Chargers Vs. Steelers: A Disappointing End

October 4, 2009

The Chargers were in Pittsburgh today, and had a great second half offensively. The first half was absolutely terrible. No offense, no defense… nothing. It all added up to 21 points in the first half. Take away one of those TD’s and I think the Chargers would’ve won. My player of the game: Antonio Gates. He had a big game, 9 receptions for 124 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Chargers had an awesome comeback in the second half, scoring their only 28 points. They just dug themselves to deep of a hole.  Next week the Chargers have a bye, and the Steelers are facing Detroit (1-3-0, 4th in the AFC North). So, after this week:

Chargers (2-2, 2nd in AFC West)

Steelers (2-2, 3rd in AFC North)

Upset of Week 4:

Denver Broncos: 17   Dallas Cowboys: 10

That game was a HUGE surprise.  I was hearing all about Dallas all week, and how phony Denver 3-0 start is. I’m not saying that the Broncos, who lead the AFC West at 4-0, deserve it… but they are there and that’s all that matters now. They beat Cincinnati on a fluke play, but whatever.

They have a tough schedule coming up. If they can go through the Patriots, the Chargers, the Ravens and the Steelers with 2 or less losses they might actually be a contender. I don’t see it happening, though. My prediction is that they will have MAX, 1 win. New England, Baltimore and Pittsburgh will dominate them on defense and out play them on offense. If they are not beat up after their game with the Patriots, then Denver and my Chargers are going to have a close game on their hands. However, if the Broncos go out there tired and beat up from the previous week, the Chargers can put it away early.

All Star Game Score

July 14, 2009

Final score:
AL 4
NL 3

Oh well, my National Leaguers lost again. Next year, though. I didn’t get a chance to watch the game, but I saw Curtis Granderson hit a triple late in the game to win it. I’m also disappointed with Adrian Gonzalez (only 2 home runs in the Home Run Derby) and even more disappointed with Fox. I’ll save the Fox thing for tommorows post. Anyway, please exuse my spelling in this post. I’m writing it on my iPhone and I’m not sure the spell check works too well on the WordPress app.

San Diego Crusaders Cup: Day 1

July 11, 2009

So this morning my team, The Hotspurs, had two games. The first game was a complete disaster… a huge 5-0 loss for us. So there’s one L. But wait… it gets even better. The next game which is later on in the afternoon, opposed to our first 8:20 morning game, was ANOTHER loss. 3 – 1. I’m going to keep this simple, just in case someone I know that is on my team that has an opposing view is reading. I blame two people for that game and ONLY two people. I’m not going any further with that, and that is ALL I’m going to say about that. There were decisions in that game that were made that I don’t think were right, and I will respect that, even if I don’t think they were the smartest way to go. I am just not happy at all with the outcome of those games. If you are a soccer enthusiast or especially if you are a soccer player. You’ll know what I’m talking about. If you know me, or are on my team, you will know just who I am talking about. A lot of the people on my team would even agree with me, or at least that’s what they seem like they would do. I’m done with this subject until tomorrow. I’m getting all pissed off just writing about it.

Hi everyone,

This weekend is the Nike Crusaders Cup, and for all of you who don’t know, this is a soccer tournament which is going to be played in La Jolla this year. My team, Hotspurs , is going to playing in it. Let’s hope my team can win. The Jeary is on my team, and is probably going to be writing a post about this too. Anyways, tomorrow and Sunday I will be writing posts on the scores. Go Hotspurs!
