LeBron James scores 46 points as Lakers defeat Cleveland Cavaliers

If you thought he was slowing down at the age of 36 and in his 18th season you would be wrong !

Father Time isn’t catching up with this superman. Tonight Lebron was all over the court ending the night with 46 points , 6 assists and 8 rebounds. Sure he was a ball hog tonight but I will let that slide since he holds the record of the most assists in NBA history.

Andre Drummond was the highest scorer for the Cleveland CAVS tonight as he ended the game with 25 points , 1 assist and 17 rebounds. Lucky for the CAVS Andre was under that hoop ready to snatch that ball all 17 times. Osman ended the night with a solid 20 points and Sexton ended with 17 points.

Let’s just say LeBron has never disappointed me. I am just feeling sorry for myself as I can’t see him play live thanks to COVID-19. I am still grateful I can watch him on ESPN but it’s not the same watching his dunks , fade aways and scoring Triple doubles on tv as it is live.

The next game comes this Wednesday as the Lakers take on the 76ers. That will be a pretty good matchup as the 76ers have won 12 games this season and the Lakers have won 13. The game will be broadcasted on ESPN .

Kansas City Chiefs defeat Cleveland Browns !

What a game last night was ! The Cleveland Browns played tough against the Kansas Chiefs but they were unable to bring it on home even with the Chiefs quarterback out on concussion protocol mid game.

The Cleveland Browns have always been the underdogs. Always one of those teams that could never get it quite right. Well , that is until the entire team moved to Baltimore in 1995. Anybody remember that ?

The owner of the Cleveland Browns, Art Modell moved the entire roster of the Cleveland Browns to Baltimore to make the team of the Baltimore Ravens. Yes that is how the Baltimore Ravens started up their team ( from the entire Browns Roster ) and that year that Art Modell made that move his new team the Baltimore Ravens won the championship.

So how is it that when that same team played in Cleveland Ohio they couldn’t get to the playoffs but they make the move to Baltimore and become the Ravens that win a championship? Simply because of the Cleveland curse.

Everyone knows the curse. LeBron made history as he lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to their first championship in 2016 ending that 52 year curse of never ending loses. Let’s face it , if Lebron wasn’t part of that team in 2016 the CAVS never would have gotten in the playoffs. Every time Lebron sat out a game the CAVS would lose. Lebron earned that billboard !

Getting back to the Cleveland Browns , let’s just say they had a phenomenal year. They played better then most teams in the NFL this season and even knocked the Pittsburg Steelers out in the playoffs which stunned me. I guess it didn’t help when Ben Rothlisberger threw 4 interceptions that game. There are rumors that Ben is planning another year with the Steelers to give it one more run. Ben is a great quarterback but his last game against the Cleveland Browns would certainly have you wondering if his glory days are over.

Last night was the first night I actually watched a full game of the Chiefs. I never been a fan of them but their quarterback caught my attention. Patrick Mahomes is 25 years old and has already lead the Kansas Chiefs to a championship last season. This season it doesn’t look like he is slowing things down either. That entire team looks ready to win again this season. Their offense and defense is good , the quarterback is good , the kicker is solid. However , Mahomes suffered a concussion last night as the backup quarterback took over . The backup quarterbacks name is Chad Henne.

Usually the backup quarterbacks are not even near as good as the primary quarterback. However , Henne proved himself last night. His throws were just right as he continued to get his wide receiver and running back in just the right positions to end the night with a solid win.

After the Cleveland Browns lost to the Kansas Chiefs I watched Tom Brady who is now the quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Say what you want about Brady but the guy is the LeBron of football. He can scan the field in half a second and throw it to one of his guys. I don’t even know if he has to blink he throws it so fast. The Buccaneers defeated the New Orlean Saints last night. The Saints quarterback Drew Breeze might be leaving the NFL. There are rumors that last night would be his last game . Drew Breeze has won one championship with the Saints in his career. He is 42 years old and will end up in the hall of fame as one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history. However , when you compare his stats to Tom Brady who has 6 championships under his belt , and is 43 years old but still playing like he is 25 years old it’s crazy to think what an amazing career Brady has had. Brady looks like he is right on track to winning his 7th championship.

You can catch Tom Brady next Sunday as the Buccaneers take on Greenbay Packers at 3 pm eastern time on Fox and you can catch Kansas City Chiefs take on the Buffalo Bills next Sunday at 6:40 pm eastern time on CBS.

Pittsburg Steelers out of the 2021 playoffs. Loses to the Cleveland Browns !

The game will be over in less then 3 minutes but I thought I would share the news now . The Pittsburg Steelers lost to the Cleveland Browns. I thought I would never see the day of that happening. I guess it didn’t help that Ben Rothlisberger threw 4 interceptions.

I should have known how the game would end just by watching the first two minutes of the game. The Steelers lost the ball a few seconds after kickoff and the Browns ran into the end zone. I sat there watching my tv asking what happened because I blinked and missed it. Then they replayed it about 4 times because it was so unbelievable. Better luck next year Steelers !

I also found out today that JuJu is a free agent. I wonder if he will move on from the Steelers.

Congratulations Cleveland ! Maybe that city will have another championship. LeBron got the first one for the city. Maybe the Browns will get the next !

Covid Blues ?

Tired of being inside ? Tired of wearing masks ? Tired of running away from people coughing ? Tired of worrying about Covid germs being on your groceries ? Tired of wondering if that headache or congestion is Covid ?

Tired of not being able to do things you use to do such as attend a sporting event ? Go to the movies ? Sit down with a nice cup of hot coffee at the coffee shop as you browse your computer ? Tired of getting take out instead of sitting in a restaurant ?

Tired of football games being cancelled or delayed because players caught Covid ? Tired of worrying about going to your doctors appointment wondering if the seats , doorknobs , elevator buttons , and dressing rooms have been disinfected ?

Tired of feeling alone and in isolation ? Tired of feeling like a prisoner?

That is me !

While I love being alone sometimes , (because let’s face it , people can be pretty annoying ), I do feel alone sometimes. Sure I go to work and continue to do my grocery shopping and run some errands but I have felt that my isolation has lasted long enough.

I am ready to walk in the stores without my mask. I am ready to enjoy my coffee as I browse shops instead of enjoying it in my car.

However , 2019 wasn’t a total waste for me. I have picked up extra hours at work and I completed my third book Shadows of Her that is my best work yet ! I have spent a little more time reading and writing. I started a new podcast. I have been cooking at home more. I have learned new recipes and how to make lattes at home that taste pretty darn good !

I have also had the time to contemplate the changes that are coming in my life in 2021. For everyone out there feeling blue about Covid , try to use this time to self reflect and maybe try new things that you thought you never would !

Dallas Cowboys lose to NY Giants and out of playoffs

If you were hoping the Dallas Cowboys would make it to the playoffs then you will have to wait until next season. Dallas lost to the New York Giants with a score of 19 to 23 eliminating them from playoff contention.

The offense was absolutely terrible the first half of the game for the Cowboys. It seemed as if they couldn’t catch Daltons throws , Dalton getting sacked several times and when the offense finally caught a ball , they would make it a yard or two. The only thing keeping the Cowboys on the scoreboard was their kicker Zuerlien as he made three of his 3 field goal attempts. Then it was half time.

The beginning half looked a little more promising as Eziekel made a 62 yard drive and scored a Touchdown. Elliotts game this season has been a little off as he struggled to complete catches and score touchdowns . He has not been the usual Elliott we knew from the Ohio State days and his first two years with the Cowboys that have been phenomenal. Seeing this touchdown from him made me think back to his Ohio State game days when his “feed me “ actually felt like his road to promises of giving you a game you will remember .

The Cowboys were slowly catching up to the Giants as their offense started to wake up as they were coming to the realization that they need this win to have a chance in the playoffs. Then at the last final minute of the game Dalton throws an interception and at that second all of the Cowboys fans knew it was the end of the season for them.

All hopes of being in the playoffs next season will depend if Dak Prescott , who is a free agent , will get signed back to the Cowboys next season . After Daks injury hit is beyond clear that Dak can get this team to the playoffs. As I watched the Cowboys struggle all season I noticed the offense plays better when Dak is throwing the ball. Eziekel plays better when Dak is out there and so does Cooper.

For anyone who is curious who won the game between the Pittsburg Steelers and the Cleveland Browns, the Cleveland Browns took that game tonight as Ben Rothlisberger sat out and some of Pittsburgh tougher players sat out as well since the Steelers have already clenched their spot into the playoffs. Easy win for Cleveland tonight.

Better luck next year Dallas !
