While I'm still celebrating the A's Division title, I have to tip my hat to Miguel Cabrera. The first triple crown in 45 years. People who vote Trout for MVP should never be allowed to vote again, because they are fucking idiots.
The A's fans are the best. That place was rowdy fucking loud, to the point where after Fielder hit the solo HR in the 4th, Verlander was caught on camera screaming, "SHUT THE FUCK UP," and the camera following Fielder to the dugout was close enough to hear him screaming, "SHUT UP, SHUT UP." I'm all for celebration, but it seemed really classless that two of the good guys in baseball would be smack talking fans for being too loud? Keep it up fans.
I do believe in Karma, and Fielder later made an error leading to the first A's run (even though it should have been ruled a hit), and the A's came back and won in the 9th. Here's hoping the Karma gods haven't let Verlander off the hook just yet...
Wow, I didn't even see that. I was in a pickle Sunday, unable to find a seat at the bar where I could see both the NFL and MLB. The A's game was on in the back corner, so I was running back and forth at the end of the game. I saw the comebacker, and immediately went back to the other room to watch NFL, so I missed the kiss by a couple seconds. What a douche.
I have no idea what to do with myself. The weather is too crappy to do anything outside, I'm not working late, there's no baseball game on tonight, no NFL, no college football, and the NBA hasn't started yet. I'm watching thousands sing along to Biffy Clyro on Palladia. It must be cold there, because only one is shirtless. "I Still Believe" is now my official boredom anthem. I haven't been bored in like eight months. Maybe I'll call my parents, or maybe I'll go back to work. BASEBALL, WHERE HAVE YOU GONE???
