That'll do it for us, folks. Enjoy The Mighty MJD, who is back from his vacation and ready to rip 'em up this weekend. (If you haven't read his letter from Chris Berman's dog, you're just not being fair to yourself.)

As for us, we are proud to be back in our beloved Midwest all of next week. Monday-Wednesday, we'll be in St. Louis, taking in the new Busch Stadium for the first time, Thursday we're in Champaign, Ill., and Friday-Sunday, we are reveling in Bagelfest, the yearly celebration of the glazed, ring-shaped roll with a tough, chewy texture in our hometown of Mattoon, Ill. We'll still be doing the site all week, so expect plenty of reports on cow-tipping and how much more we liked the old Busch. Enjoy.
