First Brian, now Marcus:
Former Padres second baseman Marcus Giles was arrested early Wednesday morning on charges of domestic battery involving his wife, El Cajon Police Sgt. Fenton Sue said. Sue said police were called to Interstate 8 at Greenfield Drive at 3:20 a.m. by California Highway Patrol officers who were with Giles, 31, and his wife, who were in a vehicle that was pulled over, Sue said. It's unclear if it was the CHP officers who had stopped the car.
1. Play emotionally-draining game;
2. Drink lots of beer and champagne;
3. Immediately board a flight to New York;
4. Arrive at, like, 3 A.M.;
5. Sleep the sleep of the drunk and the red eye air traveller;
6. Play game against the best team in baseball at 6 P.M.
Sounds like a recipe for winning to me!
I know this is late today -- and I apologize for the lack of content -- but the law has been beating me like a rented mule. Besides, the first game just started. You should be watching that instead of reading my scribblings.
Twins 6, Tigers 5: You didn't know it you didn't think it could be done in the final end they won the war. After losing every battle.
Greatest game in Metrodome history? With all apologies to Chris I'm inclined to say no, simply because I don't equate high drama with greatness. There were all manner of screwups in this game. They kept things close, but that doesn't define greatness as far as I'm concerned. On the one hand you can say "Wow! What an incredible game!" On the other hand you can say "Man, a lot of sloppy play, a lot of missed opportunities, and hoo-boy a bad call by the ump made a big difference." Though the more I think about it, the more I'm inclined to believe that those things aren't mutually exclusive. Whatever: what an incredible, sloppy game!
From the end of this thing the Twins had 21 hours until the first pitch in the Bronx. After burning though eight pitchers and a hundred different emotions. Against a team who ran the table against them this year. It's hard not to root for Minnesota going forward, but I wouldn't put a ton of money on them.
