These weeks come so rarely but this was a rare week for MWG. The Red Sox won seven games to extend their winning streak to 11. They have clinched a wild card berth and have reduced their magic number to one. They scored the winning run like this tonight.
The Patriots beat Houston 27-0 on Thursday. The Pats winning at home is not unusual but it was not expected when Brady was out and then the second stringer went down leaving a rookie to start on a short week. We saw the Pat beat Houston in Houston last year but they had Brady and Gronk and Houston had QB problems. This year, except for a cameo by Gronk, it was all different. Houston had a QB and the Pats did not. Now the Pats have a two game lead in the division while Brady is waiting to join the team.
Arsenal beat Chelsea in the Premiership 3-0 and, of lesser interest, Nottingham Forest 4-0 in the EPL Cup. Chelsea has been Arsenal’s nemesis in recent years. Even last year Arsenal finished second and Chelsea finished tenth, Chelsea won both meetings. It was Arsenal’s first win over Chelsea since 2011.
We are not big NCAA fans but it was nice that Wisconsin beat Michigan State and the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse won. The only downer this week was that the king, Arnold Palmer died. There are heartbreaks to come but we can enjoy this week.
