SPORTS CONTINUE TO ROLL! I MAY NEVER DO A HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT AGAIN!

Playoff baseball, are you kidding me?

I briefly checked Twitter, knowing that the game was close, and that particular website was LOSING ITS DAMN MIND.  Turn on the game and the first thing I see is cleared benches hear from Harold Reynolds talking about how this has been a historic inning that you will remember where you were for.  Great. Got here just in time.

Got a recap though, and it turns out that after the Rangers made a billion errors, Jose Bautista hit a ball to Pluto, tossed his bat halfway to the dugout and incited a riot in the sky dome.

 The word for that is savage.  Others have used it but I am going to as well, because that is simply the correct term for that bat-flip.  

Even better from the side.

From there the benches cleared twice, debris rained from the stands and the crowd wen’t WILD.

The MLB has been suspending accounts for posting gifs, meaning that by the end of this one, twitter will consist of three accounts, all of whom are dedicated to posting cat pictures. (which is totally justified because the MLBGifs official account is on top of it…or oh wait, that account was last updated 4 hours ago with ‘On this date in 1986.’  NAILED IT!)

Now I’m here in the library shamelessly watching the game full screen on my iPad and typing this.  We have two more of these games, and then 2 more playoff rounds.

HEY SPORTS, I HAVE GRADES! I HAVE THINGS TO GET DONE! LET UP FOR ME FOR ONE NIGHT! UNBELIEVABLE! O MAY NEVER READ AGAIN!

The AL Wild Card Game is Here to Rescue us From the Most Underrated Bad Sports Day of the Year

I haven’t done all of the research on this one (or any of the research if I’m being honest) to figure out if it is a yearly thing or if the calendar just fell a certain way in 2015, but yesterday was quietly a rare day in which major sports were completely quiet. We all know about the day after the MLB All-Star game (completely blank) and the day after the Super Bowl (anti-climactic) ass the supposedly dead sports days, but this year, at least (again, research=frowned upon at OVS) the day after the MLB season was completely quiet.

It’s pretty obvious why we don’t hear about it, what with the MLB playoffs starting, the NHL season starting and the meat of football season (college and pro) upon us, but a blank slate on a Monday night leads to a boring evening romcom and three episodes of mediocre television.

We’re back tonight though, with the Yankees and the Astros in the play in game (which reminds me, turns out that I’m a HUGE Astros fan), and the NHL season upon us tomorrow. Can’t wait.
