Before I begin, let me just send out a prayer to the families of the 50,000 people whose lives were lost in the 7.0 earthquake in Haiti and pray for others as well, and if you cant contribute to keep those in your thoughts and prayers.
OK, with the NFL Playoffs continuing this weekend, here are my pics to come out victorious this weekend. In the AFC, I like the Colts over Baltimore in a close game, and the Chargers over the Jets . In the NFC, I like the Cards to continue their playoff run and upset the Saints in what could be Kurt Warners last season, and in the other game, I’m sort of up in the air, so for that reason, I have asked a co-worker of mine, an expert in WOW but with no knowledge of the game ( He doesnt even know what a football is…. ) to pick between the Cowboys and Vikings and he is going with the Cowboys. In all seriousness, between a hot Cowboys team and a Vikings team led by an ageless QB in Bret Favre, who has been a thorn on my side throughout the years ( 49ER fan here….), this should be a good one.
OK, now , for some more pics, first, the two remaining classics.
FENWAY AND WRIGLEY, THE CLASSICS

WRIGLEY FIELD, 5/12/2006….PADRES VS. CUBS
Taken in one of the coldest May’s in over 100 years in Chicago. This would be my first time watching a sporting event in sub-40 degree weather…..( Note, I am a native of L.A………)
The view from the bleachers….
The famous scoreboard, after the game. That blue ” L ” flag has been a familiar sight to Cubs fans over the years……
And Now We Cruise The West….

Donning my Dodger Blue colors in McCovey cove ( The locals really loved me for that, especially since this was taken one day after we clinched the wild card up on their field !!!!!)
