Editor's Note--Whilst we were all proud of the Big D 2-1 record for college football last week (well Big D wasnt. Remember he only smiles a little with perfection), some of you "poo-pooed" his baseball selections. He did lose Game 1 in the OAKLAND vs Detroit series, and remember he took BOTH the ATHLETICS and SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS to win the World Series at 8-1. Those are the selections some of you poo-pooed. Well you know what? The only poo-poohing going on right now is that of your bookmaker in his pantalons (french for pants).You laughing at OAKLAND or SAN FRAN today pal? Only if you're crazy.Lotta talk about debates these days. You can try and debate that Big D doesnt "bring it" nearly everyday, but you would lose that debate. Oh sage one, the floor is yours. Go forth and let us all prosper.--R.B.
Richie, what's the old adage? "The game aint over till the fat lady sings?" Well the game aint over. No fat lady singin. The baseball is quite interesting, no? We feel like pressing our investments today ok? The reds havent lost 3 straight at home all year? Thats nice. If CAIN pitches a shutout they will lose, yes? We'll go with the GIANTS. Oh Verlander on the hill for the Tigers tonight in OAKTOWN? He's a decent sized favorite? Oh. Thats a lotta GOOD news for the ATHLETICS. Take. And just so we give you action all day long, try the CARDS to oust the Nationals. After all, the Nats NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED the game.
And since we are feeling so peppy. We'll play 1 college game tonight. 1 tomorrow night. 1 Saturday night. Spread it around. Speaking of spread, best team in the country right now? No, silly, not Alabama. We're talking point spread baby. Why its the WESTERN KENTUCKY HILLTOPPERS friend. They are at Troy tonight laying 2. Going for their 9th straight conference victory and their 15th (!!) straight pointspread victory, we will lay it.
Tomorrow night? NAVY has righted the ship in a big way. Now theyre talking bowl chances. Get a tiny 1.5 at Central Michigan. Wanna know how many games the Chippewas of Central Michigan have covered out of their last 25? 4. Friday eve it will be 4 of 26. Take.
Finally, in a makeup game from the original August 30th schedule we'll play those fancy BULLDOGS of LA TECH who will be getting 7.5 at home versus the "mighty" Texas A+M. Wanna know how many games out of the last 13 LOUISIANA TECH has covered? 12. That's h-o-t. Like B-I-G D-I-C-K. Take.
So the soon to be happy recap: Today at 1pm Eastern in the daytime playoff businessperson's special (oh my!!!) SF Pick em @ Cincy, STLOUIS CARDS pick em @ Washington, and OAKLAND+140 vs Detroit.
In the football tonight: WESTERN KENTUCKY -2 @ Troy, Tomorrow NAVY+1.5 @ Central Michigan, and Saturday LA TECH+7.5 vs Texas A&M.
Good luck and god bless. And for some nice reminiscing of October baseball in years gone by:
