Where We Stand

Rockies Marquis Wins 13th Game in Denver

 

Hey, are you curious as to who we're going to follow this postseason?

Me too! Let's take a look! (rubs hands together in glee)

There have been a whopping SEVEN bids so far, with the high bid being $36.00. Of course, we'll have no idea what team we're going to cheer for until the mystery bidder reveals himself and makes his proclomation (pleasebethetwinspleasebethetwinspleasebethetwinspleasebethetwins).

We won't know our collective fate until Wednesday morning. Until then, let's take a look at how the playoffs are shaking out.

Tuesday, October 6, 4:07 CT/5:07 ET:

Tigers @Twinks in the game of decade!!! Well okay, at least the game of the year. Go Twinks!

Wednesday, October 7:

ALDS Game 1: TBD (um, we don't even know ONE team that will be playing? Okay then) 5:07 CT/6:07 ET

Colorado v. Philly 1:37 CT/2:37 ET

St. Louis v. Los Angeles 8:37 CT/9:37 ET T

Thursday, October 8: ALDS "B": TBD Time:TBD (no offense, but the AL really needs to get it sorted) STL v. LAD COL v. Philly I was going to do the whole playoff schedule, but to be honest, it's too much a mess right now. I'll update it later when MLB it's a little more firm (that's what she said!)

Guess what I just read on MLBTR? The Orioles want a right-handed or switch-hitting first baseman in his prime. And their payroll went from $77 million to start the year to $30 million going into next year. Think Milty could be branded as a first baseman?

I think they owe us that much. Probably that plus Brian Roberts.

On plus about Milton at first base is that he'll probably beat this shit out of any runner trying to leg out an infield single.

JulieDiCaro said:

Who are you cheering for tonight? Packers, Vikes, or a universal spot of ether to engulf the whole field?

I'm going with #3.

or maybe this sums up my feelings better:

@alexquigley: Who am I rooting for on Monday Night Football? 44 steroid-related suspensions, that's who.

Carl Heartscubs Gierhan said:

I'd want the Vikes to win if they didn't have Brett Favre. It's a no-win situation.

ESPN makes me want to puke.

I want the Vikings to lose, because they are undefeated. It would be nice to pick up a game on them.

I want Percy Harvin to kick ass. Cause I need the points. And AP needs to suck.

I don't care about Favre. I don't hate him, I don't like him. I think that some of the Packers fans are being babies about the whole thing.

I think Milton Bradley will be a good player next year, and trading him would be both bad and wrong.

Also, ESPN sucks at analyzing sports. They do an ok job of showing it. I hope the game is a blowout either way after the 1st quarter.

Carl Heartscubs Gierhan said:

I would like for Bradley to return and do well next year. I just don't think it's going to happen, and I don't want us to get fleeced getting rid of him.

So Max made the boys "football food" for dinner. "Football food" consists of (and I'm not making this up) chicken wings, chicken nuggets, popcorn chicken, and something called "chicken fries." They are all gleefully stuffing their faces in the front of the tv.

:S

Haha! From Maim:

@anniemaim: Yes, Hank. I've been ready for the past 10 minutes, but was instead subjected to a Brett Favre lovefest. Gross.

Hahaha:

@kerrence: HEY GUYS DID YOU KNOW FAVRE THREW A BILLION FAVREDOWNS THE GAME AFTER HIS FAVRE DIED FAVREFAVREFAVRE

Maim said:

I'm having trouble remembering that I want the Packers to win. Who knew this game would make me feel like puking?

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

I have to say, as much as I hate the Pack, I find myself hoping Rodgers will throw a billion touchdowns.

JulieDiCaro said:

"Jermarcle Frinkey" sounds like a Harry Potter name.

Carl Heartscubs Gierhan said:

You had me so confused with this... turns out it's Jermichael Finley.

JulieDiCaro said:

wow--who would have thought forest green and pink would look so putrid together?

Maim said:

Rargh. I'm supposed to go to Pops for Champagne for industry night because some dudes from work are guest bartending. But I like couch. Mmmm, couch.

JulieDiCaro said:

Boooo! Stay her and make fun of Favre with me.

Maim said:

user-pic

Well, the friend who is whining about my whining about not wanting to go doesn't get off work until 10:30, so I'll be able to sit here at least for another hour before I have to leave to figure out how to take the CTA to there.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

do you follow @kerrence on twitter? she's delightfully snarky about sports. she reminds me of you. :)

Maim said:

user-pic

I did click on your #FLAG tag to see what it was about and read her tweets.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

my dream is to watch a game with both of you at the same time. LOL

Maim said:

user-pic

Haha. It's important not to dream TOO big, Julie...

Can Jay Cutler be there too?

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

this site will NOT load for me with 50,000 errors! is anyone else having this problem? grrrrrr!

Carl Heartscubs Gierhan said:

user-pic

No problems for me for awhile. Maybe it's because you were mean to Sam Zell.

Maim said:

user-pic

I'm heading out now to meet a dude at a place before I go to the other place. He's cute.

I'll make fun of Favre plenty while I'm there, Julie; don't worry.

Do they still sing the blues in Chicago, when baseball season rolls around?

Carl Heartscubs Gierhan said:

Is that a quote or a philosophical question?

When the snow melts away, do the Cubbies still play in their ivy-covered burial ground?

Doc said:

user-pic

unfortunately, yes. I miss Steve.

Carl Heartscubs Gierhan said:

The SO and I are going to New Orleans next week... anything we shouldn't miss?

JulieDiCaro said:

Preservation Hall. You'll have to stand in line to get in, but it's sooooo worth it.

Annoying thing about those AL TBD games: after the Tigers and Twins settle things, MLB actually gives the Yankees the friggin' choice of which day they want to play their first game. Is this the playoffs or a play date? "We'll either play Wednesday or Thursday, it depends on if we can get A-Rod in to see the doctor. Joe thinks he might have strep."

Ugh. Stupid baseball.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

Hehe.

Maim said:

Oh man. I'm mad as fire.

We went to the "industry night" where my coworkers were "guest bartending." I had mentioned that the place was too nice for me, and my coworker was like, "No way! You'll be taken care of!"

...So I went with my friend, and I bought the first two rounds in cash, and she put the next two on her credit card. They ended up charging TWICE as much on her card as they had charged for the first two (same drinks). One of the bartenders took care of it (by putting it on his own credit card), but I had to babysit her in the cab while she cried about it, and I also feel kind of crappy about it. I'm in a pissy mood and probably wont' be able to sleep now.

Do we friggin' know which team we have to pretend to like yet or what?

secdelahc said:

We'll know tomorrow. Or, I should say, the auction ends tomorrow. We're up to a whopping $36!
