I don't believe what I just saw!

That was the most amazing baseball game I've ever watched. Down 9-5 in the bottom of the 9th inning, the Dodgers got consecutive solo home runs from Jeff Kent, J.D. Drew, Russell Martin and Marlon Anderson to tie it and send it to extra innings. It's only the 4th time in Major League history a team has hit four consecutive home runs. The Dodgers' pitcher gave up a go-ahead run in the top of the 10th, so the game went to the bottom of the 10th with the Dodgers needing one run to tie, two to win. Kenny Lofton walked and Nomar Garciaparra hit a 2-1 pitch into the left field bleachers to win it 11-10.

Considering they had to come back from 4-run deficits twice in the game, that's unbelievable.

That means the Dodgers started the four-game series 1/2-game ahead of the Padres in first place, and after the series they're still 1/2-game up with 11 games to go in the season.

Linkmeister! How can you blog about baseball -- OF ALL THINGS! -- when the world is going to hell in a handbasket?

Grins. It's because the world is going to hell in a handbasket that I blog about baseball!

So what do we call the self-aware sarcastic type who pretends to be a Self-righteous Wet Blanket for the sake of a cheap laugh?


That's you all over, Blue Girl.

I am *all about* cheap laughs, Matt!

Cracking myself up is my number one priority in life!

....and it doesn't seem to be that hard to do. So sad. So sad.
