What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
When I’m not watching sports, I’m a big fan of Turner Classic Movies. That’s because as a kid, I grew up on “Movie for a rained out ball game,” which in the 1970’s meant a lot of movies from the 40’s and 50’s. A lot of those movies feature prominently in my list of 225 essential films, and I will watch them whenever I can.
This also means I am susceptible to Mrs. J-Dub’s assertion that I’m secretly 87 years old. In fact, she’s the one who pointed out this Doppleganger. She’s the one who said to me that Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant looks “just like Josh Duhamel..you know, the guy from the ‘Transformers’ movies.” Judging by my blank facial expression, she immediately knew I had no idea what she was talking about.”
“Of course you never heard of him,” she said. “His movies were made after 1960.”
Then I punched her. Since Trump got elected, that’s legal now, right?

On a side note, the Chicago Bears were in town last weekend to eventually lose to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Believe it or not, Bears fans still travel, although I don’t know what for. I guess to get away from the cold.
Upon chatting with one of them over the bar, in a random moment of Tourette’s, he shouted “The Cubs have won the World Series! Can you believe that?”
They’re still pinching themselves. I guess erasing over a century of misery makes up for still having Jay Cutler as your quarterback.
Also, it helps that Chicagoans are the defintion of “sports chameleons.” Two years ago, Wrigley Field was full of Blackhawks jerseys, now the United Center is full of Cubs gear, in the 90’s it was all about the Bulls, and right now, a friend of mine can’t give away their Bears’ season tickets.
