Good Morning, it’s Sunday, 10 September 2017 and this is the morning edition of The Nightshift, the world’s overnight news feed.
Hurricane Irma is moving in on the West Coast of Florida. Morning television newscasts are highlighting the endangered communities along Florida’s west coast, including Tampa, Naples, and St. Petersburg. Meanwhile, high winds and rains are battering the east coast of Florida, which is on the hurricane’s “dirty” side. The storm will continue to dominate the news for the next several days.
Yesterday was a big day in sports. Oklahoma beat Ohio State, 31-16, as rookie head coach Lincoln Kennedy and Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield combined to deal a stunning loss to Ohio State’s legendary coach Urban Meyer. In other college football news, USC beat Stanford 42-24, Clemson topped Auburn 14-6, Georgia beat Notre Dame 20-19 (is this Brian Kelly’s last year at Notre Dame?). At the U.S. Open, Sloan Stephens won her first major when she bested Madison Keys 6-3,6-0. Again, like women’s semi-finals, not a very stirring match. Finally, the Cleveland Indians beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-2, to extend their winning streak to 17 straight games. Amazing.

Today is National Grandparents Day. If you are lucky enough to have grandparents, tell them how much you appreciate them. And, in what is certainly not a coincidence, it’s also National TV Dinner Day. Ask your grandparents about them.
