A Great Month In Sports.

Well...I finally got my butt off the couch to finally get the chance to talk about what a month it has been in sports. I mean where do you begin? Tennis players going gangsta cursing out line judges? Or how about bench clearing brawls in baseball? Or the Hunt for October in baseball? or how about the early season in college football and NFL? Or the the Great One stepping down as coach? You see, every time I try to get up, something amazing just seems to happen. That's why I been gone for a little while. Okay, let's recap some of these highlights really quick. Who would've though Serena would show her Compton side a little bit, going after the line judge like that? I know she wants to win and shes ultra competitive, but you got to control that anger. She apologizes plenty of time and it's over with for me. Federer got fine the change in his back pocket for cursing at an official. If you going to fine someone like him, at least make him write a check. Baseball. October is just around the corner, which means Jeter is due to make a incredible play, A-Rod to choke, and the NL to fall. Yankees are rolling, although they have cooled just a little, but they got a nice 7 game lead on the Sox after beating them tonight. Cardinals got their division locked up. Sorry Cubs, add another year to the drought. There's going to be big changes in the Windy City. The Rockies are once again rolling as they have shown to do in the past, playing great baseball. Everything is locked up except for the race for home field. Dodgers better watch out. They got a squad that can go to the World Series, although the NL looks tougher then it did early in the season. I can't wait until the playoffs. Plenty of stories to come in October. The NFL is off and running. J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets! okay Jets, following the Ravens recipe of last year, a teaspoon of rookie quarterback, ten cups of the run game, and let the defense finish cooking the opposing offense in the oven. mark Sanchez is going to be a big time star in New York, and that vaunted defense is causing mayhem to teams. Rex Ryan is quite the mouthpiece but very refreshing and is working as he fires up the New York Football Jets. Another surprise, Titans 0-2? Chris Johnson is doing his part big time, and not having Albert Haynesworth there is a huge lost, literally. That pass defense needs to stop treating these games like arena league. Speaking of arena league, someone needs to tell the Saints that they are going against NFLcaliber defenses, not Pop Warner. Drew Brees is making this really easy. He's on pace to throw 90 something touchdowns this season. I'll go under for that as great as he is. My G-men are off to a fast start, just ruining the Cowboy's stadium debut. Cowboys got some work to do. Romo needs to cut down the turnovers. And can the Lions FINALLY, FINALLY get a win? It's possible this week, seeing how the Redskins are playing. I'm rooting for the Lions this week. Niners are off to a good start with their power running game, and without a certain rookie diva wideout. Which Cutler are the Bears getting this week? And who has the easiest quarterback job that gets to hand the ball off to Adrien Peterson? guesses? Brett Farve. Let's talk college! Down goes Oklahoma! Down goes BYU! Down goes Ole Miss! Down with Oklahoma St! Down goes Ohio State! Down goes USC! I need to breathe. I can't keep up with these upsets. I love them. It's what makes college football so exciting. MIA is coming back with that old school MIA swagger. Jacory Harris, Heisman dark horse? the upsets are great. Best from CAL sums it up. He is the running back in the nation. Matt Barkley, future first pick in the draft according to Mel Kiper and Todd McShay, has been great until the injury sidelined him, and we know what happen there. He'll be back this week though. Michigan already showing promise not just for this season, but for the future. There's so much to talk about in the world of sports but I'll leave it here for now, with more to come. I can't wait.
