    Fish related players are always great. If I was starting out, I'd be Dan Walleye.

    Are you ok with coming off the bench initially? Trout and Carp are penciled in as starters in the fishfield, with Salmon racing to get back into shape. SS Minnow is serving a long suspension, but be ready.

    PS. Missed how volleyball turned out. Weird to ask for update repeat?

    Will the Twins earn World Series home field advantage from this... errr, contest? Nee to know so that I can adjust outrage over KF being pulled after zero-run, 2-K first.

    Grrr, or whatever.

    Ok, on plane, 10-1 I miss Perkins pitching when they turn tvs off to do safety sermon in both languages, of which the French version takes 45 minutes longer. Then try to sell me ppv movies for $57 each, in both languages.

    Bi-lingualism, gotta love it.

    That was a good AS game. I'm in the minority, but the fawning over Jeter didn't bother me. He's been one of the faces of the game for a long time, with never a hint of scandal, and he deserves some recognition. Lots of praise for Target Field, MSP looked great on TV, the crowd was into it. Hats off to Ferrell for getting the two Twins in to finish it.

    And now no baseball for a couple days. That part sucks, of course.

    It bothered me, but in much the same way a that visit to the dentist does. It's unpleasant and an inconvenience, but it's better than the alternative.

    His defensive prowess was overstated in his 30's, but for fewer years than his offense was understated. He spent his entire career in a media/fan crucible that illuminates some stars and immolates others. And as USC's good call alluded to, his career overlapped a good share of RoidGate, minus the accusations.

    And the T-birds flew over the right stadium.

    Just got back from the game. It probably wasn't on TV, but Perkins' face was on the jumbotrons after the second out of the ninth inning. The mixture of awe, happiness, and childlike wonder written on his face was easily the best part of the entire game.

    I could hear his inner monologue: "This is actually happening. This is real life. Should I pinch myself? ..."

    Amazing.

    In the end, Bill Smith traded Johan Santana for Jim Hoey. Think about that.
