So to be able to sit in the stands on Sunday and watch Ryan Braun’s home run fly over the wall and watch Sabathia pitch like a machine (bare-hand grabs of ground balls and all) was the ultimate for me.
Watching the players and fans celebrate on the fields for hours afterward was even better. I don’t want to say I’m happy just that they made the playoffs, but it’s a great big first step. Now if Ryan Howard can get the flu or something….
Also, don’t forget to check out a new feature on the Topps website on Wednesday. In one of their first programs on Topps TV, an initiative by Michael Eisner to make the company more well-rounded, the focus will be on the Sklars brothers and their sports card collecting adventures. It’s call Back On Topps.
In the first episode, the Topps brothers discover a card caper in a hair salon, and one of them exclaims, “Sweet mullet of Gaetti!” So, yeah, sports fans will get this more than others, and it should be something fun to watch.
And speaking of Wednesday, the Crew take the field at 3 EST.
