Detroit Sports and stuff

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

What a great weekend!!!!

Boy, things don't get much better than last weekend...

Michigan led off the weekend with a come-from-behind 27-17 victory over Illinois in Champagne. Playing without leading rusher Mike Hart, and with QB Chad Henne in and out of the game with various injuries, the defense stepped up and lead the way for the Maize and Blue, and contained the explosive Illini offense. In what some were calling 'the only road block left between us and Ohio St.', we held up our end of the bargain, to stay undefeated in the conference. Next week is against Minnesota, a game that we may rest our big guns so they are healthy for MSU in 2 weeks. Here's hoping for another convincing win.

On Sunday Morning (EST time), Arsenal continued their incredible run of wins with a hard fought 2-0 win over Bolton Wanderers. Bolton of course would rather kick the player than the ball, but nonetheless, Kolo Toure found the back of the net, and Tomas Rosicky followed suit shortly after, securing all 3 points for the Gunners. And as good as they looked Sunday, they looked spectacular earlier this evening, taking care of Slavia Prague in the Champions League, 7-0 Cesc Fabregas and Theo Walcott had 2 goals apiece, Alexsander Hleb would've followed suit, except one of his goals was changed to an own goal, and Nicklas Bendtner topped it off, after being subbed in minutes earlier. An impressive win, which almost surely sees us through to the knockout phase of the competition. Well see what this team is made of, with a trip to Liverpool coming up this weekend, and hosting Manchester United next weekend. But so far, so good!

And finally the Lions... almost singlehandedly ruining most weekends for a decade now, they are slowly coming back to respectibility. And while I am thrilled about this 23-16 win against the Bucs on Sunday, and we did win the 4th quarter, and had some success running the ball, it was a game that felt like we were going to lose it the entire way. If it wasn't for the defense coming up with two HUUUUUGGGGEEE turnovers (and it should've been 3 - FALL ON THE BALL, CORY REDDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), this would've been a loss. But we did get the turnovers, and we did win the game, so you take what you can get. Hopefully, we can win a 2nd road game (I know, I'm getting a bit ahead of myself) with a victory in Chicago this weekend. Here's hoping!

Well, that's it for now. Sorry about my erratic posting.
