Rough football weekend and baseball predictions.
Well, the kids from the HS played hard, especially the defensive unit, but our opponent was also sporting a tough defense, and we lost the game 14-0.
Then, the debacle in Dallas, not that it was unexpected, but it hurt to watch the goodly number of Texas fans cheering in front of us at West End. I don't expect much more out of the Sooners this season, I'm just hoping they can pick up six wins somewhere and get to a bowl game.
On to my favorite sport, Baseball. I hope my Braves can pull out the NLDS with Houston and move on. I'm also rooting for the Angels on the AL side. The Cardinals look tough again this year. I did fairly well on my predictions last year, and I know it's late, but here they are for this year:
Chicago White Sox over Boston Red Sox (duh)
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim over New York Yankees.
Atlanta Braves over Houston Astros
St. Louis Cardinals over San Diego Padres (almost duh)
Angels over White Sox
Braves over Cardinals
The beloved Rally Monkey is Tomahawk chopped. BRAVES WIN! BRAVES WIN! BRAVES WIN!
Update: Are you freaking kidding me? In the immortal words of Rob Schneider in "Waterboy" "Oh no! We suck again!"
18 FREAKING INNINGS, and the Braves lose. It brought back flashbacks of the July 4th-5th 1985 game I attended as a boy.
