The Weekend: Sports Edition

Well, the Boilers have done it again. I can't be mad at them though, they were playing Wisconsin, a team that far outranks us, and deservedly so. And honestly, as much as I'd like to see the Boilers provide the Badgers with an upset, I'm looking at the greater good of the Big 10 and I like to see the teams win that can be other conferences so we finally get a little respect on the National front. The teams this year are Wisconsin, Michigan and of course, Ohio State, teams that I don't root for when they play Purdue, but I like to see them win so we get a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T. (Just a little bit!)

Unfortunate News: The freakin' Irish won this weekend, which puts me at 0-2 for sports on Saturday.

But of course there is one team, that never lets me down. (I use the term 'never' quite loosely, as it does not include the play-offs!) Although it was a little hairy at the beginning, the Indianapolis Colts beat the Washington Redskins on Sunday, making my wearing of the Colts jersey all over DC on Sunday morning well worth the sneers and snide comments. My friend Lainie is a big Redskins fan and I was going to call her at Half-time to comment on the fact that the 'skins were ahead and I was getting scared. And now this morning I was lucky enough to get to send her a beligerent GO COLTS email that I'm sure made Monday even better. I'd like to attach a picture, but alas, Blogger knows not how to upload a picture with ease and simplicity. (or poise and rationality)

All I can say is I'm sure the Boilers will be pretty good next year- we're starting a lot of new guys and most of our problems are noob mistakes.
Plus, dig the Black jersey with Black pants!

I was thinking about you this weekend when I saw the Purdue score... it didn't look so good.
But we are Ohio State fans so we had a happy weekend. :)
