Bro Bro Todd travels up to Oakland to see the A's square off against the Mariners. Oakland goes into the bottom of the ninth inning down 3-7 to the Mariners. They won on a bases loaded walk, 8-7. Five runs scored in the bottom of the ninth. The last time they accomplished such a feat was in 1954. Good going, Todd. You've got a gift, my friend. Now, I gotta get him tickets to the Sox/Spanks series in the Bronx this weekend.
And in "what comes around goes around" news, Jay Payton, former Sox outfielder who demanded to be traded scored the winning run off of former Spankee reliever, Jeff Nelson, who almost broke his hand on the face of a Red Sox grounds keeper in a brawl last year at the Fen.
It's a sickness. I know.
And Todd saw the HOMELESS SIGN OF THE YEAR (possible the century) crossing a bridge in the Bay Area. I have to agree with him. I suppose when you've been poor for long enough, you've fully crafted you're game. I assume that you come to terms with being homeless and poor and recognize the stigma that comes with homeless folks in the inner city and you'd be better off with a funny sign rather than a desperate sign. So dig this:
FAMILY KIDNAPPED BY NINJAS
NEED MONEY FOR KARATE LESSONS.
I'd give him two bucks for the laugh alone, ten for a picture with him.
Long-winded Katrina post coming--complete with pictures.
