Monday Madness: Sports problems and my band

Well, not a lot of madness but plenty of unrequited sports anger.

First, USC loses to Stanford. Granted, Stanford is a far better team this year and was really supposed to destroy the Trojans according to most pundits. But the men of Troy hung tough and had the game won, until the Defense decided to stop playing and Stanford drove down the field to kick a last second Field Goal.

My anger subsided after I attended my Best Friend's 90's-themed birthday party that evening and the Kings beat Vancouver in a shootout (hockey).

As far as the party goes, I was dressed basically how I did in High School: Frosted tips, spiky hair, Red Quiksilver t-shirt, baggy corduroy pants and flip-flops. Quite a blast from the past. =)

On Sunday, I played in a softball game in the early afternoon (I went 3 for 4 with 2 doubles and scored 3 times) and got home just in time to watch the Chargers lose to the Raiders. I really need to start rooting for new teams. Patriots? Maybe the Bengals. I like them anyways. Oh well.

As far as the Chargers go, there is no excuse. That coaching staff is terrible. Sure they are decent at the X's and O's, but there is an element of being able to pump your team up, and they just don't do that. The Chargers come out flat every road game, signs of a deep problem. Tom Cable (coach of the raiders) may be only a step-up from early cavemen intellectually, but he pumps his team up and has them ready to play, unlike Norv Turner, who probably has the Chargers doing a team tea-time before each game.

Anyways, enough anger. Thanks to a person who attended my cover band's last show, I have a video (not a great one) to show you all. It's our 48th song of the night (out of 50) and we're a bit tired, but I think it sounds decent.

The song is "Yellow Ledbetter" by Pearl Jam. Enjoy.

Honey the bengsals lost too and they arent doing much better this year. I would say go for the Patriots. At least they have won superbowl titles recently and are always in the running...
