My very first open thread! Thanks for sharing this moment with me! Awww...look at the crowd that's gathered...what? The A's? Oh, right. You're not here to see me. We'll move along then.
Up today, a team somewhat resembling the A's plays a team somewhat resembling the Angels of <insert your own city of another city here>. Here's your lineup:
A's player #1
A's player #2
A's player #3
....how am I doing so far?
Well, since the A's obviously aren't going to win a Spring Training game, based on the current sample size, and since today is also the Academy Awards, I thought I'd distract you with some awards of my own.
