Yankees Swept

from Sixpack Speak …


Before tonight, the last time the Yankees were swept in the ALCS was on October 10th 1980.

Three weeks later Mississippi State beat then # 1 Alabama 6-3.

Sounds like a good omen to me, if you believe in things like that.  Or even if you don’t, It’s ok to think it’s possible.

  1. Maybe it’s just me, but aligning myself with any omen connected to a Yankee is just wrong on every level.
    Nuke, you ready for some football? How about pizza?

  2. yassir!

  3. Stay away from any contact with the Yanks. That’s a baaaad omen!!!!

    Work beckons so I hope my friends can have a excellent night with the Dawgs and Sooners. May they KICK SOME ARSE!!!!!

    pizza, yum yum!!

    Go Hawkeyes!!!

  4. Big showdown/hoedown in Norman next week. I hope the Gameday hoopla doesn’t distract the Sooners.

    Bulldogs are 7-0. When was the last time that happened?

    Lots of football left, but dangit, the season is already half over.

    • I was kinda hoping gameday would be in tuscalousa next weekend, but ND is a name draw, and it’s been a long time. Do us all a favor and dismember the poseurs. They got nuttin’.

      Oh, ’99, Jackie Sherrill’s team was 7-0, won the West division that year.

      • That’s right, Ol’Jackie. Did I ever mention my cousin bought his ranch in Texas? Deer all over that place and he doesn’t hunt. Gotta talk to that boy. His son is a freshman on the TAMU basketball team.

        Either site for gameday would have been a good one. At this point I would have preferred Tuscaloosa so as not to distract the OU players.

  5. HolaKyle never sleeps…after an OU victory.

  6. I was beginning to wonder last night if the Dawgs were going to wake up when I heard the HT score was 10-7. Sirius sat. radio is great and I got to listen to the 2nd half of the game after the Dawgs finally put in their teeth. No ? on the Sooners, they took care of business.
    Have the fire trucks ready cause both games this coming Sat. are going to be barn burners!!!

  7. That’s a million $ ?. I guess they hit a buzz saw. Hawkeyes will probably be weak for a couple of years until they get some good upperclassmen in the fold.
    Good luck this weekend.
