Thanks, Dan and Ken! (And Ken, which Ken *are* you?)

Max -- I thought you *lived* down that way, though I probably have your domicile confused with that of Annie Salisbury. At any rate, we all have our irrelevant passions; mine happened to cycle into the playoffs for the first time since I was 18, so I'm kind of geeked.

Just too bad Autrey and Donnie Moore ain't around any more. The Donnie Moore story is a very sad one, he was the guy who gave up the home run to Boston in '86. Was depressed for the rest of his life and killed himself. The fans were very nasty to him.

Don't live in California; only wish I did. No, I live in the middle of a shooting gallery called Montgomery County, MD.

Matt: Congratulations! It's been nice to hear how a long-time Angels fan (not a bandwagon hopper like me) feels about the Angels finally breaking through. They're a fun team to watch, and I was extremely proud of the purportedly laid-back SoCal fans turning the Ed into as noisy a sporting caldron as any of the more storied venues that dot the East Coast.

And go Gauchos, too! (UCSB '92)
