Topic 1: Possibly the greatest comeback in sports history took
place on Wednesday after the BoSox defeated the evil Yankee
dynasty. After a 3-0 deficit, the Red Sox won four in a row and now
head to the World Series for the first time since 1986. Will the
curse be lifted?
Bondy: It will be once the Red Sox win.
Baker: Contrary to some beliefs, the curse has not been broken
yet. When they win the World Series the curse will be lifted. And
they will win.
Bondy: Of course they will. I have a lucky shirt. Half the curse
was broken after they defeated the Yanks.
Baker: They can’t let the win get to their heads though. The Sox
celebrate every win like they won a championship, which is sweet,
but they need to stay focused.
Bondy: Pedro definitely proved that his “daddy” was Yankee
Stadium, but look for him to improve. Boston’s pitching staff looks
Baker: The Yankees are no longer the Sox’s “daddys” because in
the last two years, Boston has the edge in the series 27-25.
Topic 2: Carmelo Anthony was cited for possession of marijuana
while boarding a team flight this week. He claims the pot wasn’t
his (big surprise), and that it was left in his bag, (how
convenient, maybe for a little session on the plane). Was it his
and how dumb is it to try and take drugs onto an airplane?
Baker: I believe Melo. He passed four random drug tests last
year, one a couple weeks ago, and another at the Olympics. He
sounds clean to me.
Bondy: Why would he let someone put close to an ounce of pot
into his bag? Why does every athlete use the same excuses? Do they
think they’re clever?
Baker: His lawyer announced that Melo’s friend would be taking
the rap for the drugs.
Bondy: Wow, I wouldn’t do that for you.
Topic 3: Q and A Lightning Round
Bondy: Battle of the unbeaten: Jets or Patriots?
Baker: Jets, Jets, Jets, Jets. The Patriots can’t go 16-0.
Baker: Is Utah entitled to a BCS Bowl Game?
Bondy: I hope they go undefeated just to screw with the system.
Then they’ll deserve it.
Bondy: Is Fort Collins a drinking town with a college
Baker: Yes, but what college town isn’t?
Baker: Biggest upset in college football this week?
Bondy: Texas Tech beating Texas.
Topic 4: The Border War continues with its 96th meeting. This
year features the 4-2 Wyoming Cowboys pitted against a 2-3 CSU
team. Both teams are 1-1 in conference play and look to advance in
the Mountain West Conference. Who pulls out a victory and gets the
Baker: It’s always a tough game to predict. Both teams will
bring their A game. With Hanie at the helm, the game will certainly
Bondy: After last year’s heartbreaking loss, I think the Rammies
can pull through with a close victory.
Baker: I hate to agree with you, so I’m picking the Cowboys.
Bondy: If the defense plays as well as they did last week, we’ll
be in good shape.
Baker: Yeah, but what are the odds of that happening?
Closing statements and words to the wise:
Bondy: Paul, who’s your daddy?
Baker: If you rip on me 13 or 14 more times, I swear, I’m out.
