Sad Piano, play on.

My Sports Weekend was below average:

Here are the 4 games I tuned in to watch after anticipation built all week!


Saturday, 6:30 am: My Beloved Liverpool was routed at cross town rival, Everton . It is bad enough to lose, but to get pounded 3-0 by a team that was a huge underdog is flat out a sickening way to spend your early Saturday morning. Sucked.

Saturday, 7:00 pm: After recovering from the earlier soccer disaster, Texas is humbled by Ohio State …While I may have expected Ohio State to win this game, I surely did not expect it to be that easy.

Sunday 3:15 pm: New day, new hope in the NFL. So, how would the two games I care most about go? The Cowboys surrender 24 straight points to the Jaguars in Jacksonville somehow losing a game that they should have won.

Sunday 9:00pm (Delayed): Because I am a masochist, and even though I knew the final score, I had to see with my own eyes the carnage of the Bears killing my Packers, 26-0 …And, yes. It was as bad as you would imagine. Ashes to ashes and dust to dust. The Packers have returned to the abortion I used to watch in the 1980’s. They will be lucky to win 4 this season.

So, there you have it. I watched teams I care about play 4 games this weekend, and took the collar. 0-4. It is tough to do this, but I accomplished it in week 1 of football season.

That is the most talented Packers team that Favre has ever played on??

I think you just said you care about longwhorn. Say it ain't so, Bob.

You care about longhorn??? I dont think I have heard you claim any affiliation with them in the past. Please explain.

What is wrong about caring about a team that we talk about all the time?

Teams I care about:
Packers
Brewers
Bucks
Blackhawks
Stars
Cowboys
Mavericks
Rangers
Hokies
Longhorns
Aggies
Red Raiders

All to varying degrees, but sure, I care about them enough to follow them closely and enjoy their success against teams not on this list.

Teams I don't care for:
Red Wings
Vikings
Bears
Eagles
Spurs
Sooners

I generally cheer for whoever is playing against them.

Of course, I was only speaking of domestic teams. For European likes and dislikes, take wild guesses.

Your day was made worse when Man U and Chelski won very close games.
At least Portsmouth won

The Reds were terrible. Crouch looks like the Euro matches had him a little tired. Oh, well, at least Arsenal only managed a draw - misery loves company in the lower half of the table.

Yep, OSU was definately the better team on Sat night.

Differences in the game:

OSU played a perfect game, while UT made too many mistakes. You can't do that against the #1 team and expect to win.

Costly turnovers. Pittman's fumble on the 1 yard line was a 14 pt swing. Instead of punching it in the endzone on the next play, they return the ball to the 50 yard line for great field position.

Senior Heisman candidate QB vs. unproven freshman QB.

Depleted UT Defense. OSU might have the best offense UT sees the rest of the year, and for UT to have won, they would have needed all hands on deck. They were without Kelson and Brown. At one point in the game I noticed that DBs Jackson, Foster, and Palmer were in the game at the same time. All freshmen.

Bottom line: Ohio State is as good as advertised, and their defense, while unproven, is still athletic and well coached. As for UT, we'll see what McCoy has in 3 weeks and if the secondary can come together. The UT run defense and run offense are as good as any in the country.

Does anyone know how to find a list of radio stations that broadcast Cowboy games? I'm in Houston, and the only station around here I know of that used to carry the games (Beaumont) has switched to the suckass Texans games. Please help a brother out here in this godforsaken sportsradio wasteland.

Thanks Kipster. This is flippin' sweet. For all you other Cowboys Ticketheads in Houston (is it just you, Jay?):

"Cowboys radio returns to Houston
(David Barron, Houston Chronicle)

KNFC (97.5 FM) has picked up the Dallas Cowboys radio network, signaling the Cowboys' return to local airwaves after a three-year absence. Pat Fant, who manages Cumulus Radio's Houston properties, said, "Just like there are Republicans and Democrats, there are Cowboys fans and Texans fans (in Houston), and we're here to take care of everybody."

So when the Browns and the Packers are tied for the worst record in the NFL are they going to have to play a tiebreaker to see which team gets relegated to the Arena League?
