Hey Look, MLB Playoffs Have Started......

....and apparently Frank TV is still on the air. Who knew? Could this be an annual ritual? I've only been watching for about an hour and I'm already about to hit the mute button. No offense Frank, but no one can stomach this much repetitive self-advertising from one station. At least one ad mocks the onslaught of Frank TV commercials. I guess it's better than endless commercials of that Blue Collar Comedy guy that I believe also has a show on TBS.

A few early playoff observations.

1) Brewers - Phillies: Didn't see any of the game, but the Brewers aren't going to win many games when they score 1 run. How the hell did they only score 1 in that bandbox? Especially tough loss considering they held the Phils to 3 runs. This will (should) be the lowest scoring game of the series.

2) Dodgers - Cubs: As much as I absolutely loath the Dodgers, I can't say I don't love seeing dejected Cubs fans at Wrigley in October. No pressure tomorrow on the suddenly shaky Big Z tomorrow! Oh, and Manny was being Manny tonight (whatever the fuck that means).

3) Red Sox - Angels: Didn't take long for the Boston fans in the stadium (and it sounds like there are a lot of them), to show their insufferable prick side by leading a "Let's Go Red Sox" cheer in the top of the 1st after a double by Pedroia. God, I hate that. Fuck these guys. Go Halos!!!

yep. Frank onslaught was a bit of a shock to really made me think that is was 2007 and the Rockies should have been playing.

Brewers blew a golden opp yesterday and CC hasn't been able to keep his magic working today. The Crew is toast I'm afraid.

TBS - "Can I interest you in some dejected Cubs fans sitting in the stands at Wrigley in October images on your Vizio?"
Sonic Tooth = "Hell yes."

I understand the Sox hatred, but I'm not sure if it can over power my loathing-of-Lackey. Fun to see him make the mistake to Bay. wah.

I hope the cooler radio is kicking tonight at the Das Boot game for MLB playoff action!

Ok, we'll let the Sox win one game (and losing to Bay is about as good as that can get), but I'd love to see the Halos take the next three. That way they can start figuring out how to acquire Holliday.
