The end of one season, the beginning of another

By Jim Dallas

Congratulations to the Tar Heels.

And now that basketball Madness is over, I can sit back and try to enjoy baseball:

The first official day of work for the 2005 Astros will unfold before a sold-out crowd that could rival the 43,351 who attended last year's season opener.

Activities begin with an 11 a.m. street festival, pep rally and blood drive outside the ballpark. Gates open at 3 p.m, and pregame ceremonies begin at 5:15 p.m.

From there ... well, we'll see. The only certainty is that it will require more faith, on opening day, to be an Astros fan than was required in 2004, when Houston took the field with prodigal pitchers Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte and an unprecedented burst of confidence from the assembled faithful.

This year, with four new starters in the opening-day lineup and outfielder Lance Berkman on the disabled list, the Astros are popular whipping boys for baseball's chattering classes, who on paper see doom and gloom for 2005.

"I don't know that if I might not have agreed with (critics) before I watched these guys play every day in spring training," said Astros manager Phil Garner. "I think if (critics) saw them play every day, they might have a different opinion.

Time to stop talking and start playing, I guess.

An even lighter note

By Nathan Nance

Being a sports journalist, I have to bring up something silly like sports in the midst discussions on abortion and euthenasia. But it really shouldn't surprise anyone.

My hometown team, the Baylor Lady Bears are playing in Seattle Saturday and were seeded second in the Temepe Regional of the NCAA Tournament. While other newspapers would be content to just send a writer and have him file a story or two every night, the Waco Tribune-Herald is not. Whether it is because I am a blogger and on the staff or someone came up with it on their own, I'll never know (I was away blogging the SxSWi in Austin) but the Trib has started a blog.

It's totally sports oriented and Baylor-centric, but I think it it is worth checking out. We have two great writers there, assistant sports editor Jerry Hill and staff writer John Werner, and if anyone can make it work, it's those two. So visit it over the course of the Tournament and give constructive criticisms.

I will be blogging tomorrow's game as well, but from the comfort of one of my favorite bars in Waco, watching it on a big screen with total WiFi access. Then I'm headed down to Austin to hang out with newfound blogger friends to drink the night away and discuss Democratic politics.

Who's No. 1. We're No. 1!

By Nathan Nance

The Baylor Lady Bears win sole posession of the Big 12 Conference Championship with a 79-69 win over Texas Tech tonight.

Who's No.1?

By Nathan Nance

Politics is all fine and dandy, but we know what's really important: College Women's Basketball.

Tonight, my hometown Lady Bears play Texas Tech for a chance to win the Big 12 Championship outright. The game is being broadcast on FoxSW at 7:30 p.m., and it should be a good one. If Tech wins, then Baylor must share the No.1 spot with Tech and UT.

Now, I'm a big fan of Texas sports. Lord knows I've done my share of cursing out the TV when a bad call was made on the Longhorn football team.

But I can't help but root for my hometown girls to win. It would be such a big boost to the program, especially after last year's stunning loss to Tennessee.

So, I'll be watching to see how badly the Lady Red Raiders get beaten.

Football metaphors!

By Jim Dallas

Ezra at Pandagon reminds us how to react to the blitz:

Democrats need to learn that this isn't a scored debate, the public isn't an attentive judge marking points and evaluating arguments. This game is about volume, about coverage, and about disruption. You want your message out and your opponent's intercepted. The way to do that is not, is never, to engage their charge and answer its particulars. If their push hurts you, the answer is to punch back with something that hurts them worse and titillates reporters more. Because so long as they set the terms of the debate, we'll never win. So long as we keep ADD'ing away from our arguments and chasing their every talking point, we'll never win. Until we begin ignoring their attacks and focusing on our own, nothing we throw will ever stick. And when they blitz us, the answer is always to rush forward at them, not step back and weigh the merits of their offense.

Here are some other reminders (feel free to add others) --

For centrist Democrats! There's only so many time you can option right before you get sacked with a big loss.

For grassroots Democrats! Ground yardage is often the hardest to pick up; it is earned, not given.

For Democrats generally! Always be watching for the fake punt and the misdirection.

For advertisers! You can't get yards through-the-air if nobody's open.

For the risk averse! The team that wins is the team that succeeds in moving the ball.

New job

Guest post by Nate Nance

I just noticed on CNN/SI that Major Applewhite has been named the quarterbacks' coach at Syracuse today.

Applewhite is like my personal hero. I had a hard time believing that the NFL didn't want such an excellent quarterback and didn't take him the draft. I was also always upset that Chris Simms got more snaps than Applewhite did his senior year.

Anyway, I just thought I would update you all on the progress of the best quarterback ever at the University of texas.

Rooting for the home team

By Nathan Nance

Guest post by Nate Nance

Most people who know me, know that I'm a big Texas fan. I practically bleed burnt orange.

But I have to give props to my hometown girls, the Baylor Lady Bears, who are now ranked No. 2 in the AP poll. That, of course, is coming off a win against Texas and LSU's bad week last week. But if anyone deserves to be ranked 2nd, it is Baylor.

The Texas Lady Longhorns are ranked 12th, just ahead of Texas Tech. On the men's side, UT is ranked 10th in the AP poll and 9th in the coaches' poll.

Rose Bowl Pictures

By Byron LaMasters

I finally sent myself the cell phone camera pictures that I took at the Rose Bowl. They're tiny, but a few of them turned out.

Here's a few taken at the end of the game after the Longhorn's winning field goal:

Here's pictures of two fourth quarter Longhorn drives:

A third quarter Michigan drive:

And the pregame flyovers:

For some better Rose Bowl pictures, here's some places to check out:

Boi From Troy
Mack Brown Texas Football
Austin American Statesman
Lynxus Domain
Burnt Orange Fan Zone

That's about all that I can find except for Laura Bush and the President showing their support. Laura got her master's degree at UT, but George? He's no Texas fan. That's a bunch of bull. George's a Yalie, not a Longhorn. We rejected him, but not his daughter. Hehe.

By Nathan Nance

Guest post by Nate Nance

I was going to cheer against arch-rival OU, but then I thought "I hate the Trojans and I love the Big 12." Silly me because Oklahoma was spanked 55-19 in the national championship game.

The most interesting BCS game was without a doubt UT-Michigan. I really want my money back on all the others, it just wasn't worth it.

Rose Bowl Thoughts

By Byron LaMasters

Sorry for the delay in posting on the Rose Bowl, as I've been busy in LA. Going to the Rose Bowl was a phenomenal experience, and the game certainly did not disappoint. Unfortunately, I left my camera in Austin, and my friend forgot to bring his, so I had to resort to trying a few low-quality camera phone pictures. I'll post those later if any of them turn out. Boi From Troy has some good pictures of the scoreboard, the pregame festivities and flyover.

Both Boi From Troy in his post, and the Michigan fans behind us at the game mentioned the "sea of Burnt Orange" at the game. Perhaps some may have thought that Texas fans would be a bit less inclined than Michigan fans to travel out to the Rose Bowl, as this was the first time where Texans participated in the Rose Bowl tradition, previously reserved for Big 10 and Pac 10 teams. But considering that football is like a religion in Texas, I would have been surprised if their had not been a "sea of Burnt Orange" at the Rose Bowl. Overall, Longhorn fans were probably in the slight majority, but both teams were well represented.

As for the game itself, Texas fans can thank Vince Young. Young carried the team on a day where Cedric Benson and the entire defense had a subpar performance - and don't even get me started with the kickoff coverage team. Watching Vince Young run is absolutely dazzling. I had not yet had the opportunity to watch Young in person (only on TV), and he's just a thrill to watch.

The Longhorn defense finally started holding the Michigan offence led by Braylon Edwards and Chad Henne to field goals, and due to poor timeout calling / clock management on Michigan's part, we had the opportunity to kick a winning field goal as time expired. I was sitting in row 13 of the end zone where typically reliable UT kicker Dusty Mangum kicked a wobbly kick that I doubted would make it from the second it left his foot. Somehow, it made it through the uprights, the officials in the endzone raised their hands, and we all went nuts. The Eyes of Texas are upon California (and Michigan).

As for the BCS... well, it sort of worked out this year, except for the fact that Auburn won't have a shot at the national title. Texas proved that it deserved to be in the Rose Bowl, and Cal proved nothing in its loss to Texas Tech. The BCS still needs to be changed in favor of a real playoff system, but for now, I'll just savor a great Longhorn victory and the opportunity to see a damn fine football game.

Cotton Bowl Round-Up

By Jim Dallas

I had a wonderful opportunity to go to the Cotton Bowl in Dallas this morning, between the Aggies and the Tennesee Volunteers.

First time (and probably last) I'll get stuck in the Aggie cheering section and accidentally get caught up in the Aggie War Hymn.

Oh, to think of what would have been had I gone to Aggieland instead of Texas (and, for "mild loud," which is how the crowd was described by my Aggie relatives, the Aggie fans are LOUD.)

Anyway, the old man is a Tennessee alumni and Vol fanatic, so that quickly put the maroon visions to rest.

From Tennessee's second possession onwards, it was pretty much a smack-down, with five Aggie turn-overs (compare that to 8 in the entire regular season) and a lot of missed opportunities. Tennessee (particularly Rick Clausen) played a better-than-average game, and A&M's mistakes coupled with Vol momentum combined to seal the Aggies' fate. By the early fourth quarter Big Orange was up 38 - 0, with the only real question whether the game would end as a shutout (it didn't; the Aggies finally scored a touchdown with about 5 and a half minutes left in the fourth quarter).

Nevertheless, there were a few moments where Reggie McNeal looked pretty formidable, and I wouldn't be surprised if the Ags learned the lessons from this season and shock us all when the fall rolls around. There is a lot of talent on that team, as a whole.

Also, Oklahoma State's coach, Les Miles, is departing for LSU.

I'll let Byron do the wrap on the Rose Bowl, since he's there. But here's the cliff-note version: Texas won on a last-second field goal, 38-37, in a very competitive game. Vince Young rocks. Michigan's freshman QB, Henne, rocks. Cedric Benson almost got hurt in the first quarter, but managed to play well (although the stats would say otherwise).

Rose Bowl Bound

By Byron LaMasters

Happy New Year from California. I just got to my friend's place in West Hollywood, and we have Rose Bowl tickets. Even better, is that my whole Rose Bowl trip so far has just cost $110.50 (although since my father gave me $100 before I left, this has technically cost me a grand whopping total of $10.50). I challenge any other Rose Bowl bound Longhorn to beat that =) It cost me $48 for the airplane ticket after my travel voucher, $62.50 for my Rose Bowl ticket (yeah, it's in the End Zone, but in row 13), and free lodging as I'm with my fabulous friend Sam. Ok, time to shut up and enjoy the New Year. I hope that all of yall are doing the same, and whatever you do, be safe tonight.

Here's to a peaceful and [insert your own Hallmark adjective here] 2005!

Tech Shocks Cal in Holiday Bowl

By Byron LaMasters

The Longhorns will still have to prove on Saturday that we deserved to go to the Rose Bowl, but at the very least, Cal doesn't have much of a case in arguing that they should've gone there after losing to Texas Tech 45-31. Mack Brown can breathe one big sigh of relief tonight, even if what really matters is how his team performs on Saturday. Either way, ya just gotta love this:

Cal had been in position to go to the Rose Bowl for the first time in 46 seasons, but was leapfrogged in the final Bowl Championship Series standings by Brown's Texas Longhorns, who ended up in Pasadena to face Michigan on Saturday.

The day the BCS pairings were released, Cal quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Brown "was a little classless'' for begging for poll votes to help his Longhorns, and that the system was "faulty.''

The Longhorns, by the way, beat Texas Tech 51-21 at Lubbock on Oct. 23.

Texas Tech fans mocked Cal with chants of "Overrated!'' in the closing minutes.

Hehe. Sooo, Aaron, whatcha sayin' about classless there? Huh?

Johnny Oates, R.I.P.

By Byron LaMasters

I guess I'll violate Karl-Thomas's suggestion of waiting until tomorrow to post, but I will at least avoid politics on Christmas Day.

Having grown up a Texas Rangers fan, I was saddened to read in the paper this morning that former manager Johnny Oates had passed away. I've been disillusioned from professional sports for several years now - I'll watch the occasional football or basketball game, but I'd prefer to watch college sports as at least some of them are playing for something other than money. Johnny Oates was one of the very few men in professional sports that did it for all the right reasons. Not for money or power, but because he truly loved baseball and the men he coached - a complete class act. May he rest in peace.

All three NBA Texas teams lost tonight. Dallas lost to the Atlanta Hawks, who are now 5-20, the Spurs lost 93-87 to Orlando, which moves them up to 15-10, and the Rockets lost to the Bobcats 90-87, which gives them their 7th win of the season.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy

By Nathan Nance

Guest post by Nate Nance

Derrick Johnson won the Bronco Nagurski award for best defensive player of the year today. It wasn't a shock because everyone knows how good Johnson is. I mean, 129 tackles, 19 for a loss, an interception and tying an NCAA record with 8 forced fumbles. That's good, good enough to also get Big 12 defensive player of the year.

I'm sure plenty of people reading this blog like Johnson because he is a Longhorn, but he is also a graduate of Waco High, so our paper is full of stuff about him. And he's a likeable guy. So congratulations and good luck with the Bednarik, Lombardi and Butkus awards Derrick.

I Demand A Recount In Ohio!

By Jim Dallas

58-48... Bengals?!?

"It was crazy," said the Bengals' Rudi Johnson, who ran for 202 yards and two touchdowns. "Just crazy."

The 106 combined points were the second most in an NFL game, trailing only the Redskins' 72-41 victory over the Giants on Nov. 27, 1966. Until Sunday, the most points in a game since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970 was 99 - Seattle beat Kansas City 51-48 in overtime on Nov. 27, 1983.

By far, though, the most fulfilling game of the day was watching the Texans stuff the Titans (or as I like to call them, the fake Oilers versus the ex-Oilers), coming from waaay behind to win the game 31-21 in Houston. In part, though, the spectacle occurred because the Titans offense completely melted down in the second half, with three big turnovers.

Poor Aggies

By Byron LaMasters

Well, it just wouldn't be Thanksgiving weekend without my writing a Poor Aggies post. However, it's really "Poor Longhorns" again this year. Yeah, we beat the Aggies again in one of the more bizarre football games (at least the first half) I've ever seen -- how often are three missed (combined) extra points followed up by 44 and 52 yard field goals? And what's up with a one-point safety?

Still, we put together a damn good football team. The 26-13 score doesn't give justice to the degree that the Longhorns dominated the last three quarters of the game. If we had a timeout at the end of the first half, and had been a bit less classy at the end of the game, that 26-13 victory could have easily had been 40-6. Go back and give us a couple of touchdowns against Oklahoma (ok, I know that's asking a lot), and we'd most likely be competing for the national championship come January. Coulda, woulda, shoulda won't a change thing. But it's also not fair that one of the best football teams in the country has to hope that some computer formula will arbitarily rank us ahead of California to even get a BCS bid. That's just about as stupid as creationism if you ask me. The system needs change, and its good to see Mack Brown leading the fight.

"This is one of best teams in the country," said Texas coach Mack Brown. "This team deserves to play in the BCS and if they don't, then we don't have a system (that works)."

Amen to that.

Update: More thoughts at the People's Republic of Seabrook.

I'm Thankful For Rich Alumni

By Zach Neumann

I was going to bitch about Iran tonight, but I find this story about UT Alum Joe Jamail a lot more entertaining (and less depressing). The NY Times writes:

Of the more than a dozen statues peppering the University of Texas campus here, one glorifies the first native-born governor, two pay tribute to deceased American presidents, and others honor Confederate leaders. Another statue is poised to join the cast on Friday, honoring a graduate who is a successful trial lawyer. The subject, Joe Jamail, a Houston alumnus who has donated $21.7 million to the university and its athletic programs, already has one bronze likeness at the law school and his name is on several campus sites. The newest statue of Mr. Jamail, who won billions of dollars for Pennzoil in a landmark suit in the 1980's, is scheduled to be unveiled inside the football stadium before the annual game against archrival Texas A&M. "It is absolutely appropriate to say thank you," said William Powers Jr., dean of the University of Texas Law School. "He is an avid Longhorn sports fan." But not everyone looks forward to another likeness. The statue, a donation from the law firm of Vinson & Elkins in Houston, makes Mr. Jamail the only person with two on the 350-acre campus, university officials say, and that distinction has rankled some faculty members. "One is enough, with due respect to whoever," said a journalism professor, Gene Burd. Professor Burd added that, at a time when public universities are desperate for money because of fluctuations in state financing, the new statue sent the wrong signal for people "who see this as another white male capitalist." "Considering all the talk about other statues, it is almost asking for a demonstration or incident," he added.

I’ve got no problem with white-male-capitalists, especially when they keep our football team on top. Speaking of which, I’m calling tomorrow’s game for Texas, 35-21.

Red Sox Win!!

For the first time in 86 years...


The curse does not exist. Yankees suck. John Kerry will be President.

The last time this happened we were in a relatively unpopular war... World War I.

Though it was not a presidential election year, an internationalist intellectual Democrat- Woodrow Wilson- was president (much like the man we will soon elect).

God, I am so excited I can barely breathe.

Congratulations to all of the guys that made this possible- Curt Schilling and Manny Ramirez (my two favorite players) especially. This is absolutely amazing.

The Jinx

By Byron LaMasters

There's all the talk about the jinx and the Boston Red Sox, but it's easy to argue that we've got 'em beat here in Texas.

The Texas Rangers have played in Arlington for 33 years.

Number of playoff series won?


The Houston Astros have played in Houston for 43 years.

Number of playoff series won until last night?


Combined, that's 76 years of Texas baseball without as much as a playoff series victory... until last night.

Red Sox fans could say it's nothing compared to an 86 year World Series drought, but at least they've won a frickin' playoff series since then.

Anyway, congrats to the Astros for breaking their jinx last night... everyone in Houston seems to be happy.

A Modest Proposal

By Andrew Dobbs

Whereas Texas' defeat this Saturday was largely the product of Texas native Adrien Peterson's ungodly performance, I have a modest proposal to prevent future acts of treason and betrayal such as the execreble Mr. Peterson's.

1. If you are a high school athlete in Texas and decide to go to any school in Oklahoma, Nebraska, Arkansas or Louisiana, your family will be imprisoned for 25 years without parole, their assets will be liquidated and the money will be used for scholarships for athletes at the University of Texas.

2. If you ever return to Texas, you will be sent to prison for life without possibility of parole.

I decided against punishing those who go to Texas A&M in order to get bipartisan support in the legislature. Any takers?

Full Crimsonification

We'll be back in burnt orange on Wednesday night. For now, though, we'll have to live with my best attempt of BOR in crimson and cream. I'm using #990000 for crimson (although I'm welcome to suggestions of a better crimson). That's what they use over at Sooner Sports, so I figured that it would be acceptable. God, this looks ugly.

The Crimson and Cream Report?

By Byron LaMasters

That's what we could be next week, if OU wins today. We know it won't happen, but if the unimaginable does happen (again), we'll be the Crimson and Cream Report for three days next week.

That's my bet with Keith Gaddie of Sooner Politics. If UT wins, we'll have the pleasure of viewing Sooner Politics in burnt orange.

Here's what Keith has to say:

Byron LaMasters, guru of Burnt Orange Report.com and I have a friendly wager on the OU-Texas Game. If OU wins, BurntOrangeReport goes Crimson and Cream; if UT prevails, SoonerPolitics will be a lovely shade of Burnt Umber for a few days.

And Keith's comments about the debate are priceless:

I am not going to comment on the debate for at least 72 hours, except to make this one observation: I am very pleased to hear that George Bush will not appoint any justices to the Supreme Court who would seek to uphold slavery . However, I do need some firewood, so I may be driving down to Crawford to pick up a rick or two.

And in case anyone is curious, we're not the only ones with a friendly wager over sports this weekend.

Boi From Troy and Pathetic Earthlings have a friendly wager over the USC / Cal game.

Update: Ouch. Shutout. That's 0/4 in my four years at UT. Get ready for Crimson and Cream on Monday.

Damn. And the burnt orange on Sooner Politics would have looked so good.

"Durin the summer, Oklahoma is hotter than two rats fuckin in a wool sock. This makes it a good time too do some inside shoppin. Whether your looking for bathtub gin or used guns, Oklahoma ain't known as the KMart of the Midwest for nothin".

"Lots of satates got rules about where you can exercise your constitutional right to shoot shit. Well, not here in Oklahoma. Bring your gun and keep what you kill!"

"While lots of states has has tryed to deny there heritage, you can join us for annual celebrations of the old South, a great time in our history. Spend the day watching reinactments, then spend the night gettin drunk as ten indians at the confederate ball"

Boonville Blog explains:

If it was up to George W. Bush the poor Red Sox and Astros would be home and we would not have an extra round of exciting playoff baseball. 27-1. It hurts when Bud Selig (yes, Bud Selig) has history on his side and you don't. George Steinbrenner, Peter Angelos and the rest of the owners were all correct. George W. Bush was wrong. Can you imagine baseball without the wild card. Sigh. This man is clearly unfit to be president. Will the Kerry campaign please take a stand on this!

Yup, Bush was the sole vote against the Wild Card:

Major League Baseball's decision in 1993 to realign its leagues into three divisions and include the team with the next-best record in the playoffs was considered heresy by the purists, particularly because it copied a concept from football, of all things.

The only baseball owner to vote against the change, which took effect in 1994 before the postseason was canceled by labor strife, was from Texas.

"I made my arguments and went down in flames. History will prove me right," said then-Rangers owner George W. Bush, whose foresight led him to bigger and better things.

"This is an exercise in folly."

Hmm... I'm sure that John Kerry would disagree. Go Red Sox!

(I'm an honorary Red Sox fan this October, beacause growing up in Dallas, I grew up a Rangers fan, so its hard to bring myself to be too excited about the Astros. There's no way I'd ever cheer for the Yankees, and well I figure that the Rangers curse won't end until the Red Sox take care of theirs. Plus, it might even bring some good karma to the Kerry campaign).

Keep Hope Alive

By Jim Dallas

During torts class today, about half the class (as far as I could tell) was paying only intermittent attention to the lecture, instead watching the Cubs lose to Cincinatti through the magic of streaming video. (On the other hand, I was barely paying attention because I kept falling asleep; I've gotten on to a really weird sleep schedule, and the "causation" chapter isn't exactly barn-burning excitement.)

At any rate, it's Wild Card Season, and the Astros are now in first place, with the Cubs and Giants a half-game down.

The Astros play the Rockies next, and if they blow up now, I'll be even more heartbroken than usual.

Oh yeah, the first presidential debate is tonight.

How can we possibly be expected to learn in such an environment?

The National Past Time

By Jim Dallas

According to wire reports, the Montreal Expos will announce today intentions to move to Washington, D.C.

A FOX Sports poll asks readers what the team's name ought to be changed to. I vote for "Republi-crats," only because every team named "The Senators" has ended up leaving Washington. And we all know the Republi-crats will never stop playing "insider" baseball. So it seems like a good-luck-charm sort of thing.

Baseball Blogging

By Andrew Dobbs

I know that Kuff is usually the one to do the blogging on our national pastime but as a fellow fan of the Thinking Man's Game, I feel the need to pontificate on my predictions for this fairly exciting end of the season.

My beloved Boston Red Sox have clinched a playoff spot for the second year in a row, maintaining a 6 game lead over Anaheim in the Wild Card race and sitting only 3 games behind the Spawn of Satan in the AL East. There is an outside chance that Boston could end up winning the division- they play the cellar dweller Devil Rays and the lackluster (yet still threatening) Orioles to close out their season. The cursed team that only a pedophile or communist could love, on the other hand, has a 3 game series against the AL Central Champs- the Minnesota Twins. Minnesota is the beneficiary of a weak division, but Johan Santana is almost a lock for the Cy Young and is pitching like nobody's business. After a rocky start, Santana will close out the regular season with a record of 20-6 and an AL best ERA of 2.62 and an AL best 260 Ks. New York lost two big ones to Boston and while they have home field advantage against the Twins, their starting rotation is hurting without Kevin Brown (his 2/3 IP, 6 Hit, 4 ER performance on Sunday was pathetic at best) and there is a chance that Boston could walk away with a division championship.

But is that what the Sox want? For all of their strengths, the Oakland As or the Anaheim Angels (whichever one wins the startlingly competitive race for the AL West) are both better teams than Minnesota. Unless they eclipse Minnesota in win percentage, the AL East champ will face off against the best of the AL West. It might be better for Boston to win the Wild Card, face off against Minnesota and quickly dispose of the Twins while the Yanks get bogged down against Oakland or Anaheim. The problem would be that Boston would have to start out against New York at Yankee Stadium- always a tough venue- if this is how it unfolds. Still, one way or another, Boston has a real shot at the pennant. New York will likely be the favorite (though Boston led them in their regular season series this year for the first time since 1999), but Boston followed by the AL West champ and then Minnesota in that order all have good shots. Anything can happen with the caliber of playing all of these teams are putting up.

But the real story isn't the AL- it's in our pal the National League. Four teams are still concievably in the hunt for the Wild Card spot (Chicago, San Fran 1 GB, Houston 1.5 GB and San Diego 3 GB). The late-breaking Giants have the good (or perhaps bad) luck of facing both San Diego and the division leading Los Angeles Dodgers. Still, with LA getting a vacation in the form of a four game series against the second to last place Colorado Rockies, I suspect LA will find a way to hold onto the lead in this division. Chicago is 1 game into a 4 game series against the depressing Cincinnati Reds before a 2 game shot against the 13 season straight NL East Division Champs Atlanta. Chi town will likely win the Wild Card, as I don't see Houston passing them in the NL Central.

But Wild Cards and the NL East and West Champs might as well wait until next year- this is the year of the Cardinal. St. Louis has by far the best record in baseball- a full 6 games better than the second best New York Yankees. With power hitting from Albert Pujols and other worldly fielding from Jim Edmonds, every position on the team is stocked with a rock star. They are about 14 games better than .500 on the road and since they will almost certainly play the NL West champ, their 21-9 record on the season against teams from that division is rather revealing. I have no doubt that they will find a way to win the NL pennant and I suspect that they will be favored in the Series. Their pitching is only so-so (their ERA leader- Chris Carpenter- is 17th in the Majors, their win leader- Jeff Supan- is 10th and their K leader- Carpenter- is 25th), their defense and hitting should put them over the top.

My final prediction? Boston wins the AL pennant (wishful thinking? perhaps...), St. Louis the NL and the curse will live on with the Cards beating the Sox in 6.

So some good ball should be going on in the next month or so, I hope to have some more posts on my other passion (besides politics, women, food and sleep)- sports- in the future.

And remember kids... Yankees Suck!

Lance Kicks Alpe d'Huez's Ass!

By Andrew Dobbs

Austin represents, baby! Alpe d'Huez is the toughest route in all of the Tour de France- 9.6 miles of hairpin turns, most named for fallen riders of the past. It rises sharply from the ground, the grade averaging almost 10%. For the first time this year the Tour made the trail an individual time trial each of the riders leaving the post one at a time, Armstrong (the yellow jersey holder) left last. His nearest opponent, Italian Ivan Basso left 2 minutes before him and Armstrong went so fast he passed him up and more than doubled his previous lead, all but locking up a record 6th victory.

For those of you not in Austin its hard to understand the love this town has for its favorite son. Every business has a "Go Lance" sign, the buses run "Go Lance" on their marquees. Lance Armstrong owns this town so it is exciting to see him doing so well.

Congrats Lance, here's to 6th in a row!

Back in the CWS Championship

By Byron LaMasters

Hook 'em! We're back in the CWS Championship Series:

Trailing 5-0 after the top of third inning, the Longhorns' offense connected on a season-best four home runs to help No. 2 Texas (58-13) rally to its 27th come-from-behind victory of the year with a 7-6 win over No. 5 Georgia (45-23) in front of 17,500 fans at Rosenblatt Stadium during the semifinal round of the 2004 College World Series on Wednesday, June 23. With the win, the Horns advance to the CWS Championship Series and will now play for a national title for the second time in the last three years.


Up next, the Longhorns will now play either Cal St. Fullerton or South Carolina in the best-of-three CWS Championship Series, which begins on Saturday, June 26 at 6 p.m. Central. Notably, each game of the series (June 26-28) will be televised by ESPN.

Go Horns!

Yay Pacers

By Jim Dallas

I usually don't care much for the entire NBA eastern conference, and frankly I don't care much for the Lakers or the Timberwolves either. But my buddy Dave is in town this week and is a big Pacers fan, and I guess it tends to rub off.

After getting out-played in games two and three, the Pacers came back to pound the Detroit Pistons 83-68 tonight in game four.

<Rasheed Wallace>The Pistons will not win game five. I guarantee it. You can write.</Rasheed Wallace>

Of course, I get the feeling whoever wins the eastern conference title will get to be the sacrificial lamb to L.A., but one can always hope.

Easter christians and the NBA Playoffs.

By Jim Dallas

The Houston Rockets clinched a spot in the Western Division playoffs Friday by beating the Denver Nuggets. It's the first time they've made the playoffs in five years, which means its time to drag out the Rockets paraphernalia again (but keep the Mavs stuff on stand-by just in case; after all, it's not about who wins, it's about who gets to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves...).

Meanwhile, it's Easter, and I probably ought to try to go to church tomorrow since it's only been, umm, since Christmas.

Why mention all of this? So I can make a torturously metaphorical comparison between bums like me who don't go to church enough, and umm, bums like me that don't watch enough basketball.

We know which team we're for, we know who's gonna win the big game, but that's really about it, and we like it that way.

Now, if I could just sprinkle in some colorful anecdotes about amiable foreigners and free trade, I'd have written an entire Tom Friedman column... praise!

UPDATE: In fairness, both Friedman columns this week are amazingly anectode free.

Sweet 16, Baby!

By Byron LaMasters

We're there again!

After a stingy defensive effort in a 66-49 victory over Princeton in round one of the 2004 NCAA Tournament on Thursday, No. 12 Texas' (25-7) offense shined in the Longhorns' 78-75 second-round win over No. 18 North Carolina (19-11) on Saturday in Denver's Pepsi Center. The victory sends UT to the NCAA "Sweet 16" for the third year in a row. Texas will play the winner of Sunday's Mississippi State-Xavier game in Atlanta's Georgia Dome on Friday, March 26 at a time to be determined.

I was able to catch the last five minutes of the game at this restaurant in the French Quarter. Beating UNC is, well, pretty cool.

TiVo Users Like Janet's boob

By Byron LaMasters

This is hilarious:

Janet Jackson's nearly bare breast during the Super Bowl halftime show was the most replayed moment measured by TiVo Inc. in its short history.

The TiVo service, which allows users to pause and do instant replays of live television, found that Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" attracted almost twice as many viewers as the game highlights.

San Jose-based TiVo did not release specific numbers. It has measured Super Bowl viewing patterns since 2002. The data was gathered on a zip code basis from an anonymous sample of 20,000 TiVo households.

It's funny how the FCC flips out (DOC file), but people voting with their TiVo machines must have liked what they saw. As for the incident, I was more amused than anything else. I've always thought that Americans have a silly prudishness about decency guidelines, but then again I understand how someone watching the show with their young children might be reasonably offended.

Don't Cry for Me Oklahoma

By Jim Dallas

Despite losing to K-State, Oklahoma finished 1st in the BCS rankings this year.

Although personally I think an LSU/USC matchup would have been more fun to watch.

In other news, despite being ahead of OSU in the polls, Texas slipped behind Ohio State to sixth place, based on some computer polls shafting the Longhorns. As widely expected, this was enough to get screwed out of a BCS bowl invite, and again Texas will go to the Holiday Bowl. Again. (Darnit).

The BCS is just plain evil... and Kuffner and Kevin Drum agree!

Don't cry for me Oklahoma,
The truth is you don't belong here
Your loss to K-State, made us irate
BCS hopes gone, maybe next year

Cowboys stomped.

By Jim Dallas

With 20 seconds left, the Miami Dolphins just picked off a pass in the End Zone to seal a 40-21 win. The Dolphins and Cowboys are both now 8-4.

I'm still impressed b the Cowboys' record this year, even if I'm glad to see them lose (and especially today on this very Happy Thanksgiving).

Well Kos ought to be happy. Tonight, the Chicago Cubs won their first postseason series since 1908. So if the Cubs win the NLCS we'll get to see if a meteor will take out a small country as Kos predicts. We'll see. Either way, go Cubs! It's hard not to root for a team that's been bad for so long (which I have first hand experience with growing up as a Texas Rangers fan).

Huh? Rush Limbaugh at it Again

By Byron LaMasters


"Sorry to say this, I don't think he's (McNabb) been that good from the get-go," Limbaugh said in unscripted remarks. "I think what we've had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well, black coaches and black quarterbacks doing well. There is a little hope invested in McNabb, and he got a lot of credit for the performance of this team that he didn't deserve. The defense carried this team."

Conservatives just aren't good at covering football. Dennis Miller is kind of funny, but he would make you scratch your head every five minutes on Monday Night Football. As for Rush Limbaugh, you'd think he longs for the days when he could keep Blacks "in their place". Ugh. It's comparable to some of the actions of YCT. YCT suggests that all minorities benefit from affirmative action. Rush suggests that Black coaches and Black quarterbacks are recipients of affirmative action. That's even sillier. Affirmative Action does not exist in sports. Teams do whatever it takes to put the best team out on the field and win.
