Will Grier - Steve Spurrier - Post Season Baseball

Tuesday==>OK, my loyal and faithful readers and followers, your favorite Sunshine State blogger will address the two major sports issues directly ... beginning with ...

The one year suspension of Gator red-shirt freshman QB Will Grier for testing positive for Performance Enhancing Drugs (PED).

Billi Pod says==>You are a stupid fucking dickwad and you have disgraced yourself, your teammates, your college and the State of Florida.

Your limp response that you didn’t know the over-the-counter supplement contained a PED is the equivalent of the lame “my dog ate my homework” excuse.

Thank God the Gators have Treon Harris.

The next issue is the out-of-the-blue announcement yesterday that South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier was retiring “immediately.”


Billi Pod says==>this just doesn’t pass the smell test. The Ole Ball Coach retiring in the middle of the season, without any warning? No fucking way.

Either he was faced with the choice of “retire or be fired,” or ... there is a serious health issue involved (or perhaps something else).

Hopefully, the issue(s) will be clarified soon.

OK ... now ... moving on ... to more sports, for you Marty ...

This is what went down yesterday in the baseball post-season ... and ... yes ... Billi Pod watched all four games ... 

1:00pm==>ALDS #4 - Royals/Astros, from Texas, won by the Royals 9-6, on a 5-run 7th inning. The series is tied 2-2.

The deciding 5th game will be in Kansas on Wednesday night.

4:00pm==>ALDS #4 - Blue Jays/Rangers, from Texas, won by the Blue Jays 8-4 on the long-ball and clutch pitching from R.A. Dickey and David Price, in relief. The series is tied 2-2.

Game 5 will be Wednesday in Toronto.

6:00pm==>NLDS #3 - Cardinals/Cubs, from Chicago, won by the Cubs 8-6 on 6 HRs, a major-league record for a playoff game. Chicago leads the series 2-1.

The next game will be this afternoon at 4:37pm, in St. Louis, carried on TBS.

On the mound for the Cardinals will be John Lackey (13-10) vs. Jason Hammel (10-7) for the Cubs.

8:30pm==>NLDS #3 - Dodgers/Mets, from New York, won by the Mets 13-7. The Dodgers jumped off to a 3-run lead in the top of the second but the Mets answered with 4 runs in the bottom of the inning and never trailed again. The Mets lead the series 2-1.

Tensions were very high at the beginning of the game due to the Utley/Tejada issue, but nothing occurred during the game. Utley was present but did not play. He is appealing his 2-game suspension.

The next game is at 8:00pm tonight in New York, carried on TBS.

On the mound for the Dodgers (1-2) will be Clayton Kershaw (16-7) on 3 days rest vs. rookie Steven Matz (4-0) for the Mets (2-1).

Moving on some more ...

My plans for the afternoon and evening will be to remain in the cool and comfortable confines of my Winter Park apartment to watch the Cardinals/Cubs game and then the Dodgers/Mets game. 

Your favorite blogger will be pulling for the Cubs and then the Dodgers.

Nope ... not gonna waste my time with the Democratic Debate at 8:30pm tonight, carried on CNN.

OK, time to post this and then work on my errands and chores to-do list and continue ...



Yesterday’s mileage==>3.05 miles (or, 6,675 steps)

Total mileage for 2015==>1,153.14 miles (average 4.05 miles per day)
