I’m rooting for the Red Sox (yes, I know, I’m a bad guy…)

I’m rooting for the Red Sox (yes, I know, I’m a bad guy…)

The baseball gods are obviously watching this World Series with great interest.

They’ve evened the series at 2-games-apiece after Saturday night’s bizarre ending in St. Louis.

Just the way it should be.

First off, the call on Saturday night was the right one to make.  Was it a dreadful way to lose a World Series game — or any game for that matter?  Sure.  Should Saltalamacchia have his head examined for throwing the ball down there in the first place?  Absolutely. But, that was interference, and the right call, and St. Louis won within the rules.

That said, Boston didn’t “deserve” to lose Game 3.  Thus, the baseball gods stepped in last night to even the series with Boston’s 4-2 win at Busch Stadium.

For reasons I can’t explain – at all – I’m hoping Boston wins this World Series.

I know, I know…that’s almost as bad as hoping the Yankees win.

Like I said, I can’t explain it.

Call it “professional jealousy”, I guess.

I only dream about our Orioles being as successful as these Boston teams have been over the last decade or so.  I realize it’s an impossibility, but that doesn’t mean you can’t at least wish your franchise resembled a winning one like the Red Sox.

I picked Boston in seven before the series started.

I hope I’m right.

But I’m not sure why I’m hoping that…

The Matthew Stafford “fake spike” at the end of the game was legendary.

That said, if he doesn’t pull it off and the clock hits zero after that play, he’s the biggest goat in in the NFL this morning.

I assume, as he ran down to the one-yard line, he figured, “What the hell…it’s the Cowboys…they’ll fall for anything.”

The Dez Bryant explosion was also “legendary”.  Sure, he had a great game, but that’s no reason to act like a buffoon at the end of the afternoon when the Lions cruised down the field to score the winning points.  The next time the Dallas offense gets shut-down and loses a game 20-7, I hope one of the linebackers explodes on Bryant just to even the score.

——————————————————-

On last Friday’s show, I gave out my rarely-distributed “5-star lock”, calling an Oakland win outright over Pittsburgh yesterday.

The Steelers are really bad, which we all love to see here in Baltimore.

Yes, I know, they beat the Ravens last Sunday.  I’m well aware.

But, Pittsburgh is just no freakin’ good.

As they showed on Sunday in Oakland.

You gotta love when those 5-star locks hit…

I don’t care who you are, but when Bobby Bowden asks a guy on live TV if his deceased father is “still coaching”, it’s just about the funniest thing you’ve even seen, particularly because poor old Bobby just innocently asks the question as if he’s really, really interested.  Here it is for you to watch.

    I can agree with you on the O’s franchise trying to resemble the winning one in Boston, but not the Sox winning the World Series. I can’t wait for them to lose & have to shave off those ridiculous looking beards !!!

    Hey how about those Deadskins coughing up a big lead. Hail to the
    whatevers!

  3. Jason Manelli Says:

    There’s nothing I like more than seeing the Steelers and the Cowboys lose on the same Sunday. Mighty fine indeed.

  4. CNC Orioles Fan Says:

    You’re not a bad guy rooting for the Redsox to win the Series. After all, I am too because they’re in the same division as the Orioles. So whoever is in the Series from AL East I’ll root them on, except those Pinstrippers from New York.

    I’m like everyeone else who roots for all teams including those who beat the Yankees.

    You’re only bad because you say cheering for the Redsox is like cheering for the Yanks. Pllease!

  5. The Armchair QB Says:

    The “fake spike” was legendary, but not unprecedented, which calls into question the penalty assessed against Suggs earlier this year when he tackled the Buffalo QB who, instead of taking a knee, was backing away from the center in “duck-like” fashion when he was “sacked”! Oakland played “not to lose” in the second half and would have lost if Suisham hadn’t missed two “chip shots”. Not liking our chances up in Cleveland this week as they ALWAYS play us tough, we ALWAYS struggle against “journeymen” QB’s and we ALWAYS struggle on the road! Other than that, I see no problems. LOL!

  6. CNC Redskin Fan Says:

    unitastoberry, how about them Ravens losing their all their games including to the hated Steelers. Flacco must love his new offense that he helped create with is new contract. BTW, how come the Ravens haven’t fired their OC yet like they did Cam Cameron after their loss to the REDSKINS last season while on their way to the Super Bowl?

    Hail to the REDSKINS!

  7. Eric Says:

    Hey CNC Redskin fan – Why don’t you fire your OC? You should after he completely abandoned the run in the second half of your meltdown against Denver. Don’t worry though. The off season will be here before you know it, so you idiots can celebrate another Super Bowl.

  8. CNC Redskin Fan Says:

    Eric, Redskins fans have been asking for Kyle’s firing ever since he came to the Redskins from Houston but you know it is the usual father-son thing. Might be an embarassment to dad if he has to fire his son.
