Last Sunday of November 2017

The hubby and I attended our church's second worship service this morning. We weren't moving about too quickly, and that is okay. Here is the wrap up for yesterday's games.
  1. Georgia vs. Georgia Tech
  2. Oklahoma vs. West Virginia 
  3. Clemson vs. South Carolina
  4. Texas A&M vs. LSU 
  5. Ohio State vs. Michigan

  7. Appalachian State vs. Georgia State
  8. Washington State vs. Washington
  9. Alabama vs. Auburn - so thrilled to be wrong! ๐Ÿ‘
  10. Notre Dame vs. Stanford - I dislike the Fighting Irish, so this one was good news, too! ๐Ÿ‘
Now, on to Aggie round ball business!

The ladies play the Texas Tech Lady Red Raiders this afternoon. My son and I are on opposite sides of the fence. Gig 'em, Aggies! Whoop! Aggies win, I predict. 

The men play the USC Trojans tonight. My Daddy and I are on opposing sides for this game. I love both teams so much that I will be pleased with the outcome, I guess. Push.

Back on the Face of the Earth!

I've battled a cold/laryngitis thing that did not affect my typing so much as it drained my energy levels. Now I am back, just in time for rivalry weekend in NCAA football.

Here are my picks for the day, according to ESPN's College Pick 'Em. You know I don't alter the results to cheat.
  1. Georgia vs. Georgia Tech
  2. Oklahoma vs. West Virginia - I am so not a Baker M. fan. It was like that before last week's tasteless incident and this week's slap on the wrist punishment from his coach. Harrumph.
  3. Clemson vs. South Carolina
  4. Texas A&M vs. LSU - I am not disloyal but realistic. Ugh. Please let me be wrong!!! Gig 'em, Aggies! Whoop!
  5. Ohio State vs. Michigan
  6. Boise State vs. Fresno State
  7. Appalachian State vs. Georgia State
  8. Washington State vs. Washington
  9. Alabama vs. Auburn
  10. Notre Dame vs. Stanford

Way to Go, Dodgers!

It was a thrill to leave choir rehearsal and check the score only to discover that the LA Dodgers were ahead of the Chicago Cubs in the sixth inning with a score of 9-1. I may have to watch a rebroadcast of the game this weekend on MLB just to see how that incredible third inning went.

I know it's a day early; however, I have an early appointment at the beauty shop, so I won't be rushing back to post this. Better prepared than not.
  1. Louisville vs. Florida State
  2. Oklahoma State vs. Texas
  3. Iowa State vs. Texas Tech
  4. Western Michigan vs. Eastern Michigan
  5. Indiana vs. Michigan State
  6. UCF vs. Navy - I am pulling for the Midshipmen, though.

Crazy Collapses!

I had to resort to phone updates after witnessing the epic collapse of the Houston Astros  during the bottom of the seventh inning. I don't even want to recount what happened. It was terrible as though the boys had forgotten what to do to win a baseball game: pitch well, field well, and hit well. They play again at 4:08 P.M. I'll try to watch when I can or at least follow on my workstation machine if I am not in front of a television.

Over in the NLCS, things are going swimmingly for Dodgers fans like me. Cubs fans exited the game as things kept getting worse and worse and worse. I understand the sentiment. There is no rubbing it in on my little blog. It's heartbreaking.

Championship Time!

My co-worker is ecstatic about the win last night. I knew she recorded the game and kept my mouth shut until she returned home from coaching her volleyball teams. My life was safer that way. ๐Ÿ˜„

Now we get some action in the league championships! Houston hosts New York, and I'm pulling for the "local" team down south. Go, 'Stros! We'll see if Tanaka can handle Keuchel in a pitching duel. Advantage Astros.

Here We Go Again. . .

I was able to watch the game last night with the Tribe hosting the Bronx Bombers. Now manager Joe Girardi won't sit in quite the hot seat for the near future. Such short-sightedness! I am not a Yankees fan, but I tire of the instant villain status afforded managers when they make what they feel in the moment is the best decision. Do they regret decisions that cost them playoff berths or championships? Yes, of course. Just quit the negative natter.

Tonight the Cubs face the Nationals in the NLDS in Washington, D.C. One of my co-workers is a lifelong Cubs fan who has been so happy this past year. We'll see if her Cubs face my Dodgers in a day or two.

Hat Trick!

Josรฉ Altuve was ON FIRE in the game against the BoSox. Watch out, he is a man with the plan. Congratulations to the Astros on their division game victory. They have work to do tomorrow starting around 1:05 P.M. A hat trick! Three homers? In the same stratosphere as The Babe with post-season homers? Yes, the Lady will toss her hat to celebrate.

The Bronx Bombers got shut out by the Tribe. We'll see how things shape up when Sabathia takes the mound against Kluber.

In the NL world, we have the defending World Series Champions Chicago Cubs at the Washington Nationals. My coworker is a rabid Cubs fan, but I'm going to pull for the Hair Bear and his crew.

My Dodgers take on the red-hot Diamondbacks. Let's hope they cool off those big bats that lit up the Rockies last night. I mean. Wow.

Yay for "Cruz"

It was a day to celebrate for the Miami Marlins. Another Stanton Smash! Or should I say a Cruz Celebration? His mama calls him "Cruz," so I thought I'd use that in my title.

My Dallas Cowboys won last night, 20-18, and my family is happy to have gridiron on the menu. I wish the NFL would finish up their investigation into E. Elliott's shenanigans. Tsk! Give him a suspension for a game or two to send a message. End of story.

Congratulations to the AL All-Stars on the win last night. I did not tune in but kept up on my ESPN app to see how things were faring. Yes, I was disappointed that my boy Giancarlo did not repeat as the Home Run Derby champion on Monday evening, but my congratulations to Aaron Judge.

I'll only be able to catch Sports Nation on ESPN later today, so that is what I will do. Meanwhile, make it a good day. Be kind.
