Gators Chomp On, Fan Gets Hit With Ball in Red Sox Win, and 9/11 Tributes

Another great weekend of college football as week two is now officially in the books. I went five-for-five with my football picks, but that last second come from behind victory by Jacksonville State Gamecocks over the FSU Seminoles was insane! As far as the Florida Gators are concerned, though, Anthony Richardson continues to impress and Dan Mullen will eventually have a tough decision to make. Do you stay loyal to Emory Jones and name him the starter or do you go with the electrifying backup? We will find out in the coming week as the Gators prepare for Saturday’s match-up against the reigning champs the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Jones had a good day and threw 151 yards and scored a touchdown, but he also threw two interceptions. Richardson, however, went 3-for-3, 152 yards, two touchdowns, and no turnovers. For me, at this point, the starter should be Anthony Richardson, but I’m not the coach.

”We have two quarterbacks that are pretty talented guys that can make things happen on the field, but there are a lot of things quarterbacks have to do.” – Florida Gator Coach Dan Mullen

The one concern with Richardson, though, was during the fourth quarter with less than 11 minutes left, Anthony scrambled for an 80 yard touchdown run, but grabbed his hamstring with apparent pain in the end zone. No details on the injury – if there is one – so hopefully it’s nothing serious as the Gators will definitely need all the help they can get against the Crimson Tide.

The Florida Gators continue to look strong and win this one easily as Coach Mullen secures his 100th victory over South Florida.


College football is in full swing, but fall baseball is here and heating up. The Red Sox lead the Wild Card chase, but still is struggling with their pitching, which seems to be always the case with Boston. Last night against the Chicago White Sox, the Red Sox blew a five run lead in the 4th inning because of bad pitching. Luckily for Boston, the defense picked up the slack and forced extra innings with a much needed run in the eighth. Red Sox end up winning the game as relief pitcher Josh Taylor came out in the bottom of the 10th for the save.

On a side note, a fan got hit in the back by a foul baseball. Hopefully the kid wasn’t hurt, but what are the chances of that happening? Apparently pretty damn good!


On September 11, 2001, I came home from a 12 hour night shift from Orange County EMS as a 911 Operator. Before going to bed, I turned on the television and was absolutely stunned as to what I was witnessing. I’ll never forget that day and I pray it never happens to this great nation ever again. God bless the United States of America. Check out some of the tributes below.

Never ever forget.
