Welcome to a new week, a new month and a fresh batch of conversation staters!
It was a rough weekend for Seattle area teams. The Huskies, Seahawks, Sounders and we’ll through in the Cougars all lost – badly. There’s really not much to say today. Your best bet is to ask “what went wrong?” to just about any sports fan in Washington State.
MLB – The San Francisco Giants are one win away from clinching the World Series Title – but it doesn’t seem like anyone’s watching. Saturday’s Game 3 drew the second lowest TV rating ever for a World Series Game. Tonight Cliff Lee takes the mound for Texas, as the Rangers try to stay alive. But the game will be on opposite Monday Night Football. What are you going to watch? Is this MLB’s fault for drawing out the playoffs into November?
NFL – If it’s not one thing its another with Brett Favre. He made his 292nd consecutive start keeping the streak intact, but was knocked out of the game after a hit to his chin required stitches. The drama starts all over again. If it’s determined he suffered a concussion on the play, he must get doctors clearance before playing next week. How much do you pay attention to the Favre drama? How important is another start for his streak?
NBA – Remember a few months back when LeBron James controlled an hour special to inform the world of his decision to leave Cleveland and sign with Miami? He’s now decided that maybe he should have gone about that in a different way. You think? Do you think it helps James to make those comments now after the damage to his image is already done?
PGA – The golf world has a new Number 1 for the first time since 2005. Tiger Woods held the top spot for a record 281 straight weeks. That streak came to an end Sunday as Lee Westwood was named the world’s top golfer. Woods says he’s not surprised, but are you? How long will he stay out of the top spot?
