Here it is.
Week 8, NFL time. Mid-season. College ball has five or six more weeks. This morning I watched two hours of Chris Berman, an hour of FOX football experts and an hour of NASCAR hype-ers.
I’m no more happy that the Cowboys are five and one, today, than I was Thursday. Nor any less happy that Johnson and Earnhardt are on the verge of elimination in NASCAR.
(Come to think of it I wish we had some of the older drivers in NASCAR)
Most of the “old” teams in Pro Football are not on the top any more, which brings up the idea of defining ‘Old’. If one gets picky and says old is the original teams, the other must ask how far back are you going to define ‘old’. Heh. Fun argument. You’ll slide off into ‘“ERA’’ and the discussion gets messy and irrelevant. Especially if one is younger than the combative adversary one is debating.
It is quite proper, I believe, for the sportscaster’s to avoid the ‘old’ while discussing the current teams, NASCAR and Football. What is, is.
While not wishing the Giants (Baseball) any ill will, or the Royals any good , as in extraordinary, luck, I’d rather the trophy come to the mid-west. The coast has life a bit too easy.
And while I don’t expect any better, I wish the ‘Skins a win. That column is a bit skippy this year. Get rid of RG3 (which is about the number of games he’s played this year).
As far as NASCAR – well, just say Earnhardt might have a decent showing and he needs a win to advance. So does Jimmy Johnson, whom I’d rather see win than not, but he needs the win to advance also.
Don’t ask me about Jeff Gordon or Kevin Harvick. Don’t.
From the reaches,
