October the Sports Solstice


Fri, Nov 2nd, 2001
Posted in

Monday, October 29, 2001

October is the month when the four major sports converge, meeting like some kind of Autumn solstice. Hockey players are on the ice, their sticks held high; basketball is just taking shape with the exhibition season underway; football is in its seventh week of action; and baseball is moving toward its annual climax. Dont you just love to see the Yanks in the series after all that has happened this year?

In Hockey, the Minnesota Wild are off to a great start, outperforming such teams as the Colorado Avalanche and the Pittsburgh Penguins to name a few. For a second year team, this is an omen of good things to come. But the season is long and weary and only time will tell if the Wild have the moxy to make the playoffs. (Moxy. I always wanted to use that word in a sentence).

In the NFL, the Vikings have been able to wipe a little bit of the egg off their face after dominating the Packers over a week ago. Just when you are about to give up on these hapless Norsemen they pull out a performance like that.

Can you believe that Da Bears are in first place in the Central Division with a 4 and 1 record. And the Lions? Nothing for five. Ouch!

Can anyone touch the Rams? They seem invincible. Last week, playing without star running back Marshal Faulk, they made the powerful New York Jets look bad, bad, bad.

The Broncos and the Colts are having a mid-season crisis, unable to keep their high-octane offenses in full-gear. Could that P word be raising its pretty head - Parity. Are we looking at parity in the NFL with the likes of San Diego and Cleveland starting to find their way after years of obscurity?

Well, there is still a lot of season left before we figure out who will play the Rams in New Orleans.

Oh, baseball, that national past-time. Oh, Yankee Stadium, in the blue-collar, lunch-box section of New York in the Bronx. Oh, how we love you.

I am a big time Yankees fan and after September 11 I am a huge Yankees fan. Can I be so bold as to say, a Yankee win in the series would be a win for America? Could they be a team of destiny after dismantling the seemingly invincible Seattle Mariners machine in five games in the American League Championship? Will the Yankee empire continue? Well find out soon enough.

This is going to be a pitching series with the Arizona Diamondbacks Curt Schilling and Randy Johnson up against the Rocket Roger Clemons and Mike Mussina. Wow! .....

If you still have a few bulbs lingering around in bags it's now or never time. They're not that hard to plant and it doesn't take long at all. You'll be glad you did come spring.

Two good rules f .....

Im all goofed up again. Daylight savings time, or lack of it, is the culprit. Just when a guy is getting used to it then we spring ahead or fall back. It makes sense in my mind, but my body just doesnt buy the reali .....

The Rev. Jerry Falwell is what poet Carl Sandburg would call a bunkshooter. Pat Robertson is one too.

Full-flushing, bonafide bunkshooters. Conjurers, magicians, illusionists, pulling the wool over many people .....
