The Baltimore Ravens got a straightforward win over the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football with Lamar Jackson throwing his 100th career passing TD, the Indianapolis Colts fired head coach Frank Reich and replaced him with ESPN analyst and former All-Pro lineman, Jeff Saturday, and the Houston Astros celebrated their World Series with a parade featuring a familiar sight.
MINTY BETS: Probably to no one's surprise, the Ravens beat up the Saints.
MINTY BETS: Lamar Jackson threw his 100th career passing touchdown to tight end Isaiah Likely. Kenny and Drake rushed for a pair of touchdowns. And the Ravens defense kept Andy Dalton and Alvin Kamara mostly in check. You know the Ravens will take a nice business as usual win any day.
- Nothing personal, it's just business.
MINTY BETS: I don't know what's going on in the Colts organization, but it looks real messy from the outside.
- What is going on?
MINTY BETS: The 3, 5, 3 and 1 Colts fired head coach, Frank Reich. And they replaced him with Jeff Saturday.
- Hey, I know him.
MINTY BETS: You should. He was the Colts longtime Pro Bowl center. His most recent gig, though, is on ESPN as an analyst. Oh, and he doesn't have any professional coaching experience whatsoever.
- What did you say?
MINTY BETS: You heard me. In the span of three weeks, starting quarterback, Matt Ryan got benched, offensive coordinator, Marcus Brady got canned, and now this. Best of luck to Mr. Saturday. Let's see if he can get it done on Sundays.
- My money's on no.
MINTY BETS: By now you surely know the Houston Astros won the World Series. I know, they're not exactly the most popular pro sports team around. It's almost like a recent history of cheating makes you unlikable for some reason.
- You could say that again.
MINTY BETS: But in a tradition as old as dirt, the Astros had a parade. And as usual it looked like one big drunken mess.
MINTY BETS: But we all know that no Astros parade is complete without someone dropping their hat out of a parking garage, only to have it returned to them. Apparently that's the thing they're going to keep doing at these parades in Houston. [? Her ?] fingers much?
