* Let's start off with the good news, the Red Sox won two out of three against the Texas Rangers. Two great wins, sandwiched with a Tim Wakefield ass kicking. Paul Byrd looked fantastic yesterday, throwing 6 1/3 scoreless innings. Large Father hit two home runs his first since mid August, and Jason Bay has made us all forget about Manny. We are now 1.5 games behind the Rays, who got swept by the 3rd PLACE TORONTO BLUE JAYS. Yes, thats right the Yankees are now in FOURTH PLACE, I think its pretty safe to say that their playoff chances are slim to shit. The Sox are looking strong so for now lets forget about that injured quarterback and get set for one of the biggest series of the year. Who would have thought, that a September series against the Rays would be so huge?
* Ok, lets get this out of the way. I have a whole piece coming up around noon about the Brady injury. It sucks, big donkey nuts and I don't want to sound redundant so you will have to wait until later to hear my thoughts about it. The Matt Cassell led Patriots score only 17 points against the Chiefs, and won the game on a last minute goal line stand by our defense. Remember all the talk about how susceptible our defense was going to be? We stopped Damon Huard dead in his track, DAMON HUARD I SAID. Hobbs looked pretty nasty, and Larry Johnson never got anything started. I think our biggest kudos should go to Dwayne Bowe who almost single handily gave us the game. He did score a touchdown, but dropped countless passes over a much shorter Ellis Hobbs. I can't talk about the Patriots anymore, sorry need to change the subject...
* Back on Saturday my Boston College Eagles took the giant swan dive as well. Chris Crane was worse than we thought he was. He missed wide open receivers, had trouble making reads of the d, and well sucked. You will be hearing this alot, but jesus I have no hopes for this team. The defense of the Eagles did everything possible to keep the Eagles in the game, but when Crane was sacked in the end zone for a safety it was over. Next up is UCF, who barely lost to USF and will kick the piss out of the Eagles in two weeks. Is Coach Jags seriously going to stick with this kid all season? He is painfully bad to watch, I miss Matt Ryan already. BC has two red shirted freshman, maybe one of them can throw a football..
* The one thing we can celebrate is that fantasy team OsiHumanUrine is crowned the first fantasy player completely fucked by injury. His options for replacing Brady are: his backup Matt Ryan, Cassell, Tavaris Jackson or Trent Edwards. Good luck next year Smarty Barrett!
As you can this was a terrible weekend of sports. I am grouchy and pissed off, if you want to taunt me about Brady, fuck off.
