Better late than never.
This past weekend was sponsored by...
The Sumo Wrestler End Table. Capable of holding practically anything you want to lay on it. And a perfect match for the rest of your Sumo furniture.
Now, on to the thoughts...
1- Notre Dame continues to keep hope alive- 'cause they're 0 and 5! I really think, with a little luck, they can run the table.
2- What a great weekend for Scottius Maximus college sports. Kentucky is now up to #8 in the country. Go SEC! LSU is coming to Lexington 10-13-07 at Commonwealth Stadium. Go Wildcats. Watch Thursday night's game at South Carolina.
3- SIU beat Indiana State 72-10 to raise their record to 5-0.
4- Two of the most contrived sports competitions reared their ugly head. The first was golf's President's Cup. Just a competition to fill in the gaps until next year's Ryder Cup. Second is the college football poll. Poor USC. How does a team go from #1 to #2 in one week, despite winning? Easy. It's all contrived. But we don't need playoffs, right?
5- The Mets finished their tank job. Too bad because if they hadn't they would have won it all. Their Cardinalian swoon lacked one thing- pulling it out at the end, then getting hot (which naturally follows a cold spell) and winning it all like St. Louis last year.
6- Which is why anyone who entered the playoffs as a "hot" team will almost certainly hit a cold spell now, ending their season. The playoffs are such a different animal than the regular season. Everything starts over. Everyone's 0-0. Sorry Colorado.
7- Now that the Brian Griese experiment is off to such a Grossman like start, how about the analysts revealing the real reason why the QBs stink. Because ownership is cheap and let Thomas Jones go to make room for...Cedric Benson?
8- Looks like it's time for Baseball Mogul again to keep my interest until Spring Training starts in February.
9- The Rams are the best 0-4 team in the NFL. Of course, they are the only one also.
10- I thought the Giants D was deficient this year according to the experts. If that's the case, a real team would have sacked Donovan McNabb 20 times instead of just 12. McNabb, I predict, is the next Rex Grossman. Great one week, terrible the next.
11- It's time to revisit my July predicitions for how the baseball season would turn out. TO THE ARCHIVES!
