The Baseball Desert

Free a week on Sunday?

It would appear that football is the subject du jour on many of the blogs I read on a regular basis, so I thought I would chip in with my two penn'th. Now I know nothing about football (except maybe when it's football, and even then, I know less than certain inhabitants of the Pacific Northwest), but as I scanned the Internet for reactions to Carlos Delgado finally deciding that Florida is where he wants to play, this New York Times story caught my eye.

It's not quite "The Rookie", and it's not as if Thomason got picked out of nowhere to suit up in the Superbowl, but it's a nice variation on the "I thought I'd be watching the game at home" story.
