Walk-off grand slams

Since my Nationals lost to the Cubs last week in the most humiliating way ever, I was  surprised to see this humiliation is pretty common:

Game 7, 1952 World Series

This is the full game. And look at all the Hall of Famers: Mickey Mantle, Jackie Robinson, Yogi Berra, Roy Campanella, Phil Rizzuto, Pee Wee Reese. And they’re all in their prime.

It’s more impressive than an All-Star Game.


No World Series game has ever been played in 100 degree weather

Until yesterday:

When I tuned into the game last night at 8 p.m. Eastern time, it was 103 degrees in Los Angeles. And it was outdoors, so there was no dome for relief.

One reason it’s never been that hot in a World Series before?


She predicted 97 degrees. It was 103. That sucks.

But the krap koddled klown chosen by pump truppets says climate change is a Chinese ruse designed to steal coal mining jobs, and our friends on the right* say we should keep politics out of the World Series.

(*A reminder: They aren’t our friends. They’re trying to kill us.)
