As you might hear about 100,000,000 million times on the television tonight, Game 6 of the 2004 ALCS was Schilling's "bloody sock" game. And wouldn't you know, he's starting this year's Game 6 as well tonight, against the Lord of the Flies, Fausto Carmona.
For those who don't fancy the ball of bases, we have the ball of feet. Michigan and Illinois will battle for second place in the Big Ten. Auburn and LSU are both 3-1 in the SEC East, and they have conflicting opinions of who should move to 4-1. Virginia's on a six-game win streak, and are awarded with a trip to Maryland. Kansas is finished with their cupcakes, and looks to gorge on beef jerky in Colorado. Plus there could very well be some curious little Pac 10 games happening as well, but these reports are spurious at best.
But if any of those football teams lose, they still have many games left in the season. If the Red Sox can't keep the Indians off the bases, then it's back to offseason Manny Ramirez trade rumors, and Cleveland will meet its second straight 1993 expansion team in the World Series in as many decades. Otherwise, we're going to have to play baseball tomorrow, which is also football night, and Dick Ebersol won't stand for such insolence.
