I know I didn't warn you about this but my dad was kind enough to answer some questions I wanted to answer.
That's what I like about my dad. He always takes the liberty to take some time out of his life to do special things for me.
I know I do this a lot but when I have really nothing to talk about, I just decide to answer questions from my readers or my family. Today I decided to answer my dad's questions. But I will only do this occansionally for your information. Just something to tell you about.
And yes, I love my dad!
I have a few questions, 8 to be exact, and for you dad, I'll try to answer them with all the explanation I can.
So without further ado, I present to you...Evan's Sports Machine: Answering My Dad's Questions
But before I start, I have a combination of questions most of them are sports questions. Other ones are you know... not sports questions. You'll just have to read this post if you want to see what other questions there are.
So here I go.When did you start this blog?
Well I can remember that. It was over 1 year, and 3 months ago, in July 2006. I'll have to check my blog and see what day in July I started Evan's Sports Machine.What made you start your blog?
I was with you and the whole family on spring break in Myrtle Beach remember, dad? Anyways, when we were driving back to Byron Center on that painful 16 hour drive and we stopped at a gas station and I bought a Sports Illustrated magazine.
No need to know the price, right?
A few days after we got home from South Carolina I was reading the magazine and I saw a bunch of sports blogs e.g. Deadspin.com.
Then I saw this Minnesota Twins blog (yeah, you know him, Aaron Gleeman) and I wanted to see what it looked like.
I read his blog and I thought about having a blog. I asked my dad and he said a definite yes! That's the start of this blog, Evan's Sports Machine.
You know, this is my favorite website so far. Evan's Sports Machine will go on forever!!! (I hope.) :)What do the Tigers need to do in the offseason to make it to the playoffs next year?
I thought "tough question" when my dad asked me this. But I figured it out..
There's a couple Tigers' players (example: Brandon Inge) need a couple areas to improve on. Remember, nobody's perfect.
That's my answer: improvement on a couple areas for each player. Plus, Jim Leyland is back this year again. He's doing good so far and he might lead the Tigers to being the 2008 World Series Champions.How do you see the Pistons doing this year?
They look hot, they look fierce, they look like they could be NBA Finals Champions once more.
Chauncey and the whole team looks in good shape. It's the NBA Finals or bust for the Pistons in the 2008 season this year.Who was the MVP for the Tigers this year (in your opinion)? Why?
Obviously Maggs. Why? Because he led the American League in batting average. Got a batting title :), lead the Tigers in home-runs and probably but I'm not positive in RBIs
But here are honorable mentions for the Detroit Tigers' MVP award: Curtis Granderson, Placido Polanco, Carlos Guillen, Jair Jurrjens.Will the Lions make the playoffs this year?
Let me think about it, no. They won't because they still have a couple tough teams on their schedule this year and if they did make the playoffs, they would get clobbered by the Patriots, Colts or Cowboys.
Not this year, Detroit.The New England Patriots are undefeated so far. Will they go undefeated throughout the whole season?
That's also a no. I don't think any NFL team has gone undefeated before and it seems like Tom Brady is unstoppable. Well, technically he is with receivers Dante Stallworth and Randy Moss, guys with good hands.
But I think, some point in this season, they're going to lose at least 1 game. But not today, they play the Miami Dolphins who haven't won a single game this season.
And for the last question...What's something nobody knows about you?
Well I'm glad I didn't choose a real personal one. But something you didn't know about me is that I hate pickles but I actually LIKE THE RELISH on my hamburgers and hot dogs sometimes.
I just had a (homemade) hamburger with pickle relish on it along side with the regular condements you know, ketchup and mustard.
Also, I usually have onions on my hamburger and occasionally some lettuce on the hamburger but my dad probably didn't know where the lettuce was. And I just didn't feel like having onions yesterday.
That's it! Also the Red Sox go into a GAME 7 at Fenway Park tonight after a 12-2 win last night. They were down 3-1 and all of a sudden, they roar back.
I hope they make it to the World Series and beat the Rockies!!! Good luck tonight Boston! I'll be watching you tonight.
