It seems like after every recap I do, I get some questions about things that I put in them. I explained a little bit in my Wild West Showdown fun facts article I posted a few weeks ago. But of course, the never ending questions keep popping up here and there. So I figured I would go ahead and post this article in an attempt (and probably a rather feeble attempt, at that) to explain as much as I can.
John: If Seattle University's RPI isn't a problem would a ten team WCC be perceived as too large since a team like Gonzaga likes to schedule as many out of conference big name opponents as possible to build up their RPI?
Finishing first in one's division is the surest way to guarantee at least a shot at a coveted World Series appearance. Some years ago MLB instituted the 'Wild Card Team' to make the number of teams in the post season an even one. It also served to generate revenue from an additional playoff series. Getting there though, is tough. The season is a long one - commencing when the snow is still flying in most cities north of Mason-Dixon and concluding after the first flakes have hit the ground the subsequent autumn. A lot of hearts will be broken during that time.

My first thought was, naturally, to try to attend ALL THREE matches. This is the "Sound of Soccer," and I wear the label "Soccer Examiner," so I would have an excuse for my excess. How could it be done, though? While South Kitsap and Bellarmine kicked off at 2:00 PM, the Pumas pushed it with their 4:30 PM start time. The Sounders began at 7:30 PM.
Slowly but surely, the New England Patriots are returning to championship form. They are older, they've lost some speed and skills but a Bill Belichick team doesn't stray much from the high standard he has set. They will be ready as the playoffs approach.
How can a team from sunny SoCal finish last? The climate alone should attract a few good players. But if these players are more interested in the bikinis on Mission Beach, they probably won't hit much out of the infield.
They ran out of VIA coffee samples and have changed the offer to FREE shipping one to arrive in your email on March 8. I was able to get in for a free sample but I just can't imagine any make at home instant coffee being worth $1 a cup.
