Yes, this is a sports post. In the past, a lot of you complain, saying that you don’t care and whatever (after I heard that I really just ignored the rest of what you were saying) but here I am posting about it again, and guess what…I don’t care.
It’s that time of year again. October baseball. Nothing revs my sports engine more. You start focusing in on every pitch, of every game. Anyone can beat anybody. Let’s be honest, how often is the Super Bowl exciting? Now think about how often a World Series is exciting. Seems like every single year. Last year every game was decided within 1 or 2 runs.(I have no internet at the moment, I can’t actually confirm that.) Even though the AL seems to beat us every year, I’m still up there rootin’ against them.
I love the new Tommy Lasorda commercials, convincing every fan of non-playoff teams that there’s still more baseball to see. If you’re a Red Sox fan, its time to root against the Yankees. (To the TV!!!)
Heres some other sports notes I’d like to pass along:
-Bobby Abreu, Randy Johnson, Carlos Guillen, and Craig Monroe, all have something in common besides playing in the ALDS…. they are ALL former Astros, Abreu and Guillen products of the farm system.
-I’m super proud of the comeback display showed by the Astros. Almost made ANOTHER historic comeback. And as one writer put it, every playoff team was thinking the same thing: If the Astros make it in, it won’t be good for business. (Noting the fearsome rotation of Clemens, Petitte, and Oswalt)
-Derek Jeter is a freak of nature. I respect the skills, but I still can’t stand him. Give him the MVP. Ortiz, try playing a position.
-Here’s a list of my top 10 most hated sports organizations (hated by me, not by general public):
1. New York Yankees
2. Auburn Tigers (Don’t ask me why, but they instill this rage inside of me…I think it has something to do with the war eagle, that has nothing to do with the Tiger, and the students that go there, especially the guys, who ALL have the EXACT same haircut.)
3. Texas Longhorns
4. Nebraska Cornhuskers
5. Boston Red Sox
6. St Louis Rams
7. USC Trojans
8. Atlanta Braves
9. Chicago Cubs
10. L.A. Lakers (They would be higher, but I refuse to give the NBA the time of day)
