleep, when he could be tucked in bed, happily dreaming of coverages where the quarterback fails to spot the free safety and seam routes where his tight end is singled by a slow linebacker, in order to do a solid for another coach. Harbaugh is the kind of guy who rewards the man who changed his life with a knife in the back because he’s embarrassed he couldn’t handle said man’s unorthodox alignments. One guy selflessly goes to bat for a professional acquaintance, the other conspires with the Colts and Mike Kensil to ruin the first guy’s team, quarterback and professional reputation.

That’s how Harbaugh expresses how “really grateful” he is. And he has the unmitigated audacity to say he’d like to ride on Belichick’s boat some day. Sorry, Johnny. It’ll never happen. There are about 50 other people quoted in this ESPN the Magazine article who know how to reward loyalty who’ll get there long before you.

From the first moment I heard about Kim Kardashian supposedly getting robbed by five masked gunmen in Paris, my B.S. sonar started pinging like crazy. By the way, it’s the same truth detector I used to be right about Deflategate from Minute 1 and call shenanigans on Ryan Lochte’s little international incident in Rio. So I trust my own instincts here as well.

First of all, when you’re accusing someone of cooking up a huge lie, particularly one as elaborate as this, the natural reaction is to say, “What kind of a person would try to get away with such an insane story?” And, “Why would anyone lie about such a thing?” Well in this case, the answers are simple.

Kim Kardashian. And because she is Kim Kardashian.

If you think that anything that family does is on the level, in any way tied to reality or not concocted to boost publicity and make ignoramuses watch their terrible TV shows, you are a child. Hell, I didn’t even believe the whole Kayne West/Taylor Swift “feud” from this past summer because it was too perfectly scripted to be anything but a ploy for ratings.

As is this “robbery” story, which reads like Act I of a crime caper movie. Masked men. Who happen to know exactly what they’re after. Kim traveling with tons of jewelry. The robbers bind and gag her for a little touch of “50 Shades.” Of course, no one is hurt. Just “shaken.” And it’s Paris, so we get the mental picture of the Champs-Elysees and the Eiffel Tower out every window and probably mimes pedaling bikes past the building with loaves of bread in the basket.

And let’s not forget that Kanye just happened to be live on stage when the call comes and he gets to tell the crowd he’s “got a family emergency.” The whole thing is so perfectly laid out and timed to the season premiere of that used diaper of a TV show that it stinks to high heaven.

If I haven’t made it clear by now, to me the Kardashians are the embodiment of everything that is wrong with America. I’ve said before and I’ll say again, while I pray every day we never get attacked again, if it should happen, I want the terrorists to say it’s because they watch our television. And they’ve declared war on us to stop the “Toddlers & Tiaras,” the “Real Housewives of …,” “Teen Mom” and most of all, this lying, scheming, enabled brood of self-absorbed, narcissistic publicity whores and the criminal mastermind in charge of the whole operation, Ryan Seacrest.

I could be wrong about this. (Spoiler alert: I am not wrong about this.) And if I am, it will not change the way I despise these empty-headed, spoiled twits one iota. They are the worst. And when this gets exposed, remember where you heard it first.
