sticky: liveblog schedule
Livebloggin’ time! The unlikely Canada-killer, Italy! The Tiger-ful team, Venezuela! Words, on the internet! 5 pm, Tuesday!
Remember that this is a liveblog, not a chatroom– not all comments will automatically be posted, especially if we get a bunch of people participating and things get chaotic. If something comes through the queue after the topic of conversation has already moved on, I probably won’t approve it, because it will just look confusing. Remember that this is not BCRS, so we’re gonna try to keep the swearing to a minimum, ’cause we are classy over here, sort of. Click the link to access the liveblog!
postscript: things we learned from this game:
–Rick Sutcliffe is in love with catcher Francisco Cervelli. So in love. Swooningly, dreamily in love.
–ESPN2 is Eurocentric, will only give us facts about Italy and not Venezuela.
–Tiago Da Silva’s pitching motion must be experienced, cannot be described.
–Miguel Cabrera has shaved off the chin pubes.
–We love fat ballplayers so hard.
–But not as hard as Rick Sutcliffe loves Francisco Cervelli.
–Mike Piazza: he says “dude”
Many thanks to ivantopumpyouup, Snuppy the Hound, anaaki, and jen for joining me to watch the unlikely but undeniably sweet love story of an announcer and a fat Yankee catcher unfold before our very eyes.
I should also mention that it was Yurendell de Caster, prospect for the Detroit Tigers, who hit tonight’s game-winning grounder for the Netherlands, knocking the Dominican Republic out of the WBC and shocking the world. Tiger cubs, takin’ their place in history and stuff.
