Are we headed towards Astros-Dodgers II: Oh God This Shit Again? It would be premature to say so even if yesterday’s results came closer to making that a reality. On the other hand: Yes, yes it will be, we will eventually fall into this singularity and nobody will be saved. This is all your fault, society. Somehow.

You may wonder about the photo choice I use for these. There’s a whole section of archival images from Getty. They are, from what I can tell, all images from before the year 2000. The first entries under “Arizona Diamondbacks”, for example, have the ending and aftermath Game 4 of the 1999 NLDS. Not a pleasant memory, but it’s fun to have this stock of old photos and I thought using them quite randomly in these threads would be fun.

Also, it avoids the pitfall of “Using the same image for the same article on the same day.” Not that anyone here would do that. </passive aggressive site editor voice>

And if the game becomes one-sided or dull, here’s a Banjo instructional YouTube video. (People use capos on Banjos? That’s wild)
