Bianca, The Covert Toronto Escort with a Day Job →
I’ve posted from this series before, but I think this may be the last one. She quit escorting, so I don’t know what she does now. I sort of hope she keeps writing, but the problem is that she’s gone under a pseudonym for so long and if she were to write non-anonymously for McSweeny’s I wouldn’t actually know.
I’m not sure what else to say on the matter.
AP's World Series Style Guide →
This is awesome. The AP’s style guide for writing stories about the baseball playoffs. Seriously really cool if you’re into obsessing over grammar and syntax. And baseball.
Fuck the Yankees.
Really, fuck ‘em.
Michigan State's Upcoming Schedule

Now we wait.

Justin Verlander: 2011 AL Triple Crown Winner
24 wins, 2.4 ERA, 250 K’s.
Just one more after tonight. Playoffs start Friday at either 5:07 or 8:37. Let’s hope its 5:07, the late game’s in New York. The Rangers are one game ahead of the Tigers for the #2 seed. So, basically, the Tigers need to win both remaining games if they want a real shot at hosting a division series. If the Tigers win and the Rangers lose tonight, its a tie, and the Tigers hold the...
Ozzie Guillen no longer manages the White Sox.
The AL Central is now a less fun place to play. Although, hopefully this means that next year we don’t have to deal with the White Sox in August and September.

Every Division's Decided.
Now we wait on the wild cards. Probably Boston and Atlanta. We also have to hope the Tigers come out ahead of the Rangers. 5 more games.

Thing I Just Actually Did:
Compared the just-announced ALCS schedule to the Michigan football schedule. Two overlaps: Game 1, Oct 8th, Michigan is at Northwestern at night. Game 6, Oct 15th, Michigan is at Michigan State at some point. Can the playoffs just start now?
