Offseason Filler: Cosmic Harmony

From time to time I have been criticized for being a Bitter Disgruntled Crank. What people fail to realize of course, is that Bitter Disgruntled Cranks are immune to criticism, it's one of the benefits of BDC status. That being said, if I dropped dead today (and given my holiday credit card bill that might not be such a bad thing) I would be completely at peace with the universe.

35-7. Over Dallas. At home. With a playoff spot on the line. And I saw every freaking second of it live, in person. I'm not married, I don't have any children that I know of, so this ranks pretty high on my list of life's milestones. FedEx Field has been rightly criticized for being sterile, generic and pretty much the antithesis of RFK. But I was there yesterday and I can testify that the upper decks at FedEx were swaying and bouncing just like the old RFK bleachers.

Tomorrow, when the DC city council torpedos the baseball stadium I'll go back to being a Bitter Disgruntled Crank. Today, all is right with the universe.

P.S. Avery Johnson is an ass.

Elsewhere: Distinguished Senators illustrates Rick Short's arrival in Japan, and OMG has the Rick Short headline I should have written.
