2-0 so far in football this week fellaz! Something must be in the air and it smells like baby-power and weed…I guess Travis Henry must be in town! For those of you who stayed-up for the Navy/Pittsburg OT game last night, have you ever seen a coach make a worse decision than Dave Wannstedt did at the goal-line? Here’s the overtime situation…The Panthers are down 3, sitting at the Navy 2 yard-line on 3rd down, and have two tailbacks that have rushed for ova 200 yards (5.3 ypc) behind an OL that is twice the size of the Midshipmen. So what does Wanny do…he has his freshman QB throw two passes that aren’t even close and his players are now forced to walk to the locker-room in-front of a devastating home-crowd. It reminds me of the days when he coached the Bears and after a double-digit loss would say: “Besides those two 50 yard runs, we played a great game defensively.” Nice guy, cool porn-stache, but I’d rather have Ron Santo coaching my high-jump squad than his sorry-azz. As for the Seminoles/Demon Deacons match-up tonight, let’s just say it’s like deciding between grabbing a short-skirt on the corner in a bad neighborhood or hitting-up the 30 options at the Bunny Ranch…I’m skipping the corner and waiting for all the choices this weekend (but of course I have picture of our favorite FL St. fan). As for the diamond action tonight, you know I have some thoughts and will be throwing down on a little action. What you think…
COLORADO ROCKIES (+120) @ ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS
I know Brandon Webb looked flawless against the Cubs in Game 1, but let’s not forget how Doug Davis and the pitcher formerly known as Livan Hernandez also made the Cubbies look. While you’ll counter with how great Webb was all season, I’ll counter with check out how he faired against the Rockies this season: (6 starts: 1-3, 5.77 ERA). Throw-in Colorado’s Jeff Francis and his 2.84 ERA in 3 starts against the D-Backs and I think we have an investment that makes us look like Charles Schwab...20 cents on the M*tha F*ckin dollar! I wish the Rockies didn’t have so many days-off to cool their hot bats, but Zona’s in the same boat and doesn’t have the same big-sticks sitting on-deck (boat/on-deck…damn I’m so frickin’ clever).
Final Score: ROCKIES 4 ZONA 3
