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)
 Thanks for the clue. Bascule did help me -- eventually.
 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...
Wait, what just happened??
Why is that guy on the batting team standing on first base? Is that allowed?
And just like that...
 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!
 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.
 But, his first name is two prepositions and his last name is a palindrome, so I've always been a fan.
 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.
 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?
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.
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.
 We're watching. Or anyway, I am.
It was a double-perfecto through three, in fact, and then Sonny got spanked.
 Late to this joke probably but Sonny Grey..sounds like one of Donnie Brasco's crew
Well, the game won't be historic.
 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..."
 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.
