ESPN caught this Toledo fan sporting a "Fuck Swine Flu" t-shirt during The Game That Would Not End last night in the presence of Santa Claus, who's apparently lost weight (Maybe he has the pig AIDS?!) and wears shades to night games. Colorado was a four point road favorite going into the game against a team that went 3-9 in the MAC and got half-a-hundred dropped on them. It's going to be another long season in Boulder.
In other sports news from late last night, the Dodgers and the Rockies both won, so the Dodgers maintained their 2 1/2 game lead in the NL West, while the Rockies have a 5 game lead in the NL wild card race. Also, Derek Jeter defiled the memory of Lou Gehrig by passing him to become the Yankees all-time hit leader with 2,722 hits, leaving him, at 35 years old, only 2,034 hits away from Pete Rose's Major League record. On a related note, how the hell do the freaking Yankees not have a single player in franchise history with 3000 hits?!

Now I'm posting this video of my pals from Better Than Ezra performing "This Time of Year" in Shreveport this past July because it's a college football Saturday in early fall, and this is a song about weekends in the early fall, so there. Sadly, the video cuts off shortly before the end of the song, but its overall quality is surprisingly good. Enjoy.
