I actually have a calm feeling about tonights game. My initial feeling for some reason is that the Indians are going to win 13-2. My second thought was that it was going to be 88-7.

Either way, I'll take it.

What the expletive?!!?!

BUNT! Freaking bunt!

What the expletive?!!?!

Down by 1. Man on second. No outs.



Instead, three freaking straight lineouts to third.

For once I will give a Yankee some credit. Laura Posada, the wife of ole Georgie Posada, is mighty hot. She was on a few episodes of American Chopper and I give her 9 thumbs up.

The Yankees bike for their foundation actually came out quite nicely too. I'm by no means a fan of the subject manner, but the colors and all the details were pretty cool.

What is Nissan going to call the Skyline GT-R when they bring it over? Is it going to be the Infiniti G35 GT-R? That sounds stupid. Is it going to be under the Nissan umbrella? That also has its drawbacks. First and foremost being that the Z car has always been the Nissan sports car champ. Nissan Skyline is something that most car lovers are well familiar with though. Infiniti Skyline... not so much. The Skyline name is great, but it's the G35 over here. That leads me to believe that the new car will be called the Infiniti G35 GT-R. Maybe they'll just go with the Infiniti GT-R. That would be better I think.

We should all know by 2007. I'm not sure if that's model year or calendar year though...

The Twins suck. They've scored a whopping 3 freaking runs in the last three games combined. Way to roll over for the White Sox. Wouldn't want to actually risk winning the game.

And once again, that's how a season that's supposed to be great turns into one that's not.

The defense played better in the second half, but they certainly didn't strike me as an elite defense.

The offense didn't go anywhere under Kirsch. The option offense isn't fooling anyone. Ever. I'd rather him just set up for a regular pass and then take off and run. He did it in the past and it was a lot more successful than this new option offense. As far as I'm aware he only scrambled once the whole game, and it went for 20 yards. Why not try it again?

The game went from me thinking they deserved to lose but were going to win to deserving to lose and having lost.

If this is the best they've got, it's going to be a long season.
CUZ's halftime report.

Minnesota - 10
Purdue - 7

What I should've said earlier is that Minnesota will get about 120 rushing yards in the first half.

The first couple of drives for Minnesota were ridiculous. It looked like a pro team on offense and a junior high school team on defense. Purdue could not tackle anyone. They were very lucky to escape on that first drive and not allow any points.

In the second quarter the defense played better, but that's because it couldn't play any worse. It seemed to me like they were tightening up as play went on. It will be interesting to see what happens in the second half.

Now, for the Purdue offense. Kirsch played like crap. Complete crap. Underthrowing wide open receivers who were 10 yards away from him. Overthrowing wide open receivers were were 10 yards away from him. He didn't do a good job running the option. He played terribly. Yet somehow they're only down by 3 at half time. It took a miracle play, but I'll take it.

Kirsch has to play better. If this is the best he's got, I'd bench him.
It's showdown day. The NCAA's number 1 rushing defense (Purdue - 16 yards per game) against the NCAA's number 1 rushing offense (Minnesota - 335 yards per game.)

Who wins? I think Purdue will win, but I can't see them holding Minnesota to 16 rushing yards. I think the Gophers will hit for about 120 rushing yards and Purdue will win the game 24 - 16.

Even when the Indians play like crap, they still win. Granted it's against the Royals, but still, that counts for something. Now if only the sucky Twins could win another game against the White Sox, that would be great.

Hurricane Rita is HUGE! It stretched from Merida, Mexico to Tampa, Florida.

That is one big storm, and it will be worse than Katrina. There are no levies to break in Galveston though, as the city is actually above water, but not by much. There will be flooding, but it shouldn't be anything of the magnitude of New Orleans.

This storm itself will be worse than Katrina, but the overall damage should not be anywhere near as high.
Well they lost. They should've won, but they were throwing the ball around like idiots in the 7th inning. If they had not let in that last unearned run, when they scored a run in the 9th they would've won instead of tied.

That one team keeps winning. Watching the game I don't even feel nervous now. Yes, I still yell at the TV, but I expect them to win now. It's quite a different feeling. I will not publish again until they lose.

This is somewhat similar to what WTAM (the flagship station for that one team) is doing. There is a board operator there who is undefeated for the entire season. Whenever he worked the boards that team won. Now the staff of that station has started chipping in to pay him extra so that he stays for every game. They started about a week ago and since then they haven't lost. His name is Dirty Kurt. The players have even called in promo's thanking Dirty Kurt. It's pretty funny. Of course, I just did a horrible job explaining it...

Once again, I will comment that the Browns seem headed in the right direction. Even when they lose, there is at least something good that happened. They looked great for the first 20 minutes of the Cincinnati game. Then they actually looked pretty good for the whole Green Bay game.

Initially I had predicted that they'd win from 2 to 4 games. I still think that's about right, but I don't actually feel negatively about them like I did under Emperor Davis.

Freaking Choker Dame. The one time in the world when it would be beneficial for them to win, they lose. What a pile of ass. They suck and I hate them. Now I'm probably going to get screwed on those extra tickets that I have. Son of a crap!

I hope Beano Cook gets runover by a very slow clown riding a tricycle, and I hope that clown has very bad gass.

"OH MY GOD! NOTRE DAME WILL WIN THE NEXT 90000 CHAMPIONSHIPS! Look at my double chin! It's quivering with excitement! The Irish are back! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! WE WIN WE WIN WE WIN! We are awesome! Everyone sucks! The Irish rule! We are so great! Look at how great we are! I'm screaming! We won 2 games! Where's the BCS trophy! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" - Beano Cook

Shut the freak up. It's 2 damn games and now you lost to Michigan State for the 90th time in a row. It makes me want to shoot my TV.

Friday, September 16, 2005

It seems like the longer I go without publishing this page (due to technical dificulties originally, but not now) that a certain team keeps on winning. I think it's because the people who post here cannot jinx that team. Yay team!

Thursday, September 15, 2005

Of course! I didn't actually want to win the freaking auction now because cheaper tickets have been brought to my attention, and I won. Great! Now I have two extra tickets that I need to get rid of. I'll probably just put them back up on eBay as soon as I get them.

Wednesday, September 14, 2005

The bidding escalated quote a bit today, so now it's even less likely that I'm going to win, as I am already at my limit - which also happens to be way higher that it should be.

Tuesday, September 13, 2005

I've bid on those Notre Dame tickets. I don't think I'm going to actually win, but you never know.

Also, King's Island is freaking stupid. Who the hell closes an amusement park in September and then re-opens it in October????? King's Island, that's who. We found out Friday night that the stupid place was closed after Labor Day and wouldn't re-open until October. That's brilliant. Let's close the place while it's still warm and re-open it when it's snowing. GREAT! Now I have to go down there on October 15th.

Monday, September 12, 2005

If anyone wants to go to the Purdue - Notre Dame game, the let me know ASAP. By ASAP I mean by tomorrow afternoon. Also, let me know how much you're willing to pay for a ticket.

Friday, September 9, 2005

I'm heading down to King's Island for the weekend, so once again you'll be without my insight.

I bought a new toy today. Because I needed it. I purchased the new iPod Nano. In black. It's sleek. I should be receiving it early next week. Yay for necessities.

Eric brought this article to my attention. This was published in the October 2004 issue. The opening paragraphs read like they could've been in the paper this week. It's eerie how close the New Orleans Hurricane Pam simulation came to being EXACTLY right.

Wednesday, September 7, 2005

There are reports circulating that the Cavs have signed Damon Jones. THe last step is to sign Tractor Traylor again, and I think the Cavs will have pulled off the best offseason that anyone could've realistically expected. I'm pretty exicted, which can only mean that they will end up missing the playoffs by 40 games.

I hate school. Have I mentioned that before?

We had class on Monday. The prof was down in Columbus on Wednesday, so no class. Monday was Labor Day, so no class. Now we freaking have a test on Wednesday. We've had a whole 1 day of class and now a test.

I hate school.

Also, why aren't my posts showing up? I blame school.

The Sporting News predicts the Browns will go 2-14 this year. That's good.

The reason for the great demo on the F-18 is because it was the newest version... the F-18F Super Hornet.

Very impressive.

Saturday, September 3, 2005

At the Cleveland International Air Show today I saw probably the best F-18 tactical demo that I've ever seen. The only performance I can compare it to really is the SU-37 with thrust vectoring. The B-1 on the other hand wasn't good. They didn't fly low enough or fast enough. In years past it was great, but not so this year. Lastly, I wonder if the Thunderbirds are still recovering from when they had two planes touch during a performance a while back. The opposing solos really didn't do much at all, and one of them left the show in mid stream. I haven't heard anything yet, but I guess I'll know for sure tomorrow when I'm back at the show.

New Orleans: Beyond Thunder Dome.

I was talking to a friend at work who is a former Marine. He was stationed in Somalia for about 6 months and he said that the stuff going on in New Orleans right now reminded him of the stuff going on in Somalia. I never ever thought that the United States could be compared to a third world country, but through the desperation and lawlessness of the residents, I can see how it could be compared.
