Whew, what a busy weekend in sports! If you're anything like me, all you did was drink, watch sports, and drink some more over the past two-and-a-half days. So much to talk about, but first, the Patriots. HMLS and I decided to try a new watering hole for our NFL Sunday game-watching/liver-punishing. Upon entering, we found that it had 64oz beers, TVs in every booth with the ability to watch EVERY NFL game, a DJ who spun some tunes during commercial breaks, and Miller Lite girls with asses only a horny boy dreams about. Needless to say, we've found our hangout that combines sports, booze, and quality masturbation material, and we're not planning on going anywhere else for a while.
Depending on if you're a glass-half-full or glass-half-empty kind of person, you could look at the Pats game from yesterday a number of different ways. Cassel lead them from behind in the 4th quarter, none of those interceptions were particularly bad throws (in fact, neither were really his fault), and they moved into a tie for first with the win. Yay! OR...The secondary looked like garbage, the Rams didn't have Steven Jackson and they STILL almost beat us, and Cassel had 2 picks and only 1 TD. Boo! I'm sure HMLS will have a fair and balanced recap of the game coming up today. And if he's sounding a little homer-ish, knock him down a peg. Some suggestions:
How many points did BC's defense let up this weekend again?
Wow, Matt Ryan was soooo nasty yesterday!
Elsewhere in the sports world, there's something called the "World Series" going on right now, and I'm honestly surprised how it's shaking down. I figured Tampa would be running away with this thing, but the Phils and their power hitters (e.g. Ryan Howard, Chase Utley, Joe Blanton) are out-slugging the Rays. Also, Longoria and Upton are like a combined 1 for 438. Getting cold at the wrong time. It could all end tonight! Plus, we got the Colts/Titans on MNF football, and the Celtics season opener tomorrow! You know what that means...more excuses to drink! Which leads me to my question for the masses: Where is your favorite place to watch a game?
