Now that the horrible one-game play-ins are done it’s time for an actual playoff game thread. I’ll be rooting for the Hiawatha Series, for the train line between Milwaukee and Chicago, which we’ve taken with a bunch of other A’s fans on a road trip. I’m sure I’ve told some of you but Milwaukee has a great system in which you can go to a bar or restaurant before the game, the bar runs a shuttle to the not-anywhere-near-downtown ballpark, and then you take their shuttle back to the bar after. Just for that I’m going to pull for them, but if they can take the vile tomahawk chop chant out early then even more power to them. And you kinda have to love that TLR is back and in the thick of it again.
