Weekend recap

The seasons are starting to change. There’s a slight new crisp fall smell in the air, the temperatures are getting just a little cooler, and I had the first fantasy football draft of the season yesterday. Bring on the gridiron.

1. We had a preseason football game on Friday that tested the limits of my marriage. It was Redskins vs. Patriots. Of course the good guys won, but I must say, the Skins didn’t suck as badly as I thought they would. Convinced me to draft Santana Moss though.

2. Jay Cutler must have been real excited to head back to Denver and show the Broncos what he made them get rid of. Unfortunately, the Bears actually did win, though the Denver fans sure let him hear it. At least none of these games count. Nowhere is that more true than in the battle of the Big Apple where the Jets beat the Giants. Only in the preseason. Hey! Detroit won a game!

3. Tiger Woods lost again this weekend, coming in second at The Barclays. He is not having a lucky year thus far.

4. The Brewers beat the Pirates in Milwaukee. Not that this means anything, we just haven’t talked about the Pirates lately. Except that this beating that the Pirates took is the 21st consecutive loss to Milwaukee at Miller Park.

“That’s obviously a horrible stat,” said Pirates third baseman Andy LaRoche, a minor leaguer for the Dodgers when Pittsburgh last won in Milwaukee on May 3, 2007. “I knew it was a lot, I didn’t know how many it was. We still go out there and try to win no matter who we’re playing.”

Poor, poor Pirates. In case you were wondering, there are 34 games left in the season. They would need to go 29-5 to break the .500 mark. Looks like it isn’t happening this year.

5. It looks like our hopes that Nick Saban will not be the coach of the Crimson Tide by Sept. 5 will not come true. He signed an extension keeping him in place until 2017. In related news: Only 5 days until the beatdown of Alabama. Go Hokies!

  1. C Gally Says:

    Are the Pirates mathematiccally eliminated from playoff contention yet? Has football started?

    …oh it has? Well then.

  2. C Gally Says:

    Also, is that a Minnesota Wild playoff t-shirt?

  3. The Northerner Says:

    No they have not been mathematically eliminated yet. They will be eliminated in 6 losses. I'll be sure to let you know.

    Yes that is a Minnesota Wild "Stanley Cup Playoffs" shirt.

    Now I have two questions for you: What is Nor-Tech? And why is Sumeet wearing their shirt?
