Hair of the Dog, Friday, Ocotber 24, 2008.

Sorry for the boring Thursday. I was traveling for work and never found my way to a computer. It was a particularly brutal trip because I sprained my ankle playing kickball on Wednesday night. That's probably even more embarrassing than when I sprained my ankle exactly one year previous while playing Frisbee. The evening wasn't a total loss though. My team won our game. We had been tied for first in the league with the team we were playing. It was a thriller. And I scored another big athletic victory prior to the game when I maxed out in back squat, dead lift and press. I got personal bests in all three. Score! Although since I can barely stand on this ankle, I doubt I'll be throwing 2X body weight on the bar again any time soon.

Onto some real sports.

Best World Series ever? Ehh, probably not. But so far it's shaking up to be an exciting one. The Rays tied the Phillies with a 4-2 win last night. The Rays jumped out to an early lead and Shields threw 5.2 scoreless innings. It's pretty cool having teams you want to root for, instead of teams you want to root against. I hope it goes to seven games and the Phillies pull it out with a Geoff Jenkins pinch hit dinger.

Some Cubs website is reporting that the Brewers offered the manager position to Bob Brenly. I haven't seen this reported anywhere else, and I sure hope it's not true. I'd rather have Macha or Randolph.

The Brewers website has templates for carving Brewer pumpkins. I will be carving the old logo this evening.

Tom H. is reporting that the Yankees are interested in Cameron, should the Brewers be stupid enough to not re-sign him. I wonder how untucking would go over in NY?

The Bucks got their asses kicked by the T-Wolves again, falling to 1-6 in the preseason. Bogut didn't play and Gadzuric started in his place, but they still looked like garbage in the second half.

That's all I got for now. I'm off to Rest-Ice-Compression-Elevation.

God I hope that Goat-riders website is full of crap.

Brenly interviewed yesterday. There's no way he got an offer already.

Yeah, I really doubt that rumor is legit too. I'm not really familiar with that website and the guy doesn't strike me as very credible. Or smart.

He spelled "street" with an "a."
