Anyone else forget to set their "House" DVR to go over by an hour, in case the Yankees-Angels game went long? (Could that really be the key takeaway of today's SN column?)
Anyway, it's not like the Yankees were going to go 11-0 en route to their supposedly inevitable World Series title, right? (I'm actually liking Scott Kazmir tonight -- although even in a best-case scenario, he only holds off the Yankees offense for 6-8 innings. Can't account for bullpen.)
Speaking of inevitable: The Phillies advancing to the World Series.
For the rest of us, if the series aren't going to be competitive, at least the games' endings will be -- can't beat the walk-off... unless you're talking about TWO walk-offs.
More you'll find in today's column:
*Do the Broncos win without those two Royal return TDs? Who cares? That was their best win yet.
*Pete Carroll needs to STFU about the BCS computers. When your one loss is to Washington, you lose your right to gripe. Compare that to Oregon or LSU or Miami -- not even close.
*The most interesting quote I have seen all month, from Malcolm Gladwell on PTI last night. I might even do a standalone post about it later. It's today's "Last Word" in the column.
There's a ton more -- Alabama treating Tennessee like Florida should treat Tennessee, why the Rockets will continue to surprise people with success, Dayton Mania.
Check it out here. More later. I have two bonus posts coming today -- one at 11-ish and one at 1:30/2-ish. Drop by!
