Well, the next Mariners game is on Tuesday, and Ichiro has 193 hits thus far!  There are 13 games left for Seattle, with the next 9 being on the road (3 in Toronto, 3 in Tampa Bay, 3 in Texas)!  GO ICHIRO!!!

Day 1 of 3 in Toronto, and Ichiro went 4 for 4!  WHOO HOO!!!  HE ONLY NEEDS THREE MORE HITS TO GET TO 200!!!

What? No, (P.S. Im not sure if your talking about a baseball game right now or a football game) I hear know one talk about Baseball at my school anymore. It's always football.

I really think it should be football now. Back then Baseball was cool or something I guess but....

RAGGLE FRAGGLE.

It's probably because the Mariners are one of the worst teams in all of baseball right now, so much so that the baseball community isn't even paying attention to Ichiro.

The expression is supposed to be PASTtime, not PASStime.

So, I just got home from work.  I was planning on just looking at how Ichiro is doing (since I forgot to watch the game yesterday).  He only needs two more hits!!!  His next game is today, and I was hoping that it'd be soon enough to where I could watch it & not miss work; I can!  However, the game starts at 9:37.  It's in Toronto, so it'll 12:37 over there, but still!  I hope I'll get to see history, especially since I'll be missing some deserved sleep!

Pretty much the only sport I can watch and get into is soccer. Or football, depending on where you're from/where your loyalties lie. THE WORLD CUP WAS SO AMAZING YAY SPAIN [/late to the sports thread]

I never cared much for soccer.  The worst part of the game is the many rabid fans around the world who riot just because the opposing team scored a goal.  They ruin sports in general, almost to the point to where I start feeling bad for soccer fans.

Unfortunately, I think the Giants will win it all this year, too.  The only thing about that that I like is that they did it three years after "the great" Barry Bonds retired.

I'm also looking forward to the Houston Texans/Indianapolis Colts game on Monday Night Football tonight, too!  (GO TEXANS!!!)

I'm also looking forward to seeing what sort of sillyness Pee Wee Herman will be bringing to Monday Night RAW.

So.... was I the only one who had their mind blown by the Andre Johnson/Cortland Finnegan battle royale? I mean I know the two hate each other, but it's rare to see these no-helmet, Hockey style brawls in the NFL.

Oh and just as a side note..... TEAM JOHNSON.

Sorry, but if I'm going to give a whoopty-doo about college sports, my team would be WSU, just because they have a branch in Vancouver.  (And if the 4 Northwest mascots were to fight each other, the Cougar would easily win).

I don't care who wins, just so long as Oregon's final score is 20.  I've entered a contest where you can win various prizes if you guessed the correct Duck score.

As for the hopes: 2-1-1.  Predictions: 2-2.

So, next round!
Hopes
AFC
Jets @ Patriots - Patriots
Ravens @ Steelers - Easily Ravens
NFC
Packers @ Falcons - Packers
Seahawks @ Bears - Easily Seahawks

Predictions
AFC
Pats def. Jets
Ravens def. Steelers
NFC
Falcons def. Packers
Bears def. Seahawks

Hey. Going back to basketball, what does everyone thing of the Brandon Roy situation with the Blazers?

I'm on the fence. His abilities, while still a strong Blazers player, really wasn't all-star material for the past season. With him out, Aldridge gets the light and has stepped up, and Patty Mills is really a pretty darn good player now that he's been given a solid chance. My 70-year old coworker always told me he was, but I didn't believe her. Never doubt a 70-year old nurse named Gladys. She's so awesome and I marvel at her NBA knowledge.

Who? lol

I live in the Eugene area. It's all Ducks, all the time. Especially with the new arena. Women's BB just set a Pac-10 record for game attendance today. I only heard that, and not the actual number.

Basically this year was a bust from the get go. Might as well get BR out of there sooner rather than later. Maybe he'll be ready to go sometime mid-year next year, and be something like 100%. BUt then Greg Oden could be having an All-Star year next year too!

Aaron, you called them right. Pack-vs. Pitt. I think it's really cool to have those two original NFL teams to be contending for a title. Hasn't happened since they started the super bowl, and/or Pittsburgh went over to the AFC from the NFC.
Have Fun

This is going to be a GREAT game, provided that both teams will play to their full potential.  I'm expecting a lot of blitz plays with many miraculous throws & catches.  Also, you've got the team that's won more Super Bowl titles than anyone (Pittsburgh has 6: SB - IX, X, XIII, XIV, XL, and XLIII) going against the team that's won more NFL Championship titles than anyone (Green Bay has 12: NFL - 1929, 1930, 1931, 1936, 1939, 1944, 1961, 1962, and 1965; SB - I, II, and XXXI).  This will be absolutely EPIC!  (Except for the Half Time Show).

So do you know if or when the last time these two teams played for an NFL championship? I'm thinking it was back in the 40s. Dunno.

I'm hoping for a classic, to be talked about a long time. Except that by definition, I don't think it will be well remembered. But it will be a great game to watch!

Roy is working out tonight. So says my mom, who is watching the Blazer game.

Personally I'm putting my money on the Packers. Mainly because they share a lot with the Seattle Seahawks...(Including players and a a coach.)

I am, too, but not for that reason.  I'm doing this because they've overcome great challenges in the playoffs, and they did it strongly.  Pittsburgh made a great showing, too, but only because they're opponents weren't the best.  They beat Baltimore; fine.  The Ravens aren't Super Bowl quality yet (but they might be in a couple of years).  They beat the Jets, who were fortunate enough to defeat a division rival, making the WOW! of their victory less WOW!-like.

I think the Packers do a better job blitzing AND avoiding the blitz; this will be key, because the Steelers are still pretty amazing with defense.  I'd be surprised if either team gets past 23 points, (unless it's like the Raiders/Buccaneers match-up; that one made me smile).

My mom is from Wisconsin. Most of her family still lives there. It wasn't until I married my wife and suddenly had to be a Vikings fan. Not that I particularly wanted. I hated the Vikings in grade school. I liked their front 4 on defense, but...I liked the Steelers, Dolphins and Raiders back then. Now, I like good football games.

I need to think of who will wiin next year's Super Bowl. Co-worker is going down to Vegas for the NASCAR race there in March. He'll place bets for us. I won $48 by picking Pittsburgh a few years ago. Big Ben's first ring. Kind of hard to do when you haven't even had a draft yet, or a pre-season. I just had a feeling back then. I don't seem to have one now. Maybe pick the Ducks to win the Natty next year.
Have Fun

Early BS prediction for SB46: Bengals vs. Eagles.

Bungles? Srsly? No way dude. Maybe the Iggles. I think maybe next year we will have more .500 clubs than the NFC Worst division. Just because of parity. I think teams like Buffalo and Detroit will win some of the games they lost this past year. And maybe teams like Tennessee and Oakland will not be the drama queens they were this year either.

I'd like to see if Indianapolis drafts some defense. If so, um no. Not next year.

I think which ever team gets more of the O-line from Wisconsin should be a much better team offensively. It'll help the run game at least.

Could you imagine Detroit drafting Nick Fairley to side along Ngdamukong Suh? Ouch for da Bears. Except Cincinnati gets first pick, right? They need O-line to give Palmer more time in the pocket. UNless they pick Newton.
Have Fun

Honestly, I couldn't really pick an AFC rep; WAY too early.  I'm really torn between the Jets, Jags, Colts, Raiders, and Ravens, so I chose a team that I felt bad for.  (I know, illogical, but funny).  The Eagles is a serious prediction, though, but things can change...
