The 10 Spot's a uniter, not a divider:
• The Redskins lost 23-6 last night to the Steelers, which could be bad news for John McCain. For 16 of the past 17 elections, the incumbent party has held onto the White House when the Skins win their last game before the election, but gone down to electoral defeat after a Washington loss. And there’s more -- the Steelers were led to victory by an African-American (Byron Leftwich) who wasn’t expected to be the top dog at the start of the campaign. Uh oh, Johnny Mac.
• Monday Night Football aired halftime interviews with both McCain and Barack Obama. Personally, I don’t think politics has any place on MNF. Plus we were missing the “You Got Jacked Up” segment. Priorities, people.
• I mean, it would be one thing if either Mac or Barry had a movie to pitch or something. Then they could have stopped by the booth during the actual game like any C-list movie star.
• A NASCAR fan was hit by a stray bullet over the weekend at Texas Motor Speedway. You could tell it was a stray bullet because it didn’t strike the RV next door with the Obama-Biden sticker.
• Bill James’ "Fielding Bible" Web site voted the Yankees’ Derek Jeter the 22nd-best fielder among big league shortstops. In Jeter’s defense, though, it’s hard to snare grounders with all those rings on your fingers.
• The Brewers have made a substantial offer to pitcher CC Sabathia believed to be in the range of $100 million. Sabathia's agent promptly patted GM Doug Melvin on the head and called the offer “cute.”
