This is the best time of the year. The weather is cinematic, and the sports are legendary. Here's a few observations from this weekend:
1. The New York Yankees have made it home. Detroit is a long way when you're hitchhiking.
2. Here's a safety tip if you're standing on a dugout with a bottle of champagne, getting ready to spray people. Do not take the wire off without covering the cork with a towel or at least your hand. That cork can shoot out of there at any moment with enough velocity to take someone's eye out. I hate to be a downer but safety always comes first.
3. Terrell Owens was wide open all game and Dallas didn't get him the ball. No wait. Make that, "His mouth was wide open all game." After that performance, I bet Donovan McNabb said, "Skip the chunky soup. We're going out to eat."
4. The Oregon Ducks played a terrible game. The only guy who enjoyed it was the booth official from the Oklahoma game. He was watching at home, and he had the Ducks ahead by 21.
