Well, as long as this is a completely random hodge-podge of sports-related stuff, here's one of my favorite stats of this college football season:

So far this season on plays where Stanford's opponents have attempted field goals, Stanford is outscoring them 7-6.

Cards vs. Rangers in the World Series! That should actually be a good set of games to watch. I would have cried if the Brewers had made it, with how bad they seem to be playing as of late.

I want the Rangers to win, but thats more because I think it would be the ultimate in life redemption for Josh Hamilton who seems to walk around perpetually under ladders with black Cats in front of him, while breaking mirrors, and a great testament to Nolan Ryan, and trying to do it "the right way".

When I first moved to St Louis from the UK I saw one of the chain of restaurants he owns, with his name on the front, never having even heard of him before I asked the people I was with why on earth someone would name a restaurant 'Poo Holes', there were not impressed with my 'dissing' of their baseball hero :P

[off topic]
I have reinvented them in the 'campagin' I'm a part of, breaking away from the Spider, and looking to return maho to its pure form, that of Isawa before the fall of Fu Leng. Heh, My character even took the name of the Snake who doomed the original clan as his family name.

Shoju is quite possibly the most interesting character from the Clan War era. I miss him :(
[/off topic]

[on topic]
I had tell my son that he was allowed to say pujols last name. He that it was a bad word. (he's 8 now, had this discussion when he was 5 or 6).

Once I got him to understand he could say it, He wanted to know why he didn't just go by Butthole?

I couldn't enjoy the superbowl the Seahawks made it to cause I was beside myself with anxiety. I also couldn't enjoy it cause they lost.

I cut loose the Mariners a long time ago. I don't really care for baseball in the first place so it wasn't a hard decision but I'll always be a die hard Seahawks fan.

No kidding. To this day I don't really like the Steelers because of that Seahawks/Steelers superbowl. Talk about being given a TD.

And re: Mike and Mike:
I like them and listened to them for years when I was driving home at 8am. I still think they're overrated. :)

I think the sports fans of Cleveland, Kansas City and Seattle should get together and form some sort of super-suffering fan club. :)

I like pretty much any sport, but I follow the NFL, NCAAF, and MLB the most. I grew up in PA so I'm a Pittsburgh fan for the professional sports, but Penn State for college. Now that I live near Seattle I also follow the Mariners.

I'm not sure how Mike and Mike are overrated. I mean it's not that they're great, but I never really heard them showered with praise. Seattle actually has a really good morning show host with Mitch Levy. He's one of the best interviewers in sports journalism, imo.

We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.
