The Best Sports Weekend Since Gilgamesh Beat FC Dallas

Only so much can be said about the awesomeness of this weekend in sports. Let's review what went down:

COLLEGE FOOTBALL
-No. 1 USC lost at unranked Oregon State on Thursday night.
-No. 3 Georgia lost at home against no. 8 Alabama.
-No. 4 Florida lost at home against unranked Mississippi.
-No. 16 Wake Forest lost at home against unranked Navy.
-No. 20 Clemson lost at home against unranked Maryland.

BASEBALL
-The Mets lost at home to the Marlins to seppuku themselves out of the playoffs for the second straight year.
-The Brewers beat the Cubs at home to clinch the wild card thanks solely to arguably the two most awesome baseball players in the majors right now, Ryan SuperJew Braun and C.C. The Second C is for Extra Cheese Sabathia.

NFL
-The Washington Redskins, who I don't really care about, beat the Dallas Cowboys, whom I positively despise, on the road. Every week TV analysts declare the NFC East to be the best division in football and summarily spend the next thirty minutes talking about the Cowboys, Giants, and Eagles. Let me tell you something, my friends: the Giants are terrible and they will finish last in the World's Best Division. They might be 11-5, but they will finish last. Pinkie swear.
-The rest of the NFC proves that it is terrible beyond words. Both the North and the West could very well send sub-.500 champions to the playoffs. Disgraceful.
-The Bills and Titans are totally awesome. I don't know why I like that so much. Perhaps the idea of another Music City Miracle.

AND, OF COURSE
-That just happened.
