All-Star Adventure (Part 1)

As I mentioned in a previous post, I got tickets to both the Home Run Derby and the All-Star Game in St. Louis.  The weather was perfect, the food was good and the beer was cold.  That’s a recipe for an excellent time at the ballpark.

I saw way too much stuff to cram into one post, so this will have to be split up.  I’m not sure how many it will take, but I will try to be concise.  No promises, though.

February 2009 – Important Events

This is something new that I’m going to try to do each month. I will give each date and list important events, games and/or something in sports history that have happened on that date. I will do my best to provide at least one thing for each day. If I forget anything feel free to let me know if a comment. Without further ado, here it is: Continue reading

Habs Fans Are Serious About Their All-Star Game

At first glance, it just looks like the Montreal Canadiens are on track to be the first team to have their entire starting lineup start the NHL All-Star game in January.  After the first day of voting six Habs players virtually doubled the 7th place vote getter, Alexander Semin.  Habs netminder, Carey Price, did double the Western Conference’s leading vote getter, Roberto Luongo.  I know Montreal loves its hockey, but the least they could do is be a little more inconspicuous.  I mean, come on.

Here is another article about the cheating.  Here are the current totals.  Good Stuff.

In other news, Pacman Jones is coming back.  I’m giving him four games before he hits a stripper or something.

The US Men’s National Soccer Team defeated Guatemala 2-0 in Denver tonight.  This was the final game in this stage of qualifying, but the US had already advanced so the game really didn’t matter.  In my opinion, we looked very dangerous up front, just had a little trouble finishing.  Freddy Adu did score a brilliant free kick for his first international goal.  I’d post the video but is down at the moment, maybe later.

The Royals traded for Coco Crisp this morning.  That’s about all that needs to be said about that.

Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday night, faithful readers, I’m going to watch Die Hard.
