Weekend Quick Hits

Is Kenny Rogers a cheater? Maybe, but the Cards still didn’t hit him for 7 innings when he was clean.
Why, oh why, did MSU have to stage the biggest comeback in NCAA history? They were on the verge of John L. Smith getting fired for sure, and now they’re probably on the verge of making it to a bowl game. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy for them holding a record of some kind, but I hate wins that preserve a coach’s job when he shouldn’t have it (see: Bobby Williams’ Citrus Bowl win over Florida which he parlayed into years of MSU futility).
The Redskins are 2-5, and the fans have started to turn on “the legend” Joe Gibbs. Priceless.
Did anyone survive their “survivor” NFL pool this week? That’s the one where you pick one team to win each week, and you can only pick them once a season. I went against the tide and did not pick Jacksonville (lost to Houston) or Philly (lost to TB on a 62-yarder, wow!) or even Seattle (lost big at home to Minnesota). Since I had already taken Indy, I couldn’t pick them against the Deadskins, so I ended up taking, ugh, Arizona over Oakland. I really thought that maybe, just maybe, they would be fired up to show the nation that they weren’t the sorriest team in the NFL. Maybe, just maybe, Matt Leinart had enough of winning qualities in him to rub off on the rest of the team. Alas, it was not to be. Should have taken the J-E-T-S I guess.
Giants-Dallas tonight. Tiki’s retirement tour begins. Feel free to turn the radio on instead of listening to the numb nuts on ESPN.

  1. In our ‘survivor’ pool we had 8 people left out of ten going into the weekend. Now there are only 4. I think three people had the Jags and one person had the Seahawks. I had New England over Buffalo. I feel like I have done a decent job saving some of the better teams but with the NFL you never know what’s gonna happen. After getting smoked on the road at Pittsburgh not too many people thought the Chiefs could beat the Chargers even with homefield advantage.

    Fun times.

    Arizona was my first pick of the year, glad I got that one out of the way!!
