It had sort of registered in what passes for my mind that there was probably going to be some kind of overlap in the American League and National League playoffs. I wasn't planning very far ahead; sufficient unto the day is the playoff thereof. So it was only this morning when I actually looked up the game times that the penny dropped: the powers that be in Major League Baseball have actually scheduled the two play off games today for exactly the same time. No, really. You could look it up. And the Cubs game has been shuffled off to some loser cable station called "FX".

This is where a greater facility for invective, saracasm, irony, and just general insult would come in really handy. As it is, I'm just at a loss for words.
