Baseball..god I love this sport.

We are now less than 24 hours from the start of the playoffs. Praise Jesus! ESPN has a nice list of 100 things they love about this years playoffs, thanks Bruce for the link :)..some of the funny and not so funny ones:

61. Coming to the conclusion that if Nick Swisher were an adult film star his stage name would be … Nick Swisher.
47. Chris Carpenter's attempt to prove a one-man starting rotation is good enough to lead a team to a World Series title.
42. More camera shots of Joe Mauer's girlfriend.(They have a pic of her up..she is a looker)
32. Watching Padres catcher Mike Piazza throw two-hoppers to second base.
23. Potential camera shots of Tigers manager Jim Leyland stealing a smoke.
13. The possibility of St. Louis slugger Albert Pujols facing Hoffman in the bottom of the ninth with the game on the line.

4 people gave us their .02 cents:
