60% Of The Time, It Works Everytime


"That doesn't make sense"

"So, let me get this straight, if the party starts at 8....why are we going to the bar at 10?"

It's not even the end of September yet, and already the world is turned upside down. I don't even know where to begin. Let's see, how about the leading Heisman Trophy candidate is a quarterback......from Missouri. The team leading the Big 12 in rushing is Oklahoma State at 334 yards per game. Steve Spurrier is the 4th best the SEC East. Michigan has the 4th best the state of Michigan. Auburn wins a football scoring 3 points (nice 5* Phil are officially dead to me). The best game of the season west of Colorado could be Utah vs. BYU. The top two teams in the Big East are South Florida and UConn. The most exciting freshman player in the Big 12 is from Baylor. With one more win Notre Dame will match its total.....from all of last season. And to top it all off, the DoubleExtraLock of the Week is an astounding 3-0 for the year. Maybe the Mayans were right and we do only have until 2012 before it all ends. Think about when you ever thought you would see the day when a hummer (leisure activity) would cost more than a Hummer (motor vehicle), you'd feel sorry for people who own their house vs. rent, a plane ticket would cost less than the fee to bring 2 bags along, and Budweiser AND Miller are no longer American companies? Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a little there, but not by much.

Yes, I know it's early and we have a lot of football games left to play, but when it's all said and done there's always a few major surprises for the year. Boise St. in '06, Kansas and Mizzou last year, and this year? How about Bo Pelini leading the Huskers to a 10-2 season? I mean, crazier things have already happened, right? If you need more evidence, look at the major league standings. In mid-September, the team with the best record in the National League is.........the Chicago Cubs. Is it time to start thinking about who throws out the first pitch in the World Series? Speaking of Miller Time..........
