Hi! Me again. The mysterious disappearing blogger who is your host for tonight's EXCITING game against the Detroit Tigers! (Please score a run, please score a run, please score a run).

While we're waiting for the game to start, I have an article for you to discuss sent to me by someone who read about my month of no-sleep, nothing-but-work plight and thought I might want to share this story. 

The truth is, you probably haven’t heard this story on Sportcenter or read it in the paper.  The truth is, unless you’re one of the 10,000 or so loyal, rabid, Oakland Athletics fans left on earth you probably don’t care much about this story.  The truth is, you should.  Unless the story involves Dallas Braden’s perfection, or A-Fraud, or both, the Oakland Athletics don’t make much news anymore.  We’ll never be the Yanks or the Sox in terms of viewership and unless one of our young pitchers records 27 straight outs we’re not going to lead off Sportscenter very often.  That’s OK we don’t need the nation’s attention….until now.  There’s something going on in the bay area and it stinks to holy hell.

I will see you back at 4!
