I didn't see this game thanks to my sister's high school graduation. Apparently the Brewers scored, then scored again, gave up a run, scored some more, gave up a home run later and then Hells Bells'd their way to victory. The usual. -- TheJay

Gallardo started out by striking out the ballpark in the first part of the game, racking up 8 Ks in the first three innings. The Brewers got 2 in the first on a sustained rally involving Counsell, Hardy, Braun, Cameron, and Gamel, and then Cameron's 2-run homer added to the advantage. Gallardo began to struggle and was taken out with a pitch count closing in on 100 in the sixth inning. Mitch Stetter and Mark DiFelice combined to get the game to Hoffman, who struck out the side in the ninth around his first walk of the year on his bobblehead day. -- Jordan

Practically every one of the Top 40 records being played on every radio station in the United States is a communication to the children to take a trip, to drop out, to groove. The psychedelic jackets on the record albums have their own hidden symbols and messages as well as all the lyrics of all the top rock songs, and they all sing the same refrain: "It's fun to take take a trip, put acid in your veins." -- battlekow
