Bay ball

Tonight we took in an Athletics game.  The stadium's ugly, the food isn't great and they didn't win, but the fans were surprisingly classy and knowledgeable given Oakland's reputation.  The team's slogan is "100% Baseball", which may be inspired by Bill James's description of Don Mattingly: "100% ballplayer, 0% bull$#!+".  On the other hand, if you don't hate the Yankees already, this game would have done it—their fans were obnoxious.
