The San Francisco Giants are the most clutch team in sports, it’s not even close. Last night they won their 10th straight elimination game. Colin calls them the cockroaches of professional sports. You just can’t kill them. If they win Game 4 tonight, all the pressure shifts to the Cubs.
“This is what the San Francisco Giants do. They do it better than anybody in American sports, in any sport. You try to bury them, they’re the cockroaches of major league sports in America.”
If you look at the numbers, Cam Newton and Andrew Luck’s statistics are almost identical. The public perception is that Cam has been a success and Luck has been a disappointment. Colin thinks Luck has been more consistent with less talent, but public perception isn’t always correct, or fair.
Colin thinks Conor McGregor’s $150,000 fine for his water bottle throwing, pre-fight press conference outburst. That’s half of the Patriots Spy Gate fine! For throwing water bottles? The press conference probably increased the gate for Mcgregor/Diaz 2. This makes no sense.
It’s been announced that Colin Kaepernick will start this week against the Bills. Colin lays out a scenario where the Niners win a close game that ends with Kaepernick taking a knee to run out the clock. Irony, thick.
