Bally Minute # 4

Well it’s college football bowl time.  This is the best time of the year, except for the NCAA basketball playoffs.  So I decided to make a bowl pick ’em league on ESPN (No money involved) and I thought it would be fun to get all my buddies and some guys from the team to join so I could show them how to dominate in picks.  So let’s see, I invited Ryan Zimmerman, Austin Kearns, Aaron Boone, and Nick Johnson and the only one of those 4 that got in was Ryan.  So Ryan’s the man and the rest of you guys are bums.  So anyway, on to the picks, I’ll just say this starting out: I am doing horrible.  I can’t seem to make the right picks, or it’s just that the teams I’m picking suck and lose when they are supposed to win.  So right now I’m looking like an idiot but don’t worry, I will pick it up and when I win this league then I will be writing a blog about it.  

Some of the games I am looking forward to and my guess on the out come are….

1. Oklahoma State vs Oregon– Remember I am and always will be Pac 10 biased. Oregon wins 35-21
2. Georiga vs Michigan State I really think this is going to be a great game and I’m going with Michigan State 21-14
3. Ohio State vs Texas I mean my fiance goes to Ohio State but what can I say, Texas is going to crush  35-14

4. Florida vs Oklahoma– At first I really thought that Oklahoma was going to win but now I changed my mind and I’m going with Florida 21-20
5. Now on to the main event: USC vs Penn State– and all of you guys know this already that I love USC so I’m going with the Trojans 42-10
  Feel free to copy these picks 
  So other than that, all that I have been doing is just getting ready for spring training.  I recently saw that they are doing the annual Caravan Fan Fest thing up in DC, I was kind of hoping I was going to be a part of this event because I would really like to give back to the community with my teammates and I really think it would be a blast.  So we will see in the next couple weeks if I will be a part of this and I will definitely let everyone here know where I will be and what I will be doing.  Thank you all for all the feedback, it is really helping me out.  I think that I am going to have a Q&A session again in a week or so and I was thinking about doing some sort of contest but I needed some help from you guys, so let me know what you guys would want to do and maybe I could give away some game used stuff as prizes. Once again, thank you all and talk to you soon.

Weekend fun

Hello Everyone.

Well,itsbeenabout a week since my last post and just wanted to write about some of the things that havehappened. Well,first off this last weekend I went to the Ohio State VS Penn State game at the Horseshoe in Columbus,man was this a crazy game. The day started at about 10 AM where Me My Fiance and her friend Danielle and her boyfriend Ross started to get ready for the game,( which started at 8 PM) So we were in for a very long day to say the least. So after we all got ready we went over to a friends house for a little BBQ till the game started. By the way there is nothing better then to hangout with your friends while watching some sports and eating some nice BBQ foods.
At about 5:45 we started to head closer to the field to meet up with some other friends. Let me tell you one thing that you might not know already,Ohio State has very good fans,they stick up for there teams at any cost they would fight for them and I know thats true causeIhave seen it. This is also coming from a USC ( Southern California ) fan,yes I know what you are thinking Bally’s a bandwagon fan well your wrong. I grew up a huge USC fan because my best friend growing up Troy Fleck had a grandfather who was the head coach soIwas able to go to a bunch of games with his family and let me tell you they were horrible at the time. So anyway back to Ohio State,walking the streets getting to the game was very fun because surprisingly there was a bunch of Penn State fans. So every house was yelling O-H-I-O as the Penn State fans walked by dancing totheirschool song so it was an event just walking to the stadium.
So once we finally got to the stadium we were about ready for the game to start,watched the band come out and then the players come out. The game started and was close right out of the gates both of the teams played really well,this was probably the best football gameIhave ever been to. It came down to the wire and Penn State ended up winning 13-6. I really wanted Ohio State to win so that USC could get higher in the rankings but oh well. So all and all this weekend was a lot of fun and im sure ill have a bunch more stories this weekend because we are going up to Toledo Ohio to visit my Fiances Brother,andof courseits Halloween,I am going to be a Lumberjack so it should be fun.
