And Mike Endorses....

The Cubs!

I`m going to be rooting for the Cubs this year in the playoffs. Lets be honest, don't you kind of feel bad for Cubs fans? They`re the last of the teams with a really, really long streak of years without a championship. Boston won and the White Sox won. Now only the Cubs are left.

For some reason I find the White Sox really annoying. Ozzie Guillen is just a moron who was lucky enough to get a great group of players in 2005. If he wins a World Series people will begin considering him for the Hall of Fame. That would be a tragedy for me.

Although I respect the Angels they always kill the Yankees. I`ll root for them in the first round against Boston but that`s it.

The Red Sox are evil incarnate ;). I`m actually rooting for the Angels to beat them.

Tampa would be my next pick after the Cubs but their fans don't deserve a World Series. They don't come the games even now.

I have nothing against the Phillies but nothing for them either. Same thing basically for the Brewers.

I really don't feel like hearing about how Joe Torre went to another team and won a championship proving the Yankees wrong, so that rules the Dodgers out.

Baseball and Grunge?

Baseball and Grunge?

I don't usually like mlb.com but I had to post this story. I just find this totally awesome.

For those who don't know, the Melvins were one of the first underground bands to start playing "grunge" music. They came from Aberdeen, Washington, the same town as Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic of Nirvana. Cobain actually tried out for the band as a guitarist but failed terribly. They ended up being a huge influence on bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and all those other northwestern bands that got big in the early '90's.

I`m not the only person on the planet both obsessed with underground music and baseball!
