I miss baseball.
Congrats to the Giants, indeed. Scutaro!
The 2012 season as a whole can go fuck itself.
But I’ll always come crawling back to you baseball. Being willing to participate after suffering through 2011 and 2012 in subsequent seasons has proven that I am your bitch, MLB. I shudder to think of the horror of going through this every year, like the Pirates’ fans. I can only hope a winning season is in order, even if they can scrounge like 86 wins, that would be better than the shitstorm this season was. I remember feeling pleasant and not-all-that-disappointed with the 89-win, injury-plagued (but haven’t they all been recently?) 2010 season. That would be a nice baseline to try to return to.
Since ’69 only two teams that have beat the Yankees in the AL playoffs have gone on to win the WS…
’02 Angels and ’04 Sox.
Teams get so fired up after beating the big, bad Yankees that they forget there are a few more to win to get the rings.
(great defense against haters and Tiger fans!)
PS I miss hockey.
> PS I miss hockey.
Hockey don’t care.
Nope, they sure don’t.
In other news, Tex and Cano won gold gloves.
Too bad they can’t hit in the playoffs.
PS Is IH OK????????????
Thanks for the concern krueg. House is fine though still our of power. Daughter got strep throat and house is too cold at night for her to be comfortable so have moved family to my mother’s place in CT. Massive trees and countless power lines down all over our town and country (Westchester, NY). But compared to the Jersey Shore and some of the NY boroughs, we feel fortunate. The wind was scary as hell Monday night. We all slept in the basement as the big trees around our house were swaying like crazy. Around town some trees were uprooted but many others – including huge ones – were just broken in half or twisted into pretzels by that wind. If the storm had come with more rain (it rained very little actually) it would have been really catastrophic in our areas too as trees would have just pulled up from the saturated ground with relative ease. Electric company has been MIA since late Tuesday night. Despite their protestations to the contrary they seem to have diverted their resources almost entirely to Manhattan…
I’m very glad to hear you and the family are OK. I was thinking about you my hard rocking amigo.
Oh damn, I feel bad I didn’t say something similar earlier, IH. I hope you, yours, and your friends and neighbors are all doing well.
