Let’s talk sports

That’s been what’s going of for the last two weeks. The baseball season is over, but since I’m a Sox fan, I still have a team to cheer for: Atlanta. They’re playing the Cubs in the NLDS and, of course, the Cubs can’t win. Today has to be the best game so far. Sosa ended the game at home with a man on base. He hit a ball to the warning track, which was caught, tying the series at 2. The Cubs, or more specifically Sosa, could have put things away, but they (and he) choked as usual. (Normally I’m not that, shall I say vicious, about things I put in my blog, but some of the Cubs fans on my floor are really driving me nuts. They think the Cubs actually have a chance)

In Purdue sports, we beat Notre Dame. That is by far the highlight of the football season so far. It was a big win, 23-10. Then this weekend we beat the Fighting Illini by a lot. Looks like we might be going somewhere warm for a bowl game. Finally, in local sports (as in my roommate and myself) we’ve been playing some Frisbee rather late at night. He got an illuminted frisbee. If you remember from last semester with the glow-in-the-dark frisbee, this one is a great improvement. It also proved to us that drunk people are attracted to shiny things.

A brief note on what I’m munching on right now, mint Oreos. They’re awesome, and when they’re on sale for $2 at Wal-Mart they’re a great deal. As my friend puts it “they could put the girl scouts out of business,” referring to the mint Oreos.

Last weekend was a lot of fun. My parents came down for the game, as usual, but they surprised me when they offered to take me and a few of my friends out for dinner. We went to the Texas Roadhouse, which is a steak place with really good food. The previous night I took out 6 of my friends to Steak ‘n Shake (where else) with the few bucks that I made from selling my parents tickets for the Arizona game (which they couldn’t make it to). They also weren’t able to make it here this weekend. I did my best to try and get one of my friends from home to come down here to see the game, so the tickets didn’t go to waste, but something got in the way of that. Oh well.

So far, we haven’t been to Steak ‘n Shake this weekend, which is rather surprising. We went to Krispy Kreme last night with some different people than usual. It always a lot of fun to meet new people who have a lot of the same interests as you. Hopefully we’ve found a few more people for our Steak ‘n Shake runs, and just to “hang out” with.

At the end of next week we start October break I’ll be going home Saturday after the football game against Penn State. I also have a speech to do on Internet security, but that shouldn’t be all that hard. I’m looking forward to going home and seeing some friends.

    I know plenty of die-hard sox fan who offer congradulations to the cubs. Considering we are still ONE city. Can’t the bitter jealousy just end?
