Connelly’s Top Ten: Posse!

1. Patriots vs. 49ers:

· Belichick 230 wins vs. Bill Walsh 92 wins

· Gronk 69 touchdowns to Dwight Clark’s 48

· Brady 22 playoff wins to Montana 16 playoff wins

· QB’s on the active roster this week – their draft position: Gabbert – 10 / Kapernick – 36 | Garappollo 62 / Brady 199

2. Around the NFL:

If I’m a player in Mexico City I don’t –

· Have a Trump bumper sticker on my suitcase?

· Don’t watch Cartel Land – watch 10

· Don’t pick anyone up hitch hiking on the way home

3. Celtics / Bruins:

· Nets 4-7 isn’t helping the cause

· Bruins vs. Wild 1-0 – that sounds like a fun and exciting investment in tickets

4. College Football:

* No locks but I like – Navy vs East Carolina (lets keep rolling the over) 66 / TCU giving 4.5 to Oklahoma State

* The over-under in the BC U Conn game has an over under of 36.5 – that should be a fun game

* Top four teams against top 20 teams – Alabama 6-0 / Ohio State 3-0 / Clemson 2-0 / Michigan 1-0

Over the University Houston’s last 16 games they are 7-0 against top twenty-five teams including the #3 / #5 / #9 teams

5. Betts got hooked by Trout lovers:

Runs – Betts 122 / Trout 123

RBI – Betts 113 / Trout 100

HR – Betts 31 / Trout 29

AVG – Betts .318 / Trout .315

Assists – Betts 14 / Trout 7

Gold Glove – Betts – yes / Trout – no

6. Rick Porcello – Only the fourth Red Sox to win Cy Young:

· 2016 – Porcello 22-4 – 3.15 ERA

· 2000 – Pedro 18-6 – 1.74 ERA

· 1999 – Pedro 23-4 – 2.07 ERA

· 1991 – Clemens 18-10 – 2.62 ERA

· 1986 – Clemens 24-4 – 2.48 ERA

· 1967 – Lonborg 22-9 – 2.46 ERA

7. Old School:

Best left side of an infield ever – Orioles

Brooks Robinson – 16 Gold Gloves

Mark Belanger – 8 Gold Gloves

8. Amazing Sad Stat:

The first man killed in Vietnam Richard Fitzgibbons from Stoneham / Last man to be killed Charles McMahon of Woburn

9. Just a Little Bit Outside:

Arlington Cemetery fun facts:

· Actor / Veteran buried in Arlington – Charles Durning, Lee Marvin, Audie Murphy

· Three of the five flag raisers at Iwo Jima are buried in Arlington

· The property was owned by Martha Washington’s Great Granddaughter who married Robert E Lee whose family later sued for the land back against Secretary of War Robert Todd Lincoln (Lincoln’s son)

· The first soldier buried William Christman died from the measles

10. Randomocity:

* This is not a joke – Spoke to Capital One on purchase protection for something stolen – they said I was covered until I told them it was from a car which they said sorry we only cover items taken from a plane or SPACE CRAFT? I told them I guess Buzz Aldrin is covered

* Sixers last four years 49-208

* Hysterical that 75% of the election protestors arrested in Portland didn’t even vote – just like Mike Evans and Kapernick

* Vinnie Pazienza movie – He isn’t a top 250 boxer of all time – not much appeal

*Men killed on their first day in Vietnam – 997 / soldiers killed on their last day 1,448 (hlntv)
