Naidu: Not my World Series

This is not the World Series everybody wanted.  A matchup between the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers could not feature two more vintage blueblood franchises. The Dodgers haven’t won in three decades, but they’re still six-time World Series champions – they’re still the team that housed legends like Sandy Koufax, Pee Wee Reese and Jackie Robinson. The Red Sox are no stranger to the limelight and World Series rings either, winning five years ago, with three championships since the year 2000.

Stanford in the NFL: Super Bowl preview

Stanford football alumni have had great performances during the 2017 NFL season. The debuts of top-10 picks rookies running back Christian McCaffrey and defensive end Solomon Thomas have captured the interest of their teams’ fanbases.

Ziperski: Belichick finally makes mistake

Bill Belichick has enjoyed one of the most successful tenures ever as a head football coach, having succeeded year-after-year in crafting a contender with top-notch talent on offense, defense and special teams.

Last week, however, he finally slipped up: the Jimmy Garoppolo trade to San Francisco is one, I believe, that he will come to regret.
