MLB Playoff Predictions- NL

Brewers over Diamondbacks in 5.

Phillies over Cards in 4

MLB Playoff Predictions- Part 2

Detroit Tigers v. New York Yankees.

Sorry, Yankees, this year the AL Central is not sending the Twins, so no more first-round bye. If Verlander wins today, it could be Detroit in 4. Let's say Detroit in 5 to be safe.

MLB Playoff Predictions- Part 1

Tampa Bay vs. Texas

A re-match of last year's ALDS. This one is pretty much a coin toss. Hard to pick agaisnt Tampa Bay. But Texas is the better team.

It's Bears-Packers Week

Yes, I will be at Soldier Field on Sunday, but not very confident after last's week's Saints game,
But it's still Packers' Hate week!

Joke #1
Q: You are on an island with a Packers fan, a cannibal and a zombie. You have a gun with two bullets. Who do you shoot? A: The Packers fan, twice, just to be sure.

Joke #2
Cheesehead School teacher

A first grade teacher explains to her class that she is a Cheesehead.

She asks her students to raise their hands if they are
Cheeseheads too.

No one really knowing what a Cheesehead was, but wanting
to be like their teacher, their hands explode into the air like flashy

There is, however, one exception. A girl named Kristen
who has not gone along with the crowd. The teacher asks her why she has
decided to be different.

“Because I’m not a Cheesehead.”

“Then”, asks the teacher, “what are you?”

“Why, I’m a proud bear Fan,” boasts the little girl.

The teacher is a little perturbed now, her face slightly red. She asks
Kristen why she is a rebel.

“Well, my mom and dad are Bear Fans, so I’m a Bear Fan too.”

The teacher is now angry. “That’s no reason,” she says loudly. “What if
your mom was a moron, and your dad was a moron. What would you be then?”

A pause, and a smile. “Then,” says Kristen, “I’d be a Cheesehead

Joke # 3

Q: Why did Clay Matthews get so excited after he finished his jigsaw puzzle in only 6 months?
A: Because on the box it said From 2-4 years.

RIP, Orlando Brown

Former offensive lineman for the Ravens and Browns found dead at the age of 40.

Ozzie Post-Game

I will miss Ozzie's post-games if he is gone after the season. And my guess is that he is gone after the season. It might be time for a change. And enough of the Ozzie- Kenny Williams Soap Opera already!

Very Disappointing Year For White Sox

funny gifs

Ocassionally, there was something worthwhile to see at Sox games, but overall not meetign my high expecctations!

White Sox Elimination Number Down to 1

Time to look ahead to other, better things.

This Post Was Going To Be Something

funny gifsreally profound about sports. But I got distracted and now have no idea what I wanted to say except that it was brillant!

Stay Classy, Twerps!

Watch out Boston, Here Comes Tampa

We actually have a play-off race that we didn't have a week and a half ago.
BTW, some Cubs fans are rooting for Tampa to overtake the Red Sox in hops that such will increase the likelihood of Theo Epstein taking the Cubs' GM job.

My Fantasy

Football Team.

Suddenly don't fell so bad about not getting Peyton Manning or David Garrard.

My QBs- Alex Smith and Rex Grossman (hey, I am in a 16 team 2 QBs league- so it coulb be worse). Backed up by Vince Young (Vick's gonna miss some games) and Tim Tebow (who knows).

WRs-the strenght of my team: Andre Johnson & Larry Fitzgerald. Also- Vincent Jackson , Josh Cribbs and Earl Bennett.

RBs- Shon Greene & Darren Sproles. Back-up: Donald Brown.

TEs- Todd Heap and Visanthe Shancoe

K- Janikowski (Polish Power!)

Will He Get Booed By the Home Crowd Again Today?

Preview For Boss

No HM, this is not about our law school classmate! Frasier Crane plays the ficititious mayor of Chicago. Best part of this trailer, besides one of my favorites, Kathleen Robertson? Pretty sure that the guy introducing the mayor at the beginning is White Sox GM, Kenny Williams!

I know there is an exciting Twins- White Sox game tonight (Twins rumored to start 3 players with no prior MLB experience. White Sox counter with a starting line-up of Rios and Adam Dunn- no Paul Konerko or Dayan Viciedo!!! Edge, Twins).

Nonetheless, at some point I will be switching to the Season 4 Premiere of "Sons of Anarchy."

Sons- one of the top five shows on TV ("Mad Men" still #1 in my humble opinion.)

Top 20 College Football Rankings

Because one week of games will tell us alot!!

1. LSU- right now not hurt by off season problems
2. Oklahoma
3. Alabama
4. Wisconsin- hate to say this, but looking good.

5. Florida State

6. Virginia Tech- but overall the ACC looks weak.

7. Nebraska

Jumping To Conclusions After One Week of College Football

1. LSU is really really good. The Tigers may still miss Jordan Jefferson down the line, but at least for now, not missing a beat.
2. Boise State could be playing in the BSC championship game. Not saying they are one of the best teams in the country, but they certainly can go undefeated the rest of the way.
3, DUKE football is still DUKE football- bad. Lose again to Richmond. Yes, the Richmond Spiders.

4. If BC can't beat Northwestern without Dan Persa, then either BC is pretty bad or Northwestern could be really good.
