yankee stadiumPlayoff baseball is here!

… not that it involves the Chicago Cubs. Yet. Soon, my friends. Soon.

Tonight’s first Wild Card Game – the American League iteration – features the venerable old institution (Yankees) hosting the up-and-comers (Astros). Neat.

Feel free to game thread it up down there in the comments tonight if you’re watching the game. Perhaps it can distract you from thinking obsessively about what’s coming at this time tomorrow.
