Daly Dose #154 The NFL midseason review

On the Daly Dose this week, we are trying to figure out what has been a wild and surprising NFL season, at the halfway point. Clint is joined by a longtime caller of the show to try to sort it all out. Which teams are the true contenders, and which are the pretenders as we come down the stretch to the postseason? We give our picks for the MVP, Rookie of the Year, and Coach of the Year, as well as who we think will be going to Super Bowl LII!

The Houston Astros won the World Series over the Los Angeles Dodgers, and we have some thoughts on what their big win means.

We had a few upsets in college football, and one major conference could be getting left out of the College Football Playoff because of them.

And with the Astros winning their first title in franchise history, we take a look at the Top 5 next hard luck teams that we would like to see win a championship!

Cubs fans get another bag full of rocks for Halloween

Chicago Cubs fans were hoping this year would finally be different.

They put on their costumes just like they have every season since 1908.

But they thought this year, they might actually come home with some candy.

Yet for some reason that is completely unknown, while other trick or treaters had their bags filled with all kinds of candy and treats, Cubs fans received nothing but rocks.

House after house, it was the same old thing that has been tormenting Cubbies fans for years.

“I got five pieces of candy! said Dodgers fans.

“I got a chocolate bar!” said Indians fans.

“I got a package of gum!” said Cardinals fans.

But just like clockwork, even in their most hopeful of Halloween nights, Cubs fans were left saying the same thing that they have said house after house and year after year.

“I got a rock.”

Their misery didn’t end there.

This morning, this reporter encountered a number of Cubs fans that had fallen asleep outside with their bag of rocks, while waiting once again for the Great Pumpkin.

“It’s okay.” I encouraged them. “I have done some stupid things in my life too.”

“STUPID?” they screamed. “What do you mean “stupid”? Just wait till next year! You’ll see! Next year at this same time, we’ll find a pumpkin patch that is *real* sincere and we’ll sit in that pumpkin patch until the Great Pumpkin appears. He’ll rise out of that pumpkin patch and he’ll fly through the air with his bag of toys. The Great Pumpkin will appear and We’ll be waiting for him! We’ll be there! We’ll be sitting there in that pumpkin patch… and we’ll see the Great Pumpkin. Just wait and see!. We’ll see that Great Pumpkin. We’ll SEE the Great Pumpkin! Just you wait! The Great Pumpkin will appear, and we’ll be waiting for him!”

NBA Preview: The Central Division preview

Eastern Conference

NBA Central

Central Division

(Predicted order of finish)

 

1. Cleveland Cavaliers

The city of Cleveland has been wishing for a championship for 52 years and LeBron James fulfilled his promise to deliver one. Of course, they were really hoping for a ring for the Browns or the Indians. So it’s sort of like when you opened your Christmas present that you thought was a new Xbox , but it turned out to be a sweater. I mean it’s a nice sweater but…

 

2. Indiana Pacers

Larry Bird was not content with just making the playoffs last year, so he fired head coach Frank Vogel, and retooled his roster yet again. He hired Nate McMillan and then made moves to bring Jeff Teague and Thaddeus Young to Indiana.

This group actually looks pretty good, at least on paper.

The problem is they look pretty undersized in real life.

 

3. Detroit Pistons

In 2014 Stan Van Gundy took over as the head coach and president of basketball operations of the Pistons, and took a team that had gone 29-53 before he arrived, to the playoffs last season.

Detroit was 44-38 and showed that Van Gundy is capable of turning most anything around.

Well…except for Andre Drummond’s horrible free throw shooting.

 

4. Chicago Bulls

Just one year ago, we were all thinking that maybe Chicago could battle with Cleveland, and be a contender in the Eastern Conference.

Now Derrick Rose is gone, Pau Gasol is gone, Joakim Noah is gone, and the Bulls are coming off of a dismal season in which they were barely above .500.

What a difference a year makes.

But one thing hasn’t changed in that year.

Dwayne Wade didn’t get any younger.

 

5. Milwaukee Bucks

The Bucks struggled last season with higher expectations, but don’t be surprised if this group responds with a strong showing this year.

They have a good young nucleus with Jabari Parker, Greg Monroe, Michael Carter-Williams and Giannis AtekuAntetonkouAntetenkAnktekomAntentokunum…the Greek Freak.
