Nothing fancy today. I just hope everyone has their flag lapel pin in place and some time set aside for some good old
escapism from the fucked up state of the world all-American baseball watching. (By the way, are they even on TV? I cannot find them … oops, found them, TNT … nevermind.) Trust me, I’m not trying to harsh anyone’s buzz (speaking of which did any video of spyder in action during this incident ever emerge?) , I’m just a bit weary of living in a country ruled by insane psycopathic liars this week - usually I’m just fine with it.
So far I’ve not really been pulled into the playoff action - Cleveland gratifyingly taking care of business in Game 1 and a nice pitcher’s duel so far in Game 2 even though they are down 1-0. But who knows what evil this way comes? To prepare I found a nice article via Lawyers, Guns and Money which chronicles the many “levels of losing” from Level XVI “The Princeton Principle” to Level II “The Goose/Maverick Tailspin“. (He is from Boston and reserves Level I for “The Game” - I personally think the Cubs effort a few years back rises to that level as well.)
… damn, Indians strand leadoff triple …. must stay positive and detached, must stay positive and detached.
[Update: Found some other strange game on another channel - people skating around on ice running into each other. For real! Doubt that it will last though.]
