Tripple Overtime: Indians, Golden Knights unified by Unified (The definitive Josh Timmons interview Pt. II)
For basketball fans, or even for fans of just, like, general humanity, it was very exciting. It was very, very exciting.
Tripple Overtime: An apology that Tom Brady will never get, for things he never knew I said in the first place
I guess I don’t really have to offer an apology to Tom Brady. That’s not to say he doesn’t deserve one. I just don’t think he needs it.
Tripple OT: The rigging of the ‘greatest quarterback of all time’ conversation by the Soviet-apologist Vladimir Putin
Disclaimer: The following transcript has been derived from a secret-impromptu-Ocean’s 11-conspiracy-type meeting called by four-time respective Super Bowl champions Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw that involves several other former NFL signal-callers typically mentioned in the “greatest quarterback of all time” conversation, in addition to Russian President Vladimir Putin, in a misguided attempt by them, as in the quarterbacks, to convince him, as in Putin, to rig Super Bowl LI (51) as he did, allegedly, the 2016 United States presidential election and also, allegedly, Super Bowl XLII, when the Patriots lost to the Giants on that crazy David Tyree helmet catch, and so, but anyway, the meeting was called to make sure that Tom Brady does not become the only player in NFL history to win five Super Bowl championships, the ramifications of which would most likely finally shed some definitive light on the whole “greatest quarterback of all time” conversation-thing mentioned earlier and be all-together bad news for both Montana and Bradshaw, as well as the other professional leather egg-throwers/co-conspirators in attendance.
Tripple Overtime: No contest for old men? TB12 and the best oldest quarterbacks in Super Bowl history
There’s no question that Tom Brady is one of the greatest NFL quarterbacks of all time. First-ballot Hall of Fame? You bet.
It’s Schrödinger’s cat. Nobody going to a restaurant because it’s too crowded. Pretty much every major plot point in the 1985 American science-fiction adventure-comedy “Back to the Future.”
(And other presidents who did stuff like that)
I remember the last week of school: Getting to use your “senior privileges” to go off-campus for lunch instead of having to stomach whatever Miss Debbie was serving up in the cafeteria that day. Getting to watch the movie “Boiler Room” in economics class instead of having to learn about, like, actual economics. The way how, for the first time in all your 18 years of being a person, it was cool to just do nothing for once.
You know the guy in all those “Friday” movies? And those “Next Friday” movies? And also those “The Next Friday after the Friday after the last Next Friday following the following Next Friday” movies?
In the sort-of-famous words of the Seattle-based 1990’s alt-rock/grunge band and obvious Kurt Cobain wannabes “Alice In Chains”: “Yeah, here comes the rooster, yeah.”
As the old saying goes, “You’ve gotta spend monkeys to make monkeys.”
Tripple OT: Is Jeff Fisher the Donald Trump of the NFL? One local sports reporter says, ‘Yeah, kind of’ (Hint: It’s me)
Jeff Fisher made the move from a city sort of near the “Big Easy” to a city sometimes referred to as the “Big Orange” with only one thing on the agenda: make the Los Angeles Rams great again.
What do you like better, Christmas or wedding season? The correct answer would be: banquet season.
There’s nothing like a good misquoted Vince Vaughnism [sic] to send us into the most wonderful time of the year.
The best plays from Fall 2016
What… a… season.
While the 2016 fall sports calendar may not have shaken out as planned for a few teams at Indian River High School, this one has certainly been one for the record books for the Tribe.
While it may be a little early for our “Tribe Top Five” and all the best sports moments from fall 2016, with the Indian River High School soccer team still keeping IR fall sports alive and playing for a shot at the state title, it’s never too early for our ‘Not Top 10” and all the best worst sports moments from the past season involving a certain Coastal Point sports reporter with an inclination toward run-on sentences and Mighty Ducks references.
Tripple Overtime: Can the NFL stop bogarting Instant Replay now because we could kind of use some for field hockey
As a journalist, you’re not allowed to have a rooting interest, specific team-wise, when you’re covering games or writing features or enduring presidential elections, or whatever else.
Tripple Overtime: There’s a ‘Back to the Future’ Cubs’ conspiracy even though now technically the future is kind of the past
Theoretical physics. Rubik’s cubes. Where exactly “the Cloud” is. Whether Cobb’s totem stopped spinning or no at the end of the movie “Inception” featuring Jason Gordon-Levitz (“Snowden,” “Third Rock from the Sun”) and Leonardo DiCaprio (“What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?,” pretty much every Martin Scorsese movie ever made) and also the movie’s entire not-so-basic plot, too.
America: The land of the free. The home of the brave. The birthplace of the word “supersize” and adult-onset diabetes.
If you know one thing about me, it’s that I’m scared of birds. But also, after catching a few episodes of the show “Stranger Things” on Netflix, and since, apparently, I’m, like, 6, I’m also pretty scared of the dark (ghosts, aliens, demogorgons messing with my soul, Democrats messing with voting ballots, etc.).
There were a lot of shrugs and “I don’t know”s and “Do you only own, like, one shirt, or what’s the deal?”s in my own personal discussions about the Indian River High School and Sussex Central High School soccer teams before they faced off on Tuesday.
Tripple Overtime: Beyond the rivalry: The definitive Josh Timmons interview after his second career goal
Call it what you (and, by “you,” I pretty much mean “I”) will.
To quote the famous and fictitious Michael Scott, “I’m not superstitious, but I am, a little stiticious.”
I don’t really get it, how my friends don’t really get it, how I most definitely do not want to get in on their fantasy football draft.
Throughout American history, the sports world and world in general have seen their fair share of lies and liars.
For as much time as he spends in the water, it seems somewhat strange that Michael Phelps does not like fish.
Tripple Overtime: If surfing again after a broken collarbone is cool, then I’m probably a far cry from Miles Davis
There are, as a general law of the universe, only a handful of chances that life allows us to look really unequivocally cool.
This week’s “Tripple Overtime” column title translates loosely to “Only the one who does not fear the dragon’s breathe will walk the trail of fire,” or something else like that that you’re probably very likely hear Matt Damon say in “The Great Wall” whenever it’s, for whatever reason, supposed to premiere and whenever he, for whatever reason, is supposed to star in it.

The assignment was to take the court. There were four of us. Five, if you count The Baron, but he had lost his spot when the reveille call went off, and couldn’t fight as well as he could when I had first met him. And he was young and brave, and the court was dry, despite the rain. And it sloped down toward a road, and there were many curious drivers on the road. And the idea was to aim for the center line, and if our aim was true, we could beat them.
(Fine, I'll do it)
After watching Blake Lively get just absolutely Amity-Island-style terrorized by a Gigantic White Shark (GWS) in the movie “The Shallows” for roughly 1 hour, 27 minutes, one of two things can be assumed:
(that time I learned to SUP)
The Beginning of the not-so-existential The End came when my friend The Mantis sent me an SMS text message last Thursday.
(Probably not, no, but still…)
It’s fairly hanging low fruit… or figs… or whatever it is that they eat over in England (not sure… basing all knowledge of the U.K. off Austin Powers), to say that London Bridge is falling down.
Not to be confused with “Tripple Overtime Takeover,” in which Indian River High School head soccer coach Steve Kilby often enjoys questioning Tripp’s abilities as an actor while at the same time masterfully clearing up weeks’ worth of discrepancies regarding Patriots’ QB Tom Brady and HC Bill Belichick — in “Reverse Tripple Overtime,” Tripp debates controversial topics from the sports world and world at large with his reverse-self, Ppirt (one of the P’s being silent… not sure which). Why he does this instead of just, like, talking to a real human being about it, or, you know, just not doing it all, like a normal person, we are not sure.
