Stairsy makes Boof go poof

First inning grand slams are awesome, especially when they come from Matt Stairs.

We missed most of the first inning last night, so imagine our shock when we tune in and see the score at 4-3 before the sixth out of the game had been registered. Especially with Halladay on the mound, who deserved the extra run support for once.

Other things to like about last night's game:
  • Two hits for Brad Wilkerson.
  • Doc fighting back, and somehow becoming a strikeout pitcher again.
  • That slider that Brian Tallet threw in the eighth to strike out Brendan Harris. That was so nasty, we had Janet Jackson songs running through our head for the rest of the night.
  • Getting six runs on six hits, while holding the Twins to five runs on eleven hits.
Taking some time away from blogging to spend more time with work
Unfortunately, the real world has crept into our life and left us with a monstrous stack of work (real work!), so unless the Jays sign Barry Bonds or trade for Adam Dunn, things might be a tad slower in this corner in the coming days.

We could really use an intern.

What about the "heads-up veteran play" of Greg Zaun to get Delmon Young (I think, too lazy to look it up) at first?

Play of the day goes to Manny though. Catch the ball, climb the wall, and high-five a fan. Give this guy a Gold Glove already!

What the fuck, anonymous!

We're in our 13th hour of work, dopey as all shit, trying to eek out one last fucking turd of usefulness, and when we come here for a few seconds of respite, all you can do is pop in a link to a n almost four-day-old Griffin story?

Gargh! C'mon! Get in fucking game, jackass!

A work intern or a blog intern?

Both!

Geez, Tao. You're as grumpy as McCown and Griffen combined.
