Day 40 of the NHL lockout and nothing new to report.

Wow! Game One of the World Series was a fairly interesting one despite the Giants winning by a huge score of 8-3 over the Tigers.  I glad I don't gamble on sports to much or I would've of lost my shirt.

Detroit's starter, Justin Verlander did not do well at all, only pitching less than five innings while his counterpart, Barry Zito lasted six.   The  one thing that I feel hurt Verlander the most during the game was probably giving up two home runs back to back to the same player, Pablo Sandoval.  Zito unquestionably out pitched Verlander by a long shot in my mind.

Sandoval went four for four at the plate, including three home runs.  Sandoval is only the fourth player in history to hit three homers in a World Series game.  Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson, and Albert Pujols are the other three players to do that.

I also can't forget the outstanding fielding by San Francisco's outfielder. Gregor Blanco.  He made two spectacular catches that prevented extra base hits.

  Unfortunately, despite  all the drama in last night's game, the T.V. ratings were very low.

Tonight, San Francisco's Madison Bumgarner will square off against Doug Fister of Detroit on the mound.
