It’s been NINERSNINERSNINERSNINERSNINERS on this site for a while now, and I promise the love will start spreading out to the other teams soon. Probably after Sunday, unless they win the darned thing. Then the tunnel vision coverage might last a day or two longer, who knows.
Did you know Andrew Bogut came back from his ankle injury, then Stephen Curry re-injured his ankle? The Warriors are nothing if not ankly. But they’re winning more than they’re losing, and we’ll get to them when I get back from New Orleans, I swear.
There’s also a video I have to share, one which shows just how much they love baseball in Venezuela. Pablo Sandoval hit a home run in Game 7 of the Winter League Final. It was an impressive blast, but the crowd reaction carries Sandoval to new heights of enthusiasm and joy. Add that to a boisterous call by whoever announced the game, and you have the recipe for a video with an extremely high re-watchability score.
Sometimes you forget that Sandoval is one of the most talented hitters in the world. Then he hits three home runs against the Tigers in Game 1 of the World Series, or crushes one that causes a stadium in his home nation to explode like this, and you remember.
