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.

Tell that to the Yankees and the Cowboys. (And the Red Sawx Pink Hats)

Success: Got Shoju to do statistical analysis to attempt to prove a point in a sports thread.

Edit: Also tell that to the Lakers fans that are in hysteria because the team is 0-2.


Brown fired

I'm surprised they fired him. I always liked Brown as a coach, especially, because there were times where you could see the tension between he and LBJ. He'll coach again.... And probably win a title before CLE>

Reports are trickling in that the Indians are fielding calls from the Boston Red Sox for Justin Masterson and Shin Shoo Choo.

I'm boggled. We'll keep Allballsdo Nostrikemez, and look at trading Masterston? Why? One Bad Season?

Choo? Really? we're going to let another guy with an average+ bat go away? Do we really want to look back in a couple of years and see that he did the same thing as VMart? 300 ba 20 hr 100RBI? and we let them walk?

Fuck me. Francona is going to get jobbed by the front office.

Well, Masterson was once a Red Sox...

Anyways.... 'bama - a&m -- I watch ncaa football, but not as much as I used to, and follow my alma mater even less, but damn if I would not be proud of my aggies if they mess up with the bcs standings =P

The bigger question is what are they going to get in return? If the Sawx manage to pan off Lackey on you, then yes, you truly are cursed.

Things I learned from Sunday

- Von Miller having Newton eat grass is Magic
- 420 TDs from Peyton is Magic as well.
- Fitzpatrick snatches defeat from the jaws of victory
- Andy Reid watch is still in effect // Nick Foles era begins?
- Giants defense didn't make it to Cincy
- Wade Phillips is a horrible head coach but a really really good defensive coordinator
- Jason Campbell was better than he seemed to be
- 49rs and Rams kissed their own sisters... seriously Rams... walking to the line with 15 secs to go?
- I knew the Falcons were overrated as an undefeated team, but that they lost to the Saints is what surprises me.
- Why do they keep starting Mark Sanchez? Jets are paying 10 million dollars to Tebow for nothing, oh yeah, and draft picks too.
- WTF happened to the Lions? This is more than Madden Curse cuz as far as I know, only Megatron was in the cover, not the whole team.

I didn't watch a lot of football this weekend. I couldn't get any games that I cared to watch, but
Cincy trouncing the Giants felt good.
Who knew that Dallas had a Defense? (I picked them up in Fantasy because of Vick's turnovers.... And they won me the week for sure)
New Orleans is better than we all thought. Even without their coach
Jeff Fisher needs to practice the Troll Face. Man that game was... odd.
Rex Ryan should be fired. Maybe before Shurmur. I have never seen a team look so dreadful, and see so many people not blame the HC.
Freeman is a good QB.
WTF happened in Miami....

as far as College, now I just need Kansas State to find a way to lose, setting up what could be one of the most Epic BCS Championship Games ever. O R E G O N OREGON! VS The Irish. When I was a teen, I was a big Irish fan (I couldn't tell you why anymore... But I thought they were a lot of fun to watch. Now, ND is looking for legitimacy, Oregon is this... Blitzkrieg offense that is just awesome to watch, AND! No SEC team in the Title game. That would make me happy.

Talking about the ducks -- I would like to see Chip in the NFL for this
http://www.thepostgame.com/blog/men-act ... lution-nfl

The reason why the Saints victory surprises me is because their Defense had been atrocious all season long.

And regarding the Jets -- I had already posted this article, but this bears repeating
http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/story/2077 ... -tim-tebow

They suck royally with Sanchez, might as well start Tebow, that would at least electrify the fans for a while -- just like it happened with the Broncos last season.

Did I mention I loved Von Miller?

Love/hate the Lakers drama.. ex-coach who wanted it all, family-feud, fans who demand immediate success, old old stars, and it will be on the radio non-stop for the next 7 months... :(
