Detroit Sports and stuff

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

A 3-0 weekend, plus a great tuesday

First of all, I'd like to say 'CEDAR POINT, WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!' It was another great weekend down at 'america's rockin' roller coast'. Myself, Ilea, and 6 others went to 'the point', and had a great time. The new coaster, 'maverick', was sweet, and all the other rides were great as usual. The only bummer was that 'max air' was down all weekend. I love that ride, so that was a bummer. But everyone seemed to have a pretty good time. I cannot wait to go back again!

Anywho, onto the great weekend of sports. Michigan won its 3rd in a row with a 28-16 win over Northwestern in Evanston, Ill. Since NU was up 16-7 at the half, at home, this seemed to be a pretty good win. We'll see if we can continue this streak against Eastern Michigan (hint: we will.)

Arsenal continue their amazing run of play right now with a hard fought 1-0 win over the weekend at West Ham. Robin vanPersie tallied the winner, and did so again tonight, where we won a Champions League game at Steaua Bucharest, also 1-0. That is nine consecutive wins for the Gunners, who find themselves in 1st place both in the Premier League, and in Group E of the champions league. There's still a long way to go in the season, but we are in terrific form at the moment.

And the Lions....who the hell are these guys?? They improve to 3-1 with a 37-27 win over Chicago at home, scoring an NFL record 34 points in the 4th quarter. 34 points!! Now, granted, Chicago was a little banged up, but not much, and to drop a 34 spot on them in any quarter, or in any game, for that matter, shows how much this team has improved. Now, it was still a sloppy game, and we have a loooooooong way to go to contend for anything, but we are off to one hell of a start. And it appears that head coach Rod Marinelli has his players' attention, because no one is quitting, and the hard work they put in is paying off. This week will be a great test, however, because we travel to the nation's capital, where we have not ever won a game. Good time to end that streak, eh? Here's hoping!

Anyway, U-M v EMU, Arsenal v Sunderland, Det @ Washington. Should be another great weekend of sports. Wings start their season off against the defending Stanley Cup champs Anaheim at home Wed. Night, so that should be fun too!

That's all for now, Wings recap, you tube clip of the month coming to you on Thursday!
