A DIVERSION FROM ALL THAT'S UNPLEASANT

With the economy landsliding down a cliff, natural disasters wiping neighborhoods off the face of the earth, and Maverick McCain managing to close the margin in the Presidential campaign on a combination of shame-faced falsehoods and a perky monstrosity of a running mate, it sure is good to know one can turn to the time-tested diversion of a pennant-charging baseball team.

Uhhh . . .

May I remind you that the Nats have the worst record in baseball. Or that the Braves are 16 games under .500 (and were 17 under before taking two-of-three from the Mets)?

Should I note that if the Mets bullpen ponied up to bail-out Lehman Bros. the bank would refuse?

(Maybe point out that Pedro Martinez was the best pitcher in the game once?)

Lil' help? Anyone?

Cast your gaze towards the gridiron perhaps? Shit's going south real fast...

I think the Astros got shelled last night as well. They should try playing with the lights off. Ike has come and gone taking the electricity with him. We have a cool front that is an absolute godsend. Mrs. WFTA and I came through unscathed. No damage except the perishables we didn’t get around to eating. Hopefully we will get electricity today.

You don't want the Mets to just win it, do you? It's all about the drama.

Yeah, I gave up baseball. It's football season now, followed shortly by hockey (or Hawkey if you're from Alaska), so I have turned my back on the Boys of Summer.

WFTA - Glad to hear you guys are all right. Seems like some other Houstonians are having a pretty hard time of it.

"perky monstrosity" is sheer perfection.

Thank you. Even if the perky monstrosity in question is perfectly imperfect.
