Fearless Weekend Predictions is a weekly column running on Friday afternoons where our resident soothsayer (or whoever we can get) locks down what will transpire in the coming 72 hours. It’s better to get these out before the 7-year is open. The crystal ball gets cloudy.
Well, it’s 9:37 on the Friday night and no FWP yet? Something must be wrong. No SmoothRon this week, no TGC, so I’ll take a shot at this thing. Everyone hold on tight ’cause it could get ugly.
Oakland will continue the death spiral. So the boys are 7-12 in July. That’s not good friends. 3-7 in the last 10 is even worse and now there’s a four game set at home against Texas and we all know how good the A’s are in 4 game sets. Not very. The glass-half-full guys would say a four gamer against Tejas at home is a good way to turn things around. Personally, I just see us getting outhit in at least 2 of 4 if not more. Good times, they keep a rollin’!
Jeff Gordon will kiss the bricks. Yeah, it’s not really going out on a limb to guess Gordon will win. He won the inagural Brickyard and he’s won 4 total. Really, I’m just a Junior fan who hopes the FWP curse on Nascar drivers will hold up.
Another college football player in the state of Kenutcky will have legal problems. The University of Louisville’s current problems are well published around the Internets but now news out of Lexington says Curtis Pulley is having problems of his own. Guess Mike Hartline just became the leader for the position, no matter what Rich is saying at the SEC circus.
You will be so bored that you’ll actually watch soccer. True story, TGC, 2SL, and I were shootin’ pool last night and there was so little sports action on TV that we watched a significant portion of the MLS All-Stars versus West Ham. The soccer wasn’t bad and it was nice to see the MLS show that they can play with the 10th best team in English soccer. Oh yeah David, it’s soccer here. Get used to it you limey bastard. Football is played by oversized men in pads and helmets who slap each other on the butt and reach into one another’s groin to receive the ball. Soccer is so gay isn’t it?
College football continues to approach. With the recent release of NCAA ’09 everyone is getting hyped for the coming season. EDSBS has the count down at 34 days folks. That’s barely over a month. Prepare thyselves.
Billy Gillispie has already taken your girlfriend to Vegas and is currently sleeping with her. Billy Boy has been out in Vegas checking out the AAU tournament scene. Lots of good stuff going on out there as B.C.G. continues to scour the globe for talent.
Well that’s it for this week sports fans. Short but simple and both are largely due to my deficiencies. Sincerest of apologies. Now get out there and have a few drinks and enjoy some baseball. That’s about all you get this weekend!
