Notre Dame has essentially punched its ticket to Miami, and the release of the
penultimate BCS standings on Sunday indicated the winner of the SEC
Championship Game will likely join the Fighting Irish in South Beach. Alabama
(11-1) and Georgia (11-1) were both No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, in the poll
last week and remained in the same positions following blowout wins against
rivalry opponents. The pair will square off next Saturday in Atlanta in the
SEC title game in what amounts to a de facto national semifinal. The BCS
champion has come from the SEC each of the past six years. While the Crimson
Tide and Bulldogs still have work to do, the Fighting Irish finished off their
12-0 regular season with a victory at Southern California on Saturday night to
stay atop the BCS poll.

I have been behind the microphone for 10 years now. In the course of time, I have covered many elections and have seen first-hand how bruising and hurtful campaigns can be to people. None have been as difficult to watch, however, as the annexation battle in Washington--which pitted good people who care about their community against good people who care about their community.

Jorge Soler launched two home runs in just his third Major League game as the Cubs beat the Cardinals 7-2 at Busch Stadium. Soler went 3-for-3 and drove in three runs while Javier Baez added two RBI. Luis Valbuena and Arismendy Alcantara each hit a solo shot for the Cubs to end a short two game skid. Neil Ramirez earned the win in relief.
