The Other Side of the Pillow

A few thoughts I was thinking about when I was tossing and turning last night.....

....why I gave up the tickets to see the Orioles and Blue Jays today. Turns out, I could have seen two. Or at least one and a half.

....if the FanBlog had SI Cover like powers. Josh Vittek went 0-for-4 with 3 K's last night. Of course, he did call the shutout for the Royals from behind the plate.

....if this would be the year, where the Mount actually won a first round NCAA tournament game (ok maybe that was after I fell asleep). But the reports continue to be good. Apparently the returning group is working very hard, and there could be a budding superstar or two in the mix. The Mount seemed to have a very solid eight man rotation at the end of the season last year, and they really only lose one from that. Both freshman are expected to be ready, and there might be another player or two ready to go this fall.

....if what we're hearing about Brandon Gilbeaux is really true? Obviously, the returning starting Defensive End is off the team at Syracuse right now. We had heard he might be able to return. Now we're hearing, he's at least checking his options out at Delaware State. I was hoping he'd be back on the hill at some point. But the word makes it seem like less than a coin flips chance of that happening at the moment.

....if I utilize TiVo properly. How many college football games can I watch this year? I went with 105 before the postseason. They might be stretching it.

....if NBC really had a plan for the online content of its Olympic Coverage. Less than 2 weeks away from the first competition, and the plan has still not been publically released. We're all for cutting it close, but with this size of undertaking, we now have our doubts to how smoothly the whole process will be.

....if the Astros gained any ground since the acquisition of Randy Wolf?

    Drop a hint on the "budding superstar" and "another player or two ready to go this fall" lines for your loyal Mount readers.....

  2. As a fan I think you can be excited about everyone wearing the blue and white.

    Let's just say that this team could go 10-11 deep when it is all said and done.

    Pierre Brown will be much improved. Tayvon Jackson just needs to get the opportunity to play. The two redshirts, can score in the low post. It's a good "problem" to have.
