Pre-Gamin'

pnc parkWhile starting our move today (I’m already sore all over), I watched Michigan/Akron in fits and spurts. That, uh, sucked. I was having flashes of Appalachian State and Toledo (for those who remember – the latter was probably more embarrassing, at the time, than the former), and this one would probably have been the worst of the three.

Oh, yeah, baseball …

Scott Baker gets another chance to look good before closing out the season.
