With football at all levels now officially over for the season, it's time to move back to baseball. I know I say this every year, but the span from February to April is my least-favorite time of year. It's too cold to really do anything outside and I don't really care about any of the sports that are going on. On the bright side, the Cubs are in ok shape going into next April. They'd be better with Jake Peavy and Brian Roberts but whatever. It's fun to fantasize that the Cubs somehow could acquire both and then be the best team in the National League by leaps and bounds.
The Cubs managed to get rid of every single player I hated over the past year so I guess I need to start looking for new people to hate.
Last night I caught up with Tim while he embarrassed me in a couple games of video football. I lost the first game trying to get cute and the second game I lost...well, in really every aspect of the game. It's tough to see that both your quarterbacks had passer ratings of 0.0 but fortunately they stopped one INT short of the record of 12. Ouch. Hopefully when NCAA 2010 comes up they'll have Ponder be able to run the option.
Speaking of FSU football, Preston Parker was kicked off the team today. I remember reading last year that he had two tattoos: one that said NFL and the other said JAIL because he knew he'd either be in one or the other. I guess that decision has been made.
