Gotta go Tiggers, got to see some of the players as Mud Hens.

But just imagine an A's Dodgers Whirled Serious.

Wow, nice DP! (Peralta K + Prince CS)

[2] Thanks for the clue. Bascule did help me -- eventually.

4 RIYank   ~  Oct 10, 2013 8:04 pm

[3] Hm, from one of your other comments I surmised that, like me, you first came to a fairly definite conclusion (or anyway working assumption) about what water the bridge crosses, and proceeded from there...

5 RIYank   ~  Oct 10, 2013 8:08 pm

Wait, what just happened??

Why is that guy on the batting team standing on first base? Is that allowed?

6 RIYank   ~  Oct 10, 2013 8:09 pm

And just like that...

7 rbj   ~  Oct 10, 2013 8:10 pm

[4] Nope. I can get the Hudson because I spent so many years up and down the Hudson from Albany south, but other waterways in the city, not so much.

Now that's my Miggy!

Oh, and go G-new-born-babies!

9 RIYank   ~  Oct 10, 2013 8:15 pm

[7] Ah. But you did strongly consider, um... a tributary.
Well, I suppose there's no real worry about spoiling it now.

Toby Harrah is a hitting coach? Those that can, do. Those who can't, teach.

11 RIYank   ~  Oct 10, 2013 8:21 pm

[10] But, his first name is two prepositions and his last name is a palindrome, so I've always been a fan.

12 rbj   ~  Oct 10, 2013 8:35 pm

[9] Yeah. At first I went through the Hudson crossings. Kind of silly as that puny bridge wasn't going to span the mighty river. I believe it's still a seawater river there. And it didn't jog my brain as one of those bridges so I had to go along the Hudson. But as a law librarian I do this every day. Just need to figure out the right search query.

Both of you won Root Beers today. Great job in finding them, too. I made this one difficult with both of you in mind; you're good at sleuthing these things out.

14 rbj   ~  Oct 10, 2013 8:47 pm

[13] It's all about finding a characteristic you can search about. What's the hook?

Might be around if there's one Monday, but I've got a conference Thursday.

As it's Halloween month, how about traveling up the Hudson as a nod to Sleepy Hallow?

15 RIYank   ~  Oct 10, 2013 8:49 pm

I agree, a little further upstate might be fun. And since you (Will) are more knowledgeable about the Hudson Valley than the rest of us, you might be able to teach us a little something :-)

One bad thing about the HP TouchPad is bad battery life. Night all.

17 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Oct 10, 2013 9:01 pm

Don't mean to interrupt This Week in Geography discussion but you guys should be watching Verlander..perfect through 5 innings. A's aren't close to him.

18 RIYank   ~  Oct 10, 2013 9:02 pm

[17] We're watching. Or anyway, I am.

It was a double-perfecto through three, in fact, and then Sonny got spanked.

19 Mr OK Jazz Tokyo   ~  Oct 10, 2013 9:04 pm

[18] Late to this joke probably but Sonny Grey..sounds like one of Donnie Brasco's crew

20 RIYank   ~  Oct 10, 2013 9:14 pm

Well, the game won't be historic.

21 Chyll Will   ~  Oct 10, 2013 9:16 pm

[19] If only we still had that Corey guy... he would have been the new Sonny, I'm certain of it. I could also hear his warmup music: "I wear my sun glasses at night/so I can, so I can..."

22 Chyll Will   ~  Oct 10, 2013 9:19 pm

[14] Hmm...

[15] I'll sleep on that one. I kinda wanted to keep it city-centric for the time being and expand to the outer reaches of the metro area as time went on, but it's something to think about.
