So its the end of the year and I figure it is a decent time to reflect on what has transpired in the past calendar year. Amazing to believe and think that 2006 is almost over and that 2007 is just a jump away. Anyways…I have no real order to this list. Some things are life, sports, and just random stuff in my head. I will try to go month by month, if I can. If not, then sue me.
January – Best – Sugar Bowl: The year got kicked off with a major bang as WVU beat Georgia in their own dome to win the Sugar Bowl. For one, it was a great time. And for seconds, WVU actually won a bowl game! Yes, for the second time, no maybe third (I will have to check), WVU actually won a bowl game. Wow.
Best – Rose Bowl – now that was a game…one of the best I've seen in some time.
Worst – No snow in January – seriously, one of the mildest winters I have ever lived through and it was not the coldest of winters either.
Best – Steelers win Super Bowl – Okay, I had trouble putting "best" beside this one but it was a good thing. Bettus got his ring, the entire psycho Steeler nation got their "one for the thumb" and I believe it shut them all up for at least 10 more years. Again, both my team (the 49ers) and some cryboy team in Texas would like to congratulate you on becoming a member in the 5 rings club.
Feburary – Best – My 21st – sure becoming legal to drink is one thing but the random looks from other states when they see the id is always a laugh
Worst – Winter – okay the cold finally came as it normally does…the only bad part was standing in line at the Coliseum for games….
Worst – Mountaineer Manics – its a damn cult really. Peoplpe getting in the building early to save seats. Not just one or two but I am talking like 4 or 5 rows. It was horrible and totally wrong for the people out in the cold.
March – Best – George Mason's run – alright, nothing like a bracket buster pal. I loved it though.
Worst – Cold spring breaks – maybe that is why people go south for those things…
April – Best – Moving into new place – out with the old and in with the new…place…okay that was cheesy but it worked. Got a new townhouse here in town and got rid of an annoying couple who lived together but didn't live together. Oh, and their dog was never fed either.
Best – Honda Civic – getting a new car is always nice…don't ya think?
May – Best – Starting a new internship!!! – Dallas for the summer was great! Seriously…
Alright, I am sorta tired of the month by month thing…so whatever. After summer was fall semester and you have read what has been good and bad in the fall semester. Football, soccer and a girlfriend – good….school, school, and school – have been not soo good.
Here are some final lists that I made up. All mostly sports related I believe.
Male Athlete – Tiger Woods
Female Athlete – Amelie Mauresmo
Best Championship Team – Italy World Cup soccer …so I am biased on the sport…it was the only World Champion on the list really…
Coach of the Year – Jim Larranaga, George Mason basketball
Rookie of the Year – Vince Young, Tennessee Titans
Best Game – USC 41, Texas 38 (Rose Bowl)
Biggest Disappointment – Bode Miller
Biggest Disappointment (Team) – New York Yankees
Most Overrated Story – (Tie) Barbaro and Kobe scoring 81 on the Toronto Raptors
Best Story – "J-Mac" – Autistic kid Jason McElwain scores 24 points in final three minutes of a game
Biggest Goat – Zinedine Zidane
Funniest Movie of the Year – Talladega Nights
Alright…there is my list and best/worsts of the year…you may want to add this list to that but I don't care. I was bored and I thought "why not".
