This was one of the longest weeks of my life. Waiting for championship baseball to start. I didn’t even mind that I had to listen to the never-ending anti-Yankee rantings of Tim McCarver.
October baseball tastes sweeter after a five year absence.
So what’s a nice complement to watching the game on Faux? Checking out the Live Analysis over at the New York Times on the lappy. And you not only get smart baseball live-blogging, you also get interesting tidbits like this:
Update | 10:29 p.m.
Mary Kay Messenger of the West Point band sang God Bless America in place of Ronan Tynan, the Irish tenor who was banned for making an anti-semitic remark earlier in the week.
C’mon Ronan. What’s the deal? It’s 2009, bro! One stupid remark and you ain’t singing in the Bronx in October.
At Live Analysis I also found Kevin Dame’s Visual Baseball Blog. He was ahead of me in the Comments section. Kevin was there promoting his nice blog, a place to find “new ways to view and understand baseball’s rich body of statistics and information.”
I was there to bitch about McCarver.
Please check him out. He’s onto something. I mean Kevin, not McCarver!
