Friday 5 – Our Football Teams

For those of you that haven’t been counting down for nearly six months, football season officially starts in less than five weeks with the first games of the college season being on Thursday, September 2. This means I thought it would be a good time for us to evaluate our personal desires for how we would (realistically) like our respective teams to fare this season. Bryan and I are both Tennessee Vols fans, he’s a Missouri Tigers fan, I’m an Indianapolis Colts fan and he’s a St. Louis Rams fan. So for our Friday 5 I’ll put up the schedule for each game, how many wins we expect/hope that team to get and at then end for the final part, to complete the ‘5’ in Friday 5 I will put up a total. I will also plan on putting up some sort of weekly chart or graph or both or something to provide something to look at for the progressions our teams our making towards the goals that we are setting for them. Let’s get started: Continue reading

5 Transactions I’d Like To See

The glorious return to blogdom was supposed to happen on Sunday when Weller returned from wherever he was.  Since it’s now Wednesday and the last time I talked to him he was playing Monopoly in Indiana, I’m going to go ahead and start the revolution now.  Or as my wife put it, “You both suck, someone post something.”

This is for you, dear.

Anyway, the Major League Baseball Trade Deadline is this Saturday and there will be plenty of action before then.  So for our first post in a while I’m going to give you five moves that I’d like to see happen (or not happen, ooooo).

Week in Review…Kind Of

Well last week was quite a whirlwind but for some reason the sports world didn’t stop for me.  I can’t figure out why.

Anyway, I’m home now and so I figured I’d do a little quick hit post and try to cover the big stories that happened while I was gone.  We’ll see how it goes.

WMD – QB Point System

I’ve been in a few debates about Peyton Manning recently. Well, a few more than I usually find myself in that is. Either way, people always talk about Super Bowls. I don’t understand that, because it’s a team sport. Not only is it a team sport, it is the ultimate team sport. Though despite this, I decided I would make a point system for seasonal accomplishments: Super Bowl wins, MVP awards, AP First-Team All-Pros, and Pro Bowls. I say that that the accomplishment of winning one or more Super Bowls only solidifies the case for an already impressive career, however most people out there like to have Super Bowl wins be what defines a players career.

Home Run Derby Time

Every year before the Home Run Derby I like to pull out a few facts about each participant and then try to guess a winner.  It kind of worked in 2008, and not so much last year.  I know we’re still lacking two entrants but I’m off to Columbia for my wedding tomorrow.  I won’t actually get to watch the Derby but I’ve got it DVR’ed and I’ll watch it when we get back from Barbados.  One of our friends over at Doin’ Work will be there, though, so go read his account.

Alright, first off, we have our six players: Continue reading

Good News For Me

Bryan put up a link to an ESPN article yesterday and I’m going to follow suit, the article I’m linking to, however, is much shorter. It’s an article about Joseph Addai and Derek Dooley. And it’s a good article about Joseph Addai and Derek Dooley, which is good news for both my Colts and my Vols.

Here’s the link.
