Are you ready?

Thomas Boswell whets our appetite:
At first, purists groaned at the hideous sight of two wild cards, eight teams in the postseason and three tiers of playoffs. Then, we grudgingly accepted. Finally, over the last three years, we cheered wildly as we realized that an October format that virtually ensures upsets, controversies, instant heroes and continuous nightly madness for four weeks with barely a chance to catch our breath is a good thing. A really, really good thing, in fact.
Oh yeah... :-)
