(“The Ten” is not a top ten, but ten items worth being included in The TEN)
1.) “I will be signing my letter of intent to play in the 2016 Turkey Bowl on Thanksgiving morning this Friday.”—MVS commenter “NWO”
2.) On this date in 1983 Stanford quarterback John Elway is selected as the first overall pick of the Baltimore Colts.
3.) Former West Covina standout Chris Solomon turns 22 today.
4.) On this date in Dodger history in 1949 Gene Hermanski, Jackie Robinson and Gil Hodges convert a triple play in the third inning of a 5-2 victory over the Boston Braves.
5.) San Marino quarterback (junior to be) Blake Cabot’s 2015 stats: 24 of 32 for 348yds, 3 Tds, 2 Ints.
6.) “Sam Bradford should seek psychological comfort with Kelly Ripa as they are both up against it in a similar way. Godspeed to both of you!”—Dennis Miller
7.) Monrovia quarterback (senior to be) Richie Schroeder’s 2015 stats: 5 of 13 for 74yds, Td.
8.) New York Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud has been placed on the disabled list with a strained right rotator cuff. The team hopes can heal quickly without surgery and won’t cause a lengthy layoff.
9.) The last time the Los Angeles Rams (not the St. Louis Rams) drafted a quarterback in the first round was in 1964…and his name was Bill Munson (Utah State)…This means in the common draft era of the NFL, the Los Angeles Rams have never taken a quarterback in the first round.
10.) “I finally caved in and bought a Kindle copy and just finished it over the weekend…Good news is I didn’t regret the purchase. Book read fast and represented pretty well what modern teenage boys feel these days.”—MVS commenter “Too Briefly” on Joe T.’s high school football novel “Tangent Dreams” (available through Amazon)
