So it wasn't actually a joke you made, then? I'm disappointed, I thought you had finally achieved your goal of being funny. ;-)

Nooooooo

At least I'm honest.

the guy is the anti-midas; every thread he touches turns to sh*t. :-C


But sometimes it's fun. It really is. Pythagorean said that the jays were a very good team and then they turned into a pile of shit. :-D

Game 163 was the greatest game I never saw. Damn it!

A fun anecdote:

The Jays finished the season with 798 runs scored against 771 runs allowed despite being 12 games under .500 at 75-87. That makes them the second team in the history of Major League Baseball to finish a season at least 10 games below .500 and have a positive run differential. The 1918 White Sox are the only other team to have accomplished the dubious feat.

Does that mean that the Jays will make it to the Series next year and then sell their soul's to the devil?

LOL pogo, that's a nice find!

Tigers-Twins playoff (total variation: 7.69) was more exciting than game 7 of the 1991 World Series

'nuff said :-]
