Sports Time is always an eventful and humorous occasion, but even more so today, as Craig Filazzola, David Aneser, and Russell Varner talked sports. Baseball was naturally the first topic discussed as the World Series starts tomorrow pitting the New York Yankees against the Philadelphia Phillies. It should be an interesting series, as Alex Rodriguez has been knocking the cover off the ball and Pedro Martinez will start game 2 for the Phillies at Yankee Stadium.
World Series Picks:
Craig – Yankees in 5 games
David – Yankees in 6 games
Russell – Yankees in 7 games
NFL was the second topic of choice. As we are in North Carolina, the Panthers were discussed. After Russell announced he was at the Panthers game in which they lost to the Bills, David replied, “Did you catch any Delhomme interceptions?” Delhomme has been struggling but one has to remember, he’s playing with a horrible team. Other football games that were discussed was the exciting Saints vs. Dolphins game in which the Saints came from behind to win it.
The Elon Phoenix has been playing some incredible football. They moved up to 6th in the country from their previous spot of 7th after a whooping of the Chattanooga Mocs this past weekend. Kick returner and defensive back Karlos Sullivan earned defensive player of the week and Senior AJ Harris earned special teams player of the week. The team is in position to make the playoffs and to possibly host a playoff game.
