Yes, normally WD posts by now. Unless he was playing basketball by the computer again. And you KNOW what happens when he does that .....


Someone has to put WD's kids thru college, but why does it have to be me!

Not gonna happen til after the game Sparks, and then probably only if the Bulldogs win. Personally, I'd love to see a Michael Vick final.

considering the limited time, please disregard the SEC comment (from a clue standpoint) Other than to say the Georgia Bulldogs are also in the finals of the CWS - and we are going to take 'em.

Well, in that case, just bring on the new offering an hour and a half early, so we can all go to bed.

I know what the Yankee's w[h]ine is:

'The Red Sox keep kicking our as**s '

And its my favorite (and I am an Orioles fan from birth, now living in Chicago).

Impressive Cesare.


Now that that is over with.. i thought i'd take this idle time (and since i'm giddy about my bulldogs) to mention that i think Greg Norman's future wife is one of the most underrated sports figures in our era.

Chris Evert combined grace with competitiveness (and greatness) as well as anyone. can you tell i had a crush on her growing up??

Please pardon my momentary departure from all things wine.woot..

Keep kicking? 7 World Series Championships, compared to 26. They've got quite a ways to go, don't you think?

Thanks! It was the only wine writeup that mentioned baseball, and my thanks to Krista for leading me in that direction.
Congratulations bulldogs!

OK, I know the next one hasn't even been posted yet, but I missed the Donati offering last time. Don't know how that happened. I've been reading the reviews, and I won't make that mistake again. How about a labrat opportunity for the first one to post the Fresno State victory? (Utterly shameless self-promotion )

Not sure how I should take your comments, Loweel. The stuff in quotes particularly. i was simply making a joke (albeit a bad one) about Yankee wine. Next thing I know you are talking about taste, class, etc. Nice.

I was also making a joke. I thought that the over-the-top hyperbole would make that obvious.

I was not saying that you *lack* taste, class or intelligence -- just that DW has them, along with the rhetorical advantage.

Because it's not at all obvious how taste, class, and intelligence has a causal connection with rooting for the yankees! There's no possible way one could conclude that.

(the correlation, on the other hand, is much easier to prove, but that's a separate subject)
