My second-favorite baseball team is whoever is playing against the Red Sox. Tonight, it’s the Rays, on the verge of eliminating the Sox, and already up 2-0 in the second inning.

It may be The End Of The World As We Know It — and the Tampa Bay Rays in the World Series is one of the lesser-known signs of the apocalypse, in point of fact — but as long as the Red Sox are losing, I feel fine.
