Clemson Weekend

Easy winner on Clemson last night. Woot woot.

Hey Seattle finally won a game. Halfway through their 10 game trip and the numbers are now.

ML 4-1 +$235
RL 2-3 $5

Today is a scary day. ML is -260 and the RL is a horrible -140. I hate going to the window on days with these numbers but I have to follow through on the trend.

Looking ahead to the NFL and I see nothing I like yet. I'm leaning towards taking the Saints plus the points on Thursday night but right now that's it. There is nothing wrong with taking a pass and finding a better spot in Week 2.

The Canes got off to a good start thumping Marshall 31-3. It's going to be tough going in Oklahoma this week and hopefully we can stay in the game. For all you haters out there, do yourself a favor and read this article about the new Miami coach Randy Shannon. It's an amazing story and it leads me to believe the future looks bright for the Canes. Back-to-back National Champions in 09 and 10?

The Big 10 has, does, and always will suck balls. Nothing better than seeing Michigan choke that game away. It will be interesting to see what happens to them the rest of the year now that they can kiss the National Championship good-bye. Now if someone can please upset the Luckeyes so we don't have to hear about their overrated asses all year.

Watch out for the Pac 10 this year. There are some really good teams in that conference that nobody hears about because of the biased (location not liberal) media.

Speaking of media, if you like to cap games best thing you can do is limit how much ESPN etc. that you watch and always remember that the on air talent are not professional gamblers and that their opinions are more about controversy and ratings than picking winners.

Why is it that the NFL can fit a 60 minute game into three hours yet it takes a college game four hours? Man those games are way too fucking long. Greedy fucking NCAA perhaps? Who needs a play-off by the way lets just vote. Ghey.

Did anyone watch the Cal-Tennessee game? Apparently Cal needs to expand its facilities to house more of their teams, both men's and women's not just football, and to do so they have to tear down some 100 year old trees as its the only place that makes sense to do it. But Cal being Cal, there are a handful of dirty barefoot hippies who decided to move into the trees to prevent them from being cut down.
Brent Musburger is telling us the story and you can hear that he's not a fan of liberal tree hugging hippies, so he's adamant that the University has agreed to plant one mature tree and two saplings for every tree they take down and he comes up with the line of the week practically screaming, "Three for one is a good deal, even if you are a tree hugger." I nearly pissed my pants, not just cause I agree but he was actually ticked off.

Also in the game the sideline reported wanders up a hill where a bunch of freaks are watching the game and she gives us a little background about the area and how people have been watching games there for years. Brent asks if there are any festivities going on and the chick says, "They are partying Cal-Berkeley style up here and now that you bring up I better get out of here before I get arrested." Another great line.

Football is back and I feel alive again. It's much better to watch the games than it is to fold cards all day long. Poker is so fucking boring!

Michigan is such a joke. It makes me wish I were an MSU or OSU alum or something just so I could *really* be laughing at those jackasses for losing to a (albeit very good) Division 1-AA team.

How about the Niners this weekend -3 at home against the hapless Cardinals? If even half the hype about the 49ers is true this year, they should easily beat the shitcardinals.

Thank you for the context on the Musburger quote. I read it on Awful Announcing, and couldn't figure out what the hell it was even in reference too.

Ummm. Playing live poker while watching football on a big screen tv at the club I found in Albany .. Priceless.

Watching my buffs win Saturday priceless.

But you are right.. Football is more exciting then Poker

About the only game I liked was the Niners giving the FG.

Big 10, er 11, football is great. Hard, smashmouth football. A place where the farmboys go from manning the offensive line on Saturday to manning the crops on Sunday.
