A random blog about anime, sports, and other items I feel like talking about. The above image is an amalgamation of Hanamaru Kindergarten and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, which was displayed in the Hanamaru Kindergarten Fan Club at MyAnimeList.net (the club I'm a member in).
ESPN Streak for the Cash Diary - May 23
Posted 05-23-2010 at 07:50 AM by bci110
For this edition of Streak for the Cash, we begin with the final round of the PGA Byron Nelson tournament in Irving, TX. First off is a lower front-9 score matchup pitting Martin Laird against Bryce Molder. Later Streakers need to guess the nationality of the winner of the tournament - Australian, Indian, or any other country. Entering the final round Australia's Jason Day is the leader at -12.
Soccer has U.D. Salamanca at Rayo Vallecano in the Spanish Segunda Liga and Columbus at Kansas City in the MLS with the over/under to total goals scored set at 2.
In the NHL playoffs the Chicago Blackhawks can complete a 4-game sweep of the Sharks today in Chicago.
In the NBA playoffs the Lakers look to take a commanding 3-games-to-0 lead over the Suns in Phoenix.
Finally MLB wraps up their first weekend of interleague play with the Cincinnati Reds looking to sweep the Indians in Cleveland. Other MLB games on the board include the Orioles at Nationals, Giants at Athletics, Blue Jays at Diamondbacks, and Yankees at Mets. There are 3 props associated with tonight's Yankees-Mets game: the result of Derek Jeter's first plate appearance (hit, walk, or something else), will there be a HR hit in innings 2-5, and will there be a run scored in the 8th inning.
My planned picks for today are as follows:
Golf - Martin Laird win or tie
MLB - Cincinnati Reds
MLB - Arizona Diamondbacks
MLB - Jeter winn get a hit or walk
MLB - There winn be a HR hit in innings 2-5
MLB - No runs scored in the 8th
Yesterday I went 1-2 with my picks, winning with Inter Milan capturing the UEFA Champions League title but losing with cardiff City and the Phillies. My record for May dropped to 43-43-1.
