    Was gonna go with Hefty, but that would be exaggerating. Hoping you were thinking plastic instead of paper, but not holding it against you.

    (Edit: Harold Reynolds re-confirms that Derek Jeter is, in fact, an ambassador!)

    Again, I'm not one of them, but if Jeter hits for the cycle, this evening will end for a JeterHater on a rooftop in a hail of SWAT bullets.

    No, but if there's a downpour rain delay, you might be able to see him retake the field by briefly walking on water...

    Even then you would only have to wait three days...

    Petty of me, but I enjoy seeing Gomez swing hard and miss.

    Ooh, Ooh OOH, I totally know this one! Target's marketing agency, you're my corporate soul mate! That commercial soundtrack was an instrumental version of 'Kids in America', recorded by a then-31-year-old British lady by the name of Kim Wilde.

    Sure, that's a bit like recording an 'I was there' ode to the American Revolution for her, but the important thing is that Minnesota-based Target somehow found out that her song has a strong association for me with an early right of passage, and I will be stocking up on Crest, Tide (or was that Walmart?), and random rugs and linens because of their commitment to demographically popular random music in their advertising.

    It would be fun to talk to you and see your facial expressions when you say this.

    Explain/expand, but no need to defend. Threw in my towel on Gomez about the time they gave up on him, but it had to do with them ending up getting what may have been at the time better value with Hardy. Just wondering, not arguing.
