The World Series, Randy Moss, And College Football

Titans claim WR Randy Moss off waivers

In another week filled with sports stories ranging from sublime to bizarre, three events of note caught my eye that has inspired me to write yet another post of multiple subjects.

Baseball season is now over, a mercurial wide receiver makes headlines yet again, and college football's landscape goes through more turnover.

Let's get this show on the road!

San Francisco Giants End Long World Series Drought.

The San Francisco Giants ended a 56 drought between World Series titles by defeating the Texas Rangers in 5 games to become the 2010 World Champions. The Giants rode the arms of starting pitchers Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain, 21 year-old Madison Bumgarner, and closer Brian Wilson to what was to be easy pickings against the Rangers vaunting hitting attack.

But the surprise star was aging shortstop and World Series MVP Edgar Renteria. Renteria hit 2 homers and knocked in 6 teammates including the series clinching 3 run shot in game five. Edgar is now contemplating retirement after a very good major league career that included 2 World Series titles.

Congratulations to both the Giants and Renteria!

Randy Moss Moving Again.

In what I thought was a stunning development, The Minnesota Vikings suddenly waived wide receiver Randy Moss just a month after acquiring his services from the New England Patriots for a third round draft choice in the 2011 NFL draft.

Moss did little to revitalize the Vikings passing game and reportedly got upset over bad food from a catering service. Whatever the case, it was Randy's attitude that bit his butt yet again and Vikes' coach Brad Childress has publicly regretted making that trade.

Moss has been claimed on waivers by the Tennessee Titans to bolster their passing game which surprised me as I thought the St. Louis Rams would claim him ahead of the Titans. We'll see what happens.

The Ever Changing Landscape Of College Football.

More upsets last weekend led to more changes to the headache that is the BCS standings. Previously unbeaten Michigan State and Missouri got thrashed by Iowa and Nebraska respectively and Oregon leapfrogged Auburn as the nation's new top dog (or duck).

Two key games to keep an eye on this weekend as #3 TCU travels to #5 Utah for what should be the Mountain West title and #6 Alabama plays #10 LSU in what should be a defensive struggle for positioning in the SEC West.

Then we can watch the BCS show at 8:15 PM Sunday to see the new standings...Or not.
