Better Know a Sport: Baseball
While this blog has not mentioned the sport of baseball in many moons, I thought it would be an appropriate time to mention that next week the MLB playoffs begin. On a related note, DudeSpin (well, 1/4 of the editorial board) sends its heartiest congratulations to the Boston Red Sox for winning the AL East for the first time since 1995. Back then I spent every day going to a high school cheering for Tim Wakefield. Oh how things have changed! Other great names from that '95 team? Mo Vaughn, Aaron Sele, Mike Greenwell, Jose Canseco, and Roger Clemens!
Today is Airborne's day, so the next several posts will be about a shocking upset in Florida (Duke's first of the year--it's last will be in Jacksonville), but I thought it important to remind our readers that other sports do indeed exist.
