Two runs into the line from your own 2 in OT?

That adds up to a loss due to idiotic play calling.  Titans are now on the outside looking in for postseason.  They have Indy left AT Indy,  which will be tough unless Indy has no stake in the game,  but realistically the Titans will be 9-7 if they get the job done on the other two.  POOR, POUROUS 4th quarter Continue Reading

We Can’t Help Making Predictions

OK, after weeks of stunning upsets in College football,   I still see people making their picks (now it’s West Virginia/Kansas).  And why not?   They’re the favorites now, in control of their own destinies.  But I fully expect to see the Big 12 knock each other out (Oklahoma could well knock off that  KU-Mizzou winner,  thus keeping out the Big 12 Continue Reading

The Easy Scenario-Maybe?

If LSU wins out and Kansas OR Oklahoma OR Missouri win out,  then it’s LSU vs the Big 12 winner. The other teams,  Ohio State, West Virginia, Georgia,  and Arizona State have to hope for Oklahoma to lose one of their last two games and then beat Mizzou or Kansas,  effectively knocking the Big 12 threesome out (by then,  Kansas Continue Reading

The Muddy Football Championship Picture

I’ve watched things in College Football more than I ever have in my life this year.  If LSU loses the game they just started ,  then does West Virginia step into their spot (assuming they beat Cincinnati,  which is no gimme,  and it is IN Cincinnati).  If WVa  loses ,  then Ohio State may be the opponent for the Big Continue Reading

Hold the Presses! Patriots are Romping the Dolphins!

Are these NFL sportscasters really thinking that anyone is surprised? Do they really think that the rest of the NFL fans OTHER than Patriots fans are interested in endless “analysis” and “Wow!” on the Patriot’s intiail run this year?  I am saying NOTHING about how good they look. They look great.  But after so much,  I’m just not interested anymore,  Continue Reading

"I Live For This" fans upset in Cleveland

 What?  It’s NOT the end of the world?  Manny Ramirez committed baseball blasphemy.  Ramirez: Red Sox losing ALCS wouldn’t be ‘end of the world’ ESPN – Manny: BoSox losing ALCS not ‘end of the world’ – MLB MLB.com has nothing on this.  ESPN radio’s Mike and Mie in the morning were talking about it this morning,  so I went to Continue Reading

Reds Extremely Disappointing Again

The Reds find numerous ways to disappoint us these past two years.  Each year,  they’ve been so bad (mostly pitching) that they are ,  for all appearances,  out of the race.  Until,  that is,  the mediocre play from the Central Division allows them to be within striking distance with a record of 10 games under 500.  Then,  when the opportunity Continue Reading

Bonds and Baseball

I’ve said if before,  but now I need to say it again.  Baseball records need to re-institute the asterisks rule on the homerun record.  Only instead of an asterisks,  use the RX symbol (as Al Franken once said re: this issue). I am ,  as an MLB  baseball fan, sick about this.  There are mounds of evidence that Bonds doped Continue Reading

Trivial Stats

“The last time an Indians pitcher was the first to reach 13 wins was…” I already forgot the answer,  but my point here is,  who do they think cares about this utterly stupid tracing of entirely obscure statistics?  Earlier today, I heard this one:  On marking the starts of two pitchers way up there on the all time wins list Continue Reading

Titans Got Their Present From Santa, and couldn’t do their part

The Titans needed a gift from Santa to get into the playoffs.  With a win at home vs the Pats (no easy task),  they also needed KC to beat Jacksonville,  The Steelers to beat Cincinnati at Cincinnati,  and THEN have lowly San Francisco beat Denver at Denver.  The Titans lost out.  They were within 3 at 26-23 with 6 minutes Continue Reading
