Open Thread: Game 161 - A's vs. Angels

New, comments

Well, here we are, the penultimate game of the season.

I've been waiting all year to use that word.

Here are the other 25-cent words I've been holding in reserve and never had a chance to break out in a game thread:

  • Defenestrate
  • Obfuscate
  • Kleptomania
  • Intransigent
  • Lepidopterist
  • Snaggletoothed (I begged Nico to let me do last night's game thread since Lackey was pitching)
  • Arthurian
  • Riefenstahlesque
  • Brobdignagian
  • Chrestomathy
  • Healthy

Cubic Zirconium Dallas Braden leads the A's against Zero Kelvim Escobar and the Angels.
