Football has officially started and we all know that means that the sporting world outside of football doesn’t really exist. At least not until after the Super Bowl.
I had some hope of UCLA being sneakily good this year but all hopes went out the window when they lost to Cincinnati at home in the opener. A road contest at Oklahoma this weekend will not be pretty. I guess I will pin my hopes on Oregon or Stanford because I am not rooting for that other LA school and Washington already lost to Auburn so they are done.
The NFL sucks, but I still don’t hate it as much as these so called “Make America Great Again” excuses for human beings. Without getting too much in to politics, I really respect Nike for what they have done for Colin Kaepernick and I really hope to see him continue to be a steady role model for many at risk youth. That’s all for football. I’m already in NBA mode.
We are officially 41 days from the start of the NBA season and for the first time in about 6 years I have some faith in the Lakers. I really am tired of all the Lebron jokes at this point and I am still coming to terms with his being on the Lakers, but I really do think that this team has a lot of potential. They are young and explosive at almost every position and then they brought in the best player on the planet. Last I checked Lebron makes his teammates into title contending talent. And with this group of kids who clearly want nothing more than to win, I expect a really solid year from them. My predictions for the season will come later on, but I have my eyes set on a few major accomplishments this season.
Golf’s a sport…. Isn’t that cool?
On the beer front. It’s my favorite time of year for beer as all the Oktoberfest styles start coming out and I realize once again that a well done Marzen may just be my favorite beer style. Malt matters most in these styles and somehow I forget that I love malty beverages until fall comes back around. OH well. Ein Prosit!!
