So the Philadelphia Executioner takes down another one. Amazing. Bernard Hopkins, 104years old, beats Kelly Pavlick decisively. I saw the fight and it wasn't even close.
The Phillies are going to the World Series.
The Red Sox are down 3 games to 1 and losing 7-0 in the bottom of the seventh inning. They come back, improbably, to win. The venue shifts to Tropicana Field where the Rays have PWNED my beloved SAWKS all year. The Sox seem not to remember, because they won, again, last night 4-2 to force a deciding, winner-take-all Game 7.
Penn State continues to rise up the national rankings and is now Number 3. They faced Michigan yesterday, by whom they have been thumped for 9 (count 'em) straight games. Nine losses. Zero wins. At halftime, they were losing again. Somebody must have said SOMETHING (and probably quite loudly) to them at halftime, because the team that came out of the locker room played like their hair was on fire, scoring 32 unanswered points. Final score: Meatchicken: 17, PSU: 46. We are Penn State!
So, sports-wise, it's been an awfully good weekend in the Fish house, thus far. GO SAWKS!
