Sports Chowdah Recap for October 12th: That DejaVu Philling- Familiar NLCS rematch; Halos/Evil Empire in ALCS; How Now Seau?; Wagner to Shut it Down?

Two teams I don't particularly care for met on Monday Night Football- the Jets and Dolphins at Landshark Stadium in Miami. Having said that, it was a great game, actually and Miami went up 31-27 on a 2-yard keeper by running back Ronnie Brown with 10 seconds left in the game. And the look on Joe Namath's face was priceless....oops...wait- did I say Joe Namath? I meant Mark Sanchez.

Other NFL News: Talk show host Rush Limbaugh's bid to purchase the St. Louis Rams has met with opposition from other owners and Comissioner Roger Godell. Colts owner Jim Irsay was quoted as being against the proposed sale [unless Limbaugh got a bunch of Mayflower moving vans together in the middle of the night and moved the team to another city unannounced- NANESB!]

Versus Network is reporting that Junior Seau has come out of retirement and reached a deal with the New England Patriots.

The Phillies will advance to an NLCS rematch with the Dodgers, despite some awesome-looking baserunning/jumping from Dexter Fowler in the 8th inning as he hurdled over Chase Utley on his way to 2nd base. The Rockies went ahead 4-2 in the bottom of the 8th, only to have closer Huston Street give up three unanswered runs in the top of the 9th on Monday. Philadelphia wins the game 4-5 and the series 3 games to 1 and goes on to face the Dodgers Thrusdat. The Rockies managed to last a little longer than the Carinals, Twins or Red Sox.

Randy Wolf is scheduled to get the start for Los Angeles and Cole Hammels is listed as the starter for Philadelphia.

The ALCS is scheduled to start Friday night at Yankee Stadium with John Lackey getting the start for the visiting Angels and CC Sabathia going for the Yankees.

Other MLB News: ESPN reports that Red Sox pitcher Bill Wagner may announce his retirement.

The Boston Bruins lost to the Colorado Avalanche Monday night at TD Banknorth Garden on a shorthanded goal by David Jones. This brings the Bruins record to 2-3-0 for the season so far.
