When I grow up, I want to be Yordan Alvarez.
Three trips to the World Series in five years for the ‘Stros. Steal THAT sign, bitches. Bang THAT trash can.
What a weird (but wonderful) ALCS.. It looked like Houston was hopelessly outclassed after three games, when the Sawks had more Grand Slams than Denny’s. Then Boston receded faster than my hairline. And now objects at rest tend to remain at rest.
Hey, Dodgers and Braves. Y’all work it out. Seeya next week.
I’m not going to call this a “lackluster” Saturday in college football. There is no such thing. But a lot of today’s matchups are lower profile than what we’ve seen the past two weeks. That’s ok. It’s still The Great Game.
And I am very much into: (my picks in CAPS)
Wake Forest at ARMY (Black Knights can make you look bad, even when you’re not.)
Kansas State at TEXAS TECH (Hell, yes, this is a shaky pick…)
WISCONSIN at Purdue (You’ve had your fun, Boilers…)
LSU at OLE MISS (Wow, they’re both in caps, right? I’m taking the home team.)
West Virginia at TCU (This will be fun. Gary Patterson will go full-blown Al Pacino on the sidelines at least twice.)
UTSA at La.Tech (Although this is a “watch yo ass” game for the unbeaten Roadrunners.)
USC at NOTRE DAME (If Brian Kelly beats the Trojans tonight, is he coaching them next year?)
Pro Pig tomorrow. Bengals-Ravens will rock!
