I’m gonna try something new and each week post the best links. It will probably be on a Thursday from here on out but today is such a good day that I’ll start the tradition on a Monday.

Read Bill’s column on Tiger Woods’ Sunday. I enjoyed it especially this paragraph:
“I am supposed to think that he’s a poor role model — that he’s an adulterer, that he’s selfish, that he’s a phony, that he behaves badly on golf courses, that he’s someone I wouldn’t want my son to emulate some day. That’s horses—. I want my son to know that people screw up, that nobody is perfect, that you can learn from your foibles. I want my son to watch “The Natural” some day, hear Roy Hobbs say, “Some mistakes you never stop paying for” and know that it’s not just words in a movie. I want my son to know that you haven’t lived until you fought back, that you haven’t won until you’ve lost, that you can’t understand what it’s like to relish something until you suffered, too. I want him to understand that it’s the 21st century, that we sit around picking our heroes apart all day, that we expect them to be superhuman at all times, that we get pissed off when they aren’t, that it’s hypocritical if you really think about it.”

If anyone has any ideas of a team I can support that isn’t named the Rangers please let me know. I have given up on the Astros, which is a surprise cause I think to myself why was I even supporting the Astros from the beginning?
No, I’m not a fairweather fan as much as I would like to I would love to have no emotional connection with this team but I do. This has always been my team from the Killer B’s to the no name Astros I have always been an Astros fan. I mean when I need to stop thinking about things I recite the 1997 team in my head: Shane Reynolds, Tim Bogar, Pat Listach, Derek Bell and so on…
I just can’t do it anymore, I look at this team and I expect them to lose. You know it’s bad when the Pirates are better than you.
Like I’ve told Janelle before, I don’t like praying about sports because there are so many bigger things in life but Lord if you are reading this please help the Astros. I don’t want you to help them win but help them to please not completely suck! I mean baseball is a religion so please help them.
I can’t quit you, Astros but I’m trying.
God Bless (the Astros) and Sic Em Bears
Here is my quick take on the NCAA Championship Game tonight. Butler will win, again just like the NFL Playoffs, my picks have been terrible so if you are going to bet based on my opinion then you should take UConn.
Since I really tried to fill my NCAA bracket out by using pure logic and completely failed I am picking Butler for one reason alone, I like Brad Stevens and he looks like a real cool guy when he wears his glasses.
I mean look at those glasses. He looks sharp and then go and compare that to Jim Calhoun. Stevens wins by a landslide. I want to play for a guy who dresses like he coaches, sharp! There’s a reason Stevens wears those glasses though and it’s not a funny matter so don’t make fun of him. That alone is why Butler will win this game. It will not because Butler has more experience or because UConn is full of freshman.
