For the first time in over three weeks the Seattle Mariners won a baseball game with a 9-2 thrashing of the New York Yankees this afternoon in the Bronx.
Prior to today, the Mariners had lost 17 consecutive games, a franchise record. On July 5th, the Mariners were 43-43 and only two and a half games back of the Texas Rangers and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the AL West. The M’s are now 44-60 and 15 games back of the Rangers. They have dug a very big hole they probably cannot climb out of this season.
When the Mariners were in Boston last weekend things got so bad that M’s manager Eric Wedge shaved off his horseshoe mustache.
Well, it could have been worse. The 1899 Cleveland Spiders (who had a 24-game losing streak en route to a won loss record of 20-134) were so bad they stopped playing home games.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
