The most wonderful time of the year 

It's the most wonderful time of the year...
Bah humbug, forget Christmas, the fall is the most wonderful time of the year. Baseball pennant races and playoffs, football in full swing, hockey getting started. Hey, there was even a great golf tournament last weekend.

While the spring with the Stanley Cup, Memorial Cup, and spring training baseball definitely has its moments, there's still nothing like the autumn.

In the final week of the season, the Yankees are fighting with the Sox and Indians for the division and wild card. After 10 years of watching the Yankees suck mightily, I've spent the last 10 falls watching them in the playoffs annually. Knowing that they may be on the verge of sucking again with most of their roster now on the decline (we saw a glimpse with the 11-19 start), a last hurrah in the playoffs this year woud be sweet.

NFL football is in full swing, and along with the games come 2 fantasy leagues and a pick 'em pool.

Today is Gades game day. While things have been dire lately, with they're still well within striking distance of the playoffs.

Today is also Sens game day. Hasek plays his first full game in a Sens uniform and only three days to go until my first visit to the Corel Centre.

Fun times.
