1. World Series - And just when you thought baseball couldn't follow up last year's gem with a repeat performance, they do just that. The Fall Classic has been great, and quite frankly, I don't want it to end.
2. Saudi Arabia Women - Well, Saudi Arabia is now following their recent legislation to allow women the ability to drive with access at sporting stadiums. Again, we can be cynical, but it's just another reminder of the vast social justice issues still being fought for across the globe.
3. Women Saved at Sea - After being adrift at sea for several months - Yes, months! - two women were finally rescued this week. I can't even begin to imagine the story they have. That kind of resolve is downright impressive.
1. Opiod Epidemic - So apparently our country has a huge problem with prescription drugs as declared this week by many places. The Pharmaceutical industry should be ashamed. I don't blame users, as much as I do the lobbyist who have spent over $250M to pass law in order to repeal federal involvement of the industry, and those involved making money off of the lives of so many. Ridiculous.
2. NFL - Another week, another foot in the mouth moment for the league that is front and center, and in many ways, a microcosm of race relations in America. So the Texans protested the anthem, and more people are outraged. It never fails to surprise me that no one has interest in address inequality via these protests. America is an interesting place.
3. Yuli Gurriel - The "eyes" gesture and the comment was uncalled for and unfortunate. No place in the game for that, nor in humanity in general. Kudos to Yu Darvish who handled it with class, including calling out one bigoted woman on Twitter who deserved the backlash she received.
