Enter the Warzone, cleaning the gutters of a sports mind.
-- Fresno State is now 7-0 after slipping past San Diego State 35-28 in overtime Saturday night.
Or, from the Bulldogs fans' perspective, 7-and-oh-my- palpitating-heart.
-- Not saying the Bulldogs are lucky to be undefeated (though coach Tim DeRuyter did), but Monday at practice someone spotted a rainbow leading to a pot of gold in a patch of four-leaf clovers.
No sign of the leprechaun. He split after hearing DeRuyter wanted to use him on kickoff coverage.
-- We're not overly impressed with the Old Oil Can, which Fresno State gets to keep another year by outlasting the Aztecs, and neither is Bulldogs offensive coordinator Dave Schramm.
"That trophy is so ugly if you lose you should have to put it in your office," Schramm cracked.
-- Looking more and more like Saturday's game against Nevada will be a sellout.
Sometimes all it takes is a good scolding from a powerful authority figure.
-- ESPN has set an 8:15 p.m Laramie time kickoff for the Nov. 9 game at Wyoming.
Already wondering how Marcel Jensen's dreadlocks are going to look with icicles.
-- After Game 3 ended on an obstruction call and Game 4 on a pickoff, the final out of Game 5 deserved nothing less than one of the teams batting out of order.
-- Anytime the Cardinals want to stop pitching to David Ortiz would be fine with anyone not rooting for Boston.
-- Ortiz had to play first base when the Series shifted to St. Louis. Giving the Red Sox two players with something foreign on their hands.
-- Cool gesture by Paul George to sponsor a de facto "get in free night" for the Bulldogs basketball team's home opener.
Of course, George recently signed a five-year contract worth between $80 and $90 million. So he won't exactly be put out.
-- Fresno State is already hyping the game as a sellout, but let's wait and see about that.
Just because tickets are free (if you bring a voucher) doesn't mean 15,542 will show up.
Especially for Cal State Northridge.
-- Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor took off "like a dadgum gazelle" on that 93-yard touchdown, said a teammate.
And Steelers defensive end Ziggy Hood played the read-option like a buffoon.
-- NFL commissioner Roger Goodell gave football fans in London some good news and bad news.
Good news: You'll get an NFL franchise eventually. Bad news: It might be the Jaguars.
-- For no particular reason: Terence Brown
-- Tom Seaver doesn't make many appearances in his hometown, so it's a big deal the Hall of Famer turned out for the Tom Seaver Lane dedication.
Just not sure why it took so long for Fresno to name something after its most famous athlete.
-- Between all the late kickoffs and heart-stopping finishes, many Red Wavers are having trouble sleeping after games.
Which opens the door for a tremendous marketing opportunity: Fresno State football, brought to you by Lunesta.
