Michigan loses to Michigan State . . . duh.
Cincinnati Reds swept out of playoffs.
Fantasy football team drops to 0-5.
Let's beat Iowa. Please.
Michigan loses to Michigan State . . . duh.
Minnesota Twins swept out of playoffs.
BUT Fantasy football team rises to 5-0 (unless Braylon goes for 32 points tomorrow).
Teams from Ohio should get swept in everything.
1-4. I'll have averaged about 100 points a week good for middle of the pack. My opponents averaging 115 points! Good for #1 points against and they are averaging As much (or more after this week) than the top guy in the league.
I'm just so pissed off. I feel like how michigan must feel because every team brings their A game against my team.
Im averaging about 80 am 0-4 and need Harvin to get 10+ to win.
49ers are 0-5 with 3 close games and 2 blow out losses.
Teams from Minnesota should get swept in everything.
Michigan lost, Braves lost, Jaguars won but still suck, I lost my sunglasses at a tailgate, I even watched the show LOST and was actually lost through the whole thing, and if "finding a job in Washington DC" were a sport, I would be losing at that too. FML.
but they lose in horrific fashion. "Closer of future" walks guy, LOOGY out of pen fails to end game with two outs, then Brooks Conrad is Brooks Conrad.
It's amazing the change from two days ago: it was Friday, Dee Hart committed, the most unlikely Braves hitters led the most unlikely comeback, my TV remote was in one single piece at the time, I had a full bottle of whiskey. Seems so long ago...
After the Braves game I pretty much ranted for about half an hour to my brother and dad about the game. I considered maybe if Obi played 2nd for the Braves and Conrad was our MLB, maybe our games would have gone better.
he must be on suicide watch. he might be better off playing w/o a glove like we do up here in chicago.
The Lions won!
I'm 1-2 this weekend, but all four of those Bears wins feel dirty to me.
Was pretty solid I thought. Not the best game by Dallas but we stifled them really well and the offense, once the line issues got sorted out, was impressive.
100% agree with you on the other 3. Plus the giants loss was the worst offensive performance since the dark days John shoop and Shane McMahon *shudders*
No, you're right, the Dallas win was great, but I hardly was able to see any of it, so it doesn't feel real to me.
Something about going into the season hating Lovie and wanting one of those finishes that guaranteed he'd be gone...this all just confuses me.
Wings are 2-0!
Sucks that we lost and the Yankees swept.
does not suck. Well, she might. Nevermind. It's getting late.
i agree with this powerful post... the last 8 days have been terrible for me...
Beat Chicago on the night they raised the Cup banner..
Put that in your pipe and smoke it Blackhawks!
The eight billion hockey games to come mean that one game has no such effect on me. Hockey losses just can't get me to be anywhere the same way as college football losses.
Also, your avatar is um, off, for this type of post.
Its more about the significance of the win on that day rather than just a regular season win... It even more important for someone who was born and raised a Detroit fan, and Michigan alum who lives in a city full of Detroit haters and ND fans..
Also, the avatar is um, perfect, for someone who loves a great city like Chicago and bleeds blue.
Selective memory. Thanks to Dee Hart, at least we beat someone this weekend.
You forgot, OSU is 1. With their luck, they'll draw Boise and take the to the shed.
Also, my softball team had its first loss of the season today. It just doesn't get any better.
the glaring blind spot from Michigan losing.... I went 3-0 in my fantasy leagues, The wings are 2-0 and look very good ( datsyuk fighting... enough said) oh and um... LIONS 44-6 not from hell but i do feel some of your pain good sir.
cc lost to rice. :'(
Bosnia tied Albania in Euro 2012 qualifying (seriously Albania is a top of the group), Bengals lost to Tampa Bay because of a last second interception by Palmer, Michigan lost, Ohio State is #1 in both polls, Yankees and Phillies swept their series, I could go on and on and on haha but /rant
I'm a grad student. What do you mean by this 'weekend' concept? Is that when the number of normal people and undergrad drop outside of my lab for two days?
Michigan loses (meaning, Michigan State wins).
Ohio State wins (and takes over #1 in the AP poll).
Notre Dame wins.
Reds lose and are eliminated.
Bengals snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
A horrible sports weekend...one of the worst I can recall in a while.
you seem like my kind of guy Pink Floyd = GOAT
Anyway, I recorded the Bengals game and watched it late last night. I'm not one to second guess NFL coaching, while I coached on the high school level for years I do not know half as much an NFL coach, but with that said how do you throw on 3rd and 13 in that situation? If we run and punt I just do not see Tampa driving the field for the tieing score. This is the reason that people hate Bratkowski. I did however call the reds sweep before the series so I'm not too surprised by that but it still sux.
ugh, but my goodness, the Lions put up their biggest win in 15 years. Having suffered through the Barry Sanders Hangover Lions and the BOOM! MILLEN'D Lions, I really enjoyed this win. It was remarkably cathartic.
And quite frankly, baseball needs to be done. It's football season.
Definetly not the team I would have expected to put up 44 points this weekend...
Michigan lost. Eastern Michigan lost (not that I'm surprised). But Navy won. The Wings won twice. So it's a wash.
Green Bay lost (that game wass complete bull shit in the end)
Notre Dame won
Ohio State won
The only good thing was the Wings winning both games this week.
Michigan loses to Little Brother
The Reds get swept out of the playoffs
The Bengals lose to TB
Lost bad in both Fantasy Fooball leagues
The Suckeyes stomp Indiana and claim the #1 spot in all the polls
I live in Ohio
Try to avoid clever nicknames for other teams (e.g. "Suckeyes"), because they're not clever and tend to get you in a bit of trouble with the natives.
But your weekend was very rough, so I'll +1 you out of sympathy.
The Red Wings kicked the shit out of the ducks (i hate the ducks), and spoiled chicago's banner night which was outstanding
Michigan Hockey took care of business sweeping bowling green
The Lions won a locally televised game for the first time since 2007, and beat the living hell out of the rams while doing it...
Michigan Football was the only thing that fucked up my perfect sports weekend...
Wings win 2!
Lions KILLED the Rams (Bet on them!)
Fantasy team somehow won even though my starting rb's were Mike Tolbert and Steve Slaton! Geez I should have picked up Mike Hart when I had the chance.
Only one bad thing this weekend
The only reason this wasn't an abysmal sports weekend was
1) Redskins won
2) Alabama Lost
About time someone end their 19 game winning streak.
Red Wings look good!!!
Fantasy team (Hugh Jeffencoch if you care to know the name) 5-0!!!!!
Weekend could have been worse and I honestly really didn't expect M to beat a very balanced (and talented) MSU team.
And is #1....
We ARE in first place in the CCHA....
UM gets embarrassed by Sparty
Penguins lose to archrival Philly and the team that eliminated us last year, Montreal
And it's playoff baseball time, which reminds me that the last time my Pirates were in the playoffs (or had a winning season), I was in diapers.
If you're a hardcore Pirates fan, 95% of weekends are miserable.
