At the PSG / Leicester City match. Pretty great so far. PSG with the PK, and their goalie is playing lights out 1-0 at the moment.

Patriots have an elite defense this season... Jimmy G will cruise. 3 wins! Brady back with a vengeance

Meh, Pats will be lucky to win their division this year. Defense will be average to above average. Offense will be stale until Tom gets back, and we likely see a decline in production from him this year.

Are you high? The patriots look fantastic this year, assuming no significant drop off from Brady, (no reason to assume otherwise) they're better than last season, offensively and defensively,  and the competition is worse.

Also thought you loved those odds, which if I understand correctly, the patriots are strong favorites for winning the superb owl

There is a reason to assume, given that he isn't getting younger. I'm not sure what looks fantastic about not having their best quarterback to start the season. They can't keep winning forever. They've had a great run, but they'll experience a drop eventually, like every team ever.

There is no reason to assume Brady, who has a great season last year considering injuries and a shitty line,  will have a sharp decline, and they've improved there team on all fronts.... don't really understand why you think they'll suck, especially considering most of their competition is downgrading

Never said they'll suck, but they won't be as good as the last two seasons. I'll be surprised if no one in the division gives them an actual challenge this year.

In other (more interesting, global sport) news.

Second day of the 4th test against Pakistan at the Oval.  Moeen Ali's century yesterday helped England claw back from 110 for 5 after our openers collapsed. Again the middle order & tail doing all the work, Bairstow-55 and Woakes-45.

England already 2-1 for the test, Pakistan need a win to draw. England finshed at 328 all out, Pakistan had to hold on for ten minutes before close of play but Aslam was trapped LBW by Broad for 3.

A lovely sunny day coverage just about to start on the BBC online (http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/cricket/36840121), work is slow, get in.

Edit; Well it's now 12.09, the Pakistani "night watchman" Yasir OUT! Caught Root, bowled Finn, that took longer than it should have.
The night-watchman isn't a nick name it's a position in cricket where a low order batsman comes in at the end of the day to stop better players being dismissed due to failing light, tiredness or the sniper fire that is allowed in the last quarter of an hour of the days play or even the first balls of the new day. 52 for 2.

I did forget about Bennett. That should pay off when Brady is back.

What's so good about the defense this year? I'm pretty sure it was better two years ago.

Well It's nearly 2.00 on a beautiful afternoon and Pakistan are 110 for 2, courtesy of England's fielders dropping 3 catches, appalling, don't get me wrong here, a cricket ball isn't like that spongy thing base ballers still need a square yard of padding to catch, think more of a lump of concrete wrapped in leather and only the keeper is allowed gloves (and they are full of ants), but they are supposed to have practised this shit!
Well at least the ball has started to swing a bit, hope yet.

Edit. 2.45, Moeen Ali on to bowl off spin as the ball softens. Azhar tries the sweep, seems to catch his pad, we call for LBW, Umpire says not out, England call for a review, checked with hotspot finds a white spot on Azhars glove and it’s given out caught, sweet. 143 for 3

Man City with a solid opening two showings to start the league.

Looking forward to that Man U match in a few weeks. Going to put Zlatan in his place.

I have two drafts this week. Looking forward to the 12-team, $100 buy in league. Can actually make a decent return. The other one is a scrubby $20 buy in but still fun.
