Random Thoughts...

Brewers - We are now 80-57, that's 23 games above .500. Two more wins and we guarantee ourselves another winning season and that could happen as early as September 4th...not 24th. If we go 10-15 in our last 25 games that's still 90 wins. Unbelievable. We have a 5 1/2 game lead in the Wild Card and are only 4 1/2 games behind the slumping Cubs with 6 more games head to head and a tougher schedule for the Cubs. Its also rough when the only thing you can bitch about for the past week or so regarding the Brewers was Chuckie New Town (I stand corrected on the waking a sleeping giant comment) getting too excited about getting out a based loaded jam, a shitty scoring decision robbing our ace of a no hitter, a "tight" groin, and a bad inning by the 8th inning guy on a day when the 3 teams you are most concerned with (Cubs, Cards, Phillies) all lost. Life is good in Brew town and its going to be a fun couple of months.

Packers - Finally the stupid pre-season is upon us. After the whole Brett Favre thing I was still behind Ted Thompson, but now I don't understand what the hell he's doing. He cuts our average punter, who happens to hold the kicks for our kicker, one week before the start of the season for another teams average punter who was just cut so now one week before the season our new punter needs to get familiar with our kicker. Oh, and we have a new long snapper too after he hurt his knee. How a guy whose only job is to long snap can hurt his knee is beyond me.

Bucks - Still don't care

Badgers - Finally have the BTN...thank god I found it. Watched a little of Indiana and some other shitty schools men's soccer game yesterday.

Marquette - I know we've had this discussion before about Mbwake leaving for personal reasons etc. Turns out he's rumored to have enrolled at Miami Dade County Junior College and might potentially be a Miami Hurricane next year. Hmmm, I thought he was from Minneapolis. Maybe his personal reason is he can't hack it at Marquette. Oh and can we see a god dam schedule yet?

Fantasy Football - For what its worth, doing your fantasy football draft from your wife's childhood bedroom via cell phone is not nearly as fun as getting together with 12 of your friends. But, if Derek Anderson, Randy Moss, and Larry Johnson and the rest of "I Hate Wranglers" play to their potential, I might make this an annual event ;-)

Politics - McCain stole all of Obama's thunder with his selection of the chick from Alaska as his VP choice, then 3 days later a Hurricane postpones the first day of the convention which allows the media to spend the entire day talking about her unmarried pregnant teenage daughter and her "trooper gate" scandal in Alaska that could be resolved 3 days before the election. Whether your are a D or R... this is going to be an interesting election to say the least.

College Football - Finally started this past weekend. Didn't watch too much, but saw the second half of the UCLA/Tennessee game. Wow that was a great college football game. That QB had 4 INT's in the first half, unbelievable. Too bad it always seems to come down to a missed FG.

NO POLITICS. Talking politics only leads to hurt feelings and ruined friendships.

Team Curtin was present in full force, yes. They (it?) were also refusing to do shots, even when it was fully merited -- like when they picked the Dallas defense in the seventh round (or thereabouts). What the fuck was that all about?

that's fucking hillarious. sounds very similar to last year. and at one point i was looking to take Duece McAllister (before he was taken in front of me) and I was giong to have Phil annouce that i was taking Duece Staley like I believe the former Team Curtin did at the Coach House draft. One of the funniest moments in my fantasy football history...aside from Philly picking Brett Favre #1.
