Bautista hurt his wrist on Monday so he's on the 15 day DL, and yesterday Lawrie hurt his ankle trying for a foul ball in the camera area, which, for some reason, has a 5-6 foot drop from field level on that side. We're lucky he's only day to day but you wouldn't think so seeing the play.
So my rugby league team is currently sitting on a ten match winning streak and stands alone at the top of the league ladder. The Grand Final is less than 2 months away, and I fully expect my team to be there on the day.
So I've been reliving the club's past premiership glories, such as our 2004 GF win...
At around the 12 minute mark, towards the end of the match, the cameras start focusing on the crowd and this girl, fan of the opposing team is shown:
Am I a bad person to still find this fricken hilarious 8 years later?
And I honestly I dunno about this one. I mean someones gone out of their way to set this up and film it. I'm sure it's hilarious for you guys (I sense Patriot hate? ) , but it feels kinda staged, you know? Like the 'Leave Britney Alone!' vid.
I remember seeing the girl in my clip during the original live telecast. Watching her heart break in real time, as her teams hopes for a game-winning comeback crumble into dust. She was symbolic of our final ultimate triumph over the Roosters (big rivalry there).There's something special about watching such sweet sweet anguish play out before you .
When the Mariners play bad teams, we win. When we play potential playoff teams, we get creamed. BUT at least we still win. I shake my head when I see the Astros these days. They've won 40 games all year. Currently sitting 40.5 games out of first place in their division. W T F.
Texans are basically a shoe-in for AFC South, since it's weakest division in football (IMO). Don't expect a deep playoff run or this "AFC Champions" thing I see a lot of people saying.
Seahawks...we'll have a winning season. Won't win the division, won't make the playoffs, but we'll get over .500
Stupid Syracuse. They've got a homegame against USC right now (USC is tough), so Syracuse was like "oh man, big profile game; lets play it in New York City!!!" Sooo, they're playing at Metlife / Giants Stadium..but the weather is f'n horrible (to the point where a tornado touched down today, what?), and the 2nd half is super-delayed. They sent the players back to the locker room, and the fans out of the seating / bowl area.
Irony: Syracuse plays at home in a Domed stadium. Unbelievable. (AND ITS PROBABLY GONNA PUSH BACK MY NASCAR COVERAGE, TOO, UGHHH)
So true. Way to reward the Syracuse fans for supporting what's been an awful program the last decade, by scheduling "home games" against marquee opponents to be in NYC. They are doing the same with games against Penn State and Notre Dame in the coming years as well. Good to see they are stimulating the Upstate NY economy. I was really glad when the announcer for the game on ESPN (whos an SU alum) called them out for doing this. It's really too bad that they are trying to be "New York's College Team" by tying themselves to the city, rather than the state. If they insist on playing the games outside of the Carrier dome at an NFL stadium (which I don't like to begin with), I'd rather see them play in Buffalo.
Anyways, awesome Saturday of college football from what looked like a poor slate of games in advance. Lots of really close games all day, and some really big upsets. Big Ten got embarrassed again, which is always awesome.
Great sports day today as well...looks like I'll be vegging out again. Opening NFL Sunday, Yanks-Orioles on right now, final round of BMW with Mickelson/Vijay/Tiger/McIlroy all in the top 4. And then the Steelers game tonight.
