Did you see the ESPN 30 for 30 on the Cubs fan who tried to catch a foul ball during a playoff game in 2003 and ended up being blamed by many Cubs fans for “costing” the Cubs the game? Sorry, I don’t want to use his name on here because I don’t think we should have ever learned it in the first place. Honestly, I don’t think people would have made a big deal about it if Mr. Piss Hands Alou (what’s with the name, you ask? Moises Alou once said that he pees on his hands because it toughens his hands so they wouldn’t blister. Funny… I just wore batting gloves) hadn’t pitched a fit when it happened. People would have also forgotten it if their freaking shortstop Alex S. Gonzalez hadn’t screwed up an easy ground ball which would have been an easy double play. Or if the Cubs had won the next game. I’m a Cubs fan. I’ve been one for as long as I can remember. I thought 2003 could/would be the year for the Cubs. It wasn’t… but I don’t blame some fan for that. I never have and I never will. If I was going to blame anyone, I’d blame Sammy F’ing Sosa… but that might just be because I never liked him.
So… look at the below picture and tell the truth. Does Piglet have a drinking problem?

The I’m just sayin... Football Predictions
James Island vs. Beaufort – I’m picking JI in this game.
#13Clemson at #11Virginia Tech – 6:00pm (ESPN2) – I know it’s a road game and I know it’s at Virginia Tech, but I just can’t pick against Sammy Watkins right now. I don’t know how, but I’m picking Clemson to win this one.
Navy vs. Air Force – 12:00pm (CBS) – I pick Navy to win.
CSU vs. Wesley College – 1:30pm – I’m going to pick CSU to win this game (probably for the last time this season).
Wyoming at Utah State – 6:00pm MT – This will be a tough game on the road for the Cowboys. I think Utah State will win this in a close game.
Appalachian State at Wofford – 3:00pm – I pick Wofford to win this game.
Pittsburgh at Houston - 1:00pm (CBS) – I pick the Steelers to win this game.
Miami at San Diego – 4:15pm (CBS) – I pick San Diego to win this game.

For extraordinary heroism in action on 23 March 1945, near Speyer, Germany. When the tank on which he was riding received heavy bazooka and small arms fire, Sergeant Carter voluntarily attempted to lead a three-man group across an open field. Within a short time, two of his men were killed and the third seriously wounded. Continuing on alone, he was wounded five times and finally forced to take cover.
