Do you know what's on ESPN2 at 3 in the morning?
The National Scrabble Championships.
These are the important things you learn during finals.
I left it on until its thrilling conclusion. Despite the fact that it was televised scrabble, I can state with authority that it was still several orders of watchability-magnitude better than poker.
Mike Myers is a Yankee all official-like, by the by. A 2 year, $2.4 mil contract doesn't seem too onerous, I wonder why we didn't bother to match it, given the fact that we should know by now that we can't really have enough arms. Myers is exactly what he appears to be: a deadly force against lefties who can't face a right-hander, ever. Which is limited, sure, but there are plenty of opportunities to use a guy like that, and now the bloody frelling Yankees are going to be throwing him out there against David Ortiz all next season, and I Don't Like It.
Plus I rather liked Myers, and am irritated at having yet another player I enjoy rooting for go to them this offseason. Thanks, Mike. Thanks, Farns.
