Breaking Bad season finale open thread 20

Any guesses on body count? Do we see the Bear-Scorching Event? What’s the season-bridging cliffhanger? I’m guessing: 2: Walt, Jr. and Jesse Yes Walt and Chicken Man and DEA Guy in a standoff

Final day of May game thread 25

For the final time in the decade of the 2000’s, your Oakland Athletics take the field for a game in the month of May.  So far in May 2009 they are 10-18.  The 18 losses this month tie for the third-worst month of the decade (20 losses each in August 2008 and May 2005; the ...

Whatever. 25

A’s up 1-0 top 1st on a Suzuki GR2B. Buck DL’ed. Gray down. Petit and Cunningham up. Geren deathwatch in effect.

No, after *you*, Alphonse: game thread 052909 51

Heh. 2-2 on Buck HR.

Three hours left to argue politics: DLD 052909 43

Slusser fluffer on Woooozuki It’s against my better judgment to provide a link to this idiot, but Ostler has a not-half-bad (albeit all-stupid) feature column on Breslow I never realized I was a libertarian (OK, yeah, there’s an article somewhere on this once every 2 years or so … but it never stops being entertaining) ...

Off-DLD 052809: I got yer urinal trough right here 190

The A’s and Texas both have days off today, but play a doubleheader tomorrow. So it’s up to us, here, now, to maintain peak readiness. 1. And they say his ghost walks the halls, haunting those who make crude sex jokes about his name. Or so I choose to recast this story, in which a ...

DLD 5/27/09: Indiana Jones must not suffer the ignominy of BPro Idol 39

Oh get a grip: It is condescending on BPro’s part to evaluate him as if he’s some unpolished, unpublished kid. Brian is already a star. Give him the 1000$, and be thankful he’s being a good sport in being forced to go through this. I haven’t been following the contest, but for crying out loud, ...

Crosby in at 1B again after Nomar was a late scratch (as DH). Just cut them both. Maybe. Oh, and cut Rajai too. A’s down 2-0 but threatening.
