Very, very tough boards today. "Almost before and after" was a horrible category that I hope we never see again.

Justin is a friend of mine who is very, very knowledgeable about baseball and an enthusiastic Royals fan. I have no doubt he had a hard time believing his luck when that category popped up.

That's a terrible idea. Somebody should make a poll so I can vote against it.

Might be because I'm tired but I think that was my worst test yet. Would not be surprised if I failed to break 35.
