If Sports Were Girlfriend Relationships…

NFL Logo

The steady, long-term, daytime girlfriend.  

Very pretty, but not flashy and over the top (both in and out of bed).  We spend the most time hanging out after work and during the day on weekends.  Take road trips just to see in person for a few hours and super comfortable with doing the introduction to all my friends since they really like her too.  And that might be a problem since everyone also gawks at Miss Popular.  However, there’s nothing of a high reward at the end of the day (aka the Buffalo Bills in the SB and every fantasy season).  Although things are steady, except for the occasional disagreement over something trivial that got out of hand (aka forgetting an important relationship date/the referee lockout), they are not surprising and sometimes guys gotta mix it up a bit.

College Football Week Six Preview

There are a lot of great games throughout college football this weekend, as most teams are getting into the meat of their schedule with conference play. With only one more week of games after this one before the first BCS rankings come out (during week 8 of the season), teams in the top 15 will be jockeying for position in that first ranking. It has already started with #13 USC withstanding an early surge from Utah last night before eventually falling to the Trojans 28 to 18. USC’s offensive line struggled in the first quarter with two bad snaps leading to fumbles deep in their own territory that resulted in 14 relatively easy points. I’ll spotlight some of Saturday’s big games with my weekly picks. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention an absolutely pivotal game in the Pac-12 North with #23Washington squaring off at #2 Oregon. However, since Washington is my team, I will not be making a pick in this game for the blog. I will say that this is the first real test for Oregon who played a Pillsbury non-conference schedule and rolled Arizona 42 to zero, and their chance to prove they are indeed deserving of that #2 overall ranking. Now for my picks:

The Washington Nationals and the Great Leap Forward

[Image courtesy of Yahoo! Sports]

Let it be known that on the 1st of October,the year of our lord two thousand and twelve, the franchise formerly known as the Les Expos de Montréal and currently reincarnated as the second coming of Jesus Washington Bryce Harpers Washington Nationals won their first MLB division title and with it, of course, the opportunity to play several games into October.  The ultimate prize: a World Series Title (pan to Yankee fans yawning).  For a city that has endured a hate-love-anger-hate-love relationship with its sports franchises (coupled with the fact that the team with the most recent success and rise in popularity, the NHL franchise Capitals, has been forced into non-existence by its own league) the city of Washington was due some winning time.  In 1971, the Washington Senators Part Deux departed the Chocolate City for Dallas and baseball has been non-existent in the region ever since.  Then again there was a franchise less than an hour up the road in Baltimore that won titles left and right and has sent several players to Cooperstown on top of playing in one of the most beautiful stadiums in all the land.  But for the people of the Washington metro area, that was a (Woodrow Wilson) bridge too far (pan to all Yankees, Phillies, Red Sox fans that live outside the NYC, Philadelphia, and Boston city limits shifting in their chairs awkwardly).  So, after decades of shunning (or being shunned by) the baseball world, local fans have embraced this upstart, Rock the Other Red franchise and proudly hang all their 2012 curly W’s with pride.
