This week was a wild one.

MLB Playoffs:

The Mets proved that despite them being the worst team in the playoffs, miracles can happen, as they swept the Chicago Cubs and reached the World Series for the first time in 15 years. In the American League, the Royals barely got by the Blue Jays to reach the World Series. They can thank Jays’ Manager John Gibbons’ questionable decision making for the opportunity! But don’t worry, if you really want to know why the Blue Jays lost look no further then Ben Revere, who responds the same way most 12 year-olds would: it was the umpire’s fault.

NBA:

The NBA season starts Tuesday night. Golden State looks to defend its title, as they open their season on TNT against Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans. Last season’s runner up, the Cleveland Cavaliers, are scheduled to play the Chicago Bulls where everyone is really wondering if Derrick Rose can stay healthy for more than the first quarter (if he even plays).

NFL:

It’s still early. The only really important thing to know is that the Bills lost to the Jaguars. That’s pathetic. Also, if you are wondering why Adrian Peterson was “sick” you might want to check this out. Pretty ridiculous.
