Sports Round-Up

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.

He wasn't the only one that enjoyed the Duck game......this Beaver enjoyed it immensely. Ducks have been exposed....who have they beat this year? Stanford (horrible), Fresno State (as horrible as Stanford), Oklahoma (mediocre lower-top 20 team...but needed their 12th man in the booth to do it), and ASU (really bad...a notch or two above Stanford). They finally meet a good team and got walloped.

Yes Bill, as you can clearly see, I hate the Ducks more than Democrats....

You forgot about holding the Champagne bottle at a 45 degree angle when you pop the cork. Let's the gas out wihout spilling and wasting the wine.

I feel sorry for Champagne...such a fine wine to be smashed against ship hulls, and poured over peoples heads.

Wouldn't it be cooler if the team stood around with their Champage flutes, giving a proper toast?

By the way, I'm a Yankees fan going back to my childhood when I used to watch Mantle and Maris play in person. Boy do those Yankees SUCK now...
