Enjoy this: it's my first, and very probably my last, sports-related post ever.

Best comment I've heard all week on the whole baseball thing (to which, honestly, I've paid close to no attention): yesterday, while I was browsing in my local comic store, I overheard another customer, an old man, chatting with the proprietor about the Red Sox and the World Series. The old man – imagine a Grandpa Simpson voice here – said, "Well, it's been a long, long time. The last time they won it, against Chicago, y'know, the Kaiser abdicated a week later." And without so much as batting an eye, the proprietor said, "Oh. Was he a big Chicago fan?"

This was followed, as you might expect, by the strangulated sounds of Your Humble Narrator trying desperately not to *splorf* in public.
