Miguel’s Friday Thoughts

Indianapolis Colts outlasted the Denver Broncos on Thursday night with a 12-9 victory in overtime. Russell Wilson and the Broncos missed a significant opportunity to score a touchdown with 2 minutes left in the 4th quarter. Broncos had a 9-6 lead, and momentum shifted when Wilson threw an interception at the end zone. Colts and Broncos didn’t score a touchdown. It mainly was field goals. The game was ugly and not exciting. But in the end, Colts’ defense stepped up and did not allow Wilson to come away with the victory. The Colts improve to 2-2, and the Broncos drop to 2-3. 

Shane McClanahan will take on Shane Bieber in Game 1 of the wild card series. Both pitchers are terrific. The Rays have a better rotation than the Guardians, but the Guardians have a better lineup and know how to put the ball in play and get on base better than the Rays. Progressive Field is going to be rocking this weekend. There are going to be sold-out seats. Cleveland fans are one of the most dedicated and cheerful fans when it comes to postseason play. Guardians will feed off the crowd and will play their absolute best baseball. 

The musical “1776” won Best Musical in 1969. I’m somewhat late to the party, but I recently discovered the new revival play, which premiered on September 16th at the American Airlines Theatre. Many critics have not been impressed with the new “1776” play and believe that the revival play failed to convey or portray the history of 1776 correctly. The musical is two hours and forty-five minutes, including one fifteen-minute intermission. I’m not sure if I’m ever going to see this play. I haven’t seen a Broadway show since October 2019, when I saw Beetlejuice. 1776 will show for the final time on January 8, 2023. 

The trailer for the new “Super Mario Bros” animated film has been released all over the place. I’m excited about this because I grew up playing Mario games on systems such as Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64. It’s a big part of my childhood. My only concern is that I hope Hollywood doesn’t make this into a “Woke, Political Correct” caliber film. It wouldn’t be shocking because we are seeing this in so many movies already, but please keep it away from Super Mario Bros. The film will arrive in theaters on April 7, 2023, starring Chris Pratt, Charlie Day, Seth Rogen, and many more.
