I saw Captain America last night. It was way better than the first few innings of the Tigers-Dodgers game.

Henry Aaron is NOT The Home Run King. That sounds like I’m going to follow with some rant about Barry Bonds breaking his record and how terrible that was … but I’m not.

Does winning on Opening Day mean anything? I dunno, ask Oakland and Seattle.
