    Before tonight's Astros/Dodgers game 7, it was those two particular games in which I was the most bat **** nervous the day of the game/as they were played, in regards of all the potential outcomes, specifically the legacy implications of those outcomes. In a small way, it helps a bit with the nerves today, but nevertheless this game 7 is so, so different- first World Series game 7 of L.A. Dodger history (that really is a remarkable thing to ponder, to experience); the Dodgers obviously not being defending champions in this Series as those Lakers were; the ongoing TV impasse that's affected the regular season since '14; baseball/the Dodgers being my #1 hobby.




    Regardless of tonight's outcome, I'm just glad they made this far at least once in my life... the final MLB game of a calendar year, and the Dodgers are in it! Wow.

    I've survived two World Series Game Sevens.

    I don't think I'll ever get over either of them.

    Glad you take the approach that you're glad they're there. But I can tell you, if they lose (especially in heartbreaking fashion) it will eat at the sports part of your brain for the rest of your life.

    Much appreciate your perspective, Inty. To hopefully a better baseball ending for Cleveland one day.

    Rest In Peace, Dick Enberg. Legend of calling so many sports, namely football/tennis/baseball.

    Lost one of the greats tonight.

    Baseball: progress made towards Charlotte getting an MLB team
    Basketball: Hornets to stop giving games away in the fourth quarter and make the playoffs. Tarheels to win the National Championships again. Joel Berry to the Hornets in the NBA draft.
    Hockey: ‘Canes to the Stanley Cup final. OK, long shot, I’ll settle for their standing in the Metropolitican Division to go up.
    Football: Panthers to beat the Saints next weekend. A guarantee that the Panthers will stay in Charlotte. Cam Newton to get a handle on his ego. Marty Hurney to stop being annoying. Tarheels to find a competent replacement for Mitch Trubisky and win more games next fall.

    Basketball: I got to see a double rainbow in the last Dubs vs. Cavs game, as both Steph Curry and David West came up with dunks during the game. Curry's teammates teased him about it in saying it was like seeing a unicorn.

    Baseball: I'm contemplating on whether or not to take a day off from work to attend the A's Opening Day game. I wanted tickets behind the visitors' dugout to be on the first base side, but that section is pretty much sold out.

    Hockey: I'll jump on the Sharks bandwagon when the playoff come around.

    Football: I just checked out two mock drafts to see who the 49ers might draft, and one has the 9ers drafting a CB another an Offensive Lineman. Both are needs for the 49ers, but with like $100 million to play with in the offseason, I'm more interested in seeing what free agents the team will sign. And the Raiders are looking to return to the playoffs with Gruden.

    I'll be rooting for the Jags to beat the Pats and the Vikings to beat the Eagles, especially if the Pats win because the Vikings might have the defense to stop TB12.

    Baseball: Cubs still have enough talent to win the World Series so I'd like to see it happen again.

    Basketball: The Bulls to get a good draft pick and draft someone that works out.

    Hockey: I'll just be happy if the Blackhawks make the playoffs.

    Football: Ryan Tannehill to come back healthy but also for the Dolphins to draft a QB.

    sorry if this sounds depressing

    soccer - don't be a **** and sell hazard.

    college fb - ut wins at least 1 sec game

    pro fb - mahomes turns out okay

    baseball - win the series, sign bryce harper and 20 great pitchers. take away all of my pain caused by every other sport.

    f1 - no merc wins, all season. or next season. i've seen enough to last a lifetime.

    cbb - duke loses every remaining game, and loses to wofford in the first round of the tournament.

    wimbledon for nole, augusta for mickelson
