It's ironic that on Halloween my fantasy dreams have turned into a nightmare. Michael Vick single handedly ruined me in three different leagues. Not only did he forget to throw the ball to the most explosive receiver in football (Desean Jackson) he decided to fall in love with his tight end Brent Celek last night who ended up scoring a whopping 23 points. I think the two of them are dating now. It was also my first week playing without MVP Aaron Rodgers. I felt like Linus without his security blanket. 0-3 is not a flattering look for the self proclaimed expert on all things sports related, but anything can happen once I make the playoffs. Here are some observations over the weekend.
A Stanford vs. Boise St. national championship game is a real possibility. The three teams in front of them (Alabama, LSU, and Oklahoma St.) will certainly lose at least one game this season while the Cardinal and the Cowboys will likely run the table. Stay tuned.
Wisconsin fans have my sympathy. After another heart breaking last second loss I find it hard to believe the can pick themselves up off the canvas and get back to their dominant ways. What could have been.
Sometimes a no name is better than a hall of famer. 5 years from now no one will remember who David Freese is, but for now he's the king of St. Louis. He out shined pitching ace Chris Carpenter and Phat Albert Pujols to earn the World Series MVP. Disney has already contacted him for the movie rights.
As if I didn't have enough disdain for place kickers Olindo Mare goes out and misses a game tying 28 yard field goal for the Carolina Panthers yesterday. Cam Newton and Steve Smith probably had to be restrained from beating the snot piss out of that guy. Kickers suck!!!
