Weekend Update and my dead-on Sox-Yanks predictions

4-23-07
I think we should just give up on Monday. It wins every time. Why bother! We're going to lose. Why fight it.
   Anyway, enough about Monday already.
   The Crook County track team fared well at the Prefontaine Coast Classic in Coos Bay on Friday, a non-scoring meet. David Parks occupied his usual position at top, taking first in the 100, 200 and high jump at the 18-team invite, while Michelly Foley took first in the 3,000.
   Those were the lone first-place finishes for CC, but they also took second in the boys 4x100; Kady Stafford took second in javelin; Cater Lopez took second in high jump; and Cassey Hehn took second in triple jump.
   Boys golf tied for fifth at the Bend Golf and Country Club on Friday, compiling a 355 with Madras. Mike Chappell shot an 81 for the round.
   The girls golf team carded a 405 and finished third at Pendleton Country Club, with Cami Williams leading the way with a 93.
   Results from the Crook County rodeo team were posted, and while team results have not been updated, the squad fared well in their spring opener. The top cowgirl was Laura Fenimore, who took a pair of first-place finishes in girls cutting with matching scored of 74.
   In tennis, the Cowboys lost to Hermiston 8-0, and fell to Pendleton 6-2. The Cowgirls, on the other hand, defeated Pendleton 7-1 before falling to Hermiston 6-2.
   Both the baseball and softball teams were idle this weekend.

   As for my prediction on the Sox-Yanks, well, I was almost right. I said the Sox would win the first two convincingly (they won the first two, but not convincingly); they would lose Sunday because they wouldn't get any run support for Dice-K (they won Sunday, but almost lost because they didn't get any run support for Dice-K); Dice-K would hit A-Rod on the shoulder and spark a brawl (this one was close -- I think he hit him in the wrist, but no brawl); and Ramirez would hit three homers (he hit one homer, but was part of four consecutive homers the Sox would hit on Sunday).
   Depending on how you look at it, I was almost right, or not even close to being right. Whatever. Happy Monday.
