Fedor - The Reign of the Last Emperor Continues

If I did not watch the Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers event, I would have thought Fedor eked out a win over Brett Rogers after reading the mass media accounts of the fight.

A true MMA fan knows that this fight was vintage Fedor. There is always one moment when it appears that the impossible (Yes. Impossible) can happen. Kevin Randleman dropped him on his head. Arlovski landed some solid punches. Tonight, Rogers cut Fedor open and landed a combination, but Fedor still won. Easily.

This fight was not even close. Aside from the opening jab where Rogers cut Fedor, and the moment he landed five punches in a row, Fedor had complete control over Rogers. It was Fedor that was tossing the larger Rogers to the ground less than a minute into the fight. At 2:40 in the first round, Fedor took Rogers down again and nearly finished him with punches. Later in the round, Rogers landed five punches, but Fedor nearly ended it all with an arm bar. When the bell rang, it was Fedor on top with Rogers exhausted.

The second round opened with Fedro taking the center of the ring and Rogers looking scared. Who could blame him? I would not want to be standing in a cage with an assassin.

With 3:20 left in the second round, Fedor landed a strong right punch on Roger's chin and dropped him. Big John McCarthy ended the fight seconds later after Rogers was left curled up in the fetal position in the center of the ring.

That is how it all went down. Fedor dominated and lived up to the hype. Welcome to America, Fedor!

World Series

You heard it on this blog first. Yankee fan, Jeffrey Maier, must be a camera man for Fox Sports. I don't think it's possible for the Yankees to have any more luck.

I love baseball, but I have a couple of problems with this World Series. As a Mets fan, this is the worst possible World Series match-up. The Mets are always in the shadow of the Yankees, and the Phillies are the hated division rival. If only these two teams could just destroy each other and cease to exist.

The second issue I have is that it's Halloween and only Game 3! We should have our champion by now! Tomorrow will be November 1st and only Game 2 of the World Series. I love baseball, but it should be over by now (especially as a Mets fan in 2009).

Oh, I forgot. There is one thing that always ruins the World Series - the announcing team of Joe Buck and Tim McCarver. Do these guys ever shut up? How much longer are they going to talk about replay? I cannot believe these guys are the best Fox Sports can buy. I know Vin Scully isn't busy. Gary Thorne is out there. How about borrowing Al Michaels from NBC? Heck, I'd rather have Gilbert Gottfried and Rachel Ray call this game.

Molly Enjoying Halloween in Cranberry, PA

Wow! Halloween is serious business in this town. It was common to find homes giving away full-size candy bars and cans of soda tonight. I especially liked the neighbor that had the haunted walkway leading to his front door.

Molly had a great time dressed up as a butterfly. It was her first time treak-or-treating. The neighbors really liked her costume.

It's Halloween!

I cannot wait to put the butterly costume on Molly and go treak-or-treating. She's going to look great as always. I just hope she has the stamina to make it around the block. I will post a pic later.
