Monza, US Open, NFL And Other Sports Trash Talk

I’ve been tempted to effectively repost the entire piece on the ten year anniversary of my 2011 50 year anniversary post on the 1961 Italian Grand Prix, first American Champion in history (there have only ever been two), on the weekend of the 60th anniversary of the same. But we often scold people for wasting electrons and column inches needlessly. So, here is a link to my September 10, 2011 post “Italian Grand Prix 1961-2011: Monza, Death of von Trips & A Yankee Champion”. Everything is there. If you like F1 and have not seen it before, think you will like it. Tomorrow may be the 12th of September, but it is truly the 60th anniversary for the Italian GP at Monza. Qualifying was lackluster, but Monza truly is the Temple Of Speed on the F1 circus.

The NFL kicked off Thursday night with a fantastic game between the ‘Boys and Bucs. Both teams played really well, but never give the ball back to Brady with 1:20 left on the clock. Lot of great games on tap for Sunday.

Talk about anything and everything, sports or not. The relentless 9/11 hagiography is mind numbing. Thanks goodness for college football and the absolutely amazing Women’s Final at the US Open that is about to, in minutes, come off between two amazing and captivating teenagers, Leyla Fernandez, a 19 year old (only by less than a week!) takes on former Canadian and current Brit, Emma Raducanu. They are truly amazing players and young personalities. Captivating is actually an understatement. Take a look at them, you will not be sorry.

  3. Peterr says:

    A week after the stupid two-laps-behind-the-pace-car race that was the Belgian Grand Prix, FIFA told F1 “Hold my beer.”

    Brazil v Argentina had been pegged as a Match To See as soon as the schedule came out. There is a break in every soccer league (except MLS in the US!) for international matches like these, and both Brazil and Argentina have a bunch of players who play for European clubs. COVID, however, threw a wrench into all of that.

    The UK has Brazil on their “red” list, meaning people are strongly discouraged from traveling there, and if you do go, you have to quarantine for something like 14 days when you get back along with rigorous testing. The English Premier League, therefore, made it clear that they did NOT want their players going back to Brazil for this big match, as it would force them to miss at least one or two games upon their return. Brazil, in a move driven more by political spite than scientific concerns, put a reciprocal policy in place, so that anyone who had been in the UK would have to quarantine for 14 days before going out in public in Brazil.

    Faced with all this, the Brazilian national team manager decided not to select any players from the EPL for this big match. The Argentinian manager, on the other hand, selected four players for his squad who regularly play in the EPL. When these four flew in from a third country [England to X, and a day or two later on to Brazil], they did not properly fill out the “where have you traveled lately?” medical forms, and made their way through customs to the team’s hotel. Word got around, however, and seven minutes after the match started, the pitch was invaded by Brazilian medical officials, who wanted to arrest and deport the four EPL players. The Argentinian team locked themselves in their dressing room, and a farce continued on the playing field. After about an hour, FIFA announced that the match was cancelled, and the Brazilian team put on an impromptu practice for the fans in the stands. The highlight was when the starting goal keeper for Brazil played in the field, and put a scorcher from well outside the penalty box past the #2 keeper (who is no slouch himself).

    That was the *second* weirdest thing that happened in World Cup qualifying that day.

    Over in Africa, in the capitol of Guinea, the Moroccan team got up and prepared to go to the stadium for their qualifying match, only to be told by their hosts that their match was cancelled. The reason: a military coup was taking place. They were told to stay in the hotel until a military escort could be arranged to get them safely to the airport. They did, it was, and they made it home safely.

    Ah, the Beautiful Game!

    Go Giants! À ragtag crew of non-stars with the best record in baseball. Can’t shake those pesky Dodgers.

    Not a dedicated tennis fan, but I’m rooting for the Canadian Leylah Fernandez after watching her quarterfinal win.

    Quick trip back to Brittany for my mother in law’s funeral. (We were here just a few weeks ago). Sad but not tragic: she was nearly 91 and in failing health and cognition. At least she held out for us to say goodbye in August.

  5. Ed Walker says:

    College football is nearly unwatchable. Notre Dame games last a minimum of 3.5 hours, and more when there’s overtime. I haven’t watched a game all the way through in years.

    • Ginevra diBenci says:

      Same feeling here, Ed. Notre Dame’s smothering omnipresence doesn’t help, either.

      I prefer the pro game, but speaking of relentless hagiography (bmaz, above), I found yesterday’s NFL announcers indulging in their own warping nostalgia–for example, lauding how Americans always come together to help each other, which might be news to many Muslim citizens then (and now), Asian Americans now (and then), and Black and brown Americans for the past 402 years. I know that it’s the job of the “color” commentator on a national sports broadcast to make connections and muse. I just hate when the musings start to sound like political talking points.

      • bmaz says:

        All the military pageantry and flyover nonsense gets really tiring, as does much of the other sideshow, both college and pro. I miss Keith Jackson with the simple “Whoa Nellie!”

        So, tonight, I am going to try out the new MNF alternate cast on ESPN2 of Peyton and Eli Manning just analyzing and gabbing about the game. We’ll see how it goes, but they are both pretty personable and funny.

  6. bmaz says:

    Leylah Fernandez lit up the women’s draw of the US Open. Maybe the entire US Open. But Raducanu was maybe even more spectacular, even if, over the last fortnight, less on the radar. But, holy cow, she was just amazing. Women’s tennis will be in good hands if these young women, and those like them, take the mantle. What a show in Flushing Meadow.

    • Ed Walker says:

      Did it seem like Fernandez’ serves were a lot softer than Radacanu’s? Fernandez’ serves seemed to have a lot of spin, but Raducanu seemed to handle them really well.

      • chicago_bunny says:

        Fernandez’s serve average is about 10 mph slower than Radacanu’s, from the stats I see online.

        The poise shown by these two young women yesterday was remarkable. Though Radacanu won in straight sets, they seemed more evenly matched than the score would suggest.

        • bmaz says:

          Right? All hats off to Raducanu, and she fully earned every bit of it. But it was no rout. For a straight set match, it was mesmerizing and great, and could have turned at any moment. I love both these women, and hope they both are around for a good long time.

      • bmaz says:

        Adding that, yes, Fernandez’s serve is a little slower than Raducanu’s, but neither are real burners. Fernandez can place hers fairly well, and is a lefty, which can distract rightys. There are all kinds of female tennis players that won a lot without scorching serves. Chris Evert, Hingis, etc., even Seles. But those speeds are effectively the same or less than Fernandez’s. Her height, and therefore range, may be a bigger problem. But need not be with her speed and court coverage.

  7. drouse says:

    After Silverstone, I expected to hear a lot of debate about the sprint format but that really didn’t happen because everybody was too busy trying to assign blame for what happened the next day. Now that there has been two of them, my opinion is a resounding meh. It’s just one more chance for Murphy to reach in and stir the pot. However, it is an ill wind that blows no one any good. Lewis gets to start the race staring at the ass end of both Mclarens.

    • bmaz says:

      I am a big meh too. It IS real racing, which is cool, but it just does not seem right. And who thinks Verstappen would not have taken Bottas if he didn’t know he would start from P1 anyway?

      • drouse says:

        I wouldn’t be surprised if Max had instructions not to unnecessarily risk the car. This matter of power units looks like a real problem in strategic management. As far as I know Max is on his third unit due to bad wrecks. I don’t know about Lewis but I don’t recall his car being bunged up to any great extent so he might only be on his second. With the drivers championship being so close, it might matter to be able to choose the timing of the penalty rather than having forced upon you.

  8. Rapier says:

    For the third year running I am calling for the immediate firing of Matt Nagy because of his use of the bill cap. It’s totally unacceptable for a head coach. It’s also profoundly symbolic, of something, which I’ll leave up to you. I’ll spare the picture here, view one at your own risk.
    Otherwise this got a chuckle a year or two ago. The real star of this is Davey Whitsell. He’s killer. “When I first GOT to the Bears” From Shelby MI where he got 16 varsity letters, then went to Indiana. Huh? Go figure. Sealed the Bears conference championship and championship games with interceptions in 63, Became the Saints first All Star and lived the rest of his life in the Big Easy. (With Kup!)

  9. P J Evans says:

    Lovely. There’s a fire along I5 north of Castaic. It’s closed between Castaic and CA138. (The fire’s currently about 400 acres. From the one pic I saw, it’s on the southbound side.)

  10. Rugger9 says:

    I guess Norvell is back on the hot seat after losing to Jacksonville State tonight in Tallahassee. FSU had some work to do but this was a stinker, and FWIW Miami (FL) needed a miracle to win as well.

    At least USC’s losing at the half (in the Pac-12, everyone hates USC).

  11. Eureka says:

    The Eagles are Having Fun.

    Carson Wentz is not my problem.


    this is a feeling at once breezier than relief and more expansive because it’s (1) shared with millions; (2) covaries with the number of obstreperous incidents x unit time. Whew, dodged _that_ last obstinacy/injury campaign! (Though I expect he’s pouring all of his Will into Not Vaccinating because he has to cede some control over his game and take coaching for a change to make his Big Comeback — and Godspeed to ya, Ginger Jesus).

    • Savage Librarian says:

      Speaking of how things Wentz:

      I have a story tangentially related to the Colts. When I first left DOD and went to work for the City, I created a flyer for the library’s budget presentation entitled, ‘How Jacksonville Can Attract a Major League Football Team by Increasing the Jacksonville Public Library’s Book Budget.’

      I compared per capita book expenditure for libraries in cities with the teams Houston Oilers, Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Colts, Indianapolis Colts (which offered an increased book budget to its library, thus securing the team, haha!) and Jacksonville’s book budget (which was woefully dismal compared to the others.) It received a big laugh from the budget review team, got their attention, and secured a 20% increase for the the library’s book budget. Sadly, later that increase was reduced. And that’s why the Jags still are struggling today, haha!

      And speaking to cronyism’s defiance of democratic processes, when it came time for performance reviews and justifications for a raise, I used that as one of the examples for why I should receive one. But the establishment put up significant resistance, wanting to keep all the goods for themselves. So, I said fine, but don’t expect anything else like this from me anymore. That’s when they relented. I guess you might say they had a come to Jesus moment about the concept of sharing.

        • Savage Librarian says:

          Hey, BSL, that particular analysis did not include New England. Baltimore had almost 3 times the per capita book budget as Jax back then, though. And Indianapolis had 6 cents more than Baltimore. Houston had only about 1.5 times Jax.

          Surprisingly, Atlanta was the clear leader then. I do know that for many years the state of Ohio consistently had some of the most award winning libraries. But I have no idea how things are these days for any libraries.

          Since I’m here, I want to mention how much I appreciate the literary comments and references you make from time to time!

      • Eureka says:

        It’s really funny (in the also cry sense, if we’re going for the symbolism and the deep story) that this story related to Jax on this day of their loss to moribund turpitude Texans.

        I am so proud you led the way & stood your ground for just compensation.

  12. JohnForde says:

    I have been a Vikings fan for over 50 years. Now led by anti-vaxxer Kirk Cousins, on each offensive play I hope for a violent sack with Cousin’s severed maskless head rolling right into the Vikings bench. Dalvin Cook, Harrison Smith & Adam Theilen all anti-vax. Any or all could become HermanCainAward winners.

    • madwand says:

      Herman Cain Awards, that is just hilarious when you first hear it, but it is also regrettable and preventable when you have a more sober reflexion on it. As Trumpsters get interviewed more and more are replying with political reasons for not getting vaccinated and R’s are literally picking a hill to die on.

      • JohnForde says:

        I am a little conflicted about the Herman Cain Award but I believe at it’s core it is not about humiliating the dead it’s about terrifying the living into doing the right thing and getting vaccinated.

  13. D Orehek says:

    Absolutely the most thrilling US Open in decades: several men’s and women’s matches had me jumping up and down in front of screens, energized by the display of resilience in all players, especially the newer recruits.
    Spirit lifting much needed.

    For the first time in recorded history, gambling ads will outnumber pickup truck ads.


    I agree [for once] with Biebs, re King Roger the Clown and his rule changes totally screwing up what used to be football. Great minds think alike, Turbo Tom.

    I’m turning off the box and going to a memorial celebration for a friend. It’s a beautiful day here so it’ll be in the back of the home/business. I’m told they have at least two bands laid on.

    This friend got every penny’s worth from his ticket. And, Gawd, do I [and the thousands whose lives he touched] miss him.

      • scribe says:

        Y’know, when you go to a “celebration of life” and the beer cooler is a canoe full to the gunwales with ice, beer [and soft drinks and water] and over 100 people are smiling, laughing, recounting good stories and getting good live music and there’s no parking for blocks around because if the party, it’s ok. We all miss him terribly. We all loved him. We remember he was a crochety, cranky, abrasive, welcoming and loving character who was never a dull moment and always up for fun.
        A week or so ago, while opening the store, one of his sons was telling me about him visiting the son in a dream a night or two prior. All ok on the other side, playing with his dogs.
        All ok.

        • bmaz says:

          That sounds cool. Am in no hurry to, but if I gotta go, no church junk, want the canoe full of ice and booze for everybody. What you describe actually sounds perfect.

        • Eureka says:

          That’s my kind of party. Glad you had hours more of good drink and food with your friends in kind, and RIP to the ‘host.’

    • Eureka says:

      Missed this one — thanks.

      (Did catch Joe Judge throwing down the challenge flag on an … automatically reviewed scoring play, however, among other Giants-like things — speaking to news from their NFCE compatriots)

      I see there’s an update from the reporter saying it’s caught rain, sounds like they need to treat their storage tanks if it’s getting that funky.

      How’d Heinicke do?

      • Rugger9 says:

        Well, the Kitties look good enough to beat the Vikings in the Karma Bowl. They missed out on the onside, but got the ball back with 52 seconds left and gave it up on downs with twelve left on the SF 24.

        If this isn’t yet another indictment of the “prevent defense” I don’t know what is.

  15. Rugger9 says:

    For those wondering where the former guy was, he apparently parachuted into the NYPD 17th Precinct (midtown, I guess) around 1:25 but as usual his remarks were all about him. It was so bad that even Faux fact-checked him. Typical lack of planning, and I would hope that the NYPD would not like that they were being used as props on this remembrance day (of all days) in a tacky CYA exercise because of the heat from DJT’s no-show at Ground Zero. It’s also worth noting that DJT is the only President never to visit the USS Arizona Memorial since it opened. So much for loving the troops.

    • P J Evans says:

      I wonder how many of those present for that photo-op were NYPD on 9/11. Kerik, yeah, but I best most were not. (A distinct lack of masks on everyone.)

    • Geoguy says:

      Didn’t Trump visit the USS Arizona Memorial on 11-3-17 on his way to Asia? Even worse for the former guy than not visiting , he didn’t understand why he should visit. From the book “A Very Stable Genius,” he reportedly asked “What’s this a tour of?”: Trump barely understood the significance of an iconic Pearl Harbor memorial during a private tour.”

  16. bmaz says:

    Eureka – Wentz did not look horrible I guess, but certainly not great, and certainly not like a winning QB. Philly and Hurts, however, seemingly were great.

    • Eureka says:

      When a record NFL cap-hit for a non-rostered player is *self care*…

      The Eagles and all their baby coaches and rooks & such did alright! So refreshing to count (anew) on halftime adjustments, good game-planning. One of Hurts’ best throws — a TD dart into *so tight coverage* — won’t make the reels because it got called back on a penalty (made good on the ~ next play, though). They schemed the game for ATL’s deficiencies and it worked. And contra all the talking heads (but for Romo) & moneylines (for that matter). I was worried w Hurts facing a 2x SB-winning defensive coordinator known to bring the house that it might become an ugly win but it was good, decisive.

      They still have to work some rust off (penalties) — mostly skipped the preseason/kept scheme hidden — but a nice day.

  17. Peterr says:

    Hamilton and Verstappen sure had a wild day today. From the Guardian:

    Hamilton had exited from his pit stop, emerged wheel to wheel with Verstappen and the pair went into the first chicane together. Hamilton had his nose ahead but Verstappen had the pace to try to pass on the outside of turn one and as they entered turn two with Verstappen’s car riding over the high sausage kerbs he was pitched on to Hamilton’s car, with both grinding to a halt in the gravel, the Red Bull still perched on top of Hamilton’s Mercedes.

    Verstappen climbed out, glanced at Hamilton in his cockpit and immediately strode away. The accident was life-threatening. Verstappen’s car had ridden over the back of Hamilton’s with his right rear wheel rolling over the roll hoop and descending on to Hamilton’s head but crucially being diverted enough from a full impact by the halo cockpit protection device, once more definitively proving its worth.


    The incident was investigated after the race and the stewards deemed Verstappen was “predominantly to blame for the collision” and awarded him a three-place grid penalty for the next round in Russia.

    Let us give thanks for the effectiveness of the halo.

  18. Bay State Librul says:

    Mack Jones just scored his first TD. They offered him the ball but he refused. I guess he is “all business “ Good sign/bad sign?

    • Eureka says:

      Keep an eye on his left knee, BSL. He started wearing that brace when your Patsies were down here for joint practices/ game — which could be of no consequence or interest — but I noticed his knee “melted” in a biomechanically unusual way when he went down once (and he was fine after). Point is maybe he has loose ligaments or jelly knees or something or nothing but I am an early spotter of ~ off QB movements.

      I was interested to see him/them play but didn’t get that game — hope he did/does well!

      Adding: his former teammate DeVonta Smith was similarly unconcerned with where his first TD catch ball went, told the press that it ~ “would find [him]”.

      Nonchalant, all-business like you say Bama boys.

  19. Molly Pitcher says:

    We shall not discuss the Pac 12 this week,( G.D. Cal Bears).

    BUT, The Giants are still on top of the baseball world and the Niners managed to preserve the win (no style points). Jared Goff (another former Cal QB) is going to make the Lions much more respectable this year, Go Bears !. So, all in all, a very good weekend !!

    Additionally, my son’s Fantasy Team kicked butt, so I won’t have to tip toe around him !! He is not a good loser.

    • Rugger9 says:

      You spend a lot of time yelling at the TV. Musgrave was the reason Cal lost to Nevada because he went away from the running game that was working to the dink and stink wide screen passes (which weren’t blocked properly) and forgetting he has tight ends that are allowed to catch the ball. Given how Stanford beat USC, I do not have high hopes for getting our Axe back but you never know.

      • Molly Pitcher says:

        Our household has come to the decision that Wilcox is not the man to get the job done. We also think a new AD is called for. The play calling is absolutely pathetic. Let’s not talk about the Axe for a while. Each week is painful enough.

        I am praying we beat Sac State at this rate.

        • Rugger9 says:

          Long ago, there was a QB named J Torchio who specialized in what I called the bisector pass, since it bounced precisely halfway to the receiver. But that impediment vanished when playing the Cardinal, for which we are all eternally grateful.

  20. Bay State Librul says:

    Medvedev is one cool dude.
    For a moment, the crowd unnerved him late in the third set, but he was gracious in winning.
    The Joker, on the other hand is a complete fool, replete with his temper tantrum, racket bashing. outbursts.
    Let’s get rid of Novak and Billy Boy.
    My mom would have called them “poor ports”

  21. Jon says:

    Monza turned out to be a wild race, after the Sprint portion failed to deliver excitement or any real shift in the grid. Most retirements this season, I think. Too bad that Raikkonen couldn’t race, but it gave Kubica the chance to race F1 again. Bottas had pole and won the Sprint, but got sent to the rear for needing a new engine (not sure how it’s better that they’re now calling them ‘Power Units’). No question that Bottas had one of the most impressive drives of his career, as he recovered from 20th to 3rd. This, in the week he was fired from MB. His replacement, Russell picked up a few well deserved points – even though Bottas lapped him. McLaren had their first 1-2 win in eleven years (when it was Button and Hamilton). DannyRicky dominated the race, and had his first well deserved Shoey in far too long. And Verstappen managed to take out Hamilton, when they were expected (and surely capable) to wind up 1-2, in some fashion.

    Verstappen’s driving simply hasn’t matured. As poor judgement at times as Stroll, Tsunuda or Mazepin (Mazepin – has there ever been a more appropriate nickname?). He’s always shown immense talent – like his first, incredible rain win – but he hasn’t learned how to direct and restrain his aggression. It turns out that Verstappen really doesn’t like it when Hamilton drives like Verstappen. Hamilton had the right to put his car wherever he wanted, and Verstappen had all the latitude he needed not to drive into an accident. But he wouldn’t. Hamilton had backed out earlier, when he was challenging and Verstappen did exactly the same thing. The thing that sticks out to me, more than halfway through the season, is the Verstappen has seven wins to Hamilton’s four, yet only leads by five points – about a third from his placement in the Sprint race. Hamilton’s talent, professionalism and maturity is proving out in the results.

    And this was also the first time in forever that Hamilton didn’t bitch about his awful tires, before setting fastest lap. I’ve thought that the Halo exemplified everything wrong with the current state of F1, but it has certainly been preventing some serious injuries this season.

    • bmaz says:

      I hate the halo in principle, but it has already proved why it is necessary. I do wonder if, instead of that dreadful center post, there could not be two offset a little so the drivers could see straight ahead of them unobstructed.

      • Re entry says:

        Sorry i can’t find the article-

        but the halo design team were heavily influenced by Steve Martin in the Jerk

      • Jon says:

        I think that center post is the least visually intrusive for the driver. Given that they’re usually focusing well in the distance, that post won’t register, until you shift your focus much nearer, or to the side. Two offset posts would always be intruding on the driver’s vision.

        I can welcome the improved safety the Halo provides. But I can also be concerned for the Jevon’s Paradox that this crash illustrates: The cars are now safer, so riskier and less safe driving has fewer repercussions; Verstappen’s overly aggressive driving can be more widely tolerated, since fewer deaths are likely to ensue – so he does, because he can. This sort of driving wouldn’t have been tolerated in the bad old days, when multiple drivers died every season.

    I’m glad you said something re the alternate broadcast, had forgotten all about it. But if it’s too heavy on Eli’s lil’ bro shtick, I’m out. Gladdest moment for Peyton’s induction was the break from Eli’s promotional content (which, facing facts, will not end long-haul-wise until _Eli’s_ in).

    ^^ there’s one good reason to get it done first-ballot

    • Eureka says:

      Early verdict: if this were an important game, I’d want none of this. We’ll see how this wears and works out as the season goes.

      Otherwise, there is some (potential) unique infotainment value.

      It’ll be better when they lose some of the gimmicks.

      • rosalind says:

        i look at it as their pre-season game. think they’ll watch the “game tape” and realize they need to focus more on the game. am enjoying and learning from their inter-play.

      • Eureka says:

        Final verdict: It’s a podcast.

        It’s just one aired on national television, shoddy audio and all — if with guests and commentary of potential interest (can’t hear it anyway!).

        You can’t multitask and know what’s going on in the game, know when to turn your attention back…

        LMK if/when Archie’s boys get this figured out. Seems like something that’ll get boiled to best-of clips such that rounds of people will tune in out of FOMO then peel off (sadly, because kinda looked forward to it).

        • bmaz says:

          I liked it. But, dang, it was a firehose of information. If they can dial it back a little and spend more time showing the actual game, they might be on to something. Or not. We’ll see. But there was a lot of good info there.

          • Eureka says:

            rosalind (oh hey I didn’t see you there last nite — preseason –> fixes is a good metaphor) and bmaz —

            I liked the info-tales (that I could catch! gotta mix that audio better, w their & guests’ voices v. game noise) (& zoom audio can be so burbly), that’s partly why I likened it to a podcast: tons of inside info but it requires your complete attention (and also seemed too separate from the game). I wasn’t prepared to make it an event but it sounds like that’s how it’s best enjoyed.

            Hope the broadcast aspects improve to my liking!

            It’s a little mind-blowing, could not have envisioned this world back when first saw #16 and his kid brother.
