An Interesting Wednesday On Tap

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.

Its Wednesday, so if you are a regular reader you know what's on tap for tonight's entry. It has been an interesting week to say the least: from Steve Lyons' brain cramp, to the trials and tribulations of Juan Uribe, to suspensions in the NFL, to the debacle involving the Miami Hurricanes and Florida International. Check back later for more.

Good and bad day for Portuguese teams in Champions' League (yes we are STILL doing soccer here). F.C. Porto beat up on Hamburg at the Estadio das Antas yesterday, an impressive 4-1 win, but they are still in tough. Benfica of Lisbon lost 3-0 in Scotland against Celtic - a tie would have done them they really have their work cut out for them. Sporting Lisbon goes today in Portugal against Bayern Munich. We'll keep our fingers crossed - I won't ask for Hazel Karma at this stage of the tournament.

Last night's three play went ok - the Sabres humiliated the Flyers (which is always nice to see - especially Ken Hitchcock's face) and the Oilers avenged the Saturday night loss to the Canucks - the Flames were put out in Montreal though.

Jeff Weaver of the Cardinals held the Mets at bay yesterday, holding them to two runs on six hits and two walks over 6 innings. Not great numbers - but impressive against a Mets team that laid the lumber to St. Louis the night before.

Maxim Afinogenov of the Buffalo Sabres had a goal and four assists last night in a 9-1 beatdown of the Flyers - being part of Leaf Nation, Hazel had to love that one.

Evegeni Nabokov of the San Jose Sharks stopped 32 shots in a shutout win over the previously undefeated Dallas Stars. .

Toronto over Colorado - The Avs aren't as scary as they once were - and Hazel's Maple Leafs are playing good hockey. The Leafs' power play is working right now, and Raycroft is solid.

Minnesota over Los Angeles - The Wild are undefeated and the Kings have lost three in a row - don't expect things to change in this one.

Anaheim over Detroit - Its early, but this is a statement game for the Ducks - they bounced the Wings out of the playoffs last year, and they'll be looking to prove that it was no fluke.

Take them and run with them - It's going to be a 3-0 night. I don't like tonight's Cardinals/Mets game...though if I had to pick a winner, I'd take the Mets to extend it to seven games.

For those of you keeping track of the Hazelspeeps Fantasy Football Pool - our Commish Drisc is our league's version of the Chicago Bears, undefeated after 6 weeks of the season...though I don't know if he covered the 6 point spread he posted for his matchup last week. Things are bunched up after Drisc with the rest of us within one game of both second place and last place. Standings after Week 6.

6-0 Fighting Bobcats - owned by Commish Drisc who decided to rattle the owners cages by claiming that Hazel is a Bobcats fan. .

3-3 Ageswimmer - owned by Bushey, who is one of the quiet peeps on the board - and has not yet made a peep.

3-3 Tina's Team - our girl Tina is back and holding her own in the football pool. She claims not to know much about football...but she's getting it done.

2-4 Ithaca Commons - owned by our boy Kevin who is studying hard in Rochester, NY.

2-4 Jack-O-Lanterns - owned by our resident Steinbrenner Hubie, who is going for the Triple Crown of waivers moves - Baseball, Football and Hockey pools.

2-4 Hazel Mae's Cowboys - owned by El Presidente, who made some moves this week and won to pull up into the thick of things.

Have a great one peeps - check back later for the Weird & Whacked Wednesday update.

Just when you think you haJust when you think you have everything figured out, you will discover something new has been added to the equation. Don't be dismayed; you will be ahead of anyone trying to throw a wrench in your plans today. 3 stars

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world - hope the first episode of The Buzz went over well too.

Song of the Day on Hazelspeeps - its cold and rainy and I'd love to stay home from work today...but we can't do that, so I go to work singing:

Jammin' - Bob Marley

Peesth Out...Buh Bye!
