random musings

Southlake Carroll had little trouble dismissing Keller Central on Friday, 57-7. All starters were removed from the game after the defense sacked Keller QB Rodge Macy causing a fumble that Carroll LB Kyle Russo recovered for a touchdown to put the Dragons up 51-0.

For those who watch the MTV show Two A Days, Hoover (Ala.) lost to John Curtis (La.), 28-14 on Friday. Hoover's football team, the basis for the MTV show, has been ranked as the nations #1 high school team since the start of the season. Many had suspected though that they we're just a tad over-rated, which seems to be the case after last Friday. Comparing Alabama high school football to that of Texas, only about 5 or 6 schools in Alabama would even make the playoffs in Texas... which begs the question, who is voting for this team as #1?

The Tigers we're swept over the weekend by the Royals... yes, those last place, worst team in the majors Kansas City Royals. The Royals completed their first three-game sweep in Detroit since 1980. The Tigers needed just one win to clinch the AL Central. Instead now they are the wild card and go on the road to play the Yankees. Way to choke Detroit.

The Tigers were the 18th team since 1900 to fall out of first place on the final day of the regular season. Detroit was the first to so by losing a game in which it led by more than three runs (the Tigers led the Royals, 6-0) and the second to do so by losing to a last-place team. The other was the 1944 Tigers, who were defeated by the last-place Senators on the final day of the season and overtaken for the American League pennant by the St. Louis Browns.
