Sports Boxers & Briefs 10/19/09 Edition

The Dodgers and Angels over the weekend put themselves in a hole. The Angels moreso down 0-2 to the Yankees play at 1 P.M. and hope to win one today. The Dodgers got walloped last night 11-0 and did the right thing when down 6-0 and started planning for tonight's game. The Angels cannot go down 0-3 to the Yanks and the Dodgers cannot go down to the Phillies 3-1 either. Pivotal games today.

In football, Tom Brady was Tom Brady as the Patriots rolled over the Titans 59-0. Brett Favre pulled out another one for the Minnesota Vikings beating the Ravens who have now lost 3 in a row. The win less Chiefs beat the hapless Redskins and in the battle of the unbeaten, the New Orleans Saints beat the New York Giants in a game that was not close. The upset of the day was the Raiders holding the Eagles to 9 points to win. Wow.

Last week, we posted a video of Fox Sports going after Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo in a cartoon. We knew the video was harsh on Jessica and her weight and was soon pulled. Burger King, who sponsors the segment apologized to Jessica over it. Shame on the sports reporter who claimed the sent Jessica a grip of Whoppers to make up for it.-Dr.FB
