the end of the world
I don't know what's up with the weather, but I guess it's appropriate since hell is freezing over... whoops, wrong link. Aside from showing why the Red Sox drafted him in the first place, Suppan's boner* seemed, miraculously, to erase Pesky's (which never happened anyway). History is literally being undone here.
* Supposedly, a friend's dad's patient's father (really) fell out of the Polo Grounds grandstand and died after Merkle's boner. Sorry, I just wanted to say "Merkle's boner." Also: "Enos Slaughter."
Anyway, here's more Salone news from the Times, IHT, Craig Laban's articles for the Inquirer [with bonus article on attempts to revive the American Chestnut], and "Il Principe" Carlo's own take in La Stampa.
The real stunner, today, though, is the LA Times's willingness to acknowledge that California is not a great place to make wine. Scandale!
