Last week's recap

Playoff Predictions Update
My pick/ Actual pick

Yankees over Twins 3-1/ Yankees over Twins 3-0
-I thought one of the Yankee starters would falter, but just 3 ER over 19 IP, and the lowest ERA so far in the playoffs, I feel great about this club.
Red Sox over Angels 3-2/ Angels over Red Sox 3-0
-No comment, I couldn't be more wrong. Hopefully the Angels flipping the ownership of the Sox/Halos history is a pre-cursor for the same thing happening with the Pinstripes.
Dodgers over Cardinals 3-2/ Dodgers over Cardinals 3-0
-This might have been closer if not for Matt Monday. New nickname after that awful play, as good as holidays are, Mondays are just as bad.
Phillies over Rockies 3-0/ Phillies over Rockies 3-1
-Is Brad Lidge back? This guy has gone from awful to dominant as often as Oprah has gone from fat to skinny, I don't know what to expect, but I'm glad I don't have to worry about him closing my team's games.

Last week's NFL picks!
Three-for-three. I swept my picks, just like the Yankees swept the Twins. No idea why I didn't put the Giants game here since I picked it in real life, but, let's try to build this momentum into next week.
Cincinnati (+8.5) at Baltimore-- RIGHT
Minnesota (-10) at St. Louis-- RIGHT
Indianapolis (-3.5) at Tennessee-- RIGHT

Offensive Play, Malcom Gladwell makes an argument that football and dogfighting are not as different as you'd think?
Sporcle, Can you name all the #1 seeds in March Madness history?
No Hate for Kate, the Yankees told the players' wives and girlfriends to quit trash talking Kate Hudson. This is the playoffs, shut your mouths.
