I've been lost

I haven't caught up since Final Four Weekend, for I was too depressed to write a word about the tourney after Carolina and the Memphis lost. i lost too and I puked. Since then, here is what has kept me busy sports-wise:
a: GDay on April 5. A rainy Gday game brings out 50,000 fewer fans than were expected. The Dawgs looked solid in the rain, and I got to see Caleb King and Richard Samuel carry the ball.
b: Final Four Pukefest. Carolina lost, I lost money and the gumbo I had just eaten. Too much whiskey, beer and birthday cake shots can ruin a man at midnight.
c: Braves-Mets on April 5 at Turner Field. Man, I woke up after puking the night before to the glorious news that Smoltz would be facing Santana. The day was a little overcast but lovely, the game was awesome and the Braves won 3-1 after Smoltz pitched brilliantly.
d: NCAA Championship: The game ended in such a fashion that I had to get all psychedelic and shit.
e: I've been playing tennis and shooting hoops again
f: ADay. Oh yeah, isn't this blog supposed to be about Bama football? I was in NYC, so I didn't make it to ADay, but 73,000 other people managed to come out for the April 12th intrasquad game. After watching the replay, I am a little optimistic about Bama's chances against the tougher teams. The defense looks aggressive, the receivers (Darius Hanks, rep) seem very capable and Terry Grant, Rashad Johnson and Andre Smith (duh) seem ready to play the season this week. Greg Mcelroy looks like a solid backup and Roy Upchurch looks good as usual. Earl Alexander may be a nice fit at wide receiver, too. I dunno. I still think this Crimson Tide team has a long way to go, but I think Saban is turning the team around. Probably more slowly than Bama fans want, but fucking deal with it, dudes.

I really feel sad when most of my comments come from inanimate objects.
