I think I am hitting almost all of it below – yep, I got college basketball, the Hall of Fame balloting for Cooperstown, college football, the NHL lockout being resolved, and a rant about fishing at the collegiate level. I guess that does leave out NASCAR and horseracing, but if any of the above are your interest you are in look and if none are appealing check back later, as I am sure I will have something else in a few days.
Such a totally foreign place to be for me, but as I have noted a long time ago I can live with out football, could give not an iota of care for pro basketball (college is a different story), but baseball – take away what has historically been America’s sport and a little part of me would die. Oddly enough this season has been one of the more exciting to have come around in several years and that is without the Reds in the picture since really before the All Star break. Sure, they had a chance after the break, but when you are taking at best one of three against teams you should sweep it is hard to make up a great then ten game gap. But that right there is just what one team did that made things so exciting for the season end and they are now heading to the World Series.
Given that my Reds are now eight games up and mathematically almost a lock, I had to give a few comments – especially after football yesterday.
The world series of 2009 is only coming up on game six and it is already November third. Whats more disturbing is that who there is to root for between the Yankees and Phillies.
I like Frank Deford, but I think this morning his thoughts of August not being useful for much were missing a lot of opportunities on his part.
Lately there have been some discussions at the office about the concept of good enough versus achieving perfection before releasing something for public consumption.
