Detroit Sports and stuff

My ranting of sports, life, and whatever I feel like...but mostly sports. Now in the un-daily variety.

Not the greatest weekend...

Well, if I was rooting for a sports team this weekend, chances are they did badly. The Tigers, after winning the opening series against the Rangers, dropped the final 3 games of the series by 1 run, 2 runs, and 1 run. Worse yet, they couldn't score more than 1 run Friday and Saturday, then take a 6-run lead today, and still end up losing. Blah.

Arsenal could do no better than a draw against Aston Villa on Saturday, 1-1 at full time. Worse yet, they were down for a good portion of the second half, with Olof Mellburg's header puting the visitors in front. It took a wonderful service from 18-year old Theo Walcott, to Gilberto, who knocked home the equalizer 8 minutes from time.

Tigers have acquired 2B Neifi Perez to help fill in for the injured Placido Polanco, and provide some defense for the home stretch (since his bat will not help at all). I guess at this point (3-7 in the last 10 games) we can use all the help we can get.

And finally, if you want to go to a horror movie that makes you laugh, you should go see 'Snakes on a Plane!' It's not a good movie by any stretch of the imagination, but it was humerous at parts, and it wasn't a complete waste of 2hrs. More like an hour and change...

Peace...

Nothing like pulling off a huge trade to get the bats moving.

Still think Curtis Granderson is such a good leadoff hitter?? He's what 0 for his last 86??

Since there hasn't been a new post in a bit, I guess Mike's weekly "Tony Kornheiser is such a Dumb-ass" post will have to go here.
This week's comment that made me roll my eyes the most was re: Dallas QB Romo's gloves: "He's wearing gloves. I assume that's not because he's got a night golf game coming up. What's he wearing those for?" Please...
