AT&T Park

Filed under Sports

I got to go see the San Francisco Giants play the Los Angeles Dodgers last weekend at AT&T Park. Tickets were $32 a seat.

I did learn one thing...San Francisco *really* doesn't like Los Angeles and vice-versa (baseball or otherwise).

AT&T Park has the bay as a backdrop...very cool! The fog rolled in during the game. You could see it swirl over the top of the stands as it traveled by. Here are some pics from the game.

Court Wars - Revenge of the Dirk

Filed under Funny, Mavericks, Sports

They made this video for round 3 of the playoffs last year. I saw it again last night at the Suns game. Dirk made the last shot of the game to win 101-99.

Best Sports Week Ever

Filed under Sports

Wow! It can't get much better than this!

All of my teams are kicking arse!

First, my Aggies beat t.u. 12-7 for the first time in six years. We beat t.u. at home. We ran for 244 yards against the nation's best run defense that averaged only 42 yards/game. We held t.u. to a single score. We stopped t.u. on fourth and goal. We knocked t.u. out of the Big 12 championship. We intercepted t.u. 4 times. We knocked t.u.'s QB out of the game. The latest AP poll has A&M at #22 and t.u. dropping to #17. A&M finishes the season at 9-3, the same as t.u.

Next up...the Dallas Mavericks. After an 8 game losing streak dating back to the NBA Finals, the Mavs are now on a 9 game winning streak, the best in the NBA. The Mavs beat our biggest rivals, the San Antonio Spurs 95-92 to even the series to 1-1. The Mavs are currently 1.5 games behind the Spurs for the Southwest division lead.

How 'bout them Cowboys? I went to the Cowboys/Colts game where Dallas ruined the Colts perfect season, 21-14. The Cowboys then beat Tampa Bay 38-10 on Thanksgiving with 5 TD passes by new Dallas QB Tony Romo, tying a Cowboys record. After a shaky start, the switch at QB has been huge for Dallas. Not only is Dallas winning, but the rest of our conference is falling apart...the Giants (our next victim) lost 3 in a row and the Eagles have lost their last two, placing Dallas with a 1 game lead over the Giants in the NFC East.

And finally, my Aggie basketball team is unbelievable. They are 5-0 currently and ranked #11 in the week 3 AP top 25. I don't *ever* remember A&M being ranked in a top 25 poll. With 5 of the teams above them losing, there is a good chance A&M will move up again in the polls.

This is fun!

Being an Aggie

Filed under Sports

There are two truisms when it comes to being an Aggie...you always pull for A&M and you ALWAYS pull for whomever is playing t.u.
I wanted USC to beat t.u. but the t-sips got lucky and won the national championship in football. Thank goodness LSU stepped up and knocked t.u. out of the NCAA basketball tournament this weekend.
It may be hard to understand why a Texas school would not want another Texas school to do well at the national level. This video may help...
