Like this quote from Tribe skipper Eric Wedge:

"I don't give a damn who wins between Chicago and Minnesota. I gave a damn what we do."

Often this would seem inauthentic, but given Wedge's straight-ahead personality and the fact that both Minnesota (2004) and Chicago (2005) kept the Tribe out of the postseason, I buy into it. And I like it. I wanted this deal both ways - I wanted to smack up both the Twins and the Socks, and still have Minny advance, and I might just get my wish. Go Tribe.

Not sure where to put this, but RIP Paul Newman. I admire his commitment to charity, and Slap Shot is the greatest hockey movie ever.
