Every Day Should Be Saturday: ND v. USC, OU v. Tex, Neb. v. TT, UofM v.PSU, WY v. AF

Posted by sburk44 on October 17, 2009

EDSBS is one of Wachal’s Favorite Blogs. If you like anything about Deadspin and you like college football – this is the best site on the intertubes. I just stole their name for this quick post. Consider this an “open-thread” in the comments for college football discuss today if you are around.

Ok – So we have an idea of who will be watching what games today (Wachal loves him some red, gargs loves him some irish, I am slowly warming to the gophers)…but what else are you all excited for today (this weekend). I’m trying to catch up with classes and write a paper about Human Rights (who needs those?) but will be following along on the greatest invention this side of a Vin Scully radio broadcast*…the gamecast. So, the more important quesiton is…how will you all be wasting your time today? Here are some options (with my predictions). Post your own thoughts, etc:

ND v. USC: (USC by a last sec. field goal)

Bradford v. McCoy (Tex by 10)

Neb. v. TT (Neb lets wachal down somehow – lose by 3)

UofM v. PSU (Tim Brewsters first game against JoeP – Gophers get killed – cant stop the run – the only college team I know anything about – take PSU even though they are giving 17.5)

Yanks v. Angels (Why do Mike Socia teams fall apart this time of year – lots of lazy errors for them yesterday)

Air_Force_Academy_Falcon_Stadium_by_David_ShankboneAvs at Red Wings (Not super important this early in the season…but an Avs win might just do enough to increase attention back in Denver an boost the poor attendance figures they have had as of late – anyone else find free hockey radio broadcasts. The NHL website had them last year – but they seem to have discontinued them and now make you just pay to get the TV feeds)

AND…Almost forgot about Wyoming v. Air Force. I went to this game as a kid once in Colorado Springs and remember the cadets doing push-ups after points and the way the stadium had AF logo in the seats. Its no border war – but it should be a fun game – you know – for the 8 people who care.

*I listend to the Phils v.  Dodgers game on MLB radio with the Vin Scully feed yesterday while working at school. When the Rockies play the Dodgers – I always listen to the LA feed for the first 3 innings because they have Vin Scully’s TV call simulcast as the radio broadcast (then Charley Stiner comes in and he’s great as well – The LA Dodgers – hands down best radio calls in baseball). Anyway, Scully was FANTASTIC yeasterday – which he always is. He makes you feel like it is still the 1950’s or 60’s, espeically with their background music. When he goes off on tangents they are hilarious (yesterday he was talking about the Phils Carlos Ruiz and that got him thinking about another Ruiz (Manny I think) who used to play for the dodgers and he was telling funny stories about this other Ruiz guy and then he finished it with this great realization: “Manny Ruiz…what a great soul…of course he has nothing to do with Carlos Ruiz who is up now for the Phillies.” Fucking priceless…and only this guy can get away with it. Print out his call of the Sandy Kolfax transcript from the link above and read it on the pot. I dare you not to get goosbumps and smile – that is if you have a soul.
