Why I couldn't get Married in the Spring Time

Hello Folks!

Time for another edition of Sports from a Girl's Point of View!

You may all be wondering to yourselves, "What do weddings and sports have to do with one another?"

Well, to me, they are closely tied. You see it is a sports enthusiast's heaven right now. Baseball just started, the NBA and NHL playoffs are set to commence, and last but certainly not least NFL DRAFT DAY is coming!!

Just a couple of reasons why, if and when, I ever get married, it would have to be in July or August, as those tend to be the least sports intensive months of the calendar year.

I think this is the cutest cake topper ever. I think I will have to convince my groom (whoever he may be) that we have to incorporate some small aspect of sports into our wedding. I Think I have to marry a guy that is CRAZY about sports, which isn't too difficult to find, just like my current boyfriend. You never know ;-)

Enough with the make-believe wedding talk however. There is a lot going on in the sporting world that I want to let you all know about.

Dodger Come Back
The Dodgers lost their first 2 games of the season to the Pittsburgh Pirates, the worst franchise in baseball for the past 20 years, leaving many long-term fans disgruntled, to say the least. However, today they rebounded in a big way to beat the Pirates 10-2. Not a bad way to redeem yourself. Maybe the McCourt's divorce isn't going to damage the Dodgers after all... It is still too early to tell.

NHL Playoffs
I am not a hockey expert, not even close. In fact, I just got into hockey this year (the one sport that my boyfriend insisted upon). However, it has quickly become one of my favorite sports.

When the game is good, it is great. You can't get much more excitement than what hockey brings. The fast-paced action, the skill level, and not to mention the fights. I am very excited because for the first time since 2002, the LA Kings are in the playoffs. I am just hoping my bad playoff luck doesn't affect them. I have listed the rest of the teams that are also in the playoffs.

In no Particular Order
  • LA Kings
  • Washington Capitals
  • San Jose Sharks
  • New Jersey Devils
  • Detroit Red Wings
  • Pittsburg Penguins
  • Ottawa Senators
  • Chicago Blackhawks
  • Vancouver Canucks
  • Phoenix Coyotes
  • Nashville Predators
  • Colorado Avalanche
If you don't watch Hockey I would recommend catching a playoff game or two, I hear they are great.

Miscellanous Sports News
  • Tiger Woods returns to the Masters Tournament: Okay this story is getting as old and annoying as the Brett Favre debacle. Leave him be already
  • Draft Day- April 22nd: As a football fan, this day is almost as exciting as first opening kickoff of the season. I am very excited about this and I hope the Chargers pick up some good players. We are in desperate need of a running back and a defensive tackle.
Hope you enjoyed the random sports update. Are there any teams you're looking forward to watching in the playoffs? :)


  1. Lakers, baby!!! You know what that means. The bacon pillow is coming out of its vault.

    I'm not sure if you've already mentioned this, but are you superstitious when watching a Charger game?

  2. D-Lo... Woot yay for Lakers! I am super excited about watching some playoffs with you guys:)

    As far as Charger superstitions hmm I guess I always have to be wearing a Jersey game day but i cant wear it the Friday before game day, they always lose.

  3. Hey girl! I tried to reply back to you but you don't have the email set up option in place. Yes I twirled on a competition team from the age of 11-20. I went to many national competitions and placed 2 at the USTA nationals and then I won 2 of the NBT Nationals.
