This week’s picks column is dedicated to the San Francisco Giants for winning the World Series in four games and getting baseball season over with more quickly than any of us thought possible.
Nothing against America’s pastime (circa 1974). Remove high-definition close-ups of Tim McCarver and I love baseball. See, the thing is, football, be it pro, college or prep — but not Arena — long ago became the big brother in this country. We can’t seem to tailgate enough.
Having said that, pass me the potato salad and rolls, because here are this week’s picks:
Notre Dame 31,
Boston College 13
If the Eagles’ win against the mighty Black Bears of Maine (had to look that one up) earlier this season didn’t get your attention ... never mind. This is a blowout. Two programs barreling down the tracks in opposite directions means the Eagles will be lucky to keep it this close.
