The Raiders win the best TNF game in a long time, a crazy scientific discovery, a catfishing with a happy ending and more.
So I Guess I Should Have Watched This
It looks like I made a big mistake not watching Chiefs-Raiders last night. By all accounts, it was the best Thursday night game in recent memory. The Chiefs scored on a miraculous tip-drill play that went 63 yards. Derek Carr, playing with a broken bone in his back, led a game-winning drive that ended with a touchdown on an un-timed down.

So it wasn't a sweep but the Dodgers are into the World Series after beating the Cubs last night. It's the first time the Dodgers have made the World Series since 1988, before almost half of their current roster was born. Clayton Kershaw joked that he might hang it up if the Dodgers win it all. I guess that cover we had in August asking if they were the best team ever wasn't a kiss of death.
Speaking of the Dodgers, I can't stop watching this transformation of Justin Turner.

Patrick Beverley Ruined Lonzo Ball's Night
Lonzo Ball had three times as many rebounds (nine) as he did points (three) in his NBA debut last night. Give Patrick Beverley credit for calling his shot a month ago.
And for gloating about it after the game.

I reviewed the WWE 2K game. It's fine. ... This woman got catfished, then fell in love for real with the guy whose pictures got stolen. ... The guy behind this iconic old-school internet meme is now the co-creator of the Big Bang Theory spinoff. ... I loved this profile of a Native American lacrosse star playing to preserve his culture.
