This Week in Sports

Well, sports and teams I care about anyways...

DING DONG THE WITCH IS DEAD! I know it's all about the "What Now" attitude that is spreading through Carrow Road but people are just very happy that "Worthless" has been ousted. Still, if we don't turn things around and find our way to at least 6th, it won't be any better than having him around.

PADRES STAY ALIVE! We went to the games Tuesday and Thursday and they promptly got outscored 7-1 to lose the first two games of the NLDS. They just didn't seem to have any chance of avoiding yet another sweep to the Cardinals. if by magic...they left like 17 runners on base and still found a way to beat them. So, down two games to one, we'll see if they can force a game 5 with a win tonight. If not, I might just find myself a new favorite team next year. Most likely I'll just get my heart broken again next year. I dealt with 1987-1995 and 1999-2003 yet this seems to hurt so much more.

CHARGERS LOSE LATE AGAIN! Marty-Ball has lost the Chargers yet another game. With a 13-7 lead late in the 2nd half, the Chargers allowed a sack on purpose when Scifers got injured attempting to punt out of the end zone. Then, the defense allowed the Ravens to march down the field and score the winning TD. 16-13. Game Over. This brought me back to the Dallas game last year where they lost a late lead by playing too conservative offensively and trusting the defense too much.

BUCCANEERS MAY NOT WIN A GAME! They've lost Simms for a long time, Cadillac doesn't resemble anything close to a decent RB at this point and the defense is old and slow. Add in a talentless O-Line and you get a team who very well might not win a single game this year. You know what? I'm really not surprised. The owners care more about Manchester United than the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I say deport them and seduce some owners into buying the team who really care about winning on a yearly basis and not just once.
