Weekend Thoughts

sorry for the lack of activity, got a new job (same company) and a little swamped with the transition... besides there isn't much to get excited about until the nfl draft. sixers are going nowhere and the flyers are an abomination right now.

highlight of the weekend (if you are a tiger woods fan) was tiger woods winning the buick invitational with his c-game. the guy is just sick.

Turned off the Buick with Olazabal up by a stroke (you said stroke) with Tiger coming up to the par-5 18th hole...found out today that he birdied the hole, forced a play-off and Olazabal choked on a putt for him to win. He is pretty freaking good and I am excited to see how this new points system will work.

Phillies finally unloaded one of their surly tools. Got Rhodes...I guess it will help the pen...doesn't excite me, but at this point I think any pitching help they get will be good. I am looking forward to baseball, but guess that I am a glutton for punishment.

Flyers get lambasted by the Lightning and it looks like another Philly meltdown. This is getting painful.

Sixers win 2 without Iverson. I just don't get this team. They beat fairly weak teams, but lost to both previously with him. There is something wrong with that team. I just can't figure it out. By trading him, you move your best player and a ton of points.....but this is a team in dire need of something....I don't know what.

Saw the Senior Bowl, or at least some pieces of it. The QB for Vanderbilt (Cutler) can really move the ball. He's young but a really live arm and good size. D-Brickshaw has got good feet and I think he is going to be a stud LT. Like Charlie Whisenhunt from Clemson....arm is not as good as Cutler's but looked good. Also heard that Robinson played well after I went out. I would draft him and make him a "Slash"....played as much attention as I could to Chad Greenway as he is a guy that the Eagles may look at. He looked okay, but it's tough to gauge talent when you can't have shifts, motion, trips or OLB blitzes unless it is short yardage situations.

It's getting to the point where my screaming at the TV during Flyers games doesn't affect the cat anymore....

I apologize for starting to watch hockey again, as I think I'm a jinx (they were only down 2 goals to TB when I turned the game on). Didn't I post a while back that the Flyers would go on a downward slide about this time? Don't worry too much though as they'll go on a nice little roll to close out the regular season before dropping a stinker in round 2 of the playoffs.

At least Phil knows enough not to anger the hockey gods. The hockey gods must be tough MotherF'ers...
