After wagering on 298 NBA games the season (171-127), I found myself on the floor of my Homeboys bar last night not because I lost…but because my last memory of the season will be of Damon “Douchebags” Jones. Yeah, keep holdin’-up three fingers like you matter Damon…I just gave Rae Carruth a call and he also had the Spurs minus 3.5.
Anyway, it’s already the weekend in my hood as my college buddies came in last night and have already broke-out their cheesy-azz lines with the ladies:
While extremely cheesy, I have to say it’s pretty priceless in person…they always rock/paper/scissor for who’s the utility infielder. Anyway, I gotta roll cause I’m scalpin’ some tix for the Cubs game this afternoon…what you think, should I bet on it too? Take it light, and check-in all weekend cause you know I’ll have some stories to go along with the winners!
SAN DIEGO PADRES @ CHICAGO CUBS
It’s a hot day game, and David Wells is old and fat. In addition, Ted Lilly is well rested after being booted in the 1st inning of his last start…Cubs Win, Cubs Win!
ATLANTA BRAVES @ CLEVELAND INDIANS (-1.5 RUNS)
C.C. has pitched two straight shutouts while Atlanta’s starter is named Buddy. Also, the Tribe finally started hitting like they should and should be helped by DH a lot more than Bobby Cox’s over-achieving club…Indians by 4-6 runs
WASHINGTON NATIONALS @ TORONTO BLUE JAYS (-1.5 RUNS)
Takin’ Roy Halladay against a line-up that Peter Gammons couldn’t name is always a good call. Not to mention, the Blue Jays at home and have Matt Stairs’s softball lookin’-azz in the line-up…Jays by 3-5 runs
CHICAGO WHITE SUX @ PITTSBURGH PIRATES (UNDA 9)
Through all the misery, Garland is slowly becoming an ace. As for my Sox bats, I’ll use a quote from Charlie Sheen’s best work “Major League”: THEY’RE STILL SHITTY! Sux/Pirates 4-6 total runs
