D*** Yankees

The Minnesota Twins officially have a psychological problem with the Yankees. On this celebration of our Nations birth the Twins took a four game beating at the hands of the Yankees. The Yankees aren't even that good this year, Jeter, Rodriguez, Granderson, Texeira all are missing from the Bronx Bombers. Instead they field a team of rag tag players. Yet they still slug the heck out of the ball and seem to always beat the Twins.

 It wouldn't be so bad but no one but people in New York like the Yankees. Losing to them just leaves a bad taste in your mouth. In Boston they always talked about the curse of the Bambino and Boston over came that. I think it should just be the curse of the Yankees. Let's hope it doesn't take the Twins 100 years to overcome that curse.

I'm glad we only play them 6-7 times a year others the Twins might lose 162 games.

Let's hope July 5th is better than July 4th.

Dance Eve

It is the eve of the NCAA tournament. Actually it already started with the "first four" a media scam to get more teams into the tournament only to lose in the first round.

Anyway, I've picked my brackets. I am in five my track record is not very good but I have hope this year. Who are you picking to make it to the final four?

I would like to hear some of your choices.

Since I am doing five brackets it changes somewhat but here is a list of the teams I think have the best chance to make the final four.

New Mexico

Good Luck on your brackets.

And Then There Were Two

The NFL playoffs have moved to the final stages. The Superbowl will happen on February 3rd. It will be between the AFC champions Baltimore Ravens and the NFC champions San Francisco 49ers.

It will be an interesting match-up between the two teams who finished runners up in their conferences a year ago and now they find themselves motivated to win the Superbowl.

The Ravens are motivated by trying to win one more Championship for Ray Lewis who has announced his retirement. Once he made that announcement it lit a fire under the rest of the team to go on a mission to win the Superbowl.

The 49ers are motivated by a Quarterback change halfway through the season. A quarterback story that has captured the nation. A quarterback who ran for twice as much yardage against the Packers as Adrian Peterson did the week before.

Don't forget the match-up of brother head coaches. That is also a great story.

What is my prediction. San Francisco 35 Ravens 27

And Then There Were Four

Four teams left in the NFL.

I was sorely disappointed in the losses by Denver, how could they let that player get behind them like that. I was also disappointed in the loss by Seattle. They came back from 20 points down only to lose in the last 30 seconds. How could they not stop them, they have a good defense.

Some good games this weekend, and now there is only four teams remaining. In the AFC we have the Baltimore Ravens heading to Gillette stadium to play the New England Patriots. In the NFC it will be the San Francisco 49ers heading to Atlanta to play the Falcons.

Do the Ravens have the desire to win for Ray Lewis' last season?

Are the Brady led Patriots a force to be reckoned with?

Can Kaepernick have another huge came and the 9ers overcome the west to east travel jinx?

Is it finally time for Matty Ice to win one for the Falcons?

Who will it be between these four? Here is who I think will be playing in the Super Bowl.

The New England Patriots versus the San Francisco 49ers. With the Patriots winning the Super Bowl!!
