Surrounded By Idiots In Red

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

My cousin called me yesterday afternoon to ask me if I wanted to go to the Leafs/Tards game with him - a supplier gave him two tickets. My initial reaction was "No, you know what happens when I go see the Leafs...they lose. I'm a jinx." After he berated me for turning down a free ticket - I decided to go, big mistake. Surrounded by the idiots in red - who now refer to themselves as "Sens Army", I sat there and watched the Leafs lose another game. I've never be to a Leafs' game where they ended up winning. I should have just stayed home.

St. Louis pulled one out last night without the help of Albert Pujols - instead it was David Eckstein who shouldered the load. Bad way for Detroit to lose it last night.

David Eckstein of the Cards had four hits, including three doubles, and knocked in two runs in the Cards comeback win over the Tigers.

Martin St. Louis of the Tampa Bay Lightning scored a hat-trick last night in leading Tampa to a 5-1 victory over Carolina.

Scott Hartnell of the Predators scored two goals to lead Nashville to a surprise win over the Sharks.

Another good night last night - New Jersey and Buffalo both won, but Carolina much for the $100 night; still though, it would have been a net profit of $50 bucks - so the hypothetical account would stand at + $145. So on to tonight's picks - not much to pick tonight.

Detroit over St. Louis - I think tonight's game will prove to be a reversal of fortunes from game 1. I think Anthony Reyes will go back to pitching like Anthony Reyes - and the Cards will get a look at the Justin Verlander that blew away the American League for a good part of the season. Lay $50 down on the Cards tonight.

Dallas over Detroit - the Red Wings surprised the Sharks, but the Stars will be ready for them. These two usually play pretty tight games, but I think last change does it for Dallas tonight. Take the Stars for $25.

Columbus over Los Angeles - both teams are playing poorly; but Columbus has a lot more upside than the Kings. Lay $25 down on Columbus.

Don't let jobs that are unfinished get to you. The only thing you can do is to go at your own pace and get done what you can. The more you fret about something or someone, the less you will accomplish. 2 stars

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world. Have a great weekend.
