Fetterman's fitting response after Republicans criticize him for the way he dresses in the Senate


Senator John Fetterman
I figure if I take up vaping and grabbing the hog during a live musical, they'll make me a folk hero.

Cardinals' pitcher Adam Wainwright reaches 200 wins

He's 42, so Father Time is going to close the door soon. And he's also been playing for St. Louis his entire career.

To be a shoo-in for Cooperstown, a starting pitcher used to need 300 wins, or close to it. But in today's game, pitchers don't rack up nearly as many innings due to bigger and more active bullpens.

I'm not saying Wainwright should be a Hall of Famer, but the criteria needs a rethink for the modern game. Even Max Scherzer is only at 214 career wins. Clayton Kershaw is at 209. Gerrit Cole has 143 wins!

With his final season winding down, Adam Wainwright was stuck on 198 wins for nearly three months.

And then in a span of seven days, he found that old form and reached a major milestone.

Wainwright earned his 200th win, pitching seven innings of four-hit ball in a vintage performance as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 1-0 on Monday night.

"For at least a night I was a real pitcher out there, the guy that I want to be," said Wainwright, who plans to retire after the season. "Seven innings, shutout, a couple of hits, got through a couple of tough ABs out there and made adjustments, worked in and out, up and down."


Looks like the Browns might be in the running back market

That was a nasty looking knee injury for Nick Chubb! Hopefully he bounces back in a few weeks but he could be gone for the season.

If it's really bad, there's a possibility of a trade for Jonathan Taylor (although he's supposed to be eligible in Week 5 after coming off of an injury himself), a trade for Cam Akers who the Rams are ready to part with, or the signing of free agents Kareem Hunt or Leonard Fournette.

Are you trying to sleep? (Part II)

Several days ago, I posted a video of a cat that showed no intention of letting its owners sleep peacefully. Out of a sense of fair play, here's a dog that is cut from the same cloth. Enjoy!

Is there anything out of place in this kitchen?

How is Aaron Rodgers going to heal his torn Achilles? By listening to dolphins make love!

I'm assuming he isn't referring to any Miami Dolphins players?!?

In his first appearance since the Achilles injury on "The Pat McAfee Show," Rodgers revealed his new secret weapon in the healing process, the love-making sounds of dolphins.

Your eyes arenít deceiving you. This is a real thing that he talked about on national television. Here is the full quote.

ďIím looking into a number of modalities. There are ideas that some of the noises from the dolphins when they love-make ó the frequency of that is actually healing to the body.Ē

Rodgers has made it clear that he plans to come back and is using any means necessary in order to heal his injury. An Achilles injury at his age leads to a murky future. The research on the injury for someone his age isnít conclusive.


Pro players who have spent their entire career with a single team

Do you admire the loyalty to a franchise or do you not blame a player who moves on to wherever the best contract comes from next?

NBA: Dirk Nowitzki -- 21 seasons with the Dallas Mavericks

MLB (tie): Brooks Robinson -- 23 seasons with the Baltimore Orioles
Carl Yastrzemski -- 23 seasons with the Boston Red Sox

NFL: Lou Groza -- 21 seasons with the Cleveland Browns

NHL: Alex Delvecchio -- 24 seasons with the Detroit Red Wings

Who is that good looking fella in the mirror?


ReThug strategy: Invent a crime while condoning actual crime


David Frum

Emerging Republican consensus: having a drug-addicted child is an impeachable offense - but trying to mount a coup d'etat and overturn the Constitution by violence is not.

Did you call me a pig?

I take it as a compliment.
