Thursday Night Open Thread

If you’re interested, CC Sabathia and his wife Amber will appear on Good Morning America tomorrow to discuss his recently completed stay in an alcohol rehab treatment center. Here’s the teaser trailer. I’ll embed the video in the Weekend Open Thread, assuming it becomes available at some point. I hope Sabathia’s doing well. Addiction is an awful, awful thing.

Here is your open thread for tonight. The Browns and Bengals are the Thursday NFL game, plus the Islanders are playing as well. Talk about those games or anything else right here.

Wednesday Night Open Thread

Six years ago tonight, the Yankees clinched their 27th World Series title with a win over the Phillies. Hideki Matsui was named World Series MVP. The Yankees actually started the season 15-17 but were pretty much unstoppable after mid-May or so. Once Alex Rodriguez returned and Phil Hughes settled into the eighth inning, the 2009 Yankees had no weaknesses. They’re still the last AL team to win 100+ games, you know.

Anyway, here is your open thread for the evening. Not a whole lot going on in the sports world tonight. The Knicks and Nets are playing, and that’s pretty much it. Talk about either of those games or reminisce about the 2009 Yankees here. Go nuts.

Tuesday Night Open Thread

Earlier today in a Players’ Tribune post about his massive dog, Derek Jeter subtly confirmed his engagement to Hannah Davis, in case you were still wondering if the rumors are true. Here’s the ring. Jeter’s dog, an Italian Mastiff named Kane, is pretty much as big as he is nowadays. It looks like a pretty awesome dog.

Anyway, here is tonight’s open thread. All three local hockey teams are in action tonight but both of the basketball teams have an off-day. Talk about those games, Jeter’s dog, or anything else here.

Monday Night Open Thread

Welcome to the offseason. Well, the offseason started a few weeks ago for the Yankees, but now it’s the offseason for everyone. The Royals won the World Series last night and pretty soon a whole bunch of official hot stove stuff will start to happen. The offseason is fun, at least until January rolls around, when everything dies down.

Anyway, here is tonight’s open thread. Colts-Panthers is the Monday Night Football game and both the Knicks and Nets are playing as well. Talk about those games or anything else right here. Have at it.

Sunday Night Open Thread

We’ve reached the time of year when it starts getting dark out at like 4:30pm. Yuck. That means baseball is almost over. In fact, the season could end tonight. The Royals lead the Mets three games to one in the World Series, so every game from here on out is a possible clincher. I don’t care who wins, I just really want seven games, so go Mets, I guess.

Here is your open thread for the remainder of the weekend. The Royals and Mets will play Game Five tonight (Volquez vs. Harvey) and the late NFL game is the Packers and Broncos. Do the Broncos play every prime time game? It feels like it. The Islanders are in action as well, so talk about those games or anything else here. Just don’t be a jerk.

Saturday Open Thread

Happy Halloween, everyone. I was on the subway this afternoon with about a thousand little girls dressed as the princess from Frozen. She was princess, right? Probably. Anyway, here is tonight’s open thread. The Mets and Royals play Game Four of the World Series a little later (Matz vs. Young at 8pm ET on FOX), plus both the Knicks and Nets are in action. There’s also a ton of college football as well. Talk about whatever right here.

Friday Night Open Thread

At most, there are four more baseball games left this season. That stinks. Once the World Series is over, I’ll have a little more free time on my hands, so I’ll start posting the weekly collection of links each Friday like I did last offseason. That seemed to go over well. For now I’ll leave you with this month old Andy McCullough masterpiece on last year’s wildcard game, when Kansas City fell in love with baseball again. Just tremendous work from McCullough, the best beat writer in baseball.

Here is tonight’s open thread. The Mets and Royals will play Game Three of the World Series tonight (Syndergaard vs. Ventura at 8pm ET on FOX), plus the (hockey) Rangers and Nets are in action too. Talk about any of those games or anything else right here.
