In case you missed them, here are some teachable moments from the past seven days:
▪ Ken Griffey Jr goes a lot easier on Hall of Fame voters than he did on opposing pitchers.
▪ The Kings’ season continues to be a little Column A, a little Column B.
▪ Some team had to invent the pop-off loss and the Bengals were more than qualified.
▪ Home-field advantage means nothing in the NFL’s wild-card round.
▪ Jordan Spieth probably is going to be a handful this season.
