This has been an incredible year so far for my Cubbies! And it's continuing with the All Star game. :D They have 7 players on the NL roster.
Kosuke Fukudome, Alfonso Soriano, and Geovany Soto are starting. Kerry Wood (SQUEEEEEE!!!!!!!), Ryan Dempster, Aramis Ramirez, and Carlos Zambrano were chosen by players and managers.
I AM SO HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I actually have a reason to watch the All Star game this year. :D
*keeps fingers, eyes, toes, knees, and anything else crossable crossed that their good year continues after the All Star game*
Busy sports night in my house. Penn State played at 6 pm, the Cubs and Pirates came on at 7 pm, then the NASCAR race from Richmond started at 7:30 pm. We needed 3 tvs tonight! lol
To quote Meatloaf... tonight, 2 out of 3 ain't bad.
Penn State beat Notre Dame 31 - 10. Started off a little rocky, but PSU pulled it out! :D (Did you see my shiny new icon. *grins* Played around with some effects this time. hehehe)
Then my Cubbies beat my Dad's Pirates 5 - 1 and Zambrano got his 15th win. Weeeee!!!!!!! :D Didn't watch much of the game though because *gasp* my Dad actually left it on the Penn State game except at half time! Major win. lol
The NASCAR race did NOT end like I wanted it too though. :( My baby, Dale Jr. was running awesome till 6 laps to go... then his engine blew! :( *pouts* Now he's out of the chase for the championship. Waaahhhh!!!!
That's about all for me. :)
Penn State football's season kicked off with a bang. They won 34-19 over Akron. The first touchdown pass, a 42-yard pass, was just absolutely gorgeous!
In NASCAR, Kasey Kahne won both the Busch and Nextell races in California. He desperately needed the win Sunday night to make the Chase. He's not in the top 10 yet, but he's got one more race and only 30 points to make up now. And Dale Jr. came in seconds on Sunday's race. :)
Only bummer, my Cubbies lost both games. :( There's always next year. <---- every Cubs fan mantra *grins*
