Sports N Shizzle
The Bears (38-6), Rockies (7-1), and the Blackhawks (3-o) all managed to eek out a victory today, Sunday, September 18, 2005.
As a matter of fact, these were all blowouts, especially the Bears game-raping of the Lions. After yesterday's Maryland-WVU debacle, this is a much needed breath of fresh air.
The Bears are 1-1, with a 45-15 point differential, and technically in 1st place in the NFC North.
The Blackhawks are 2-0 in the preseason with 4 points and an 8-4 goal differential. They are also in first place in their (preseason) standings.
The Rockies are 61-87 and somehow have yet to be eliminated from the playoff race. (The Padres can finish at worst 74-88, whereas the Rockies can go 75-87). These two teams play each other for the next four days, so it really is a do or die for the Rockies. I believe that 61-87 is the worst record in history for any team not eliminated from the postseason hunt.
The UMD football team is not bowl-bound.
And the New England/Boston F*cking Patriots lost! Boo-yah!
