So Boston finally breaks the curse!

So. Boston sweeps St. Louis in four games. Wow.

I'm a Cardinals fan. But I have to give credit to the Sox. They came back from a 3-0 deficit to stuff the Yankees, and now they beat St. Louis in a four game sweep.

Again I say, wow.

Boston's last series win was 1918. Neither of my parents were born then. My Maternal Grandmother was 21 (she died at age 91). Women did not yet have the right to vote. World War I was a recent memory. Woodrow Wilson was president. The moon was a light in the sky, not a target to be landed on.

So now it falls to the Cubs to break another long baseball curse.

Excuse me while I roll on the floor laughing!

I love the Red Sox.

So long, Yankees. Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, good-bye!

I love it. A team where some of the players earn more than some other teams finally gets its comeuppance. And they do it by blowing a three game lead, and then getting humiliated in the final game.

Now, the only thing that could be better is if the Bosox win the series. Of course, I'll have a hard time cheering for them against the Cardinals if they're in it, but I think Boston is due.

On the downside, though, John Kerry may have just lost New York!

The other interesting thing that I hadn't considered until someone recently brought it up to me: We could have a Texas Team playing a Massachusetts team...

I don't want to live!!!


Three losses in a row. I hate Iowa!

What is wrong with my beloved buckeyes?

First off, they need to shoot their offensive coordinator. And then the defensive coordinator.

Tressel can keep his job--for now. After all, he did lead the Bucks to a national championship two years ago. And he's beaten Michigan as many times in three years as John Cooper did in 13. So I'm willing to cut him a little slack.

IF they lose to Indiana this Saturday, though, then I'll be leading the lynch mob!

I watched "Fahrenheit 9/11" tonight. I realize that some people may take issue with the facts and obvious bias of this movie. But no one who actually watches it can ever deny that it is an extremely powerful movie. Few movies can make me cry. This one has at every viewing (3 so far)

But what can I do about it?

It may not be much, but tonight I started a new tradition for myself.

Tonight, and for as many nights as possible in the forseeable future, I will silently give the following prayer to God:

Dear God,

Please extend your hand and give some measure of comfort to Lila Lipscomb and all of the other mothers, fathers, daughters, sons, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces, grandmothers, grandfathers, grandchildren and all other relatives of the members of the United States Armed Forces who gave their lives in the service of their country. I can never hope to repay the debt I owe them, but maybe I can, through this simple prayer, assure that their sacrifices will never be in vain.

All I can hope is that God will listen. I firmly believe that God exists. He hears all prayers. He just doesn't always give you the answer you want. I just hope this request is simple enough that he will grant it.

No, Bucks!

What the fuck is wrong with the Buckeyes?!

Why don't they have an offense?!

Why is the previously much-vaunted unstoppable Buckeye defensive machine leaking like the proverbial sieve?!

Why do I continue to torture myself?!

Maybe because I know they are capable of greatness. They did win the National Championship just 2 years ago. And I know that Jim Tressel is capable of doing great things as a head coach. He has a lot of very talented players. He just needs to fire his offensive coordinator.

Seriously. The Buckeyes scored 13 points against wisconsin. Six of those points came on a punt returned for a touchdown. That means the only offensive points came from the talented foot of kicker Mike Nugent. That means no offense.

I've pretty much written off the season this year. There's always next year, I guess.

OK, OK. I know. I haven't posted in three weeks. STFU already! I've been busy.

O.K., I admit it. I've just been lazy!

God, I can't believe it's already October.

Or maybe I should say it's Octobrrrrr!

It was COLD this morning!

So, I watched the debate last night. I was quite impressed with Kerry's performance. Not that it changed my mind one whit. I've always believed that Duhbya is a clueless idiot. Last night just comfirmed it,.

Seriously. How did this boob ever become the president?

He is, in my opinion, living proof that if you have enough money, you can put any idiot in the White House.

Meanwhile, the Republican smear machine continues to attack Kerry. Maybe because they can't point to any accomplishments they have made.

I heard an interesting statistic the other day. Bush is the first president since John Quincy Adams to never veto a single bill that Congress passed.

The republicans currently control all three branches of government. They have for the last 2 years now. So why haven't they fixed all of America's problems yet?

You can get a lot done in two years. Unless, of course, you're a republican.

Vote early. Vote often.
