    Smile Your Sports Year...

    Since it's the last day of the year, how did everybody's teams do this year? This has been the worst sports year of my entire life, by far. If anybody else has this combination of teams...you feel my pain.
    NFL- Vikings- 3-12, AP hurt, stadium situation, etc...
    MLB - Twins - worst season in the last 10 years. Mauer and Morneau hurt all year..
    NBA - T'Wolves - Self explanatory
    NCAAB- ISU - long conference season, honestly this was the season i think i enjoyed the most however, as they fought hard every game.
    NCAAF - I really enjoyed the team's fire and passion, and we had the biggest win in school history. You know it's been a bad year when a 6-7 team with a bowl loss is the highlight of the year.

    Needless to say I'm going to drown many sorrows tonight, and here's to a better 2012!

    Re: Your Sports Year...

    You did have a rough one.
    NCAAF- Beating Iowa and OSU made for a great year.
    NCAAB- Same as SWCy
    NFL- Bengals getting Dalton, Green, and winning 9 games.
    MLB- Don't care.
    NBA- Thunder; great run in the playoffs.

    I had a decent year.

    Re: Your Sports Year...

    Mine is the same as yours. But switch Twins for Cubs... so... that's nice. And add in the Wild with the run they're currently having.

    Not a particularly great year in terms of sports. Cyclone football is the highlight of it.

    Re: Your Sports Year...

    NFL- Chiefs have been battling injuries all season, so it's what I expected.
    MLB- Twins sucked...
    NBA- Pacers made the playoffs! Could be one of the better teams in the East this season.
    NCAAB - Played tough and was a fun team, not so much at the start of this season.
    NCAAF - Very pleasant surprise even for a 6-7 team.

    Re: Your Sports Year...

    NFL - Steelers are 11-4 with a playoff berth. Decent season, but won't win the big one.

    MLB - Orioles went 69-93. Will not improve until their s***head owner dies.

    NHL - Washington not playing well. Fired coach. Oh well; it's fun to watch St. Louis and Winnipeg do well.

    NCAAF - Maryland sucked way worse than I thought possible. 2-10? Come on, man. Cyclones were fun. My (D3) college team went 1-9, typical for them.

    NCAAM - Maryland is up and down. Hope the Cyclones can win more than 1 B12 game.

    High School Football - After winning only 3 games in my 4 years in high school (a few years ago), our varsity team is actually decent and went to state semifinals, only to be bested by our long-hated, cross-town rival. Exciting season for them, though.

    Re: Your Sports Year...

    I had over 50 million cybookie points and now only a minor million and half!!! Thanks Drake and Rutgers, blah. But to be serious my Titans have a chance to make the playoffs tomorrow, my Royals are improving and our beloved Cyclones always make things interesting.

    St Louis won the WS. nuff said.
    Iowa State FB was awesome this year.
    Illinois FB started good then tanked. The Zooker was fired so thats a plus.
    Chiefs about what I thought.

    Re: Your Sports Year...

    NFL: Raiders seem to be improving and Al Davis died, so hopefully the stupid draft picks will end. Also have a shot at the playoffs tomorrow.
    MLB: Royals fan. Surprised at the production of the young talent on the team. Just wish we could find some quality starting pitching. Alex Gordon won a gold glove in his first full season in LF.
    NBA: Not really a huge fan anymore. Grew up a Bulls fan, but like several young players for different teams. Just happy the Heat didn't win the championship.
    NHL: Don't Care.
    NCAAF: Awesome year. Enjoyed the whole season and am proud to say I was in attendance for the most epic CyHawk game ever and the OK State upset.
    NCAAB: Rough conference season, but still enjoyed it. Impressed with some of the talent that Fred brought in and the improvement of Bubu.

    So frickin jealous of what they have in Ames. It's truly amazing what Fred has done coming in with 0 coaching experience.

    Re: Your Sports Year...

    I really don't give a damn about any other teams than Iowa State. Sure I like my schools... Furman and Harvard... and I like the Lions and Falcons... but none of them mean a thing to me. Its all about ISU. Football was a good year with frustration and basketball was a bad year that could have been special... Overall, I feel like I was kicked in the go-NAAAAddss again as usual.

    Re: Your Sports Year...

    NFL: Bears and Chargers both major disappointments

    NBA: I claim the Bulls/Clippers as my teams, but I really don't care.

    MLB: Twins with 100 losses. Huge disappointment.

    NHL: Black Hawks didn't even make it out of round one of the 2011 playoffs, but the 2011-2012 is looking bright thus far halfway through the season.

    NCAAF: I had predicted a 7-5 regular season, so a 6-7 record was somewhat disappointing, but the wins over Iowa, Tech, and OSU made it exciting as ****.

    NCAAB: Disappointing thus far.

    Re: Your Sports Year...

    The Astros were the Disastros.
    Spurs didn't do anything special
    Cowboys continue to disappoint.
    Texas has done poorly in football as has Iowa State(granted it is the most fun I've had watching football ever)


    Here's to a better 2012.

    Re:Your Sports Year...

    MLB: the Braves were never really banging on all cylinders. They would unhitable at the same time that they couldn't hit and vise versa. When seemed like they were finally starting to get it figured out a fricken hurricane washed out an entire weekend of games. So by September they were running on fumes and practically gift wrapped the wild card to the eventual world champs.

    NCAA MB: the Cyclones had promise at the beginning of the season but a lack of depth and some personnel issues hindered them from ever really being able to get of the hump.

    NCAA FB: probably the highlight of my year as far as the teams I follow. A team that wasn't expected to win more than 3 games doubled expectations and beat a # 2 ranked team for the first time in school history.

    NBA: don't really have a dog in this fight although I'll admit I was pulling for the Heat just to go against the grain a little bit. Really wouldn't have miss the NBA this year though if they had cancelled the season.

    Cubs- Don't need to say anything else.
    Iowa State-Awesome year in football.
    Vikings- Don't need to say much here either.
    NBA-Don't care much about it, but as long as the Heat doesn't win the title I'm happy.
