–Marco Scutaro and Francisco Cervelli, both Itali-venezuelan
–Adam Dunn= American Dae Ho Lee
–bad tattoo decisions on catchers are wicked distracting on TV
–Ryan Braun, connoisseur of fine clothing
–JOHN GRABOW IS AWESOME
–someone, somewhere, sells neon green Mets jackets
–“spank zone”, the people have spoken
–Brad Ziegler= American Shunsuke Watanabe
–Jonathan Broxton fields the ball like a bear “snatching a salmon out of a stream”
Many thanks to jen, anaaki, Snuppy the Hound, and ash for joining me in this Tigerful battle that mostly no one in Canada bothered to go see in person. We are just THAT COOL.
