Roll the Blogosahedron: Let’s Dance!
So I rolled the ol’ 20-sided Blogosahedron this week and I think I rolled a critical hit, but you should be the one to decide that. We have recently enjoyed some wild card baseball. Some people may think that this wild card thing has been around for quite a while, but that’s not true – it’s only been around for 10 years. Way back in 1993 the owners voted to add the wild card into baseball. There was only 1 dissenting vote…
For a little bit of science, there is the new super-high-tech NHL jersey. And if you think those jerseys are stupid, check out what Dallas considers professional journalism.
Tim McCarver may be professional, but it turns out that it took him until ALCS Game 4 to realize that to get multiple runs, getting 1 run is better than getting 0 runs:
Believe it or not, Joe, in 2007 when a team led off an inning with a home run, it led to more multiple-run innings than when a team led off an inning with a lead-off walk! It doesn’t seem like that would be the case.
Now that the science is out of the way, I can move to the fun stuff. First is Friday Night Lights which, as Mr. Irrelevant points out, is a tv show based on a movie based on a book based on a real high school football team. And I will point out that you should be watching this show, even if the first episode of this season had a stupid death. Plus the show is full of hotties (male and female).
The final two Blogosahedron rolls involve some dancing and some basebase. First is a High School Musical 2 + real baseball players mashup found via Babes Love Baseball.
Second is one I searched for after seeing it on JubJub /Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and found at 100% Injury Rate.
Now I will go back to watching the Manny running slow show.
