Observations of Game 2 of the World Series from a conscientious objector:

Chuck Berry and Keith Richards on You Tube
Maybe the collars of the Highlander Nine are loose and comfy but thatâ€™s not the case for some of their fans. Most of the Highlander fans that I grew up with or the ones I know who are my age or a little younger, are still very feisty. […]Read More >>

Could this be? Could this be the one saving grace for Mets fans this baseball season to forget? When people ask me you Iâ€™m rooting for this post season I now have a definitive answer, Iâ€™m rooting for Joe Girardi and baseball defying moves. Down the stretch of the season the formula was Chamberlain, Hughes […]Read More >>
