THIS IS A BLOG I’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT DOING FOR A COUPLE YEARS NOW. THIS (AND FUTURE BLOGS) WILL BE JUST A COMPILATION OF MY RANDOM THOUGHTS (HENCE THE TITLE) ON THE SPORTS WORLD. SO HERE GOES:

 

THINGS ARE LOOKING REALLY GOOD AT MICHIGAN STATE RIGHT NOW. THE FOOTBALL TEAM IS ONE WIN AWAY FROM THE BIG TEN TITLE GAME, THE MEN’S BASKETBALL TEAM IS OFF TO A GOOD START AS WELL, CULMINATING IN A NUMBER 1 RANKING THIS WEEK. AND THE MEN’S SOCCER TEAM IS IN THE NCAA TOURNAMENT AS WELL. ENJOY IT NOW SPARTAN FANS, THESE GOOD TIMES DON’T LAST FOREVER.

 

IF BASEBALL SUPER AGENT SCOTT BORAS REALLY HAD MAX SCHERZER’S BEST FINANCIAL INTERESTS AT HEART, HE WOULD HAVE MAX SIGN AN EXTENSION WITH THE DETROIT TIGERS ASAP. MAX’S MARKETABILITY WILL PROBABLY BE NEVER AS HIGH AS IT IS RIGHT NOW. REMEMBER, THE AL CY YOUNG AWARD WINNER CAN BECOME A FREE AGENT AFTER NEXT SEASON.

 

I’M NOT SURE HOW GOOD THE DETROIT PISTONS ARE GOING TO BE THIS SEASON. BUT I KNOW THIS FOR SURE, THEY ARE CLEARLY BETTER THAN THEY HAVE BEEN THE LAST TWO YEARS. ANDRE DRUMMOND IS A FUTURE ALL-STAR, BARRING INJURIES. THE GUARD SITUATION IS STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS, BUT I HAVE FAITH THAT WILL IMPROVE. THEY CAN MAKE THE PLAYOFFS IN THE EAST WITH ONLY MIAMI, INDIANA, AND CHICAGO AS DEFINITE PLAYOFF TEAMS.

 

ONE QUESTION ABOUT THE RED WINGS…WHEN WILL THEY WIN THEIR NEXT HOME GAME??

 

THE DETROIT LIONS THANKSGIVING DAY GAME AGAINST GREEN BAY LOOMS LARGER AND LARGER BY THE DAY. IF OUR GRIDIRON HEROES WIN THAT GAME, THEY’LL HAVE ALL THE TIEBREAKERS IN THE NFC NORTH. BUT SUNDAY’S LOSS TO PITTSBURGH WAS UNACCEPTABLE.

 

AS FOR MICHIGAN, YOU CAN QUESTION THE HEART OF SOME PLAYERS ON THEIR FOOTBALL TEAM. BUT YOU CAN’T QUESTION THE HEART OF QUARTERBACK DEVIN GARDNER. HE’S BEEN GETTING CRUSHED BY OPPOSING DEFENSES ALL SEASON LONG AND REMARKABLY, HE’S STILL STANDING. HIS TOUGHNESS IMPRESSES ME…A LOT.

 

THAT’S ALL FOR NOW…THIS IS BROCK PALMBOS, SIGNING OFF.
