Well there is a lot I could say but it would all be about frustration in our area. I just hope ECU is that good and we are not just that bad.

Congrats to ECU (ranked 14 this morning in one poll). I hope you crack the BCS bowl group.

The Dodgers magic number is one to clinch the western division of the National League and make the playoffs. Okay so it is the weakest division in baseball, but they are almost in the door and are playing well.

The big differnce that turned their season around was acquiring Manny Ramirez from Boston. His stats are: batting average .398 - on base percentage .491 - Slugging percentage .757

Go Dodgers!

Ugh. It just makes what a brat he was in Boston that much worse. He could play well, he chose not to.

Anyway, seems to be a mutually beneficial trade. The Sox are a much more unified without him. And I bet Francona's blood pressure is much lower.

Not so sure we will sweep but:

DODGERS 2
CUBS 0

looks pretty good. There were not any black cats, Bartman, goats or curses.

Simply:better coach, better pitching, better fielding and better hitting.

Yes, I am a Cubs fan. I guess we will once again wait 'til next year. :( But as Eddie Vedder said in a very moving song (it made me cry!) "Someday We'll Go All the Way".

Interestingly enough the Dodgers and Phillies met late in the year in two series. Each team swept the series that was at home! Bad news for the Dodgers unless we can steal one.

Sounds good. It is interesting that on an ESPN survey the state of New York voted more for the Dodgers winning the World Series than anyone else. I guess New Yorkers would all have a reason to hate the other three.

All laughs aside it should be fun doing the college bowl challenge again this year. Did you by any chance end up with my WVU-Oklahoma Fiesta Bowl stamp? If so I would love to trade one of other stamps I got for it! I have a Buckeye and Clemson one!

BTW, that's on the agenda for the bowl games. One change this year: if you don't have your prize stamp in by the time the first game is played, you're dropped from the pool. I don't want to see you get hosed again IrishRef, by not getting the one continually promised stamp that never came...although you did get some others.

Still, you guys could carve your stamps this far out and be ahead of the game, you know.

Um, well, ah, you know how it goes, being in the shadow of greatness. (laughing) Won't tell anyone how the darts selected my order last time. In that pool, I felt a little like Stan Humphries after the second time he got knocked during a sack just before he retired. He came up obviously not having a clue where it was for a few seconds. I know so little about college football, except to automatically think LSU when I see purple and yellow together or Michigan when dark blue and yellow together.

I turned the game on late, and was surprised to see numbers on the helmets for the Browns players. I don't like it! I am assuming these are some type of throwback helmet? Please tell me this won't be forever . . .
