Further evidence that Geren has to go: he doesn't know the proper usage of "hopefully":
"Anytime you lose a close game it's tough, but the guys had a lot of energy. It's one you have to shake off and start over. Hopefully the offense the last half of this game takes that momentum down to Anaheim."
As any English major would tell you, that last sentence should be either "I hope the offense the last half of this game takes that momentum down to Anaheim" or "The offense from the last half of this game, being full of hope, will take that momentum down to Anaheim".
The world did not come to an end on Saturday, although many of us may wish it had. Here's a video of Ed Holmes of the San Francisco Mime Troupe (in an A's shirt) and our beloved, or not, Banjo Man, doing some performance art outside the headquarters of the radio evangelist who predicted the apocalypse (which is a few blocks from the Coliseum).
I was very excited to read that Outman threw a no-hitter -- until I read the rest of this article and discovered it was Matt Outman of Grassfield High School in Chesapeake, VA. We might want to sign this kid up.
Speaking of Grassfield High, and I'm surprised they haven't started selling their school T-shirts online, The New York Times and Bay Citizen report on one of Oakland's would-be medical marijuana "potrepreneurs" as the Bay Citizen put it. This link is worth your click for the photo.
AP editorial bitches about interleague play; Washington Post informs the national audience that the AL West sucks; Sharks may be on the verge of elimination, but it's been a great series for Bad Boys Bail Bonds.
Have you any links to share?
