I realize that I greeted you yesterday morning with a bit of a downer; then again, being beaten by Victor Santos and the Pirates may be worse.
By way of cheering everyone up, here's a classic South Park episode from all the way back in 2005. The kids hate baseball, so they try to lose their way out of the postseason. (This, incidentally, is what would happen if the Pirates somehow made it to the playoffs.) To their surprise, all the other teams want to lose, too, and they're better at it.
Update [2006-8-15 13:47:16 by Jeff]: YouTube appears to be down, temporarily. I guess this whole remote-hosting thing isn't so great when no one's doing the remote hosting. In the meantime, enjoy the big, empty, useless white space. I call it "Jenkins."
