I really enjoyed watching Georgia demolish LSU (I only actually got to watch the 4th quarter but saw the “gamecast” online at work). I also relished the fact that the Braves knocked the Cubs out of the playoffs. At the same time, Furman was pummeling Western Carolina.
All of which got me thinking…. this could turn out to be the greatest season of sport in my life as a fan. I am now thinking I have a shot at the ultimate combination.
Check it out as I list my 3 favorite teams in each league/sport:
1. Georgia Bulldogs – ranked #3 in the country with a very legitimate chance at the national championship this year!
2. Florida State – ranked somewhere in the top ten, could get into the BCS picture
3. Louisville Cardinals – undefeated and ranked around 20 or so (should rise), and could sneak into the BCS picture themselves, which would be unprecedented.
Division 1AA – Furman is ranked #2 in the country and has a legit shot at the 1AA national title this year. Furman and Georgia…. that would be incredible.
Baseball: My 3 favorite teams reflect the 3 parts of the country in which I’ve lived.
1. Atlanta Braves – They weren’t supposed to be that good, yet they won their division again. They’re not expected to make it to the World Series, which is exactly why they just might do it. Wouldn’t that be awesome!
2. Boston Red Sox – in the playoffs with a legit shot at the World Series.
3. Cincinatti Reds – OK so they’re not that great and are done….
NFL – yeah I’m not really into the NFL, but I do have certain teams I prefer:
1. Atlanta Falcons – with Michael Vick you never know. Currently undefeated with a great shot at the playoffs.
2. Indianapolis Colts – also undefeated and a legit Super Bowl possibility this year.
3. Green Bay Packers – for some reason I’ve just always liked them.
SO… there it is. Obvoiusly there are other teams I’m interested in, but if forced to rank my top three there they are in each sport. And you can see why this Fall has the potential to be incredible!!!
