"This schedule sets up quite nicely. The Giants and Redskins will both play the Bears tough, but I think they other games will go the Bears' way."
That was what I said on Tuesday after the Bears' Monday night victory over the Packers. Granted, my overall thought was incorrect (as in the Bears lost to the Giants) but I did have a bad feeling about the game. The Bears on a short week, going to New York to play a defense that could definitely wreck their offensive line was bound to be trouble, but I didn't think it would lead to the murder of Jay Cutler. Well, let's move on to more important things.
The Giants win the West - The SF Giants were doing their best to make Bay Area fans sweat over the weekend. Matt Cain wasn't able to lock it down on Friday night and we all knew Barry Zito wasn't getting it done on Saturday, so that lead to the Dirty Sanchez himself pitching on Sunday. What a savage! He absolutely cemented himself as a big game pitcher on Sunday. It's going to be interesting to see what Lincecum, Cain and Sanchez will be able to do in a short series against the Braves. Bobby Cox, in his final season, should just follow suit with the rest of his early playoff exit Braves teams. I guess we'll find out later in the week.
Saturday - My lovely cat Cosmo decided to ruin my entire day. He seems to find it fun to wake me up at 6 or 7 am by stepping on my chest or putting his fur in my face. I have a VERY hard time getting back to sleep so I tend to wake up and start watching TV or finding something else that will help me kill time. Pretty much, it leads to me having a headache and being unproductive. This was the least fun paragraph I've ever written on this blog- I can only imagine that it was even worse to read.
Sunday - This was our 1 year anniversary! How time flies. Activities for the day included a couples massage at Mellow Me Out Spa in Sacramento, eating at Mikuni (delicious sushi), and eating the same flavor of cupcakes that we had at our wedding last year. It was a great day of low key celebration which was exactly what we needed (between shows, traveling to parties, and private jets to Reno we needed a break!) To Mrs. B., it's been a great year and I can't wait for what the future holds. You're the best!
As you can tell, there was not much going on this weekend to make a very interesting blog. I think I still might be in relaxation mode- who knows? I will say that Kenny Powers' entrance into the Mexican baseball stadium to "Real American" was definitely one of the funniest things ever on "Eastbound & Down." I love the fact that he didn't even have his glove during the entire entrance and had to ask for it once his charade was through. Great show.
I need to cause some trouble to have something to write about tomorrow...
