Hey guys, it's early Saturday morning (1:45am) and I am psyched because my favorite baseball team won again, keeping hope alive for a playoff berth, the Philadelphia Phillies! They are still 1 and a half games behind the New York Mets.
It's Saturday in the Fall and that means college football! My hopes are that UCF (my alma mater) will win in their 2nd home game of the season, against University of Memphis, and that Georgia will lose to Alabama simply because I don't like Georgia.
it made me wonder what kind of question I could pose tonight, and this is it....
