The After a legendary 108 years of loser town, we have witnessed the most long awaited moment in sports history! After an EPIC comeback playing the Cleveland Indians (who haven’t won since 1948 – stop crying), the Cubbies have finally won the World Series of 2016!! Dye that river blue and let’s party our faces off!! That Game 7 was the knuckle biter of all ages. If you missed it, look it up on YouTube. It is worth the watch, even if you know the outcome. Congratulations, Cubs!! Now that Baseball Season is over, let’s move on to what we all are thinking about: Football. Let’s start with the NCAA. Once again and as usual, the Alabama Crimson Tide is on top, but they do have some tough competition. Michigan, Ohio State, Clemson, Washington and Louisville are fighting hard to claim the title. I don’t know about you, but my money is on the Clemson Tigers to finish what they started last year. Anybody up for a friendly wager? As far as the NFL, it looks like the Falcons are the team to beat. Point wise they are better than most, but not as good looking as the Patriots and the Cowboys. The Pats and the Boys both 7 and 1 (as of this writing), look great on paper, but our Georgia team is smoking right now. However, don’t get your pants in a wad as there are still some contenders out there. I was all about the Vikings for a second, but due to their last three losses, ugh. Can’t avoid that with a flaming pitchfork, can you Sam Bradford? Let’s see if the Oakland Raiders can claim an upset in this show. NASCAR is almost over (thank God) and as I write this Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards are already guaranteed for Homestead. After Phoenix, the top four remaining spots are up for grabs to anyone except Martin Truex, Jr., who has lost his ass this season. Anyhoo, we got a variety of other drivers ready to rip that Sprint Cup right out of the grasping hands of either Johnson or Edwards and drink that Moet right in front of them! I personally would like to see Joey Logano go the distance. It is my column and I can say and do as I please. Complain to the editor if you have better reasoning. The NBA is well on its way and that’s cool. No one really gets involved until later in the season. With the Cavalier’s winning historically last year, everyone is going to be gunning for them this year - specifically, the Warrior’s. Why not? There is a score to settle there. Only time will tell. In the interim, the Raptor’s are looking really good, as are the 76’ers and the only reason I say this is because I always root for the underdog and the 76’ers finally won a game after a 44 game losing streak. Hey, every team has to eventually get their moment. Right? Let’s give the NBA another month and see what we are dealing with. College Basketball is revving up and I am super excited!! It’s still waaaayyyy too early to assess the situation, but Michigan State is looking good. Even though they lost to Arizona, don’t cry. Arizona got lucky. I am not going to make any other predictions, but just know my favorite team will always and forever be Louisville. They have hookers and cocaine after practice. You really cannot top that. EVER! LOL!!! Moving along … I cannot write this article without mentioning the Breeder’s Cup. Our Derby and Preakness winner, California Chrome, ran his hooves off to sweep the board. One can only hope that he will continue his legacy and we can look forward to him being the Derby favorite next year or studding out at $200,000 a pop. Ah, a horse’s life! On a final note, the NHL is off and running. I am super not interested in this, but to those that are, the Canadians are running 12 -1 right now, with the Senators close, but not really at 9 - 5. Lightning and Red Wings are behind them. It’s still early so everyone calm down. Let’s see how the season rolls out and also see who can lose the most teeth over a hockey puck or opposing player gone awol. Now that’s a bet I’m willing to make!! By G.C.
