The Detroit Tigers beat the New York Yankees last night, 3-2 to win the series and will move on to play the Texas Rangers Saturday night. The Yankees had their fair share of opportunities, leaving the bases loaded twice. A-Rod went 0-4 with 3 K's, earning every cent of that paycheck. More here.
Less than a year after committing to play in the Big East next year, it looks as if TCU will move to the Big-12. Conference realignment is going absolutely crazy.

Down 15-14 at half, last night Oregon scored 29 second half points to beat Cal, 43-15. The Ducks once again showed why they are a top-caliber team.

Tonight starting at 5:07, both NLDS series will come to an end. The Brewers host the Diamondbacks, who in Chase Field, had an offensive explosion, hitting a grand slam in each game. And of course, the Phillies host the Cardinals for one last time in CBP. Halladay goes against Carpenter in what has the makings of a very very nerve-racking game. Writer Tristan Tschoepe will be in attendance tonight, look for him, he'll be wearing red and waving a white rally towel. Also tonight, Kane Kalas, Harry's son, will be singing the national anthem. If that wasn't enough, Lauren Hart will be doing her famous rendition of God Bless America as well. If those two can't get the city fired up, i honestly don't know what will.
