The Morning After Pill is a daily recap of the previous days events from the sporting world. Certain teams and entire sports are left out due to an extreme lack of caring or crippling hangovers. It’s probably the hangovers though, and they might not even be crippling. That’s how we roll. Send tips to tips@ thegallyblog.com.
Nothing too exciting here, the Yankees won, Red Sox won…OH AND ARMANDO GALARRAGA GOT JOBBED OUT OF A PERFECT GAME BY JIM JOYCE ON THE WORST CALL IN MLB REGULAR SEASON HISTORY! SHIT!
Oh and the man with the prettiest swing in the history of baseball, Ken Griffey Jr. announced his retirement.
The Philadelphia Flyers do what the Canucks, and Sharks were unable to do: Win a home game against the Chicago Blackhawks, snapping their road playoff winning streak at 7 games. The Flyers win 4-3 in OT on a deflection from Claude Giroux to cut the Blackhawks lead in the series down to 2-1.
The NBA did what it’s players do best last night: Sat around, watched, waited for something to happen, and eventually let someone else do everything. The NBA Finals finally tip-off tonight. Prediction? No.
Rumor has it that Boise State will be joining the Mountain West Conference, and will be eligible to play games for them starting in 2011. And with that move, the MWC becomes more of a legit football conference than the Big East.
Tiger Woods will play in The Memorial which starts today. If he wasn’t, you wouldn’t be reading a golf update on here.
That about it for here. Go out there and make the best of the day.
Baseball Uh…Baseball is still going on? Umm…Hey look a blue football field!
College Football College football made it’s triumphant return last night. And by triumphant I mean slightly anticlimatic…Except for…Well I’ll get to that…
The early game on ESPN saw Steve Spurrier’s *cough* Douche *cough* South Carolina Gamecocks snickers take on the Wolf Pack of N.C. State. Saying this game was boring would be putting it mildly. I’ve seen late term abortions with more appeal…Damn I’ve been talking with Logic too much lately. Regardless, the Cocks of Game took this one 7-3.
Utah and Utah State battled for the Mormons’ enjoyment last night, with Utah winning 35-17. It’s almost like back in the days of the Roman Coliseum. But instead of Romans it’s Mormons. And instead of fights to the death or being mauled by a lion, it’s just football.
The late game on ESPN saw Oregon taking on Boise State. You might remember Boise State as a potential BCS buster over the last few seasons, as well as having one of the most hideous football fields in America. Blue turf? Really? I guess it actually gives people a reason to be interested in Idaho, albeit just for the color of their turf. Hey Idaho is also known for having potatoes! Yes makes wanking off motion, and I am known for not giving a shit. Boise State controlled this game for 4 quarters and took the win with a 19-8 finish.
Boise State’s To Do list for the next week should look like, 1) Work on field goals, because kicker, Kyle Brotzman, went 1/3 last night missing a 29 yarder, and 2) Hold on to the football. They lost 3 fumbles and it almost was more.
Oregon’s To Do list should look something like this, 1-5) Get new uniforms (underlined and circled a bunch of times). That whole, tribal looking duck wings on the shoulders are as cool looking as chicks wearing Ugg boots in the summer time.
Am I forgetting anything else? Hmmm….Oh yeah this happened too.
Somebody is gonna to get suspended…Or signed by the Bengals….or maybe both. Hmmm..,
