Learning to love A.J. Pierzynski (now that he plays for the Red Sox).

Ugh. Warming up to that is going to take me a while. The perception dichotomy discussion reminded me a bit of the Incognito narrative.

I saw another article about that this morning. I wanted to believe it wasn't real.

Nationals trade for fabulous pitcher with a funny name. Detroit receives bag of magic beans in return?

I'm actually shocked at how little Detroit got back for a very good starter who's under team control for two more years. There are a ton of teams out there with big pitching needs and it feels like Detroit had Washington approach them and didn't shop around before accepting a package.

A woman charged with killing a fellow Alabama fan after the end of last weekend's Iron Bowl football game was angry that the victim and others didn't seem upset over the Crimson Tide's loss to archrival Auburn, said the sister of the slain woman.

One of the technicians at my dentist's office is a fierce, and I mean really fierce, Crimson Tide fan. I am cancelling any visits until the passion dies down. I have few enough teeth left as it is, I don't need any more losses.

You should be fine as long as you strap a dead war eagle around your neck.

I think Auburn fans are entirely satisfied to let Bama followers kill each other as often as they want. Keeps 'em from poisoning historic oak trees.

This is why Kiffin can never go back to Volunteer country, even in the middle of the night with an armed escort to get the last of his stuff out of a dimly lit storage unit.

Anyone traveling through the Heart of Dixie at this time is advised to simply say that their daddy was an Arkansas or Kentucky fan.
