Good morning everyone. Better late than never, right? We're already a few days into the Major League Baseball season, but here are my predictions for 2013, and I cannot stress this enough: for entertainment purposes ONLY (unless I happen to be right of course)... ;)
American League Division Winners: Boston, Detroit, Los Angeles
American League Wild Cards: Tampa Bay, Texas
National League Division Winners: Washington, St. Louis, Los Angeles
National League Division Winners: Philadelphia, San Francisco
World Series - Los Angeles Angels over Los Angeles Dodgers
Some questionable picks above maybe, but remember who told you that the Lakers would struggle this year when Las Vegas had them at 8 to 5 to win it all (and forget my baseball predictions from last year)... ;)
Now a little section for you sponsored by my coworkers. We finally had some rain here yesterday and last night in San Marcos, America. I slept through the daytime rain, but was brought up to speed by my friend Nick: "It was raining hard Coach. I thought it might pierce my skin..." :) This is brought to you by the same Nick who triggered the idea for the very popular 'I Remember The First Time' blog theme that I have employed here on Thursdays. Nick should actually start his own blog, but then he's a soccer guy, and he'd probably start writing about that, and that kinda kills the whole thing right there... ;) J.J. is one of my newer friends and coworkers, and he was involved in a couple of conversations that I witnessed this week. Just last night, a couple of customers approached our front door with lit cigarettes:
Customer: "Do you have an ashtray?"
Customer: "Can we smoke inside?"
If you have followed the blog for any length of time, you know when I wanted to roll my eyes...
"No, you can't smoke inside, but we DO have ashtrays..." :P
I was at my post in the hallway last weekend, and a couple of guys were pouring their beers into plastic cups (yes, clean cups) when one of them bumped into J.J. and started mumbling something to his friend. I was unaware of what was happening when J.J. suddenly stopped and asked the guys, "you have a problem?" The guy started stutter-mumbling (it's a legitimate made-up phrase, look it up), "no..., no problem..." After J.J. walked away, the guys didn't say A WORD... :)
Tomorrow I am going to give you my predictions for the Final Four, which will be played this Saturday, with the national championship game coming to you on Monday night. I am currently sitting at 40-24 for this NCAA Tourney, having picked 3 of the 4 'Elite Eight' games correctly. That has been my favorite round to this point, as the 3 winners that I picked won decisively, with my loss coming in the Buckeyes 4-point defeat at the hands of Wichita State. And yes Shockers fans, I do realize what happens when I get smarmy with your team in your blog... Congratulations! ;)
I hope that you have a great day and I'll see you again tomorrow!
