Preface this with my apologies to Mr. Y for rubbing this in...

Dodgers and Cardinals set a new record tonight for a mark in playoff hitting futility: 30 runners left stranded on base.  L.A. left 16 runners, and the Cardinals stranded 14.  L.A. won the game 5-3 to join the Yankees and Phillies as teams to take 1-0 leads in their first round series.

Yeah, I watched the first two hours of the game, and they had only played four innings. Kudos to the pitchers for keeping the score low despite two phenomenal offences, but I was frustrated on several occasions.

Unfortunately, I was prevented from recording the last half (as I usually do with late games) due to blackout restrictions, but I read on worldseries.com the results.

Two words about tonight's game:  Matt Holliday - His muff of a fly ball on what would have been the game's final play enables the Dodgers to put together a 9th-inning 2-out rally that sinks the Cards.  Dodgers 2, Cardinals 0.

Sickening. We really needed that win. Maybe we can pull off two in St. Louis, but back in L.A. a win is going to be tough.

Is baseball season over yet?  Man, I hope this is the last season in the history of MLB baseball.  Hate watching sportscenter Monday morning and having all these stupid highlights of baseball games in between the highlights of NFL Sunday.  THE MOST BORING SPORT EVA!  (note: said only in good fun, but i am honest).

LOL, perhaps one day (I honestly believe Emelianenko will never sign with the UFC; he just doesn't seem too interested in working for Dana "****ing" White).  I think Lesnar would be a very interesting opponent for Fedor, and if the fight ever does come to fruition it would be awesome to see Fedor train with Alexander Karelin to improve his wrestling abilities.  Still, excited for the Rua vs. Machida fight on the 24th.  It's a shame NSAC doesn't allow soccer kicks and stomps, it was Rua's bread and butter.  Still, even though he is a huge underdog, I believe Rua will win the belt on the 24th.
Finally, I do miss PrideFC so very much (dispite connections with the yakuza).

Yeah, right. Roll Eyes  And what have you been smoking? Wink  You do realize that the SEC currently has three teams ranked in the Top 5 and that one of them is the defending national champions, and that these defending champion Florida Gators returned at least half of the starting lineup that won last year's title?

Not when LSU loses by 10 points at home.  LSU beat themselves with penalties and turnovers.  Florida is no better.  I don't know why everyone likes the SEC?   Huh

I haven't been smoking anything.  My Terps are getting smoked.  Navy is 4-2 (let's see any SEC team stop the wishbone attack).  The SEC is way overrated even more overrated than Ohio St. and Notre Dame.   Smiley  Finally, before there was Florida, there was U. of Miami and the swagger (so what if they lost to Va. Tech, that was a good game).

I actually anticipated Ole Miss being our first loss. Their defense is REAL. Bama has a great offense, averaging more than 30 points per game until today; and Ole Miss held us to only one touchdown. We couldn't get into the end zone although we were inside the red zone on numerous occasions. We won 22-3 on five field goals and one TD.

Don't forget Ole Miss beat Fla last year.

The Tide still has a tough road ahead. Tennessee, LSU, and the cow college (aka Auburn) will all be difficult. In the SEC, every game is a dog fight. It's the most physical conference for sure. Even Vandy and Kentucky will knock your head off.

It should be Bama and Fla in the SEC championship. But we do have to get past LSU. But history shows that we own the bayou!

LSU beat themselves with penalties and turnovers.
Likely excuse. Roll Eyes  LSU only turned the ball over only once (to match the Gators' one turnover), and they weren't whistled for all that many penalties.  LSU lost because the nation's best defense held their rushing game to little more than two yards per carry and sacked their QB five times, not because of penalties and turnovers.

Where the **** have you been, SolEX?  This is the first time the Angels have ever beaten the Red Sox in a playoff series.  Prior to Boston's loss to the Angels in Game 3 of the 2008 ALDS, a series the Red Sox eventually won 3-1, Boston even had an 11-game postseason winning streak against the Angels, dating back to their comeback from down 1-3 to win the 1986 ALCS.  That streak is to date the record for most consecutive postseason wins by one team over another.  FTR, the Red Sox eliminated the California/Anaheim/Los Angeles Angels from the postseason in the 1986 ALCS (4-3), the 2004 ALDS (3-0), the 2007 ALDS (3-0), and the 2008 ALDS (3-1).

Did anyone see the Broncos' retro uniforms today?  Aren't they the most hideous uniforms you've ever seen? Tongue

And what about Cleveland Browns QB Derek Anderson, with his pass efficiency rating of 15.1 against Buffalo? (2 completions out of 17 passes thrown for 23 yards, 0 TD, and 1 interception) Shocked  Despite his ineptitude, the Browns still won 6-3.

Oops, I was making the observation that the Red Sox and Angels played each other for 3 straight years in the ALDS.  Seemed to me that the Angels won for 3 straight seasons with their recent series victory in the ALDS.   Embarrassed

As the Baltimore Ravens showed a few years ago, a competent QB is not needed to win in the NFL.

However, Derek Anderson is damaged goods (and Brady Quinn is right behind him).  Some HS football program could use them as a head coaches down the road.

Meanwhile, Minnesota is 5-0 and the Purple People Eaters have their eyes on a Purple team coming into their Dome in 6 days.

They would have been OK except for those ridiculous socks!

BTW, this another reason why I don't like pro football- the uniforms are terrible. What's up with the stupid rule about having to have the legs completely covered?

College uniforms are so much cooler.

Other than the Broncos' uniform (I was hoping to see the Sky Blue and Orange uniforms), I was pleased to see some of the traditional uniforms worn yesterday.  The Rams' uniform (granted it is more or less the same, but I prefer the Blue and Yellow over the actual Gold and Blue), the Patriots' (really prefer their throwback uniform compared to the one they wear now-a-days) and the Vikings last Monday night (once more, more or less the same as now, but I prefer the strip down the side of the pant legs over the weird pointy thing they and the Carninals have on their jerseys and pants).
Also, the Titans should wear the old Oilers' uniform.
The Jets use of the old Titans' uniform is a disgrace; they are already wearing the throwback uniform and should keep it that way lol.
IMO, the worst uniform in the NFL belongs to the Seahawks.
IMO the best uniforms: Skins, Bears, Packers (when the visiting team), and 49ers.

Although nothing beats those simple classy Bama uniforms, I gotta say that the Ducks have some cool threads man. Wink My sons like to watch Oregon because of the uniforms.

Here some other college uniforms I like (with no bearing on my like for these teams):

Penn State

Notre Dame

Georgia Tech

USC

Army

Navy

LSU (hate to say it Tongue)

Of course!

Who has qualified so far? I'm guessing Ivory Coast, Ghana, and Senegal so far? What about Cameroon, South Africa, and Nigeria?

It's hard for me to keep up, so please keep us apprised. How awesome would it be for an African team to finally win the World Cup in South Africa!

Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire have qualified. Three places left up for grabs. I predict Cameroon, Nigeria, and Algeria.

well, Egypt only needs to be Algeria by three goals  Sad

Anyway, the Nov. 14th game between Algeria and Egypt, does anyone have any idea what time that game will be played?  FIFA doesn't say.

And South Africa of course is automatically qualified.

I saw the US/Cameroon game, and I must say Cameroon was playing very well. US won, though, and they are looking very promising, especially since the defeat of Spain last year. After so many years when we didn't even qualify, I'm looking forward to my Yankees actually making a decent appearance for once.

Fortunately for the immediate short term, though, the offensive unit of their next opponent, the Cleveland Browns, hasn't been able to play their way out of a wet paper bag.
