I love this time of year for sports. Tripleheaders all week as baseball kicks in and March Madness comes to a raging climax.
Detroit edges Boston in the ALCS, and the Mets ruin Chicago’s dreams by ousting the Cubs in the NL. The Reds are surprisingly competitive and earn a wild card. The Astros eke out a .500 record, and the Pirates will be pulling a Clinton and pointlessly playing out the string after being mathematically eliminated in June. Detroit wins the WS, and Red State wonders whether the Tigers or Obama winning will lead to riots in the streets.
