You may have noticed a little lag in posting in the last 2 weeks here, but unlike the fine people running BP, we're not going to hide and make excuses... ok maybe excuses. Alas I can report it has nothing to do with us disappearing; but actually has to do with us working behind the scenes on a new site as well as some soon to be announced changes (for the better).
Even that isn't taking all the time, to be fair its just a monumental time for sports right now; we don't have an IndyCar race this weekend but we're loaded with World Cup games, NCAA baseball Super Regionals, NBA finals (if you like that sorta thing... Ron), Formula One's return to Canada, the 24 Hours of Le Mans and tons more.
Right now you'll find all of us doing plenty tweeting out there if you need your Furious Wedge fix; just think of it as some kind of cone device that we put over the massive outflow (or spill, if you will) of not posting. So lets get some stuff in here real quick.
Then Argentina plays some of the most aggressive first 45 minutes I've seen, seriously with all their hair and aggressiveness I bet they were even hitting on the Nigerian player's wives at the half. Nigeria looked good in the 2nd half but that wasn't enough, and I'll just say this about yesterday's matches... Mexico should be ahead in Pool B as the only winner right now.
Right now they're down 4-2 to South Carolina in a game that already includes 2 innings with bases loaded, one with walking a run in, another with a 2 run home run, a sliding/tripping out at first base and now somehow we've started another pitchers duel... This is going to be so hard once England/USA starts, my brain might just explode.
Apparently there's some NBA league out there, but I'm sure Ron can tell you more about that; I can tell you D.C. is all up in a frenzy over Stephen Strasburg.. and how can you not be? Kid (and I use that term because he is) threw ridiculous stuff, has many major pitches and all of them are the extremes of their kind. High 90 fastball, curve that drops 3 feet, change up that goes 20 mph slower than the fastball with no tip to when its coming... I now have a few Nats tickets to go check this out in person, surely something that melt my face like that scene in Indiana Jones.
Oh yeah and Boise State finally realized they need to go to the Mountain West, and Nebraska joins the Big 10.... which means the Big 10 now has 12 teams.... and the Big 12 now has 10 teams... You can't make that up. Now what are the odds Louisiana Tech finally comes to the conclusion they are nowhere close to "West" and get out of the WEC joining the SEC opposite Texas A&M???
So with all this and more going on, I need to get back to this, see you on twitter, and look out for some big announcements for Furious Wedge very soon. In all seriousness to all you World Cup fans, may everyone be safe, may none of the 300 players who fall down grabbing at legs actually be hurt, and may the best teams win...USA!
