I'm at Panera in St. Louis right now and some annoying little shits are singing Christmas carols behind me. I'd leave except this is the only place with free Wifi. So, I hope everyone is safe and happy and doesn't kill any of their relatives, unless they are in their will.

Has anyone watched the 'Million Dollar Arm' special on ESPN? If you didn't, here's the deal; a Major League scout who once was a pitching coach for USC put together a baseball talent hunt in India. He wanted to see if he could find the next great pitcher in a country that loves cricket, but hasn't really latched onto baseball. He found these two guys who are sweet beyond words, grew up with nothing but the bare neccessities and now have a chance to make it in The Show here in the states. And the Pirates drafted them, yay! Here's Rinku and Dinesh's blog.
If you weren't a Pittsburgh Pirates fan in the 70s, you probably don't remember him. He helped the team win the World Series in 1971 and claimed that he was high on LSD when he pitched a no-hitter in 1970.
Now, that's talent.
