September is the greatest month

I love september. Best month of the year. You have the start of College Football season. You have the start of the NFL season. Kids are back in school. It starts to cool off, not as hot. Labor Day. Blue's Birthday. Only 30 days. Yom Kippur. Ramaadaan. Blue's birthday. Football. Leaves changing color...it's the best month.

August is the worse, can't think of one good thing about that shitty month.

So with a month left to play in beisbol, looks like the Reds have pretty much clinched the NL Central. Bravos are in great shape, same with the Padres. That leaves the Wild Card. I don't give a shit about the AL.

In the "year of the pitcher" bunch of guys have ERAs under 3.00, at the same time, there's 3 guys in the NL with a legit shot at the triple crown. Votto should be the MVP, redonk numbers for a team with the best record in the NL. Pujols again put up great numbers, but shitty cardinal team, and apathy because he always wins work against him. And then there's my man-crush Cargo. Dude is just the best baseball player alive...period. Reminds me of when I used to crush on Junior. He's leading the NL it batting avg. 5th in HRs and 3rd in RsBI. Take that Matt Holliday. Monday night Cargo shattered his bat and still hit it over the RF's head for a triple to win the game. He rarely gets cheated, almost every ball he hits is hard. Guy plays defense lake a banshee running into walls. I remember when he first got called up with the A's (i picked him up in Fantasy) because he came up right after Jay Bruce, and the peeps were saying he'd be just as good. Then he hit like .209 and everyone hated him...a few months later he was traded to the Rockies (or maybe a season later, can't misremember). Lots of potential when he started with the Rockies, but was hitting in that .200 range in May/June last year and they sent him down to AAA. He got called back up, and hit like .600 in the playoffs and almost singlehandedly beat the phillies (but stupid huston street kilt them) So in the course of basically a year, he's gone from being a huge disappointment to Superstar. He even has his own Taco Bell commercial locally.

So I'm going to enjoy September and watch the Rockies struggle to try and catchup in the Wild Card, but continue to be amazed by Cargo. I'm going to watch some NFL. And by this time next week, i'll know whether or not Boise State's season is ruined or if they've got a legit shot at making a run.

My birthday.

And the NL wild card is easy - the Phillies unless they catch the Braves, then it's the Braves.

it's not winter

BLUE said...

"it's not winter"

too damn hot

every month has a holiday or something cool about it except for stupid August...fuck august

also because it's named after a roman emperor

Meiz's Sugar Daddy said...

Really how hot does it get on CO? That's like me complaining about the cold down here during the winter months.

BLUE said...

month of August it was in the mid to high 90's every day....too hot

BLUE said...

I get to complain about hot because it's not supposed to be hot here.

If you live in AZ stfu about hot, you knew what you were getting yourself into

BLUE said...

just like I won't bitch about cold, or snow, or shitty basketball/baseball teams...I knew what I was getting myself into

Meiz's Sugar Daddy said...

what's the humidity like there?

mid 90's would be glorious with no humidity

Meiz's Sugar Daddy said...

they can bitch about the heat because that's real heat. Just like you can bitch about the cold because that's real cold. the stfu comes into play if i were to bitch about the cold when its in the 40's for example.

Meiz's Sugar Daddy said...

as far as fantasy goes, I'm sorry but I don't think I'll be able; cmkod's dad was just given about 1.5 months to live; between all the family coming in from out of town and then being named as executor of his estate, it's going to be an insanely busy time ahead.

Can you maybe move the Y! draft up a couple hours so it'll be done when the other draft starts? Please &; thank you

i'm not the yahoo! fnfl commissioner, but i'll give it a shot anyway.

Eh, kind of. It's nice that I can go and hang out with my friends and not have to deal with that. Sucks if I erve* want to do a family camping thing in the future

Keef said...

She might like it if we had a camper or rv or something. So basically not camping. Got it

Meiz's Sugar Daddy said...

its something

Keef said...

when we went it was cold as fuck at night. Like, below freezing. And my air mattress leaked so she had to sleep on the ground and hated that.

sucks for Minni that they are splitting up Gophers/Badgers; Gophs really only have two actual rivalries IMO, IA and WI

kod said...

Happy to be in with Iowa, Michigan and Nebraska though

Woe said...

"sucks for Minni that they are splitting up Gophers/Badgers; Gophs really only have two actual rivalries IMO, IA and WI"


Gophers/Badgers is a "guaranteed rivalry", so they'll still play every year.

But yeah, the division alignment is fucking stupid.

kod said...

"Gophers/Badgers is a "guaranteed rivalry", so they'll still play every year."


yeah? suite.

Woe said...

That's crap.

bigten is all fucked up

Keef said...

"Gophers/Badgers is a "guaranteed rivalry""

Do they have a trophy?

ns

Keef said...

is that paul bunyan's axe?

kod said...

not that it would make any sense to do this, but if I had to pick 5 teams to go with Minni, just based on what I perceive their biggest rivals to be, it would be:

Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, Nebraska, and Northwestern,

-WI and IA based on historic rivalries, Michigan and NW based on the quality and excitement of games played over the past 10 years, and Nebraksa because I think Minni/Nebraska will evolve into a great rivalry for both schools.

kod said...

is that paul bunyan's axe?


yup

kod said...

and Floyd of Rosedale (pig statue) is the trophy in IA/Minni

kod said...

I think there are others...but those are the big 2 for Minni

Keef said...

yeah, can't have all rivalry teams in the same division.

tem said...

if you split them up then they might get to play each other twice.

once in the reg. season and then again the the big 10 title game.

The Rev said...

I expect this place to pick up more after Labor Day.

Do not let me down.

JFreak said...

"But yeah, the division alignment is fucking stupid."

Why?

By any measure the best 6 in the conference are Ohio State, Michigan, Nebraska, Penn State, Wisconsin, and Iowa.

And they're split 3-3.

Not sure they could have done any better. It's sort of geographical and sort of competitive based. I think it works for now, and I heard they're going to 9 conference games in 2015, so some rivalries that are lost will be renewed.

JFreak said...

"I expect this place to pick up more after Labor Day.

Do not let me down."

Pull your weight.

JFreak said...

Only three trophy games are lost: Iowa-Wisconsin, Minnesota-Penn State and Penn State-Michigan State.

None of those are that exciting or well established.

“I want Discovery Communications to broadcast on their channels to the world their new program lineup and I want proof they are doing so. I want the new shows started by asking the public for inventive solution ideas to save the planet and the remaining wildlife on it,” the alleged manifesto reads, adding:
“Nothing is more important than saving ... the Lions, Tigers, Giraffes, Elephants, Froggies, Turtles, Apes, Raccoons, Beetles, Ants, Sharks, Bears, and, of course, the Squirrels. The humans? The planet does not need humans.”
