I’d like to take a moment to bask in my glory of sweet revenge:
Fred rubbed it in my face at the outset of the fantasy football season when his team exploded and took my humble squad to school. Well, thanks to Denver making a 1st down late in the game on 4th and 2, and then passing to Brandon Marshall on two consecutive plays, I was able to squeak one by Fred and maintain my position in the race for the playoffs.
This post I’m referring to is here.
Good luck because I assume I will be meeting you again in the playoffs.
So much going on indeed. That’s true for my life and the sports world right now. So without wasting any more of your time, I’ll jump right into it.
Red Sox win the World Series
First things first, I’m not a big baseball fan. But I do like to keep tabs on the season as it starts to wind down and actually mean something, and I check the scores throughout the playoffs. The Red Sox took 86 years to win their last World Series, and only 3 years to win this one.
The little I know about baseball, I have a problem with the playoff schedule MLB uses. They have a bunch of teams that are used to playing either every day, or every other day, and then throw in a ton of off-days during the playoffs. The Rockies were on an unbelievable win streak, 21 of 22 games or something like that, and then they had to wait 8 days to begin play in the World Series. 8 days! They hadn’t had anywhere close to that much time off since the season started. Boston meanwhile came off a series where their bats had just started to heat up, and made quick work of the Rockies in 4 straight games. I’m not saying Colorado would’ve had a shot even if they had been able to keep their momentum, but at least it might have been worth watching. I’m one of those ‘fans’ that didn’t watch a single game because I knew they never had a chance. The post season is simply FAR too long, and MLB has to do something about it. The Rockies are a young team and might get another shot in the next few years at going all the way, but alot of teams never see that second chance, and to take it from them because of a layoff is wrong.
Apparently all the speculation is confirmed.
Google will come out in mid-2008 with a mobile phone platform that incorporates a variety of Google online services and lets outside developers create applications, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday.
I like the fact that Google is coming right out and saying they are letting outside devs in from the get-go. Obviously a shot at Apple, but let’s face it: Apple set themselves up for that one.
When asked about the complex and competative world of mobile technology, Marissa Meyer made this brilliant statement.
“The mobile space is very complicated,” she said.
