From a sports perspective, yesterday was a mixed bag for me. On the positive side, the Rangers looked strong, getting a solid win against the White Sox with very good starting pitching, filthy relief pitching and a few timely hits, including a home run from Ian Kinsler.
Speaking of the Rangers- I got these Tribute cards this week.
Things are not so rosy in Razorback-land though. The Diamond Hogs lost their 4th straight game and are officially in a slump. I don't even want to get into the Bobby Petrino mess, other than to say I don't see how the U of A doesn't fire him. They really have no choice. Again, I don't want to get into it because it aggravates me too much and it's no fun to write about.
But back to baseball and opening day. Here is a look into the Napkin Doon crystal ball:
NL East: Braves
NL Central: Cardinals
NL West: Diamondbacks
NL WCards: Marlins and Giants
Oh, and here are some other Tribute cards I got along with the Rangers above. They are lovely.
AL East: Yankees
AL Central: Tigers
AL West: I decline to pick this division. Not because I'm superstitious, but because I feel that my making a prediction will have a direct impact on how the season plays out.
AL WCards: Rays and a respectful decline to answer on the 2nd team since they may or may not come out of the AL West.
World Series: Marlins vs. an AL Team from the Western Division who shall remain nameless but have been to the World Series a lot lately.
