Will Somebody, Anybody, Please Beat the Cardinals? Will the Toppers’ Top the Cats Again?

As a  return to the Bluegrass state draws closer, mere days now,  no more delayed broadcasts for viewing! 

I ponder my future and the happier times that lay ahead in HD at home, as a sports observer, from the stands and yes, the comforts of my armchair in the living room.

 I was just thinking about a few things before I return to Kentucky, and with apologies to Dick Gabriel, but on behalf of Larry Glover and Reds backers everywhere I say this; For the love of Pete (Rose) will somebody, anybody, please beat the Cardinals! A 3-game sweep would be nice! The Reds, with the exception of the Cardinals, have the best record in baseball and are in 2nd in their division. Unfair.

Cincinnati struggles to hang on to secong place in their division despite having one of the best records in baseball this year.

Is anyone really surprised that Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun are still using? I know it’s not proven, but come on people.

When will this ongoing performance-enhancing drug scandal ever end for baseball? Does anyone really care?

Should I be worried that Bobby Petrino’s Hilltoppers return some outstanding players this year and open their season vs Kentucky at 7 p.m. ET on Aug. 31 in Nashville at LP Stadium?
The Wildcats won the 2011 opener against Western Kentucky, albeit unconvincingly in Nashville 14-3, before dropping last year’s game 32-31 in overtime. Will the Cats fall prey to the toppers again? It’ll be close, am I wrong?

Will Mark Stoops’ first game as Kentucky’s new head coach unfold as a new ‘Bill curry’ type era? Or a mid-Rich Brooks era and a trip to a bowl game?

Will James Harrison joining the Cincinnati Bengal pass-rush provide them with some much needed intensity to get after the QB’s in the AFC?

Terrance Gore the sensational Legends’ leftfielder, from what I’ve read and heard from others, to include ‘Mykraphone Mike,’ won’t be a Lexington Legend very long. And yes, he’s worth the price of admission. I’m looking forward to seeing him play.

Man, will it feel good to be home!
