Dodgers Rained Out in New York, and That’s Not Great

Mercifully, this game got called off quickly, rather than making everyone — like me! — sit through an interminable delay. Tonight’s Hyun-jin Ryu vs Phil Hughes matchup will be made up as part of a day-night double header at 1pm ET tomorrow (sort of, since Hiroki Kuroda will now pitch the day game) and that presents a few problems for the Dodgers. No one needed a third day off in six days, and now they have to play three games on two coasts in something like 36 hours, considering they head to San Diego on Thursday night. Have fun with that, bullpen.

So there’s that, and also the issue that they’ll now need a starter in San Diego on Sunday, since you wouldn’t want either Ryu or Chris Capuano, starting the nightcap, on three days rest. Is that Matt Magill? Maybe, but he’s been awful. Is it Zach Lee? I tend to doubt it, but he is scheduled to go for Chattanooga tomorrow, so we’ll be sure to all panic when he inevitably gets scratched only to protect him while Magill gets the ball instead.

I really have a bad feeling about Game 7 between the Spurs and Heat. If my gut ends up being right, I just want to move on and get the free agency Dwight Howard drama over with.

Dodgers were 29-19 the day I was born, in first place in the NL West and they hosted the All-Star game a month later.

Sorry, I missed the memory fest last night.

It gets confusing when the activity center of the comments section shifts to a clump of replies deep down the page with several conversations going on at once, trying to keep track of who's replying to whom.  It's so quiet up here at the top now

I feel it is the obligation of the older folk to make fun of the inexperience of the young as it is the obligation of youth to pay for my social security and national debt.

@Crushinator (Bender lover) If this were real, he would have just inherited a lot of money.  There was some really rich guy who left his fortune to the first natural born male to give birth

@EephusBlue Crapsticks, I forgot about national debt.  I need to move to a country that has a surplus

@Agonzymous @Lobo All of it.  Mainly the creepy gifs though.  And btw, it was Drank who really started things with ABC on here.

@apaulogies @EephusBlue Why was VODF banned?  I wasn't around when he was a regular, and his blog was pretty hilarious to laugh at.  He didn't seem insulting in a truly bitter way like plaza but as more of a silly off-his-rocker sort of way

@The "At Least I'm Older Than Jake" guy @Agonzymous @apaulogies @EephusBlue we put up with it for a long time, but new commenters were really turned off by his presence, and the whole thing became the VODF show. There was never a waking moment when the whole thread was just him saying stupid shit in a condescending way and doing a victory lap every time some minute coincidence aided his confirmation bias. This, of course, was when he wasn't busy coming up with new nicknames for "stat-boys" and claiming that he was just trolling every time somebody cornered him.
