What to watch this weekend for the sports fanatics

First of all, I know how to admit when I’m wrong.  Last week I said Michael Vick would be a huge hit in his debut against the Kansas City Chiefs.

So much for that.

I believe my exact words were “Let Vick torch the Chiefs for some confidence,” or something to that extent.  Well Vick had his chance, and he was essentially useless.  Even worse, Kyle Kolb must have heard what I said about him being lowly because he killed the Chiefs almost by himself.

Speaking of murder, what happened with Vitali Klitschko versus Chris Arreola?  Arreola did his best, he even landed a punch or two, but Klitschko murdered him throughout the entire fight.  Klitschko really should pick on someone his own size, like the Jolly Green Giant.

Well last weekend has passed and this weekend has a few more things to look forward to, so let’s do the rundown.

On Florida A&M University’s campus, the cross-country team will compete in the Bobby Lane Invitational on Saturday.  Both the men and women teams will be competing, and even better, for the first time, the event is actually on campus.  At 10:00 a.m. the men will head out from the track, followed at by the women at 10:45 a.m.

Sadly, our undefeated football team will not be in action this weekend.  They will be taking a break from competition before heading to Land Shark Stadium to take on the University of Miami Hurricanes.

Following suit with FAMU’s bye-week, I’m taking a break from college football.  I’m sick of Florida State not living up to expectations, and if I have to watch one more top five team get smacked I’ll probably be sick.

On the professional side of football, prepare to jump with pure joy.  The New York Jets are taking on the New Orleans Saints.  Young upstarts versus established veterans.  Sanchez versus Brees.  Two perfect records, and one will have to fall.

Yeah, I can’t wait either.

Also look for the Steelers to smack around the Chargers.  The Steelers have lost back-to-back games for the first time in two years, and they’re ready to wreak havoc against a team they beat twice last year.  It also doesn’t hurt that the Chargers will be short of their start running back.

The last big game has to be the Green Bay Packers against the Minnesota Vikings.  Brett Favre is finally making his triumphant return to Wisconsin, and Aaron Rodgers is going to do everything in his power to make sure the Packers fans forget about their old starter.  I’m really hoping for Rodgers to win this one; Favre gets on my nerves with his off-season soap opera antics, and it’s time for someone new to get the spotlight.
So there you go, plenty of football action, and a cross-country tournament to keep things exciting over this weekend.  The race to the playoffs is almost over for baseball, so starting next week I’ll give you some interesting MLB match ups to watch for.  Enjoy your weekend Rattlers.
