The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Andy Williams had it all wrong.  I’m sorry, but I’ll take September’s non-stop MLB pennant chasing + NFL + Notre Dame losing to Michigan combination over cold and snow and fake Santas any day.  In fact, since it’s an election year, we get even more drama to go with our Irish-trouncing, and if you wait until the end of this post, you’ll even see that the Republicans have JOKES!

But first thing’s first: TUNE IN TO BASEBALL.  My lord, between the AL Central showdown, the A’s/Angels wild card battle and the AL East title three-way, I can’t imagine a more exciting scenario (except maybe a non-baseball related three-way, but that’s for a different blog).  Consider the NL wild card race and the fact that one of the three AL East teams could also nab the last AL West wild card spot and now allow your mind to be blown (again, maybe better for another blog).

And I haven’t even mentioned the myriad story lines decorating the start to the NFL and college football seasons!

The fact is, for dudes like Mr. Krause and I, it really doesn’t get much better than this.  Unless you want to throw in some flaccid punchline deliveries (ZING!)…

Hate me ‘cuz you can, just don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

Peace,

Jeff

I’m lovin’ this second wild card spot. Herr Bud may have actually gotten something right for once.

Indeed, though let’s not give Bud all the credit. This should have happened a long time ago.

It’s definitely an exciting time, but most Tigers fans are already talking about next season. The other playoff races are really a lot of fun, though, and some great baseball being played. For me, though, September is bitter-sweet due to the minors coming to an end. We’ve seen our last game and the playoffs are almost wrapped up.

The Tigers seem to be anti-clutch this season, which ain’t gonna cut it in the playoffs if they even make it.

Yes is the most wonderful time of the year but so so frustrating that my Bums can’t seem to “buy” any runs. Your Cards and my Bums can’t seem to score but something got to give starting tonight for the four game series. Are you ready?
