The Drama Jocks’ SportsCast #89: Welcome Back, Graybeard.

The Colts picked up some insurance for their banged up, veteran ironman QB this week by pulling a Super Bowl-winning, recently retired, gray-bearded gunslinger out of retirement.  That’s right, folks — Kerry Collins will ride again.

On a Brewers off-day that saw the Twins fall to the lowly Orioles and complete a waiver-wire trade with Cleveland to send Jim Thome back to his original team, we finally and definitively stick a fork in Minnesota baseball.

Across the river in Wisconsin, though, baseball fans are all smiles as the Crew continues their amazing romp through August en route to their first division crown since ’82 and a shot at making some noise in the playoffs.  Yes, there are 30 games left, but we’ll let the team worry about the day-to-day stuff as we discuss why a collapse is so improbable.

The Sporting News hit your mailbox this week with their NFL preview, and they predict two 15-1 teams (New England and Green Bay) will meet in Super Bowl XLVI.  The match-up is not inconceivable, but the predicted regular season record is a little tough to swallow.  We discuss.

I’m on my way to see the Brewers entertain the Cubs twice this weekend — don’t know how I’m going to be able to focus on the NFL only 13 days from now, but we’ll find a way to git ‘er done.  Enjoy the show!
