Infinitus CorsairDerek Jeter: pure class.

I really want to hate Jeter. Not because of Jeter (although this was gutless bullshit), but because I hate the bullshit mythology surrounding him.

He's making it easy. Have you seen his purell dispenser?

I'm leaning towards that happening too. The defense has been completely respectable and now that the Indians are out the best possible repeat is out of play. There's no strong aesthetic reason to repeat.

Haven't watched a game in forever. Part of my ongoing plan to wean myself off of sports. Does baseball still have seven bases and a Golden Snitch seeker?

That's cricket, dumbass. Baseball has six bases and the snitch is silver.

Rooting for Dodgers over Cubs. I'm NL Central guy. But basically, it's the Astros. Only the Astros.

Sometimes I wonder if Didi Gregorious is a fun sociable guy. These are the kinds of thoughts that run around my brain while I wait for the umpteenth commercial break to be over.

Yeah, I should be hating on the Dodgers more than the Cubs, but the Cubs fans have made it worse since the middle of last year. By default I kinda have to root against them.

Still, Bigwig is right. Indians and Nats going down in the divisional series were big blows to MLB rooting interests. It's Houston or 'bleh.'
