Now that we've finally lost a game, I wanted to give a shout out to the Great Northwest and the Year Two Thousand and Ten, for being a fine place to be (in the world of sports)!
I dunno about you guys, but I'm using up all of my goodwill lately: Beavers game, Ducks game, Blazers game, World Series, NFL on Sunday, and MNF... It's dang tough be a good parent or spouse these days, if you're not lucky enough to have an equally fanatic person by your side...
Which I don't... I tell ya, my DVR and I have done some awesome work together, watching 15 hours of football, 8 hours of baseball and 6 hours of basketball in about 3 hours...
Oh, you don't think so? Well, come watch baseball with me: unless it's bases loaded, or the score changes, we're at speed 3: see the count change, outs or baserunners, and go to speed 4 between innings....
Football? I never watch: punts, field goals, extra points, kickoffs, or the scourge upon all thinking men: first down measurements...
Hoops?: Cut out free throws, and you can make it a 1 hour game...
And the results?
HEY, we've got the NUMBER ONE college football team!
Just think about that! Little ol' Oregon - number one, and extremely likely to play for the US NCAA Division 1A National Collegiate Football Champions!
The Yankmes didn't win the World Serious! America's Team is worse off than the Country! And it's Election Day! (I prefer to think of it as pronouced by the Japanese...) But anyway.... what a country!
So, what are you happiest about?
