Lookalikes 17.0 and Some Baseball Musings

By: T.R. Slyder,

First the lookalikes. Boston's Mike Timlin and underrated comedy actor, Matt Walsh.


1. Last year the Cubs got swept by a team (Arizona) that got swept (by Colorado) that got swept (by Boston). So as a Cubs fan, lets hope that LA can win at least one and this doesn't happen two years in a row. That would be a pathetic playoff legacy even for the Cubs.

2. Since Tampa Bay has a chance at winning the championship I'll go ahead and say it. If you would have told me in 1990*, "T.R., in the next 18 years, two different Florida baseball teams will have won a total of 3 World Series before the Cubs even appeared in one." I would have replied with "What? Florida doesn't even have a major league team."

* denotes= People love prefacing theoreticals with "If you would have told me X years ago..." But 1) no one ever does that in real life, and 2) if anyone did, you'd think they were the craziest person ever. Imagine if one of your friend called you right now and said "In 20 years you will be a zucchini farmer in Utah." then hung up. That would be kinda odd.
