ALANIS MORISSETTE is finally coming to terms with the fact that several men took advantage of her when she was an up-and-coming pop star. In a new documentary called “Jagged”, she says, quote, “It took me years in therapy to even admit there had been any kind of victimization on my part. “I would always say I was consenting, and then I’d be reminded like ‘Hey, you were 15, you’re not consenting at 15.’ “Now I’m like, ‘Oh yeah, they’re all pedophiles. It’s all statutory rape.'” Alanis says she did tell some people at the time, but it, quote, “kind of fell on deaf ears.” Alanis didn’t name any of the men. She’s also not cooperating with the makers of “Jagged” anymore because she’s not happy with the finished product. There’s no word what she’s unhappy with.

Los Angeles Dodgers ace Max Scherzer became the 19th pitcher in MLB history to record 3,000 career strikeouts Sunday. The three-time Cy Young winner entered his start against the Padres needing just six more K’s to reach the mark. He got there by the fifth inning, striking out one in the first, three in second—an immaculate inning, no less—one in the third and one in the fifth, using 51 pitches total to hit the milestone. Scherzer joins Bob Gibson, Nolan Ryan, Roger Clemens, Randy Johnson, Greg Maddux, Curt Schilling, Pedro Martinez, John Smoltz, CC Sabathia, Justin Verlander and a few other Hall of Fame greats. He’s gone over the 250-K mark in a season five times and exceeded 200 K’s in nine consecutive seasons with the exception of 2020’s pandemic-shortened campaign. The Missouri native still finished with 92 strikeouts in 67.1 innings.
Francisco Lindor whistled at the Yankees, and he sent the ball whistling over the wall — three times. In the midst of a miserable first season with the Mets, Lindor kept alive his new team’s postseason chances and dropped its crosstown rival out of a playoff position. He nearly set off a brawl when he taunted his opponents after his second home run, then he broke an eighth-inning tie with his third long ball in the Subway Series-ending 7-6 victory on Sunday night. Lindor hit a three-run homer batting left-handed in the second inning off on a hanging breaking ball, had a solo homer in the sixth hitting right-handed on a changeup and broke a 7-7 tie from the left side on a fastball. It was the first career three-homer game for Lindor. He became the first player with a three-homer outing in the 139-game history of the Subway Series.
The Blues released their Winter Classic jerseys for their upcoming outdoor game against the Minnesota Wild next year.

Reactions have been mixed but I think they are pretty sharp.
Washington quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been knocked out of Sunday’s matchup against the Chargers in the second quarter with a hip injury.

The 17-year NFL veteran immediately grabbed his side before being helped by the training staff. Taylor Heinicke – former St. Louis Battlehawk – got into the game as his replacement and almost led them to a win.

Daniil Medvedev won the first major championship of his career in stunning fashion, defeating world No. 1 Novak Djokovic (LINK) in the 2021 U.S. Open final on Sunday. The upset victory denied Djokovic a chance at winning the first calendar-year Grand Slam in men’s singles tennis since 1969. The win is a rare breakthrough in an era that Djokovic, Nadal and Federer have dominated. The latter two missed the U.S. Open entirely, and their age may finally open up more opportunities for young talent like Medvedev to shine
