Sunday Sports Wrap - October 19, 2008

MLB: Yes, I have a special video to emphasize just how exciting that I feel a Phillies vs. Red Sox World series would be. And yes, that really is my very own animal companion. At any rate, Garza is pitching for the Rays today in Game 7 of the ALCS against the Red Sox. He's done a great job of keeping his emotions in check so far...GO RAYS!

NBA: The preseason continues with three games today. The Los Angeles Lakers are at the bottom of the preseason standings. So what! The NBA preseason does not dictate how a team will do in the actual season. Seriously, the Clippers are on top of the Pacific Division and we all know how long that will last.

NHL: I still can't believe hockey has started again. Two games happen, with one being the Anaheim Ducks vs. Carolina. Let's see how the Ducks pull the season out. We know it will be better than the Kings. When will the Los Angeles Kings be a team again? *sigh*

And yes, there is plenty of NFL today - there are also plenty of people covering it and you'll likely get my complaining about it at some point later in the week.

Today in Sports History

1951 - Babe Didrikson-Zaharias wins the LPGA Texas Women's Golf Open

1981 - The Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Montreal Expos for NL pennant (ah, those were the days).

Is it just me, or is playoff intensity Sexy. Very surprised and happy with the Rays win. Though the pressure of game 7 always get to me so I flipped back n forth from the football gm. Jeff Garcia was clinic good with his drives. I know Phillies probably favored, but I think they rested a little too long and they didn't look that dominate over the Dodgers. I say Rays in 5 I am tempted to give myself a cushion of 6 but will stick with 5
What's up with TO when they win he has a fit b/c he not happy with his touch amount but when they lose he's like oh every things OK
Do you miss the Rams?

Woohoo! They Rays did it! Yesssss! Boston continued to look like the same smug and entitled group they always are until that last out. Bwahaha!

Garcia was The Man yesterday!

TO is killing me in Fantasy.

I miss having 2 football teams in Los Angeles so I guess I do miss the Rams. I don't miss their owner (although it is rude to talk bad of the departed) since she did nothing but badmouth this city after her husband passed away and left her the team. She spent money on them when she moved them but then still had offices here. Go figure. That is my long answer to the bittersweet feeling I have for them.

Haha! I love that you used the video of Gus! He pretty much says it all.

Yeah, I thought it would get the point across!
