Remember those Southwest Airlines commercials where someone would do or say something embarrassing and the narrator would ask, “Wanna get away?” Yeah, that’s Texas governor Greg Abbott today. For those who weren’t paying attention, the Houston Astros were leading the Kansas City Royals by a score of 6-2 in the 8th inning in Game 4 of the American League Division Series.

The BUM of the Week is back with a vengeance. This might be hard to believe, but I hadn’t decided on who was going to take home this week’s award until a few hours ago. Roger Goodell was in the running the entire time, especially after his embarrassing press conference earlier this week where he said with a straight face that he had no regrets about how the DeflateGate debacle unfolded. Really? You don’t regret making your league (and yourself) the laughingstock of sports? You don’t regret getting caught lying repeatedly in Brady’s appeal process?
