notes on government, sports and popular culture
The pennant races are getting really interesting. All of a sudden, the Marlins are hot, going into a crucial three-game series with the Cubs. It looks like they might not get to play this weekend, due to Frances. It would be really cool if they had to make it up at the end of the season. Also, what if the Yanks implode
and fall completely out of the playoff picture?
I'm disappointed FOX is foregoing baseball coverage today, obviously deferring to the opening of the college football season. But Oklahoma and Bowling Green? Wake at Clemson? If we had the old Game of the Week, Joe Garigiola and Tony Kubek would be right there in Yankee Stadium, aanlyzing the Yankees' implosion between pitches.
