The most inevitable thing in the history of things

Oct 24, 2011, 9:43 AM EDT

I wasn’t online tweeting last night, so you’re just going to have to take my word for it that I called this headline by the fifth inning. This one is from the Daily News, but I’ll bet it was used in a good dozen papers this morning:

    “Derrek Decks Cards and Texas Ties Series” is pretty sweet, too. There be a an eye for a headline there at the Daily.

    Wake me when Berke Breathed writes that long-overdue guide to the Netherlands, “Mr. Opus’s Holland.”

    I don’t like it. Baseball has nothing to do with music. It’s a lazy headline basically biting from a movie title. American Sign language is my second language btw, And I’ve worked a lot in the past with the deaf, so the movie struck a chord with me..

      Perhaps they can rip off condiments and “Happy Days” by writing “Hollandaise are here again?”

        I like that one actually. Or “Holland-aise sauces the Cards”….. Damn, without much thought we can even be “original”.

    “Derek makes Cards fall like Dominoes”

      “Derek Stacks Tony’s Cards”

    Oh. I was fully expecting to see some type of column saying “YANKEES SHOULD TRADE FOR DEREK HOLLAND” even though maybe 15% of their fanbase even knows who he is.

    I put myself on a media boycott for a week after the Phils lost, but was there a “Cards Trump Four Aces” headline?
