    Hey, Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla is on. That's how to kill a rain delay.

    Speakin' of which, i never followed up the exo-planet links from yesterday. Should do that while waiting for the rain... (Also gotta be some good rain jokes to be had too)

    Sorry i weren't posting much. It was a fine thread, and i wish i'd been involved. Sure was a wild and crazy game too. Probably woulda tried to add some pluto joke, or that they weren't exo-planets. they were pining for the fjords...

    (And if i'm clever enough to offer a tangent of my own, i will...)

    I am assuming that Mary Jane is universally legal in the future, so my guess is that Judy lit the pipe, took a toke or two herself in anticipation of her father getting home, and bestowed him with his daily "welcome home" fix. Cogswell Cogs is prick - George has a hard job, he's earned it.

    The video was clever but that intro voice-over had me thinking Teen Girl Squad and Strong Bad.

    What happened to crarko talking about exoplanets?
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    Saw the Cardinals turn a triple play so that was pretty cool. I like the voice of the Blue Jays broadcaster

    It's ok guys, you don't have to post. I'll put you on my back and carry you through the game.

    Good first inning by Hughes. It kinda sucks that Joe Mauer is at first for this game. I want to see Jose Altuve stand next to him, but that would require him getting to first. Would be easier if Joe was still a catcher

    Sitting at 98-99 with the fastball. Mostly 98. 88 with the slider

    He really opens up... His strike foot is off toward 1st. He throws hard but the Twins will have to straighten him out.

    Never would have guessed that Keuchel would be pronounced Kike-ul.

    I really like Astros starter Keuchel's delivery. Like starters who go over their head with their hands to get to their balance point

    Do you like Vin Scully? That would be a reason to.
