Your so full of shit. You guys and your bullshit whining over SLI. I have no sympathy for anyone who waste money on a second 980 card that is not needed.

Well it's only not needed if SLI goes unsupported.

Completely puzzled by this comment.

It's more "Guy Fawkes Night" or just "Guy Fawkes" or even "Bonfire Night". Definitely not "Day" though :)

Looks like Guy Fawkes Night is preferred, so I changed it. But according to Wikipedia, Calling it Guy Fawkes Day is definitely not "definitely" wrong.

Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Guy Fawkes Day, Bonfire Night and Firework Night, is an annual commemoration observed on 5 November, primarily in Great Britain.

Didn't understand xkcd: Salvage. When I read the explanation it didn't help me guffaw. xkcd is funny most of the time, but every once in a while something like this happens and I just scratch my head.

This isn't a zero sum game. Doing something positive for one person is not automatically doing something negative to everyone else.

I'd say he needs a fake doobie, but you'd probably end up cleaning it after he's eaten it.

So Gunnar was Bark Marley? Did he howl "No woman, no bark?" Is there a pic out there this costume is based on, b/c at first I thought he was one of Santa's elves.

Found a shot online of another dog wearing it that shows the colors better and the writing on the back... I'll still try to get a better picture of the Gunnar-mon, but it is tough to get him to sit still.

The umpires have given Mets pitchers larger strike zones. Reference: Grantland article. It's in the third section.

Interestingly, that part of article is not about bad calls, it's about the influence of the catcher on balls and strikes, as they credit/blame each team's catcher for the discrepancies. However, it does show in numbers just how many bad calls they've been making, and I think it's time baseball just started calling pitches with technology.

Speaking of Fox, I was amazed at the delay when their broadcast truck went down, as if it somehow diminished the game to lose Joe Buck's commentary (though I do like Harold Reynolds). I really think they believe their broadcasters are somehow a draw beyond the game itself.

Joe Buck is terrible.

I don't know anyone who likes him. Why is he always on my TV?

Oh damn... now we can't be friends.

Haha, I don't really watch many national baseball broadcasts, so it's altogether possible I'd hate him in the long run (Hell, I'm a Giants fan who has grown to dislike Phil Simms as a football broadcaster), but in that group he comes off as the voice of reason.

Actually, I am most surprised I can stand him at all just because of that squeaky voice. Either way, as a trio their team is just dreadful.

No Mets comments from Blue? Guess the pressure is mounting and he's feeling superstitious about jinxing them by talking about it?

The jinx theory is a fascinating insight. I don't want to derail them when they are on a roll, right?

Actually I'm aware that most are not that interested in the amount I ramble about sports as it is, so I was refraining from commenting on the daily goings on.

But I guess it seems like I'm shirking a ball busting or something. So if my thoughts on this really are of interest, here they are: the Royals look great so far, and the Mets don't. And no, I am not happy that my team is down 2-0 in the series... apologies to anyone who lost money betting I would be. It's not over, but it's obviously an uphill climb, and tonight is a must-win.

Also, the home plate umpiring has been atrocious for both teams, as ball and strike calls are awful... if Fox used the strike tracker like TBS does it would look like a comedy.

They told me I had to come after two years, but I'll admit I haven't done so strictly because having to drink that poison is still one of the more vile memories I have of my entire lifetime.

From my experience, their two-year recommendation is based on the chances of catching something in time based on your prior result, so that's not something I'd want to mess with.

Apparently you can take that stuff in pill form now, so I may check into that.

Whatever makes it work, I do hope you will go back.

Yeah, they have a few different models... I guess the one I have is actually called the Yankee Tipper. Here it is in action.

And that is exactly how it works in practice.

Very cool. Probably dumps the bigger birds like crows and jays too, eh?

Jays are fine, and we get big grackles who can work the feeder too as long as they go one at a time, especially if they cooperate by letting smaller birds use the opposite side of the perch so it balances better. But yes, crows are just too heavy to work the system, which is probably good, because I'm sure a small murder of crows could empty the feeder in a couple of hours.

Yeah, no bears in this area... I remember my dad having a couple of bear incidents with his feeders in the country, though. Definitely a complication where that happens.

As for squirrel-proofing, I will again recommend Droll Yankees. I have a Droll Yankee Dipper, and it remains 100% unbreached. In fact, after years of futility the squirrels don't even try anymore, they just scavenge for fallen seed on the ground.

Thanks for the recommendation Blue, Im a fan of Patrick Stewart so will try and find the first season somewhere.

Well, I'm not sure how much of a recommendation that is, it's certainly not unqualified. But I certainly hope there are others out there who like it as much as I did.

Yes, our boys in blue won over the other guy's boys in blue.

I did think it was funny that the final four teams use almost the exact same shade of royal blue as their main uniform colors.

Since we don't do cable, I am looking forward to finally being able to watch the series games on broadcast TV. But listening to the games on the radio was somewhat nostalgic.

KC welcomes the NY Mets, enjoy our 70s ballpark, which I think holds up well despite it's age. Welcome

Indeed... though the K is a scary place to visit. And welcome KC to our faux 50s park. It should be a bit more pleasant than our 60s park was, as Shea didn't even hold up into the 70s.
