It's... Saturday... RIGHT???
Saturday evening sports thread/open thread
Yeah, that's getting edited. Oops.
No it's Firday
Little worried about getting the puck past Quick but hopefully the Hawks can do it. Gonna be another very good series
4 home runs including a grand slam in one inning. Sweetwater Great Americanale Ale growler with NY strip steak! Yum!
I'm not sure if Miguel is human.
If I had some nuts hanging on the wall, what would I have honeys??
Just waiting for the Winovich decision. It's 5:31 on my iPad. Come on Chase!
Chase Winovich is committing somewhere in the next 15 minutes or so. Either it's a Hello or he's a Pitt Panther - OSU reportedly out.
There isn't a whole lot going on here - just making some chicken marsala and orzo here while I read MGoBlog and watch the Tigers game. I had to chuckle when Prince Fielder popped out for the first out of that last half inning and cheers erupted here and there. Apparently, four home runs later, it's the little things that excite the fans.
As for drinks, we will enjoy a dry Chardonnay with dinner more than likely.
Rooting for the Kings I guess. I hate all the bandwagon and celebrity fans that popped up during the Cup run last year, but Hawks are rivals, can't stand Sid the Kid and hate every Boston sports team sans the Pats and that's only b/c of Tom Brady.
Drew Doughty is from my home town.
Richards and Carter were reclaimation projects
Too bad they traded Jack mf johnson
Can anyone give me an analysis of the softball game tonight?
Dallas Escobedo (ASU pitcher) isn't on Ricketts level, but she's at least equal to anyone else they've faced. M is 1-0 against ASU this year, Escobedo giving up 5H 5R 5ER 2BB and 10SO. The real concern is that Wagner might not be ready to go. ASU is a great hitting team, and these were the stat lines for the pitchers earlier this year:
Wagner- 4.2IP 10H 4R 4ER 1BB 3SO
Driesenga- 2.1IP 4H 0R 0ER 0BB 2SO
Wagner was pulled in the fourth and brought back in for the seventh. If Driesenga can hold them under five or so (the hits in that box score don't look promising) I think M has a good chance. That's not going to be easy to do, though.
I'm being told that Escobedo will rack up a lot of strikeouts but is susceptible to getting balls jacked out of the park. Hopefully Romero is licking her chops at that idea.
...from scratch garnished with local veggies, with a home-baked loaf of bread and local Amish butter. Now enjoying a dessert Rum n' Coke.
Watching the Tigers dominate the O's. Brewery Vivant's "Triomphe" IPA with rib eye and corn on the grill. Gotta love Saturday.
Where TF is that?
Go Penguins...Go Braves.
I think this Pens-Bruins series will be a good one (no sh*t Sherlock). I see LA up on the Blackhawks 1-0 at first intermission; rootin for the Hawks as a Pittsburgh-Chicago series may draw me to Chicago for a game or two. Never been to a NHL Stanley Cup game. I'd like to very much.
According to scout boards he committed. Awesome.
Chase winovich. Per Sam webb
Also, here's to Lebron's quest to annoy Ohioans for all eternity.
in TX v OK: a home run bunt. It happened once when my daughter was pitching. Unbelievable.
Wow. Can you explain how this happens?
it is an espn highlight. Overthrow at first, 11.5 seconds to round the bases, as the ball caroms around right field.
- Pitcher fields bunt, makes iffy throw
- 2B misses the catch
- RF comes in for backup, misses the ball off the wall
- Ball bounces fairly deep into right field
- Meanwhile, the girl who bunted was fast (<12s around the bases)
It's a bunch of errors.
With a Winovich chase.....r
Anyone try it? Picked up a 4 pack at Hillers today
Very tasty. I'm enjoying a Founders Doom which is basically a Double Trouble aged in bourbon barrels.
Feet off the ground, elbow to the head. If Bolland isn't gone for two games Shanahan can walk off of a cliff.
I'll be spending the evening trying to understand a lady friend who is quite possibly the most confusing person ever. So, yay, me.
Follow the advice above from Run 2 Daylight. Feet off the ground, elbow to the head. It hasn't failed me yet.
The second suggestion might better serve him in the long run in comparison to the first.
Good luck with that.
And don't be afraid to say "Sorry, I don't understand."
Should be a good one
But the plus side (other than seeing my daughters' supreme athleticism #biased), was that we were right up the road from Mother Earth Brewing. Had a Kisemet IPA, which they do bottle here in so cal, but very crisp, citrusy and hoppy; along with an amazingly yummy peanut butter stout. Sounds weird, but really amazing. Came home, passed out on the deck. Now need to recover for the M softball game.
Grant Hill is retiring - just saw it on ESPN. Obviously not much of a connection to UM (though his recent verbal battles with the Fab 5 were interesting), but still weird. I remember thinking he'd be an all-time great when the Pistons drafted him. 19 years is a great career in terms of longevity, but after he had those ankle problems he was never the all-around star he showed early on.
And a mighty fine player for them too, as well as a standup guy. Have nothing but respect for him.
Free Molsons and $1 Oberons today. I'm sore as SHIT right now from two hard days of sailing. Got a swollen knuckle on my left hand though I think that might be going down now, matching bruises on my shins and knees, and a huge mystery bruise on my arm that I have NO idea where that came from. (Which is not unusual.) And one more day of racing tomorrow.
The $1 Oberons are because Bell's is a huge sponsor of the club that's putting on the races I'm in this weekend and it's a great way to make sure the racers stay around for the after parties each day.
to see Crosby punch Chara. I was actually cheering out loud for Crosby in my living room...a first.
Don't worry...it's easy to get used to!!
I don't have a grudge against Crosby and think he's a great player, but as a Penguin and Canadian I've never had a reason to cheer for him. He was funny tonight trying to make Chara think he was going to start something, though. That's just physics, and I don't think it was lost on anyone at Consol Energy Center, either.
I was not, because one swing from Chara and Crosby's re-concussed. I don't like Crosby, and hate whiny frustrated Crosby (I missed you, Sid!) but didn't want to see that.
