Wow what a college day Saturday yesterday.
I would say the Irish are back.
Everett Golson threw for 177 yards and plunged in for the decisive 1-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, Te’o bolstered his Heisman Trophy candidacy with a late interception and Notre Dame beat No. 8 Oklahoma 30-13 on Saturday night to remain undefeated.
Texas A&M certainly served notice that it could play in the SEC with the big boys by beating Auburn pretty easily 63-21. This should propel A&M to possibly the Top 10 in the rankings and Coach’s Poll.
And how many of you are like me, and surprised that James Harden of the Oklahoma City Thunder would be traded to the Houston Rockets?
Unable to work out an extension with James Harden, the Oklahoma City Thunder traded the Sixth Man of the Year to the Houston Rockets on Saturday night, breaking up the young core of the Western Conference champions.
The Thunder acquired guards Kevin Martin and Jeremy Lamb, two first-round picks and a second-round pick in the surprising deal that was completed Saturday night. Oklahoma City also sent center Cole Aldrich and forwards Daequan Cook and Lazar Hayward to Houston.
Wednesday’s deadline to extend Harden or allow him to become a restricted free agent next July had been hanging over the Thunder from the moment they reported to training camp, but sources told ESPN.com’s Marc Stein late Saturday the Rockets intend to sign the swingman to the max contract extension he was seeking before Wednesday’s midnight deadline.
The Thunder offered Harden $55.5 million over four years — $4.5 million less than the max deal Harden coveted and will get from the Rockets, sources told ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard.
Giants blank Tigers for 3-0 World Series lead
I hate it when I’m right.
Back on October 13, I told you that I believed a team from the National League would win the World Series.
That was when I knew the Cardinals and Giants would be in the World Series. I knew that both of those teams were like monsters, and you just couldn’t kill them from watching them in successive years in 2010 and 2011 in the World Series beating the Rangers. I knew that the Tigers were a great team, but just couldn’t match the pitching lineups from either of those two teams, so it was pretty easy for me to realize that the World Series winner for 2012 would come from the National League. One complaint that I have about the Giants is, they harboured 1 Melky Cabrera who was found to be a cheater and used PEDS. He was suspended for some 50 games, but nothing was done about the Giants, which doesn’t seem fair to me. Seems to me the Giants should have been docked about 10 games as punishment for them, but they are on the verge of winning it all.
If you are an entertainer, you should probably keep your political opinions to yourself.
If you are a political candidate, you should probably know your stuff before casting stones.
Some things, you just have to read for yourself.
Thanks for reading the blog, have a great Sunday. Thanks to Chicken Express for the Veteran’s Discount yesterday.
Have a great day!
