The Eternal Season - Friday Ocotber 28th

Hello again TES Friends!

Mobile blogging from my wine spot tonight, wanted a low key place to watch Game 7, and this is it.  One of the greatest spectacles in sports, we can only hope it has the drama of game 6.  People who think baseball is boring should be forced to watch that game over and over.

And its a great leadoff to the sports weekend.  The Hawks go Rodent hunting at 3:30 on the BTN, but there are good games on at noon and the nighttime. Get your fix! 

Well, the Caps were not going to go undefeated, so a one goal loss on the other coast is no cause for concern.  Another steak begins!  Go Caps!

Still more chaos on the conference front, but we shall have more to say as things clear up in the coming days, and we are at a regualr keyboard. 

Tonight brings the baseball season to an end. But in The Eternal Season, we have football, hockey,  and in two weeks, college hoops. And when the March Madness ends, baseball will be here again.  So goes The Eternal Season - on and on. We will see you again on Sunday night!  Until then, enjoy the baseball and football filled weekend!

The Eternal Season - Sunday Ocotber 23rd

Hello Again TES Friends!

A real quick TES tonight, as I have come down with something cold/allergy related, and my head needs to rest.  A very successful weekend for we here at TES, with the Hawks winning big, the Caps going to 7-0-0, and today, the Cowboys did not find a way to blow the game!  On top of this has been an exciting World Series, where the Rangers are currently up 1-0 in the 5th of game 4 - with the RedBirds leading 2-1.  This after Albert's historic night last night, 5 of 6, 3 homers, and 6 rbis.  So far, cooler tonight.

And with that, my head is saying enough, and off to lie down I go.  Remember, 24 hours from now, the Monday will be over and done with, again.  So hang in there, we'll get to the end soon enough!  Now, your listings - have a good night!
