Oh, and of the six teams in this year’s AFL, I’m a really big fan of the caps being worn by the Glendale Desert Dogs. What’s your favorite?

Many of you saw the Kansas City Royals yesterday rally from an improbable 4 run deficit in the eighth inning to beat the Astros and avoid elimination in the American League Division Series. One of the key moments during that comeback was when KC’s Kendrys Morales hit a ball up the middle off Houston reliever Tony Sipp. The ball skipped off the mound and off shortstop Carlos Correa’s glove for a 2-run error.
The broadcasters felt it should’ve been a hit. I thought it was correctly ruled an error. What do you think?
Pretty cool of Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips to travel to “The Pit” last week to watch an epic high school football game between powerhouses Elder and Moeller…
