Random Walk

Hunter Pence didn't make out too badly, did he?

Traded to the Giants at the July deadline, Pence struggled for his new team but came up big in game seven of the NLDS.  Now Hunter is going to the World Series.  Funny game.  Ha ha.

Bicycle racing authorities have stripped Lance Armstrong of his seven Tour de France medals and expressed the hope he would be forgotten.  Well, he won't be....yet, but they can be certain that generations hence no one will remember someone whose name has been expunged.

Armstrong isn't out of the woods yet.  Tour officials are going to want their money back.  I assume if an athlete has the desire and arrogance to succeed at any cost he is prone to cheating.  Isn't that right, Mr. Bonds?

Anyone seen Andrew Bynum lately?

It isn't looking good for hockey this season.  I haven't a clue what date is the magical tipping point after which the league will cancel the entire season, but I am sure the alleged brain trust of the NHL knows it.

Believe it or not, I follow local college football to a degree, that is, I always check to see how Penn, Temple and Villanova fared.  Temple really isn't doing that badly this year considering how many starters they lost and, of course, their move to a better overall league and caliber of opponent.

Penn has played poorly, plagued my sloppy play.  After so many years as one of the elite teams in the Ivy, it is a comedown to watch the Quakers struggle.

Villanova had an awful year last season after losing so many outstanding players from its championship and near championship teams.  They have begun to jell, however, and are now ranked in the top 25 of their respective division.

If you have never watched a game at Franklin Field, I urge you to buy a cheap ticket and go.  Highly entertaining.
