Jays vs. Yankees - ALCS Preview
Well, hope springs eternal.
Early morning in Dunedin - 8:50 right now. Press box quiet. Flags whipping in right-centre. Storms predicted for later today (thanks to the awesome computing power of the Channel 9's Doppler 9000), but hopefully we'll get a game in.
Phil Hughes versus Jesse Litsch today and what's sure to be an understrength Yankees batting order (does such a thing really exist?). Line-ups to come.
Song of the Day: Let's do a shoutout to the Bombers with the Bronx's greatest hip hop export, Grandmaster Flash. Any day that starts with The Message is bound to be a good one. By the by, the fact that Rolling Stone only saw fit to make this song #51 on the top 500 of all time is a musical crime.
For now, let's just enjoy a Gulf Coast morning. See you soon.
