The Upsidedown Sports World Of KW

The sports world seems upside down to me the last few days:

  • The Titans just blew out the Jags and looked great doing it. Vince Young played with confidence and seemed like a leader. The defense was pretty darn awesome (save for those two Jones-Drew scampers). When did this happen? I’m almost more pissed at the first 6 games seeing them play like this… where was this the last six weeks?

  • The Colts nearly lost a game to the 49ers. Peyton was sacked three times, had a fistful of “three-and-outs”, and was missing throws long and short all day. The Colts offense was so frustrated that they had to turn to a trick play to score the go-ahead touchdown (an awesome trick play, by the way).

  • A-Rod is awesome-ish… hitting home runs and doubles and getting RBIs in the—gasp—World Series. Yankee fans will probably still not let him out of jail.

  • The Predators aren’t flat-lined after all. Now 6-6-1 after winning 4 out of their last 5, the team looks like a contender for one of those lesser playoff spots. For now. The defense looks great, and the offense is starting to gel.

  • The entire city of Green Bay booed Brett Favre.

  • Eli Manning looks like me playing QB. Tony Romo suddenly looks like Peyton Manning, with zero interceptions the last three weeks.

  • USC lost bigger than they have in over a decade.

  • Andre Agassi says he used to wear a hairpiece when he was playing tennis in his prime. W. T. F.?
Crazy past couple days... many things happening the opposite of how I expected them too. Especially with Agassi's hair.

Yankee fans, I think, will officially let ARod off the hook in a probationary gesture if they win this World Series, which looks pretty likely.

ARod won't officially get that "True Yankee" status until he's as money as Jeter is in these games. That game-winning double last night was only his second hit of the Series.

Yeah...Titans looked liked they'd wanted Vince Young since at least Game 4 the way they played yesterday. Receivers were catching passes, defenders were flying to the's amazing what a fresh start does for teams sometimes. Of course a lot of Chris Johnson helped too.

The way the Preds look...makes you wonder how they'll play when they get Arnott back.

By the way, money to a Yankee fan means having a defining moment, usually a HR:

Jeter's Jeffrey Maier HR.

Scott Brosius GW-HR off Byun Yun Kim in the 2001 WS

Aaron Boone GW-HR, 2003 ALCS Game 7 off Tim Wakefield.

Jim Leyritz, game-tying HR, 1996 WS, off Mark Wohlers.

Tino Martinez, grand slam in Game 1 of the 1998 WS, off Mark Langston.

Those guys are always looked to with affection. They could care less if those guys did nothing else. They respect that the Yankee magic worked through them in mysterious ways.
